Step 2: Take the Lashes that you picked out. Carefully detach the lashes from the case. Be careful not to pull too hard because that can rip the lashes.

Step 3: Next you want to measure the fake lash and see if it is a perfect fit. If not you will want to cut the fake lash to fit your lash line. Make sure when cutting the fake lash to cut right in front of the knots that you want gone, NOT behind! Dont worry if you mess up it is a leaning experience 🙂

Step 4: Apply a coat of mascara to both eye lashes once they are dry you can apply the fake lashes.

Step 5: Now you need to pick out your favorite lash glue. I have two brand that I like to use while I am on set. DUO eyelash adhesive and EVE Pearl eye lash glue! REMEMBER if you are allergic to latex get the nun latex kind, you don’t want to have any bad reactions around the eye area..It is a super sensitive spot!

Step 6: Pick up one of the fake lashes and your choice of eyelash glue. With the lash glue you want to squeeze a little bubble of glue. Now take the fake lash and drag it through the bubble of glue. Let the glue on the lash get a little tacky. Once its gets to this point you are ready to apply the lash.

Step 7: Applying the fake lash, that has glue, on your lash line. You want to bend the fake lash making sure to tack down the middle of the lash first than move over to the inner corner. Once you get that down move to the outer corner of the eye. If you are having trouble tapping it down, take the end of one of your brushes and push down the lashes.

Step 8: Repeat step 6 and 7 with the second lash.

Step 9: You will want to apply a second coat of mascara once your fake eye lashes. You want to do this in order for the fake lashes to become one with your actual eye lashes. This second coat will help with that.

Step 10: Enjoy and if you have any questions please ask! Good luck 😛

Choose the Color of your Lips

Lipglosses jammed in the corner of every purse I carry, drawers full of lipsticks in every shade possible; I think it can be confirmed that I have an obsession… I love me some lip TARS you can never ever have too many colors! NEVER!

I love OCC, which stands for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics they are 100% vegan, which is awesome. As a make-up artist you need to have supplies for everyone, some clients prefer a certain brand because of its texture, color, feel, or even the fact that is not animal tested. That is why you always have to be prepared. With that said, I am going to show you 5 of my favorite lip tars from this amazing line!!!

Though I am a BIG BELIEVER that anyone can rock any lip color if:
A. They own the color like it’s their job
B. They have immense confidence, which you always should!!!

All of OCC LIP TARS are very vibrant colors enjoy!!!
*Note: apply, blot the lips, apply again, blot, and you’re good to go!

It’s so difficult sometimes to find an amazing RED color, but let me tell you the OCC has it down! This right here has saved me so many times on set! This color is called STALKER it is a classic red, but vibrant at the same time. Love love love!!! It is prefect for those 50s photos shoots!!

A lot of make-up brands don’t carry the color black, so when I found out that OCC did I just got super excited. Now I will not have to mix colors on set in order to get that perfect black, let’s face it time is precious. TARRED is great for that vampire look or gothic look! I can’t wait to put my order in to get it !!! Eeeeek, that’s the sound of a super excited make-up queen.

I have been a pink girl since I was little!!! So it’s no shocker that I have a pink shade to share with you! This lovely pink is called ANIME, so perfect for those sweet, soft, moment looks. This shade looks amazing when it is done with soft neutral brown eyes.

You’re probably wondering why I have this awesome blue called RX in my list. This is a fun color to play with while in your everyday life or on set.

Sometimes you have to live a little and have fun, why not with blue… We only live once right? So try it! You won’t be disappointed!

This color almost like a light neutral pink is called BRIDAL NEUTRAL, how appropriate hahaha. It’s super pretty for that big day!!!!

FEATHER is such a lifesaver!!! You can add it to any color and it dulls it down! It’s great for those days where you really want to wear that amazing color, but it’s just a little too intense for the occasion. A must have for all make-up artists!
