Blue Sparrow

Blue Sparrow (neon) Nail Polish by China Glaze

I like this nail polish because it has a hint of glitter in it.  I purchased a nail polish similar to this one months ago but had to apply 4 coats in order to get the glitter to really pop.  With this nail polish I only applied 3 coats.  I like my nail color as true to color as I can get it.  With 2 coats I was able to see thru the tips of my nails so I just went ahead and applied the third coat.  IT'S A PERSONAL PREFERENCE!  All in all, I'm always a happy camper when it comes to China Glaze Nail Polish!

Sally Hansen "Color Quick" Nail Pen


I've been eye-balling this nail polish for a while so I finally decided to make a purchase today. To my surprise, the nail pen is very easy to use and the polish comes out even and steady. It doesn't dispense too much at one time so I was actually able to do about 3 nails before reloading. What I didn't like about the pen is that when I went to click the put-on for more polish, I was scared that I may accidentally mess up a nail because of the way the button goes down on the pen. The polish looked as promised on the package so they get an "A" for that and I really didn't need to coats but I did anyway :-0)! I did apply a clear top coat polish because I like the shiny look of nails. The color didn't last a week.  It started chipping after about 4 days.  Overall I give Sally Hensen an "B" for this product!

Tweetup

I had the opportunity to attend my first "tweetup" on Tuesday and I must say that I had a nice time. There were quit a few people there, there were drink specials, and appetizers available to guests if they wanted to purchase them. At the end of the night I ended up meeting 5 people and telling them about "Divine Cre8ions" as well as giving them a business card. I'll definitely attend another "tweetup" event.

Here Comes the Bride


I've always loved doing hair but there is something about making a bride glamorous on her special day. The bride in this pic was a challenge for me because she had already done a test run with another hairstylist/makeup artist and didn't like the turn out so her guard was up with me. She paid a lot of attention to details not only with her hair but with her makeup as well. In the end she booked with me and here is her final style for the wedding day. I appreciated her for challenging me and making me remember why I love my career so much. She was extremely happy for her wedding and that meant a lot to me.

Everyone should "Recycle"


I purchased this new China Glaze nail polish last week and I'm in love. It's a smoky gray color that is very classy yet fierce. It gives a new look rather than my typical black nail polish that I also love to wear. If you're in the market for a new look try this color called "recycle".

Shadow Sheilds


I finally got a chance to use my "shadow shields" and I must say that I'm in love. After I applied my models foundation I stuck the shadow shields under her eyes and began to apply her eye shadow. Before you I knew it the eye shadow was falling but it the shields were there to catch the "fall out". Now when I removed the shields it only removed a small amount of the foundation but it was fixable. I'll be definitely be using them from now on. The cost of these lifesavers is less than $20. Visit www.shadowshields.com for ordering info.

"All About Face"


"All About Face" is a book I'm currently reading by celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes. I like this book because it is geared towards everyday women like myself. Even though I am a makeup artist, I still like to continue my education in order to better perfect my craft and enhance my God-given talent. I recommend this book to everyone who loves makeup whether for your personal use or if your are an aspiring makeup artist. It has before and after looks, talks about skin care, contouring, eye lash application, bronzing tips, & more!

Happy reading!

"Blushing Bride"


I decided to go visit my friends over at MAC Houston while I was in town and ended up buying 4 new blushes to put in my makeup kit. I'm really anxious to use them for tomorrows wedding. 3 colors are soft spring/summer colors with a hint of shimmer and the other color is more for contouring.

Here are the shades:
(top left) "Breezy"
(top right) "Blossoming"
(bottom left) "Blunt"
(bottom right) "Springsheen"

Are tattoos appropriate for weddings?


I think brides should feel comfortable in their own skin on their special day. If a bride is a "rock out" kind of chic that tattoos are more than appropriate for the occasion. If a bride is more conservative then she may want to opt for cover-ups to be done for the day. I usually use airbrush makeup because it lasts 8-12 hours and will hold up in humid weather! Th choice is up to you!
