Congratulations Paul Mitchell



I have loved Paul Mitchell products since I was introduced to the line in 1997. My cosmetology school used some of the products and then over the years I researched other products in the collection. This new "Awapuhi" line is sulfate free and is changing the direction of hair care products. Once again Paul Mitchell has proven to be at the top of their game and I'm proud to say I use their products!

2010 Favorite Makeup Things

2010 Favorite Makeup Things

The Beauty Blender is an amazing tool for applying liquid and cream based products. It doesn't eat up your makeup so you won't feel like you're wasting product AND it's reusable! Here's more on this product








I LEARNED THIS TRICK FROM PATTI LABELLE, FOR OILY SKIN, APPLY MILK OF MAGNESIA OVER YOUR MOISTURIZER AND UNDER YOUR FOUNDATION TO DECREASE SHINE. PLEASE NOTE THAT A LITTLE GOES A LOOOOONG WAY.  FOR ABOUT $5 IT CAN SAVE YOU HUNDREDS IN THE LONG RUN. 

‎I LOVE THE CONSISTENCY OF COVER GIRL CONCEALER. IT'S FULL COVERAGE AND CAN BE BLENDED DOWN IF NEEDED AND FOR ONLY $6 IT CAN SAVE YOU MONEY BECAUSE A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY.


‎I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE EYE SHADOWS. THEY ARE TRUE TO COLOR AND ARE OUTSTANDING. I HAVE 4 PALETTES BY INGLOT COSMETICS AND I THINK THEY ARE THE BEST. IF YOU ARE EVER IN THE NYC AREA, CHECK OUT 


DON'T BREAK THE BANK BUT STEP OUT LOOKING LIKE A MILLION BUCKS WITH NYX COSMETICS.  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEIR PIGMENTS AND GLITTER PRODUCTS. THEIR EYE SHADOWS ARE HIGHLY PIGMENTED AND TRUE TO COLOR.  


BITCH SLAP COSMETICS IS A VERY ECLECTIC MAKEUP COMPANY HAS ALL KINDS OF PRODUCTS FROM HIGHLY PIGMENTED EYE SHADOWS & PIGMENTS TO JEWELRY AND BRUSHES.  PRICES ARE AVERAGE BUT THE PAYOFF IS PRICELESS!


‎TO FILL IN MY EYE BROWS I USE MAYBELINE RETRACTABLE BROW PENCIL.  IT'S FABULOUS  


‎I LOVE SEPHORA'S GLITTER LINERS BECAUSE THEY ARE REASONABLY PRICED AND TRUE TO COLOR. THEY LAST A LONG TIME AND CAN BE USED ALL YEAR LONG...NOT JUST FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON.  


I USE LASPLASH AS A BASE FOR GLITTER AND SOME PIGMENTS. IT CAN LAST UP TO 12 HOURS AND IS CREASE, SMEAR, & SMUDGE PROOF! 


LOREAL TRUE MATCH POWDER IS GREAT TO "SET" FOUNDATION OR DUST LIGHTLY OVER MOISTURIZED SKIN AND FOR ABOUT $8 YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT! 


‎THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD IS SHADOW SHIELDS LOL. IT'S GREAT FOR "FALL OUT" TO PREVENT YOUR CONCEALER FROM MATCHING YOUR EYE SHADOW.


MAC COSMETICS #217 MAC BLENDING BRUSH IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BRUSH FOR BLENDING CREAMS & LIQUIDS.

 

‎I USE MAC COSMETICS PAINT POTS 80% OF THE TIME. I HAVE THEM IN 3 DIFFERENT COLORS AND THEY WORK FABULOUS UNDER YOUR EYE SHADOW TO HELP KEEP IT FROM CREASING AND DISAPPEARING. 

 

GIELLA “EYE M GLAM” CUSTOM BLENDED HIGHLIGHTING POWDER IS THE BOMB!  IT ADDS AN EXTRA GLOW TO YOUR FACE THAT YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.  I USE IN AS BROW HIGHLIGHT AS WELL.

DIORSHOW WATERPROOF MASCARA “#258” (BLUE).  BLUE IS MY NEW BLACK!

KLEANCOLOR EYE SHADOW PALETTE’S FROM BEAUTY SUPPLY STORE

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!


As I take a quick look back at 2010 I see disappointment, discouragement, and depression.  Then I see Jesus Christ and look at 2010 again and I see encouragement, gratefulness, and Blessings in spite of the trials and tribulations I went through.  Last year taught me lessons I may not have learned on my own and I'm grateful for that.  I'll tell you that if it had not been for the Lord on my side I don't know where I would be.  I am a child of the King and he takes care of his children.  I know he won't put more on me that I can bare but when you're in the midst of a storm you don't see that.  I had a couple of storms but have come out alive and well with a new understanding.  Thank you Jesus for bringing me out and moving me on.  Thank you Jesus for allowing me to see the 1st day of a new year and new opportunities.  
I would like to thank all of my supporters, clients, and family for the love you've shown Divine Cre8ions Hair & Makeup Studio in 2010.  I got to meet people that I would have never met thanks to social media and I got new clients that I never thought I would have thanks to social media.  I thank God for the visions and ideas that he gives me and allowing me to be able to do what I so love to do.  May you have a Blessed and prosperous new year.  Step out on faith and let God use you.  See you at the top!
