The Makeup Show NYC 2015 Part 3: The Haul

With every great show comes a great haul. For work, I buy makeup all year round (call it an occupational perk :-) so I usually try to be good at shows and not over do it. This year however I went IN! With the exception of only a few items every product I wanted to try, I got :-) (insert makeup addicts chuckle here) LOL

At the show I got...
Lip tars & Nail Polish from OCC
Foundation, multipurpose pencil & a ton of samples from BlackUp
Eye shadow palette, foundation, liquid lipstick & eyeliner sample from Kat Von D
Koko Lashes form Lady Moss
Cossette Brushes form Alcone
Beauty Blenders from Frends Beauty 
Limited edition TMS 10th anniversary brush set from The London Brush Company
The Magic Touch sponges form IMYB (I make you beautiful)
Brushes form Crown Brush 
Lip gloss, brow set & eye liner form Auraline Beauty 
Glitter from Eye Kandy
Eye shadows from Makeup Forever Paris
I also wanted to try the Makeup Forever Primers, spanking new Ultra HD foundations and a few other items but by the time I made it to the booth my Nigerian Mastercard was acting up (thank you UBA *eye roll). I meant to go by the store later to get them but never got around to it.

In addition to the items I purchased myself, at the bloggers preview I received the following i the press bag...
HD Brush set from Crown Brush 
Variety of NYX products 

Lip pen and eye shadow from Vincent Longo

Highlighter from Gleam
Invisible finish powerless powder from Eve Pearl

Brushes from Senna Cosmetis, Bdellium tools & Sephora Pro 

Makeup remover from Bioderma & Lauren Napier, Primer from Nutring Force, Bodyography & Embryollise and bronzer from Stila  
Limited edition makeup purse from Glamcor 
Mini glitter kit from Lit Cosmetics 

That's it, a lot of makeup I know and I cant wait to dive in. What would you like to see a review of first? Let me know and I'll push it to the top of the list *off to roll around in eye shadow* LOL

Oyinda's takes a walk on the dark side in Flapper

Remember when I said I was a bit of a workaholic? So I got back into Lagos on Friday night right, guess who was at work bright and early Saturday morning? Yup you guessed it, yours truly! After being away for a couple of weeks, messages form my lovely clients almost had me back in the studio straight from the airport LOL.

Oyinda was one of my first makeovers back in Lagos. Usually she goes for a very soft barely there makeup look. This time however she wanted something more dramatic and I was super excited to deliver. We went for light matte eye lids with a defined crease and a bold dark lip.

The Makeup Show NYC 2015 Part 1

Hey Everyone,

I'm Back!!!

I'm so excited to be back! I have so much to share with you my fingers are practically twitching as I type. I took a couple of weeks off for a much needed holiday (I haven't had one in a year). I was in the states for a working holiday – working of course because as they say I am  a bit of a workaholic.

FOTD | Bitchy & Jazz

So today's look is more like a "lip of the day" since there isn't much else going on. More often than not, this is actually how I do mu makeup; a good base, thick winged liner, lashes and a bold lip. Plus you already know about my love for purple...

Lagos, April 18th 2015.

Adanna stopped by on her way to a photo shoot. Her request was easy; she wanted a simple makeup look that would keep her looking like herself and a bright complexion...
