Make Up For Ever Pro Seminar

This Thursday I took advantage of the Make Up For Ever Pro Seminar being held here in Vancouver. They had a guest speaker of Stan Edwards. He did a demo and talked about HD products, and how the term "HD" effects make up artists these days. I enjoyed it.

IMG I received by email from Make Up For Ever

He touched on the things like HD cameras and how there's basically less room for error now that we see almost everything in at least 1080p.


Oh yeah, they also sold pro only, and retail products at the backstage card member discount of 40% off! So I picked some things up.

JDRF Walk for a Cure

I'm taking part in the TELUS Walk for a Cure. Please donate so we can find a cure :)

Product Talk: OCC Lip Tar

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has been pretty popular for a couple of years now, but every time I wear one of my Lip Tars I always get asked "what colour is that?" or "where did you get that?" or the big one "How does your lipstick stay on all day?!"

Here's the lip tars I own and I'll share my opinion, where I got them, and how you can get them.

I love green. Green tea, green clothes, green eye makeup! I think the green really makes hazel eyes and my blue eyes just pop! Here's a quick tutorial that will hopefully bring you the luck 'o the Irish. St Patty's day is just a couple weeks away!
