NOTW: Leopard and Pearls

It's Leopard and Pearls!

I was thinking of animal prints lately...
and leopard always comes to my mind first.

I have done zebras and others, but this one is my default.

How to:

I painted on a gold glittery polish, then added randoms wacky dots using a bronzy color. After that I picked up black polish using a toothpick and made "c" or cut-up parentheses shapes around the wacky dots. Top with clear polish and you're done.

My fingernails matches my toes too, but I feel weird posting it. LOL.
And here's what I used:

Hope you like it!

I won Fekkai Technician Color Care Starter Kit from CVS Hairdo Contest

CVS Beauty Club held a contest on their twitter last month and all you have to do is submit a photo of you and your Hair Do, adding the #CVSDo on your tweet. If your photo get picked, they will send a Fekkai Technician Color Care Starter Kit.

I submitted this photo below (for fun, haha) and I got picked!

I belive they selected a number of winners (I am not sure how many), and luckily I am one of them.

Products arrive safely with a letter from CVS and Fekkai.
Ready to try the goodies!
Have you tried this product?

Dead or Alive: Urban Decay Primer Potion

This is a sad story of my professional size Urban Deacy Primer Potion.

I wake up one day (well after not using this for a while since I am testing/using other primers) and this guy have dried up. I find it hard to squeeze the product out! The tubeway was clogged so bad that no dipping in hot water, microwing and declogging with metal pin would make the potion come out.

So I settled with depotting. Yes, it is sad. But it will be OKAY.

my sad yet still workable UDPP
I cut out from the bottom, scraped the hell out of him and transferred to a clear container.

The consisntecy is not a spreadable as it was, but still workable.

Will I repurchase? Yes of course. It's a staple.

7th Annual Kandyland Party and Team Indulge

Hi there!

This past weekend had been so crazy busy for me! I had the 7th Annual Kandyland Party to work on and IMATS-LA 2012 to attend! Whew!

The 7th Annual Kandyland Party was held at the famous La Belvedere Mansin a.k.a. Kandy Mansion.It's an $80M mansion in Bel-Air, and they turned it all pretty kandy pink for the party. This event is one of Karma Foundation's number of events they created. For more info click HERE.

I am a MUA for Team Indulge. 

Team Indulge by Olga Loera is a group of celebrity make up artists and hairstylists that perform at high-end, fast-paced fashion shows, movie and commercial sets and fundraising events. We are the exclusive team for the Karma Foundation at Playboy mansion events, "Beauty Lounge" and VIP Room for Karma Models and Members.

The theme for the party is Kandy Barbie. So makeup and hair have to be Barbie-like, and so as our outfits for the night of the event. We all wear black during work, then awesome outfits later on.

Here are some pictures I can share here on my blog:

I had a GREAT time.
I have posted pictures of models I and Team Indulge did Makeup and Hair on. I try to keep my blog as APPROPRIATE as possible, but my fan page album link is below:

**If you are not into Playboy pictures and semi-nudity (bodies are nude but body-painted), I'd rather not hit the link.... just saying...**

and on my personal Facebook (request me as friend if you would like ;))

This is my second time working & attending KANDYLAND. Last year at Playboy Mansion was so F-U-N too! Since I cannot post pictures last year, here is the link--> PLAYBOY KANDYLAND.

I hope you enjoy my short with lots of links post.
