  • ColourPop Proceed with Caution Palette Makeup Look Ideas (x10)
    by Christine on May 25, 2019 at 2:17 am

    Colour Pop Proceed with Caution 9-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes an array of neutrals with a pop of yellow. I think you can get several distinct looks out of it, but the secret to getting more out of this palette is layering the shimmers and mattes together to create more variation--like Caution with Dead End or Drill with Maintenance. About This Series Each look idea is centered around a "quad" of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I Continue Reading […]

  • ColourPop Main Squeeze Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches
    by Christine on May 24, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    Colour Pop Main Squeeze 9-Pan Pressed Powder Palette ($12.00 for 0.36 oz.) is the newest in ColourPop's monochromatic series. The palette includes three true shimmers, one satin, and five mattes. Most of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing. The shades ran together a little more than in past palettes, and I think the palette would benefit from being paired with some brighter, lighter shimmers or a matte black or blackened burgundy. As a FYI, Home Slice and Like It's Hot are "not intended for use in the immediate eye area." Frose is a rich, pink-coral with warm undertones Continue Reading […]

  • Hourglass Canvas, Cosmic, Horizon Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Glosses Review & Swatches
    by Christine on May 24, 2019 at 7:00 pm

    Hourglass Canvas Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss ($30.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which adhered decently but there was slight streaking along the edges (and if I pressed my lips together, I could see where I did so) with slight product that sank into my lip lines. It had a moderate shine and was comfortable to wear, and the settling didn't worsen over time. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and creamy without being thick nor was it sticky. It stayed on well Continue Reading […]

  • Sam Villa Teaches the Box Fishtail Braid
    by madams on May 24, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    Megan Adams“This braiding technique is one of the coolest I’ve ever seen because it creates a 4-sided box fishtail that has visual interest from all angles,” says Sam Villa, co-founder of Sam Villa® and Global Artistic Ambassador for Redken 5th Avenue. Tips: Make sure the slices are consistently the same size to craft a uniform braid. Use steady tension when pulling to prevent bubbles and irregularity. To secure the elastic, thread hair through the center, twist multiple times until it’s tight at the base, and then pull the ends trough.  Minimal looping helps to keep the braid intact. Cover the elastic by sliding the head of a hairpin under the elastic, wrap a section of hair around the pin/elastic and then open the legs of another pin, capture the end of the hair that’s wrapped, feed it though the eye of the original pin and pull the tail through while pushing the pin out. To create visual interest in the back, spray head at close range with Redken Fashion Work 12 to really coat the hair.  Then, with the pointer and thumb massage out sections and compress with a Sam Villa Signature Series Sleekr Professional Straightening Iron to create textured ridges. How-Tos […]

  • 7 Secrets to Building a Booming Team in a Booth Rental Salon
    by madams on May 23, 2019 at 10:57 pm

    It’s no secret that owning a salon is a vibrant business—filled with opportunity, creativity and passion. While there are different types of salon ownership—sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company (LLC), commission and booth rental, each comes with its own set of perks and challenges. Owning a booth rental salon has brought me those perks and challenges, but most of all, it’s brought a whirlwind of success over the last three years—more than I could have ever imagined! While there is no true recipe for finding that success, there are some tried and true secrets to build your “dream team” in a booth rental salon environment. Essentially, a booth rental salon means each stylist runs their own business right from their chair. Each stylist is responsible for his or her own taxes, liability, health and disability insurances—but this independence doesn’t have to equate to a solo work experience in the salon. Finding stylists who are likeminded and possess that desire to work together for a common goal is what every salon owner wants. So how exactly do you get there?Education […]

    Need some faux flowers for a crafts project? How about an oversized LED flamingo? If you need something craftsy or DIY, check out Michaels, the combination craft supply store/inter-dimensional portal to an alternate reality where times as we know it does not exist. Be warned, though: 5 minutes in a Michaels is like 8 hours in the outside world. In fact, after 15 minutes in a Michaels store…you may never actually leave; however, this danger is offset by all the weird treasures, including this children’s foot spa… What, exactly, is so taxing to the feet of little children that they need a Calgon moment? 😂 Heck, though, if I were 8, I’d probably want one too… GO SCIENCE After a little googling, it turns out that the “Orbeez” in the name, “Orbeez Foot Spa,” refers to the colorful beads, and they’re a thing kids play with these days (who knew?). The actual chemistry behind them is pretty cool. The beads are made from a super absorbent polymer, and when you add water, they grow from 100-300 times their original size. I bet they do help tired arches, but there’s absolutely no freakin’ way I’m allowing one of these things in my home, because any time tiny, round things get set free in this #toddlerlife, it’s like Pandora’s Box.

    A bouquet of fresh picked wildflowers for you, my friend, courtesy of the “floral artisans” at the local playground. Translation: Connor and the other little girl she was playing with ran up and down every hill plucking every yellow flower in sight when we were at the playground the other day, and when I was handed the final bouquet, my first thought was, “Oh, this is so pretty. I wonder how many dogs have pee’d on these flowers.” 😂 Got a few things on my mind today that I wanted to chat with you about, including expanding my makeup knowledge with a couple of new books, and a snazzy styling tool that will forever change the way you see flat irons. Also, there’s a healthy, yummy, easy chicken recipe at the end that I think everyone — even the pickiest eaters — will love. It’s so good that if Tabs were around, I’m sure he’d try to steal the food off my plate. Y.U.M. As I know you know, this last month I was reminded that life is blisteringly (and unfairly) short. To put it mildly, this has lit a fire 🔥 under my @ss, and now I want to learn as much as I can about anything and everything — all of my interests.
