I wanted to buy a new camera for myself since the last one I had a few years ago broke. It was a beautiful canon rebel xt and the poor baby broke and it was way to expensive to fix on a college budget. I have always loved photography but I just could not make the big purchase to buy a new DSLR camera. Now that I am doing freelance makeup, I wanted to show my work in the best quality possible. After doing research I settled on a camera that had many of the features and benefits of a DSLR but had a the price of a regular digital camera. Alas, my baby, mon nouval amour, the Sony Alpha 5000. Interchangeable lens, great quality, 1080p High Def video, wifi (I can send the pictures straight to my phone!) for $298. YES! I will now post from this new baby.

If I had to choose one eye makeup product that I could choose for the rest of my life (I don't know why i'd ever be in this predicament) I'd choose a black liquid eyeliner! I recently purchased the Tarte 's Precision Longwear Liquid Liner. It comes with a very fine felt tip and its so good for making very precise and thin liner on clients. Most importantly, the formula is very black and that baby does not budge!!! It is definitely long lasting and I recommend it to all you liquid liner lovers out there! It retails for $20 .
For my birthday my cousin gave me this beautiful Chanel Camelia de Plumes Highlighter for my makeup kit. Its one of those products your dying to touch and use but its so beautiful you do not want to ruin it. At first when I applied I wasn't sure if you could see it or not but once a different light reflected my skin you could see the beautiful glow! It comes with a little brush of its own and its pretty OK I usually end up using my own fan brush from BH cosmetics.
2 year Anniversary Makeup
I have been dating my boyfriend for 2 years now! Time flies! We decided to go out for drinks and have dinner at Mercadito. Mercadito was so flippin' delicious! I recommend getting a parrilla for two people. Its a better bang for your buck. I really love how the brown trends are back! I want everything to be brown! my eyeshadows, my lips my blush and my clothes. Brown is totally underrated. Below are some pictures of my makeup look from that special night. I think what really made the look more youthful and flirty were the huge lashes! I usually don't do very long falsies often but it really made a fun difference with the look. What do you think?
