Calling all Harry Potter Fans!

For the premiere of Harry Potter I wore this look and I totally love it! It gave me an excuse to do glitter-tastic makeup and wear it in public without getting weird stares! I would say that this look is medium difficulty for those who are brave enough to rock this look.

Here is a list of the products used:
Urban Decay primer potion - Eden
Bright red matte eyeshadow
mufe no. 92
Nyx Mellow Yellow
Lit Vegas
Inglot 318 Matte

Nars Copacabana
Mac Truth & Light Cooling Powder
Mac Shadowey
Tarte Peaceful 12 hour blush

Mac Confident

Mac 217
Mac 219
Mac 239
Crown Concealer Brush
Sonia Kashuk Flat Shader Brush
Sonia Kashuk Bent Liner Brush

I hope you guys all enjoyed the movie. I'd love to hear what you thought of it!

My Fair Wedding With David Tutera Experience

I have so much to tell you guys! This last weekend, Saturday July 23rd, I had the opportunity to do the makeup for the show My Fair Wedding With David Tutera. The entire experience was just absolutely amazing! David Tutera himself is SO nice. He is so genuine as well as the show. All of the crew was so unbelievably nice and I really enjoyed my time there. Here is a photo of me and David on set!

My day started at 6:00 AM when I had to wake up and drive down to Los Angeles. We had to be on set by 9:30 AM in which we sat in the bridal suite and the back rooms of the church that the bride was to be married in. We had to sit in the back of the church while the bride/bridesmaids were filming with David. We got to listen through the door to David surprising them all with their dresses and shoes. They all really had no idea what he was going to and the dress he chose for the bride was $18,000(WOOOWW)! We finished makeup and hair around 2:00 PM and we were finally able to eat lunch. I sat with the crew and we all just talked and ate lunch. I felt like I was their best friend (haha)! The food was soooo good. Panera was catering and it was such a yummmy (and freee!) lunch. After lunch we had to do touch ups for pictures and then the ceremony started at 5:00 PM. We were told to stay for touch ups for the reception but none of the girls wanted touch ups. I don't blame them though, the ceremony was nothing compared to what David had in store for them at the reception! Afterwards David Tutera praised our work and promised that we would be getting a call to work on the show again. It was such an amazing day and I can not wait to return and visit all of my new friends! I will let you know when the episode airs and when it does, I will post pictures of the makeup that I was in charge of and some behind the scene photos!

I love you all and hope you are doing well :)

Kandee Johnson, Kandee Johnson, Kandee Johnson.

Today I posted a video Kandee Johnson's presentation at IMATS LA 2011.
I know a lot of people adore her and haven't been able to see any of her presentations/classes so this might be interesting for some of you :)
She was so incredibly sweet and gave me a brush roll....and a hug! (which I liked even more)

Anyway, here is the video! Enjoy :)
