I'm Baaaaaack!

Hi Everyone!

Sorry, I've been M.I.A. for a while, but I'm back, and with some good news!

In November, Prostyle Makeup had our first Makeup classes for beginners, and everything went Great!

The class was small and intimate, and the feedback was positive! The next classes will be held in January, and this time, we're adding "Intermediate" classes as well!

For more information about classes, click Here and go to the "Classes" tab. Classes are partner-based, fun and hands-on! I look forward to seeing you there!

Other News: I will soon be adding tutorials! In an effort to do something that no one else is, my first series will be about quick makeup! Stay tuned, because it's coming soon!

Also, I've created a fan page on Facebook. To become a fan, click HERE! This page will contain the most up-to-date info!

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall....when you need a new look, who will you call?

I know that fashion repeats itself, but it seems that the trends are cycling too quickly. Hollywood glam is one of the looks for Fall, and here I am, trying to find the perfect red lipstick......again. It almost seems that the industry is lacking in the creativity department. I'm ready for something dramatic!



So, this year, I'm setting my own new trend. It's called, "Made you look!". The idea is to get an inspiration, and run with it. Be yourself, be fun and above all, be bold. Now, I'm not going to parade around town looking like a peacock, but I want people to take notice.



I'm ditching the traditional black and gray smokey eye, and I'm throwing in purple, copper, green, and any other lovely deep color I have in my kit. Maybe I'll add a swirl at the end of my eyeliner. :) Who's going to tell me I can't?



I want to know what you think of this idea of individuality. Post a comment, or a link to a photo. I'll be posting some ideas later, but first, I want to hear from you!

How to Score the Best Prices on Cosmetics

The recession feels like it's still in full swing, but that's no reason to look un-fabulous! Here are a few money-saving tips that will keep you looking great, without making your wallet look ugly.





TIP 1) Revisit the drugstore! So many brands have upgraded their formulas. Here are a few I've recently tried:


Foundation: Mabelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation. It is good for normal to dry skin, and comes in a large variety of colors. It retails for a little over $8 on drugstore.com, and right now they have a BOGO (Buy One, Get One 1/2 off-any Mabelline product) sale!




Foundation: L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup. I love this one in the summer months, or for someone with year-round oily skin. It also works well on a normal to dry skintype, but sometimes it's best to apply a little extra moisturizer. It retails for $10.95 at drugstore.com, and it's also part of their BOGO sale!




** MUA tip: Apply these foundations with a kabuki brush for an airbrushed application. I love this one from the Too Faced Teddybear Hair Collection:




TIP 2) Shop the soon-to-be discontinued, and sale sections of your favorite high-end brands. Many brands will sell products that they will no longer carry for up to 75% off on their sites. Visit these brand sites to view what's on sale.

Stila
Bare Escentuals
LORAC
Smashbox
Tarte
Benefit
Sephora variety sale

If your favorite brand isn't here, go directly to their site and look for sales and discontinued items.

TIP 3) Join a site that allows you to sell or swap items with other makeup fanatics. Sites like Makeupgeek.com or Makeupalley.com. Just be careful. Be sure to clean products carefully after receiving them. Also, check the seller/swapper rating before completing any transaction, and follow site guidelines.
