Stay Makeup,Stay!!

The best trick for getting makeup to stay on your face is primers!! People don't give them enough credit but I'm telling you right now they work!! There are primers for your eyes and face. I like M.A.C's face primer and for the eye I like Mally eye primer. Another trick for your eyes is taking your foundation and go over your whole eyelid with it. Then apply loose or pressed powder over it. It really holds the makeup in place and evens out the skintone on your eye.

soft smokey eye

One trick to softening a smokey eye is by using a warm brown color in the crease of the eye.
After applying the black shadow to the eyelid keep the eye open. Just above the eyeball, sweep a warm brown
shadow using a pointed crease brush. Then apply a bone or cream color to brow bone and blend.
Beautiful,soft, smokey eyes.
To achieve this look try Mally City Chic Smokey Eye Kit. It makes it so easy!

These are a few of our favorite things.

Recently, did an interview with me and what products I use on Camille Grammer on a regular basis. I'd like to share it with you!

Makeup Artist Dedra Whitt Shares Camille’s Beauty Secrets!

Dedra Whitt is Camille Grammer’s best friend and makeup artist, so she knows the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star so well! Dedra tells us all about working with Camille, and how they get her looking so beautiful for the Bravo cameras!

Eye Shadow: “I like shimmery shadows because they are light and pretty. They can really pop the eye if you use them appropriately– not all over, just in certain areas.” Dedra loves to use I Nuovi’s Metallogy: “They are almost three-dimensional.” Dedra also loves the lipsticks from this line: “They have flecks of gold so they kind of change color.”

Skincare Products: Camille’s favorite line is the exclusive Epicuren, which is “an amazing, amazing skincare line that really rejuvenates the skin.” (This line is available at spas and authorized retailers.)

Tanning Products: Though Camille’s glow is mostly natural from tanning outside, Dedra uses Sally Hansen tanning spray to enhance her color: “It actually works! We use it on her body.” (Sounds like Camille knows a beauty bargain when she finds one!) For Camille’s face, Dedra skips the tanning products and instead uses foundation in a slightly darker shade. Such a great tip!

Blending: “We always use the Beauty Blender to blend her foundation flawlessly!”

Dedra says that she always does Camille’s makeup for the show. “We joke about it. If your best friend is a makeup artist and you don’t know how to do your own makeup, then you ask her to do your makeup every day!” Dedra even traveled to NYC with the housewives for a press tour. Sounds like Dedra and Camille have a truly beautiful friendship!

My new favorite mascara

I have been using the same mascara for years now and I never thought I would ever find something I like as much. Voluminous by L'Oreal. Inexpensive but really good. Well now folks I have to say I have found my new friend. Without even looking!
Mascara by Mally. It works so well. I have been using it nonstop since I got it last week in a gift bag(thank you Oscars!)
Thick, full lashes with no flaking or clumping.
This is the real deal folks!!
