March Central Florida Beauty Bloggers Meetup at Cafe Tutu Tango

Yesterday Judi, Dave and I went to the Central Florida Beauty Blogger’s Meetup at Cafe Tutu Tango in Orlando. It was organized by the lovely Brittany of Clumps of Mascara. It was awesome to see women of all shapes, size and color, all brought together by our mutual love of beauty. Everyone was so kind and supportive. The whole experience was very uplifting. If you have never been to Cafe Tutu Tango, it is an awesome tapas restaurant filled with gorgeous art. Usually there is an artist working at an artist table while you’re there. Sometimes they have shows, like people dancing. The food was great! I highly recommend the alforno roasted pears. Our servers were fantastic and handled our party of 21 gracefully. Some of us ladies at the end. I WISH I had gotten a full group shot of us all together. […]

Darling’s Afterparty

I played with blues and teals today, favorites from Sugarpill, Fyrinnae and Evil Shades. I also tried a different technique with my eyebrows, thanks to Ana suggesting that I try something that Petrilude did in a video. I used Urban Decay’s 24/7 liner in Zero lightly to define my brows and then used an angled eye shadow brush to sort of soften the edges. I actually think the black looks pretty natural. […]

Mineral Makeup 101 Basics Video Tutorial

This is just a little video tutorial on some Mineral Makeup 101 – How to apply mineral eye shadow with the dab/pat methods. There are many other methods, including foiling, using Pixie Epoxy (my personal favorite), or other mixing mediums as well as using bases like Paint Pots or Shade Sticks. I showcase ecoTools brushes because I own about 40 of them, they’re easily accessible to most people, and I think they’re really good quality. You can buy several good sets from Amazon.com: Alicia Silverstone set 6 Piece Eye Brush set And you can also find them at Target, Walgreens, Walmart and other stores. […]
