I am always doing makeup for all kinds of things like editorial spreads, catalogs and commercials. This month I got a chance to do makeup for the FMI event in Florida.

I did various makeovers on the attendees but the highlight of the event was my time working with Tim Gunn of "Project Runway". "Project Runway" is a TV show that takes some of the best up-in-coming fashion designers and gives them a chance to win their 'dream come true', to show their collections down the runways of New York Fashion Week and to have the start up money and press needed to create their own lable. As a makeup artist, fashion and beauty go hand in hand, so I was estatic to be able to work with the guy that helps mold the new fashion designers into the next fashion gurus of the future.



Beauty Questions

Beauty question: "I have hazel eyes and find it difficult to find eyeshadows that look good with my eye color. Anytime I apply eyeshadow, I immediately rub it off because I feel like I look better naturally. Any suggestions for a good color for hazel eyes?"- from Ashley in Ohio.

Answer: Covergirl Exact Eyeshadow takes all of the guess work out of chosing the colors because they do it for you in one set.




MY FAVORITE THINGS
My favorite thing this month is Black Opal's Fade and Conceal concealer.

I like how it totally hides my dark under eye circles with the correct undertone since I get hyperpigmentation from rubbing my eyes too much from allergies and lack of sleep.

It also corrects the discoloration by fading it to my regular skin tone. So it hides my flaws until it is finished correcting them. LOVE THAT!...RIGHT!
