Nivea Men’s Shave Balm as a Primer? Yay or Nay?

So a few months ago, Nikki Tutorials started a trend by using the Nivea Men’s Post Shave Balm as a makeup primer. YouTubers, MUAs and makeup fanatics have tried and gushed over this amazing $6 product, that’s proved to be better than some top makeup primers ranging at $30+. But, is this shave balm for everyone?

You’ll Love These Lippies

Although it may be more timely to make a post about the AMA’s, one word: J. LO, or Thanksgiving makeup: your fav. lip balm and bold falsies, I couldn’t resist posting about Birchbox’s first makeup brand! (more…)

We all watched Desi and Lustrelux’s Snapchats as they ventured to New York to attend the 2015 Gen Beauty event. Swooning over makeup and meet-and-greets, while we worked or sat home. It hurt even more when their beautifully edited trip recaps were posted to Youtube.

And now it’s our turn, Los Angelenos.

Gen Beauty is returning to LA on January 30th and 31st! What a way to start the new year. The earliest of the early bird tickets ($59) sold out in a flash, but the second set of early tickets ($89) are on sale now and available while supplies last until November 15th. After that the ticket price goes up to $159, yikes!

The event will feature a $200 swag bag, great networking, meet & greets and pop-up shops. Vendors are not listed yet, but past vendors include NYX, Lush, Ardell, China Glaze, Cargo Cosmetics, It Cosmetics, Smashbox and Too Faced, to name a few.

Confirmed Ipsy Stylists include: Desi Perkins, Lustrelux, Chrisspy, Michelle Phan, and Christen Dominique.

Michelle Phan has believed in makeup since the first time she was allowed to try eyeliner. When she looked in the mirror and saw a transformed version of herself looking back, she fell in love with the sense of confidence that makeup could give her. Ever since she posted her first makeup tutorial on YouTube, she has dedicated herself to inspire millions by using makeup as a tool for transformation and self expression. Now, Michelle has compiled all of her best wisdom into Make Up: Your Life Guide to Beauty, Style, and Success–Online and Off. From creating a gorgeous smoky eye to understanding contouring to developing an online persona, Michelle has advice to help you transform every facet of your life. Make Up is packed with Michelle’s trademark beauty and style tutorials, stories and pictures from her own life, and advice on the topics she is asked about most, including etiquette, career, entrepreneurship, and creativity. From the everyday (how to get glowing skin) to the big picture (how to turn your passion into a profession), Make Up is a practical and empowering resource to help anyone put their best face forward.
