I came across MUA Desi Perkins’ snapchat the other day and her gorgeous self shared her “lazy girl makeup” tutorial. Thus, this blog post on quick tricks, ‘lazy’ makeup and speedy mornings came to mind– I’ll love to share mine with you and hear yours, as well!
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?
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.
Will you be attending the event?! Maybe, I’ll see you there 😉
Until next week, XO- Ashley
