[R]evolution BX-145 LASH FAN

I can’t even explain how excited all of us professional MUA’s are about this new Revolution brand of brushes! They are designed by an incredibly talented, Emmy Award winning Makeup Artist (not to mention just a great all around guy!) Kevin James Bennett.  I will be reviewing more brushes from this line, but I wanted to share my favorite now.  I LOVE using fan brushes to apply mascara and now there is finally one actually designed to do just that!! It’s notched so that it coats even better and leaves lashes looking amazing.  KJ Has designed a full line of makeup brushes within the Royal and Langnickle family.  I am proud to say that I am an affiliate of theirs and if anyone ever wants to try them out, you can shop the whole [R]evolution line at a discount through my website www.JulieJabiro.com  I highly recommend ANY of these brushes for whatever level of artistry you’re at- they will last you a lifetime AND their price point is another thing you will love about them!

Happy Shopping 🙂

Benefit’s High Brow

This little gem, also known as a “Fake It” in the Benefit world is pretty much an instant eyelift!  The soft, matte linen-pink pencil looks beautiful on all skin tones while lifting and enhancing the entire eye area.  Can be worn alone or as the finishing touch of a fully made up eye!

Giveaway when we get 100 makeup junkies!

So now that I have the blog up and running AND the makeup/tanning FaceBook pages merged into one, I feel like I should celebrate 😉 haha! Really that just means that I want to give YOU something!!

I obviously write and keep up with all of this information for YOU the readers. I love to help and teach women how to do what they can to feel good about themselves.  That being said- I’d love for everyone to know about this blog so they have the opportunity to read and learn these things!  So once this blog and my business FaceBook page have 100 followers on each page- I will pick a winner from each one 🙂  Now it’s nothing major- just a little thank you from me!  I’m thinking of giving an eyeshadow from the cosmetic line I used to own (J.

“Set The Stage” Face Primer

Set The Stage Makeup Primer fills, smooths and re-texturizes the skin in preparation for applying foundation. This unscented, ultra light-weight (but professional-strength) face primer goes on silky smooth before transforming into a light, matte micro-powder that provides exceptional binding properties beneath a wide-range of foundations, including cremes, powders and high-definition foundations.

Above is the official type for this product but let ME tell ya how much I love it!! First of all, Whip Hand Cosmetiques was created by one of my favorite makeup artist friends right here in Michigan 🙂  She gave me a sample to test out on my clients and see how I like it….well- I LOVE it!  A lot of women like the SmashBox Photo Finish primers but let me tell ya- This one blows them out of the water!  It only comes in clear (at least that I know of, or for now) but that’s really all you should need.  You really do only need a small amount of product to cover the entire face.  Every client (including myself) has fallen in love with this product and how velvety smooth it leaves the skin prepped for foundation.  If you are in the market for a new face primer- Whip Hand is definitely on my list of “Must Try Brands” plus you’re helping out the local small businesses 🙂

Angled Brush

This little angled brush may not look like much, but it is one of the “Must Have Brushes” for any level of makeup!  The image here is a MAC natural/synthetic fibre blend, which is great because you can use it with powders, liquid and creams.  Just about every cosmetic line has some type of angled brush (normally made with just synthetic fibre) but I am actually a big fan of the MAC brush.  What do you do with this little gem you ask??? Well- pretty much any and everything!  The natural hair brushes are amazing for filling in sparse eyebrows- because of it’s angled design and size you can make almost hair-like strokes with your powder to achieve perfect brows every time!  I also love using these for eyeliner 🙂 They work fantastic for the popular gel liners, OR if you like very soft liner- most eyeshadows can be used wet or dry.  Simply wet the brush and swipe your favorite eyeshadow and use it as liner (or try it dry for a very subtle look).  One of my favorite things to with this brush is to line the lower lashline with a darker color- it gives a more finished and polished look without having to use an actualy pencil/liquid liner that can be pretty harsh.

Like I said….LOTS to do with this amazing little tool 🙂 So go pick one up this week and start playing!

Hoola Bronzer – Benefit

Ohhh Hoola Bronzer… this has been my BFF for years! This super soft and silky powder is like Barbados in a Box!  This is by far my favorite bronzer and one of the only ones on the market with absolutely NO shimmer, glitter or orange to make ya look crazy 😉  It’s also great for contouring a wide range of skin tones- use an angled blush brush and blend into hairline, pop some of Hoola’s pretty mauve sister (same cute box, named “Dallas”) on the cheekbones and you’re ready to go!

**Just a quick note about Benefit Cosmetics…They have some amazing colors that all come in those cute “Box-O-Powders” with a small brush.  Dallas is actually one of my top 5 cheek colors, and it CAN take the place of your bronzer if you need it too.  If you want to brighten up your face or have a sallow look try their Dandelion all over face powder (pale pink, can also be concentrated on cheeks for a flushed look).  If you aren’t a pink kind of gal, try using the box called Georgia Peach to totally warm up for face and give some color!

Don’t be afraid to try new colors and/or techniques 🙂 These powders are (generally the same everywhere) $28 and last about a year!

 

The Essential Palette by Cargo

This palette is from Cargo and it’s called The Essential Palette in Warm Neutral. I LOVE this! it’s perfect for the girl who doesn’t think she knows how to do makeup! This is one of my “Go To Palettes” for just about every wedding! Cargo also makes this fool-proof palette in other neautral shades if this ones is too light/dark for your skin. Watch out because the “crease” color I think is a bit too red. just a personal opinion!  Cargo is sold in Sephora and Ulta now I believe, and of course online 🙂
