Feeling Creative?!?

Hello everyone!

I am looking for some unique and creative help 🙂  If you are already following this blog, then you know I have been a self-employed makeup artist for over half of my life!  Therefore I never had to worry about a “name” other than Julie.  Starting brand new in 2013 will be my “Bridal Agency” and that is who needs to be named ASAP! Let me give you a quick overview of what all will be happening and what services will be offered So you can hopefully help me name my baby 😉

First off I will be hiring quite a few more professionals to add to makeup that I have already established with just me.  Keeping in mind that my services have always (and will continue to be) completely mobile to pamper my brides wherever their location may be.  This is what will be available to Brides and Wedding party- makeup, hair, nails/pedicure, airbrush tanning, facials, massage, lash extensions, etc.  Also…. I am going to have a photographer on staff and available for Bridal Boudoir sessions if brides are interested and/or not offered with their photog.  He will be available basically for anything anyone would need him for!

Now that you have a pretty good idea of what I am putting together…help me name my baby 😉 haha! I have hit a creative wall and I need a very unique/ to the point/ pretty bridal kind of name.  I just wanted to throw it out there in case you find yourself daydreaming and think of a catchy name!

Gel Cheek Stains – Tarte Cosmetics

These Cheek Stains from Tarte are amazing! They are also alcohol and oil free so they will not dry out your complexion OR clog pores.  The super easy to use gel can be applied right from the tube, dab with a sponge or brush and/or mix with your favorite highlighter and blend with your fingertips!  Great summer or “makeup rookie” product to brighten up your face- top it off with some lip gloss and you have a very healthy “glow” and polished look in less than 10 minutes 🙂

[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!

“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 🙂

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!
