If you haven't tried Il Makiage and I don't know why you haven't, here is your chance to get them at a reduced price on Beauty Story.
Il Makiage is a line by Ilana Harkavi and has been around for decades. Her products have been used by practically every famous makeup artist then and now. I find the line very underrated, especially for such a pro line. No fancy packaging, no pretty celeb but they have been applied on many pretty celebrity faces. What are you waiting for? Try the line before the sale is over at *Beauty Story.
* Not affiliated in any way, shape, or form. Just watching out for bargains! :-)

Joe Blasco, Three Custom Colors, Cinema Secrets, Fyrinnae, and more-What Everyone Should Try From Them
My blog will be a year old on June 28th! It has survived a year! Wow! I wondered how many people actually read what I write? I also wondered how many people I have bored. Yeah, I don't have all the latest brands I know. (I mention this so many times too.) Remember, I BUY most of my stuff which leaves me to budget. I don't want to waste my money on cosmetics just because it looks pretty in the package (although I do get that itch to just splurge on something pretty once in a while) or because some celebrity got the stuff in their swag bag. I buy because it has to suit my needs at the moment and gives me some experimental options like the following items I have listed.

Sanitary brushes and clean brushes are very important for the regular makeup consumer and more important for the makeup artist. Germs can easily be spread by using the same dirty brush on several clients, or what almost made me throw up in my mouth-using the mascara applicator straight from the container on several clients (models). "Don't worry," she said, "I throw it away after three months." EWWWWW! (Disposable mascara wands are sold for a reason.)

I have been using Make Up For Ever Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector on and off for the past couple of years. I usually wear this during the spring to summer months because of its ability to be sweatproof and waterproof.

Fresh & Easy-Retreat Mulberry & Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Hand and Nail Cream; Lemon Verbena & Sunflower Hydrating Body Oil
Fresh & Easy is a chain of grocery stores that packs ready made and brand name groceries in a no-nonsense setting. You won't find fancy-shmancy decor in this place because it concentrates on getting you in and out with the best quality food at a reasonable and sometimes very low price. UK's Tesco is the brain behind this grocery chain and with the help of Whole Foods has expanded mostly in the US west coast.

Finally, I have posted a new post on my Into the Palette blog-The Red Velvet Smoky Eye Look. I apologize for not having many posts for that blog since my rhythm with photo editing has been off, but it is finally getting its groove.
