I have stopped buying makeup brushes for the time being because I figured with every money I spend on some set that has that new specially designed brush, I could be saving the $$$ on a set that actually retains its quality and integrity.  I am talking about synthetic brushes!

If you thought Anastasia was just all about neutral eyeshadows and brows, well think again.  Not only is Anastasia a brow and cosmetic guru, she is now a hair guru!  Lauching exclusively at ULTA stores on Dec. 26th, 2012 (perfect timing for the New Year's Eve soirĂ©es) and sold there exclusively for the first few months are the fun and funky Hypercolor Hair Powders!

I get weird cravings for makeup.  During the spring/summer months I want bright shimmery/metallic colors.  I guess I just want to look as pretty as the hummingbirds flying around.  During the fall winter, I crave for neutrals and I craved for a taupe.  I decided upon Illamasqua Heroine (£15.50 - $20USD), a nice neutral taupe.

Recently, Make Up For Ever revamped one of my holy grail products, the eyebrow gel in the squeeze tube by adding the name Aqua Brow to go with the already expanding product line of "Aqua" products.  With the Sephora VIB gift card and the fact I was running low on this product after several years, I decided to buy the renamed version.

Makeup artistry is a trade that fascinates me especially the SFX or special effects area.  Becoming one of those artist not only takes great talent; it also takes patience and major attention to detail.  Those alone can make a great artist but to be admired by one's own peers is an accomplishment well beyond the usual bits of artistry and latex. The admiration usually results from the harmonious effect of the artist, actor, character, and makeup.  This is the zen moment in SFX artistry and an artist who has this gift is Kazuhiro Tsuji.

I know many of you are taupe addicts.  I am one also.  The taupes I am addicted to are the matte or satin matte textures.  I am always looking for that taupe that can work on my mature skin without making me look washed out and dead.
