I just got some tear sheets from Uni Magazine out of Dubai. We shot this in Palmdale CA at the Poppy Fields on a beautiful and VERY cold Spring day in March. My beauty look was based on vibrant lip shades. I used all MAC Cosmetics lipsticks in shades: Candy Yum Yum, Pink Plaid, Saint Germaine and Girl About Town. www.maccosmetics.comPhoto Credit: Raquel Olivo Hair: Lucie Doughty Makeup: Anthony Merante Styling: Arturo D Chavez
For the debut issue of Treats! Magazine I did an editorial with actress Rachel Roberts. We shot on location in the Hollywood Hills at a fabulous home and it was shot by photographer Deborah Anderson. The images are stunning and can be seen in Treats! Magazine on News Stands NOW! You can also subscribe digitally at www.zinio.com
Last February I was at The Makeup Show in Los Angeles and I came across a genius product. It was the Glamcor lighting system!
I had recently glammed an actress for a red carpet event and we were in a hotel room with very little lighting. I was practically doing makeup by candlelight. I had looked into buying a lighting kit and found that everything offered was either too big or too expensive. It was perfect timing when I saw the Glamcor Lighting system at The Makeup Show.
The Glamcor lighting system is lightweight, portable and specifically designed for makeup application. The LED bulbs do not get hot and can be packed away immediately after use. The bulbs are also color balanced and perfect for makeup application. The lighting kit also comes with an attractive carrying case for easy storage.
If you are in New York this weekend, then hit up the Make Up Show and pick up a lighting kit! Glamcor also offers many other great products like makeup brushes, bags and mobile studios.
Make Up For Ever has come out with another outstanding product!
LAB SHINE LIP GLOSS
This amazing lip gloss comes in 35 shades in total and 3 unique collections like: Diamond, Star and Metal. My personal faves are from the Star and Diamond collections. The Star collection comes in 14 different shades with a pearly glaze and offers a medium coverage. The Diamond collection comes in 12 different shades and offers natural looking sheer color with sparkle.These lipglosses are great layered over your favorite lipstick. But for PURE DRAMA I like to layer them over the Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick from Make Up For Ever!
For a luscious high impact vibrant pink lip that will be on trend for Spring 2011. First apply Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in #36 (Satin Fuchsia) all over lips and then layer the Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lipgloss in shade S26.

I have not done a product of the week in a while now so I thought I would review a few great lip glosses!
MAC Cosmetics has recently launched a lipglass and lipstick called “GAGA 2” The shade is sort of a brownish, peachy beige. Not exactly an easy color for everyone to wear, but I really like this lip glass paired with a pink lip liner like Dervish, also from MAC Cosmetics.
Every cent of the selling price of MAC VIVA GLAM lipstick and lipglass is donated to the MAC AIDS fund. For more information visit www.macaidsfund.org
The MAC AIDS fund has raised over 200 Million since it was established in 1994.
