Ashley

Miss Ashley is always a blast to be around. She was getting some photos taken and requested more of a glam look. salt_lake_city_makeup_artistComplexion: It Cosmetics CC Cream in Medium(shade guide here)Tarte Creaseless Concealer in Medium,  Maskcara contour in Stone,  Tarte Blush in Fearless,  You can’t really tell in this photo but I also used Benefit Sun Beam on the high points of her cheekbones.

Eyes: Urban Decay shadow primer, MAC eyeshadows in Bamboo, Woodwinked (shimmer), Embark and Carbon. Guerlain ‘Cils d’Enfer’ mascara, Chanel liquid eyeliner, Lancome le Stylo in Cafe on inner rim, House of Lashes in Siren and House of Lashes adhesive.  Cleaned up her brows with my favorite tweezers.

Lips: Urban Decay lip liner in Streak, Lipstick Queen Cool Gin (I’ve been wearing this lipstick like everyday, love the color and texture. They describe it as a pink nude. I’d describe it as a rosy coral, medium brightness.)  And a little bit of Tom Ford Luca lipstick in the center to highlight. (shade guide here)

Jessa in Red

This shoot was for Valentine’s Day so it’s a bit late but it would have been a huge shame to not post at least a couple on my blog!sexy_hair_messy_curlsvintage_waves_vintage_curls_hair

Sorry for the short post! xoxo <3

Get your hairstyle to last

My friend Ashlee is a hairstylist and I saw her using this pretty white curling iron that I had been eyeing online for a while, but hadn’t made the jump to purchase it yet.

So I asked her about it and she raved that her curls last for like 3 days when she uses it. I was sold.

vivianmakeupartist_t3_whirl_styling_wandIf you’re wondering what kind of looks you’d get from these different sized attachments, here are some examples. In this photo above I’m using the tapered barrel. (Top is Topshop and is so comfy and now on sale!)

*Note. I didn’t take the hair all the way down to the end of the wand. It still gave me tighter curls, but not too tight on the bottom. beach_waves_t3_vivianmakeupartist(makeup details in previous post.)

In the photos below, my guess is they probably used a 1 1/2 ” barrel, so the biggest one in the set.

And in these photos, a 1″.

(I tried to find the original source for these photos to credit, but I couldn’t track it down. I found them all on Pinterest.)

And when it comes to shampoo and conditioner lately I’ve been loving Living Proof.

Basically I can go longer without having to wash my hair, which is supposed to be better for your hair plus you save time.

If you like to try out products before buying the full sizes, or if you travel, I also purchased this set and loved it.

Living Proof was recommended by my friend Cara. She mentioned the No Frizz which I love as well.  To be honest I can’t tell the difference and they’re both great.

Curls that last and not having to wash your hair as often. I’m in! And I also got an awesome shower cap 🙂 It’s real glamorous.shower cap

Valentines Makeup

Which style of makeup is your favorite? I can never decide. More glamorous and darker, or more beachy with softer, girlier makeup.

Since Valentine’s day is on a Sunday this year I will probably just be going to church…which if I think about it long enough, is actually kind of wonderful and romantic since Jeff (the hubs) will be there with me.

One of my favorite quotes of all time, seems to kind of fit into the Valentines Day theme…

“Only one life that soon will pass, only what’s done with love will last.” I think about that often when I’m stressed or feeling like what I do is inconsequential. I truly love my clients and love making them feel beautiful, so I hope it does manifest into something more than just me painting peoples faces!

Here are two Valentines Day makeup ideas!
