faq | what are your beauty essentials?

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

Hey guys! I feel like I dropped off the face of the earth! Which of course means Facebook and Twitter - DUH! LOL The new job is amazing and busy busy. Plus, I was able to still do some 'side work' that had been contracted long long ago. I am the publisher of SKORCH Magazine as well as the graphic designer, so I've been helping other indy digital publishers design THEIR magazine, and it just so happens I picked up another plus size oriented magazine - one I think you'll love. It's Belle Noir, they just launched their debut issue, and I did all the graphic design (besides the last two pages and ads). I am SOO proud and hope you check it out!  http://www.belle-noir.com/

Next, I love getting questions on my facebook fanpage at www.facebook.com/fatshionchic and will start dedicating faq blogs to answer. One I get a LOT is - what are your beauty essentials?

I love makeup!! Like big puffy heart LOVVEEE makeup. It is as much a part of my look as the shoes and skinny jeans, and every girl needs to know how to use it, apply it and love it. One of my favorite places to study is drag makeup. It's definitely exaggerated, but that's exactly what is so great about it. You can see easily what areas are great for highlighting and lowlighting. After that, it's all about the right tools and product.
I do spend a fortune for my "kit", but for the $, it lasts me forever. When you buy quality makeup, you don't have to use so much, therefore it lasts forever.

Here are some of my essential beauty supplies.....
