THE MAKEUP SHOW DALLAS WHAT'S NEW NEWS



Saturday, September 23, 5:00-7:00

This year The Makeup Show Dallas is taking it to new heights and bringing all the stocks! So we're calling all industry professionals, Makeup Artists, Estheticians, Photographers, Hairstylists, Beauty Influencers to celebrate the 2017 show happening in Dallas!
This industry has grown tremendously over 10 year span, I mean I remember when I first started in the industry things were totally different. Technology wasn't as advanced as it is today. The access to information was there but it's way more access now then it's ever been. We have a diverse community of artists with different voices, visions and experiences so this is the best time to discuss the change in the industry! This year The Makeup Show is bringing something new to Dallas called the Town Hall hosted by James Vincent who is the Director of Education  & Artist Relations at The Makeup Show. He is joined by a panel of artists and experts, where they discuss the change, current topics, debate timely issues, present ideas, and voice opinions, ask questions and have an opportunity to engage with executives and artists and explore some of the hot topics in today's makeup industry. So yes, this is a social event to discuss the things that are important to us as an artist! 
I encourage you to come out, grab a cocktail if you like and meet us at the Town Hall. 
Also what I love about The Makeup Show is that they care about the industry because we are a community! There has been a lot of events going on with Hurricane Harvey and it has really done some damage here in Texas. Many artist lost everything including they're makeup kits which for many is their livelihood because they do it full time. The Makeup Show will be accepting donations and selling Raffle tickets for large prizes of makeup and tools.
100% of the proceeds will be split with half going to the The Family Place, a local Dallas organization that helps to end domestic violence and the other half to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to help those affected by this terrible storm in the greater Houston area. So if you have any donations or you would like to help in anyway buying a Raffle Ticket is a great way to help your community. 
The Grand Prizes will consist of products generously donated by: Crown Brush, MAC Cosmetics, Senna Cosmetics, Temptu Pro, NYX Professional Makeup, Terry Tomlinson, Breakups to Makeup, Danessa Myricks Beauty, bdellium tools, MustaeV, MUSE Beauty Pro, Bioderma, Smith Cosmetics, Graftobian, MAKE UP FOR EVER, Qosmedix, Beauty So Clean, T3 Micro, Cinema Secrets, Alcone Co. and many more!

Got Stains? I Got Something That's Totally Awesome!

This is my first post since Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. It's a lot going on and we're still battling from that storm and have a long recovery ahead of us. But I wanted to bring you something that will make your recovery process easier. 


This concentrated cleaner is perfect for the Hurricane Harvey Clean Up! This all purpose concentrated cleaner pretty much clean any & everything and removes stains with little effort. Remember because it's a concentrate you definitely want to dilute it especially in water conditions. 


  • Grease
  • Wall Stains
  • Blood Stains 
  • Wine
  • Liquor
  • Gum
  • Oil
  • Coffee
  • Pet Stains
  • Inks
  • Fresh Paint
  • Varnish
  • Hair Dye
  • Makeup Stains
  • Ovens
  • Carpet

  • And More...


When I first encountered this product it was when I was helping move my sister & bro-in-law into their new home and let me tell you that home was so grimy. My bro-in-law pulled this bottle out and I was wondering what it was. And he told me where he got it from. This product removed so much dirt & grime and made everything look almost brand new. As brand new as it can get because it is an older house that has been abused from previous owners. Here is a before & after of the window seal that I cleaned at their new home. 



And now all it needed was a good painting which I did also.

So this is perfect for Homes, Businesses and and Automobiles. 

I recently had a chance to detail my own car because it got some direct water damage from Hurricane Harvey. And not realizing as I was driving home from work that Saturday in flood waters that water got inside the car with me. I didn't realize it until 4 days later when I was going to go volunteer at NRG Center and I was smelling something more like old sitting water. And that's when I found out that in my back seat water got inside the car. So I had to do some major detailing. All I used was Totally Awesome & some Lysol Wipes. 



I want to show you a snippet of me using this product on the ceiling of my car to remove makeup and oil stains. Just so you can see with your own eyes how it works.

So go ahead and ditch all of your millions of cleaning supplies and get you some LA's Totally Awesome All Purpose Concentrated Cleaner. It's inside Dollar Tree and retails for only $1.00. We can all afford $1.

The Perfect Infused Lemonade







The warm weather is still here and at least in Houston it will probalbly be here for the remainder of this year. This past winter it was hot in Houston so I wouldn't be surprise if its the same this year. But anyway one of the most refreshing ways to quench your thirst and curb your sweet tooth is through  a nice glass  of lemonade. Well this is a play on your ordinary lemonade. And I'll be sharing how I made this delicious Infused Lemonade. 

This lemonade was inspired by Pinterest. What made me want to experiment with this was the fact that I was planning a romantic picnic  and I figured this Mint infused strawberry lemonade would be perfect,  And it was. I was a bit scared of the mint because I know it has a inquiring taste and too much of it can mess up something good. One thing you must know with mint is that a little goes a long way. Mint is almost like salt to me because of don't need a lot of it for it to do it's job. You always know salt when you taste it and mint is the same. Mint should only be there to bring out the flavors


In the Pinterest Inspiration it look like they made homemade lemonade and they added lemon slices. Which I didn't do. I wanted something quick and easy. And literally this can be done n 5-8 minutes. 10 minutes would definitely be pushing it. 



INGREDIENTS
MASON JAR
SIMPLY LEMONADE
1-2 STRAWBERRY (PER JAR)
1 MINT LEAF


- Mason Jars are quite affordable and can be found in places like Dollar Tree, 99Cent Only Store, or Family Dollar. I got mines from the 99 Cent Only Store for only $1/ea. 
- Your lemonade can be made from scratch or you can do the quick approach and buy your fresh lemonade. I chose Simply Lemonade because it's my ultimate fave and it is still All Natural! 
- Depending on how large your strawberries may be you only need 1-2 strawberries but you are welcome to add as many to your lemonade you desire. I got my strawberries from Krogers.
- Fresh Mint can be found anywhere. Remember a little goes a long way. I also got my mint from Krogers. 


Overall this drink is very refreshing it's great for parties, picnics, networking events and more. Let me know your thoughts on this Infused lemonade!
