Acid IDivine From Sleek Makeup - Overview + Tutorial

I've heard so many good things about this brand and this palette in particular that I just couldn't think about NOT trying to get it while I was in London, UK for one day.
It has these very special bright neon colors (the 4 in the middle), some great shimmery ones and several matte eyeshadows (the purple, the black and the white). The black is not a very dark intense black so be prepared for that. It is more of a graphite-ash black, and the white is a very sheer white..
Here are the swatches and pictures of it. Be sure to watch my full review and tutorial in the video below (I did the brightest look I could get out of this palette but I'll be sure to do some different ones in the future..)

P.S - Sorry about the lack of my Nov. Faves video this month.. Have been very busy as you know.. But because I had the idea of making a year faves video I will be sure to include my (very little) November and December faves too in it! :)

This is one of the things you really really want for a very long time but you never think you'll actually get it. It just sits there on the shelve in the store and always looks at you in a "Please buy me" look..

NEW Sigma Beauty Products - Sneak Peek!

I was super exited when I've heard that Sigma Beauty is going to launch lots of new products to the end of 2011. I was even MORE exited when I saw what those products are going to be! And I can't wait to share them with you, my lovely readers <3  :)

Sigma is going to launch FIVE NEW products in November and December. In this post I'm going to share the product release dates and a brief description of the new products. 

The Cities Collection.
Launch Date: November 21, 2011

 The Cities is Sigma Beauty’s special edition travel kit collection! The kits feature seven travel-sized brushes from their best selling Essential and Premium Kits (E05 Eyeliner, E35 Tapered Blending, E45 Small Tapered Blending, E60 Large Shader, F05 Small Contour, F15 Duo Fibre, and F30 Large Powder). The brushes are held in a travel-size container that turns into two brush holders to keep your brushes organized, even on the go. Each kit was designed to represent the beauty and excitement of the city it is named after. There are four kits in this exciting collection: London (brown), Tokyo (pink), Paris (red) and New York (black). No need to say that the packaging is SO cute!!!!

Make Me Up Collection - Travel Edition. 
Launch Date: November 28, 2011

The Sigma Beauty Make Me Up Travel Kits were designed for fun, yet practical makeup application on the go. Similar to the design of the full sized Make Me Up Collection, these travel sized kits contain seven colorful brushes held in a functional and stylish container (E30 Pencil, E40 Tapered Blending, E55 Eye Shading, E65 Small Angle, F30 Large Powder, F40 Large angled Contour, and F60 Foundation). The kits will be available in Black, Aqua, Coral and Purple. So if you like the design of the Makeup Me Up collection, but you don't feel like you need ALL the brushes for traveling, or you want it smaller and convenient, that one will be perfect!  

The Bunny Collection. (And MY favorite! :D)
Launch Date: December 5, 2011

The Bunny Collection is Sigma Beauty’s vegan friendly line of brushes. The collection will feature a full-size and travel-size kit. The full size kit will contain the twelve brushes sold in their Essential Kit, all made with the Sigmax HD fibers. The travel-size kit contains seven best selling brushes from the Essential kit. Both kits will be held in a Sigma Beauty container that turns into two brush holders. Don't you just LOVE the blue and pink combination? :D And the fact that they come in a travel size too is just awesome! I also love that they are vegan! Sigma's synthetic fibers are so soft!

My Makeup Artist Portfolio!!!

So as you probably already know (if you're following me on twitter or have watched my latest videos), I am currently working on my portfolio as a makeup artist! :D (YAY!) I have been working with some amazing photographers and models. Thank you all so much! :) I have promised you I'll show you some of my work, here, on my blog. So I thought why show you only a PART of the portfolio?
I figured instead of posting pictures here, I'll just give you the link to my online portfolio! :)
So here it is: BUT keep in mind I'm just starting working on it so what you'll see there is NOT the final work and of course it will keep updating soon!
So be sure to come back and check it out every once in a while for updates! :) Even when it will be done, I'm gonna be updating it every time I'll do another makeup art work on a client, if I'll really like how it turns out!

Also, I've created an official Facebook fan page! :D Please be sweet and click here to view it and follow me! It will mean a lot and I'll really appreciate it!

So exited about the beginning of my career as a makeup artist, and I'll be sure to keep updating you on everything about it! :)
Wish me luck! ;)
