So I just jumped on Style.com, which is a great place for inspiration. And I clicked on the Trends+Shopping tab (I was reading a tweet from Pursebuzz that got me looking)... so up pops In The Mood For:Pumps. I am guess it's trending for summer... which I have to say I am happy about(one less pedi!) This got me thinking about makeup, colors, and thoughts about what to wear as per season.
What do you all think about this trend... closed toed pumps for the summer? What do you think about makeup trends per season... which ones do you "break"? Let me know... and tell me your about your fav pair of heels! ~JES

I have used other Kiss products with GREAT success... so I am happy to try another branch of their company!!
Once again I had a wonderful year at The Makeup Show NYC!!! This was my 3rd year in a row... and I already cannot WAIT for next year!!! So hands down... for me these were 2 of my favs from the show... ready?!?!
I know I tweeted about my interest in this brush company as soon as I saw my Youtube friend Vanessa (@vanewpc) tweet her review on them!!! So Bdellium Tools gets my first pick. They were setup on the 2nd floor, along with Eve Pearl, Xotic Eyes, Empire Beauty School, and others. Heading out their collection had to be the Green Bambu series which boast Bamboo handles! The "Bamboo is one of the most sustainable resources and environmentally sound plants on Earth.1" The 100% synthetic bristles of the Green Bambu collection are NOT treated with the antibacterial agent. Good call tho, since synthetic brushes "are less likely to accurebacteria2" and everyone will want to see the cool green tint of the Vegan bristles. I also picked up a few of their Studio Line which are treated with the antibacterial agent and are all 7 layer lacquered birch wood handles.... I can't wait to try my new 985 which is a Duet Fiber powder brush!! If you can think... soft... it's still so much softer!!! LOL Watch for my haul video to see all of the brushes I picked up!! This BDellium link details upcoming shows they will be part of!
Pick 2... Pete Estey, President and Shanna Matthews, Creative Dir. at Naked Cosmetics once again came up with a product people love and who doesn't love a multi use product(7 different ways by my count!). Shanna introduced me to the newest collection.... ready.... wait for it.... TWILIGHT3... forget about it... I was reaching for my wallet before "-light" came out of her mouth!!! I think she saw how excited I was about the name that she gave me a set!! So I asked since I remember that the natural pigments could be used in different ways... "Can I mix these into Acrylic powder for nailart?" and the answer is YES!!! How awesome is that?? So look for some more nail tut using these 100% oxidized micas! Look for Naked Cosmetics at their next trade show.
Notes:1: Quote taken from pg 5 of the Bdellium Tools product brochure. 2: Quote taked from pg 7 of the Bdellium Tools product brochure. 3: I believe this collection is new to the line... I didn't see it on the Naked Cosmetics site. I was given some products by both of these companies, but I do not work for nor am I bias in anyway.
So I have been seeing all this buzz on Twitter about the newest trend in makeup... The Lip Tattoo. Hmm... really. I have to say I haven't seen this look in person, nor have I tried it myself(outside of editorial)... but I really can't see this used as an everyday look!! Or even a special event past a costume party, theme day, or theme party. I mean why would I want rainbow lips to go the club(maybe I am too old for the clubs now) You might be saying... "Doesn't she do nail art...?" I am not against it, never against someone doing something different, creative, or fun... but doing on your own.
Hey everyone!!! I am excited to let you guys know I am on the road to my 3rd year at the NYC Makeup Show which is produced by The Powder Group!!! I am super excited to go again to the show... and get my shopping on!! If you are planning on attending let me know or if you see me there say hello!!! Here is my haul video from last year!!!
