12 Days of Good Gifts to Give & Get – Huda Beauty Style

Hi ya Gorgeous,TGIF and Happy Friyay!   What Christmas family tradition will you and your loved ones be doing this weekend?  Mine? Attending a performance of The Nutcracker of course!

Today I have a special 12 Days of Gifts to Give & Get featuring Huda Beauty. I love this makeup brand and the collab with Tarte palette is one of my favorite and go to makeups for the week!


What it is: 
An eyeshadow palette with highly pigmented mattes, chrome pressed pearls, and 3D metal shades in an exclusive Rose Gold Edition. 

What it does: 
Beauty guru and entrepreneur Huda Kattan blends her makeup expertise and with her debut Eyeshadow Palette – Rose Gold Edition. Raising the bar with her unique eye shades, she’s created a palette of highly saturated mattes, chrome pressed pearls, and 3D metal shadows. Easily buildable, the shades deliver maximum payoff for easy on-the-go, or bold metallic and smoky looks. Consider it an accessory for your eyes, no matter what the mood or occasion. An ode to Huda’s favorite metallic, the sophisticated Rose Gold, this exclusive, timeless collection will be your next go-to palette. 

The palette’s versatility allows you to create endless eye makeup variations. Amp up your look by topping it off with one of the 3D metals to give the eyes an incomparable pop. 


This beautiful palette is available on Amazon or Sephora!  Get one for yourself and for your beauty lover!

AZ prom need makeup? Try Vincent Longo water canvass

10 Biggest Hair Myths

Want the whole truth about hair care? Our experts break down the widely-accepted misconceptions here

10 Biggest Hair Myths

This is a TotalBeauty.com hair care products article

We’ve all grown up believing a myth or two. (Who wouldn’t want to believe a fairy pays for our teeth?) But there are a few hair legends — like you shouldn’t use a brush on wet hair — that you may not have known were myths to begin with! Find out the truth from our experts’ list of the 10 biggest hair myths now.

Debunk hair myths

Hello sweet gorgeous!
You look amazing today!
Are you getting ready for prom?

Pictures-just remember, these pictures are the ones that last as long, if not longer than your wedding photos. So please, take a moment and plan your prom makeup and pick a foundation that is going to be as flattering as possible for as long as possible.

Now I do have a short video below demonstrating the Vincent Longo Water Canvas primer and foundation as well as powder-but, the next couple of videos after it on YouTube have the same foundation on-and remember, I did not touch up between takes!

So-here’s what you need to know, the Vincent Longo brand is a professional makeup artist line that can be purchased at Sephora. If you don’t know what shade to get or color to go with your prom dress, just ask a saleslady because in Sephora, all the sales ladies are actually makeup artists and they don’t work on the same commission structure as say, Dillards.

Now, full list of products used below-and remember, this prom moment is an investment for a night that will last a lifetime and the makeup you buy for this even will carry you over the summer and you can fill in trendy looks with drugstore brands. So go ahead-invest in great foundation!
Day 9 of 50 Days Counting the Omer

In the video I am wearing:
Vincent Longo water canvas primer
Vincent Longo Water Canvas creme to powder foundation in #6 warm beige
Vincent Longo Velour Pressed Powder warm #4 ( crazy amazing!)
Vincent Longo Timeless trio eyeshadow
Manna Cosmetics Unsung blush
Vincent Longo Perfect Shine lipgloss in Costa Fiore
Mascara: Avon Super Shock Max in black

You can find Vincent Longo at Sephora ( they are my favorite) or Nordstroms or online. Good luck!

If you need a Mesa Arizona ( Tempe/Scottsdale/Gilbert/Chandler) prom makeup application appointment (**if you need hair say so!) contact me quickly because the last 2 proms are filling up!

If you need a referral in your area just ask!

That’s why we put together this list of reader raves and rants.
