I always get excited for monthly favorites videos. I LOVE getting to share the products from the month that I couldn’t stand to live without. I have a little bit of everything this month, nail polish favorites, makeup ,haircare, skincare, fragrance and even home fragrances.
So, without blabbing any further…here is the video. It’s a good one this month!

I’ve had the pleasure of trying a new makeup line; it’s called Ellis Faas. She makes very fashion forward, edgy , innovative makeup and I was fortunate enough to try some out!
The colors are fascinating, she has some beautiful shades in the collection as well as a “sparkly” eye shadow collection called “lights” that are AMAZING!
All of the packaging is in sleek silver bullets, which I explain in my video is a little interesting and odd to me.. but nonetheless, the reason she did that was to make things easy to put into a holder or clip where all of them can be put into your purse in an organized way. The picture below is from the website so you can see an example of the “holder” I am talking about.
I hope you guys enjoy my first impressions video of these Ellis Faas products.
Lip products are probably my favorite to experiment with. I definitely love trying out new lipsticks, liners and lip glosses. I also love to play with color so I will try anything from a nude, to a really dark plum, bright red, or light pink.
Drugstore finds are always the best. When you can get great quality beauty products at a lower cost, it’s always a good thing. Here are some of my favorite lip products that you can find at the drugstore!
I just received some products from “It cosmetics” and I have never tried anything from this brand before. I thought it would be fun to do a “first impressions ” video of some of the various products so you can get to know some of the products.
I have a CC cream, concealer, bronzer, lipglosses, a makeup brush and more to show you! If you have ever seen these products before or wondered about them, I hope this can help give you more information about them if you are considering trying any out.
Here is the first impressions video I made about It Cosmetics.
I am looking forward to using these more and incorporating them into my makeup routine. I will be sure and update you to let you know if any of these products really stand out and are things I love. So far, my favorites from the collection are the My Sculpted Face bronzers and highlighters. I find this palette extremely useful because it has a variety of sculpting shades.
I also am loving the Vitality Glow Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer. It is wonderful because it’s such a large size, it’s completely Matte and it’s great for bronzing the neck and chest.
Thanks for reading and watching and don’t forget to visit It Cosmetics for more product information.
I have teamed up with Linda’s Photography in Delano this year to do makeup for what they call “Glam Sessions.” They are Senior Photo Sessions that are closer to 4 hours with as many outfit and background changes as you want in that time and you get to work with me as your makeup artist to achieve awesome fun and glam looks that you wouldn’t normally do on your own. You can also have a hair stylist there if you want more awesome hair options.
I love doing makeup for senior pictures, because it seems like just yesterday that I was getting mine done, and I remember how EXCITED I was for them. For most girls this is the one big photo shoot just for themselves they’ll ever experience. So, I think Glam Sessions are a fabulous idea because why not make it extra special and fun!?
Here are some tips if you are doing your own makeup for your photo session.
Hope you all enjoyed this video and found it helpful if you are going to be having your photos taken. If you are a Senior in highschool and are going to be graduating in 2014-check out what Linda’s Photography has to offer and maybe I’ll see you at your Glam Session!
