Some of Kim Kardashians favorite makeup

1. Primers: Intuit Anger Management Photo Shoot. Photo Shoot is a make up primer. I put it on after my moisturizer.” Kim says Photo Shoot “is like a moisturizer that will fill the [pores] on your face which will help set the foundation so it will last longer.”

2. Concealers: Cle De Peau concealer stick in Ocher MAC concealers in NW25 and NW30
3. Foundation: Make Up Forever Liquid Lift in #5 Golden Beige and two pumps of #4 Medium Beige to get the perfect color. She uses MAC Brush No. 180 for this
4. Powder: MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC30 with a big powder brush, then adds a little in NW45 for a tanner look

5. Blushes: MAC Gingerly blush (Kim says she uses Gingerly "to warm me up and give me a little color and then add a pink color called Cheek to give me rosey cheeks.")
6. Eye products: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly to cover the lid.

For black, MAC Carbon eyeshadow ;

For grey smokey eyes, MAC in Knight Divine eyeshadow or Print eyeshadow;

For brown shadow, MAC Embark eyeshadow;

For a fresh shimmery look, MAC Pigment in Tan;

For brighter colors, Kim likes eyeshadows by Make Up For Ever.

Her favorite black eyeliner is Stila Eye Pencil in Onyx.

For lashes MAC Zoom mascara, then apply Lancome Hypnose on top.

7. Lips: M.A.C. Lipliner in Stripdown, then tops MAC Angel lipstick with NARS Turkish Delight lip gloss. For a nude, matte lip, Kim wears Nars Belle De Jour paired with MAC Subculture lipliner.

lashes galore :-)

Me and the Queen of Blending

little prego ol me at 5 months

the only things I bought the lip tars for me and the rest for my kit

The International Makeup Artist Tradeshow was held for the first time ever in NYC on April 9 and 10.  NYC sold out both days which has never happened at IMAT's.  Since last year I knew I was going to go because I'm just a makeup freak/junkie like that lol.  Anywho I arrived anxious to meet the Queen of Blending and buy some OCC liptars since that was the booth she was going to be at.  The Queen was the one who really got me to experience with bright colors about 3 years ago. Watching her youtube videos gave me the courage to play around with my brush, so I had to meet her I mean why not she came all the way from Cali.  Of course along with the Queen a lot more gurus were there like Petrilude, JulieG, Enkore, Nikki, just to name a few.  I'm not really a groupie so I didn't go and take a pic with everybody just the Queen.  All in all I had a great time especially because I went shopping in Soho right after got some goodies for the summer!  Can't wait till next years event.

Adrienne Bailon

I think Adrienne doesn't get enough attention on her fashion style.  I've personally seen her a few times in real life and she is always dressed pretty hot.  She is not really in the spot light like lets say the Kardashians but she is very fashion savvy.  She is definitely someone to look for some of her pictures are impeccable.

Marchell McQueen "Boulee Dress"

The Boulee dress has become a staple in the celebrity world.  Anyone from Audrina to Sofia Vergara has been seen in one of these.  The Marchell McQueen boutique in NJ is taking pre-orders for the gray Rhiana and coral Renee version.  All preorders can be made to this email don't get caught without yours this summer.

"Emsibowture" has come to the scene at a perfect time for me and for any mom expecting a little doll or even those who have young girls.  Emsibowture specializes in headbands, knitted hats, tutus you name it anything to make your little one look fabulous.  All the items are handmade and the material made for the headbands/hats does not leave dents on babies head which is the greatest thing of it all.  Most of all its affordable the whole outfit on the last pic of baby Emma is $23 dollars a great deal if you ask me.  Anything you want can be made to order anything from color design etc the website is

Pregnancy Update

I am currently 2 days away from being 6 months pregnant.  I'm so happy that I am going to be a mom to a mini me.  All my life I dreamed of this perfect moment but never knew all the complications that came along with certain pregnancies.  I am being monitored for something they call Velamentous Cord Insertion.  Its pretty scary when you google it but I have all the faith in my heavenly father that I will give birth to a healthy baby girl.  I can't tell you enough how much my heart hurts from the thought of anything happening and how much I stress.  I know I shouldn't stress but its something that comes with pregnancy when you are worried about your child.  Many nights I sit and cry or just think about all the things that can happen, but in the back of my mind I know everything will come out just fine.  My mind is set at enjoying the rest of my pregnancy and going in with a positive mind, I will fight to my last breath if I have to!  I'm scheduled for my 3rd follow up May 6th I will keep you updated. :-)

Fashion....celebrity trends and my fave shopping sites

As everyone knows who follow me here, fb and twitter that I am a fashion freak. I find fashion like makeup to be an art. I enjoy putting outfits together for me and my friends and also giving my opinion when people ask my opinion for an outfit. I can sit here and count how many texts email etc I receive with people sending pics asking if an outfit looks right and what can make it better. I work in the world of retail only because of my fashion addiction! Of course I have my full time job as well but my retail job is more like a hobby because I get to deal with fashion and customers who like to dress up! As a preggo I miss my job because I couldn't take the long hours standing but after baby I will return full swing. Anywho on my blog I post a lot of celebrity fashions and a lot of time people ask me where a celebrity got something or what brand it is. 98% of the time I know, the other 2% I dont because it could be vintage or non-name brand which would be hard to find. I read up on fashion I follow blogs and read tons of magazines a month I can usually spot a designer piece just by looking at it. To top it off I am a shopaholic I shop way to much literally atleast 3-4 days a week I have a mom who likes fashion to so if i forget about it or dont ever wear it I pass it on to her or to my friends which they dont mind :-). The reason I'm writing this post is because I wanted to share some of the sites I shop at and some of the brands that your fave celebs wear. Keep in mind celebrities don't just wear name brand all the time!

Here is a list of my top places to shop online:
1. The Trend boutique (looks and brands from nicole richie, kim kardashian etc most L.A. trends can be found here.)
2. Revolve (another celebrity trend website)
3. Shop Style (a lot of name brands and trends all in one site)
4. GAP (celebrities like Halle Berry and Jessica Alba are seen in GAP a lot especially for casual wear)
5. Express (celebrities like Ashley Simpson, Audrina, Kourtney Kardashian are always spotted in this brand especially for the summer)
6. Forever21 (who doesn't love this store celebrities seem to like it, some of the girls from basketball wives have been spotted in pieces from this store)

**there are tons more websites to shop at but these are my top stores online everything else like h&m, urban outfitters and bcbg etc I just go to the mall and shop.**
