Hello Everyone! A good friend asked me to join them on their podcast yesterday and I was excited because the topic was makeup. I had so much fun. Here is the face I wore along with products used:

Well a lot has been happening in my life lately. First and foremost my baby girl who has been an absolute joy in the life of my husband and I! She is almost 2 and boy has time been absolutely flying by! She has such a huge personality, she's strong willed and so smart. We are so incredibly blessed! Here is our Elle belle as we call her:
In other news I signed with a makeup agency here in Houston named VCI and have started doing more commercials, magazine and corporate shoots, celebrity events. It has been a real blessing and allowed me to do work that would typically be more common in places like New York and California. Here are a few of the projects that I have worked on:

Long Time No Post
So very much has happened since I posted three years ago! Geez, how time flies! I'm still freelancing. I won't write a super long drawn out post on everything because Lord knows there has been some serious things that happened especially in 2013...omg!! The most important thing that has happened is I've had a baby y'all! My husband and I have been together almost 15 years this year and this is our first child. We had our baby girl Elle on January 23, 2015. She was born via c-section and weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce and was 20 inches long. We are absolutely in love! Needless to say, she is keeping us plenty busy and I have put all makeup on hold to take care of her and get into the swing of the things.
I have been thinking about starting my blog back up, but don't even know where to begin. I know that it is pretty time consuming and with a new baby it will be even more challenging, but I miss it. I don't want it to be a chore and want it to be something I look forward to and want to do. So I will probably start off really slow and build as I get more time. I haven't been wearing lots of makeup, but have plenty of things I can swatch and review. How have you guys been? What new products are you all in love with or found out didn't work for you?
Here's some pictures from our maternity shoot this past December taken by Claire McAdams Photography:

Finally onto the conclusion of my crease and blending brushes. These brushes are my multi-use brushes. Sometimes we can get stuck on the description of a brush and use it for only that purpose. I have found that some of my brushes are created for one use, but work best as something completely different. You definitely need to experiment, because you never know what may work best. Please check out my first post to read more information on brush hairs, uses, etc. here.

It's been a while since I've bought products from Mac, but these eye shadows really intrigued me! I love the sponge-like texture and the color pay-off is phenomenal! I plan to use them as a base. Some of them I would wear alone, but I'm sure I would definitely need a base to prevent them from creasing. The site describes them as:
A soft, lightweight, springy formula delivers hue-rich colour in a modern mode.

So continuing on with my comparisons. Today I will be discussing what I like to use as detail brushes for my crease because they are so small. I use them when I want to carve out my crease and create a really defined shape. Please refer to this post for more detail on crease brushes and brush hairs.
