The Makeup Gods shined down on me today - Chikuhodo z-series

Ok so I have been trying to think of a way to word this blog all day without sounding like I am bragging. But there is no other way to say it. My very good friend Debra also Playboy Playmate of the Year 1978  Click here to Learn more about Debra




 gave me a set of  Makeup brushes today because she watched my youtube video about some of my brushes being missing.  Well Debra just didn't give me any ole set of brushes. Debra gave me the Chikuhodo z-series set.



 Ok.... deep breath in...  I am so giddy I cannot control myself.   The Chikuhodo z-series is top of the line. I mean the Top!  In makeup land these brushes reign supreme.... These brushes are handcrafted in Japan and this is the only series that Tesshu ( Master Japanese Brush Artist and Chairman of Chikuhodo) overseas to the last hair.





They are AMAZING people.  It literally feels like what I would imagine Gods hand brushing across my face would feel like... Seriously.

Ok onto the 2nd part to this amazing gift and this story. Sweet Debra recieved these brushes as a gift from a friend who thought she might use them.  Her friend who I assume a very Hollywood connected sort was in possession of these brushes because something happened to the lady in which they were made for.. either she didn't show up or didn't need them.... something to that extent.  So guess who the lady was?

Sofia Coppola!    Learn more about Sofia Coppola






Now how AWESOME is that?!?!?  Sofia's name is Engraved on all the brushes!
I will absolutely be doing a Youtube review on theses in the Near future!

This is literally one of the coolest gifts ever!
Thank you so Much Debra, you are the BEST!

Just Stuff

Hi my dear Friends :)

  Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been hard at work on building a store webpage for my collection of Eyeshadows. I can't wait! So look for it soon. I hope to have it up and running by the end of next month!  I am really proud of my shadows and have spent the last few months playing with colors and different ingredients and have just really been having a fun time doing it. 

Sorry if I haven't been blogging as often as I should, shame on me! But with the Holiday season here I have been busy busy :)

Winter Skincare

It's that time of year again ladies, the holiday season is upon us .  Its the time of year where we all seem to be the most socially active...  shopping, holiday parties, visiting with family,roasting chestnuts on an open fire... ha.  It's a busy time of the year, it is also the time of year where many of us suffer from dry and chapped skin.  So I just wanted to give you a few tips on keeping your skin looking and feeling its best this Winter.

This is Something you should be doing 365 days a year and not just in the summer and that is you need to be always  wearing a facial moisterizer with atleast an SPF of 15 .  I cannot stress how important this is. Just because it's not hot outside does not mean that the sun rays aren't any less damaging. You will thank me for this is in a few years.
I really like this one!

Wear protective clothing.  Keep bundled up and don't let the extremeties have a chance to to get to your skin.



No hot showers! Warm is fine but a really hot shower is going to dry your skin out more than ever. While in the shower use a body moisturizing shower gel  or try out something new like  a goat milk soap, which is a fatty soap and is oh so nice for the skin, Upon getting out of the shower lather on a nice thick lotion to keep all that moisture in.  Also you sufferers of Eczema, this should  always be the standard  in your routine.

 Chapped lips are major concern that most of us will suffer from this winter.
 Ok first of all stop licking those lips! Next keep your lips protected. I think the best thing to use is plain ole Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly. Either out of a jar or from a tube, start using it now before you they become chapped!  I do not recommend carmex or other lip products that contain menthol.  Menthol will dry your lips out! 

You know you love it.
I hope you enjoyed my tips to keeping Winter Woes at bay. The key, as always, is prevention.  So keep moisturized and bundled up this winter and you should be good to go!
