A clean makeup brush is a happy brush
Keeping your makeup brushes clean is Soooo important! As a professional makeup artist it is always important for me to keep my brushes clean. You at home should clean your brushes with a good brush cleaner at least once a week for any brushes you use for any powder products such as eyeshadows, blush, and powder. Any brushes you use for concealer, foundation, cream blush or shadows should be cleaned daily. You wouldn't run around with not washing your hair for months on end. S
Kim Kardashian knows how to glow
Everyone keeps their eye on what Kim Kardashian does to look flawless all the time. Her best kept secret is the Intraceuticals Infusion treatment. This treatment works instantly to lift, tighten and hydrate the skin. Having this treatment done on a regular basis will prevent your skin from becoming dehydrated. Dehydration is the main cause of skin looking older, more wrinkled and lacking in over all glow. You can choose anyway to use the Intraceuticals infusion treatments. Ha
A warm glow for summer
There are a million highlighters out on the market. But only a few really produce a nice glow without making your skin look aged, enhancing large pores, and reflecting so much light you cause a car crash. I recently picked up the Warm Gold highlighter from Chanel. Its the perfect highlighter for tan or deeper tone skin. It gives a beautiful glow to the skin, without making you look like you're trying too hard. I also have the Rose Gold limited edition Le Signe Du Lion highlig
Dark circles be gone!
Finding a good concealer and can be a long pursuit. But YSL cosmetics has made it easier. I picked up a few shades of the new YSL All Hours concealer to try out. And it's really a great concealer! It gives great coverage and blends effortlessly into the skin or foundation you're using with it. I was using Chanel's Long Wear concealer, which is a good concealer, but can leave more of a powder finish under the eyes. The YSL concealers are smoother and have a more skin like fini
Sheer is the key word in makeup for this summer. And Chanel has you covered.
Chanel recently launched their new Tinted Moisturizers. These foundations have Hyaluronic Acid to help plump the skin up and give you a luminous glow. They also have an SPF of 30 to protect your skin from sun damage. I recently purchased 3 shades to try out on my clients and I have to say, they are fabulous. They give a beautiful glow to the skin while giving you a nice skin tone balance. They even out your skin, yet let your freckles still show through. This is not a foundat
Become your own artist with Makeup Forever's Artist Pencils

Keeping up with Karl Lagerfeld
Karl Lagerfeld never rests. He's always inventing or designing something new either for his own fashion line, or for Chanel or Fendi. This summer Karl Lagerfeld has released a small makeup collection available at Nordstroms. Normally I don't pay much attention to novelty makeup, but I always enjoy what Karl Lagerfeld does. This collection is just basic and fun. The thing I like most is the packaging. Its very silly because it's actually Karls head on top of the glosses, lip b
Chanel Cruise 2018/19
As summer is just beginning for most of us. Chanel is already launching what we will want and need for Cruise next year. Fashion always works 6 months ahead. Its hard to get excited for warm winter clothes in the spring/summer months. But there is no rest for the wicked. The Chanel Cruise had a slight nautical theme to it this year. Fun accessories that resemble life preservers. A beret that goes with everything. And plastic over lays on top of dresses or mixed into the dress
Are you feeling blue?
Chanel has launched their Cruise collection for 2018/2019 and blue was the star of the show. Blue was shown to be the main color that ran through out the entire collection. But where blue really stood out was on the eyes. Chanels new fall pallet Quiet Revolution features 2 new blue shades, a grey, and possibly a taupe shade from what I can tell from pictures. And it looks like Chanel will also have new eyeshadow pencils. These pencils look fatter and more creamy than a classi
