Blog Anniversary, Blog Makeover and other news!!!

My blog will be 6 months old in a few weeks!!! Time has really flew by. I have had so much fun writing my posts-I feel like it's a outlet for me from my UBERBUSY life. I love talking about beauty, skin care and makeup and I will continue to write about those topics. I'm getting a little bored with the layout and color scheme of my blog, so I will be changing the layout and color scheme within the next few weeks.

As always if there is anything you would like to see in my blog please post it in the comments section or email me directly at touchingfaces@yahoo.com Thanks so much for following and subscribing to my blog. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!!

Mini Elf Haul & Review

Elf (Eyes Lips Face) had a 60% off sale on everything on their site about 2 weeks ago in honor of their 6 year anniversary. I had to thank my friend and fellow makeup artist, Stephanie Mz.Squeeks Pattersonfor letting me know. She told me about the sale before I even saw the email from Elf. I had been checking out their makeup artist brush belt for some time, so I decided to get that along with the brush shampoo that I love. I also decided to get their daily brush cleaner too. Here are my thoughts on the products:


Makeup Artist Brush Belt  So far I like the belt. It's very professional looking. It makes me feel "official" and professional, lol. It has about 25 slots to carry your brushes and you can also put in lip liners, eyeliners and glosses in the slots. It's made out of faux-leather and the price is $15, can't beat that because most brush belts start at $40. It has an adjustable strap for hippy girls like me. The belt can be worn around your shoulder or on you…

Dramatic Cut Crease Look

Cutting the crease is an eyeshadow technique that I've been practicing for some time. It's a very dramatic eye look and you sometimes see it on drag queens or fierce divas! If anyone remembers "Mimi" from The Drew Carey Show then you may have an idea of what I'm talking about, lol.

Cutting the crease is a dramatic line just above the eye and you can extend it all the way to the side part of your nose. The line is intended to be sharp and precise to the point that it resembles the sharp line you see when you cut something with a knife or scissors. For me, a cut-crease is not an everyday makeup look that I would wear but it can be worn when you want to stand out or maybe a night out the town or just cause you feel like wearing it. Here is a look that I did cutting the crease. I used Mac's Hello Kitty Too Dolly eye palette that came out in 2009.

As you can see the look is dramatic. I used scotch tape on the sides of my temples to make the sharp, precise line. To …

Mini Haul from Rite Aid

One of my weekly habits is that I browse the sales papers from convenience/drugstores like CVS and Rite Aid. Both stores always have makeup and beauty sales.  A week ago Rite Aid happened to have buy 1 Cover Girl mascara and get the second one free! While looking for mascara-I also browsed the entire cosmetic section (like I always do) and I picked up a few more items. I've used all of the products since I've bought them and here are my thoughts.
Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume Mascara Waterproof
What Cover Girl Says "Get a blast of lush, volumized lashes! LashBlast's patented volume-boosting formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max-out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big lash look. Now in waterproof, too!"
What I say This mascara was $8.99. It's a pretty good mascara... I got it in waterproof (black and brown black) because I plan on using it in my makeup kit for the crying brides. It has the biggest mascara brush I've ever seen a…
