You don’t have to already have skills to attend this school they will take the passion you have for learning the art of makeup and mold it into a full on artistic safe just bursting with talent. What’s so great about this school is that it teaches at EVERY level. No more searching for where an already working artist can go to sharpen their skills or learn new skills, gone are the days where you would only attend classes if you didn’t have a clue.

The Makeup Forever Academy welcomes all and their class schedules are so accommodating that just about everyone can attend if they’ve got their mind made up.

Product Review- “Whish” Body Butter

WhishSet

So I received this body butter in the mail and I gotta admit I was overjoyed. I absolutely LOVE body butter!! Unreasonably so actually. It’s called “Whish” and I absolutely love their shave cream so I couldn’t wait to use this little goodie. The name alone sounds like it’s fresh and light “whishhhh” like a warm summer breeze.

Whish

After using it for a few weeks I thought I’d let you all know what I think just in case you were in search of a good body butter or simple gift to give yourself or someone else.

Scented lightly with lavender (one of my fav’s) it doesn’t over power my perfume but definitely doesn’t go un-noticed and felt less like butter and more like a thicker lotion. NOT to be confused with a cream either however. It was kind of in between. It goes on smoothly and absorbs rather quickly without leaving a greasy trail once it’s soaked in. The softness last pretty much until your next hand washing and that’s saying a lot since I use hand sanitizer all day long.

I wouldn’t say that I was disappointed with this product just simply had a completely different idea of what it was going to be prior to using it. I’m used to thick shea butter like body butter or at the very least, the consistency of the body creams from bath and body works. Still, this hard working, sweet smelling gem is def one I want at my desk always. whishbodybuttersingle

Did You Know?

Did you know?
That some after makeup face sealer can also be used as a primer?! Welp, it’s true. One of my favorites to use for this is Ben Nye Final Seal. With its misty fragrance and light feel it’s an ideal choice for priming as well as sealing!!

It’s made for stage makeup so it’s heavy duty in its effort to keep you waterproof and sweat proof. This is awesome for every day but especially important for big events like weddings, gala’s, prom’s etc.

The frosting on this cake is that this products isn’t going to break the bank either. With sizes ranging from 2 fl oz to 16 fl oz and pricing ranging from $2- $25.50 it is definitely something worth packing in your makeup bag/kit.

Fall Inspiration…Bring it on OCTOBER!!

As much as we love summer, inevitably, since we’re only allowed our rationed 2 weeks of it, we all have to adjust to fall. At first we’re resistant and even in denial from time to time but as Halloween approaches we’re faced with the harsh reality that the flip flops must go and out come the boots.

Boots you say??? That doesn’t sound so bad to me. Tall, short, over the knee, or ankle booties all of them so versatile and so fun!
