It’s SO FREAKIN’ HOT today! I’m pretty sure it’s going to get to be about 100 degrees outside, maybe more. But I still wanted to do a little something with makeup, to celebrate Independence Day. So I went for a Naked (literally) glow:
So here’s what came home with me from this year’s IMATS:
I told you guys that NAKED got all my money. I bought the deluxe set of creams, which translates into four full size and four travel size containers of the cream. Allegedly, you can use it EVERYWHERE and even use it to boost your own products. So, that’s what I’ve been doing… I’ve pretty much mixed it with everything, and in the last 24 hours I’ve put it in my hair, on my face, and on my body. It’s chock full of fabulous ingredients (aloe barbadensis, melaluca honey), so I feel very safe using it.
So far, so good.
Bronze Bonanza from Napoleon Perdis. Nothing in this set is actually bronze, but whatever. It was 20 bucks…and it’ll do in a pinch.
NAKED Cosmetic Pigment Stack in Sierra Nevada. These pigments are safe for use EVERYWHERE, including eyes, lips and even nails. MAC… I’m looking at you. NAKED is over here showing you all the way up!
A lovely gift from the lady at Crown Brushes. Bianca and I were among the last to leave, and the IMATS people were pushing us out the door. The owner was MORTIFIED and ran after us with a brush each for us. She was so apologetic and sweet. We totally appreciated it.
Bindi and Deep Plum eye pencil from Sumita Beauty. This place is local, and offers a professional discount. Who knew?
