Zoya Delight for Spring 2015
The Delight Collection for Zoya Spring 2015 contains three cremes and three shimmers and all of them are gorgeous and perfect for Spring.

I found the cremes were a bit less pigmented and needed 2-3 coats. The shimmers I could get away with 1-2. Such a fun bright collection for Spring, I have had a lot of fun sampling these.

Zoya Tiana is a pistachio green creme. I didn’t know what to think when I first saw the bottle but I really love the color. Very clean and fresh and perfect for the sunny, warmer days.

zoya lillian

Zoya Lillian is a muted aquamarine blue creme. Much paler than your average blue color, love that its so different from any of my other nail colors.

Zoya Daisy is a lemon meringue yellow with turquoise shimmer. I don’t know if yellow is my shade but the shimmer is Daisy is perfection. Might be time to break out of my shell.

Zoya Eden is a bright pink creme. I got a chance to swatch it then my daughter stole it and claimed it as her own.

Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty Shadow Palette

rob scheppy palette

The Rob Scheppy for ‘Tini Beauty eye shadow palette was personally crafted by the creator of Kim Kardashian’s signature smokey eye. This dual-textured collection boasts 4 pigment-rich matte and shimmer shade pairings designed to “cocktail” – wear alone or in any combination to create custom looks.

I like that the palette itself is smaller and can fit in my purse or gym bag. And the shadows were created to be used wet or dry depending on the look you are going for. With a collection of mattes and shimmers this has become a go to palette for my everyday wear.

Swatch of the palette from left to right is White Russian, Pearl Fizz, Rose Champagne, Cinnamon-tini, Pavlova, Cuba Libre, Blackout and Bella Notte.

I found the lighter shades were not very pigmented and didn’t show up very well. The White Russian even with 3 swipes is barely visible. I think a dab of water would make this apply a little darker though. The mid to dark shades though had great pigment and great staying power even when tested without a shadow primer. Overall I think this is a great collection every day colors and a few shimmers to kick your look up a bit. Very wearable and I will be getting lots of use from this set.

Get The Look: Katy Perry’s Super Bowl XLIX Half Time Show with COVERGIRL

Today is one of the most exciting days of my career! Knowing my work would be seen by millions and millions of people I’ve been understandably nervous. Katy’s performance had multiple costume changes so I needed to create a strong look that would complement all of her outfits, as there was absolutely no time for a touch up in between the quick changes. It’s the Super Bowl after all!

I decided to go with a classic Katy look — elongated cat eyes, lots of mascara, super sparkly gold and silver glitter, and a bold red lip for glamour and showmanship. I wanted her to glow and sparkle for her big moment in just nine steps!

1. To create a sheer and flawless canvas I began by buffing a dime size amount of COVERGIRL Outlast 3-in-1 Foundation in Natural Beige all over her face and neck.

2. For an elongated cat eye I used COVERGIRL Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner in Black Onyx and painted a glitter adhesive just above the black liner and carefully placed a mix of gold and silver glitter on the adhesive with a tiny eyeliner brush for precision.

3. Then I applied COVERGIRL Eye Shadow Quads in Blooming Blushes to add warmth and dimension. I love this palette because it takes the guesswork out of getting gorgeous eyes, it has number for the shades – 1,2,3,4 – so I know just how to apply! I used the fourth shade to define the crease and the first shade to highlight the lids.

4. I finished the eye look with an aggressive lash curling and two coats of new COVERGIRL Full Lash Bloom by LashBlast Mascara in Very Black that left her lashes voluminous and touchably soft throughout her performance! No time for flakes during this performance.

5. To give her brows shape and structure, I added COVERGIRL Pow-der Brow + Liner in Dark Brown.

6. For extra dimension, I warmed her cheeks using COVERGIRL Clean Glow Blush in Roses using the lighter shades on the apples of her cheeks and the darker shade in the hollows of her cheeks

7. Then I added COVERGIRL truMAGIC Luminizer to her cheekbones and brow bones for a shimmery glow.

8. Moving on to the lips, I lined and shaped her lips using COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lip Liner in Hot. I then applied a coat of new COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick in Seduce Scarlet – truly a classic red, for a classic Katy look.

9. I topped it off with a tiny dollop of COVERGIRL Lip Lava in Mauva Lava for a fun and bold lip look!
