Color Switch

Color Switch is the makeup artist’s best friend. I can’t believe how this little accessory has helped me with my work! It’s a tin with two compartments. The large black section is to wipe your makeup brush to get rid of all the color pigments so you can use another color without the muddying and I don’t have to wait for the brush to dry like when I use a brush cleanser, which really saves time. A few swipes across the sponge and I’m ready for the next color. The white little sponge in the center is for wet application. Wet the sponge and dip your brush in then your powder pigments or shadows to intensify without the mess. Love it!

Summer lips

Recently I discovered several lip balms that are very pigmented and gives that just bitten look that I adore and all are packed with wonderful oils and vitamins that keep the lips looking plump and juicy.

The first is Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm. They come in great colors and feels creamy with good staying power.


Next is Josie Moran Argan Infinity Lip and Cheek Creamy Oil. Comes in a squeeze tube with six colors. All are beautiful! I love how thin it applies with minimum amount to full on color gloss with a bit more squeeze.


The final pick is Fresh Tinted Lip Treatment with spf 15. Comes in 5 gorgeous summer colors. These are very soft and can break if you apply pressure so keep the lid screwed on tight.
