Make up and beauty finds.

So I just wanted to share with you that I have been shopping crazily for make up, foundations, brushes, blushes, bronzers etc..I wanted to share my experience so far and opinion. And what I think the best one that worked for me. I recently purchased Make up Forever foundations, Lancome, Revlon and Mac.  I have been a Mac users since high school and have been very happy with  Mac, but with my oily face, I'm always in search for a new and Matted foundation with full coverage.   I tried the Mat and Velvet MUFE, as well as the HD foundation along with the powder foundation Duo Mat and Pro Finish.  I do like the Mat & Velvet better than the HD in their liquid foundation.  I felt like it lasted longer without having to put more power on top.  With Mac, I felt like my face would be oily within a few hours, and I was touching up constantly maybe 3-4 times a day.  Although, I like the fact that Mac has a lot of foundation color to choose from, they have one that's closer to my skin color.  By the way, when choosing a foundation, when you have oily face like me, always try to get a one shade lighter than the one that matches your skin.  Because of your oily skin, it tents to absorbed the color and makes it one shade darker that you'd like.  I know this because I've experienced it many times.  Everybody always wants me to get the perfect shade for my face, but the second I step outside that store, my face is darker than my neck and I hate that look.  I do like the Duo Mat powder foundation a lot, great coverage and its flawless.  I like Pro Finish on top of my liquid foundation, it sets the whole look.

 I also purchased their Matte Bronzer #40  for contouring and I do love it a lot.   So one day I went to Sephora and had one of their make up artist do the make up IQ foundation finder and it pointed me to Lancome.  I do like Lancome I have used their blush and bronzer before and now also bought their subtle Blush, so I thought I'd try their foundation this time. I bought their Teint Idole 24H Make up in Bisque 410 (W).  So far I like it. But definitely pretty pricey.  I then tried Revlon Long wear liquid foundation and for the money it was pretty darn good.  I did freshen up a couple of times, but the coverage is great and doesn't fell like you have too much on.  I like the fact that is full coverage too.

I also bought some brushes and tried the ELF from Target and so far it's been great.  I bought their blush and eye shadow brushes. Love them and for the price, you can't beat! If you are looking for Skin Care Products, try Lisa Hoffman Hydrating Mask. I use it 3 times a week.

Give the Gift of Lisa Hoffman Beauty!

I love the way my skin feels afterwards, so silky and smooth. Let me know if you are like me, always searching for that perfect make for your skin type.  Because I haven't found the perfect one yet.  :) But here are some links to find some for the meantime from Total Beauty Shop

IPhone 5s Tilt Lock IOs 7.0.3

Okay so for those of you that just got your Iphone 5s, I had trouble getting my "tilt Lock" unlock.. It's actually really simple. All you have to do is swipe your finger up from the home button, just like you would if you were turning on your flash light, it's in the same window, top corner of that home page. So there you have it.

Great water Bottle to use for workout.

Tips on how to take photos of your kid/s

Okay, so we were in Lake Tahoe over this summer..I wanted to take some gorgeous shots of my kids. Some turned out really cute...but I also had tons of them that turned out NOT so cute. Hence, they were not in the mood of taking pictures after they just had breakfast that morning. So, I was being pushy and saying smile, say "cheese" even though they were not too happy with me at that time I figured what the heck. I wanted to take photos before we went out to our adventure that day. I thought what a beautiful setting outside, lots of trees and just gorgeous place. I found out that taking the most extraordinary SHOT is being Patient, talk to them like you are having a regular conversation. Make jokes, laugh at each other. Just have that camera ready to click because any second now you'll get that special moment shot...Kids being KIDS....smiling naturally and not being forced of smiling into the camera. I'll upload some pictures later of some great ones and ones that are NOT so great ones when I said say "cheese". So my advice is BE PATIENT with your kids, or any kids you have to work with, play with them a little and tell a stories or jokes let them tell you a story of their own...They'll love it and you'll get the most natural smile you'll ever have. This will work on any kids that you'll take pictures of...So go out and shoot some great PHOTOS. You'll be glad you did. Let me hear your story. Would love to get other ideas and experience from other people.

Pictures will upload later...
