hair to make up {tips + links}

Yesterday in the Salon I received these pretty products from the lovely Carina over at Everyday Minerals. My clients scheduled hair appointment turned into a make up demo as well. I love to see what's in your make up bag of tricks! 

I've been searching for a new foundation and this one is lovely on my client a little heavy for me, but I liked the coverage, my tip for summer* mix a little moisturizer with a heavier foundation so it becomes more of a tinted moisturizer.

 This pressed powder was used as a highlighter under eyes, *my tip for summer I prefer a glow and love primers like this one from Fresh that leave a little more radiance.
heaven on earth with this little souffle pot of gold. Perfect for an eye primer not too shimmery either and just glides on. A dusting of floating feather's is so sheer and could easily be used as a highlighter.

Speaking of gold, expect to drop a chunk of it for this decadent eye liner. My clients liner looked ooh lalalicious and not too overdone. Another alternative and my favorite gel liner is by Bobbie Brown. For a great tutorial Scroll down and click on the smokey under eye slideshow. A make up artist never knows enough, I love good tips.

Did I mention my client likes luxury treatment? She deserves it too, this mascara works wonders on her, my personal experience too heavy for me and weighed down my lashes  J'adore Dior

a little bronzer like this one from Mac can easily be a staple for contouring as well as adding a summer glow. You can also choose one with shimmer, I like both, *not a big shimmer fan add a little on your decolletage and see how many compliments you get!

The lips, love this color another favorite is Orgasm gloss by Nars.
By the way this shimmery pot was a dead ringer for Super Orgasm blush, and more than half the price!

There you have it my friends a little love for my client Cristiina for sharing her make up bag and to Carina at Everyday Minerals. Check out her site and all of the fun things she incorporates with her philanthropy and this blog. Happy Weekend to you!
