 Client Love 🌸💋

 Dropping in today with some client love. It’s that time of year! The weather is amazing and everyone is out and about ready to be seen! Proms, weddings, graduations, I’m taking on all of the above this spring. Playing apart in people making memories is the best part of makeup artistry. When you look good, you feel good and everyone deserves a day to be a princess. I love being able to use my favorite products on others and show them how they come to life!!
*Pittsburgh, PA and surrounding areas email me for appointments! I would love to be apart of your special day ❤️

Hopping Into Spring 2017 🐰🌸

     Happy Spring Time! April showers, May flowers people! Spring is finally here. I survived my first winter in a couple years and boy am I so glad that is over. Now back to what I relate to, amazing weather. With new weather comes a new wardrobe right? Exactly. With new weather also should come a cosmetic wardrobe revamp! Tuck the heavy smokey eye back in the closet until fall, Spring/ Summer 2017 is all about an effortless glow and “no makeup makeup.”  

   Yesterday, I got the opportunity to attend Spring Cosmetic Training 2017 for the North Eastern Region. Holy cow it was amazing! Anastasia Beverly Hills, Smashbox, Urban Decay, & Bare Minerals were apart of this springs training focus and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you both some new goodies from all the brands as well as some old favorites that will play into the seasons “no makeup makeup” look! 

  I recently worked on the set of a shoot for a boutique store launch (Dear Diary Pittsburgh,PA)  set to open this weekend in Pittsburgh, PA Southside area. For this particular scene we used some of the newly released products to create a look of minimal makeup with a radiant glow. Dear Diary is set to have their soft opening this Saturday (April 15th doors opening @ 12:00 PM. IG Details:@shop.dear.diary @shann_danielle_mua

   Below are just a few of the items I was given to review in the next coming weeks. I can’t wait to share with you guys what I fall in love with, and what becomes a staple in my daily makeup routine this spring 🌸

The Month Of Love ❤️💕

  It’s February! Even though I’m a summer soul, February is one of my all time favorite winter months. The month of February just screams glitz and glam to me. I can feel the love in the air ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.

  Since it is all about love, this month I will feature products, cosmetic lines and inspiration that my clients & I are head over heels about! 

 Today my clients were all about brows. They all wanted tame, natural looking eyebrows, so today’s “Products I Love” goes to Benefit Cosmetics. 

  Benefit products make it so easy to create a flawless brow that doesn’t look too over done. A wide range of shades makes it easy to match any brow color, and the formula makes it great for any skin type. Check out my brow clients today that are also in love with benefit!

 Benefit products are amazing! And this line offers much more than pictured above! Check out the full line @ any Impulse Beauty Macys, Sephora or Ulta location!

Don’t be TARTE-y for The Party🎨

     Favorite palette 10 days into 2017… Tarte’s Tarteist Pro Amazonian Clay Palette. Tarteist Pro consist of not five, not ten, but TWENTY, yes 20 highly pigmented shades, 4 of which are shimmers, and 16 mattes. With so many colors to chose from, this palette can easily be your answer to creating everyday looks as well as special occasion glam. 

     I was given the pleasure of putting the Tarteist Pro to work on one of my beautiful clients. Paired with a nude lip, Tarte’s “Little Black Dress” lashes, and a great glo from Tarte’s Tarteist Pro Glow (which deserves its own feature), I was able to achieve her requested look. A gold shimmering lid with a smoky outer corner. 

   Create endless beauty with Tarteist Pro palette! I promise you will not be disappointed. ​​​Tarteist Pro retails for $53.00 and can be purchased at Impulse Beauty inside Macys!

    5 Things I Learned From A Girl Boss💄🎨

       
    1. Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you. Ask them for advice. 

    2. Fortune favors the bold who get sh*t done.

    3. When you believe in yourself other people will believe in you too! 

    4. If YOU believe what you’re doing will have positive results– it will. Even if it’s not immediately obvious.

    5. You can’t act like you’ve arrived when you’re only just receiving the invitation. 


     – Ms. Sophia Amuroso, Founder & Chief of Nasty Gal and author of #Girlboss.  

       I had the opportunity to meet with this beauty last night. Legit an entrepreneur icon in the fashion industry. Raking in a networth of $250 million dollars by age 31 which happened in just a couple short years. ANYTHING is possible when you work hard and create your own path! 

       
       There is no way I’ll forget about the makeup! Last year Nasty Gal teamed up with MAC and released 3 limited addition lip colors. These lipcolors can now only be purchased on Amazon or Ebay and go for about $50.00USD per lipstick. The shade “Runner” is the perfect shade for fall and is a great addition to any makeup kit if you can get your hands on it!
