If you can't tell from my Instagram I'm totally into beauty these days. I've even started freelance makeup for weddings and special events. A great way that I'm able to connect with my clients before their special day is GlamST.com. It's a great way for them create a virtual makeover that allows you to try on as many products as you like, and I'm not just talking about lipsticks and powder. You can demo foundations, concealers, eye-shadows and even eyeliner. GlamST.com is also a great way for me to try out new products such as YSL, Marc Jacobs etc... before I purchase and recommend them. So whether you're prepping for your special event or just a beauty maven such as myself, click over to GlamST.com and create your profile to start trying on products today!
I've tried a lot of CC Creams and I just haven't been impressed, however Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream definitely has my attention. I was recently sent their CC Cream to review. With my combination/oily skin, I normally go for a matte face to keep from looking like you could drain my face and use the oil to fry a pan of chicken, so the fact that this CC Cream drys to a semi-matte finish is a check mark added to the list of reasons I why I would purchase this product! It also simultaneously fights aging, retains moisture and not only does it cover your blemishes, it treats them! Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream can be used as your foundation or applied before as a base primer along with your full face routine. Either way you chose to wear this you will be pleased with a non-oily, perfectly radiant finished face.
Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream comes in shades, Linen, Natural and Wheat. My Shade is "Wheat."
*Don't be alarmed at the CC Cream's egg shell colored formula. The product is formulated to blend in with your skin's natural tone.
In both photos I am wearing Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream (In Wheat) underneath my foundation. This is a daily look for me as I prefer a full coverage face of makeup. Wearing this Hydrating CC Cream underneath my foundation allows an even-toned canvas to complete my flawless face.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ingrid Butler during an impromptu foray with Darling Mickey in Nola while in pursuit of Saks and I can't even tell you how much I adored her upon acquaintance. Not only is she a beauty maven like myself, but she's the owner of LipScape Cosmetics. Now let me first say that I am a make-up junkie and I NEVER commit to one brand, however these lipsticks give me life! So you can imagine that when Ingrid reached out to me about sending me LipScape's Nude Collection, I leaped at the opportunity. Whether your skin is fair, medium, olive or deep toned, this line has been crafted to compliment them all. I love how Matte these LipScape lippies are! Throughout the course of a day I only had to re-apply once after lunch.
"Political" Is a great color for spring! Even though it's a darker tone, it works! I would pair this with a floral look. Perfect for vamping up a afternoon out!
"Geosophy" Is my go -to-nude! I love to pair it with a flawless face and smokey eye... Perfection!
"Economic" I can see myself pulling this baby out just about every Friday. It's safe to wear to the office while sassy enough to take you to a night out with the girls, or the boys ;)
If you're interested in purchasing some of LipScape's Lippy wonders, place your order today at YourLipScape.com or head over to Rise Boutique and pick one up! Until our next fashion rendezvous, Xoxoxo, Candra-Eloise

I couldn't resist putting a classic poem into my own words, because let's face it! After contemplating for weeks what to get your special someone and family Christmas gifts who has time for yet another holiday where you have to put your head into figuring out, "The Perfect Gift"

BUT we don't live in a perfect world so buy your lady something special and avoid that scene! :) Here's my 2014 Valentine's Day Gift Guide (For Her).
