The show was “fashionably” late, 28 minutes to be exact, and had sounds of blasting techno music. The runways had black everywhere and glowing white circle lights. The runway was to appear as a starry night. Rumor has it Paris Hilton was supposed to walk but was supposed to appear at the FASHION ROCKS which was on CBS that night.

Hair and make-up was very bold and sexy. The hair was sleek and mysterious topped with gold crowns as accessories. A very memorable make up look was the thick eye brows. Between the garments, hair and make-up everything paired perfectly. It was as if each look was suppose to follow each other.

When it comes to make-up it is important to know how to apply it correctly and know the quick and easy tricks. A new make-up trend is called illuminating powder. Illuminating powder is simply just a highlighter for you face. Illuminating powder use to be a long-time professional artist staple, but now its in everyone’s make-up bag.

Mally Effortless Airbrush Highlighter & Blush Duo With Brush: Now, I’m not trying to play favorites here, but this product takes the cake. By cake I mean, this highlighter needs an award! The reflective mineral in this product looks excellent in photos and gives the face a natural appearance if you feel you’ve packed on too much product. Brush applies smooth for even application.

It is important to know how to use illuminating powder. If you use it wrong you end up literally looking like you are ready to put on an act in circus. If you use it correctly, the illuminating powder will give you a “natural glow”. Fortunately for you OMGTRENDS has found how to use it and the best YouTube video.

How I Helped My Skin In Less Than 4 Months

How I Helped My Skin In Less Than 4 Months

Screen Shot 2013-11-22 at 12.41.32 AM

UPDATED PHOTO BELOW

This portrait may come as a huge surprise to the people who personally know me. As a makeup artist, I personally consider it is so crucial to have flawless skin; the truth is, that’s not always possible. I’ve made some severe decisions and my final step was Accutane (which can cause depression, seizures, and cracking of the skin.) I was willing to take those risks. With a ton of research and an angel with a wealth of information on products, I was truly saved.

1. Cut dairy, NOW!

a. Milk/Cheese/Coffee Creamers contains components related to the hormone testosterone that may stimulate oil glands in the skin, setting the stage for acne.
b. Try using the alternative. Non Dairy Creamers, Almond Milk, Silk Milk, etc. Trust me, this made all the difference in the world.

2. Drink like a fish.

a. Water that is… water removes all impurities and toxins in the body. It helps flush out lingering pollutants in the system and helps clear the face and body.

3. Eat Clean.

a. If it’s frozen, microwavable, or pre packaged. You may want to consider the alternative. Keep in mind, this is not for everyone, but I was desperate and willing to try anything.

4. My Main Savior For My Acne.

a. Rodan + Fields, if you have never heard of it, you need to get used to this name… I live, sleep and breathe this product. After only 3 weeks I saw major results.  Unblemish does exactly what the name says. It has now been 4 months and I’m not perfect but I see the forest through the trees. The product keeps working and working. I’ve been recommend this product to all of brides as well who want a clear complexion for the most important day of their lives.

Here are a few photos to show my progress.

Day One: First Day on the Unblemish Program.

Photo 2: First Month on Unblemish. As you can do the redness and inflamation reduced by 50%.

Photo 3: Second Month on Unblemish. My face was cleaning itself of the bacteria. The acne marks are noticeably reduced, stil a little redness.

I am an open book and if there are questions, ask below or if it’s private you are more than welcome to email me at omgartistry@yahoo.com To Order Unblemish from Rodan + Feilds and take the step towards a better tomorrow click here.
