Winner’s Round Up!

A few weeks ago I had teamed up with Sally Beauty for a giveaway of a $45 Gift Card and a beauty consult on skype helping the winner know how to spend it:)
The Winner was Chelsey Patti and she was an absolute pleasure to chat with, and SO BEAUTIFUL!


She also has a blog called Patti Cake, isn that the best name? I’m all about doing a play on words using your own name, so we were totally on the same page.
She talks about fashion and beauty and life, so definitely check it out:)
Here’s a round up of what we discussed and what I thought she might love:


1. Eye Shadow Quad: So Chelsey lives in Nashville where she has no shortage of HUMIDITY. One of her concerns is that her eye liner bleeds and droops by the end of the day. I told her we can combat that in two ways. One: By setting your liner with a dark/black eyeshadow (using a liner brush or angled brush) which goes a long way to keeping it put…

2. Palladio Liquid Liner: The other option is by using a liquid liner. They are reliable at staying in place as long as you have time to use the steady hand that liquid liners require!

3. De-frizz Wand: She also has beautiful curly hair, which I know can be troublesome on hot humid days. This little magic wand is an AWESOME option for taming baby hairs and fly aways. I love it’s size too, just pop it in your purse in case you have a hair go haywire!

4. Roux Color Refresh Mask: I love her gorgeous vibrant hair color! I just tried this color refresh mask last week and I love it! It’s like a deep conditioner and a hair glaze all in one. Pick the color closets to your own and throw it on in the shower , leave it for 5 minutes and rinse it out. It gives new life and moisture to your hair.

5. OPI Berlin There Done That: I can tell from her blog that Chelsey is a big fan of awesome nail colors! So I picked one of my favorite fall colors!

Hope you have a fantastic Labor Day Weekend!

    Your posts are always spot on for good recommendations so when I was reading your comment about Chelsey’s issue with her eye liner bleeding, I knew I had to share one of my recommendations! The best and I mean the absolute best product your money could ever buy is by “Two Faced” and is called “Shadow Insurance”. I use the original. This little blue tube of pure magic will keep any makeup you put on your eye until you take it off! The tube will last you for the longest time! Just a little pin size drop is all you need to smooth over each eyelid. This will be your new favorite that you will not want to ever be without! I hope you try it and then let me know what you think.
