Beauty Event: P3 Beauty Tea

Since I was a little girl, I've always been obsessed with tea parties and dressing up! So what better way to have a tea party than to share it with some special friends!

My company, P3 Lab, is having a Beauty Tea co-hosted by some awesome bloggers and beauty pros: Maeling Tapp of Naturalchica, Mattie James of Mattieologie, makeup artist/vlogger Alexandra Butler, and yours truly! The wonderful tea is sponsored by Soren Tea!

The Beauty Tea will serve as a social gathering and networking platform for all makeup artists, hair stylists, curly girls, beauty bloggers, and beauty enthusiasts. There will be giveaways and shopping opportunities during the event as well. Stylist attire is encouraged and will be rewards.

Prom Photoshoot with Crush by RJ Formals

Last week I had the pleasure of working with an awesome formal dress designer and her prom dress collection Crush by RJ Formals! It was a 3 day shoot and we put in a lot of work shooting over 100 dresses! For those of you that know me, know that I love to do flirty yet pretty makeup and this was a great assignment for that type of makeup look. Lots of blush, fresh-looking skin, lashes, and pink lips! Check out some of the shot and behind the scene pics. Be sure  to check out Crush's website at  (ps, thanks Robin for sharing some shots on Facebook!)

What's in the Makeup Kit

I often get asked what I personally carry in my makeup kit. Well I could spend all day detailing every single piece, but I'll highlight a few essentials and my favorite investments!

1) Brushes. I have a variety of brushes from different brands like Sigma and MAC. (A stipple brush is a must, along with an angled blush brush, round MAC 109, and a very small angled brush for brows and liner)

2) Foundations. I carry a variety of foundation types. For a Matte finish and especially for TV/HD cameras I use Makeup forever HD foundation. For dewy finish I prefer to use MAC Face and Body.

3) Concealers: I have used many concealers and honestly Bobbi Brown is my fave, but I currently carry Makeup Forever palettes No1 and No4 along with some random Ben Nye colors.

4) Powders: I have a bunch, but I condensed my kit to a few Ben Nye powders, Makeup Forever Super Matte Loose Powders, NARS Albatross Highlighting Powder, and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powders.

5) Lips: Too many to name but I love NARS and MAC lipsticks, lip glosses and lip liners. However I do have some glosses and lipsticks from NYX, Milani, and L'Oreal that work just as well.

6) Eyes: There's way too much to name here but I have a slew of MAC eye shadows, Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance, Maybelline Waterproof Falsies, and Duo glue stay in my kit.

7) Lighting: Glamcor travel lighting system are my most recent investment.

8) Travel Case: Zuca Sport Pro

9) Miscellaneous Stuff: Wipes, Sponges, Glycerin, Milk of Magnesia, Hair pins/clips, Makeup Forever Flash Color palette, spatula/steel plate, and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.

Until next time....have a POSH PRETTY day!
