here's what you need on the eyeshadow operating table....
ziplock or any plastic bag
butter knife or spoon
rubbing alcohol (70% is fine, or if you can get 90% or higher it will just dry faster)
a squeeze bottle to put the alcohol in (this is optional..just makes it easier)
a coin (a quarter is the perfect size)
pieces of a cut up t-shirt or fabric (you can use a tissue but it doesn't work as well)
In the video I used matte eye shadows....this technique works for shimmery, sparkly, or matte....
actually it works best for matte shadows...shimmery ones have larger particles mixed with smaller ones....this makes them more fragile and much more breakable...
this works the same for matte or shimmer...they are all pressed the same way in the factory....just the sparklier ones will always be more fragile...
This is the quickest and simpliest way to fix your eyeshadows, blushes, face powders, anything powdery in a compact!
So here's to your Operation Save A Shadow!!!

make-up I used:
eyeshadow: nudes (pinks, peach, or skin color) from MAC pink n' pen, brulle or a peach color
dark brown or grey (from MAC I used print, carbon or nehru, or espresso
black eye liner (to line the rims of the eye use a waterproof liner-it will last longer!) I used Smolder from MAC, but any black will work
lips- nude color (you can even just put concealer on them and gloss
I used Myth lipstick from MAC and then Estee Lauder PURE PLATINUM Pure Gloss
and L'Oreal Double Extend Tubes Mascara
and a light pink blush in ANGEL from MAC

I'm so honored that you guys actually thought my hair looks "good" enough to ask for a video....I usually think it looks pretty not-good...ha ha ha ha
What you're gonna need:
Bobby Pins (a lot)
Hair Spray (i used Paul Mitchell's Working Spray- it's not as stiff as some are...hair still looks touchable)
Molding Creme (like Head Games REworkable Sculptor or KMS shaping creme)
*put the molding creme on before teasing and after to smooth)
a round boar bristle brush for super-teasing of the hair

hi all my peeps!
so again....i accidentally erased the video I did on "what you need in your basic make-up kit"..ahhhhhhhhh...so frustrating!
but.....I didn't erase my "skincare routine" video! YAY!!!!
so here we go....off to the land of "near perfect" (or as perfect as you can get your pores!) skin-land....
I am so tired from my shoots this week....and then trying to make videos at night.......BUT...after my Skagen jewelry campaign shoot today...I stopped by the MAC store...where my girls called me up and said, "Come and pick up you HEllo Kitty...make-up"...
I'm gonna do a look with the new Hello KItty Collection..I love it...there is a lipstick you should all go get....I'll tell ya about it soon!
smiles and sparkles.....kandee!
oh PS...I forgot to mention in the video...if you get a zit or some kind of breakout....buy something with Salicylic Acid...it kills the bacteria which caused the blemish in the first place....and creates a protective barrie from further infecting it....my FAVORITE is SPOT REMOVER from Origins...you can get it here: http://www.origins.com/templates/products/sp_nonshaded.tmpl?ngextredir=1&CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY5808&PRODUCT_ID=PROD43
everyone whold have this in their bathroom cabinet!!!
YAY~ i just realized I didn't erase the "make-up essentials videos"...I'll post it tomorrow!
VOTE in the comments below for the next video:
1. What you need in your basic Make-Up kit
