How To Fix Broken Eyeshadows

cosmetic doctor to the counter...stat!
here's what you need on the eyeshadow operating table....
broken shadows
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!!!

I got the inside scoop for you guys on Angelina's make-up....
Here's a list of the make-up used by Angelina Jolie's make-up artist for the Oscars...these are the actual products used....yay!
Le Crayon KhĂ´l in Black Ebony to the upper and lower lash lines. She emphasized the shape of Angelina’s eyes by applying more liner to the outer corners of the eye. Several coats of Ă”scillation Mascara. put a touch of pink to the cheeks using Shu Uemura Blush in M Pink 31 To create ultra-shiny and luminous lips,she used Juicy Tubes in Spring Fling.
Here's what I used (if you want to know....even though I told you the real stuff! ha ha ha)
Eyeshadow....Brule from MAC (a nude matte shadow...no sparkles)
Black liner (Smolder by MAC..make sure it's sharpened pretty sharp)
Eyebrows (a medium brown shadow)
Lips...nude liner like Spice or Beurre from MAC...and I used Underage or Mouth Watering gloss from MAC, you can used MYTH as a nude lipstick too
BLUSH...I just used a cheap hot pink from the drugstore..no brand name...but pretty
and Fake Lashes...Ardell Demi's #101
VOTE FOR THE NEXT LOOK

My Skin Care Routine....tada!


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!

Angelina Jolie...hot, baby collector..ha ha ha







I like Angelina Jolie's look....I am a fan of the nuder-than-nude mouth....so I love her look....I can't even find the perfect nude lipliner that isn't orangey....MAC made a great one, then they discontinued it...darn it! my ideal combo....lipliner in BUERRE from MAC, then I go over it with an almost white-ish, baby pink lipliner from Sephora....then swipe on MYTH lipstick from MAC..and voila...nudey-nude-nude mouth.....



VOTE in the comments below for the next video:

1. What you need in your basic Make-Up kit

2. Request for my skin care routine and products I use to have nice skin

3. Chit chat answers to all the Frequently Asked Questions I get

and then I'll do some more make-up looks...but my week is a lil' crazy with shoots!!!
smiles to every one of you!!!!! kandee
