What a DAY!!!!

How fortunate am I that my buddy from High School, Josh, has this SUPER successful radio show in Syracuse and he invited me to come on after his co-host bragged that he could handle a glycolic facial - and I was going to serve it up!

If you want to see the video for the segment - click here - its awesome!

and make sure you check those guys out - they are a lot of laughs!  100.9 KROCK!

THEN I headed over to the 9 WSYR Studios, where I was asked to co-host Bridge Street with Chris Brandolino

Chris is so good to me, he always helps me out and makes me comfortable!  We had a ball doing the opening segment, host chat, which you can watch by clicking on the link below!


My other favorite segment was this one about Fall Foliage!


We also had the opportunity to talk to some wonderful volunteers from Sunshine Farms, where they rescuse horses and allow them to be adopted or retire safely!!


Here is another segment we did:

Thank you everyone for tuning in and for all your support!  It was a blessed day!!!!

Rosa M's First Fashion Show

This is a momentous occasion for Rosa M, I reached out to Syracuse's premier Bridal Stylist, and essentially begged for the opportunity to do the makeup on the models for one of her Bridal shows!  Marie was so amazing and allowed me to come in and have creative license to glam up the models for show Bridal designs in all silhouettes and styles!

I started the models off by doing color correction and contouring

All the beautiful gowns from Spybaby
One of my lovely models allowed me to try a full glitter lip, and the results were incredible!  I especially loved how she looked during break, like a real life Cinderella laying in front all her gown choices for the ball!

Beautiful model backstage

It was such a fun experience to get to do my life long pal, Valerie's, makeup for the show - she looked incredible in all her gowns!
Valerie was an amazing model!

The fabulous Meredith (who was super pretty with this killer thick hair and willingness to try any makeup look!) OWNED this black and white ensemble that the Brides at the show swooned over!  It was one of my favorites!
One of the Best Dresses of the Day!

Lovely Models!

After the models roamed the bridal expo and greeted guests, it was time to get serious backstage and start the show.  Valerie and the other models had a GREAT time with it...and so did the ADORABLE flower girls!

Get Your Makeup Bag Ready for Fall

If you didn't catch my radio segment this morning (or you did and you're diggin everything Fall and want more) then you have to read on for how you can upgrade your makeup bag to be ready for Fall 2013 with just a few products!

Deep Burgundy Lipstick

nothing says 'Fall' like the perfect semi-matte dark lip!  This year the deep plums and burgundy shades have it - and its vampy and sexy!

My pics: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in  "Shame" ($23 at Sephora)

Metallic Eyes

New York Fashion Week has been showing us that metallic lids are still hot - and for Fall they are featured in deeper shades (rather than light silver, think plums and bronze)

My pick?  Stila's NEW Magnificent Metals Shadow ($16 at Sephora)

This super rich pigment is so amazing, it needs its own applicator serum!
When you combine the waterproof liquid with this 'foil' you get supreme coverage for a bold look that is incredible!

Smudging Crayon

Whats hot now is this messy smudged look, preferably in deep matte shades

look how with a lighter color how fun this trend is (it doesn't have to just be black)

My pick?
Tarte SmolderEYES Smudging Crayon $22 at Sephora (Its even waterproof!)
Tarte - SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner
Its complete with smudging sponge to help you achieve that perfect 'messy' look!

Check out this look, it has a bit of all three elements of the fall trends!

Bonus Fall Trend?  Check out a mossy green nail polish!

It's a HOT color for Fall!!

My Pick? Zoya's Polish in Shawn $8 (Salon Plus in Destiny Mall)
It's the perfect shade to pull off this trend!
