MAC Cosmetics Summer Shower

P725

MAC Cosmetics Summer Shower in the Fashion Flower collection is also disappointing. It is an icy iridescent bluish color when on my arm, and I was told it is pink on the lips. It is no Lime Crime Mint to Be... sad face...

MAC Quite Cute lipstick

P719

Very disappointed at MAC Cosmetics Quite Cute lipstick. It looks white on my lips. It's definitely not like Lavender Whip or Lime Crime's D'Lilac.

SCAM: MORE DETIALS FOR THE SHOOT

When scammers ask your age, they can search you on social networking sites such as FaceBook and Classmates.com to obtain other information pertinent to committing fraud or identity theft such as birthdays, mothers maiden names, hometowns, etc. 

Agencies are not going to offer transportation and accommodations to someone they just found off the Internet without meeting them.

SCAM: Part 2 - Make-up Artist..Shoot

The inclusion of model information is an attempt to legitimize the scam as a makeup artist job. 

A legitimate agency with legitimate jobs will not ask you to pay anyone let alone in cash. These types of scams operate in the manner that they send you a check for more than what the agreed amount is. You cash the check. They ask for a refund for the overpayment. You send it with your bank checks for your personal account. Later you receive notification from the bank that the check from the alleged agency was bad (closed or phony account, fraudulent, etc.). At that point, your checking account is deducted the amount you refunded to the alleged agency as well as the bad check fee. Additionally, the check you sent to the agency has your bank account and routing numbers as well as your address, phone number, drivers license number, signature, and any other information you have. Scammers can replicate the checks fraudulently and practice tracing your signature to make it appear as if you really did author the check. 

Scammers request the below information: 

Name in full…. 
Residential address in full…. 
City.. 
State... 
Zip/postal code... 
Phone number...(cell and home) 
Age.... 
Sex... 
E-mail Address: 
Charges...$420 (3 hours) 
Any previous experience... 

If you are being hired as a makeup artist or photographer, agencies will not aak for your age or sex. They will nit hire you without meeting and/or interviewing you, because they do not want to put their models in danger. They must maintain their reputations along with their models safety. They do not need your full name or residential address. You should be licensed in your city and/or county to provide these services. You may have a separate mailing address and registered company name. Agencies will accept that for purposes of I-9s and other tax records. 

By releasing the aforementioned information, you are making it easy for scammers to steal your identity, stalk you, or even go to your home posing as a repair person to be let in your hoke for their surveillance. Once they inventory your possessions, they can burglarize your home!

Be smart, and be safe. For crime reports, contact local law enforcement. Orange and Seminole counties have web links wherein you can enter your address to find out which law enforcement agency covers your area.

SCAM: Make-up Artist..Shoot

Makeup artists and photographers - beware of the scammers!

A legitimate agency will have agency license numbers, which are verifiable through licensing boards and divisions of corporations. Most likely the grammar of such solicitations is better, although not by much. 

Their follow up email will also be posted for viewers to notice red flags. 

If you are in the greater Orlando area, ignore these scammer emails! Never release your confidential information to those who are phishing. It leads to identity theft and fraud and compromises your safety, security, privacy, and confidentiality. If you have fallen victim to these and like scams, file a police report immediately! Keep original emails in tact along with any other documentation you may have. Provide these to the local or county law enforcement electronic and/or financial crimes unit. Some local agencies, such as those in Seminole county may defer to county law enforcement. They may also suggest you contact your financial institutions to report the incident in an effort to seek recovery of the stolen funds. Banks will required copies of the police reports. 

These types of crimes take time to monitor and investigate, so do not be dismayed if you do not see immediate results. Always remember to be safe, and be smart.

Morphine addiction, a challenge of delinquency (tags: urban decay, morphine, Orlando makeup artist, delinquency, smokey eyes, purple)


Substitute my gloom with purpleness. A different kind of smokey eye. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Shadow Pencil may be waterproof, but it was not creaseproof. Although no sweating was involved, the shadow pencil was no match for the 92 degree weather in Orlando. These pencils should not require Primer Potion, and once initially applied, it was difficult to blend after 30 seconds. Application of another pencil somewhat erased the previous line. 

Creasing started to occur after a few hours. However, the colors are vibrant and fun! Want to feel like a bad a-s? Try these colors: Barracuda was lined closest to the top lashes with a slight cat eye effect towards the outer corners. Mercury was lined above it out to the cat eye point. Delinquency was lined above that to the crease and slightly above. Morphine was lined yet above that, out to both corners with emphasis on the inner quarter of top lid. Ransom was lined on lower water line. Zero was lined under lower lash line. Ransom was lightly layered over inner corners of lower lash line to blend with Zero. Zero was also used on the top lid to create emphasis. 

If you do not have the shadow pencils, you can substitute Perversion for Barracuda, Gunmetal for Mercury, and Grifter for Morphine. Any of Urban Decay's deep purples will work to replace Delinquency depending on desires effect. A touch of Quickie blush (powder version) on cheek bones, and Naked lipstick completed the look. The cream blush version of Quickie is not quite the same as far as color shade, tone, and cute, cotton candy pinkness. That is disappointing. 

Replicate this eye makeup look with any brand of your choice, and you will be entered to win a free pair of false eyelashes from http://store.got-lashes.com ! Contest ends 05/09/2011 at midnight Eastern Standard Time. To enter, register on the http://www.OrlandoMakeupJunkie.com site and upload a photo. Then post a comment with the link to your upload on the http://www.FaceBook.com/OrlandoMakeup fan page. This contest is for the USA only.

4 Non Blondes
Bigger, Better, Faster, More
Morphine & Chocolate

Substitute my gloom with happiness
Substitute my sickness with health
Substitute my enemies with real good friends
Morphine & chocolate are my
Substitute, substitutes
Morphine & chocolate can bring me up
Can warm my heart whenever i want it
And every once in a while when i stop and think
Morphine & chocolate are my
Substitute, substitutes
And you can say " hey, we've really come a long way "
And you say " hey, it can only be this way "
You might be careful, it really hurts when it's real
You might be careful, it really hurts when it's real
You'll go down, down, down, down, ooh !
Set the alarm clock, baby
Don't you miss the sun ?
I'm feeling really warm hearted baby
Don't you know i'm feeling like someone
I'm fearing for my life again and i am
Fearing for my heart
Morphine & chocolate could never
Substitute my art !
And that's real love baby x3

Green and gold

USF bulls are we. We hold our standards upright and free. For green and gold we stand united, our beacon lighted and noble to see. USF bulls are we, for USF we’ll always be. With all our might, we fight the battle here and now, and we’ll win the victory. S-O-U-T-H F-L-O-R-I-D-A, south Florida, south Florida, go bulls!

Green and gold are not just for Tampa's University of South Florida. They make a pretty combination year round. Green and gold is especially pretty for St. Patricks Day, Christmas, spring, summer - well, just about any time year round!

Try a soft, subtle look such as in the previous "Bronze glam gets a kick to covet" or in the Christmas look series. The look can also be modified for more drama and/or flare. This column focuses more on eyes, since eyes are windows to our souls. 

This look was created using Urban Decay. Homegrown was used on the outer half of the upper lid. Misdemeanor was used in the outer quarter of the crease. Half Baked (not Dave Chappelle) was used in the inner half of the lid. Midnight Cowboy was used under the brow bone. Zero and Eldorado eyeliners were used on the lower lid. Don't forget to visit http://www.OrlandoMakeupJunkie.com for more looks coming soon.

Eyebrows - taming of the shrew

Walking around the mall, at schools, or even downtown Wall Street Plaza, a noted Orlando trend is unkept eyebrows. That is correct.  Orlandoans are trending unkept, untamed, ungroomed eyebrows. If the price of professional waxing is not friendly with purse strings, a free alternative is tweezing.

Tweezing requires daily maintenance to combat strays that sprout overnight. Missing one day can lead to unmanagable brows. How many people consciously think, "I want to look like Bert fromSesame Street." Brows are not as scary or difficult to maintain as one may think. If you need assistance shaping them, follow the below tips.

  1. Hold a straight line from the base of your nose to the corner of your eye.  You can use a pencil, straw, scotch tape, or anything that can give you a straight edge.  Whatever falls on the outside of the pencil should be removed.
  2. Hold a straight line on the outside of the nose, vertically up towards the forehead.  Anything between both brows, above the nose, that falls within the vertical lines of both sides should be removed.
  3. Stick with the natural brow line! Otherwise, you may be stuck with strange, unintended facial expressions.
  4. If you pluck a little too much, you can fill the area with brow pencils.  It is best to try a few colors to see which works best with your skin tone.  For example, although you may have black brows, it may be better for you to use a dark brown brow pencil.  Mac Cosmetics(located at the Florida Mall and Mall at Millenia, and in some major department stores) carries a brow gel that looks like mascara.  This product is amazing!  They also have a brow wax which is used to smooth down the brows.

If you are still in a quandary about your brows, do not furrow. Contact an Orlando area freelance or professional makeup artist for a consultation
.

Lime Crime - Makeup Artist

I am now recognized as an Orlando freelance makeup artist by Lime Crime makeup!

If you are a model in the Orlando / Winter Park / Winter Springs / Casselberry / Altamonte Springs area, contact me to create some fun, exciting looks. You may be eligible for a free makeup and/or photo session!

Lime Crime Pop Culture part 2

The votes were split. Both Mint to Be and Coquette are soft, romantic colors from Lime Crime's Pop Culture collection. Their lipsticks are very highly pigmented, so be careful with application. One important thing to remember when using lipsticks from their new formula is that their lipsticks work best on unprepped lips - no lip conditioner or primer. They will stain and may cause drying, but they appear creamy. Lip primer or condition seem to make the products streak. The darker one is, the more layers the products may require.

These lipsticks are also great to mix with other Lime Crime colors for desired tone or shade. Orlando is too conservative for these colors and products, but they are amazing. Still not sold? If you are recogonized as a freelance (unlicensed) or professional (licensed) makeup artist, visit Kevin Perez at the MAC Pro Shop at Mall at Millenia. There you will find Lip Mix that will allow you to mix and match your own customized lip shades and tones.

Lipsticks are fun, but you can dust a little eye shadow over them for other desired effects. Lime Crime Nymph and Mac Cosmetics Pink Opal or Vellum create a dimensional effects due to their pearlescence and iridescence.

    Lime Crime Pop Culture part 1

    A poll was taken on FaceBook and Twitter as to which lipstick best suits the makeup look for Orlando fashion trends. One purpose of this column is to inspire creativity away from beauty and bridal makeup in Orlando. Artists' work is drab and mundane, and hardly anyone actually is capable of fashion or couture inspired looks. 

    Several of the articles by this author incorporate Lime Crime Makeup. Lime Crime is highly pigmented and survives Orlando's weather trends, heat, and humidity. (Examiner note: local reference to weather in Orlando.) This author is working on getting Lime Crime products into the Orlando market. We already have clever false eyelashes at http://store.got-lashes.com, which is locally operated by an Orlando area artist. 

    Which lipstick do you prefer for this look? Coquette, a muted, pink nude? Or Mint to Be, a soft, cool, mint green? Which do yo think is more suitable for everyday innovations in fashion and style in Orlando? Which do you think is more creative for high fashion and couture styled photos in Orlando? Post your thoughts here.

    Photos from subsequent shoots to follow. Stay tuned and get creative. Do not forget to visit http://www.Facebook.com/orlandomakeup for the next artist challenge: yellow lips.
