New Rawwbeauty lip liners!!

Happy Saturday Beauties! 

I wanted to share with y'all all of our new lip liners that were just added to the line. These are all waterproof and stay on all day. It is great to use these under your lipsticks to help them last longer. These are great new colors for fall too because they are darker. Browns have really made a comeback and I wanted to add that to my line. I am obsessing over them. S'more is one of my faves lately along with Lady Godiva. They aren't online yet so if you are interested email me hello@rawwbeauty.com and we can mail it to you. You can also come in-studio and check them out in person. 

Left to right: Ballet (matte), Holly Berry (shimmer), Neapolitan (matte), Cinnamon Sugar (shimmer), S'more (matte), Lady Godiva (matte), Shiraz (matte), Dark Chocolate (matte), Bordeaux (matte).

New products in studio. Kett/Esum/Viseart

We are beyond excited to be carrying new products in our studio in Birmingham, AL. If any of you know me at all you know that I am very loyal to a brand I fall in love with. I have been using some of the same products since I started my journey with my business. I love to use products that I know will last, react to skin and how they wear. Well, recently I decided I needed to try a new airbrush compressor because mine was heavy and I wanted to downsize. This is where Kett came along. I have used some of the products before and knew the brand pretty well. I placed my order and started talking with one of the owners of Musebeauty and the relationship was born. I tried Kett Hydro Foundation and it was love at first use. Keep in mind I have been using the same airbrush foundation for the last 5 years. I am now switching over all my airbrushing foundation to Kett.

Let me tell you I am IN LOVE with this foundation. It has completely changed my love of airbrush and the way it looks. Not to say I still don't love my other brand but this is even better. Within 3 weeks of using this in my kit I have completely changed out a LOT of products in my kit. I love it so much that I am now a retailer for Kett. Now the products I use on your at your appointment can be purchased alongside my makeup line Rawwbeauty.

We are also carrying ESUM an AWESOME line of makeup brushes. These brushes really hit home with me and the way I do makeup. I love supporting independent brands of makeup and tools created by artist for artists. These are handmade and great for artists and consumers to use everyday. I know you will love them as much as I do.

Last but definitely not least we will be carrying Viseart eyeshadow palettes. When you see how much pigment these have you will fall in love. I also really love the size of them. They are half the size of my current palettes and take up so much less space in my kit. Whether you are a makeup artist using these in your kit or in your personal makeup bag they will rock your world.

I started only using Kett foundation for my airbrush and also the Viseart palettes for my shadows. I am so glad to be carrying all these wonderful lines in my studio and can't wait for you to try them. If you have any questions about them or want to purchase them let us know. They will all soon be on our website www.rawwbeautycosmetics.com and also in studio later this week.

We will also be offering a PRO DISCOUNT for full time makeup artists. Please inquire if you are interested in purchasing from us. We are the only ones in Alabama carrying the lines and very proud of it. If you are an artist and need products for your kit please check us out.

Americana with a 70s Twist

With July 4th quickly approaching I wanted to throw it back to this fun 70s inspired Americana shoot we did. It was so much fun as always working with Jennifer of Jennifer Woodbery Photography. This was when Cassandra first came on to work with us at Rawwbeauty and we are so glad she is a part of our team. Tammy and I actually worked with Cassandra on a wedding we did a year before when she was still in Cosmetology School.

Let us know what you think of this fabulous shoot. Below are some of my favorites from the shoot but also check out the link to see even more.

Birmingham Fashion Week 2015

Had such a great time with all of my mua and hairstylist friends at BFW this year. It was a great experience for our new mua Tess to get to experience the craziness behind the scenes backstage. I was picked as one of the lead artists this year and also doing airbrushing for Thursday nights show. My favorite part was getting to work on the pro team for Michelle Lesniak's look. She was the winner of Project Runway Season 11. I was in love with her work throughout the season and so excited to meet her in person.

I have been a part of BFW since its very first year and so honored I get asked back every year to do makeup. It was fun even though we were in a tent for over 12 hours with no air in 85 degree weather. It was all worth it to see our work walk the runway at the end of the night. Until next year here are a few highlights from the day.

Sephora Haul "On The Fly"

Recently made a trip to Sephora to get some things for an upcoming trip to San Diego. I specifically went to get travel sizes of some of the products I use to take in my carry on. I had a blast going through all the cute little mini versions of some of my fave products. They have always had travel sizes of products but now it is very organized in one little place in the store. Although, I did have to go around the store to get a few of the Bumble and Bumble products. They have a section right by the check out called "On The Fly". I was told they specifically worked with the TSA to come up with travel sized products all 3.4 oz and under.  I wanted to lighten my load and take smaller versions with me so I didn't have to carry my whole bathroom. Especially since I am a hoarder of makeup and hair products.


What I bought:

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

- Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion for dry to very dry skin:  I am not much on clinique anymore but I have always loved this moisturizer for my skin type. It doesn't leave a greasy feel and make me feel nice and hydrated.

- Bumble and Bumble Texture Creame:  Gives hair that elusive, undone-yet-done quality, with a hint of grit, hold and a tousled, shine-free finish.

- Living Proof Flex styling hairspray:  hairspray designed to be workable, brushable, and touchable as you set, style, and finish damp or dry hair. I haven't used it yet but excited to try it.

- Bumble and Bumble Prep Spray: This nutrient-rich detangler reveals texture, enhances the performance of styling products and refreshes already styled hair. I LOVE this stuff. I use it right after I get out of the shower to help with tangles in my hair. It is also great to spray on day after hair to reactivate products and re-style hair.

- Evian Facial Spray: Facial Spray hydrates, tones, and refreshes normal, dry, oily and sensitive skin. French women, famous for their beauty savvy, have long depended on the special benefits of Evian Facial Spray as part of their daily skin care regime. This will be great by the pool to give me a cool spritz too.

- Stila MOST WANTED Eye liner duo: Draw the perfect line every time with Stila's bestselling Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black and Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Violet, a vibrant matte purple. These beloved cult classics deliver deeply pigmented color in waterproof formulas that stay in place until you say when. Can't wait to use these and the black liner is so cute and mini.

-Shiseido 50+ Ultimate Sun Protection Creme for face: This formula offers intensive complexion defense against UVA/UVB rays that cause sunburn, cell damage, dryness, roughness, and premature signs of aging such as fine lines. Don't face the day without the ultimate creamy, youth-guarding shield that works invisibly to deliver an optimal combination of sun protection, hydration, and smoothness. The texture is nonsticky and fast absorbing.

- Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee: This buildable, blendable blush hybrid provides the natural look of a cream blush with the long-lasting hydrating color of a gel stain. 14 hours of color and hydration. Infused with 50 percent-pure coconut water, it instantly hydrates while nourishing with the powerful benefits of vitamin E-rich argan oil. Like a refreshing sip of coconut water for your skin, this moisture-packed blush instantly drenches cheeks in a cool veil of color.

- Prada Candy Rollerball Parfum: Prada CANDY is instantly seductive—pure pleasure wrapped in impulsive charm. In an explosion of shocking pink and gold, Prada CANDY takes us on a walk on the wild side, showing us a new facet of Prada femininity where more is more and excess is everything. Magnified by white musks, noble benzoin comes together with a modern caramel accord to give the fragrance a truly unique signature. This is truly my absolute favorite scent. So excited they had this in the rollerball to take along with me.

- Minimergency Kit : This all-inclusive kit is designed to help women survive beauty, fashion, and personal care predicaments. Fix flyaways with a teeny-tiny hairspray. Stop runs in your hose with clear nail polish. Mend a fallen hem with double-sided tape. This kit does it all—and it comes in an adorable, portable pouch in a sassy leopard print. This is perfect because you never know what can happen and I will have everything I need in this tiny cute pouch. Perfect for on the go or brides too.

- Tangle Teezer Compact Styler:  Tangle Teezer is an innovative tool that painlessly and easily removes tangles and knots as it styles and dries hair. The uniquely designed teeth flex and flick as they glide through hair, minimizing breakage, splitting, and damage. Great for combing out my wet hair. My hair has recently gotten longer and it is great to have instead of causing unwanted breakage to the hair.

- Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings: Tried, tested, proven, and adored—these are the four products bloggers and vloggers simply can’t resist. Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer is infused with antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and signature bronzing pigments to create a unique matte bronzer that neutralizes red and evens skintone. Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer is a one-of-a-kind makeup primer scientifically formulated to glide on sheer, keeping powders, foundations and bronzers looking fresh and in place all-day while minimizing the appearance of pores and imperfections. In one easy coat, Better Than Sex Mascara’s carbon black, collagen-fueled formula creates full, defined lashes that are stretched to unbelievable lengths.

I will be posting soon about what I am taking with me in my TSA approved bag. Check back!!!!

The Art of Makeup

IMG -0001RT

"Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art." -Ralph Waldo Emerson I have always had a love for the beauty industry, and my passion led me to my dream job as a makeup artist. As I found myself devoting more and more of my energy into truly crafting my own style and standards, I was led to create my own products so I could have exactly what I needed to make the art of makeup my own.

I am so excited and proud to announce the launch of Rawwbeauty Cosmetics. I really put my head and my heart into this project, and I'm so happy to share it with everyone!

Visit my shop at www.rawwbeautycosmetics.com and see what I've been working on just for beauties like you!

All of my products are top of the line, hypoallergenic, and tailored to meet a wide variety of skin tones and palettes.

To celebrate I'm offering my brow/liner brush as my first giveaway!! This is one of my "stranded on a desert island" tools. Once you own one you will see why! It has a dual purpose as it can produce the sharp fine line of a pencil for eyeliner or the smooth even strokes of a brush for brows. Every makeup kit should have this brush!
