good things utah segment: how to wear pink eyeshadow

today's segment was a blasty!! 
thanks to mahh beautiful models paige and bailey and to our beautiful hostess, nicea degering.
you can view the full segment
 here

*recap and review*
don't forget to enter the drawing:)

pink eyeshadow can be tricky. 
the ahhsome news is that any eye color can rock pink eyeshadow; you just have to find the shades that work with your eyes, skin and hair. 
the way to do that is-- yup, you guessed it--experiment with it..
find a pink that works for you, one that will flatter your eyes and not make them look red. 
this can happen if pink shadow is applied too close to your lower waterline, which is the part of your eye that gets inflamed when you're sick. it can create the illusion of making you look tired or that you have really bad seasonal allergies or worse, pinkeye and that's not a good look on anyone. to prevent this make sure to use another color to act as a barrier between your waterline and your pink shadow. you can control the effect your barrier color has, making your pink shadow soft and whimsy to more dramatic and chic. 


on myself i used the flamingo trio from ns minerals
i love this trio because it contains light, medium and dark shades of pink.
make sure to apply an eye shadow primer before use of shadows to help the shadow stay all day.


i love ns minerals because their makeup is all natural and designed to protect and enhance all skin types.
annnd they have amazing pigments that can be used for eyes, lips, hair, cheeks and nails. so ahhsome!

on my models

on paige 
i used the medium metallic pink from the flamingo trio paired with the honey suckle trio in soft bronzes as my barrier color.


on hailey
 i used the soft pink color from the flamingo trio paired with velvet nightlife as her barrier color. 
i also added black eyeliner to the top lash line.

fox13 live, beauty on a budget: "pore"fect pores


waiting behind scenes with my cute model and fellow team heugly teammate, dallas

this one's for you coach!! flex faces at fox. lol 

 as always, thank you fox13!!
thank you to our gorgeous hostess with the mostess nineveh dinha and my beautiful model dallas rae


special thanks to jmr fashion place mall for styling my hot model!!


 the products
talking pores:
everyone has pores, some larger some smaller, but we all have hair follicles and that's what pores are. the only place we don't have hair follicles are on our palms and on the soles of our feet. genetics play into the size of your pores, but that doesn't mean you can't take steps to make sure you're not doing something to make them appear larger than they have to.

cleanser:
pick one with salicylic acid, which will help reduce the dead skin cells which can get stuck to your pores. it will also help reduce the oil on your skin, which can make your pores appear larger.

exfoliate using a sonic cleansing system:
using a sonic cleansing system paired with your cleanser, can clean your face 10x better than using just your hands and cleanser. 
exfoliating on a regular basis will definitely give the appearance of shrinking pores. 
if you are routinely getting the dead skin cells, which can get stuck in your pores off of your skin, your pores will avoid getting stretched out daily.

pore refining toner:
after you cleanse and exfoliate use a toner with alpha and beta hydroxy.
alpha and beta hydroxy shrinks those large pores, reveling smooth and even skin tone.

moisturizer:
i love this creme, it is suitable for all skin tones. 
it refines and protects skin, it is non-greasy and visibly reduces pores and fine lines.
most importantly it targets pores and tightens them.

primer:
one of the most important steps before your foundation.
do you ever notice your foundation getting clogged in your pores? many times your pores look larger after you put on your foundation, which is the exact opposite of what you want it to do. a primer sits at the surface of your skin and creates a sort of barrier between your skin and your makeup. 
it will not get stuck in pores and will overall improve the appearance of your skin.
another awesome one is
