The Makeup Show Orlando 2014

by Norelis Ocasio in


Hello Lovelies!!

I had the opportunity this past weekend to attend The Makeup Show Orlando. I was so excited for the opportunity, and was beyond excited to be there with my fellow bloggers, The Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida. This was my first time attending a Makeup Show of any kind. So it was all a new experience for me. Everyone was so nice and I got to meet a ton of awesome people and many amazing makeup brands.

Every corner you looked there was something happening. Someone getting their makeup done, body painting, demos, rows and rows of makeup brushes, lipsticks galore. To put it simply it was makeup heaven! I couldn't get enough, my eyes had so much to look at, so many people to talk to.

I will be reviewing all the products I received and purchased at the show during the next couple of weeks. But I just wanted to share some images I captured while walking around. So there will be tons more coming soon from The Makeup Show Orland. Can't wait for the next Orlando show which will be in January 2016. But I hope to be able to attend the May show which is NYC during the month of May.

What do you think?!?? Isn't it makeup heaven?! Ahhh!!

The Beauty Buffs Metallics

by Norelis Ocasio


Hello Lovelies!!!

The Beauty Buffs week is here. This weeks theme is Metallic.

I love mixing metallic with cremes for my manis, they work so well together. In this mani I am using OPI Christmas Gone Plaid, a gorgeous hunter green creme. For my metallic I used Unfrost my Heart, silver metallic. I used a small nail art brush to add the metallic design to the nail. 

Love using metallics! Hope you do as well. Make sure to check out all the other lovely ladies participating by clicking here.

Christmas Cookie, Glam Glitter, and Snowed In.  I decided to layer all 3 of them over Salon Perfect Oil Slick. I placed Glam Glitter at the base of the nail, then placed the round glitters from Christmas Cookie on each nail. Then on the tip of the nail I applied Snowed In. Looks like an awesome Christmas glitter bomb!!!
