To celebrate, the fam is going to Lake Havasu city where a well known fireworks manufacture tests it's products and technicians with a massive show over the lake!  Stay tuned for photos from that!

Now, every party needs a great smokey eye. Or in my world, every day. I swear, I wear two looks on a daily basis: either the daytime smokey eye with cool toned pink lips or bronzer/mascara/pink lips.

Get ready to meet the new essence cosmetics 2016 spring/summer color story!

Curious about the photo? Well, normally I do everything in the studio, though the weather has been crazy amazing. Weird hot for being February, but nonetheless I love a cool sunny day, 78 degrees. It's amazing here in Arizona right now. This weather does bring the challenge of the extended warm days can wake up the snakes. Uh oh. Ok, back to makeup.

So special thanks go out to essence cosmetics for sharing a bevy of samples from their spring/summer 2016 color story. I've got a couple of different "looks' video ideas ready for these as well as the possibility of taking these to Atlanta, that is if they make the cut for the packing in my wee beauty vanity! Don't get the joke? Then reference this video.

Now let's see these products and the "weekend edition" birthday look video!
