Mirabella & Renee Strauss Beauty Event at the London Hotel

About 2 weeks ago I attended an awesome Bridal Beauty Event with some other Makeup Artist & Beauty Bloggers at the London Hotel.
The event started in The Gordon Ramsey Restaurant where we had the Breakfast Buffet and met the creator of Mirabella John Maly & Renee Strauss (Who were both super sweet and friendly!)

Then after breakfast we went to another area of the hotel for a Beautiful Bridal Fashion Show;


Brazen Beauty

City Chic


Day Dreamer
Wedding gowns from Renee Strauss and all the Makeup looks were doing with Mirabella Products!

After the event we mingled outside, tried out the products, sipped cocktails and took home some amazing goodie bags!! I love the Mirabella products and I love that they are Paraben & Cruelty free and come is ready made sets with everything you need to achieve the full look. I choose the Day Dreamer set because that was my favorite look from the Fashion Show.

Nikki West Fashion Show~ Wet n Wild Pasadena

On August 1st in Pasadena I was excited to be one of the Makeup Artists along side Wet n Wild Makeup Artist Amy Rittiner for the Nikki West fashion show that was sponsored by Wet n Wild cosmetics.

Amy designed a Beautiful Makeup look for the models with a winged liner with a hint of electric blue, pink cheeks and a stunning nude glossy lip, which we did on all the models.

Laws of Supreme Influence Workshop

Yesterday was an amazing amazing and inspiring day!!! I had the best time at Niurka's Laws of Supreme Influence Workshop! It was seriously priceless, a huge investment in my self improvement and life!

Supreme Influence is the power to consciously create your world through your thoughts, focus, and communication. Supreme is the authentic You. Influence is the power to focus your language to elegantly manifest your vision. “In-fluence” implies “inward fluency.” You have real influence when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

In this one-day intensive course, here are just some of the things that Niurka covered:

Create the conditions for success in advance - even before you walk in the door.
Instantly step into resourceful states - like confidence, enthusiasm or centeredness - no matter what the circumstance, so you authentically emanate authority and trust, and others see, hear, feel and understand your commitment to their cause.
Ask direct and purposeful questions that allow you to clearly understand and address your client's/team/partners needs and desires - you will eliminate misunderstandings and create clear communication.
Develop the keen awareness of subtle shifts in another's verbal and nonverbal communication - so you know when and how to purposefully push boundaries in your communication, gracefully create tension and release, and elegantly inspire your client/team/partners to say YES and take action now.
Navigate high-level negotiations to successful outcomes - you'll meet everyone's needs and ensure that each person leaves empowered.
Align your thoughts, words and actions with your vision and true purpose.
And so much more...

Beautiful Poetic words

"Staring into your eyes, I feel your Truth burn through me, your image on the screen more alive than anything I have encountered before. Surprised. My breath catches. The world stops. Time Stops. Your gaze fills my whole knowing. Some part of me answers your wordless call. I don’t know who or what you are, but I know you"
