Fox News Rising! Fresh Start to 2k11!

Here is the segment that I did on Fox News Rising this morning! This is the 2nd time and I really enjoy my little 5 minutes of fame! :) Betchya didn't know I worked in News for 3 months of my life! lol! Anyhoo! Here are the tips in writing for "A fresh start to your Makeup Kit"...What to toss and What to be sure you have!

Expiration dates... beginning from the time you first open these products

Powders and shadows: 2 years
Cream shadows: 12 to 18 months
Foundation: 1 year 
Lipstick & lipliner: 1 year
Mascara & eyeliners: 3 months
Makeup brushes: Clean weekly ...depending upon use 
Makeup sponges: Replace weekly, or when sponge becomes soiled 

Best ways to tell when a product is old:

Smell your cosmetics...if they have an funny odor, they may contain bacteria and should be thrown out.
Always make sure that products are closed tight and stored out of sunlight, as this can destroy the preservatives.

If there are any changes in color and texture, Chuck it ASAP!

Must Haves for 2011:
A good moisturizer 
Cream or Stick Foundation
Blush and/or Cheek Stains
Lipstick or Stains

Invisible Soldier Collabo

Here are a few pics from the Invisible Soldier Look Book... I was brought on by Wardrobe Stylist Nikki Zalanka of Vain Magazine and God City Artist Marcus Kiser. Was actually shot this past summer by Kevin Womack (Find more of his work here>) and Myk Pate shot the series...Was definitely one of the coolest shoots I've been on! Everybody on the set was mad cool and knew how to play their part...and the energy was great! I even got an amazing piece of art as a thank you for participating. I look forward to working with all these folks again in the future! Check out more on Marcus and his work here >
You can find the whole Invisible Soldier album and more on our fan page!!! :) Become a fan today! 

Do guys even try anymore? Social Networking is too easy...

Is it just me? Or when did facebook and social networking become the way to some instant booty for the night? I am often amused at the braveness of men behind the comfort of a computer screen... I'm sure I am not the only female who gets the ever so often "Hey" or "You cute" on your instant messenger. Or the ever so annoying "poke" on facebook. Wtf does a "poke" mean anyway...and why do some people poke you if your not even facebook friends? 0_o
Now don't get me wrong...I don't blame a brotha for trying...but my point is after "Hey" Ima need you to have something to say!!! And "Was gud?" or "What up" are not quite conversation starters. It seems if you are actually would say "How are you today" , "What are you doing this weekend" or somethin! Most guys who have hit me up have nothing more to say after "hey" seriously...dead air! And if you ask them a question they give you some vague answer as if you are prying into their business! lol I'm thinking...dude! You hit me up, and clearly want to talk to me! Now you have nothing to say? You need to do a whole lot more than chat with me on facebook to get my attention! And even more to keep it! *snaps fingers*
Just because I added you as a friend does not mean that I liked you! Are dudes really that simple until you don't look at anything else about that person but their profile picture? I mean do you look at their relationship status? their occupation? kids? siblings? friends in common? Anything!? If could probly stop wasting a lot of people's time including your own. I personally have a business so I normally add just about anyone. But I've come to be a little more selective lately...because of this foolishness! I even changed my relationship status to married (and no I'm not married) ...just to try and eliminate the irritation.
Point blank... I should be able to take a cute picture, and make myself available to clients and potential clients on fb chat...if I freakin want to! And not have to worry about some lame dude...hittin me up and having nothing to say! Facebook can be great for meeting people, finding people and networking...but the fellas are getting a bit out of hand with this. And to whoever the females are that this works on...please stop!!! You're just making it worse for all of deserve more! ;) Smooches! ;-*
