Jumping the Broom and Jones Magazine

I had the pleasure of a much needed girl's night out and a chick flick, when I went to see "Jumping the Broom" courtesy of Jones Magazine last week! The movie was absolutely fantastic! And the cocktails after didn't hurt either! ;)
The movie was written by TD Jakes, with characters like Angela Bassett, Paula Patton, Pooch Hall and that fine ass Lil Romeo! (who made me question the "cougar" thing quite a bit throughout the movie, lol) It touched on so many issues that everybody can relate to...love, deceit, lust, religion, family. It truly had all the elements! And it wasn't corny or over the top...I thought they did an awesome job of keepin it real! There really isn't anything bad I can say about the movie...guys can watch it without questioning their manhood, women will love every minute! Their wasn't a lot of cursing or vulgarity and there's lots of eye candy! lol Hair and makeup were on point too! Well written, directed and executed...and everyone played their part to a T!!! 
Totally worth the money! I vote 2 thumbs up! I was straight bein the chick in the theater yellin at the screen! lmao!( Public apology to all those around me! lol)  So I won't tell anymore...you've got to go see it! Leave a comment after you do! Kisses! ;-*

PS! Many thanks to Loany G Photography  and Meet The Fresh for the awesome pics! :)

Recap of Une Belle Femme...

Une Belle Femme | StyleMayvin.com | Shot by ABlackTV from ABlackTV on Vimeo.

Check out the video from our Beauty Event...Une Belle Femme! The premise behind it is that women read blogs and reviews all of the time on the latest and hottest products...we wanted to give women a chance to experience them! What makes this event so special, is that these brands come from a variety of places...from local to international! Rain Cosmetics (official beauty sponsor of Miss USA), Kahina (skin care line from Morocco), and Impact Cosmetics by Stanley Owings are just a few of the brands that participated.  

                                                                                                              The entry fee to the event was a wardrobe donation to Dress for Success, and Candice Johnson of CJ Wax Studio was our esthetician on site, answering questions and helping with demos! It really was a lovely time! The next one is already in the works! Many thanks to all of the brands who participated, Erin Hubbs for the amazing photography and www.ablacktv.com for the fabulous video!!! And last but not least Apostrophe Lounge, for hosting the event! Can't wait to do it again! Any brands wanting women in our market to experience your product, please contact me at flawlessmakeupart@gmail.com, to find out when the next event is scheduled!

Summer Makeup...How to keep it fresh!

Summer is close by! And the heat is rising, and if your not educated about it...your makeup will be melting! I have a few tips to share about what to do in the Summer months when its comes to makeup.

Tinted Moisturizers are great in warmer climates! They are sheer and light, and give just a little color to even out the skin tone. You can even make one, by combining your favorite moisturizer and a little liquid foundation. Lots of product lines have them these days, so you can find the just about anywhere. Make sure yours has SPF! ;)

Pro Longwear Foundation by MAC Cosmetics is a great product! Guaranteed 15 hours of wear! Helps control oil throughout the day, and is great in any weather. This product is great for brides too! It can be an investment for some, but well worth it!

Fix + and Evian Spray... these are great to start and finish makeup! Give the skin a quick spritz before your makeup, to give the skin a quick drink of moisture and add those nutrients like cucumber extract and green tea, which calm the skin. Then after you makeup is completely done, spritz all over to set the makeup and take away a heavy powdered look. *You can also put them in the fridge and use them as a quick refreshment on hot days at the beach or pool*

Loose Powder... an oldie but goodie! This is a key step that many women miss! And will make a huge difference in the longevity of your makeup. After makeup is completely done, take a big fluffy brush and encase the full face with a light layer of loose powder. (I prefer those with a little color verses translucent, so you don't get an ashy cast or white splotches that only show up in pictures). This will keep the makeup from breaking down as quickly throughout the day. Use it once, and leave it at home...it can get messy carrying it around in your makeup bag.

Pressed Powder...is where your purse comes in! This is what you keep with you to touch up during the day. Blot the t-zone when your feeling a shine coming on. And this will help to refresh the makeup and keep it in tact, compared to taking a tissue and taking more product off of your face.

All of these products and tips will help keep your fun summer colors and bronzed beautiful summer makeup looking so fresh and so clean!!! ;) More tips coming soon! Feel free to comment and tell me what u wana hear next! Until then...kisses!;-*
