I’m 45. I wait until this late stage of the game to learn how to beat my face.
That’s right. While I do love all things beauty, I’ve never really been inclined to wear much makeup. It just seemed too complicated.
But, I really love a well beaten face (OK I should stop saying it that way). I love a flawless looking face so I decided to up my makeup game and learn some actual skills to get the job done.
This past Sunday, I went to the #NYCFlawlessFace event where professional makeup artist NozzieByNicole, demonstrated how to create every day flawless face.
Much of what Nicole shared I learned from various other sources but it was good to see it demonstrated live. She made it seem so easy too!
There was about 30 ladies in attendance (a nice intimate group) and we each had time to ask Nicole some of our makeup (and skin care) questions.
While I wish the event was a little longer and there was a little more hands on “training,” I think I picked up enough to create my own every day flawless face.
While I’ve gotten much better, I still need to work on my blending! Overall though, I didn’t do too bad of a job. I received numerous compliments (They didn’t look up close lol).
Now, don’t let me neglect to mention that this event was coordinated and hosted by CurlsandMo. She’s such a down to earth sister and she also puts on a number of natural hair events (I’m looking forward to attending some of those).

Ugh, being next to her reminds me of how much weight I still need to lose! And, that’s my Weight Watchers Active Link sticking out of my shirt LOL!
Mo, short for Monet, is also a beauty blogger and you can find her blog here.
Before I go, check out all the swag received at the event:
You know I was thrilled to get a sampling of Shea Moisture’s new makeup line. I received a blush and can’t wait to check out some of the other products in the makeup line but until then I’ll be scooping up some of my other favorite Shea Moisture products now that I have this book load of coupons!
In addition to the Shea Moisture, I also received a Green Tea Facial Wash from Gaisie Body Essentials (stay tuned for a review of this), tons of cosmetics/brushes from ELF Cosmetics and I won the raffle which was a lip scrub and lip balm from SDotBeauty.
I really wanted that scrub and here’s why:
See how my crusty lips were transformed? LOL chile, there’s no shame in my game. I think we’ve all been there. Just take care of your situation when it arises
