Andro Look

This look seems very androgynous to me; the eyes are extremely heavy and intense, while the rest of the face is scultped and contoured, and the lips are just erased. I personally love this, it's one of my favorite looks I've done in weeks! I hope you enjoy it as well. This would be perfect for a New Years clubbing event, when you can get away with the heavy dramatic makeup without looking totally out of place.

Vancouver Event 2009

Thanks so much to all my guests for coming to the Vancouver Event 2009! It was so great meeting you all and I hope everyone had as wonderful a time as I did.

Some more pictures from the event! The location was at Earls Restaurant in Yaletown. Unfortunately some people had already left before we had a chance to take the group picture. The raffle was a huge success! I wish I could have gotten everyone a present but I hope the winners enjoyed their gifts.

Special thanks to Blo Dry Bar, Skoah Spa, and Beautymark for their contribution to my raffle!

Vancouver meetup: Dec 12

Please watch the above video if you plan to attend the Vancouver, Canada meet & greet event I am hosting! You will find all the important details of the event and how to get involved.

Date: Saturday, 12 December 2009
Time: 2pm - open ended
Location: A restaurant in Yaletown, downtown Vancouver, Canada (exact location will be given out by email)

Minors are welcome but please do not try to order alcoholic drinks! If you're 14 years or younger you must come with an older person or adult. There will be lots of great prizes (beauty products and beauty services) raffled off so bring some change to buy your raffle tickets. I am trying to organize some wonderful gifts for you all that will make it even more worth your while to come!

Following the meet-up at the restaurant where we will be having food & drinks (paid by yourself), we will be doing an optional shopping trip around downtown Vancouver and hit up Sephora, MAC, Sears makeup counters, whatever! It is a few blocks walking distance from the restaurant, so don't wear uncomfortable shoes you can't walk well in, and bring a warm coat, gloves, hat, etc - Vancouver has been freezing cold lately and the weather forecast for Saturday is not great.

How to RSVP and get yourself on the limited guestlist (max. 40 people)

Send an email to rsvp.julia [at] gmail dot com with your full name (first and last), your age, and a contact telephone number where you can be reached in case of emergency. (Will be kept confidential.) You can bring a friend, but make sure to also include their details. Please use this email to RSVP only! I'll be emailing you back with the details of the location. Once the 40 spaces are filled, I will be making a waiting list; you may be contacted last-minute if there has been a cancellation from someone. Please only RSVP if you definitely can come. As there is a guest list limit, I don't want to have no-shows and take away a spot from someone who really wanted to attend.

I look forward to seeing you there! If you can't attend the event, I will be filming the entire day and uploading it on my Youtube channel afterwards.

Looking forward to hanging out with you all! I think it will be so much fun! I am putting a lot of time into making this a special event for you all. :)
