Click the image to visit my page, I post all of my new work there :)!
Hello Beautiful Readers!
It’s been a while since I updated this page, but the past few months have been blessedly crazy and busy! I started a new job, moved out with my best friend, and I’ve been working so much! Doing makeup and hair are my #1 goal right now, so I am staying focused and giving it my all. Because I don’t have a whole lot of time to blog right now, I’ve been trying to update my Facebook page pretty often with pictures of my work. Please check it out and comment, I’d love to reconnect with all of you!
I hope all of you are doing well, I’m sending you all a big e-hug and hope to hear from you soon!
Hi My Lovelies!
Just wanted to let you know that I created a Facebook page for my makeup work if you’d rather keep up there. Feel free to Like and share with your friends :). Thanks!
Loves!! I’m so excited to share the first batch of my published work with you :)! Pages 4 and 38-40. That’s my sweet friend Autumn modeling, with photography by Michael and Tal B. Vincent. All great people to work with, omg I’m so excited!!
I cant believe I’ve been away for so long! I’ve been crazy busy, in the best way possible. I’m so thankful that I’ve been getting makeup work all over the place, and I’m actually waiting for three magazine spreads to hit the stands so I can show you my published work. I feel so very blessed and cant wait for even more work an opportunities to come up. I still have to fight back tears of happiness when I think about all of the amazing things I’ve been able to do and all the makeup jobs I have to look forward to! Here are a few snapshots of recent work:
The music video I worked on in January is up! Check it out :):

I’ll post the magazine pictures as soon as I get them! What have you all been up to?
I hope you all had a great weekend and that Monday took it easy on you. Here are some random recent pics that I couldn’t figure out where to post:

What have you all been up to?
Happy Monday! I’m so excited that this is a short work week, looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner at bffs house and sleeping in all 4 days of my weekend. I’m heading out to LA/Hollywood this weekend to pick up some things for my makeup kit as well, so I’m excited to share those with you :).
I was in Vegas for Halloween weekend with my girlfriends, and while walking around the forum shops, I found the Inglot store. After a quick happy dance and some excited squeals, I headed in and picked out some shadows in colors that I didn’t already have in my kit.
In natural light:
-Pearl 423- a shimmery deep brown with copper and purple tones depending on where the light hits.
-AMC Shine 09- a gold with a slightly peach/pink shimmer to it.
-Double Shimmer 504- beautiful teal/aquamarine blue. LOVE this one so much.
-Double Shimmer 483- a deep shimmery navy blue.
-Double Shimmer 481- my favorite of the bunch, this is a khaki green that I haven’t seen anywhere else. Creates a beautiful subtle smokey eye.
I’m officially Inglot crazy and cant wait to pick more up at the store in Newport Beach soon. The colors are intensely pigmented, blend like a dream, and last all day long. I picked up the pans for their Freedom System and they came out to $5 each :)–seriously, how could you say no?! I’d recommend these to the newbies and the serious makeup artist looking to build up an amazing shadow collection. Click here to visit their website.
Have you tried Inglot before?
I can finally tell you the exciting news! Today, I enrolled in a pro makeup artistry course that starts in a month. By December, I will be a certified makeup artist :). I hope I can take pics in class to post here every week. OMG, you guys have no idea how excited I am! I think this calls for celebratory drinks asap :D.
This is intended for follow bloggers and any lovlies that plan on creating a blog. I received a letter from the Domain Registry of America saying my domain (nessalovesmakeup.com) would be expiring soon and that I had to act right away and pay ridiculous fees to keep it. I’m suspicious of anyone asking for my money lol, so I did some research and this is a scam. Do not fall for the letters or emails from this company, just throw them out and save yourself any grief. It may seem obvious to some that this is a scam, but some newer bloggers may not realize it. Here’s one article that explained it quite well:
I hope this saved at least one of you any trouble!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and that summer has arrived where you live :).
I know I haven’t posted in a week, but I’ve been in kind of a clothing/makeup rut. It feels like I have nothing to wear, my makeup doesn’t look right, and I can’t seem to find anything when I go shopping. These ruts happen to me every once in a while, and they always suck lol. Do you ever go through this?
I’m going to be reading a lot of fashion/makeup magazines and blogs for inspiration, and I’ll be back to my normal self soon enough. For now, are there any looks that you’d like for me to try? Any celebrity makeup that you’d like for me to recreate? Send me your suggestions, I’d love to try them!
One bright spot in the past week has been the delivery of my new Zoya polishes. I’m crazy about this brand, and can’t wait to acquire more colors! Check out the little haul below:
Avril, Portial, Elodie, Breezi, and Kieko.
-Avril- light pink with just a tiny bit of mauve in it. It was almost opaque with two coats. Beautiful for every day, goes with everything.
-Portia- very light pink, leaning to white. It was opaque with two coats. I could see myself wearing this to a summer wedding :).
-Elodie- a lovely coral jelly. Formula was good, but needed three coats. I’ll be reaching for this color a lot this summer.
-Breezi- described on the Zoya site as a “soft, dusty, dirty medium cerulean blue with an opaque cream finish”. Formula was amazing on this one, and completely opaque with two coats. Love this blue, I don’t have anything else like it.
-Kieko- a red toned purple cream, completely opaque with two coats. This is sooo fun, I can’t wait to wear it on my toes :D.
Did you order any polishes from Zoya during their free shipping weekend?
