Fridays with Felicia: An intimate look behind the curtain as I share my favorite style/ beauty discoveries and ThisThatBeauty shenanigans from previous week.

*******************

Lets kick off “Fridays with Felicia” with a good old fashioned giveaway. A few days ago I hopped up on my soap box and lectured on the goodness of sunscreen. So it is only fitting that I partner with Jane Iredale and offer you a chance to win Jane Iredale Lip Drink SPF 15.

With products like Lip Drink, Powder-Me SPF, Amazing Base, Dream Tint and PurePressed Powder, Jane Iredale makes sun protection simple and convenient. And kudos to the aforementioned products for earning the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Approval.

Winning Lip Drink is easy:

  • You must be a follower of @ThisThatBeauty on Twitter
  • You must be a US resident
  • One entry per household
  • Leave a comment that lists your twitter handle and let me know your favorite SPF product
  • You have until June 24 to enter contest. Winner will be announced June 25.

I recently had the pleasure of attending the Fashion on Fulton Gala and Charity Event benefiting Brooklyn Community Housing and Services. The event was produced by the homey The Makeup Girl/ Lianne Farbes. Brooklyn Community Housing and Services is a 31-year old non-profit agency. Each year the organization provides housing for 700 formerly homeless men, women, and children. The event was held at Skylight One Hanson, a stunning architectural venue with 63-foot ceilings, 40-foot windows, and  marble decor….the perfect back drop for the evening!

I love that I regularly get to switch hats from makeup artist to journalist…this keeps things fresh and sexy. For Fashion on Fulton I go got wear my journalist hat and cover the backstage beauty. Lead Artist Victoria Stiles used Cover Girl products to create a look that is described as “dramatic black winged liner, lashes, and nude lips”.

You can always count on ThisThatBeauty for the exclusive deets. Here is the full product rundown:

Eyes:

  • CoverGirl Perfect Blend Eyeliner in Black smudged along the top and bottom lashes
  • CoverGirl Line Exact Defining Eyeliner in Black precisely applied to the top lid and swept outward
  • Cover Girl Exact Eyelights Mascara in Black Pearl applied in multiple coats on top and bottom lashes

Lips:

  • CoverGirl Continuous Color Lipstick in Sugar Almond
  • CoverGirl Wetslicks Lipgloss in Honey Talks

While at Fashion On Fulton I met Jenn Fournier of Project Jenny, a blog about food, fashion, travel and …just read her blog!

During the week I was on set with the masterful Danessa Myricks. She contours a face like nobody’s business! Check out her work below…then go cop her contour video, The Art of Contouring. Her techniques are life changing. #truestory

For my manicure du jour, I was in the mood for a rich pastel and decided to go with  OPI A Grape Fit. We like?

If you find yourself in the mood for rich pastels, may I also suggest the yumminess that is essence cosmetics’ essence surfer babe nail polish collection? These new bright and colorful nail polishes create a relaxed summer style. Starting in July, the Surfer Babe collection will be available through the remainder of the summer at Ulta stores. Check  Ulta.com for locations. Oh, and did I mention the price tag?…$1.99! Such a no-brainer – buy them all!

Happy Friday boo boos :)

Hola Beautiful —

I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine’s Day.  Mine was perfectly swell and filled with lots of fun happenings….Fashion Week coverage, nice dinner, and cocktails with some of the baddest Beauty Bloggers known to wo-man.  
I was particularly pleased as punch (say that three times fast) to meet my Beauty Blog first love, Lianne Farbes a.k.a. TheMakeupGirl. Lianne’s blog is the very first beauty blog I ever read.  And I’ll share a closely guarded secret with you….

TheMakeupGirl actually inspired me to start ThisThatBeauty after I was not chosen to be a guest blogger on her site.  

After being rejected, a good friend (Hi Shana!) encouraged me to see the rejection as an opportunity to start my own beauty blog. So I picked myself up, wiped away my runny mascara, touched up my foundation…and the rest is her-story :)
I shared this story with Lianne and we both had a hearty laugh!  So ya see, tis true what “they” say about one door closing and another one opening.  Keep knocking…a door’s bound to open!
While it was a great honor to finally meet Lianne, it was also a great pleasure because she was exactly as I’d hoped – an all around class act and a whole lotta fun!  Lianne and I chatted over cocktails and had a really nice time. I’m pretty much a newbie to our Total Beauty Blog Network so I really appreciated Lianne’s warm welcome and kind words of encouragement and advice.  
Here I am below with the very lovely Lianne. Good times!
