The long awaited post about THE MAKEUP SHOW !

I know, I know,..... it's been forever since my last post, and I could make excuses and say " a cross country move, a breakup, another move, (not necessarily in that order)...sometimes life gets in the way".....
but truth be told, I got sooooo much loot at the makeup show that I wanted to be able to actually use it, and not just on myself, but on my clients, so that when I spoke to you about it, I'd actually have something to say.

So without further adieu, I give you ..... The Makeup Show LA Bloggger Bag

There was so much in this "goodie bag" that I almost don't know where to start.
 I have a few favorites that I could go on and on about so I'll leave those for last. I will say this, there are some things that I selfishly will keep in my own makeup bag that my pro-kit will never know about!!!

About Dyana


My name is Dyana Aives, and I'm a Celebrity Makeup Artist, turned content creator and blogger. I come from a family of beauty professionals,  so I've been doing hair and makeup for as long as I can remember. 
I was the little girl doing "makeovers" at the slumber parties, that eventually grew up to paint the faces of the NY fashion scene. After 15 years in fashion, I decided to trade in the Prada heels, for a pair of Converse and a walkie-talkie and made the move to film and television. 
 I've had my brushes on stars such as Adriana Lima, Olivia Palermo, Padma Lakshmi, Parker Posey, Amy Schumer, to Russell Crowe, and even the Backstreet Boys.
I've watched my makeup walk the runways of designers, Thierry Mugler, Monique Lhuillier, and Betsey Johnson, and, I'm proud to call Coca-Cola, Nintendo, Playboy, Vanity Fair, and Sony Ericsson, some of my clients. 
My work can be seen on such networks as MTV, VH1, Bravo and TLC Network, where 
I had a brief stint as the On Camera Beauty Expert for a makeover show, called CoverShot, until the show ended.
I've seen this industry change so much over the last 20 years, that it seems only natural I'd feel the need to evolve as well. Blogging organically seemed like the next step, the next fold in the fabric. (is that even an expression?) I could take my years of experience, and product knowledge, and all my crazy stories and blurt it all out on the pages in front of me.
 And just hope that you'll keep reading....
I have no idea where this road will lead me, but I'm excited to find out, and It means the world to me to have you along on this journey with me!

I hope you'll subscribe and stick around a bit?

My 4 favorite products and the cheat sheet to the ZenMed Giveaway.

This is my quick introduction to the ZenMed Skincare Collection and Giveaway, and my top four products.
 Because that's how many you will get, if you win my Giveaway!
(Which let me tell ya, it's not  easy to narrow down.)

So I'm here to help you "navigate" your way  a little.  in other words, a Cheat Sheet.  The more I use this the more I fall in love with it!  I want to order their HD Powder by the trunk full! It is so fine milled that it literally makes me look photo shopped.  oh, and i had a really embarrassing realization...

Turns out I really dig BB cream now. I'm almost embarrassed to say this because I spent so many years thinking it was just a so so tinted moisturizer. Or maybe it's just this Complexion Perfection, but this is kind of the bomb! I have seriously been wearing this every day and i swear my skin looks younger and lighter without all that heavy foundation. (not that mine was ever "heavy" errrherm. !. ) but it's just nice…

This is what Natural feels like

A sneak peek for what's coming up.....
