Luxury, quality and easy to use….here are some products I'm giving “the green light” because I really do love and use them! And you guys know… if I’m sharing it, it’s cool and it works! Read on to see what I’m diggin’!
Mallybeauty.com / Evercolor Shadow Stick
If you’ve never heard of Mally Roncal or her products, thank me later. You’ve definitely seen her work on top celebs, so she knows what really works. I love so much of her stuff, but today let me share one of my tip- top, super faves: The ever color shadow sticks are amazing! They come in colors that work for everyone and they are long wearing. Once you glide the stick over your eye, pow! Great color that’s not moving til you say so! If you are lucky enough to catch them on sale (try QVC) her deals can’t be beat! $25.00
Purminerals.com / Pur Intensity Gel Liner
I’m picky about my liner. I love super black, intense liner, so of course I named this! Not really, but the name fits perfectly. This liner is so easy to use I recommend it to many clients and friends, and they love me for it. I must credit my friend Julie at Pur Minerals who told me about fellow makeup maven Jackie Gomez. I heard her raving about the liner, tried it, and haven’t stopped using it!
Want a great winged out liner, get the black, feeling fun, go for plum quartz! $17.00
Beautylish.com / Charlotte Tilbury Collection
This site is a mecca for pro artists, and now, even more, I'll be flocking there to get something I’ve been anticipating for months...(drum roll)… Charlotte Tilbury! There’s something about a line created by a creative artist like Charlotte that you don’t find in others. The quality is superb, and the packaging is luxurious. The Luxury Palettes include 4 great colors of shadow and the color combos are rockin’!
Next, the Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Here’s how you get that sculpted cheek, highlighted, glowing effect you see on the red carpet. It’s not often I find bronzers that work for eveyone, but this golden based-beauty will give anyone a glow, so glow ahead and get it! $52.00, $65.00
Nyssa Green / The Green Room Agency
On most mornings, I’m awake at 3am. I’m not an insomniac... my day actually starts at 3am. My company, The Green Room Agency handles hair and makeup for 11Alive, the Atlanta NBC affiliate.
First comment I usually get is “Wow, you must be a morning person!”
Ha! No way, not at all, ask my Mom about my morning struggles in high school! I am however, a happy makeup artist whenever I can do it, no matter the hour. The show airs live from 5am-7am, so in the span of about an hour and 45 minutes, the entire morning team must be ready! That’s 6-8 people, depending on the day! Over the next few weeks, I’ll take you exclusively behind the scenes and show you how it all gets done! Here’s a look at the action from this morning, which was extra special because Judge Hatchett was a guest......

Fast & Fabulous
Here's a gorgeous before & after, done in 35 minutes! This is a simple look that started with shaping the brows. There are only 2 colors on the eyes, that's right, just 2: a gold/beige highlight nude at the brow bone, and a dark navy on the lid. Black liner on the top and bottom, and an amazing pair of mink lashes. I am a blush lover (everyone should be wearing it!) so I doubled up with blush and bronzer... love it! With such a great eye, a nude lip was the perfect finish. Quick, simple, and fabulous!
