IMATS 2011, 2011 BET Awards AND Other News (Picture Heavy)

Hey ALL!!!

I've missed you all a great deal. I'm back! For real this time.....:)

So....I went to IMATS in Pasadena on Sat, 6/25/11. I had a BALL & spent WAYYYYY to much money!
I met up with a Beautiful young lady named Nickie (pictured below) I met in a Facebook makeup chat & hung out with her for the day. I also met a few youtube "gurus" I watch & bloggers whose blogs I LOVE!! I took a few pictures.....

Hereeeeeee we go.....
MAC lipstick in Morange,  MAC Studio Finish Concealer,  Revlon Colorstay 400 foundation,  Maybelline Fit me Powder,  MAC Devil blush, Urban Decay 24/7 liner in zero. No eyeshadow. 
My look on my way there.
While I was there, I allowed someone from CoverFX to give me a 'makeover'! She felt I didn't need to be contoured & reapplied my makeup to tone me down. Hey, what did I have to lose? `\(^-^)/` She did a great job! 

Nickie & I.  I love love love her!! We'll be Sistas 4 life!
