Clumps heads back to NYC!

That’s right! 2 months ago I brought you the amazing-ness that was the Makeup Show NYC. This time around I plan on getting in a little shopping, being a tourist and linking up with my beauty bloggin’ sisters.

As a matter of fact, we’re having a party this Saturday! If you are a beauty or fashion blogger, we would love to see you there! Are you a Clumps of Mascara reader in the New York area and want to shoot the breeze with me and other lovely ladies, please come out!

You can view the e-vite and RSVP here:

Clumps of Mascara’s Three Random Bits


How beautiful is this photo? I took it a year or so ago when I was visiting my Little (Big Brothers Big Sisters, holla!) in Tampa, Florida. It looks like the bridge is just going and going and going.

Decided to try something different and share Three Random Tidbits with y’all.
Ready?

1) When Clumps of Mascara first started, I never did mascara reviews. I didn’t start doing them until Clumps turned a year old.

2) Clumps readers are insanely hilarious! No…..really. I had no idea that y’all were so funny. Check out the Beauty Bee-haviors: I Can’t Stand When _____ post.

3) I drink green smoothies every single day. I am obsessed with them. I was asked to do a post about how I make them. What do y’all think about that?

Now it’s your turn! Tell me any random three bits. It could be about anything. Feel like venting? Go ‘head and get you anonymity on. Just don’t insult me because….wowsers, I have had enough of that for the week. *wipes recently threaded brow* Don’t worry. I’ve got some thick skin.

Now shoot….what’s on your mind?

Calling all Central Florida Mocha Stylists!

Guess whaaaat?

I’ve partnered with AMBERmag.com and McDonald’s, in honor of McCafe, their new line of espresso-based coffees, to feature your Mocha Style Tips on my blog.

Tomorrow (that’s Thursday, May 28th) I will be at this McDonald’s:

9401 W. Colonial Drive
Ocoee, Florida 34761
5:30-7:30 p.m.

What do you have to do? Just show up! No….I’m serious. Just bring your fabulous self, find me, tell me your style tips and you will get a McDonald’s Arch Card.

….that means you will get a free meal on me!

Not in Orlando but have friends and family members that are? Tell them about it! I am crazy excited to be a part of this and would love to meet some Clumps readers that actually LIVE in Florida. There seems to be few. Email me at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com to let me know that you will attend or just show up!

Hope to see you there!

Oh…check out Amber Mag’s mocha stylistas in NYC!

The Makeup Show-Day 1 (mobile post)

Okay fam…keep in mind that I will do complete coverage of The Makeup Show NYC when I make it back to Florida. These are just teaser posts. If you have questions about anything in particular don’t hesitate to email me at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com. Responding to posts via mobile is crazy hard!!

If you follow me on Twitter you’ve probably seen some of these photos already.

Oh! Whoever guessed that the polish I am wearing in the previous NYC post was from OPI’s South Beach collection and called Done Out in Deco was absolutely right!

First up!

I absolutely love the idea of Mommy Makeup! Until I do a formal review of these products, you should check out their site at MommyMakeup.com.

What in the powdery colorful goodness are these? Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics pigments! You know you want one…. And yes! I got not one but TWO of their lip tars. Can’t wait to review them.

Crown brushes!! Amazing quality—insane price. No really….insane. As in good, I mean. Be on the look-out for a giveaway!

Blogger girls in the house! Yummy411 and Her Royal Poshness (who was visiting the states for her first time ever—-and alone!) and I took a few minutes to get cute for the cam!

It’s YouTube make-up guru Koren and Oscar-award winning make-up artist Eve Pearl! Both are extremely down to Earth. And yes I was begging Koren to jump on Twitter. Did you know he has launched a website? Enkoremakeuponline.com. Hotness!!

Whoa whoa….beautiful shades from Make Up For Ever. Sooo pigmented!

Tis it for now, friends. You can get more coverage of The Makeup Show NYC from me if you follow me on Twitter (@ClumpsOfMascara)

Anything you want me to check out? Let me know!!

Stay beautiful!

NYC Mobile Post

Hey family!

I’m just shootin’ you some quick photos of my time so far here in NYC. I so wish I could spead all of my photos out instead of ALL of them ending up at the top.

Ah well…

All pictures were taken with my Blackberry so if they look a little fuzzy….that’s why!

First photo is of New York City, of course! I was hangin’ out at a cafe off of 42nd and Lexington. Or something like that. Ha!

Next up is a darling little flower ring that I got from a wholesale shop for only $3. Actually…..I got A LOT of little goodies for only $2-$3. Blame those purchases on Miss. Yaya from I’ll Be My Own Judge; fellow beauty/fashion blogger.

My hair is LOVING Carol’s Daughter’s Hair Milk. I will do a formal review on this one but I just wanted to share with my family how much I love it. I am also supporting a mani I got done at Avanti Spa with Adina from KraseyBeauty.com. Nail polish fans…can you guess the color? Hint: it is a OPI color. And you thought it was Zoya’s Malia, uh?

Can you believe I only brought TWO palettes with me on this trip. What can I say? The NARS Bridal palette and Urban Decay (omg, what is it called again?) palette have everything I need! And as far as that Dove deodorant. Wow!! Stay tuned for a review and giveaway of that baby!

….and then of course, it’s me throwing up the deuces. Why do people do that? And why do you feel like you have to wear shades when you do it? Lol…craziness!

Today I will be at Saks off of 5th Avenue swooning over the work of celebrity make-up artist Pat McGrath. Right after is the Blogger Preview at The Makeup Show. And after that? Who knows? Sushi? Thai? Shopping? I’m up for anything!

I hope that you all are having a great weekend!!

Special love to my girl Tamar is has been holding down Clumps beautifully!

Stay beautiful,

Brittany

It won’t be routine, but it will be fun!

-Are you going to be in the NYC area around the same time that I will be? Heyyyy! Let’s meet up!

-Keep the emails a coming! My responses may be a little delayed but I will respond!

…..off I go, family.

Stay beautiful!
