Mini Makeover With CoverGirl & Sam Fine in NOLA


On our #NOLAcrawl, as soon as I got in town I stopped by the COVERGIRL suite to get a mini-makeover with celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine!! I have met him a couple of times and he is so amazing to be around. He had us laughing all while giving us some great tips on makeup! He is a Beauty Ambassador for COVERGIRL!

I am always very agreeable when it comes to makeup artists looks. I would rather them do their thing since that is their expertise. We ended up deciding on a bold lip for me.

He started with EYES. He said even when doing a bold lip, make sure you don’t neglect the rest of your face. A simple winged liner is perfect. He used the Bombshell Intensity Liner  on me. (I have this at home so I can wait to recreate it!

So my issue is I can never do the wing right, so he gave me some good tips.

  • Don’t do the entire line at once
  • Don’t stop the line too early ( I do this all the time 🙁  )
  • For the wing, use your finger on the outside and lift UP so the line naturally goes slightly up.  (smh, I have pulling my eye out straight versus up which is why I can NEVER get the winged liner right.(

Those were super helpful for me!

Now it’s time for the bold lips. He picked out COVERGIRL’s FLAME (found here) for me which is a reddish-pink!

He said if I use a lip brush, I don’t necessarily have to use a liner. But if you have non-steady hands, it’s probably not a good idea.

Sidenote: I have been wearing this lip color ALOT recently since he picked it out for me lol

At the end , he added some bronzer (Queen Collection Bronzer) and I was good to go!!DSC_0402

Finished look! Exactly like I like. Not alot of makeup, but a great look!


Thanks so much to the COVERGIRL team and Sam Fine!!
