Amazing Times at The Make Up Show Orlando #TMSOrlando

Hi guys,

  As many of you know, I'm blogging out of my parental units house and have very little material to work with. Sad Panda... Anyways.. I did want to share with you some of the amazing artistry and random good time photos from The Makeup Show in Orlando. One of my favorite parts of the trade shows is seeing the artistry all around. Seeing normal gals transformed into incredible creatures by uber talented makeup artists... So here are some of my fave pics from TMS Orlando
 The Makeup Forever Academy ALWAYS blows me away with their creations. They literally take ALL day to complete, and are always AMAZING.

 DAT SPARKLE!! This was my fave "creature" out of the whole show.
 For more awesomeness just keep on reading ♥.

That Time LTHP Met Sutan Amrull (aka Raja Gemini) at #TMSOrlando!!

Random post time!

  Last weekend I got to attend The Makeup Show in Orlando. That is where one of my dreams came true. I got to "meet" Sutan Amrull, of ANTM and RuPaul's Drag Race fame. He might be better known to some of you as the amazing Raja Gemini, winner of Season Three of RPDR. I got to watch this man in action and it was incredible. I also got to turn into a bumbling idiot in front of him, but who cares?!! I actually met one of my idols. I got to watch him work and the entire thing was just incredible.

Sutan and James Vincent go way back to working together at the first M.A.C counter. It was really surreal to have exposure to such incredible talent in one place.

Cult Nails Mish-Mash Nail Art for @TheMakeupShow #TMSOrlando

(**Press Samples**)
Good afternoon my loves!! 

  Today I feel slightly hungover. No, I was not out drinking last night. I don't drink, ever (more like can't)... Anywho, I was at The Makeup Show in Orlando all weekend long and it was a beauty high for the ages. If you follow me on Instagram(@L_T_H_P) you may have gotten a glimpse of the madness that was this amazing show. I will be doing a few posts dedicated to the show. There was a lot of amazing things going on, and I really want to share some of my experiences with you guys. 
 Since Cult Nails had a booth at the show I decided to do a mani that mish-mashed a ton of Cult Nails shade into one amazing manicure. I wanted to represent for Cult Nails, not only because I consider Maria a friend, but because they are a brand that calls Florida home and I think that is pretty neat. Cult Nails also produces an amazing product, they never disappoint, and they always think outside of the box in their approach to seasonal collections. For me, they are a breath of fresh- air with every new collection because all of their color are always so different from everything else that is on the market at the time. SO, yeah.. I had to pimp some Cult Nails, and this is what I did :D. This look features shades from the Dance All Night, Road Trip and All Access Collections.

I will have reviews of Road Trip and All Access up very soon! I think it would be easier to break down this look by fingernail so.. let's do this!!
-Thumb and Pinky Nails: Feedback over Dance All Night over Mayhem over Wack Slacks. This was also done on my Pinky nails and you can see just how beautiful this layering turned out. They looked like some kind of jewel. 
-Index Nail: Two Timer over All Out over Grunge. This layering created one of the coolest and most unique shades I've ever rocked! Maria didn't believe me when I told her it was all Cult Nails heehee. In the photo above I am holding All Out. You need this polish. I also did this same layering on my Ring fingernail. 
-Middle Nail: Walk of Shame over Center of Attention over Be Loco. OMG, OMG, OMG. Ok, yes, so I LOVE this. I wish I had taken a macro of this nail because it was seriously so pretty and so girly and just SPARKLY!
 For the stamped details I used Bundle Monster plate BM201 for the zig- zag pattern. For the geometric pattern I used Cheeky Plate CH13. I used Konad Black special polish for the stamps. I finished my whole look off with a coat of Wicked Fast, except for the stamped nails for which I used Seche Vite to avoid smudging the stamped designs.
 During the show I had actually accented my nails with some Nail Veils by Chronicle Stones, but I didn't manage to snap a good pic of that. So here is an "ok cell" pic. I do want to go over the Nail Veils soon. I just adore these pieces. They are so edgy and different. 
 So here is a crappy cell pic of these awesome pieces. I will have an actual post soon! Oh and I ended up accenting my index with moons in You're my Dandylion and Inglot glitter stripes. I already had quite a bit of shrinkage going on at this point ahaha. 
 You can find out more about Nail Veils by visiting their site http://nailveils.com/. The pinkie piece with the dangle is one of my faves. It makes me feel very "old school glam". Or maybe like something Effie Trinket would wear. The piece on my middle finger can be customized by adding gems to the centers of the flowers. Su, the creator can make them with genuine gemstones or you can get them blank so you can use your own stones. These, semi-precious metal pieces are re-usable which would allow you to change the gems in the Flower veil piece. If you follow celeb nail artist Pattie Yankee, she is a huge fan of Nail Veils, and even had her own custom line created for NYFW this year. 

 Below are pics of my base colors which I will be reviewing soon they are Grunge, Be Loco and Wack Slacks. It is always so much fun for me to see the transformation of my nails from canvases to completed look.

 Oh and for fun here is a sneak of the awesomeness that went down at The Makeup Show Orlando. This model was painted by the artists of the Makeup For Ever Academy. I always look forward to their booth because their demos are surreal, and their creature concepts are always beautiful and beautifully executed. This model was working the heck out of this look!! She was sparkling from head to toe.
 My outfit, which pales in comparison to the beauty standing next to me, is all Black Milk Clothing. I wore The Awesome Suit as my top sine I wanted to show off my back tattoo. The skirt is the Purple galaxy skater skirt and I am also rocking the flapper hosiery. I went with simple converses because we had to do a lot of walking, but I liked it that way. The kitty ears are by Locketship.

 This year's show was an insane amount of fun. I met so many amazing people, and I got to show of my technicolor, armored nails all day long Saturday and Sunday. It was fun to wear my crazy makeup and not get stared at and it was even more fun to discuss all this beautiful makeup and all these new innovations with people who are just as passionate about this industry as I (we) are. 

 I'm really looking forward to sharing a few more posts about this show, because it really is an amazing resource for people in the industry or people trying to get into the beauty industry. That, and it was just too much of an amazing experience not to share with you guys! They are so welcoming, and they really give you the opportunity to be exposed to some of the most amazing influences in the MUA community.

 For more info about The Makeup Show you can head to their site http://www.themakeupshow.com/.

Thank you so much for stopping by today my painted beauties!! I hope you enjoyed my Cult Nails mish-mash :D.

Happy Friday loves!! 

  This post will be more photos than anything. I've previously posted about The Makeup Show Orlando [Here] and [Here] but Mr. LTHP took A TON of photos and I wanna share (most) them. 
  This will be more of a "picture diary" of #TMSOrlando. There was A LOT happening. The show hosted over 2,000 beauty industry professionals and over 60 brands. There would have been more brands but hurricane Sandy threw a wrench in that. The show was still a great success though!

Hello and good evening my lovelies! 

  So as many of you know yesterday and today (Nov 4th and 5th) was the debut of The Makeup Show in Orlando. The Makeup Show has been traveling for the past Seven years but this was their first stop in Orlando. Needless to say I was excited about this incredible opportunity. The Makeup Show put on a preview for the bloggers that were attending the show and it was hosted by non other than James Vincent, who is an industry legend. 
  Mr. LTHP was my assistant for the weekend. He was taking my photos while I did the social media, networking and the blogger panel. The blogger preview took place this past Saturday while the vendors were setting up. Many of our Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida were there, among them Miss Maria of Cult Nails. Cult Nails had a big weekend with them having their first booth at a beauty show! So John, Maria's husband was setting up the booth for Cult Nails and Maria snuck Mr. LTHP to the vendor floor to hang out with John and take pictures while we got our preview from James Vincent. This is Mr.LTHP's behind the scenes look at the setup and behind the scenes of #TMSOrlando.

A Behind the Scenes Look at CND and The Blonds- Premiere Orlando 2012

Hi loves!!!

  Today I have something very different from the norm. As many of you know I had the opportunity to attend Premiere Orlando 2012. This was my first year attending and the bar was set extremely high for next year's show. One of the most amazing things I got to experience while there was an exclusive behind the scenes look at CND and The Blonds. I've decided to split the coverage of the show into two parts so as not not overwhelm you guys with too much awesomeness. Today's feature will be of the backstage and make up room coverage. 
   I was pretty much having the biggest fangirl moment of my life being in the presence of some of my favorite designers and being able to see and touch pieces of clothing that have been worn by the likes of Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry among others. I still cannot believe I got to do this!
To see my adventures just keep on reading.

LTHP gets a Makeover at the Rock your Hair Stage- Premiere 2012

Where do I even start?

  This past weekend was absolutely incredible and this is only the first of many posts. While cruising up and down the aisles of the Premiere Orlando 2012 Exhibitor Floor with my girls Brittany, Courtney, Kimberly and Toni; Courtney got stopped by a stylist who was working the Michael O' Rurke Rock your Hair booth. He loved her edgy style and wanted to get her up on stage for a haircut by Michael, who is pretty much a legend when it comes to hair. He then turned to me and thought I had a great bob to work with so he offered the same to me. With a little push from the girls we jumped on board... BEST move ever! 
I love this before and after collage. The after shot is courtesy of Courtney.

 Might as well have some fun with it right?! Another great shot by Miss Courtney. Rockin' my hair!
To see more pics of the fun and find out more about Rock your Hair just keep on reading :D!
