Recently I've been rediscovering my love for makeup and all things beauty. A few weeks ago I attended The Makeup Show in Los Angeles where I acquired a few goodies. I literally have a tote full of new products to try and review. I wanted to start with a new foundation I bought at the show. I've been a loyal user of BareMinerals for many many years. I have not used any other foundation for about 6-8 years and just last year decided to try a few new (to me) products. I was searching for a new foundation and after testing a few decide to buy the PUR Minerals Liquid Veil 4-in-1 Spray Foundation. Actually PUR Minerals was one of the few vendors who took cash and gave me a 50% off discount, that was enough for me to say YES! Also the idea of a spray can foundation was intriguing to me and visions of spraying my face with foundation thrilled me. I imagined a few sprays of the foundation on my face and voilà, I would have a perfect flawless application of makeup. OK so my dreams were shattered a bit when I was told you don't spray foundation directly on your face. I suppose you can but don't expect a flawless face of anything! Keep reading for my full review and experience with this foundation.

When you are plus size the choices in fashion can be limiting. Growing up and being a teen in the 90's was rough and my choices in fashion were very few. We didn't have the amazing brands and stores like we do now. It has been great to see the plus size fashion industry grow and offer more stylish and modern choices. Don't get me wrong, retailers for plus size existed, they just didn't offer styles for younger women. Stores like Lane Bryant and Catherine's have been around for decades, however when you are a teenager, those are not the first choices that come to mind, when shopping for cute clothes. I either had to shop in the men's section for jeans and cool tees or have my mother make me a dress for prom (which she did). The choices are much better and have improved greatly, yes even Lane Bryant and Catherine's have cuter and more stylish clothing now. By the time I got to college and had my first job, I wanted better, more stylish and trendy clothes. This is how I learned to shop non-plus size brands for clothes that fit my body and my style.

Just couple weeks ago I was strolling the aisles at The Makeup Show. Row upon row of glorious and beautiful makeup, it was heavenly! All the best in the industry are there from the brands to makeup artist. Two full days of seminars, keynote speakers, workshops and shopping. It was a great way to spend a weekend in LA. If you love makeup and are addicted to it like most of us beauty bloggers then you will enjoy my 10 favorite moments from the show. There are many great moments from the makeup show and so many pictures to share. I do have a video coming soon as well to share. Now I leave you with 10 moments from The Makeup Show that were my favorite.
