BLUSH episode 4

When I watch shows like this one I always try to guess based on the judges point of view, who will be cast off. I was guessing that Mo would go, and sure enough, she went. She had awesome personal style, that bright red hair, her exaggerated false eyelashes, and super cute clothes. I just could not figure out why she could not transform her personal creativity onto her models. Oh, well, I liked her, but I felt she was not shining through on this show. I still like Maxi, he has great technique, I only wish I could see what these artist could do without a stop watch! Only one girl left against three outrageously awesome gay men! Will Farah hold her own next week? Watch Tuesdays on Lifetime, 9:00pmCST.

Thanksgiving is here...

Thanksgiving is here... and then it is the count down to the Holiday season! Medusa's Make-Up elves are working diligently to get all the makeup sets completed, our staff is working overtime to make sure those sets are in the mail asap. Speaking of mail, did you know we just added new shipping options to our web store? Yeah that is great, you can choose FREE shipping by the USPS when your order reaches $50, and you can also choose UPS ground or UPS 2nd day air for a real time cost. That is sooo awesome, cuz if your in a crunch you still can get our wonderul makeup delivered in time for your big day!

BLUSH episode 3

Episode 3, now the show is starting to get serious, 2 contestants were eliminated, Sharzad, she just really needs to learn the difference between the 70's and the 80's, and the 20's etc. She definitely has a future career in makeup, but most likely behind a makeup counter, and that is totally fine. The judges thought she was a little heavy handed, I didn't mind, I like bold. Myke finally gets the boot, it's like sorry, but your personal style says it all, it is not about your age, but you look like the tour manager of Whitesnake, and as much as Whitesnake can totally rock, the tour manager look, is well, dated to say the least! He has this long list of experience, but it really didn't show, I mean, I heard Glamour shots is looking for a makeup artist.

Now is where this show is going to get good! It is really going to get heated with the remaining artist, they all know that everyone left now is truly talented and has special expertise, so it will depend on the challenges ahead. Maxi, dear, you still have a huge chance, but it is not in the bag yet!

Watch episode 4 Tuesday December 2, 2008 Lifetime

BLUSH episode 2

OK, so Maxi is the star of this show, at least I think so, anyone who cries gets the cake, know what I mean? I also like Nolan and Mo. What about Charlie Green, the mentor makeup artist? I love her! The way she antagonizes as she checks in on each artist during their projects. But what was with that faux-hawk? Anyhoo, the poor girl who took a risk on purple eye shadow got sent home, wrong choice today, sorry Rainell..... Can't wait till next Tuesday at 9:00pm CST. Lifetime!

Did anyone watch "Blush" episode 1? I was so excited for this show. I absolutely love Project Runway and found the show Shear Genius entertaining. But this one is really right up my alley! So I loved right away that we have ourselves the shows BIG character Maxi, just too funny Mr. Fabulous! Well, he's done more music videos than anyone, will we win????? BTW, Sharzad, thinking that Madonna in the 80's cult classic movie "Desperately Seeking Susan" was twisted disco, come on, get your decades straight! Well, obviously I could go on and on but I won't, except, well that sunburst by Nolan was definitely something, something I wouldn't want to wear!!! LOL. Can't wait till tuesday for episode 2.

At the Medusa's Make-Up facility we have been working our butts off, just like little elves making toys, we have so many eye dusts, glitters and lip glosses in stock and ready to be shipped to the nice and naughty! My personal favorite lip gloss this month is "Smooch" it is suprisingly perfect! Also, Fascination eye dust looks really cool with my new purple glitter knit sweater!

Had a very veggie lunch with PETA!

Wow, I feel really honored, I just had lunch with a PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) representative. Since I was being visited in my home town of Chicago, it was my choice of restaurants, so we went to one of my favorite places, Victory's Banner. I ordered my usual tofu curry wrap, delicious by the way, and she ordered the veggie/peanut wrap.
Very nice conversation and inspirational to say the least. We spoke about our careers, recycling, her farm in California with her 2 pigs! I only have one cat, so I felt kind of boring in comparison. It is always great to meet total strangers with different backgrounds that actually stand for the same values.
Medusa's Make-up was awarded the PETA trailblazer award! PETA currently has a contest on the site for a Medusa's Make-Up giveaway, they like us and we like them and we all like animlas! Life is good!
