Behind the Scenes with the Bengson Sisters

My beautiful nieces, Amber, Aly and Lexi stopped by my studio yesterday for an impromptu makeup + photoshoot session. It is so rare that I get to spend time with them like that since they live all the way in Arizona now. We had such a fun time listening to the Drake Pandora station and it was lovely to watch them play with my kids. Stay tuned for the finished photos and makeup details!

*Exhale* Ok…📢 World Stop! (Kidding but…) I am so happy, overjoyed, emotional, scared, & confident with butterflies in my tummy to finally LAUNCH my new website. This month marks 10 years that I have been in the beauty industry and I can finally say I am completely happy with my brand! I meet newbies all the time that expect to have microwave success with a ton of clients the minute they get their licenses but to them I always say, Stay true to your passion, Always market yourself & Be consistent. YOU are your brand and most importantly BE PATIENT! I’m so grateful for every one of my clients, friends and family that have supported me this far. Special thanks to Toni of @diybrandlab teaching me how to design my own site and being an integral part in getting it up and running! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to my DOPE AZZ photographer & friend @g75designs & my favorite model chick @tiaralaniece for the bomb photoshoot that produced amazing images! My hair stylist @elsavage27 providing hair for the shoot! And last but not least @killinit____ for my head shots this past week that were used on the site. Have at it everyone!!!

Beat of the Day

Summer makeup time! Today is a busy day. I will be taking my kids to a pool party this afternoon then I have a makeup + photoshoot session tonight. 

A little bit of foundation and a lot of bronzer for today’s look. I had to resort to my Bare Minerals foundation because my skin has been so dry and irritated lately and that is the only foundation I can tolerate right now. Yes, I said “resort to.” Bare Minerals is NOT one of my favorite foundations at all but sometimes you have to do what’s right for your skin. 

Product Details:

Face: Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Golden Medium, Benefit Cosmetics Bronzer in Hoola (applied to cheeks, nose and forehead). 

Eyes: M.A.C. Eyeshadow in Bronze to crease. Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Smog underneath the eyes. NARS Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates for my winged liner. 

Lips: Mally Beauty High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Life is Fuschia mixed with Cargo Cosmetics Lipgloss in Anguilla. 

In case you’re wondering, I am wearing Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions although I’m due for a refill soon. No mascara or curling my lashes anymore! I am so happy I found an Xtreme Lash Stylist in my area!! Lash extensions give me LIFE.
