A few weeks ago, I wrote about MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Magical Mystery Tour called “Makeup Bag Remix” coming to a city near you. I was lucky enough to experience this fun event in all its glory when the MAKE UP FOR EVER trucks cruised into San Francisco. I was put into the talented hands of Make Up Artist Genoa, who taught me a few tricks on how to utilize my existing makeup to create a day look and how to use a gorgeous MAKE UP FOR EVER palette (see below) to magically camouflage my puffy eyes AND create the perfect hot pink lip.
Now what was totally unique about this event is I had to beg Genoa to show me new MAKE UP FOR EVER products. That’s right, it’s the opposite of getting bullied at the makeup counter. These makeup artists stick to their word and show you how to utilize ONLY the products in your bag unless you request to see some new product. I took a few short videos (and please excuse the extremely unflattering angles. I took one for the team) to help you recreate the magic at home.
How to Conceal Puffy Eyes
Shockingly Genoa used the MAKE UP FOR EVER 12 Flash Color Case ($99) to completely neutralize my puffy eyes:
First she patted the white onto the puffiness and then created a sunrise color with the coral and yellow and then layered it on top of the white: (If video doesn’t show up for you, click here)

Hello, my lovelies! I recently returned to News10 ABC Sacramento to bestow my beauty knowledge. For the first segment I talked Winter Skincare Tips and for the second segment I shared my favorite multi-tasking makeup that will help you battle even the coldest of winters. You will find links to all the products I mentioned below the clips. Enjoy!

Now is this a great idea or what? MAKE UP FOR EVER is launching a mobile tour across the country called the Make Up Bag Remix, teaching you how to do your own make up (not just applying it) with the items that are already in your make up bag:
“As part of the Make Up Bag Remix concept, MAKE UP FOR EVER’s team of professional artists will take a look inside consumers’ make up bags and teach them how to properly use what they already own, regardless of the brand, as well as overhaul products that are the wrong shade or texture.”janna Tags MAKE UP FOR EVER

Every week I will write an accompanying blog post so you don’t have to write down any of the products or links we mention in the show. And of course I will post any pictures we discuss! So enjoy and let me know what you think!
Show: Why Does Your Makeup Look Like Sh*t??
Summary: I know it’s a harsh question but trust me you’ll want to hear the answer. Whether you’re using the wrong products or the right products in the wrong way, there may be just a few alterations you need to make to your daily ritual! Join me as I chat with the ultra-talented makeup artist Maria Luxen, founder of Maria’s Make-Up Mayhem. Not only will we help you so that your own makeup doesn’t look like sh*t, we’ll pick on a few celebrities guilty of bad red carpet makeup, showing you that you’re not alone.janna Tags Amore Pacific, Celebrities, MAC, MAC makeup, MAKE UP FOR EVER, Podcast, Tarte, Urban Decay
Okay, yes I know this is the season for giving but it’s also the season for taking advantage of when the top beauty companies put out gift sets that that combine their best-selling products for much less than you would pay a la carte. I mean come on, you deserve a little self-love, right?? Obviously if you have friends and family members who share your beauty addiction buy them one too!
1. Tarte Set of 5 Full-Size Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Glosses $34.50 ($105.00 value): This set can actually make you feel a little better about buying it for yourself since you can just keep your favorite shades and slap a bow on the rest and give them as gifts. These unique glosses are both hydrating and long-lasting and thankfully don’t leave your lips looking like a frosty mall chick mess (which I forbid; frost is bad). Active ingredient Maracuja Oil moisturizes while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving lips a fuller, plumped appearance.janna Tags Gift Ideas, Giveaway, Holiday Gift Sets, MAKE UP FOR EVER, Sephora, Tarte
We all know I’m spoiled… I get tons of products sent to me by publicists for consideration. I test them all — hating some, liking others, and coveting a select few. When I say “covet” we’re talking about products that will permanently become part of my personal regimen and be re-bought again and again. People always ask me, “What are your favorite products?” Here’s a good place to start:
1. Kate Somerville ‘Dermal Quench Liquid Lift’ Advanced Wrinkle Treatment ($95): I’m a huge fan of in-spa oxygen facials and this treatment seems to mimic the instant smoothing effects of an oxygen facial and still manages to reduce redness and fine lines over-time. I had two consistent dry patches on my cheeks that were softer after Day 1. It’s also perfect for pre-event regimens since it has temporary wrinkle-relaxing PFC- carriers to relax facial muscles.
