Laura Nadeau, New York City Vendor: Makep Artist Website: Lo and Co. About Me: Laura (Lo) loves all brides all of the time, and nothing makes her happier than making another woman feel great! Laura was born and raised in rural Alaska among huskies, grizzly bears and way too much flannel! With stars in her eyes, Lo moved to New York to pursue acting and realized how makeup could help to create a character and transform an actor.

About Laura Nadeau @ Lo and Co

The sexy and sassy stylist (I just love alliteration) and fellow PRO blogger, Amy Salinger asked me to be a guest for her Fab in Five video. Amy has a slew of great videos on youtube and her website/blog is amazing. Click here to subscribe to Amy’s videos. Check it out for stylish yet practical tips. I had a blast doing this video and am planning on doing more how-to videos this month.

NARS Multiple Creme Duo ($45) or Nars Blush/Bronzer Shadow Duo ($37) - A must have in my makeup kit.

Avon’s Mark Cosmetics has some great blush and bronzers at a great price ($6) I use After Glo everyday for a great peachy blush and Bronze Glo and Golden Glo work well as a bronzer.

Technique: Apply bronzer in a big “c” around your eyes brushing on and under your cheekbone and lightly over your eyes on the temples. Add blush on the apples of your cheeks for a healthy glow.

Don’t forget to tap off excess powder on brush before applying and use the brush to blend once the powder has been dispersed on cheek. When in doubt, blend and check your makeup in natural light.

L’Oreal Infinite Wear Shimmer Eyeshadow - Shroom

Stila Kitten Eyeshadow - another staple in my makeup kit

Technique: Apply with brush or finger all over lid. Add to inside corner for extra “oomph”

Prestige Lip Liner in Cameo or in Natural. Can find in drugstores.

Technique: Apply neutral lip liner all over the lip as a lip primer to add longevity to any gloss.

Hair Favorites

Marc Anthony Strictly Curls - I picked this up at Duane Reade and was super impressed with the product. It is great on curly hair and I also found that it works well on slightly wavy hair like mine to create a “beachy wave” look.

Technique: Work product into hands and apply lightly to curls.

Salon Grafix Spray Powder Shampoo- Skip the pricey powder shampoos and get the same results.

Technique: Hold can 6-8 inches away from hair and spray toward the root of the hair. Spray in sections where you need lift or want to absorb oil. Best to do little at a time, don’t spray your entire head like Amy does in the video!

I use Marc Anthony Strictly Curls EVERYDAY. I love it. It keeps my curls looking strong all day. The only other thing I use is a quick layer of Aqua Net to hold the shape.

I put Strictly Curls in my towel dried hair and leave it alone to air dry. I’m a little damp looking for the first two hours of the day, but then I can fluff it a little bit to give my hair volume on top. It’s also sold in a lot of drug stores; it’s not hard to find at all.

GREAT PRODUCT!
