NB: I have nothing to declare!

Once again The Makeup Show was amazing!  And it was super, duper crowded.  I have been going for years and I don’t ever remember it being that crazy!  I was happier to see my blogging friends, and I did not haul that much so my wallet was certainly quite thrilled at that!  The classes, usual, were inspiring and I loved seeing so many people with some amazing makeup looks! And by the way, if you took pictures with me, tag me or email them to me so that I could add them!

So here are some photos of the day!  Chicago, here’s what you could expect to see!

Anyway, so I saw this poster where Jordin Sparks appeared in an ad campaign for the clothing store bebe as a promo for Sparkle.

Here’s the look!
