I do love makeup, fashion and hair so Pasadena is calling my name .. well face & hair!

Spread the love

I’m always on the lookout to find makeup and hair tips for my coloring/hair texture so will defintely head to Pasadena to check out PHAMexpo from June 29 – 30, 2013.

I’ve been desperate to find a good strong bright pink eyeshadow and blush that will look good on my dark brown skin but NOBODY is making the fushia pink Iwant.  I’m sure someone will have it at PHAMExpo or I can bend their ear to MAKE the color!  Anyone else planning to see what what’s coming around the bend for fashionable people and of course professionals?

Hmmm will for sure see what hair products they have and maybe find a stylist who is experienced with naturally texture hair like my own!

<sigh> I can’t wait to go it will be like a candy store but without the calories hmmm but a lot more expensive!  bwa ha ha
