I'm back!! {a little bit of everything}

  So I had this idea to become the go to person for all of your makeup questions.  Whether it is about color or application or a product that you want to use but you don't know how, email me your questions and I will give the answers to help you through your makeup journey.  I want to help take the scary out of makeup.

You can email me at kimporter@makeupbykimporter.com and I will also put a link at the top.  Anytime, any question, I will help you along the way.

So we are back from our vacation.  
I kept busy on the 10 hour car ride to Tennessee by reading the August 2012 issue of Instyle magazine.

I have seen a lot of these lip stick pencils lately, these are from Pixi and
were in the Beauty Deals & Steals article.  

They remind me of the Color Sticks that I am carrying for my Kim Porter cosmetics line.  These chubby pencils glide on like a gloss and condition lips with Vitamin C & E.  They are great because they are easy but deliver a better color payoff than most lipglosses alone.

 In Townsend, Tennessee where we were glamping, my husband and I stopped in a locally owned shop called, Dog'wood mall.   The owner and I got to talking and he is from where I live, in Virginia Beach.  Small world!!  He saw me admiring the turquoise jewelry and said that it has been seen all over the fashion world and was really popular right now.  Well I didn't need much convincing when I tried this ring on.

Later that day I read this article in the Instyle magazine.  I guess the owner was right!!

On our vacation we were totally "glamping" {glamour + camping} in our air conditioned cabin, totally equipped with a kitchen.  We were right on the Little River and even took the kiddos tubing in it.  Fun times for all!

Cades Cove

  These pictures were taken in Cades Cove.  It's an amazing view and abundant wild life, we saw tons of deer and occasionally you can see a black bear.   If you've never been to visit the Great Smoky Mountains, I definitely recommend it.
