Smirnoff in the HOUSE!

Our Smirnoff Experience contest winner/writer Amanda Jerome gives us a preview of the event through her eyes (incredible photography by Scott Tromley)…

“Welcome to the Smirnoff experience,” said two beautiful ladies as I entered the Guvernment. I was there to see Paul Oakenfold, the legendary DJ, and to have a good time, but I got so much more than that! The room was vibrating from the music and sheer energy of the massive crowd. Smirnoff red lights filled the club and made it glow.

The complimentary drink tickets given out by the Smirnoff ladies had the crowd at ease and helped get the party going. They were also passing out free Shutter Shades, so everyone in the crowd was sporting the Kanye West look. Cool drinks + funky shades officially equals a good time!

By the time the clock struck midnight the dance floor was packed, the fog machine was on full blast and a laser show was in the works, making the Smirnoff experience totally surreal. As the beats got louder people started climbing up on platforms above the crowd to dance and wind up the rest of the audience. It was madness I tells ya, madness! This was one of the most banging parties I’ve ever been to at the Guvernment, or anywhere else for that matter. If you weren’t there, you should have been.

Shadow Shields a.k.a…my favorite thing ever!

Problem: smudgy, messy, under-eye ugliness caused by eye shadow fall-out.
Solution: Shadow Shields!

You HAVE to check this out. It’s a self-adhesive pad perfectly shaped to fit right underneath the eye. It “shields” all that excess makeup that falls under your eye making you look like you haven’t slept in a decade!

Instead of doing your eye makeup first, or having to use a makeup remover towelette to clean off excess shadow, prevent it from happening in the first place. What’s so cool about Shadow Shields is you can use them in a few different ways depending on the look you want. If you want dramatic lower lashes, put the Shadow Shields right underneath the lashes so it picks up excess mascara. If you are using glitter, only take off the adhesive off the very top of the Shadow Shields so it catches excess glitter that may fall all over the face. You can also take the adhesive off the entire Shadow Shield if you know the shadow won’t fall all over the face like I did below:

(If you use an under-eye concealer, apply after taking Shadow Shield off or else it will come off right with it.)

I was introduced to this company at The Makeup Show. I met Michelle Villanueva, make up artist, who is the creator behind this ingenious idea. Shadow Shields were even seen on the Today Show’s, “Best in Beauty” segment. Jackie Gomez (Beyonce and Solange Knowles make up artist) said, “Top Product of 2009! Truly Innovative!!”

Shadow Shields are currently available for $9.99/30 shields at, and They’re also available at Sephora Stores.

Here are the results I had…
