Wedding Makeup


Did a makeover on this young lady for one of her best friends wedding..











The lighter eyeliner (powder) really did it for me with this look... she looked so fresh & radiant yet still had a little edge with the smokey eye!





If you focus on good skincare, you will use way less makeup!









In Soho With Bobbi Brown . . . No Big Deal

 

My experience meeting Makeup Artist & Businesswoman BOBBI BROWN was such a delight! After taking this pic with Bobbi I said, "I'm about to send this picture to my mom!"  Then all of a sudden Bobbi goes... "What's your moms name?"  I say, "Rhea."  Bobbi then says to me, "Get Rhea on the phone, I'd like to tell her what a beautiful daughter she has!"  At this point I'm trying to play cool pretend my palms aren't sweating & my heart isn't racing... is this really happening to me right now?  Bobbi Brown just said I'm beautiful & would like to speak with my mom... okay, no big deal. I call my mom... they speak, my mother is in total shock because she just loves Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, definitely wasn't expecting a phone call from Bobbi herself!

S/S 2014: YSL Top Coat Lip Gloss!


 
I am a huge fan of luxury makeup; I just love when the seasons are changing and we get all the new launches! New shades, formulas, textures....


 
YSL has launched their new lip gloss line called Gloss Volupté. ($32)
 
As a makeup artist 9 times out of 10 I use a lip gloss on my clients, even if its just popped right in the middle for a little dimension to give the lips a pretty pout.  How brilliant of YSL to label the top coat glosses, giving them a title and an actual purpose...
  • Gold - to add a dazzle of glitter
  • Pure - for intense shine
  • Smoking - for a day to night look

 

Get unbelievable shine without the stickiness. Inspired by a kiss, Gloss Volupté provides up to ten times more shine than a classic gloss. The unique applicator is shaped like a kiss and allows for even application over fuller or finer lips. Mix and match the three top coats to the glosses to achieve different looks and effects from subtle to sultry!

 

 

 

 Always keep an emergency kit in your purse; double sided tape, Tylenol, a small energy bar & of course.... lip gloss!
