About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Preakness Time!


It's Preakness this weekend! Being a Baltimore girl, I thought I would share with you beauties the official drink of this horse race: The Black- Eyed Susan (makes one cocktail)
3/4 ounce Vodka
1 1/4 ounce Early Times Kentucky Whisky
3 ounces sour mix
2 ounces Orange Juice
Shake & serve over ice. Garnish with an orange slice & cherry. Enjoy!
For those of you who prefer a classic Mint Julep while watching your horse races- here you go!
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
8-10 sprigs of fresh mint
Early Times Kentucky Whiskey
Make a simple syrup by boiling the water & sugar together for 5 minutes. Let cool, then add sprigs of mint & refrigerate mixture overnight.
Fill cups with ice, then add 2 ounces of Kentucky Whiskey & one tablespoon of mint syrup to each individual glass. Top with simple syrup, stir & garnish with fresh mint! Cheers to having a great weekend!

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
