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!

Behold the Power of Make-Up

Unfortunately Halloween came a little early for my friend, client & trusty dog walker last week! She literally had a run in with a dog, colliding head to head with a pooch while catching a frisbee that resulted in 7 stitches! Murphy's Law would have it that there was a wedding she wwould be reading in that she was so looking forward to!

While I wanted to leave the stiches alone to keep them clean in order to promote optimal healing, I was able to neutralize the discoloration using just 2 different concealers. I used Paul & Joe's Under Eye Concealer 03 which has pink undertones applied softly with a concealer brush to cancel out the blue in the bruise, while I turned to Clinique's All About Eyes in shade 02(it was a winner in my Glammies last year- you can see why!) That shade had yellow undertones which helped cancel out the red in the bruise. I often joke that I'm a beautician- not a magician(my sister even gave me a tank top with that saying on it) but short of a magic wand I think my poor friend B's eye looked great without looking too cakey!

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M
