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!

Polish Pic{k}s

It's pedicure season & a fun pop of color works well with this fair skin of mine.
QRS is a polish line I actually wasn't familiar with & was pleased to find very affordable. Violet Pink is a bright blue undertoned pink that is just shy of neon & perfect for a pair of sandals!

Peace. Love. Polish.

Files From the Brow Whisperer

Most clients have to fill in the tail end of their brows with pencil or powder to give it a little more presence. With this client, it was the exact opposite- in fact the tail was closing in her eye a bit, making them look a little droopy.
By balancing out the proportions of her brows- her face had a whole new lease on life & her eyes looked more lifted. She instantly appeared more awake & refreshed. Who doesn't want to look like they've had more sleep!

Manicure Monday

 I feel like Selena Gomez has been in my life a lot lately. Besides being on the cover of my InStyle & not being able to get her song, "Come & Get It" out of my head for a week- she's been on my fingers & toes, too!
Her polish that is. I spotted Selena's namesake shade in her collaboration with Nicole by OPI at Ulta. I was a good girl & didn't get it since I already have enough polish to last a decade. However I couldn't get the perfect peachy shade out of my mind. I feel like it's a great summery color for my pale skin tone- so of course I acquiesced & bought it. I'm glad I did.

Peace. Love. Polish.

Files From the Brow Whisperer

I've been working with some of my clients for over a decade. Nothing makes me happier than when I get new clients via word of mouth. For a while one of my regulars was saying I just had to get my hands on her friend & that she was going to get her in to see me come hell or high water!
This client's brows had a fair amount of cowlicks & some patchiness in them. I spent some time explaining how important brow gel or even brushing hairspray through her brows would be to keeping her shape in place. I had to even out some natural gaps in her brows,  as she hadn't been waxed in years. I streamlined their overall shape to open up & lift her eyes. 

Peace. Love. Brow Whisperer.

Tarte Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation

Thanks to Maureen Kelly, creator of Tarte Beauty,  I now have some more free time in the morning! There are a group of products that I call Lazy Day Beauty Essentials. This term is reserved for products in my mind that require minimal effort to use, but deliver a lot of results. They are great for when you're running late in the morning (which is every morning for me) or lazy Sundays when you still want to look pulled together.  
The fact that Tarte's Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation is one, also makes it a perfect summer beauty pick with it being so simple. This powder is a win win. Because let's face the fact that every one of us usually has something they want to hide, in terms of imperfections that frustrate us with our complexions. I know I initially doubted the ability for a powder foundation to offer true full coverage- but this one does.
Even as a skincare expert, there are still things that I'd love to improve with my skin- hyperpigmentation being my main issue. More & more female clients of mine struggle with this same frustration- got to love those hormones!
 Because I'm self conscious of it, I like a fuller coverage foundation around my upper cheeks- but want completely natural looking coverage. I don't even need to use a separate concealer with this product. Buff it on, build the coverage to where you want it & off you go. The Amazonian Clay helps regulate oil production as we head into muggy summer weather. The added Tourmaline & Camilla Leaf Extract boost a surge of moisture for the skin. Just a dollop of pearl powder prevents the powder from looking chalky. This is definitely a Must Have Make-Up Monday product for me!

Peace. Love. Lipgloss.
