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!

Files From the Brow Whisperer

Another first time client came in this week, with a bit of P.T.B.D. (Post Traumatic Brow Disorder.) As per my request, she left her brows alone for at least 2 weeks before her appointment with me. More hair there is = more canvas I have to work with.  Sometimes I feel like clients pluck on their way to see me!
Since this was her first visit & she had been overwaxed in the past, I was conservative. I left them very full.  There are some patchy spots underneath that we're hoping will grow in. I then gave her a tutorial on brow powder & filling in her brows.
See how brow powder can be your best friend! It keeps your on one the prize - while you're growing them in. It's such a night a day difference + I feel like it helps my new clients put down the tweezers. That's their homework if they want to see great results. Her brows go from okay to amazing with that final step! 

Peace. Love. Lipgloss.

Red Onion, Baton Rouge

So I love interior design almost as much as I love make-up. I guess I favor things where fluctuations in personal weight don't matter;)
I went down to visit one of my best friends in Baton Rouge last week. The fact that it already seems like forever ago amazes me. Anyhow she recently moved into a lovely new home, so we were hopping into a lot of decor stores.
Red Onion literally made me cry with happiness. I couldn't resist, onions -> crying. I'll stop, promise. It was very me, style wise. I love orchids, but the glass vessels & color palette had me swooning.
Luckily holiday was still up around the store in some places.
My friend Shelley ended up choosing this amazing succulent garden for her kitchen island. It's stunning & adds real presence to a large piece of marble countertop.
Since I couldn't carry anything as heavy as her piece home with me, I scooped up a live olive plant & some faux succulents for arround the house. Though I often loathe fake plants, when I find a really believable one- I'll mix it in with some live plants to cut down on maintenance. I hope these pictures do the store justice- pop in if you're in that area. I was obsessed & so inspired.
Peace. Love. Lipgloss.

Latest Obsession: Jouer Lip Enhancers

I don't know what neck of the woods you're reading this from, but here on the East Coast- it's freezing! I normally like the cold, but this is redonkulous. Everything on me is dry- my hands & lips particularly.  I even broke down & bought a humidifier. My latest obsession to help fix my parched pucker: Jouer's Lip Enhancers. Those of you familiar with the cult favorite Sara Happ Lip Slip, this is very similar in texture- just enhanced slightly with color.
From left: Pearl Enhancer in Peach, Tinted Enhancer in Bellini, Tinted Enhancer in Cosmo, Pearl Enhancer in Nude, Tinted Enhancer in Shiraz & Pearl Enhancer in Rose. 
My personal favorite has been Bellini (of course it's named after a cocktail!)- it's a gorgeous apricot that instantly wakes up your fave. The fan favorite at the boutique has been Rose Pearl. With these temperatures & the enhancers priced at a reasonable $16- I'll be adding more to my assortment!
Peace. Love. Lipgloss.

Files From The Brow Whisperer

Whenever a new client reaches out to me for an appointment, I ask that they leave their brows alone for at least 2 weeks. I prefer even longer so I have enough to work with in terms of establishing a new shape. This client gave me a great canvas!
This is immediately following waxing while the client is still on my treatment table.  It's a night & day difference after trimming & grooming her brows.
An even better shot looking straight at the eye- see the lift she now has to the eye area. Amazing if I do say so myself;)

Peace. Love. Brow Whisperer.
