Kelsey’s Makeup for Local Talent Show

I had the wonderful opportunity to do makeup for this soon to be star!  Kelsey performed for a local talent show and earned first place for the high school division!!!  She sang, played guitar and looked gorgeous doing it too!  Kelsey usually likes to keep her look more natural when I do her makeup but on stage she needed just a bit more.

I took warm browns, ranging from light to deep across her eye and into her crease and below.  I added darker on the outside corner and did a slight shimmer on the inside corner.  Topped it off with smokey black liner and of course lashes!!  Products used:  Makeup Geek, Urban Decay, Mac Cosmetics.  Lashes – Ardell and brows -Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Kelsey has great skin so I added a touch of airbrush foundation from Dinair- Soft Glow collection to keep her looking flawless and natural.  Then, I added contour by Anastasia Beverly Hills, blush by Mac Cosmetics and Bare Minerals.  Lips were a combo of Colour Pop and Bare Minerals.

Congratulations Kelsey!

Makeup for Casey

Casey is beautiful both inside and out.  If she looks familiar to some of you, it is because she has been my model on several occasions.  On Saturday, she came to me for makeup for her family photo session.  Then, I met her on location to darken up her look for a special photo shoot.  More details on that part later….

International Women’s Day


IMG_0338When we lived in Italy, Women’s Day was a big deal and I always loved that.  I  remember one of my Italian friends giving me flowers on this day to celebrate and it left such an imprint in my heart.  So, I wanted to pass that on to you!

I think women should be celebrated!  I also think that we should support one another  in life and business.  I have been so lucky in my life to know and have known so many strong, inspiring, intelligent, and fun women.  I don’t know where I would be today without each one of you.  Thank you!

So, beautiful ladies, I raise a glass of champagne to celebrate YOU!

Amber’s Bridal Makeup

Amber wanted to go a bit darker on her eyes and lips for her wedding day.  So, we decided on a  combination of bronze and soft black for her smokey eye along with a bright highlighted under eye.  I topped it off with liner and lashes, added airbrush foundation, contour and blush to finish the look.

I wish Amber and Todd a lifetime of love and happiness.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!amber-mirror-logo
