Desert Beauty.

Saturday, June 24th, 2017


Makeup has become so heavy and so thick with contour and highlight. Personally, I’ve had enough. Now that I’m based in the desert, I’ve made the decision to give up foundation. Less is more! As skin matures you might want to chart a course for refinement and rejuvenation. Otherwise- makeup can really become mask like on the skin. Consider your environment, as well. Where I live the temperatures are high and the air is dry. Skin protection comes first for me now. Concealer only where I need it. I’ve simplified everything. Especially my makeup bag. A perfect multi-use palette that’s changed the makeup game for me is from Nude & Noir – it has everything I need to highlight, shade, contour and add a pop of color.

Paula’s Choice.

Monday, December 8th, 2014


When I began my career as a professional Makeup Artist, certain books were standard research. Anything by Kevyn Aucoin, Bobbi Brown, Scavullo on Beauty and “Don’t Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me” by Paula Begoun. This book is the holy grail of cosmetics ingredients and skincare research. That concern for safe cosmetics and attention to the latest research has gone into her own line- Paula’s Choice. The full line can be found here….

Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint.

Sunday, October 19th, 2014


Lipstick wise, I’m in a matte place. One of my go-to lip colors that I carry with me everywhere right now is Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint in Fiery. Tarte is an all time favorite brand of mine, with ingredients and formulas that I trust to perform on set and in real life. I’m hooked on the texture of these Natural Matte LipSurgence Lip Tints and so is everyone that I introduce them to. The matte velvet texture stays silky and supple, wears long yet never ends up dry and flaky on the lips. I’ve been looking for this balance in matte texture for ages. Peppermint-infused to naturally plump lips- Tarte Lip Surgence Matte Lip Tints are paraben free, sulfate free, and phthalate free. Explore their color collection and find the perfect pop of red (my favorite, Fiery, is above) and the perfect nude ( my other favorite, Exposed, is paired with it).
