Oily skin? How to "mattify" yourself:
Hey there readers! I was asked a question concerning oily skin and I feel that the information would be useful for those of you who share the same issues! My response: “First think, do you use a primer, moisturizer or sunscreen, toners or cleansers? If so, they may be the reason why your skin is becoming oilier so try to find a cleanser that doesn’t emphasize moisturizing if you naturally...
The Dior Catwalk
I really adore the creativity and time put into the makeup at Dior’s fashion shows. The bold use of abstraction, colors and additives make the model’s makeup look more like a piece of art hanging amongst a collection of Picasso’s in a high-end museum rather than fashion makeup. Dior really goes above and beyond in their shows, showcasing their artistic fashion designs...

Client Files: Mia
Yesterday I worked with my rockin’ client Mia who wanted an 1940’s-50’s pin-up girl look for her 20 year high school reunion…using her own products: RIGHT?! When she pulled out this lot of MAC, Benefit, Chanel, Clinique and who knows what else, I basically died. Yeah, died. Mia expressed how when she goes to MAC she buys everything she likes and in all of the...
