For those suffering with adult acne, facial scarring, or rosacea, covering up the skin and creating a flawless look to the face is of the utmost importance. Along with these skin conditions, skin sensitivity can also prove to be a huge hurdle.
It's here. The holiday and Chritmas decorations are already flooding the stores. I instantaneously get a tense grip in my shoulders at the thought of holiday madness. Trust me, I adore the Winter season, twinkly lights, and warm hot chocolates (spiked, preferably) as much as the next person, but the strain of the season always leaves me exhausted. I can't be the only one, right?!
With all the talk lately about Lindsey Lohen's yellow tinted teeth, I got to thinking about how much your smile makes an impact to others. I have tried countless ways to brighten my choppers, and am constantly on the lookout for a way to make teeth sparkle. Let's face it, I want people to be noticing my radiant smile, not my dingy teeth!
Today I celebrate Mr. Michael. My love. He is 30-mumble- mumble-cough- years old today. In honor of his birthday I will do a post directed at all you fabulous males out there. There are still some good men left in this world. This post is for you!
A few months back I was able to try out (or shall I say, ask Mike to try out!… he is such an amazing Guinea pig) a new skincare specifically branded for men called Kyoku. The first thing I loved about the line was that they didn't try to snow me, and say that it was unisex. It's for men.

Did you know that by October 2011, Estee Lauder will have donated more than $8.5 million to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Every day women around the globe are affected by this horrible disease. This summer it hit particularly close to home for me, as I watched my best friend fight this raging monster of a disease. Thanks to organizations like this, whose money helps to keep research, funding and advancement possible, my friend is in remission.
This morning I was reading Yahoo's Fashion+Beauty section, and read the most incredible article. As a "healthy" girl (or shall we say curvy?) myself, I have always been horrified at the medias perception of what a beautiful woman should look like. Skinny, Tall, and a strong resemblence to Barbie seems to be the norm. But I, like many others, am a whole different type of normal beauty. Curvy, soft, and no where near a size 0. Yet, I believe I shine. Why can't we focus on inner beauty, the radiance of a woman's smile, the curve of her hips, and the light in her eyes. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did.
One of my first jobs as a makeup artist was working for the Vincent Longo makeup counter at Neiman Marcus. I adored the makeup line, and Vincent Longo was one of my makeup idols at the time (still is!). You can imagine my surprise and excitement when Vincent Longo called me personally to thank me for being apart of his team. He was warm, generous, and a pleasure to work for. The best part? His line is iconic, and was instrumental in my makeup artistry education.
Vincent Longo was one of the first to introduce the makeup primer, and the Water Canvas Primer is still one of the best on the market today. I personally have been using his Pearlessence Lip and Cheek Gel Stains forever (see previous review here!
