Easy, Last Minute Halloween Batman Mask with Everyday Makeup

Let's start out by saying there are some POPPIN' halloween makeup tutorials on YouTube. However... I am the official Grinch of Halloween.  I don't love the holiday.  I know.  I just don't. I worked as a princess and dress up character for many years for a children's birthday party company.  I loved that job, the kid's reactions to ...

Burt’s Bees Just Stepped Up Their Lip Game.

Burt's Bees just released these lip crayons and Holy Heck. Nitty gritty details:  $8.99 each, 100% natural, available in six shades, easy to find in drugstores and online.

Lover.ly Collab + GGG “Brides Just Wanna Have Fun” Makeup

I have been super lucky to get to attend not one, but two of my close friend's weddings this year.  At each wedding we danced all night and gave the bartenders a decent workout.  Both weddings were beyond fun and so memorable in different ways.

Just a reminder. You are lovely.  Truly. I've been doing a lot of makeup on other people lately.  I was lucky enough to get to do makeup on a movie (agh!!!!) and have been doing a lot of makeup sessions for head shots and special events.

Makeup For Strawberry Blondes: The Fancy Pants Edition

Have you ever done your makeup and tried a new product in a new shade and thought this looks a little off but Time Waits For No Man so you just stick with it and kind-of-not-like-it all day?  Me too.  But I've also left the house in makeup I loved so much that I never ...
