Hey all, I know a bunch of you have been asking to see my updated foundation routine as the last foundation video I recorded was a few years ago. A lot has changed since then from the products I use, coverage I like and tools I use to achieve the look so I listened (see I can listen!) and recorded a new one.

Anyhow, here’s the vid, I hope it helps give you some ideas!

How to Thread your Eyebrows

brow threading 101


Threading has been around for hundreds of years and it’s time we all adopted the practice! Why? Why not! It’s super cost effective, doesn’t take a long time to do and is very easy once you get the hang of it.

If you’ve always wanted to know how to do it, here is how!


brow grooming tools


The toughest part about threading is getting the hang of it. Once you’ve gotten the movements down, I promise you it is super easy and quick to do.

You start by taking a shoulder width length of thread, preferably cotton- polyblends don’t grip the hair as well; and tie the thread into a knot so that you have a loop.

From there you twist the thread about 10 times to give you an ‘X’.


How to thread your eyebrows


To prep your brows, groom them with a spooly brush and trim any long hairs. Using the loose powder, dust the area to absorb any excess oil.

To thread your brows you hold both ends of the loops against your face with your fingers facing towards you. Hold the hand closest to the ceiling tight to your skin and with the other open your loop wider. The thread will catch any hairs and pull them out from the root.

It’ll take a few attempts before you get it right, but once you do, hey watch out now! Have you tried it? Do you have any tips for everyone? If so, leave a comment 😉

How to do a Cut crease eye makeup look

Friday, February 28, 2014 1 0

This has got to be the most popular trend in eye makeup lately, the cut crease look. What that is is when you have a lighter color shadow on your eyelid and a darker in the crease, but the line dividing the two is very defined. It’s a really pretty look and really gets your eyes to pop. I put together a video on how to do a cut crease eye makeup look for you all.

What happens in one of my Makeup Workshops

Tuesday, August 20, 2013 2 0

Ever wanted to learn a little more about makeup techniques and what looks/colors would look best on you? Well you can hire me to conduct a makeup workshop for you! Just get a few of your friends/colleagues together at your home/office and I will take care of the rest.

Here are some pics of a recent workshop I conducted. The ladies were amazing, it was such a fun event! The host had champagne, appy’s and mini cupcakes for her guests!

I start by going through everyone’s makeup bags and filtering through the items that work for them and what they should toss. I give recommendations on what products/colors they should be looking for.

WorkshopAfter that we begin the demo. I do a makeup application on the host of the party, breaking everything down step by step (just like in my tutorials) and make custom suggestions for those that are watching.

Workshop 5We set up little makeup stations for the girls so they can get a chance to practice the look.


Workshop 3After each step the girls, using their makeup they brought with them, repeat the step on themselves. It’s the best way to critique and give tips on how to improve their technique.

Workshop 4 And then voila, the end result, a professional looking application! Doesn’t Elizabeth look amazing? She was definitely an A student 😉

How to get that “lit from within” glow

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 3 0

Ever wonder how celebs show up on red carpets after a 22 hour work day, 7.5 hour flight and still manage to look flawless and glowy, almost as if their skin was lit from within? Here’s a little secret: It’s all in the product.

The best product to achieve this coveted look: The Multiple stick from NARS. It’s a creamy stick that you can apply to eyes, cheeks and lips. It glides on easy, blends beautifully and comes in a variety of shades to suit many different skin tones. Here’s a combo you can try:

-Apply multiple in Palm Beach under the cheekbones, on the temples, along the jawline and at the hairline

-Depending on your skin tone, try either Copacabana, Luxor or South Beach as a highlighter along the top of the cheekbones, down the center of your nose and along the cupids bow of the lips

-Finish off with multiple in Orgasm on the cheeks

The resulting look is glowy, soft and pretty. Try it and let me know what shade is your fav multiple!

Blush Techinque

Thursday, November 26, 2009 1 0

I know when I first started makeup my biggest challenge was blush. Where do you place it, how much do you put on, which color do you choose? Here is a technique that may help you with your blush struggles:


1. Start with your contour. Take some bronzer and apply it just under the cheekbones, sweeping it horizontally starting in front of the ear, and stopping about mid eye. You will notice that your cheekbones slope downwards, follow this angle.

2. Choose a blush color that goes with your lip color.

3. Load your brush with the color, but before you take it to your cheeks, rub a little off onto a tissue.

4. Smile. This will allow you to see the apples of your cheek, and this is where the color goes.

5. Sweep a little remaining color across cheekbones. There shouldn’t be a gap between the bronzer and blush.


This is the technique that I use, everyone has their own way of doing things, but for me this works best.

Blending Shadow

Tuesday, November 17, 2009 4 0

If you are using a bright colored eye shadow, or one that is much darker than your skin as the color in the crease of your eye, you may want to use a blending shadow to give a more, well, blended look. What I mean by this is to take a color close to your skin tone, but a half shade darker and apply it just at the outer edges of the shadow you applied in your crease. For fair skin I recommend (these are all MAC shades) Wedge or Omega, medium skin tones can use Soba and for darker skin use Cork. Apply the color with a very light hand and use a blending brush, such as the #217 from MAC, then apply your highlight color under the arch of your eyebrow. Go ahead and give it a try.
