Pump Up the Jam, Pump It Up

I really care about my lashes. Like really. They are naturally very blonde, so I really like to play them up when I put on makeup. The whole ‘two coats of mascara’ thing? Yeah, not a thing in my world! I use the mascara wand to apply and comb my lashes for a process that […]

The Kind of Lovin’ That Can Be So Smooth

I have been wanting to try Botox for a while. And by ‘a while’ I literally mean years. But the good thing about my procrastination is that my forehead just got more lined and creased as I waited! A second baby and being well into my 30s now, all apprehensions I had previously about going […]

Golden Globes 2017 Recap

Get the Look: Emily Ratajkowski’s Emmy Awards Makeup

Get the Look: Elizabeth Olsen’s Allure Magazine Cover

  It’s very rare that I’ll do a breakdown of a magazine cover look, but this one was just too good not to share. I also must really have a thing for blue eyeshadow, because look at the last magazine cover I featured! Ha. Hung Vanngo is one of my favorite celeb MUAs, and he […]

You Make Me Wanna…Paint My Nails and Wear High Heels

  Even though I almost always have my nails painted, I haven’t gone to the nail salon in years. Between moving to a new town, having a baby and having nail products I needed to test for work, I did my own manis a few times and then, it just became a habit. Suddenly, it’s […]

Get the Look: Katie Holmes Met Gala Makeup

Makeup artist Genevieve Herr was inspired by a ‘more modern Cher’ and here’s how she created the look: First, she used Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer followed by Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and […]

The Best and Worst of the Met Gala

Man, if there was ever a time to use the term ‘fashion hangover’, it’s today! When you wake up to literally hundreds of emails (more than the Oscars!), and there is absolutely no way you can even begin to talk about everything you want to….that’s a good night for fashion! So, that means it’s Best […]

The Best and Worst of the White House Corredspondents’ Dinner

So, the White House Correspondents’ dinner was Saturday night. You know, the annual event where all the celebs go to the White House to…correspond. So here’s a rundown of the best and the worst of the night:
