How to look bright eyed...
My Wakeup Makeup Trick is to use an Inner Rim Brightener by Tarte Cosmetics to line the inner rim of the lower lash! The Treatment I recommend is the anti-puff roller ball eye cream by Garnier to de-puff and hydrate!
How to get a radiant complexion...
My favorite Trick is to use a gel highlighter by Becca Cosmetics- my absolute favorite! The Treatment: a Pumpkin Facial you can make at home!
How to achieve Va-Va-Voom Hair...
The Trick: A high powered texturizing spray by Oribe called Dry Texturizing Spray and the Treatment: Schwarzkopf's Blonde Me Intense Treatment.

|Using Creamy Glow in Pravella on Carrie Keagan of VH1|
If you're a makeup artist or just always dreamed of being one, chances are you have one (or ALL!) of his genius makeup books... but do you have his beauty products? If the answer is no, you should take a field trip to your local Sephora or select department stores and change that. Seriously, I'm loving the Celestial Bronzing Veil in Tropical Days and Nights, The Creamy Glow in Pravella (but all colors are worth getting!) and of course the Sensual Concealer... yes, even foundation can be sexy!
Thank you Kevyn Aucoin for being an inspirational artist and for being brave enough to chase your dreams and pave the way for other artists in pursuit of their bliss. His legacy and exquisite work live on as his beauty brand continues to inspire and equip makeup mavens around the world.

This is my submission for the NYX Cosmetics FACE Awards competition! I often attend Fashion Week and as I was browsing through all the beautiful images of the makeup backstage, I fell in love with the Roberto Cavalli look and thought- YES- this is the look I'll recreate for NYX!
Of course I had to change it a bit to make it my own, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I hope you enjoy it too and pick up a few ideas!
Thank you to my beautiful model, Eva Avery! I just love doing makeup on her pretty face.
Supermodel Lily Donaldson rocked this look on the Cavalli runway, and because she has such large, deep set eyes... it looked genius on her. I would love to create a look like this for Lady Gaga... you know, something fresh and feminine but colorful- in a water color sort of way. This look is romantic and bold all at the same time.
More videos and tutorials to come. I have definitely caught the beauty vlogger bug :-)

This was an EPIC night. I had the honor of working with celebrity Makeup Artist, Sharon Gault and Celebrity Hair Stylist, Sean James, both artists represented by Opus Beauty and together our team made the beautiful even more beautiful... Our clients: Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Martin Sheen and some of the cast from Glee... to name a few!
I'm all set up and ready to work!
Products I used: Makeup Forever Anti-Shine, All Matte as a base. On the men, Select Cover Up by MAC, and Makeup Forever Very Matte Powders. On the women who weren't on stage, I gave them a more dewy finish and used Makeup Forever HD foundation with Laura Mercier Radiance Tinted Moisturizer as a base.
What a perfect shot of the evening! Sean James working on Brad Pitt, I was so excited to assist him with Mr. Pitt! Martin Sheen finishing up and Matthew Morrison getting powdered.
Me and Key Hair Stylist, Sean James working on one of the producers of the event. She loved it!!
Our Team, with our client list above!
Backstage with Pitt and Clooney... tough day in the office! The Makeup and Hair team were backstage ready to touch up the cast before they headed to the red carpet!
And of course, I had to hit the red carpet as well! This was, in fact, my first red carpet as a brunette!
I did hair for Matthew Morrison from Glee and the beautiful Sally, did his makeup. #teamwork
And for the after party, we had the best view of the night! Mr. George Clooney, looking as debonair as ever.
And to finish the night off, Sally and I took a sassy lil picture with the sweetie pie from Glee, Darren!

I loved being pampered in the Makeup + Hair Trailer. My friend, Laura Augon did my makeup and she did a beautiful job. Being that I played a 'high-maintenance hiker' it was appropriate for me to have my 'face' on. Laura also made sure that I (as a fellow makeup artist) loved my makeup. It was the perfect artist to work with me on my episode. She used a Revlon light reflective moisturizer to prep my skin, Armani foundation, DuWop Cream Blush (applied with a foundation brush) and some other stuff- ya know, a little soft eyeliner, strong yet natural lashes, and a pink lip gloss. She of course was there at every turn, ensuring I looked put together as I wondered through the jungle.
Take a peek at all the wonderful moments we shared behind the scenes.
I'm OBSESSED with my new beauty series.... OBSESSED. Two of the most beautiful things combined, The Art of Makeup + Paradise (aka. my home away from home, Hawaii!) = "Dreaming of Paradise". Take a peek at some of my favorite beauty images after I created an overlay with one of the many beach shots I have... I'm pretty sure you too will be dreaming of paradise once you see these...
