Gold & Nude Lips: Holiday makeup

Good good morning!

Nude is usually my everyday Color when it comes to my lips, but I some times feel so blan wearing the same color over and over. To spice it up a bit for the holidays and Winter, I love to add a hint of silver or gold to the center of the lips. You can do this to any lipstick color as well just to dress it up a bit. I think it looks best with pinks and nudes though! So if you are wanting to learn a fun trick to add little sparkle into your look, keep reading…


lip liner: MAC “Soar” lip pencil – outline around the lips with this mauve nude liner to add more volume to your lips.

Lipgloss: apply Dose Of Colors in “Undressed” to the entire lips and blend with a lip brush.

Lip shimmer: Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre- this ultra shimmer liquid is amazing for anywhere on the face or body for makeup. I especially love it for the lips. Drip a little on your pointer finger and press onto bottom lips and lightly smack lips together to apply to top lip!

Golden nude lips!

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Review

Hello beauties!

I have recently been love the new TF Perfecting Foundation! Not only is it top of the line in quality but it is perfectly gorgeous when applied to the skin. As a foundation lover I look for three key things when trying out new brands, first- texture , second- how long it holds to the skin , and last- how it photographs. See my full review on this gorgeous Tom Ford creation below! XOX


Traceless Perfecting Foundation is perfect for the following skin types: Normal / Combo / Dry

- if you have oily skin you can still wear this but you will just need to touch up more often because this is a luminous finish to the skin.

How long does it last on skin: truthfully it stayed on for about 8 hours, I have had other foundations stay on longer but with this formula I felt like I needed to touch up once and then I was good for the rest of the night. I like to use a translucent powder over top of this because I felt the foundation was already pigmented enough!

Photograph well? Yes indeed! I did not retouch any part of my skin in the photo above And felt like my skin looked flawless and pores looked small and smooth. I would definitely recommend this for those who are taking photos or getting married.

Price range: 70-80$ yes it I higher price foundation but it is also one of the highest quality products I own and is made with very nice ingredients.

Tools to apply: I love to use the Beauty Blender to apply this foundation. I feel like it gives the best application and finish and leaves the skin looking covered but still breathable!

You can buy this online or at your closest Neiman Marcus :)

90′s Lips…

Hello darling!

When wearing a darker eye I usually tend to stay away from pairing it with dark lips, but when I saw this gorgeous pencil, I couldn’t resist! Frankie Rose has an array of gorgeous lip liners, which also wear great as lipstick replacements. Sometimes I don’t feel the need to wear anything but lip liner and a little gloss, especially with these the liners are as pigmented as an actual lipstick. As for lip colors, the 90′s are making a return with the burnt brown hues and overly lined Jenner lips! I thought I would share with you all my favorite at the moment, it is called “Apple Spice”



This is a color that most wouldn’t pick first, but when applied to the lips it is a perfect burnt apricot brown dreamsicle! I think it looks lovely with a classic winged liner & copper, plum, brown shadows! It is the perfect rust hue that looks great on lighter skin tones. I have yet to try it on darker skin, but I am sure it will be more orange toned on darker skin.

1. Outline your lips with the Apple Spice liner, be sure to define the cupids bow.
2. Fill in the entire lips with the spice pencil, apply two layers so it is vibrant enough.
3. Apply your favorite clear gloss to the center.

{If you are a fan of lipstick as well, FR also carries “Apple Spice” in a lipstick form as well. BUY HERE!

Happy Hump Day <3

I was lucky enough to glammify this gorgeous blue eyed bridesmaid at her sisters wedding last weekend! Ariel is one of those beauties that you cannot keep your eyes off, no makeup needed for her!

Feeling Like Fall: Orange Eyes…

 Fall is in full spin here in Utah and its just another reason for me to pull out my Autumn toned shadows! I am usually not a fan of orange or red tones on the eyes but I thought I would give them a try and I surprisingly loved how they turned out! I love to change my makeup style depending on what I wear, where I am going and what season it is. Fall usually calls for dark lips, smokey plum, burgundy, and copper eyes. Today I am showing you this brassy orange smokey eye and peach-tan lips! For any color requests, please email me at :)


 Orange eyes… You may be hesitant at first to use this color but I promise once you blend it with browns and golds it looks amazing!
  1. Apply a primer to the eyes for a smooth base: Tarte Clean Slate Creasless
  2. Apply a bright orange shadow all over the lid and into the crease: NARS Duo in “Isolde” - apply the copper orange all over lid. Apply the shimmer gold in center of the eye on top of the orange.
  3. Smoke out the outer and inner brow bone corner of the eye with a brown: Brown Script from MAC in inner corner | Embark from MAC blended on outer crease and lid.
  4. Black liquid liner is to be used on the upper lash line. Draw it thicker in the middle of the eye to make the eyes appear “larger” and wing it out at the end.
  5. Apply black liner to the inner waterline and blend it out with the Embark shadow and then the shimmer gold from NARS over that.
  6. Lashes: Esqido in “Lashmopolitan” - love these! These flare out a lot at the end and are very long, use whatever lashes you desire!

Happy Halloween Dolls!

Happy Halloween my loves!

This week has been filled with so many Halloween makeup appointments and of course the most requested look is the skeleton! I wanted to share with you all my favorite one from this week that I created on the gorgeous Jessica for a spooky shoot! I created a more glam shimmering skeleton face to switch it up from the usual matte black and white! If you are this for Halloween and need to know the best products to use, see what I used below! Hope you all have a fun & safe night wherever you are!


Glam skeleton face…
What you need: Black liner, White crayon or white face powder, Gray eyeshadow, Silver eyeshadow, black eyeshadow, White shimmer eyeshadow, Red lipstick, Blending brush.

Step one: Fill in the face and neck with a white crayon- I used “Milk” from NYX and a sponge to blend it into the skin.

Step 2: Draw out the lines of the face- I used LA Girl eye prime in “Black” – this is just like a black eyeliner but thicker.
- Draw the jaw
-Draw the nose all the way in with black and sharp points at the top of the bridge
-Draw lines like teeth over the mouth
- Fill in the entire eye with black {this will be blended}
- Draw angry brow lines above the eyes
-Draw a defined jaw line
-Draw black horizontal lines on each side of the neck like a vertibre

Step 3: Shading. With a small blending brush, blend in all the lines with a black eyeshadow to soften and diffuse the look.

Step 4: Gray shading. Blend on the sides of the lines with a gray shadow to create a more “real” effect of the skeleton.

Step 5: Blend in the eyes. Blend a black glitter eyeshadow in the entire eye sockets to give it a more pretty look.

Step 6: Glam it. To add a more glamorous look to the skull I add A LOT of highlighter to the entire look.
- MAC Whisper of Gilt to the cheekbones
-Lorac Pro 2 “Silver” All over the face and center of eyelid for shimmer
Lorac Pro 2 “Snow” to the inner corners of eyes, nose, and to fake the teeth
Step 7: Lastly, add your favorite hint of lipstick to the inner center of the lips. I used Lorac in “Jetsetter” – a nice plum red!

Halloween Makeup: Cleopatra Resurrected

We are just days away from Hallows Eve and I thought I should share with you a quick sexy look that you can create in 30 minutes! Cleopatra, once the Pharaoh goddess of Egypt, has been resurrected from her tomb but not completely mortal… She has come back half mummified in search of her love, Marc Antony! This sexy look combines sexy and scary all in one. If you are sick of the same costumes every year, try my twist on this historical beauty!



Lips: Deep red and plum lipsIMG_8724
Liner: LA Girl Endless in “Dark Plum”
line your lips with a dark maroon liner.
Lipstick/gloss: Dose of Colors “Burning Love” fill in the lips with a royal red lipstick or gloss.
Gloss: LA Girl Glazed in “Tempt” Fill in the center of the lips with a darker shade of red to create an ombre look.

blog44Face: For this look I created an overly glowing face with no blush and heavy contour to define the cheekbones…

Foundation: Dior Star in #23 – apply with a dry beauty blender for a more full coverage look.
Concealer: Maybelline Age Rewind- Apply under the eyes and to the chin to brighten and conceal.
Powder: Tarte Provocateur Mineral powder – Set your face with this light powder. 417NSPEH2wL._SY355_
Highlight: elf “Moonlight Pearls” – this super affordable highlighter is gorgeous for the cheekbones, it is a bright white shimmer.
Contour: Kat Von D Everlasting bronzer in Shady Business to contour.
Brows: Anastasia brow wiz in brunette
Eyes: Egyptian Cleopatra – this glitter smokey cat wing is perfect for creating the sultry look Cleopatra always had. If you desire to do it on both eyes go for it, for the mummified Cleo one eye is just fine, and cover the other in bandages {aka white stockings ;)}

Shadow base: Start by applying a white shadow or primer to the entire eyelid for a base for the shadow/glitters. Mac Painterly !02-hipster
Shadow Crease: Apply a soft brown to the crease of your eye: MakeupGeek in “Hipster” | this is your transitional blending color.
Shadow Crease #2: Apply a dark color to the crease over the brown to darken up the eye{s} | I used MAC “Velvet Black Tied”.
Eyeliner: AOM Cosmetics extreme art liner- draw a thick black liner as if you are drawing a cat-wing but extend it out on both ends further than you usually would. In the Eyptian times they like to extend the inner corner almost like an actual cat eye, this will elongate and give a sexy feel to the look! Apply this same black liner to the bottom lash line under the waterline to define the eye more. 01LA-GP365
Blue liner: LA Girl glide gel liner in “Aquatic” - apply this sky blue to the inner waterline and under the outer corner wing.
Gold liner: NYX Mechanical pencil in “Gold”- Apply a gold liner on the bottom lash line in the inner half of the eye to brighten underneath.
Glitter: Girlactik sparkles in “Champagne” – Apply the glitter with the Girlactik base. Pack this rose gold glitter on just the eyelid for that sassy Egyptian glow, avoid the crease area. Keeps eyes closed for 10 seconds before opening so that the glitter dries.
Lashes: Huda Beauty in “Giselle” and individual “Alyssa” lashes stacked for length- apply these with tweezers towards the end of the giselle lashes for ultimate length. Huda Beauty lash glue used.

What to wear with this: A white dress that you dont care about much and can smudge some black or gray shadow on to make it look only/ dirty/ dead. I used old white stockings and cut them in strips for the mummy bandages… blog2

Perfecting Face…

This last Saturday I was able to get a few gorgeous ladies ready for their Miss Utah pageant headshots, including the gorgeous Cassie. This greek beauty not only had the most gorgeous features but the most easy eyes and face to apply makeup to! When it comes to headshots for pageants most photographers use bright lighting, so contouring and highlighting is a must. I went for a more bronzed look to the skin with a touch of mauve blush and bright peach lips. Today I am sharing with you the products I used to create her flawless face. I will share all other details to this look in my part 2 post! If you are interested in booking me for pageant makeup lessons or head-shot makeup, please email me at

Perfecting Face…
When it comes to flawless face makeup, the key is to start out with a clean and exfoliated base. I suggest using anything with small beads that will exfoliate dead skin and prep your face for your primer. I always get asked how I create a smooth flawless skin base while also doing a medium to full coverage look and it is all about the tools you are using and how. Blending is the most important technique when it comes to the face application, slow movements will allow the product to manipulate on the skin and move where it needs to…

#1 Primer: DermaQuest Perfecting Primer – This oil absorbing primer was made to minimize the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. It also creates a smooth flawless base for your foundation to glide and lay on. It is suggested for all skin types and is perfect for acne-prone clients as well. Apply to the skin with your fingers, blender, or a brush. IMG_3891

#2 Foundation: NEW* Dior Star Studio Makeup in 031 Sand- this is a brand new foundation that I am using on clients, it is a full coverage fluid and perfect for photography/shoots that are using artificial lighting. The Dior Star foundation is perfect for those who are in the spotlight and want to have that perfect flawless looking skin all the time. I have been a fan of Dior foundations for a while, but this one definitely blows the others out of the water with its brightening effects and long lasting durability. Applied to the skin with Beauty Blender \Cle-de-Peau-Correcteur-Visage-Concealer

Blemish coverage: The next step is for covering blemishes. My holy grail acne cover concealer is the Clea De Peau “Beige” OR depending on your skin tone. I apply this over the blemishes and lightly blend in with the flat concealer brush from same brand. These two products paired together cover anything seamlessly and no one will ever know anything was there in the first place! Yes they are expensive but worth every penny!

#3 Setting: LA Girl HD Pro Powder - Apply this with a puff or sponge to all the places that have been retouched with concealer/ wet foundation. It is important to do this immediately after to prevent creasing or build up. This powder is a Silica mineral powder so it is very finely milled and lightweight when applied.

#4 Concealer: Eve Pearl Salmon Conceal was used under the eyes to balance out any darkness and brighten up. You can apply this with your ring finger lightly under the eyes up to the temples. I then like to apply a brighter concealer over top, Tarte in “Light” is great to give that Kim Kardashian bright-eye look! Set this with the same powder.

#5 Blush: Laura Geller “Roseberry” – this mauve/pink shimmer blush is perfect to add a rosy hint to the cheeks and still stay looking natural. Apply with a medium powder brush in circular motion to the apples and up towards cheekbones. I focused on staying on the apples of the cheeks with her blush here. xMedium_Tan.jpg.pagespeed.ic.hIrDI_SCms xTANTODEEP.jpg.pagespeed.ic.b6iuB-urXJ

#6 Contour: Anastasia Beverly Hills contour powders in “Golden Peach” & “Nutmeg” were blended and used to create her perfected contour on her nose, forehead and cheekbones. If you have yet to try ABH contour powders, you are missing out. If you are new to contour and highlight, check out her site HERE

#7 Highlight: Hourglass Ambient “Mood Light” – this super soft pink highlight gives your skin the most natural yet glowing effect. For those who are a fan of the J-glow but don’t want to go overboard, Hourglass Ambient highlighters are perfect for you. Apply to all high points of the face that you want to stand out.

#8 Setting Spray: Last step is to set the face with a setting spray to hold your face makeup in place all day! Skindinavia No More Shine Spray will be your best friend when you need perfect makeup for photos, the last thing you need is a greasy looking face for the camera! Spray the face three times and fan with your hand, instant matte skin!

I hope you all enjoyed this quick makeup tutorial on how to get that perfect looking face makeup, I will be sharing part 2 soon…
