My Makeup Revolution...

Growing up, Friday night was always my favorite night of the week. School was out for two whole days (an eternity), Dad would usually bring home a pizza from Ricardo's Pizzeria around the corner (aka. my favorite food) and Family Matters (Remember Urkle?) would come on around eight.  But the best thing about Fridays was that it was the one night of the week I was allowed to "play" with the makeup I'd been collecting with almost every allowance.  

I wasn't allowed to wear makeup outside of the house until I turned 17 (a little mascara, blush and eyeliner was all even then).  Mom would say, "You'll have plenty of time to wear all that stuff.  What's the rush?"  She was right (naturally).  And now???  Well, let's just say I've been making up for lost time ever since...


In this picture, I'm wearing Denim Shimmer Ink gel eyeliner by Bobbi Brown which I smudged to give it a softer more smoky look, as well as the brand's new sheer lip color in Hot Raspberry --- so perfect for summer!

It's been more than twenty years since then, and today as a professional makeup artist and educator  --- everyday is "Friday"; and I get to "play" in makeup more than I could have ever dreamed...

Join my makeup revolution (#makeuprevolution) as I set out to teach women everywhere how EASY makeup can be through my own how-to videos, insightful interviews where industry experts and real-life women alike share their beauty secrets, and a wealth of other blog posts --- all with the goal of helping you SHAPE UP YOUR MAKEUP!  


Isn't it high time you, 
exercise your right to be beautiful
