Wedluxe features another bride I worked with!

I had the great pleasure to work with Lindsay, and meet her charming husband Jason this past summer. It is no wonder her wedding is featured in this Winter/Spring 2008 issue of Wedluxe - she is breathtaking. I applied makeup on the bride as well as her mom, and 5 attendants. Lindsay wanted a "Red Carpet" Glam look with rich golds, bronzes, long lashes and pale glossy lips.
They make a great couple. I wish them a life of happiness and good fortune.

Plan a decadent Beverly Hills getaway...

I just got back from a 12 day vacation/ business trip to Palm Desert & Los Angeles. I must admit that I am somewhat intoxicated with all the Hollywood glam. I love shopping in Beverly Hills, enjoy lunch at the Ivy and cocktails at the Polo Lounge. If you want to treat yourself to a fabulous weekend with your hubby, or best gal pal, here's the lowdown..
Plan a 3 night stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel with all it's rich fabulous movie star history. Right now their rates are $335 US per night.
Have brunch at the pool. I recommend the eggs Benedict, best I have ever tasted and only $15. Enjoy lunch or drinks at the infamous Polo Lounge, where I was waiting in line beside none other than Avril Lavigne and her entourage. Shop till you drop in Beverly Hills on Rodeo and Robertson (even just to window shop).
Then really indulge with a hair cut. I was treated to one of the best hair cuts ever at the Ken Paves Salon - only $125. My stylist Larry, was funny, charming (and oh so handsome) and made me feel like a queen for 1 1/2 hours. He just returned from Chicago where he worked on Oprah's show "100 Makeover in 48 hours" (view video at Oprah, showing Larry working with Ken Paves team). As the blinds were being drawn, he whispered that it may get crazy for a while - Lindsay Lohan was due to arrive!

Makeup so pure you can sleep in it!

I just returned from sunny Los Angeles. Beverly Hills is an exciting shopping area to jump start your fashion sense, and spy celebrities. While there I fine tuned my makeup knowledge, and I do believe I found something fabulous!
If I said I found a foundation that is good for your skin, looks completely natural yet provides coverage, controls shine, has a SPF of 15, is fragrance and chemical free and completely affordable, would you be interested? If so, email me and I'll provide details.The product is not available in Canada. I am certain my clients will love the sheer look and natural feel!
