New Toy!

I just stopped into West Coast Beauty Supply the other day to pick up product and couldn’t resist. For years I have been working with less than awesome cheap blow dryers from Walgreen’s and I just couldn’t take it anymore.  The newest addition to my hair kit is the super light weight Solano 3500 lite Dryer.  Its an Ionic dryer which cuts drying time in half and minimizes static electricity in the hair.  Infrared heat dries hair from the inside out for overall healthier hair. It has a 3 level heat switch and a cold shot…..AND….sigh….IT IS LIGHT!!!!! I love it. It barely adds any weight to my hair kit.  So what now?  Off to wash my mane so that I can test out my fabulous dryer!  Blow out anyone?


Is It Airbrushed?

My recent Bride. Kaiya Reeve had done a trial with me almost a year before her big day. Her skin was flawless. The type of skin every woman wants.  Initially we had gone with the airbrush foundation for a more mat finish, however we decided on a different look for the day of just weeks before the wedding.

I used the Luminous Silk Foundations by Armani and blended a cream blush color that I created using the  Makeup Forever Flash Color Palette.  I then added a touch of her cheek color to a  neutral lip shade by Tom Ford called “Indian Rose”.  The results were a very flawless “perfect” dewy skin. I couldn’t be happier with how amazing she looked up close and in photos.

Luminous Silk...

July 18th, 2012

I woke up this morning to a big package on my doorstep. BIG SMILE!     I decided to splurge and add another high end line to my kit….Armani’s luminous silk foundations.  After doing a lot of research on a few high end lines, I hit makeup counters and got samples of a few different lines I was considering, and Armani won by a long shot.  Sure its pricey at about $60 a bottle (I bought 8), however this sheer foundation leaves the skin looking absolutely flawless.  What I love most about it adds such a beautiful glow to the skin without it being to heavy or greasy.  Not only does this foundation look amazing up close but it photographs really well.  =)
