Next, I wanted to share some pro artist makeup tips to achieving the perfect Valentine Red lips, without the dreaded smearing or mask rub-off!

So first we are going to line the lips with either a clear lip liner, or a nude liner.  This will create a barrier for the lipstick so it won’t bleed outside your lipline.

Next, dap a bit of concealer onto the lips.  This works as a primer and will help adhere the lipstick and keep it from budging.  

Now just grab your favorite RED lip color and apply.

Lastly, you can “set” your lipstick by peeling a tissue into 1-ply and placing it over the lips and stippling translucent loose powder over them.  This will keep your pout looking perfect all night long.

New Year’s Eve Makeup Tutorial

The most requested tutorial I get is on the “Smokey Eye”.  For most people it can be rather intimidating dipping into those grays and blacks.  Don’t worry!  It’s actually a pretty simple eye look to master.

As with any eye look, it is always important to remember your eye shape and apply shadows where it compliments them. For this particular look, we will be using dark tones to add intensity to the eyes. 

First you cover the mobile lid with a dark, cream shadow.  Cream shadows are great for adding dimension and they work really well as a primer, keeping shadow from creasing.  I like to top the cream shadow with a similar color, only darker.  Be sure to blend this color into the crease, and just above.

Next, you can add more dimension and shape to your eye look by adding a dark, black shadow to the outer corners of the eye.  I also like to run this color under the bottom third of my lash line.  It gives a nice finish and connects the top and bottom lashline.

I also like to add a pop of silver over the center of the lid.  I don’t have big round eyes, so this helps my flat lids look like they have a more rounded shape to them.

Next, highlighting the tearduct area can really add to this look.  Creating a brightness and wide-awake look.  Any shimmery Vanilla color will do the trick.  Just dot it on the inside corners of the eyes.

Eyeliner and lashes are a must with any “Bold” eye makeup look.  I love a winged liner and strip lashes. Be sure to add mascara BEFORE lashes, and AFTER.  This will give you a seamless lashline.

Lastly, when going bold on the eyes, it’s important to balance out the facial features and go light everywhere else.  This means a lighter lipstick in nudes or light pinks looks best.

Sleigh Full of Beauty

Holiday Shopping for the Beauty Lover in your life? I’ve got you covered! From skincare, makeup, and luscious locks. These products are sure to bring joy to everyone on your list.

My first gift is from Bl’eau. This unique Canadian skincare line sources their clay from the ancient glaciers of British Columbia, which is enriched by the cyclical flow of ocean and glaciers, and it is loaded with over 60 unique minerals and rare elements. It’s naturally powerful properties  help to detoxify, rehydrate, refine your pores and yes, moisturize skin. All of their clay masks are made from Canadian glacial oceanic clay, including their signature product, Glacial Oceanic Clay Mask.

This mask is nothing like the other clay masks I’ve used.  This one doesn’t get tight, dry or irritating.  Instead it soothes, refreshes, and hydrates my skin, leaving it soft and glowing. They’ve also included Glacial Mineral Water in their Hydrate Collection which features their Glacial Mineral Toner, Hydrating Glacial Moisturizing Emulsion, and their Hydrating Glacial Moisturizing Cream.  This collection ranges from $19-59$ and can be found at BleauBeauty.com

Next up is my gift of Makeup from Macy’s!  With deals all month long, you can snag some of my favorite brands like NARS, Nudestix, Stila and more!  This new eyeshadow palette from NARS called After Glow is the perfect gift for all skin tones.  Also the Magnetic Nude Glimmers from Nudestix are incredible! They can be used as a  luminous skin brightener and highlighter for eyes, cheeks and lips that sets for all day waterproof wear.  For more amazing makeup products, Check out Macys.com

Now for the gift of beautiful hair!  Founded by hair icon, Guy Tang, this styling line was created to enhance and prolong all hair color. Previously only available to the professional, this line is now available on Ulta.com for consumers to purchase for the first time! Everything you need to re-create Guy Tang’s iconic looks seen across all your social media platforms. Prices range from $22.50-$32.00 The #mydentity Styling Product Line includes #MyConfidant Shampoo and Conditioner, #MyControl Spray and two finishing products, an oil and a shine spray.

As a professional makeup artist and hairstylist, When I’m on set I HAVE to make sure my clients’ hair holds it’s style while looking shiny and fabulous.  This #MyControl Medium Sculpting Spray is NOT your regular hairspray!  It doesn’t feel sticky, wet, or hard, This super fine mist spray creates a touchable moveable hold you’ll love. 

I use this to hold my daughters bouncy blonde curls.  I have really dark hair, and I love that this spray doesn’t have a white cast that mutes the vibrancy of the hair, but instead it adds shine and makes hair look super healthy. Head over to Ulta.com to pick up your Guy Tang #mydentity Styling  Line.

Now to effortlessly create beachy waves, perfectly defined spiral curls, full-bodied glamour waves, and everything in between look no further than T3 Micro  with advanced heat styling tech, exceptional results, and—always—beautiful, healthy hair.

This curling wand trio features everything you need to change your look in a snap: the T3 Convertible Base—the foundation of the T3 Convertible Collection—and three interchangeable straight and tapered ceramic wands. One base, three barrels, endless styling possibilities.

I love styling my daughters hair with the 1″ straight wand barrel.  It gives her the bouncy curls she loves, and I love that it doesn’t damage her hair. My go to signature look is soft, loose waves and with the larger 1 ½” Straight Wand Barrell, it’s easier than ever to swap out the barrels.  I also love the convenience of having multiple styling tools with only ONE base!  Saves so much space, and is another favorite thing of mine when working on set.

Holiday Makeup Tutorial

The holiday season is my favorite time to shop for NEW Beauty products.  Brands tend to launch limited edition makeup collections and always have something fun and glittery.

In this Holiday Makeup Tutorial I wanted to focus on a softer, less dramatic look, since most of us will probably be spending the Holidays at-home and not out on the town. (insert sobs here)

As a makeup artist, the most important part of any look is the application!  Using the right tools and brushes can help to achieve the perfect, blended makeup look.  

My favorite brushes right now are from MODA Brush.  They have so many styles to choose from and right now they have their metallic collections just in time for the Holiday Season. These are 5-piece Full-Face Kits that give you all the necessary brushes for a complete makeup look.  They also come in the perfect brush holder which includes a lid, so you can take them to go as well! They are $49.99 and can be purchased at ModaBrush.com

I’m a big fan of Huda Beauty and they just released their 18 eyeshadow palette in “Naughty.”  This is a gorgeous palette complete with a variety of textures, finishes, and colors.  These are flattering shades on any skin tone. Right now this palette is available at Sephora and HudaBeauty.com for $67.

I ALWAYS add lashes to my makeup looks, and this particular look had me reaching for my KISS Blowout Collection lashes in PageBoy.  These are the perfect flirty lashes without being too dramatic.  I applied them with Kiss’ new Lash Glue Liner in black.  Such an easy-to-use application to falsies!  Simply line your lashes with the eyeliner and then press your lashes onto the line!  No mess, no sticky fingers, no problem!

To brighten up the face I used NARS Blush Duo to add contour and blush to my cheeks for some added color.

To finish the look I used Fenty Beauty’s NEW Limited Edition Gloss Bomb Mini Lipgloss Kit.  This kit is $36 and is only here for the holidays!  They have 4 beautiful shades of lipgloss and they taste good too!  You can find this kit at FentyBeauty.com

Wishing you all the best this Holiday Season.

At-Home Spa Treatments

One of my favorite things to do is take an evening for myself and pamper my skin. I LOVE facial masks and I use them at least twice a week. When I discovered there was a NEW Microcurrent Technology Mask that absorbs 6 times deeper into the skin, I HAD to have it!

Franz Skincare is the first to offer this Microcurrent Technology in their dual mask systems. They harness the power of the ocean by utilizing water to create tiny, waves across the skin, allowing the nourishing ingredients to be absorbed way more efficiently than masks of the past!

Franz Thomas developed the Franz Diffusion Cell method. This technique tests skin’s permeability of key ingredients. The more efficiently nutrients reach your skin, the more effective your treatments are.

Ranging from $40-$100 these masks are available online at FranzSkincareUSA.com

But if you’re lucky enough to be reading this BEFORE November 15th, I have a discount code for you to score 30% OFF your online purchase! Use Code: FALL30 and stock up on your favorites! (also these are great gift ideas for the Holidays)

FranzSkincareUSA.com

Now, let’s talk dry skin. UGH! This time of year has my feet and hands cracking and in desperate need of hydration, which is why my next product is a must-have for anyone suffering the same issues: Miss Spa’s Exfoliating Foot Treatment and Deep Therapy Hand Treatment are a game changer!

You can completely transform your skin with these little booties and gloves. Enriched with flower oils, the deep therapy hand treatment nourishes the hands and even softens your cuticles! The peppermint and glycolic acid foot treatment sloughs off any dead skin on your feet, and reveals fresh, soft skin. (No more rough skin snagging on the sheets!)

These beauty treatments start at just $6, so you can grab a bunch and make sure your skin stays hydrated throughout the winter months! Miss Spa is sold at most major retailers, but you can also pick them up online at Miss-Spa.com

Now, go take some time to pamper yourself before the hustle and bustle of the Holidays! After all, you deserve it! 😉

Beauty Essentials Under $35

Segment Featured on CBS Affiliate – Fresh Living

I love it when I find beauty products that actually work and don’t break the bank! These are some must-have essentials:

Olay Regenerist Retinol24 MAX Night Collection. This powerhouse formula offers 20% more of Olay’s Retinol 24 Complex and delivers beautiful results! I have been using the Night Moisturizer in this collection for about one month and I can visibly see my skin is smoother in texture, and brighter in tone.

Olay’s proprietary combination of Vitamin B3, plus Olay’s most transformative Retinoid Complex, including Retinol and Retinyl Propionate, make this collection a must-have for anyone looking to improve their skin quality.

Each product is under $35 and can be purchased at Olay.com or at your local retailer.

Next, I just had to share my love for The Wet Brush! For years I have been using their Original Detangler Brush and have loved the results. Did you know most damage occurs to the hair when it’s wet? Stop using the wrong brush and breaking your hair! With a wide variety of brushes you can definitely find the solution for your hair. I LOVE using the Shower Brush Detangler. Yes, you use it in the shower. It really helps keep the hair smooth and free from those dreaded tangles!

Also included in their line is their Speed Dry brushes. These help aid in drying your hair and help circulate the air from your blow dryer, so you can “Speed” up your dry time.

I highly recommend these brushes! I have loved using these on my both my daughters, and I even have the mini detangler brush in my purse for those brushing touch-ups!

You can grab your perfect Wet Brush at SalonCentric.com or at most major retailers.

Lastly, don’t forget to grab a pack of dual-tipped cotton applicators too! These little guys are perfect for everyday beauty uses. I use them to correct makeup mistakes, apply creams, touch-up lipstick, fix nail polish, and so much more! At under $5 these are a must to keep handy on your vanity.

No more “MASKNE”

Watch my TV Segment on Fresh Living to get all the tips!

At this point it looks like wearing Masks everywhere we go is the new norm, and as we are just getting used to it, we now have to deal with those pesky skin issues like “maskne”, (acne caused by wearing a mask). So what can we do about it? Incorporate some new things into our beauty routines:

My Dermatician Anti-Microbial Skin Mist – $28

First off, let’s talk germs, bacteria and viruses! Yuck, but guess what? They thrive under your mask…perfect humid environment to run amuck and cause skin issues. Which brings me to MyDermatician.com and their NEW Anti-Microbial Skin Mist. This hypochlorous acid formulation kills germs and viruses on your skin, safely! Totally safe to spray on your face, your kids, your pets (yes, spray your pets paws to eliminate unwanted odor and bacteria which will end up on your bed if you have a dog like mine who refuses to sleep anywhere but on my pillow.) I keep a bottle in my purse so when I’m out and about in public spaces, I know I can safely eliminate any bacteria and viruses which may have landed on my skin. This helps prevent those nasty acne flare ups too! Way better than trying to slather hand sanitizer on your face! (BTW- Don’t ever do that! Sooo bad for your skin and not to mention, it stings like a beast!) So head over to MyDermatician.com and grab your bottle for $28.

Wearing more makeup on your mask than your face? Time to switch brands!

This next issue is for all you makeup lovers out there, like me. We refuse to stop wearing our makeup just because we have to wear a mask. However, it’s pretty nasty when you take your mask off and it has more makeup on it than your face! So here are some tips you can incorporate to keep that makeup on your face and not on your mask:

Switching your foundation to Covergirl’s OutLast All Day Wear Stay Fabulous foundation. This liquid formula goes on super smooth and sets to a beautiful matte finish that stays put! It is transfer resistant and great for mask wearers.

Covergirl also has a line of Outlast Liquid Lipsticks which provide intense color with maximum staying power! No worry about this lipstick rubbing off!

CoverGirl Outlast Foundation and Liquid Lipsticks: CoverGirl.com

You can also add use a makeup setting spray, like Skindinavia’s Bridal Finishing Mist. I’ve been using this formula for years on my clients because it:

  • Prevents color shifting and fading
  • Keeps makeup in place all day
  • Works up to 16 hours
  • Oil-free
  • Paraben-free and hypoallergenic
  • And like all Skindinavia products, vegan and cruelty-free

Grab a bottle today!

$29 at Skindinavia.com

Lastly, oil blotting papers are a huge help to remove any surface oils and/or makeup sitting on top of the skin. Don’t have any? No worries! Grab a kleenex and separate the layers of tissue so you have just one. Use it to spot treat excess oil and you’re ready to wear your mask without worry of makeup rubbing off!

Fall Beauty Finds!

Rich Moisturizer, Superhero Cosmetics & the first FDA-Cleared Transparent Face Mask!

Great skin is always #1 on my list, however I don’t always have hundreds of dollars to spend on skincare.  I have LOVED the OLAY Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Face Moisturizer. As we enter the dry, fall and winter months here in Utah, our skin needs a potent moisturizer. This one is great because it is non-comedogenic and we can wear our masks over it without fear of getting “Maskne”.  Win!! 

Another great reason to switch to OLAY is that during the month of September they will donate $250 for every limited-edition Camo print jar sold on Walmart.com to SWAN – Service Women’s Action Network- an organization that supports, connects and advocates for servicewomen.  LOVE!

When I saw that Revlon launched a limited-edition Wonder Woman 1984 collection, I totally geeked out!  Normally in September we are headed to FANX to celebrate our beloved superheroes. Since the pandemic has ruined that for us we can at least get our “Superhero Fix” with this beautiful collection featuring the iconic Wonder Woman logo. My fave is the Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse, in Scorpion Red, it will have you feeling “powerful” all day!

Lastly, I get soooo sad when I have to put a mask over my beautiful red lips, and expertly sculpted cheekbones, that I scoured the internet for a fix, and boy did I find it!!  The first ever, FDA-cleared Transparent Face Mask!  YES!!  Not only can everyone see your beautiful face, but this mask is so much more comfortable and breathable!  It won’t fog up, and it provides the protection we need during this pandemic.  So go sport that bold lip and give Covid the middle finger!

How to Get that Summer Glow!

Everyone looks better with a healthy glow, am I right? Keyword being “Healthy” though, people! Stop baking in the sun and get your glow on with my new favorite Self-Tanner by South Seas! They have so many formulations, so there really is something for everyone! I LOVE using their Tanning Mousse on my body for a deep, natural, island tan. For my face, I use their Tahitian Glow Lotion….this stuff smells amazing and you are instantly transported to a tropical paradise! Seriously, I love this product. You can pick up some for yourself at SouthSeasSkincare.com

My girl, @MorganNorstrand looking flawless in her SouthSeas Self-Tanner!

I was browsing the makeup aisle in my local Walgreens in search of an inexpensive but glamorous bronzer…I found it! Wet & Wild has a great selection of shimmering bronzers for under $5! I grabbed them all and headed to my studio to play.

Normally when applying bronzers, I like to leave the “Diamond” of the face untouched by bronzers, but with this look I applied the bronzers to the nose as well as inner apples of the cheeks…be sure to watch the video…since this is tricky to explain in words. haha

Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for being here!
