    Dramatic Autumn Makeup Tutorial

    While you’ll normally see me with a bright pink lip most days (that I’m not working, that is), when it comes time for autumn, I can’t help but gravitate towards a deep, plum berry lip. Case in point: this gorgeous color called Amethyst #165 by Dolce & Gabbana. Gorgeous shade. As with all darker lipsticks, make sure your lips are well conditioned and exfoliated before applying. Try mixing granulated sugar in some olive oil for a quick, DIY lip scrub!…

    How To Do Shellac & Rockstar Nails At Home

    Once again, thank you for the outpouring of support from you as my family and I endured through such a difficult day yesterday. I love you guys!

    Basic Everyday Makeup Tutorial

    Do not let the fabulous rainbow colors fool you: this is a pretty simple, everyday makeup look. Now, I’m no makeup artist, and yes I fudge up sometimes in the video (and trust me, I’m aware). But I do put on makeup everyday, and have been doing so for the last 15 years or so. I’ve created this video in a more sophisticated editing program that I’m trying out. Do you like the way this video runs? I would love…
