Makeup artists and photographers have a natural alliance. So when Richmond, Virginia photographer, Sean DeWitt, told me that he had a model shoot, I saw this as a perfect opportunity to exercise my makeup artistry. Honestly, I never knew how many women did not feel confident doing their own makeup. My mother, Kyle (whom I’ve talked about before) is a makeup artist extraordinaire and being raised at her feet, I was¬†bound to pick up a few– quite a few– tricks.

The Fashion Weeks are behind us and we are officially calling it Spring!

This video, featuring the one and only Gary Jones– the Vice President of Marketing and Research at BeautiControl, gives us a 10 minute “I spy” view of New York Fashion Week’s biggest make-up trends: Pink, Pops of Color, Dark Drama and Lots and lots of lashes!
