Catch Me Tomorrow (7/19) on KWGN Everyday Show Here in Denver

Tune in tomorrow (I love saying that..) to Channel 2′s Everyday show here in Denver where I’ll be talking all about vintage beauty products. I’ll bring with me 5 things that have been around for 40+ years, the cult favs that are still around because they’re so awesome. I bet you have a few of them in your bathroom right now..

Wish Upon a Wedding (and me) on Fox 31 Denver

Last week I talked about Wish Upon a Wedding, the charitable organization (of which I am a part) that gives dream weddings to deserving couples who are fighting illness or are up against something monumental where it just isn’t possible for them to plan and execute a wedding on their own.

Here is a clip from Fox 31 Denver of the wedding, the couple, and myself applying the bride’s makeup. I wish they would’ve circled back with a close-up of her once the makeup was finished because her eyes were pretty fantastic. I only had time to prime her eyes and lay down a base shadow, so we weren’t even close to finishing up. Can you tell I feel weird about her un-finished makeup being shown so closeup on TV?

Anyhoo- enjoy the vid and best wishes to Dominique and Myles! Thank you for letting me be a part of such a special day.

 

Trends in Bridal Makeup; My Brides Colorado Interview

From time to time Brides Magazine will reach out to get my take on what’s hot in the world of wedding makeup since I spend most weekends beautifying brides for my Makeup Artist gig. This time, it was a no brainer – Kim Kardashian all the way. Her makeup is always perfection – totally sexy but not too smokey or dark. It’s the gold standard combo of sultry eyes with nude lips, and girls ask for it all the time.

Check out what I said below on how to get the look and what to use – here’s a hint; you can’t go wrong with Make Up For Ever shadow in Wine Red, and Smashbox’s Eyelights in Smokebox

Video: Save Money on Holiday Gifts by Swapping

This morning I was on Channel 2′s Everyday show chatting about swapping makeup, holiday decorations, kid’s clothes and toys with your friends. It’s a good way to de-clutter and gather some holiday gifts (for free!) at the same time.

Need more info on all things swap? Click here, also check out THIS article I wrote on hosting a swap for beauty products, keep in mind the format works for swapping whatever and not just makeup.
