Never before has it been more important to have an open line of communication between our departments. Coming from a former producing background myself, I understand that there are certain aspects of a Makeup Artist's role that you either assume will be done or, quite frankly, don't think about at all.
If you've been in the industry for a while, think back to how many times this has happened to you. What do you think would happen to your bottom line, had you been able to keep some of those dollars rather than pushing them away?
I now technically have 15 minutes left to work on her. Production pulls me aside, “we need to get her on camera in 15.” I chuckle, respectfully, but I chuckle. There is no world that exists, no other Rick & Morty dimension or alternate timeline where this will be possible to achieve. I need to remove her entire face of
Do you supplement your diet by taking extra vitamins and minerals daily? If you're living in the United States where our general food supply is RIDDLED with toxic pesticides (over 80,000 new chemicals were introduced to our crops in the last 20 years), it's time to start thinking about it.
It's a thing of the past to be able to get the necessary nutrition that your body needs simply by eating "healthy." Unless you have a fully functional organic garden in your back yard, you are not. That is our harsh reality in this country. So, let's talk about supplementation and your...
Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE breakfast food and I will eat it any time of day. As a Jersey girl, I grew up going to local diners & "greasy spoons," enjoying the yumminess that is the beloved omelette with a side of well done home fries and toasty toast. :-) Mmmmmm... Burn the homefries! Dooooo itttttt!
Now, I make it a point to cook a healthy, nutritious, and well-rounded breakfast in the comfort of my own home for myself and my husband, although I must admit to indulging in the rare diner experience now and again. One of my absolutely favorite breakfasts to...

I’m still waiting for spring here in Wisconsin, but it’ll come soon!!
For today’s look, I started by cleansing my skin with Skintellegence Hydra Derm Emulsion and went right into exfoliating my skin with the Lumiere De Vie Volcanic Mask. It’s amazing how smooth it makes my skin feel. My skin always looks more polished and radiant. I have been making it a point of using the mask at least twice a week...
I'm tickled to be introducing this month's Artist Spotlight, Jessi Jewel. She is such a beauty and incredibly talented. Read all about her!
They say everything in life is meant to happen for a reason, well, I believe that my journey in life absolutely has happened for a reason and has lead me to where I am today. So this is where my story begins...
As a child, growing up I was a very mellow, quiet, shy little thing, but was always very active in sports. When I started playing softball I shortly after came to find that I caught on so fast and really excelled at it. I was alw...
Valentine's day is right around the corner so the girls and I thought we'd share some of our favorite date night looks! Whether you're a team natural kinda gal or if you prefer the drama of a smokey eye and a red lip, you'll find it all in this blog. Have a chocolate filled Hallmark holiday!

My loves, it is my absolute pleasure to introduce you to my friend, Jayme Jo. Not only is she an extreme talent, she is truly beautiful from the inside out. I can't wait for you to get to know her a little better. Enjoy.
I feel like many would agree that's it's not easy to become the true you, the person you were always meant to be. We have so many outside influences telling us right from wrong, their opinion of what success really is, what's "beautiful," what's "frowned upon." I'm here to say that I'm finally in the right direction and it's a life goal of mine to ope...
