My Personal Makeup Secrets, Tips & Tricks!

I typically showcase how to do fast, easy and simple makeup.  I’m all about that life.  I give myself about 15 minutes to get ready, and that includes applying makeup, doing my hair, and getting dressed.
However, every time I actually do my makeup, I get questioned on what I did differently.
Here’s what I do to get my makeup looking professional.  Two things:  I allow myself about 20-30 minutes to apply my makeup, and I add in a few extra steps and products to really amp up the look.
In this video, I go over ALL of my secrets, tips and tricks to get FANTASTIC looking makeup.  AND, I show you exactly how to do it on yourself.
Take a look, and don’t forget to share!  {Seriously, this video took roughly 14 hours to put together.  Sharing with your friends is the best payment for our hard work ♥}

Simple Everyday Makeup Look

Rachel’s Makeover

This is Rachel.  As you can see, she’s a natural beauty.  She works full-time, is the mom of a busy 2 year old, and she’s also expecting baby number two due in November!

I wanted to create a look that is simple, yet polished.  This makeup routine is quick and enhances natural beauty.  It’s wearable for various occasions — work, hanging out with the fam, or even going out for dinner/cocktails (you’re almost there, Rach! haha!).

I absolutely LOVE a muted, matte eye with glowing skin.

For specific details on this look, I whipped up this video for you!

I love what I do.  I am a trained makeup artist and I have the power to give every women that sits in my chair the ability to feel more confident.  Not many professions have such power.

I witness the eyes’ of my client light up as I hand her the mirror after her makeover.  She sits up taller.  She smiles brighter.  She struts out into the world with grace.

She’s confident.  She’s confident because I play up the features that she already loves. Sure, she may still wish her lips were more full, or her cheek bones were higher.  But her eyes.  Her eyes are already a great feature, and after her makeover they really stand out.

Empowering other women with confidence is a true passion of mine.  I want to give YOU a makeover.  I want to see your best features and make them stand out.  For free.

Yes. For. Free.

I love self-love.  And more so, I love promoting self-love.
