Free makeup!

I have spent days going through my makeup to whittle down my kit from an entire room (no exaggeration) full of cosmetics colors to a carry on suitcase. Almost EVERYTHING MUST GO! Most of it is MAC Cosmetics, some is Chanel, Prescriptives, and other brands. There is nothing wrong with the makeup. I need to […]

Beware the ides of March are upon us

Bright eyes, average city

Some couture trends are not fashionable for Orlando. We have become a city where comfortable is our sad mediocrity. Although, makeup should merely enhance natural beauty, there are times when makeup can be fun. Orlando makeup artists often lose sight of this when creating looks. Clients are not open and daring. Let us see what […]
