A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.

Got A Minute?

That's all you need... 60 seconds or less! Quick beauty tips when you're short on time.
  • Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for an instant face brightener with a fluffy brush. Looks like an innocent flush of color! Who doesn't love that?
  • Lipstick stays put if you base it with a liner in the same color. Fill in your lips with the pencil and apply a creamy lipstick directly on top for full color impact. Results: HOT LIPS!
  • Want to look as if you spent the day at the beach? Swipe bronzer all over with a full brush. Be sure to brush it onto your earlobes and lightly on your neck for a completely natural look if you're pulling your hair back.
  • Sweep taupe (yes, taupe) shadow over your eyelids for a wide-awake look (color seemingly zaps redness)! Add navy or liner for definition and shape. Go from day to night in a flash with a touch of shimmery beige shadow at the inner corner to brighten the look.
  • Apply a metallic shadow to the lid and inner corners of your eyes. Results? Won't be able to ignore your sultry gaze!
  • Get your punk on! Coordinate your makeup and accessories for a pulled together look. Pair vampy red lips with a patent red clutch. Gold eye shadow with big gold hoops. And hot pink lips with funky fuchsia booties! Loves it.
