Ever Thine, Ever Mine….

Ever Thine, Ever Mine....

So,  Ludwig van Beethoven (yeah…that guy who makes good classical music) also penned a few (or more) love letters to his lady friend Antonie…and one of the more infamous of them ends “Ever Thine, Ever Mine, Ever Ours”.  Even Carrie and Big had a Ludwig van moment on Sex and the City.  Timeless sentiment and […]


Bridesmaid Dress Redux

Bridesmaid Dress Redux

So….I’m not sure how many bridesmaids dresses you have in your “bridesmaids dress” collection, but I have more than a few…and all of them but one have ever been worn again. Poufy sleeves, bad taffeta and unflattering details (plus a few other reasons) made most of the dresses I marched down the aisle in unwearable […]

Celebrity Looks for Real Women

Celebrity Looks for Real Women

 Gosh…I don’t even know where to start here!  I’d been cooking up this project for awhile.  I love vintage looks…that’s no surprise, and wanted to create looks from each decade gone by and thought using “real women” (aka. my friends) would be fun.  Everyone really can look like a celebrity..here’s the proof! So here it is…two […]

Runway: Carol Hannah~Spring/Summer 2012

Wow…what a treat!  I recently had the honor of creating the makeup look for the Carol Hannah~Spring/Summer 2012 Runway Show.  The gowns were positively dreamy and the show itself was a real stunner!  Carol Hannah’s inspiration for the show was “The Golden Hour”…the special time of day when the light is warm and everything takes on a magical glow… […]


Beauty in an Underpass

Beauty in an Underpass

There’s nothing more fun than being creative…just for the sake of being creative!  And that’s exactly what this shoot was all about!  I needed some new beauty shots and dear friend and shutterbug supreme Carla Ten Eyck was (and always is) up for playing photo shoot with me…because she’s that kind of gal too!  So…I found […]

Oscar Countdown: Movie Mavens~Vivien Leigh

Vivien Leigh….Scarlett O’Hara….”Gone With the Wind”…Nuf’ said, really…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaPMpD4oxDA[/youtube] But I’ll keep talking anyway.  So clearly if you watched above, Vivien Leigh won the Oscar for Best Actress in “Gone With The Wind” (1939) and again for “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951) ….and quite obviously well deserved. I’m from the South and even I want Miss Scarlett’s accent.

Moments in Makeup: The Enamelling Studio

Moments in Makeup: The Enamelling Studio

An Enamelling Studio on Broadway Huh???  That’s kinda what I said…what the bleep was that?  But…essentially, it was the precursor to the current day “makeup studio”…or as it was considered at the time, a den of “female vice”. (I totally see where they’re going with that)  Frequented by dancing girls, courtesans and other women of ill repute (you […]


Get the Look~Berry Stained Lips

Get the Look~Berry Stained Lips

Glamour. Old Hollywood.  A fresh take on the Classic Red Lip.  Love it.  The rules are still the same…flawless skin, clean, well-defined eyes, more than subtle cheeks and a strong lip…but the colors used make it something new.  Burgundy instead of Cherry for the lips and a splash of color along the lashes adds balance and drama.  Red Carpet worthy […]

Red Carpet Recap:  SAG Awards 2011

Sexy or Soft…Va Va Voom or totally Understated….that seemed to be the beauty mood on the Red Carpet last night at the SAG Awards.  The beauty Yin to the beauty Yang…the Smokey Eye to the Nude Face. My favorite look of the night was Christina Hendricks with her over the top smokey, sultry eye.  This […]
