Make Cosmetics Safer For YOU!

Check out this website I found thanks to my friend Anne. It tells you all about the chemicals in cosmetics today that are not good for your face, body, the environment, etc. Take some time and get educated. There is a short video, as well, that is pretty interesting. One of the main ingredients that is particularly harmful is TRICLOSAN. Check it out and let me know what you think:

HD Make-up

Need make-up for photos or video, like for your wedding day? My favorite to use on brides, bridal parties and mothers of the bride/groom is Make-Up Forever's "HD Foundation". It is light enough to use on a daily basis but the coverage is great enough that you barely need to use any concealor at all! It looks fabulous in any type of media: video, photography. etc. The setting powder is also amazing and makes your face feel like satin after all of your make-up is done. However, you want to put the "HD Powder" on as a very last step to set everything (after blush, eyes, etc.). To see more about these products visit Make-Up Forever's website:

Natural yet Defined Eyebrows

My latest great product find has been the Highlighting Brow Kit by Anastasia and it can be found on her website She actually has a ton of fabulous eyebrow products and she has, by far, made the best products, yet, for the eyebrows. They stay put all day and are not like regular powder eyeshadows. This particular product is a shadow for filling in the eyebrows without looking to fake or dark. There are three shades, so the kit is suitable for blondes and brunettes, but maybe not redheads. It also comes with a highlighting trio on the right side that is great for giving your brow an arch. Lastly, you can use all of the colors for eyeshadows.

MAKE-UP TIP: When filling in your eyebrows use a lighter shade on the inner part (closer to the nose and where they are thicker) and a darker shade as they thin out.

Louisville Magazine

Most recently, I got to do the make-up and hair for the cover of the December Issue of Louisville Magazine. My friend, John Nation, who is the photographer for Louisville Magazine, asked me if I would be interested and I could not have been happier! The picture of the cover is below and I think that it turned out great. The story was about the top places to work in Louisville.

Hello Beautiful!

I am Anne and I have been doing make-up for over 10 years in the Louisville area. I started doing make-up while working for Joseph’s Salon in 2000 and from there went to Estee Lauder, Mary Kay, Origins and I am now back with Aveda. I have a lot of experience with a variety of products and love learning about new products, you could call me a make-up or product junkie.
Throughout this blog I plan on sharing what I have done in the past and what I am currently working on. I also want to share with you all some of my favorite products and also brand new products that I run across that need to have your immediate attention! I love doing make-up for events, brides, runway events, photo shoots and more, so if you are ever in need of a make-up artist feel free to contact me!
