Minty Lips

I went to lunch the other day with my sweet friend Carrie who recently went to San Fran and told me about a new cosmetics line/shop she found out there called LUSH Cosmetics Since she is so thoughtful and fabulous, she bought me her favorite product that she found. The new product that she introduced me to is a lip scrub called Mint Julips. It smells like a Junior Mint and you rub a little bit on your lips, rub your lips together and it actually tastes like a Junior Mint!! Plus -it actually softens your lips pretty well. I just hope I don't go through this whole jar in a week b/c it's kind of addicting! Now, they don't sell this stuff in Austin - but obviously you can order it online - and I would highly suggest that b/b you would be missing out.

Thank you so much Carrie for my San Fran souvenir!

Katie's Wedding

This past weekend was my friend Katie's wedding in Arlington, TX. Katie asked me to do the makeup for her and her bridesmaids and it was a blast! Although Katie was concerned about me putting too much makeup on her since she's not a fan of a ton of makeup (probably b/c she doesn't really need it!) but she was quite happy with the end result. :) here are a few pictures from the weekend. Congrats Katie and Jordan!!

Sorry for being MIA lately, but I've got a new project in the works. Thanks to Sarah, I will be coming out with a series of "how-to" videos, and considering that Sarah & Lauren will be my test bunnies, I'm sure they will be quite entertaining!! :) If you have any suggestions or things you would like us to do, please let me know!!

Brighten Up Your Day

So the weather is FINALLY starting to come around and it is absolutely B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. outside right now in Austin... so when I was on Bobbi Brown's website today, I noticed that they have announced a new skin care line, and one product stuck out to me as a perfect remedy for all of the outdoor activities I'm sure you are now taking part of.
It's called Brightening SPF 50 UV Protective Face Base and is part of their new "Brightening skin care" line. If you have ever used their regular "Face Base" you will know that this stuff is amaaaazing, but my only problem has been the lack of SPF in it. Well this solves the problem. I know SPF 50 seems like a high number, but honestly, having SPF 50 on your face daily will save you quite a few wrinkles in the future, or help prevent new ones from coming in. :)
