As a Freelance Makeup Artist and SFX Makeup Artist with 30+ years of industry experience, I have been fortunate enough to work coast-to-coast on multiple projects providing makeup and on-set SFX makeup for film, TV, music videos, commercials, print and more!
I'm all for natural, clean beauty looks, but sometimes it's so much fun to venture outside the box. I find opening a palette of bright eyeshadow colors is reminiscent of a new box of crayons on Christmas morning. Oh, the colors..........all the pretty colors. Which one to choose first? Palette courtesy Yaby Cosmetics Quite often, when I'm applying makeup to a client, I'm asked "What colors look best on me?" There is by no means a written rule as to what colors you can and can't wear. My response always begins the same way, "Just try the color, if you like the way it looks, it works. If you think it's a horrible shade on your skin, then by all means choose something else."

A simple bit of your facial soap and a washcloth will take that stuff right off. So go ah
Summer is coming to a close and it's time to rethink our makeup looks for the beautiful Autumn weather. This is a perfect opportunity to consider deeper hues and vibrant jewel tones. I'm loving on plum shades to spice up the gorgeous fall clothing.
