Makeup tutorials on facebook

Makeup tutorials on facebook

Hi everyone! I’ve done several makeup tutorials throughout the years on my facebook page. With the links below to the individual videos, you can watch even if you don’t join facebook. Pretty cool!

Just as a heads up, I’m currently working primarily with MAC makeup and my only studio is in Takoma Park, MD just one mile from Washington, DC. You will hear many references my previous studio locations of Alexandria, Baltimore, and Cabin John in my older videos. However, my only studio is in Takoma Park, MD. You’ll also hear me talking a lot about Younique makeup, but I don’t sell Younique online anymore. I have a few Younique products still available in inventory if there’s something you’re craving.

Enjoy!

Sarah Smoothes her Skin, Builds her Confidence

Sarah has been struggling with skin issues for the past 30 years, ever since she developed melasma during her pregnancy. When we spoke on the phone, Sarah described patchy dark spots, white scars, and pitting that had taken their toll on her skin texture and appearance. She had been to makeup counters and watched YouTube videos yet hadn’t figured out how to work with her features and create the sun-kissed glow of J Lo that she desired. After finding me in a Google search, Sarah contacted me for a makeup lesson as she loved my work. Highly motivated, Sarah drove two hours each way for her makeup lesson on her day off.

We walked through Sarah’s products to determine which ones matched and would work with both her skin tone and uneven skin. We eliminated the products that didn’t match her skin tone and those that had a lot of luminosity, since shine brings attention to flaws in the skin. Then we set to work creating her matte look using moisturizer, foundation primer, concealer, foundation, creme eye shadows, eye liner, mascara, bronzer, blush, and lipstick.

After we finished her hands-on makeup lesson, Sarah looked stunned at how smooth her skin was with a hint of the bronze glow she craved. She confessed that she hated going to department store makeup counters, because they weren’t private and she didn’t like being on display for people to watch. The one-on-one private makeup lesson with me perfectly fit what she needed, she said.

Sarah, you looked beautiful today when you walked into my studio and you looked gorgeous after your makeup when you glowed with confidence. Keep up the confidence, girl, and rock you!

To being fabulous!

“French and Fabulous” Cocktail Party

Join us a “French and Fabulous”-themed cocktail party for trans-women and allies (any gender identity or sexual orientation as long as you respect trans-women) on Saturday, September 20 at 8 p.m.! Dress fabulously to fit the theme. 🙂

_DSC3400_smallGuests are requested to bring French wine ($12+) or other French beverages (e.g., spirits, beers, sparkling waters) and a wine-friendly food item to share. Suggestions for wine and food items and more details to follow. Guests are requested to post what they will be bringing so we’ll have a good assortment of wine and food.

Since I’m a sommelier and wine educator, you’ll get the chance to learn more about French wines over the course of the evening too. We’ll have a blast!

RSVPs: As an FYI, I’ve had a wait list for my last few TG and allies parties, so make your plans early to avoid disappointment. 🙂 If you are one of my clients and I’ve met you in person, you may RSVP to me directly. If not, then RSVP at either the DC Trans Ladies Meetup Group or the Washington DC Area Transgender Meetup Group. Please maintain a complete, respectable profile with a photo on the Meetup site so that I can know who to expect.

To being fabulous!
