Mandy Creates a Whole New Look

Mandy Sherman visited my studio for a makeover and photo shoot in August to pamper herself with a new look during a weekend trip to Washington, D.C. Mandy typically presents as androgynous, somewhere between male and female, but she tells me that she’d prefer to be in femme mode all the time. Since Mandy wanted to try a wig, I French braided Mandy’s long, brown hair and tucked the tail under her braid so her hair would lay flat under the wig. Adorned in the Revlon Scorpio Cherry Cola wig, natural makeup, and clothes from my studio wardrobe, Mandy looked like a whole new girl.

Check out these photos from our makeover, and read her account of our makeover at her blog including her initial reluctance and then delight at wearing a short skirt and high heels.

Hi ladies!

I’ll be at the TGEA meeting this Saturday, August 2, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington to lead a conversation about makeup and skincare.

When: 2 August 2014, 7pm
Where: Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

Erica Goes Photoshop

Erica Goes Photoshop

Erica looks even more stunning after a touch of Photoshop. I softened the background and her skin and removed the stray hairs that had blown across her face.


Erica commands an audience with this original photo that had been edited in Lightroom for white balance, crop, exposure compensation, and contrast.

Summer Sparkle Party–July 19, 8 p.m.

Wine glasses

Let’s drink sparkling wine, wear sparkling outfits and makeup, and have a blast meeting new people and making new friends!

Ladies, join us for our Summer Sparkling Party on Saturday, July 19, at 8 p.m.!  For our sparkle theme, we’ll quaff sparkling wine, nosh on wine-friendly appetizers, and show off our sparkling clothes, jewelry, shoes, and makeup!

RSVP: To join in, RSVP at  If you’re one of my existing clients and prefer not to join the Meetup at this time, contact me directly to RSVP (20 guests max).

Bring: Please bring a bottle of sparkling wine, $12+ ($8+ if from Total Wine), and a wine-friendly food item to share so that we will plenty for all to enjoy. Post what you plan to bring in the RSVPs on Meetup so we can all plan.

Sparkling Wine: Sparkling wine is produced worldwide from grapes including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Glera, and many more. Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, and other bubblies are produced using two fermentations. See Wine Geek Speak below

Wines to consider bringing: Champagne, Cava (they have great ones at Total Wine starting at $8–grocery store will run you nearly $20 for one of a similar quality), Prosecco, and sparkling wines from California, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina, Australia, Virginia, New Mexico (Gruet is a favorite!), France, Austria, Germany, and others. France alone has many delicious sparkling wine regions including Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Loire Valley, and the Languedoc.

Food Items: Please bring a food item that pairs well with sparkling wine. Here’s a list of items to get your culinary juices flowing:

  • Guacamole and Tortilla Chips (Abbi Kadabra is bringing this)
  • Strawberries
  • Insalata Caprese (mozzarella, basil, and tomato salad with olive oil)
  • Cheeses, especially those with earthy flavors like Brie
  • Shrimp, Crab, Scallops, or other seafood or a seafood dip
  • Sushi
  • Air-Popped Popcorn with Olive Oil and Sea Salt or with Truffle Oil & Sea Salt (I have this one covered!)

Wine Geek Speak Ahead: The first fermentation creates a still wine much like a traditional white wine. The second fermentation is induced when Yeast + Sugar are added to the still wine an enclosed container, either the bottle or a tank, and produce Carbon Dioxide + Alcohol, which are both trapped in the still wine. The Carbon Dioxide gives the still wine its sparkle and bubbles and the alcohol level raises about 1% compared to the base still wine. The yeast is then removed before final corking/bottling. Champagne and Cava both use the wine bottle as the closed container to enhance the earthiness, nuttiness, or yeastiness of the wine while Prosecco uses a tank for the second fermentation to preserve the fresh, fruit flavor.

To being fabulous!
