NATURAL MAKEUP HAS COME A LONG WAY!

Just five years ago, I couldn’t have done makeup on the red carpet using only natural products. The ingredients were great, but they either didn’t hold up or offer enough of a range. But so not the case now! Last night I had the total pleasure of doing Emily Deschanel’s makeup for the Golden Globes and knew when prepping my kit that I could only bring natural products as she is vegan and very conscious of what she puts in and on her body.

FASHION FRIDAY

Let’s be honest, figuring out how to wear your hair with a particular outfit can be really hard. We’re going to try and simplify that with “Fashion Fridays”. Every Friday we’ll pick a new shape, silhouette, neckline, etc… We’ll go over which hairstyles to pair the look with and why. Hopefully this will help us all connect the gap between hair + fashion.

Xx Kristin
