Weekend Warrior

Hello!!! It's Monday and I am so energized and ready for this week after an amazing weekend of work and play!  There were competitive cooking dinner parties (a chef-off if you will), connecting with friends, photo shoots, weddings, lounging...I can't complain.  Saturday was a CRAZY day but I had so much fun.  I was able to do makeup for a fantastic wedding party in the morning and then was apart of a "lifestyle" photo shoot in the afternoon in Atlanta's Piedmont Park.  Below I have posted a couple of fun teaser pictures for you to check out.  I will post a full blog about the shoot when I get more pictures :)

I hope you all survived the weekend and look forward to having another week of fun and glam. Kisses!

We Came, We Saw, We Did Makeup

Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic weekend and thank you to all who made it out to Beauty Escape Make-Up Bar's Ultimate Girls Day Out!  For those of you who did not get to be there, you will definitely have to catch the next one!  This event was held at Kai Lin Art which is located in Atlanta's Buckhead area (adjacent to Buckhead Theater).   We had a spectacular turn out and I was lucky to meet so many fabulous women.

All of the attendees were able to explore and experience the wide range of vendors.  Full face makeup application, reflexology, fat burning and massage therapy were a just a few of the services offered.  Shopping? Oh yes. We had a traveling boutique, stunning jewelry, antiques, candles, desserts and so much more.  I think the huge hit of the afternoon, though, was the plethora of free Skinny Girl Cocktails that were being mixed and passed out in the back of the gallery.

I was very lucky to be doing makeup with my dear friend Leah Carmicheal.  We shared a table, combined our freelance kits and got to work.  Our brushes were on fire after completing approximately 30 makeovers between the two of us.  It was amazing and I always enjoy days when I can work with her :)

We will make sure to keep you all updated on upcoming events so that you can come out and enjoy a pampering day with your girlfriends.  Have a spectacular day and make sure to check out our products at LaceCosmetics.Com!

The Proof Is In The Pudding

I got a message from one of my boutiques telling me that I need to bring more foundations in because they are selling out! Y'all HAVE to try these foundations! Here are benefits to wearing it:

1) Great coverage with a light feel

2) Hides the appearance of pores and give a silky smooth finish (an airbrushed look)

3) Great for mature skin because it does not settle in lines or wrinkles AT ALL

4) Dry skin It will not make you look dry or flaky. The foundation contains Jojoba Root Extract that will put moisture into your skin and seal it in for the day

5) Oily/Sensitive skin This water based formula will not irritate the skin or clog pores. You will not look extra shiny while wearing it like other liquid foundations do.

6) Ethnicity and Age- We cater to ALL AGES, ALL ETHNICITIES AND ALL SKIN TYPES.

The Jojoba Foundation will work on every woman and according to my stock counts...the proof is in the pudding.

Wow...That's Some Good Gloss

Hello!!! I heard the CRAZIEST Lace Cosmetics story this weekend and HAD to share!

I was working in Demure this weekend when a customer came in and noticed that I was the "makeup lady."  She pulled her Fierce lip gloss out of her purse and told me how much she loved it.  But then...she told me the story of when she bought it.

She had come into Demure and my freelance artist, Melissa, had helped her try on different colors until she found the one she loved.  After making her purchase, the customer and her boyfriend left the shopping center to head home.  They were involved in a car accident on I20 and totaled their car (don't worry, they were okay!).  After having a moment to collect themselves on the side of the road, she realized that she left her brand new lip gloss in the car.

I cannot tell you how hard I was laughing when she told me that she made her boyfriend run out into the highway and search through the wreckage until her gloss was recovered!!!

Tell me that's not brand loyalty AND a testament to how amazing Lace's makeup is!

Have a great week!

My Vintage Weekend

Image Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a FAB weekend! Mine was full of photo shoots and running around the boutique with Lace. Needless to say, it was a fulfilling weekend :)

Friday, I got to do makeup for a REALLY fun vintage bathing suit photo shoot with an incredible photographer, Micah Williams. Seriously...look her up! It was so much fun working with her. Micah did a great job of keeping the atmosphere fun and comfortable and gave amazing direction. She is very creative with her style of photography and puts so much heart into her work. Her love for shooting and great work ethic certainly comes across in her photographs.

Here are a few pictures she let me snag from the weekend!

My First Film

After going through some old files and emails, I found the video for the short film I worked on last year.  It was for the 24 Hour Film Race which was an awesome experience and allowed me to meet some truly amazing people.  Our film went on to win "Best Short Film" in the national competition.  I was so proud to work on it and thought I would share it with everyone.

The meaning behind this line really touched my heart.  I was so lucky to meet CEO & Chief Designer, Bobby Ennis.  Lady Lee and BLee are clothing lines that helps raise awareness for battered and homeless women.  Bobby's organization is working towards raising the money to create and run a shelter that will help women get off of the streets and out of violent situations and start new lives.

Today I will be putting the entire color line for Lace Cosmetics into Demure's Edgewood location!  I am excited they will be rolling out all of the color since customers responses to Lace products have been more than I could have hoped for.  With this happening, I will now be able to offer a location for people to meet me for bridal consultations, makeovers and color advice.  It is so much easier for people to have a location to actually go to where they can touch and see makeup before actually buying.
