A few weeks ago I was incredibly honored to be interviewed on a blog called “One portrait of Us” It’s a site that interviews various people of all kinds. She asks really meaningful (and kind) questions that take a lot of thought and soul searching to answer. Here is a little excerpt from our interview:
Plain and simple, you help women feel beautiful, you help them discover (or rediscover) their beauty through the art of make up, and you help them feel confident about who they are. I know that is more of a statement than a question, but I just want you to tell us about the ability (and talent) you have to do that. To see beauty where it is not often seen, to rescue the confidence and strength of all types of women.
I guess I can’t really take credit for it. I think we are born with certain gifts in life and one that I am most grateful for is my eye for beauty. In women more than anything. Nick is always joking that nothing impresses me because he’s always pointing out cool buildings or gorgeous views and I do think they are cool but he’s right, I don’t really go gaga over them. It’s people that have always been my focus. Beautiful faces, beautiful souls. I think maybe it’s that simple. I genuinely believe that every women is beautiful. Through and through. It’s not an act. It’s not just something to say. It’s true. And when someone truly, sincerely and completely believes something and they share it with you, it’s kind of hard to not catch their passion a bit.

I just barely got back from NYC where I filmed a couple of fun tutorials with Redken! Here is one of them. It was really fun working with the amazing hair stylists and makeup artists there. I tried to be nosey and figure ask a lot of questions so I could glean some tips for you guys.
One of the makeup artists was showing me his favorite products. He loves these Armani Cream shadows and swears they don’t crease. I played with them a bit and they were very pigmented and blendable and I even in the major humidity I didn’t have any creasing! The colors were all stunning but the Minuit was my favorite, gorgeous smokey blue. The jade is pretty amazing also.
These ideas are genius!
I’m dying over these shoes...AHHH I wish they were just half the price:) Gonna try to find something similar in my price range.
Speaking of expensive things…remember when I really really wanted those Ray Bans and I finally got them for Christmas cause I convinced Nick that I would not ever under any circumstances and for any reason lose them?
I lost ’em. 🙈
Left them on the airplane….curse those sneaky seat pockets!
So….it’s back to the cheapies for me. I like this pair.
Love you guys! Hope you have a fun weekend!
Sorry this week was a little sparse, New York kind of took over my week. It’s like that:)
