The New Classic

I love my new Sam Villa Texture iron.  Its great for adding bulk to otherwise limp hair.  Here I textured the hair all over with the iron and folded it under in the front to look like a faux bob.  I love these more simple, modern styles that I don’t typically get to do on clients.  I wanted her hair to look classic with a softness, like a pillow.

 Make up is Kat Von D blush in Por Vida on the lids and cheekies,  Kat Von D everlasting lipstick in Love Spell, Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow in Soft Brown, KvD everlasting Eyeliner in Ink and Perversion mascara and subversion primer by Urban Decay.

Perfect Pout with NYX Lip Primer

Up until about a year ago I wasn’t sure if I could wear lipstick. Actually, I wasn’t sure if I should.  I spent many nights in front of my bathroom mirror trying on every shade.  No matter how careful I was, I still felt like I was 5-years old going through my mother’s makeup.  Lip stick just looked like a smear across my mouth.   I kept blaming the lipstick, it must just be those cheap brands. I needed high-end rouge if I want a high-end pout.  And yeah, it helped, the better quality the product the easier it was to apply.  Wearability was another problem though.  Smudging, creasing, caking, feathering, I couldn’t figure it out.  And on top of it, trying to remember,  when you are a REAL lady, you can’t touch your face! Anyway, let’s just say I went through all the mishaps so you don’t have to.  I finally found my miracle product!

NYX LIP PRIMER

This NYX Lip Primer is the best! Truthfully, it is the only lip primer I have tried but it was everything I dreamed of! It has a velvety application which helps smooth lip texture.  I find using it with a matte color helps it turn into a sort of lip stain.  I can even kiss my boyfriend and his lips stay color free!  It has worked well with any lipstick I have put to the test, and no feathering!  I often wear lip stick to work.  I’ll apply my lipstick at 9am, spend all day under heat, talking, eating lunch/snacks, being awesome and get home around 8pm and my lips are in place.  Best part?? It costs about $7 at Ulta.  Thank you NYX, now anyone can be a real lady.

I invited one of besties, Erin,  to stop by the salon and have a little medieval fun! The style was inspired by the totally bad ass head chain she produced from her bag. A very lucky thift find, no doubt. I wanted her to look elegant, regal and commanding.  A style she could take to a battle field or ball.

.As you can see my hair is black, these photos were taken about 2 years ago. I have SOOO many photos to add to my portfolio that I haven’t had a home for until now.  I will be a very busy bee this summer making the seacoast beautiful and plan to update all my favorite wedding styles and trends weekly.
