I know that I say this a lot, but this is one product that I can't live without! I honestly believe that every woman should have a MAC Paint Pot in "Painterly". It is a fabulous cream to powder base that acts as an amazing eyelid primer. It is waterproof, and crease proof, which is amazing! I don't know about you, but I have the hardest time with my eye shadows creasing before the day is half over! When I use "Painterly" Paint Pot under my shadow it lasts all day, all night, and then some. I have even slept with my makeup on (oops! don't tell!) once before and woke up to perfect eye makeup because I started my eye makeup by using a paint pot!

I love love love "Painterly" Paint Pot!! It is a nice matte flesh colored tone, that really helps cover eyelid redness. I put it on with my concealer brush and then put my shadow combo for the day over it! It keeps shadow where you put it, without getting that unintentional smokey eye look by the end of the day. If you like to use shadow as your eyeliner, it is great to put "Painterly" under the eye also where you are putting the liner. It will stay put all day! I also love using "Blackground" Paint Pot on the eyelid when going for a very dark smokey eye look. "Constructivist" is also nice for a very warm rich brown smokey eye. You can use these Paint Pots as a primer, as well as a shadow. As much as I love both of these shades, "Painterly" is still most favorite because it is so versatile.

Like I said, every woman should have MAC Paint Pot in "Painterly"!! Try it out, I promise you will love it!

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy Before & After

I am just in love with the Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola. I am sure that many of you have heard of a "blowout" or "Brazilian Blowout". This is a similar treatment although I feel that it is a far superior product than others that are on the market. This revolutionary therapy reduces frizz and curl and instantly adds amazing shine, silkiness and condition to the hair. The results are astounding. Clients rave that “this is a life-changing experience”. Hair is more manageable, smoother and easier to style than ever before. It is perfect on all types of hair – including color treated and chemically processed hair! The results last for 3-6 months with proper home care (home care products are included in the price!).

Wondering if Keratin Complex is right for you? The answer is yes! This is not a chemical straightening process, but a smoothing process that will help eliminate curl and smooth frizz. It is great for all hair types, and is an amazing deep conditioning process that heals the hair.

There have been press releases about the harmful effects of formaldehyde in many blowout products. Keratin Complex does not contain formaldehyde, but does contain a derivative called aldehyde. OSHA has certified it a safe product, you can read the the results of all testing HERE

I have had extensive training on the process and have seen dramatic results in the health and manageability of my clients hair!

Take a look at these before and after pictures of this amazing product and my clients who have benefited so much from it!







Guys even love it!!


After (I forgot to get an in-salon after picture! Oops!)

Can you imagine stepping out of the shower and having stronger, sleek, perfect hair? Not having to spend hours flat ironing? This product is a dream come true!!

WONDER PRODUCT! Vol.1: Ojavan Products

As far as skin care goes, Ojavan is the most amazing product I have ever used! I am in love with it!! It is a local company that produces Certified Organic and vegan skin care products from the Great Salt Lake. Literally, the ingredient label on the Npato Mineral Mud says "Great Salt Lake Mineral Mud, Concentrated Mineral Water from the Great Salt Lake, and nothing else." The Npato Mineral Mud is by far my favorite product, along with Pamea Poan Facial Moisturizer. These two products have seriously changed my life!

This is my kind of embarrassing, but very true story!

I am 24 years old and have suffered from acne for the past 13 years. I have literally tried it all (including prescriptions from a doctor) and have always been disappointed. I suffer from severely dry skin, but have acne. I have always had to mix and match products because most are just for acne or just for dry skin, one always counteracting the other. As a hair and makeup artist, I always feel the need to look my best and have always longed for flawless skin. Not to mention that I am a picker, I absolutely love to pick my zits (gross, I know). Because I have had bad skin for so long, the picking has almost become compulsive and has left some scars which have made me hate my skin even more. Before discovering Ojavan, I was using 8 different skincare products (not including makeup) daily. From face cleansers, creams, moisturizers, serums, and masks, it was taking me about 60-90 minutes every day just for skin care and I was getting very minimal results. After my morning 20 minute skin care routine it would take me 20-30 minutes just to apply my foundation and concealer to cover the vast amount of blemishes on my face. That is a total of nearly 2 hours daily just to make my skin look normal! That doesn't seem vain at all! HA! I felt that I had to wear makeup to the gym, camping, swimming, and even to just go get the mail! I would dread having to take my makeup off at the dermatologist, and would never allow anyone to touch my face. Then my life changed when I found Ojavan! In all honesty I was planning to be disappointed, because that is how every product has left me feeling. It seemed too good to be true. I applied the Npato Mineral Mud Mask to my face followed by the Pamea Poan Facial Moisturizer. By morning 50% of my blemishes were gone, but I did have some new breakouts which was discouraging. I was assured that the mineral mud was detoxifying my skin and to keep at it! By day 2 I didn't have to wear concealer. By day 3 my skin was completely clear of any acne or blemishes. I used the mud mask every night for 2 weeks and now just wash my makeup off nightly and use the mud mask about twice a week. I have not had clear skin like this since I was 10! I actually went to the gym for the first time ever makeup free! Not only is my acne gone, but my skin is more moisturized than it has ever been! This product truly is amazing. I have never had such beautiful skin, I barely even recognize myself! I have gained so much more confidence, and I no longer have to hide my makeup free face from my husband at night! Thank you Ojavan for seriously changing my life, giving me more time, and saving me money!

Mineral Mud isn't just for acne, there are an entire list of benefits! If you are interested in finding out information about any Ojavan Products check out their website HERE

Niki's Bridals

Can we say most darling bride ever? I am in love with her short dress, and I think she is just the cutest thing! Niki wanted a "fun bun" for her bridals and I absolutely loved the idea, because it is just like her personality! She is too much fun! Again we went with a more natural beauty look for her makeup, and I think she looks absolutely stunning! Not to mention that I love the locations! The Sweet Tooth Fairy in Layton is one of my favorite places! I can't wait for the big day! Photography by Terra Cooper of Magnifique Photography

Niki's Engagements

Niki is my new favorite person! I truly have never met a more sweet, loving, caring, and funny girl in my life! I met Niki at a bridal show and immediatly knew that I would love working with her! She has the biggest heart, and has spent a lot of time (and money!) serving and doing volunteer missions all over the world. We even found out that we both served with the same organization in Ecuador voluteering in orphanages just a few years apart! Niki is a natural beauty, so when doing her hair and makeup, I wanted to enhance her beauty rather than hide it under a bunch of makeup and hairspray. I absolutely adore her, and have loved working with her! I am so excited for her wedding in June! Photography by the lovely Terra Cooper of Magnifique Photography
