a few words from

 Back in December I posted about a starter makeup kit for a tween. Yesterday Ranee and I did a fun FACEing class for a group of four twelve year olds who go to school with my daughter. None of them really wear makeup except for dances, but they want to learn the right way to […]

I was recently contacted by Marti to do makeup for her and a group of girlfriends as part of her 30th birthday celebration. They came to the studio,brought their refreshments and tunes, got glammed up, and then went out on the town. This is also a great shower idea,bachelorette party or perhaps a group of […]
