Step Your Eye Makeup Look Up

This is such a great service for any woman on the go that’s in a rush to get a little glam with me at Whip Salon. If you don’t have a full 45mins to get a beat face a little eye makeup application will definitely complete you.

Private Holiday Shopping Event At Lucy’s Westport

Today was a fun filled day for me. I spent half the day at Whip Salon and the other half at Lucy’s Westport. Lucy’s had a fancy private holiday shopping event for their customers at the Westport location from 4pm-8pm. Their customers were treated to hors d’oeuvres, wine, sparkling water, and a celebrity makeup artist-moi!

Lisa & Patrice were excellent hosts to their guest. Their staff was just as lovely engaging and being personal shoppers for their customers. My partner for the afternoon was makeup artist Daisy. She helped me out with pampering the ladies with makeup. We had such a nice time in Westport, luv all of the fashonista we met. Anytime a woman would come out in that horrible weather she must luv fashion. But if you saw the fab clothing that Lucy’s sell your understand why the event was successful. If your just starting your holiday shopping definitely make a trip to do your shopping for that fancy lady in your life at Lucy’s Westport & Ridgefield. Below you will find pics from the event.

How Was Your Thanksgiving?

I don’t know about you but this year I wasn’t ready for Thanksgiving. With so much going on plus being busy at work I really could have slept through this holiday. Wednesday night I manage to get up to start playing around with my table. Every holiday I look forward to dressing my table with a different theme. The kids luv that I do this now that the kids are older they help with ideas. I’ve never decorated with a traditional Thanksgiving theme my creative mind just luv having fun with it.

Two things that I didn’t get to do yesterday was stop by Leslie Glover Toran home & turn on the fireplace. After all that cooking I chilled with the family.  Like everyone else we were all to full to do anything else. I managed to get another breathing treatment in while we watched a movie. Working those 13 days straight I didn’t have time to do them so I was definitely overdue. My body started flaring on Monday after I got off.

What about you guys what are some the things you did yesterday with your family?


The tradition; mimosa & baked goods

Just like my table I don’t usually cook traditional Thanksgiving dishes. I take my time with my menu to make sure I give each family member a dish that they crave and/or luv.





My plate for the evening, the only thing missing is the sauteed crabs. I ate that after my treatments.

Good Night, I hope your time yesterday with your luv ones was just as peaceful, fun, & relaxing as mine.

Makeup Monday Is All About Great Skincare

Everyone is always talk about getting that flawless beat face. Well, you can’t achieve that if you don’t use skincare. This month my skincare of choice at Whip Salon is from First Aid Beauty. You can see FAB being featured in this month Glamour & In Style magazine.

I selected FAB for the month for a few reasons. It’s simple yet effective, it deliver immediate relief & it’s great for sensitive skin.

At the salon I do a lot of No Makeup Makeup looks so using First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Illuminating Moisturizer gives the skin that daily glow. The Detox Eye Roller is a fan for many of my clients. They luv the cooling effect in the instant improvement under the eye.

I’ll always use the best skincare that I can on my clients, because it’s not the BB Cream & Foundation that’s important it’s the SKINCARE!


I Love Doing Bridal Makeup

I really enjoyed this Sunday afternoon at Whip Salon. My highlight of the day was working with bride Michele Gerard and her sister-in-law Abi Leah. I really like that lately at the salon we have been getting a lot of brides coming in for hair & makeup. I luv weddings, I guess it’s the hopeless romantic in me. Michele was such a cool laid back bride, you would not have thought today was her wedding day.

For Michele I wanted to play up her eyes with lashes because I really wanted it to be all about her eyes with a dewy complexion and nude high glossy lips.

Abi was so cool, she’s from Amsterdam. Our conversation was like two old girlfriends. We covered so many topics in 45mins. I gave her a stronger eye with a soft pink lip.

What a fashionable group of ladies! #justsayin

Here are pics from Michele wedding that she sent over to me. #BEAUTIFUL

The Ladies Of Ridgefield CT Take New York

Last night at Whip Salon it was a girls night out feeling. We had a group of Ridgefield ladies book the salon for both hair & makeup. They were attending The Fresh Air Fund’s Fall Benefit at Pier 60, Chelsea Piers in New York. It was definitely a glam evening of fabulous fashion, bling jewelry & lots of sexy shoes. Here’s a peek inside of the Ridgefield women getting ready for a night out on the town to the big apple.

Wendy has become my muse…she let’s me do fun makeup looks on her.

Do You Need Help With Your Brows

Your eye brow shape can change how the shape of your face looks. Knowing the shape of your face is the first step to creating your most beautiful look. A perfect brow is very important because it’s the frame of the face and one of the first things everyone looks at.

When at Whip Salon I luv using Jane Iredale Great Shape Eyebrow Kit. This fabulous kit includes everything you need to have gorgeous eyebrows. If you want to create the perfect frame, this kit is a must! It’s water resistant, the wax is a botanical formula that will nourish and protect your brows. Inside the rose gold mirrored compact you get a travel size dual ended applicator that will leave you looking fancy on the go.

If I want more definition added to the brows I’ll use the Jane Iredale Retractable Pencils. If precise is what your looking for the precision tip is a great way to fill the brows in with. They come in 3 shades leaving you with Instagram brows that is long lasting so you don’t have to worry about smudging. The pencil reminds me of Anastasia Of Beverly Hills just mineral base.

If you want very natural brows just with a tint of color then I reach for Jane Iredale PureBrow Brow Gel. It’s great for unruly brows because it holds the brows in place. Perfect for anyone who is experiencing grey eyebrows, the tint gives you enough color to cover them. If you want to be creative you can also use the brow gels as a mascara, just saying. Plus, the algae extract helps to conditions your brows making them healthy.

 So I saved the best for last, my must have brow products is Jane Iredale PURELASH Lash Extender & Conditioner. I luv this treatment because it does just that. It also has the algae extract so your receiving the conditioner that help to make them health. Plus, the panthenol has Vitamin B, which gives the brows an extra boost of condition. When you apply it first your using it as a primer so this will make your brows thicker that gives a fuller effect. Yes, you can use it day and at night. This step will help to make them stronger.

So what do you think? If your obsessed with brows like I am don’t sleep on Jane Iredale brow products. If your not sure which product is best for you just book a lesson with me so that I can assist you with shaping your brows.



Fun Day At Work With The Mannequin Challenge 

Today was so much fun at work as we attempt to try the Mannequin Challenge. It’s a lot of work trying to get everyone to stand still. We could not stop laughing, moving, and blinking. We decided this will be a practice run in later go all out once we get my girl Amy, the marketing genius involved. Johnny and I came up with this idea 💡 to get all the staff including some of our clients in the next one. The only client in the one we did today is Maria Reyes, she was so excited about getting in the one we did today. Take a look but understand the next one with be HOTTTT!!




Creating Makeup Videos At Work Today


Johnny turned a regular day at work today into a production set for me at least. He suggested that we do a new post for one of my makeup services at Whip Salon called “What’s In Your Makeup Bag”. So here my crazy self go in suggest that we also do a video showing what’s really in my makeup bag. My poor Dior cosmetic bag is so full that I can’t even zip it because I’m afraid that I’ll break it. But what is a girl to do, I can’t help how much makeup I roll with daily, lol.

So below you will see a few funny videos that I think you will luv. I had a blast filming with Johnny. He goes hard for all of this, that’s why we make a great team.



I have lots of goodies, do you use any of the products that’s in my makeup bag?

If you pay close attention you will hear Johnny say “Quiet On Set” luvvvvvv!!!! Johnny was my inspiration of making the video black & white because he had this Hollywood classic look going on. I wish you could appreciate his fashion today.

Stylist Erin is trying to imitate Queen B…feedback.

After a busy day of work this is how I unwind in just chill.
