One of my favorite accessories after getting dressed whether it’s for a casual event or a special occasion is a beautiful, seductive bottle of parfum. Each perfume I select has a story of how I am feeling at the very moment. Some days, I feel pretty, sexy, flirty, fancy or just fun and romantic. Not only do I buy for the packaging, but I buy for the lovely notes.
Being a Celebrity Makeup Artist I got to travel a lot with my celebrity clients that I looked forward to traveling with them to find the fancy perfumes that’s not here in the States. So each of those perfumes would have a special memory for me. Usually, it’s a flirty one.
Ladies, if you have a husband like mine who find it scary when I go perfume shopping because he’s allergic to almost every perfume. Here’s a tip that I found to help me when selecting a new one. When selecting your next new scent look for a perfume that is more spicy and woodsy in scent.
Here are my favorite new scents I want you to check out and now you can begin your own stories.

OMG, can you believe it? The day has following come. Entitled Beauty online store is Now Open for business. It took us 1 year to plan with many days testing out colors, coming up with names, and just having fun creating Entitled Beauty. Being an entrepreneur is not an easy one. With both of us working hard at our regular jobs we first started with Makeup And Martini’s NYC doing makeup review videos. With the success of Makeup And Martini’s NYC we are now consider a Vlogger. But for us makeup junkies we wanted more, we wanted our own makeup line. We’re just so excited that we finally did it. We are starting with 10 highly pigmented perfectly matte lip colors that has 3x the pigments then most.
All of you bloggers will appreciate that us beauty influencers are proud to say we are now owners of a makeup line called Entitled Beauty. We both wanted a signature color to call our own. So Johnny and I worked hard at creating a shade that we would personally rock on our lips. Johnny color is a beautiful pink called Venice and I chose a flirty violet purple shade called Orchid.

Another big day to add to my list of special accomplishments in my life. My partner-in-crime Johnny Lumoa and I are heading down to Danbury City Hall Permit Center to finish up the last of the 2 important paperwork we needed for Entitled Beauty.
So elated about this day because we both have been working hard on Entitled Beauty. Starting a business is such a special moment. Yes, I’ve done it before in New Orleans but today I’m still excited about our baby Entitled Beauty. Having Johnny, someone who believes in me and my love for makeup standing next to me as a business partner I know we will be successful. I wish I knew how to do a back flip but just look at our smiles that should say it all.
It’s OFFICIAL!!! We are legit…we are in it to win it!!!! I hope you give us a try.
To celebrate our big day we went to Brio to grab a few drinks and bites
OH, FYI…my lip color is ANASTASIA, from Entitled Beauty.
New Colors has arrived for Entitled Beauty so we now have a total of 10 bold liquid lipsticks. We will have them ready to sell right before Thanksgiving. So, if your looking for a new lipcolor for yourself you can find at least 2-3 shades that you will like. Here is a sneak peek of 2 new shades that we both feel is our signature lip color.
Yesterday photo shoot with Lifestyle Blogger Ilse was done on location at Stamford Town Center. Today we both needed to get new content for our social media pages so I took a trip out to Stamford in Ilse neck of the woods. Because I was doing a sponsor post I needed pics of me wearing the the foam loafers that I was wearing from Floafers and Ilse needed new casual pics for her blog. I selected a black pair of the loafers so that I can wear them when I’m working at the salon, on set, any assignment that I would be on my feet for long hours. I figured black would go well with my all black wardrobe. I can honestly say I LOVE THEM! I’m not a CROCS shoe girl because I didn’t like the slip-on and the shoes was not the most stylish looking. I always felt like I was going to fall in them. I need support when I’m working. The last thing I need to worry about is falling. I’m not sure why but my feet didn’t do well in them. I would swell up so so bad in the CROCS. So, it was a relief to see that I didn’t have any problems wearing Floafers.
Let me tell you guys about these foam loafers because I’m now obsessed. Not only are the shoes very stylish and comfortable the shoes are; lightweight, breathable, scuff proof, that have sectional traction so you won’t slip on wet surfaces, it’s made out of antimicrobial foam so they will protect you from odor, mildew, and mold. And the price is easy on the wallet. These loafers are great for anyone that is on their feet for long hours. I wore them all day and my feet did not swell up that’s not normal because when I’m on my feet all day my feet is usually swollen. As you all know my battle with lupus I look like elephant man by the end of the day. Well, not yesterday. So if you know of anyone that suffer like I do I recommend a pair of Floafers.
After a hard day of working taking beautiful pictures both Ilse and I was ready for lunch and of course cocktails so I suggested Kona Grill because we both wanted something healthy for lunch. I know I know we both had cocktails but it was Happy Hour so we couldn’t resist the COSMO75 they were DE-LIOUIS!!!!
Hot Off The Press…beauty writer from the Today Show reached out to me being that I am a Beauty Expert and a Celebrity Makeup Artist what I could suggest for the article. Below you will find my 2 picks but read the full article to see the others.
While we love counting down to the holiday season, we are not a fan of how dry our skin gets as the weather gets cold.
TODAY Style is here to help! We asked celebrity experts, dermatologists and makeup artists to share their favorite products to stay hydrated this winter season. The best part? Everything can be found in the beauty aisle at your local drugstore.
“This foundation will bring moisture to your skin and plump it for 24 hours. That means a radiant, flawless, natural look thanks to the main ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Using a damp beauty blender, I like to apply it in an upward and outward motion. It’s a weightless, non-greasy, oil-free, non-comedogenic formula that won’t settle into fine lines. And it comes in 10 blendable shades,” said Brandy Gomez-Duplessis, a celebrity makeup artist and co-founder of Entitled Beauty.
“This primer will boost your skin making it look radiant and hydrated (and flawless and smooth) like you’ve been Photoshopped. The primer is infused with grape and vitamins A, C and E to nourish your skin with anti-aging benefits that will help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Apply the primer with a damp beauty blender by patting onto the entire face. Your makeup will last all day, keeping you selfie ready!” said Gomez-Duplessis, who has worked with Kerry Washington and Jennifer Aniston.
