Summer Time Living In Connecticut On Candlewood Lake

After a long day of makeup artistry I always enjoy coming home in just clearing my mind sitting by the lake (Candlewood Lake). I just love being around water, digging my feet in the sand while drinking a nice cold beer. This is why I luv summer time.

Makeup Monday: Theodora & Callum Summer /Fall Video Shoot

#WaysToWear 
Recently, I was called to give Theodora & Callum’s Summer & Fall Video Shoot a pop of glamxuriousness. I coordinated a variety of makeup looks from summer makeup to day makeup, evening makeup and date makeup. I packed a lot of goodies from air-brush makeup, L’OREAL Sublime Bronze, plus my STILA Stay All Day Foundation, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Shadow Shields and so much more. 
Theodora & Callum scarves have been donned by fashionista Rachel Zoe, Kerry Washington, Hedi Klum, and even style icon Mick Jagger have been seen rocking these exceptional accessories. As thanks, I was given a scarf at the end of the shoot. I love surprises!  Stay tuned to their website, Youtube, Facebook and Instagram page to see how fabulous the girls looked and all the collection. Until then here is a behind the scene look of makeup with hair from the talented Brenden at Dream Dry Salon,
