My Lunch Date With My Girlfriend At Little Pub

 

img_4320

Do you have girlfriends that you chat with a lot but getting together because of busy schedules is overdue. I’ve always said ‘Nothing Worth Having Is Easy” that’s with anything in life including a great friendship.

Well, Bethani is my girl, she is my ride or die friend. She’s beautiful, she’s glamxurious, she’s a business woman that knows her shit, she’s a fashionista with a killer body & arms. Her love for dogs in need, and her love for makeup, beauty, and cocktails is everything I look for in girlfriends. We just have so much in common that I enjoy our time we have together.

Luv my Michael Kors sunglasses…can you see my purple highlights?

So my glow is Black Up Strobing Highlight Stick in Strobs 02 Medium 

On my way to meet up with Bethani I stopped to pick up sunflowers because I knew this would make her smile and bring joy to her day. Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity and that’s what our friendship means to me.

Bethani selected Little Pub in Ridgefield because it’s one of her many favorite places in Ridgefield. Because she lives in Ridgefield it was a location for us to meet up at because I’m always selecting Terra of Danbury. We talked so much that we could not finish our food. But I did get to try their crab cakes, they were delicious! So lucky to have a girlfriend like Bethani in my life.

What do you like to do with your bestie?

 

 

 

 

Fashion Night Out In New York

img_4226​When you get invited to attend a Fashion Focus Group in New York inside the Gregory Hotel given by Caravan Stylist Studio you know it’s going to be a fun filled glamxurious evening. The event was hosted by Claudine DeSola founder of Caravan Stylist Studio, actress Alysia Reiner, and designer Tabitha. It was a large group of women talking about something we all have in common…our LOVE FOR FASHION.

I met up with my gorgeous date for the evening Mindy at Grand Central. Mindy and I met some years ago at a photoshoot. Mindy was one of the Connecticut Housewives models for the magazine. While doing her makeup we just clicked talking about makeup and our blog. Mindy’s blog is called Finding Silver Linings. I luv how we both have grown at the same time as a Beauty Influencer.

Having fun on the train

 


 

Behind The Scenes Of A Makeup Artist At Work In New York


On Saturday I went to the city to do a photo shoot with 2 fabulous women, Felita Harris who’s a SVP in Fashion, and Tracey Baker Simmons a Exec Producer. Our talented photographer Karriem who does a lot of fashion and portraits work captured everything the ladies was bringing.

Whenever we work together lots of beautiful magic happens. I started working with the ladies in July 2011 and every time it’s a party. Felita sent me a storyboard of where they wanted to go with their fashion so it gave me ideas on how I wanted to do both of their makeup. The ladies always let me do my artistry sometimes I push it, but they know at the end it will be fabulous. Each time I try to give them something new something different, plusI always want to try out my new makeup.

Enough of my rambling see for yourself how much fun we had and all the gorgeousness that happen…Inside The Life Of A Makeup Artist

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.



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.

I had so much fun with Linda. She always wanted a smokey makeup look so I gave her a soft smokey eye. By New Year’s she will be ready for one of my glamxurious looks.

This is how Whip Salon Makeup Creative Director ends her evening!!!!!

Whip Salon Launch Party Was A Glamxurious Evening

I was so excited about today, being completely booked with makeup applications at Whip Salon and having my friend Annya (makeup artist) with me was everything. Can you believe she cut all her beautiful curls?

My first client of the day was Mrs Rosanne, luv her! She came by on Friday to see me to talk about the makeup look she wanted for today. She gave me permission to give her a strong eye with lashes. My kind of lady…here are all of the Jane Iredale products I used on her. The lashes that I selected was from Red Cherry. I like the Cherry brand a lot, their natural lash band is on point. If you put them on correctly you can not see the lash band, doesn’t matter how close someone get to you.


I definitely have to give a shout out to Lancome for providing me with skincare products to use on my clients at Whip salon.


Katie was my third client this morning. She’s a high school student at Ridgefield High, today is there Homecoming so I had a few girls booked with me and I luv it! I like mixing it up because I get to do a variety of makeup looks.

It was pretty cool doing makeup on Andrea being that she’s one of the designers of the salon. Andrea was getting makeup for our launch party tonight along with her business partner Rebecca.

I wanted to give Rebecca a sultry eye with Red Cherry lashes and a sheer lip color. I contoured her just a little not to much. I think she look amazing with this type of look.


Luv this #BOMBSHELL hair stylist Monique Ferreira
