Get Strong Lushes Lashes With Lash Boost

Every girl dreams of flirty lashes and usually you can buy them for a one time wear, you can also do the 3 months wear but for someone with a medical issue (Lupus, Lyme, & RA) like myself I don’t want to wear fake lashes everyday. I want my own lush sultry lashes without wearing falsies.

I was venting to my client once about my challenge and she shared with me a product she was using called Lash Boost from Rodan & Fields. At the time I never heard of the company but after seeing her beautiful lashes bloom I knew it was time that I try out the Lash Boost. The great thing about the product is it can be used on the brows as well. Being a professional makeup artist for 20 years in the beauty and entertainment industry I’ve been offer so many products to try, but nothing worked. When they came out with Latisse I was excited but once I found out that a prescription was needed, I passed on trying it. All the facts about Lash Boost seems easy enough and safe enough for me to try. So l’m all in, I’m ready to try it. While your sleeping Lash Boost is working. Who’s in with me? Here’s my link to shop for any of your Rodan & Fields skincare products. Post pictures and share with me your results as I will do the same.

Red Cherry Lashes For The Glamour Girl

I’m so excited about using Red Cherry Lashes on my clients at Whip Salon during their makeup services. I selected Valley Of The Dolls Collection because I’m such a fan of the book. It’s a flirty and girly collection that appeal to the women of the 60’s era through to millennials. I luv the fullness and length of the lashes and the band is so thin that they blend into the natural lash line! The collection offers a style for each day, it’s like playing dress up for woman. Red Cherry Lashes are made of 100% human hair, cruelty free, and latex free.

This weekend when you come in for your makeup application you will know that your look will be complete with Red Cherry Lashes. #WHIPLASH

Prom season is now over up here in Connecticut, my last client was one of my favorite girl’s Jennifer. It was kind of a sad moment because this is the last year that I’ll get to do her makeup.Jennifer always let me do whatever look I want when it comes to her makeup. I wanted this look to be glam with a pop of color on the lips.Plus, I wanted to keep this makeup look glam yet on a budget. On her lashes I selected Sephora Collection lashes in Hipster.

Glam Makeup Looks That I Created At Sephora


The favorite part of my job is making women happy and feeling good about themselves. Last weekend each girl booked me to give them a glamxurious makeup look for their special events. With each of the girls I gave them all a custom makeup look. Only a few beauty items I duplicated but overall I used different products. Being at Sephora I have so many goodies to choose from that it’s a makeup artist dream job. Here is a list of items that I used, I’m sure I’m forgetting a few things. Hope you see something that you can use for your next glam makeup look.


Glam New Year’s Makeup Look With Glitter & Lashes

This is a fun New Year’s Eve makeup look I did 5 years ago with Tia Williams and Essence Magazine for a Shake Your Beauty segment. It’s so funny to see how my makeup artistry has grown since then. But I had such a great time at the Essence magazine office creating this glam New Year’s Eve makeup look that I had to share it with you. It’s a simple makeup look that could be done tonight especially if you luv glitter, lashes and bronzer.

Celebrity Makeup Artist & Beauty Expert Brandy Gomez-Duplessis quick tips for you to glam up your makeup this holiday season:

  1. Eye glitter: Glitter on the eyes always makes a girl smile. It’s like diamonds for the eyes. This fun makeup item can be used at the bottom of the eyes or in the inner corners. These sparkles will leave you feeling so glamorous.
  2. Lips: The holidays are a perfect time to wear Cherry Bomb lip color. It’s especially great when you want to stand out. Don’t forget to buy it in a lip stain or a long-wearing formula to keep up this delicious look.

  3. Lashes: Lashes are always a girl’s best friend. With great holiday choices (strip or individual), they are a must-have item that will make you feel sexy and look seductive. It’s an excuse to flirt a little more.
  4. Eye shadow: Metallic eye shadows are perfect if you choose to go with a smoky eye. Silver metallic eye shadow on the inner corners of the eyes and dark metallic in the outer corner and crease is always smokin’.
  5. Face: A highlighter on the face can be very sexy when applied on the cheeks. It’s a very simple and easy product that can also be used on the décolleté for a subtle glam effect.
