Makeover Monday

The feature of today's Makeover Monday is Kelly Rippin, Monongalia & Preston County Reporter and weekend anchor for WBOY Channel 12.  Kelly agreed to model so that I could do a wedding makeup makeover at a bridal expo.  I wanted to do something really dreamy, with lots of shimmer & reflection that would make her look glowing.  **PUBLIC DISCLAIMER**  Kelly is NOT getting married anytime soon.  :)

Here is her before...

And, here are her afters...

I used gloMinerals alloy eyes eyeshadow palette-a very versatile, must-have for smoky eyes,
glo's blush lipstick-for a light pink/nude creamy base on the lips,
then I dusted glo's 24kt sparkle dust in silver, for a glowing, dreamy shimmer.  
Please contact me by e-mail or phone for more information about gloMinerals, a professional, full-line of pressed mineral makeup.

I have put together some information about doing on-site bridal & wedding party makeup.  If you're interested, please e-mail

Thank you, Kelly, for being such a lovely model.  I had so much fun doing wedding makeup!

Makover Mondays

The feature of today's Makeover Monday is Katie Smith, sports anchor/reporter for WBOY.  Katie is a self-professed sports enthusiast, but that doesn't mean she doesn't love makeup tips as well.  
Here's her before...
And here are some afters...

Katie wanted to accentuate her blue eyes, so we did a neutral shimmery taupe eye with black eyeliner.
It was a beautiful day outside, so we took advantage of some amazing natural light.

Thanks, Katie for being such a gracious model.  Next time, I think we should try a copper smoky eye ;)

Makeover Monday

Today's post starts a series featuring some beautiful ladies who work at Channel 12 News-WBOY.  I am so excited to showcase today's Makeover Mondays model, Stacy Jacobson.  Stacy is such a devoted news reporter, and she covers the news and the goings-on in Lewis County as if she grew up here.  She is always representing in the LC  ;)  Stacy has been a wonderful person to get to know.  She has been encouraging and compassionate to me as a start-up business owner.  She is completely dedicated to her work and is very professional and conscientious.  I really admire her personally and professionally.  She has helped build my confidence to promote my business this year, so thank you, Stacy!  I so appreciate it, and I am so glad we met.

Here's her before...

And, here are her afters...

I love that she wasn't afraid of color-in fact, she loves bright colors.  So, we had a lot of fun doing some purple eyeshadows, a cool pink blush, and then a really bright tulip pink lip.  I think she looks amazing.  Next, we are going to try a classic gray smoky eye with a nude stay tuned.
