Facial Cleansing, Exfoliating, Moisturing, and Sunscreen

Cleansing your face is an act of kindness to yourself. It's okay to be kind to yourself. Don't let anyone tell you different. The simple act of washing ones face comes in many different forms. It can be as simple as a glycerin soap with luke warm water to intricately formulated steps and regimes. There are so many products to choose from, it's finding what works for you. If you're a beginner, I suggest keeping it simple to start. It's easier to get a routine underway if you don't overwhelm yourself with too many products. As you become more familiar with cleansers, toners, moisturizers and such you can broaden your daily routine. Second, moisturizing your face is so valuable. Yes, know your skin type and any problem areas like acne. Yes, see a dermatologist if acne can not be kept under control with over the counter products. Years ago when I was a counter manager for a high end brand, a customer told me she used bag balm for her moisturizer, which farmers use on cows utters after milking. Now days you can use it for many purposes. But, it dawned on me then that although high end brands are amazing, just the act of moisturizing the skin will help to keep skin soft and youthful. Exfoliating is next on the list of to do's. Depending on your skin type a weekly exfoliant goes along way to get rid of old skin cells and keep skin more translucent and bright. It too comes in many different forms, from clay masks, to small granules used as a gentle rub, a peel formula that applies like thin paste, drys, and then you peel it off, even a moisture mask that helps to hydrate and loosens old skin cells. You don''t need to do them all, but choosing at least one method will suffice. No matter your budget or accessibility cleansing, moisturizing, and exfoliating your face is essential to help maintain a more polished, clean, fresh look. Doing these acts of kindness, will create a pattern of care that will benefit yourself inside and out.


















Being open to the balance between talent and technique, the brides unique beauty, and her style and vision, inspires me to create an individual experience and illuminating results. The talent came early on in my life. I was just 15 years old when I found my natural talent. The technique has been honed over 20 years of doing hair and makeup. The thousands of faces, the unique canvases, the artist applying the art. Makeup, brushes, and sponges, are essential to the craft. The hair, oh the hair, lots and lots of hair. The comb, the spray, endless bobby pins, the heated hair utensil in one form or another. All an extension to my craft. It must be the fairy god-mother in me wanting to embellish and enchant the beauty that lies within all of us. The wedding is the brides and grooms spirit releasing its harmony in love. Hence, the bride on her wedding day inspires me with her own unique beauty, style, and vision.  I collect many details that help me to absorb the nuances of her wedding day. The brides hair and makeup ideals, dress style, color, flowers, hair accessory, wedding colors/theme, bridesmaids dress color and style, ceremony location, and venue give me the additional background I need. Finally, her vision of hair and makeup.  It can be a series of photo's she emails me or her pinterest link that reveals her hair and makeup interests. This special attention to detail helps me to create the illuminating balance that lets her shine. The many compliments that follow remind her she is a radiant, vibrate, and a beautiful women and soon to be wife.

Beauty Obsession vs Beauty Freedom

     You don't have to grow up in the modeling industry to know how beauty obsessed we are in this culture. It is everywhere. Yes, we can get carried away with always trying to live up to the standard that the beauty industry creates.  When taken to the extreme, it can cause much internal pain and suffering. Let's rethink this ladies. I believe we can shift our thinking to make it all work in our favor and enjoy the freedom to choose what we really want in our own lives. There is an endless array of cosmetic products and fashion available all the time and constantly changing. It is easy to get lost and feel overwhelmed.

     First and foremost,  we need to focus inside ourselves. I know it can seem less painful if we just look outside ourselves for the answer but, leaving us feeling lost. We are individuals, we are diverse, we see things differently. We need to respect that in ourselves and in others. We can define our style from the inside out. Remember when you were little and your friend asked you "what is your favorite color or colors?" and you were able to answer that with confidence. Or, when you saw our favorite flower and became excited. We would pick it and savor it's beauty by bringing it home, putting it in water, and hoping it would last forever. Well, those are reflections of our inner wonder, fascination, and beauty. We enjoy certain textures over others. We see things at different angles and different light. We are constantly learning about ourselves, growing, and changing. We need to stop trying to put ourselves in a mold and start molding ourselves from our own discoveries. It is more fun that way. It is true freedom of self expression.  When your lost or feeling overwhelmed by the media image of beauty, just look inside and explore and define the wonder that is you.
