A few weeks ago Amy Scalia owner of Cincy Chic surprised me by asking if she & her team could interview me for their online-publication entitled “Women To Know”. There were five of us all togehter and I truly felt honored to be one of them. I even shared a few things about me many people may not have known. Click HERE to read it…enjoy!
ps. yes that’s me in the photos above…LOL! That was truly a fun & exciting photo shoot, especially since I’m always behind a camera working vs. being in front of one striking a pose. The photographer was playing Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied”…can you tell!? LOL

Did you see the 63rd annual 2011 Emmy Awards last night? …the pre-show especially! Seeing the red carpet interviews on awards shows is truly a hair, makeup and fashion stylists addiction. I always love the variety in every one’s style not matter the look…the good, the so-so and even the “that’s just wrong”. I always seem to focus on the good in any situation.
The two key factor things (outside of everything else) in looking red carpet fabulous are LIPS & LASHES! And when you emphasize one one vs. the other talk about amazing!! It was truly hard to choose who I wanted to blog about the most but for some reason Kerry Washington (in red) & Evan Rachel Wood stood out to me the most.
To achieve Kerry’s fabulous lips & lashes, try these products:
– MAC Cosmetics: Individual False Lashes (variety pack) in “30 Lash” / $15 @ MAC
– NARS Cosmetics: Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella” / $24 @ Sephora
– Mally Beauty*: Volumizing Mascara in “Black” / $20 @ MallyBeauty.com
(HINT: add a touch a lip balm over “Cruella” to give a slight sheen if the matte look isn’t your style & white eyeliner on the lower inner rim of the eyes only to make them appear a bit larger & brighter)
To achieve Evan Rachel’s fabulous lips & lashes, try these products:
– Yves Saint Laurent: YSL Rouge Volupte silky lipstick in “Spicy Pink” / $34 @ Sephora
– Ardell: False lashes in “Wispies” / $4.49 @ SallyBeauty.com
– Maybelline*: Great Lash Washable Mascara in “Very Black” / $5.49 @ Walgreens.com
(HINT: apply Mally Beauty “Lightwand Eye Brightener” in the inner corners of the eyes to brighten the eyes)
