Los Willows Wedding Estate

I have been so fortunate to do hair and make up at some of THE most beautiful venues for saying those “I do’s”.  This past Saturday I found one I truly LOVED- tucked away in beautiful Fallbrook, CA. Intimate, charming & a dream come true for the glam squad! Had to share- brides to be, check it out!  Here’s the Estates link, my behind the scenes pictures & a sweet love note from Saturday’s Bride. ❤

Los Willows Private Wedding & Event Estate

to everlasting love, elegant updos & hidden gems,



Night out touch up essentials!

Small clutch +phone/make up/keys/wallet= forced to be extremely selective on what accompanies you on a big night out!

Im breaking down what I held close to me in my Michael Kors clutch on my latest evening out.

There’s nothing worse than a make up meltdown on an important outing with no back up. If you apply good primers and products while glamming up, these vital back ups are your beauty insurance! These are what I kept with me last weekend at a party this past Saturday at Southbay Studios.

#1 Touch up- a good powder to “powder your nose

Lights, camera, SHINE! Ever looked at a picture from an important night to find oil overload and a glisten a little less than glamorous? YUCK! My pick for the evening? Revlons PhotoReady Powder. It works well to conceal shine & even out skin tone without being TOO heavy!

#2 Duo Eye Lash Glue

My one and only trusty eye lash adhesive, Duo! Putting lashes on adds an instant flirty confidence to any eye look, but there is nothing more embarrassing than a malfunction in stay power! Take this for that JUST IN CASE moment!!

#3 Lip Touch ups-liner, lipstick. gloss

Not all of us ladies do the three product lip..I keep all mine handy but at a minimum a gloss MUST stay close!  My choice? MAC‘s in c-thru. Basic, great shine & trusty! (click HERE for my favorite nude pout!)

#4 Eye liner

When sporting a sexy smokey eye, eye liner is key. For me a liner being handy is essential! My favorite liquid liner is CoverGirls, and I keep one in every clutch,purse & kit! Needed a touch up or two to guarantee a great, bold eye look!

Along with these goodies, my gold clutch was stuffed with my id, debit card, key, and my handy iPhone. Thank goodness my phone has a great camera, heres a few pictures from my FUN NIGHT OUT! 

to making every carpet, your red carpet!
