Beauty Talk

Make up is an obsession, and yes, I can admit that.   I love experimenting new items and finding out what works best with my skin.   I can research different products, or try them myself, but the best way to know if a product works well is sometimes by word of mouth.  For this blog, I am introducing you to three ladies who I consider to be experts with make up.


Kylie is currently a stylist at a local Madewell store. Her passion is to travel.  She loves shopping, watching old movies, and rock climbing.  Her goal is to have one of her photographs featured in a National Geographic magazine.

Kylie’s Day-By-Day Essentials: Foundation, BareMinerals brow kit, Baby Lips, eye shadow primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion Tube), eyeliner (SEPHORA COLLECTION) and mascara.

Her favorite season and make up to highlight it: “Winter. Hands down, dark makeup and darker hair. More dramatic makeup.”

Date Night!

“On date nights I like to tone down my makeup a bit… I’ll typically do a light smoky eye and a natural lip color. I always make sure my nails are done, which I always do myself. Personally I feel like that’s a huge must!”
