Like a Pro!

I love to get my makeup done when I’m going to an event, or if I have the urge to make a quick change when I’m out and about on a busy day. Walk through a Nordstrom or a Sephora anytime of day and you’ll see young and old women alike, sitting up neatly on a cosmetics stool, having pretty palettes applied to their faces. I like to watch anybody having mascara applied, we make crazy faces when we do it ourselves, never mind a stranger with great make up, coming at you with a black wand. I am a highly skilled and trained professional make up artist, I enjoy playing in the field too. I’m really just a girl who loves a tube of new lipstick and the crack of a fresh slick glossy mascara. Why do we sometimes need, and always love to get our makeup done?

Lets tackle the obvious first. Weddings, interviews, head shots and anywhere you may be in a photo album for the next 100 years, should be done by a pro. Absolutely, no questions asked. There are so many variables of photography that are easily taken care of by somebody trained. The reason, not the only reason obviously, all of those photos in the magazines look great – the models makeup was applied properly and professionally. She doesn’t have shadows in strange places and doesn’t have a shiny nose and red ears. When you know you have a big event or something extra special, just make an appointment, you’ll spare yourself the worry and you won’t regret it ever.

Did you know there is a spa in New York that you can sign up for a monthly club and get your makeup done as often as you want? Seriously, go in before work every day and have your makeup applied by a pro. They also have the same operation for blow outs and waxing. It’s brilliant in my eyes, and everybody is groomed properly. Realistically, not many women can spare the time daily, and while the cost is more than reasonable it won’t be happening for me anytime soon. The point is – it’s there, and successful. We feel more confident, successful and sexy when we look our best and freshest selves. That’s a fact.

At Studio Makeup I offer makeup services for all of your needs, daily if you’d like, but I would much rather teach you how to be daring and gorgeous on your own. You can schedule an application for a special event or a full session with consultation. application and education.

You'll be a PRO!

Rowe’s Wharf? I say Rose Wharf!

Looking for something to do over the weekend or maybe on a weeknight for something to mix up the work week? Take yourself right down to Rowe’s Wharf in our states diverse and swanky capitol. The wharf was built in 1987 and is anchored by the now iconic Boston Harbor Hotel, it’s giant arch encompassing the harbor, for locals and travelers to enjoy. There is a busy marina, with fast and easy boat travel to Hingham and Logan International Airport. Boutiques bustle with the foot traffic of summer weather. It’s not always fun to walk around in the cold winter months. Have a afternoon cocktail, splurge on sunshine and the beauty of window boxes overflowing with flowers, next to our famous Boston Landmarks.

Boston Harbor Rowes Whart

I thoughtfully created the BostonMints lipgloss color Rose Wharf, after I spent a weekend at the gorgeous hotel and was taking an early morning walk while the city was still quiet.The blush pink flowers were still moist from sunrise and the color was stunning. I knew Rose Wharf would be the iconic sheer blush pink you could swipe on your lips. Sheer and cool naturally or layered with a lipstick for depth and an extra punch.

BostonMints lipgloss is the everyday lip product you need in your bag. Find your perfect color, or mix and match with 16 gorgeous naturally good for you shades. Vitamins E & C, Aloe and Spearmint for extra plumping and freshness keep your lips in top shape.

Shimmering Bean Towne

Google the word Beantown and everything about Boston comes up on your screen. Food, Fenway, fashion and everything in between can be found in this historic and foot traffic friendly capitol. But why beans? And how come you never hear anybody who lives here, EVER refer to it as such?

Without boring you to pieces with a history lesson, the nickname Beantown was thought to originate with the earliest settlers in Massachusetts. In colonial Plimoth beans were a staple item in the pantry. Beans were always on the menu. Honestly, in my mind, that doesn’t sound very appealing, no pun intended. Needless to say the legume is very healthy for you. The nickname and it’s origins  have come around a few times, but it has nevertheless stuck through history, and legend carries on today.

My BostonMints lipgloss color Bean Towne is the color for 2015! Similar to the Pantone color of the year ~ it virtually goes with everything. A gorgeous rich universal hue, you’ll love how full and rich your lips look and feel. Protect, pamper and heal with vitamins C & E and Aloe. Refreshing spearmint keeps your lips and breath cool and minty. Longer lasting than regular lipgloss and made to layer with your other favorite lip colors, you’ll never go wrong!

Overview

  • Handmade item
  • Materials: Spearmint Leaf Oil, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Antioxidants, Aloe Vera, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isostearyl Palmitate, Iron Oxides
  • Made to order
  • Ships from Boston, Massachusetts

 

Order yours today and be sure to check out all my other great colors available, including the NEWEST in my line,  Back Bay Berry and STRONG.

Nathaniel Hawthorne (/ˈhɔːˌθɔrn/; born Nathaniel Hathorne; July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist and short story writer.

Plum Island Sand

Located in Essex County, on the North Shore of Boston, Plum Island has been a favorite for families and and school trips for many years. The name Plum Island often conjures up images of picnics, fishing or walking on sandy beaches. Fruit possibly comes to mind also. The island was named for what was known as the beach plum, growing wild on the dunes over a hundred years ago. Today you’ll find boutiques, local eateries and Bed & Breakfasts to stay the night. At the southern end of the island is Sandy Point State Reservation, a day use only state park. You’ll find the last lighthouse on the island at the northern tip. Pack a picnic and a soft blanket and make a day of it. Watch the sunset and the boats pass into the evening. Don’t forget your bug spray though, you’ll surely regret it!

IMG_7833

I created the color Plum Island Sand with the beach dunes of Plum Island in mind. The color is sheer and cool, like the cold water that laps at the shores. BostonMints is an all natural product, created for my clients with the most distinctive and quality ingredients available. Vitamin C, E and Aloe Vera are essential to your lips health, a refreshing spearmint flavor keeps your lips cool and plump. Never tested on animals and also gluten free, it will suit even the most particular client.

Colorful You!

Do you know what colors look best on you? Most of us can simply look in our closet and see patterns of color or texture that works best for our bodies and skin. Neutrals, bold colors, all black? I never did wear that turquoise pantsuit… Why do our cosmetic cases become filled with random colors and textures that no matter how hard we try, they sink back to the bottom of the bag? Just like we do in fashion ladies, we need to choose the correct colors and textures that enhance the natural beauty and shapes of our faces.
