Lolita by Kat Von D...

Hey Gals, whats up with the lipstick by Kat Von D called: Everlasting lip stick in “Lolita” I guess its always sold out and hard to find, even get it on the internet. I went to Safora today to check out this super amazing popular lip color– and even the tester wasn’t there.

Fun Fact: There are only 3 or 4 makeup manufactures in the U.S. and 90 % of the makeup...

Getting married and not enough time for ...

“Caelie did a fantastic job with the makeup for my wedding.  I am not local so I did not have a chance to do a preview before the wedding day which made me a little nervous, but Caelie did a great job.  She listened to what I wanted and checked in with me while she was doing the makeup.  I was nervous that through all the tears and July heat that my makeup wouldn’t last and would be running down my face, but she assured me it would last 10-12 hours through all that.  She was right!  I am a huge crier and my makeup stayed put throughout the night, even through...

Elissa wants a natural makeup look...

Caelie was fantastic. She helped me feel at ease and was very professional and, most importantly, I felt beautiful on my wedding day! I rarely wear much makeup at all and had no idea what to do but Caelie worked with me to come up with a perfect look. Though I was wearing more makeup than I had ever worn in my life previously, I looked and felt like myself – something that was very important to me. I highly recommend Caelie. She was fun, super friendly and a true artist. I couldn’t have been happier! — Elissa Z. Oregon, 2011
