about me


 allow me to introduce myself...


Hi! My name is Colleen! Nice to meet you. I am a licensed cosmetologist (WA State Cosmetology License #71121) and have spent many years doing hair, however, my true passion is makeup artistry (Makeup Artist Pro Card holder with Makeup Artist Magazine). I was trained as a Makeup Artist with Gene Juarez Salon & Spas at their Advanced Training Salon. I have worked as a Counter Manager for Yves Saint Laurent Cosmetics and have done freelance makeup and hair for countless weddings, proms and special events. I LOVE makeup and like to get my grubby mits on as much of it as I possibly can (ranging from cheapy drugstore gems to pricey department store goodies that I have to hide the receipts from...but that's neither here nor there...) I hope you find some useful tidbits throughout this blog, whether it be my favorite beauty "picks" for the season, stellar fashion finds, tutorials on how to choose the perfect red lipstick, or whatever other totally random info I felt like "blogging out" that day!

  Personally...

I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I have a handsome husband and TWO gorgeous boys. They are my world. You may find some baby/family/lifestyle related stuff peppered in here that doesn't fall under the "beauty" category...variety is the spice of life, right?! Right. I love being able to stay home with my little bruiser and you can usually find us putzing around the house, (read: staying in our jammies all day and goofing off), shopping, cooking or out jogging through our neighborhood before Daddy gets home from work. I love to cook and bake and have recently started a "clean eating" lifestyle that I'm sure will creep into my posts now and again. Lastly, I should warn you that I write the way I speak, which translates to a curse word every now and again. If that kind of thing gets your panties all twisted up, I apologize in advance and will try my damnedest (whoops) to clean it up in the next post...

beauty staples...
