Lately a lot of people have been asking me "what’s a good product line to invest in?" and "what brand should I buy?"
I do NOT work for a “line” or brand so I have no one brand to profit from if I suggest their products.
I use what works. Some high end, some low end, and little of everything in between.
Always invest in good brushes. A good brush will last you a life time. I LOVE Smashbox brushes (higher end). They are great quality, ethically made and they have red handles which catch my eye. If you take care of your brushes and CLEAN them regularly they should last 5-25 years maybe longer.

Did you know I have an amazing Home Studio?
I do All Bridal Trials and the Majority of Events Make-up in my home Studio
I LOVE my studio, its much easier for me to work out of my studio as everything is in its place. But I do on location work as well.
My studio is a work in progress so it will change as time goes by.. But I think there will always be a lot of Black and Hot pink in the Studio :)
