How would you describe your style and who are your style icons?

My makeup style is always changing--but I can say that you will rarely see me without a pair of eyelashes on. As far as fashion goes, anything big ,baggy and long is a sure bet with me. I love huge baggy sweaters and shirts --I can’t stand anything fitted up top and I don‘t have time when working to constantly be pulling things down and/or adjusting them. My closet is just full of black clothing--but I think that is true most people in the industry just out of necessity. My sister would be my style icon--she has a killer fashion sense and can rock just about anything.

What's in your everyday make-up bag?

Maybelline eye studio gel liner, MAC “crème cup” lipstick, MAC Paint pot, Bare Escentuals foundation (I wear this when I am on the go and not being photographed!), Eve Pearl blush, bronzer and highlighter trio,

What is your beauty routine like?

Extensive!! I exfoliate regularly and use Darphin skin products as well as Bio Oil and Coconut oil on my face. I also do frequent microdermabrasions and peels :)

If you could makeover a celebrity, who would it be and what look would you give them?

I don’t have an answer for this ;(

Any tips for someone wanting to mix up their look?

Don’t be afraid--I meet so many people who think they can’t pull something off just because they aren’t used to seeing themselves in it. What’s the harm in trying a new look out for a day?

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I am a craft nut. I love to have a project and I love to create I will do anything I can get my hands on . I just got a new sewing/monogram/embroidery machine so that is my little project for now. I spend most of my free time with my husband, our family and our sweet dogs.

There are too many I love! I don’t have any brand loyalty--I use what works the best from each line. Although ,it is no secret that I am definitely partial to Essie when it comes to nail polish.
