Hi all!  My name is Kat and I have been working in the beauty industry for a decade now.  I have had the good fortune to work with some amazing companies in that time, not to mention some amazing clients!  I’m so excited to share everything I’ve learned with you.

People should say, “Wow!  You’re gorgeous!”–not, “Wow!  Your makeup is gorgeous!”

I would describe my aesthetic as minimalistic.  I believe people should marvel at your beauty, not your makeup.  I use cosmetics not to drastically alter your face, but to enhance your features.  I loathe the “Instagram brow,” and the homogenization of beauty bloggers.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a profound respect and appreciation for all artists, but I love authenticity and uniqueness, and I don’t think we all need to look like Kylie Jenner (not that she isn’t FAB)!  With that being said, color is my drug.  Whether it’s a pop of color on the eyes, or a statement lip, I love creating editorial looks.

When it comes to the age old question, skincare vs. makeup, I say both!  But if pressed, I would choose skincare all day long.

You can use the most expensive and technologically advanced foundation and color you can find, but if you’re not caring for your skin you won’t get the flawless look you desire.  A good look always begins with skincare.  A woman with beautiful skin can wear Cover Girl and look flawless!  (Remember middle school?)

My obsessions are skincare, glitter, and lashes…so be prepared for a heavy dose of all three!  Now let’s get pretty and painted!
