My beauty story…


Even before I was allowed to wear it, I loved make up. My mother still fights me on it, saying I look better natural…I believe her to be a crazy person. I do think a woman can look fresh faced and beautiful with no makeup, but makeup can enhance that beauty!  Winged eyeliner, bright lips, bold brows, bronzed cheekbones…I am nuts for it all!  I love to take my time, and enjoy the creative process of applying my makeup for a night out…or for a night in. Yep…I guess I just love me some makeup!  While I am not claiming to be a professional, I will own up to being a product junkie, and a makeup addict for long enough to know when a product is amazing.  I’m here to share with y’all my favorite beauty products, application techniques, and my favorite places in Chicago to get glam.


Never ask a girl with winged eyeliner why she’s running late y’all. Here I am with one eye down;)
