Diamonds?  I’ve seen a mine-full.  
Pearls?  I’ve seen plenty.
But it’s not every day I see a bride work precious gold into her palette and portraiture.
Meet beautiful Ann; she did this brilliantly.  
Then again, when working with the likes of Richard Ellis Photography, eyes, jewelry, and backdrop are going to sparkle, too.
Ann went for the Gold in every way; I’d say she achieved it.

Just a quick shout-out to my trusted BFF’s. . .Brush Friends Forever.

This is where the real magic and creativity begins.  I love my brushes and they never let me down.  On occasion, one may have to be retired due to stray bristles or from a general wearing-out.  I lovingly wash them after every job.  They need to be clean, dry, and placed back into shape.  If this routine is stuck to, they provide years of loyal service: precise lines, smoked-out edges, smooth swipes of color, and lots of blendability.

My MAC brushes are my favorites.  Yes, I have a ton and I wouldn’t trade them for anything else.  There is a specific need for each and every one.  If you are serious about your makeup, get serious about your brushes!
