About Me

“Fashion pictures are about teamwork, so if you have the best editor, hair, make-up, models – all the best people – then you are by default pretty good.” (Patrick Demarchelier 2010)

The only limits we have are the limits we set for ourselves. Contrary to what the media will have you believe, you don’t have to be the prettiest to get a gorgeous look. Let’s be honest by admitting that even the ones deemed to be the most beautiful need to be transformed into beautiful swans with the help of  a team of stylists. Hey, I’m not complaining (and neither should you). Just embrace it. I’m a little obsessed with hair and makeup…just a smidgen-not much. Just a whole blog’s worth! Hair and makeup may seem like trickery to some but it’s magic to me. You can’t always explain why you love a an editorial in a magazine or why you love the way your neighbor or a friend puts a look together. All you know is when you see something you like or you love, you say to yourself “wow, I love that look.” Well this is what this blog is for. Enjoy and If I already didn’t say it, welcome to the Makeup Files.
