Well…there’s just no two ways about it.  Great makeup requires good skin!  Period. Even as a pro makeup artist, there’s only so much covering up you can do.  If your skin looks great, the less makeup you have to wear and the fresher you look…no mystery, really…. 


So, I’ve teamed up with Deb of Integrated Aesthetics, owner and therapeutic skin care guru!  She offers treatments for sensitive, sun damaged, dehydrated, acneic and maturing skin… as well as complete maintenance for healthy skin.  Basically, you got a problem….she can fix it! PLUS…She can rock out your brows!  She’s passionate about researching ingredients  and only recommends products and services that REALLY perform!
