Here’s a little bit about me:
After over 15 years of working my way up the corporate ladder, my life changed dramatically in the spring of 2008. My best friends and I took a trip to Paris to celebrate 20 years of friendship. It was a week of beauty, culture, and general laissez-faire. I had a wonderful time there, and what I took home was not just a dozen Eiffel Tower key chains (I think I packed at least 24 of those), but a spark of an idea for a new life plan.
I witnessed what I perceived to be a “Parisian Lifestyle”. In my imagination, this lifestyle included balance, creativity, and beauty. Ideas that were sorely lacking in my Starbucks guzzling, cell phone chatting lifestyle. So, I made a plan. It was a dream, really. In my ideal, I would do what I love… which is Makeup. I would create a space where I could do Makeup surrounded by beauty. In my dream, I would take my Sister along for the ride. She is a manicurist, and loves nothing more than to take care of people and give them pretty toes beyond their wildest dreams.
In the spring of 2010, we opened ROUGE MakeUp and Nail
Studio. It’s a little boutique nestled
in a quaint red building in my hometown of Ferndale, Michigan. It’s a new beginning. Here, I do what I love; creating “effortless”
looks for women like you and me. I found
a lovely makeup & skincare brand that has three really big things going for
it. I chose Eve Organics, and this is why: it’s Local (Buy Michigan!), it’s Organic (up
to 98%!), and it works beautifully. I am
very passionate about environmental issues, and I am a bit of a
perfectionist. Eve Organics just makes
my job that much easier. I can erase
dark circles, perfect complexions and create lovely day-to-night looks.
I was honored when Eve Organics Founder, Sharron Pinheiro asked me to help out with the Eve Organics Blog as a Makeup Artist. It is my wish that I can be of service to you, the consumer, in helping you trouble-shoot, pick out colors, and perhaps offer a bit of inspiration.
I look forward to helping you find your most beautiful you.
Here’s to Life, and Eve Organics!
