I recently met Ms. Marquita online (below), a professional make-up artist in St. Louis, MO. Her radiant skin and flawless make-up struck me and I simply had to know her beauty secret! Green is certainly her color! This is what she said:

I use vitamin E creme to moisturize my skin. It works wonders! It’s not oily and it absorbs well. The foundation on my pic is custom blended; it was in the kit I purchased at school.

I love M.A.C. cosmetics foundations also; there are several you can wear alone or blend together to achieve the perfect look. I was afraid of wearing different colors on my eyes at first, but when I started playing around with them, I realized there were all kinds of colors out there that complimented my dark complexion.

As for my work, I just look at a face and create…

Thanks Marquita! Keep shining and best wishes for a fab beauty career!

A Beauty Secret from A Beauty Pro…

Kelly Laws, CEO, MakeUp On The GoKelly Laws, founder and CEO of MakeUp On The Go, a traveling beauty service in Gary, Indiana says:
Hey Everyone!
Just wanted to share a beauty secret of mine.  One of the products that I highly recommend is the Philosphy Skin Care Line.  The Purity Cleanser is very gentle and removes all–and I mean all makeup including eyeshadow and mascara without stripping your skin.
 
Kelly Laws closeupI also enjoy using their Microdelivery Exfoiliating Wash which gently removes the dead skin from my face.  I then follow with their Hope In a Jar moisturizer.  This miracle cream is not greasy and heavy yet works wonders on my skin.  I love the fact that it’s light with a smooth texture especially on hot and humid days. 
If you’re not sure whether you will like it, ask the counter for a sample pack to see if it will work for you.  Enjoy!!! 
If that’s where Kelly gets her glow, we’ll definately try it!
Thanks Kelly!
