A Confession

My business partner, Robert and I at Tori Lucas and Jamal Crawford's Wedding.

My business partner, Robert and I at Tori Lucas and Jamal Crawford’s Wedding.

Well, I feel as though I’ve been missing.  Sometimes, in my creative state, I tend to “hermit,” to “hide,” to “go away for a while.” This is not only detrimental to my friendships, but also to the logical side of my work.  Logically speaking, it would make sense to keep updating the websites, continue with my tutorials, etc. However, in my brain, after a certain amount of time, I feel guilty, helpless, and as though I shouldn’t even bother to “right” it, and in fact, neglect the very evidence of work that propels me in this lifetime.

While I’ve been “away,” I have been welcoming incredible opportunities into my life.  My business partner, Rob and I have been working as famed party planner, Mindy Weiss’ beauty team.  It is a dream come true.  The weddings, parties, and splendor this woman dreams up are beyond anything I thought could come to life. Mindy is creative, kind, patient, and oh so calm.   Her team is just the best.  Whenever we work a “Mindy” event, we know we will be dazzled, and add the artistic icing to the cake for the ladies and gentlemen we work with to look fantastic.  Being a part of the bigger picture is so rewarding.

Here’s a quick synopsis to bring you back to speed!

Memorial Day came and went, and my momma in law and I went to the Burke Williams Spa.  It was a dream.  The staff there is kind and caring. I felt so safe and welcomed.  They even brought us little cakes at the end to thank us for coming!  It was so much fun!


And then the work: I’ll just post some of my favs:


San Diego

NapaRed Carpet Benefit



And we can’t forget Halloween!!!!


There have been many private parties, weddings, soiree’s, trips, and excursions that I can’t write about either due to non-disclosure agreements, etc. However, I can’t wait to show you the finished movie I worked on with actress/director/writer Sarah J Eagen.  When it is completed, you’ll be some of the first to know!

In the meantime, any questions, comments, please send me a line!  I sincerely wish you well, and hope that you have a safe, and happy Holiday season.  I’ll talk to you soon!

Love and Beauty,

    Thanks for sharing your honesty about your creative process and you personal journey. You are such a beautiful soul and bring so much beauty into the world, both through your work-of-art makeup creations and through the person you are. Adore you and so glad you’re in this world. You definitely make it a much more beautiful place.

    • I feel so crazy sometimes, Brooke, but I know that is part of “creative??” I love you and appreciate all you do for the world. I love Charity Girl Problems, and how you are most definitely reinventing the definition of what it is to give back. I adore you, and am so thankful for your kind words. Wow. Lots of love all around. xx E
