I’m a beauty connoisseur (ok, beauty addict actually), mother of two ( Luke & Isabella = LuBella) and a native of the Southwestern United States.
Since I was 12 and bought my first drugstore cosmetics, I’ve been fascinated by makeup’s ability to enhance and transform one’s appearance. As a teenager I began receiving skin treatments at the first day spa in my hometown, long before that term was really even used. From then on, I was hooked. In 2000 I began working for salons and spas in a variety of roles, accumulating a ton of pro tips and had insider access to top notch services and products. While I’m also a devoted fashionista, cosmetics are my real passion because they can work for anyone and everyone. Despite your age, size or skin tone the right makeup always fits!
Why would a woman blog about mens’ grooming products and style trends? Because I grew up with men that cared about such things. My grandfather was an old-school Southern gentleman; tough and rugged yet always stylish. My father was a bohemian artist with a fondness for Birkenstocks, but he was always well-groomed: clean shaven with fabulous hair and even kept his nails manicured. So I know men do care about looking good (in their own unique way) but often do not get much exposure to new products, tips and trends that easily enhance masculine style.
I am SO stoked about beauty and this blog, I usually stay up too late and survive on lots of lattes, searching out the latest and greatest the industry has to offer just to share with you, darlings. I hope you enjoy it!
