Make Me Pretty, Make Me Laugh – My book is done, 2017 update.

Hi All,

It’s been quite a little journey. I got this idea to write a book about my experiences doing makeup and then it late 2013 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, needless to say, it put a visible halt in my immediate future with having to get a lumpectomy, radiation and also pumped myself up with hormones in freezing my eggs (sorry, too much information, I know). Anyway, It was a trip that I don’t ever want to take again but since I usually like to look at the Silver-linings of things but in this case, it was more of a silver-uterine lining but I have to say, there were some positives. I finished my book! It’s called Make Me Pretty, Make Me Laugh. It’s a funny, how-to gift book about my makeup artist job with correlating makeup tips. Currently, submitting to publishers, agents and anyone who likes beauty. I also got married, became a step-mom and during all this stand-up took a back seat. As I get back on the horse, I realized I am coming from a different perspective. I want to help people become their most beautiful self. Ask me anything about beauty. If I don’t know it, I’ll find out for you.

Some other exciting news: I got married to the coolest guy on the planet, he’s snoring next to me, it’s heartwarming and annoying at the same time, I also became a step-mom. So, during the last three years, Stand-Up took a backseat because it’s no fun when you feel like shit. Cut to 2017. I feel like I have my strength back and as I get back on the horse I realized I am coming from a different perspective. I have a lot to say and I want to help people become their most beautiful self. Beauty doesn’t have to be about wearing tons of makeup or taking the perfect selfie. Or about never aging it’s about accentuating what you have and casting a subtle shadow on the things you don’t like and feeling like your prettiest self.  I’ll keep you updated but in the meantime, wish me luck, I would love and can’t wait to see this book become a reality.

Does this blush color hide my dissatisfaction with life?

Lately, I have been feeling a little low, maybe it’s the rain outside my window right now or the fact that I listened to an entire Richard Marx song, either way I feel a little out of sorts.

As a make-up artist you get to see all kinds of characters that come across your path. The other day a woman came in and you could tell she was pissed off. Like either she had just been fired, broken up with or her cat died… Even before she opened her mouth I knew and actually could smell that she was pissed.

I asked her if she needed any help and she said she was looking for a blush but that every one was either too light or too dark. Fuck, you’re one of those. I already knew where this is going.  I say, what color are you looking for? Pink, Peach, Bronz-ey, Purple? Cream or powder? Yes… honestly, these questions really do make a difference, we went on for this search for about 45 minutes of me and 45 minutes of me showing her every conceivable blush color there was in both cream and powder forms and I swear to god, I showed her 35 different colors and not surprisingly none of them were to her liking. The lightest pink was too dark  “no, I don’t like the peach that  one doesn’t look good with her nail polish!” Are you kidding me? Really, your nail polish? Ok, crazy I thought. I was getting internally frustrated but then I realized that this lady isn’t going to find the right blush…Because, it wasn’t about the blush at all, it was about her. She wasn’t ok in her eyes and no amount of anything cream or powder was going to hide that…You’ve heard that saying Everywhere you go, there you are… and there she was and very pale too.  A little blush would of really helped.
