Like many women, life tends to complicate achieving my goals, but notwithstanding career changes, marriage, and raising children I continued to follow my passion. Today, I am affectionately known as the woman that helps all women look and feel just a little prettier. I have built a business of perfecting beauty for women. Stop in and see Faces Beautiful whether in Connecticut or On-Line. It’s the place to "feel prettier".

I welcome the onset of spring. I love spring cleaning and getting my makeup and clothes organized for warmer weather. In this month’s ALLURE Magazine, April 2011 Issue, page 100, they gathered advice from Makeup Expert, Sue Devitt, founder of Sue Devitt Beauty; her clients include Uma Thurman and Jennifer Connelly.

Sue’s advice was to:
·         Store Makeup away from humidity and heat, which both degrade products.  *Wipe down lipstick cases and compacts with a wet wipe, and wash brushes weekly in warm soapy water.
·         Organize makeup by type and color and day and evening in clear plastic trays.
·         Color code lipsticks by marking a sample on a small white sticker and put it on the top of the tube.
·         Replace mascara and foundation every three months, and lipstick and gloss after a year.

I agree with Sue on all of her points, but I take even a step or two further.
·         Separate your spring makeup and colors from your winter products. Put your winter products away.
·         Place your lip glosses in a cup, color side up so you can easily choose the color to best coordinate with your outfit and your makeup look.
·         Stand your makeup brushes up in a toothbrush holder or a cup that allows each brush to not touch the others.
·         Wash your brushes, with a mild soap, once every other week. Reshape the brushes and lie them down to dry.
·         Clean the gunk around the rims of your lip glosses and lipsticks. Take a tissue and wipe off.

Let me know how this works out for you!
