The Summer Look with Mac to the Beach

When I'm on the set, I love browsing the makeup artist's collection.  I'm like a kid in a candy store.  Most artists use Mac Makeup.  Partly because of the discount offered by Mac Pro, but also because of the quality and colors.  This week, I discovered an amazing collection to help kick off Summer.  The Mac Beach Collection encapsulates Summer with beachy shades and creative packaging. The eye shadow reflects beach side glamour, and the names just scream Summer... firecracker, humid and sand and sun.  The ultra-creamy bronzer guides weightlessly onto the skin to provide safe, sun-kissed color. The peachy shades of lipstick in beachbound, funbathing and lazy days completes the look.

Available at Mac Cosmetics

Step into Summer, and enjoy your new look!

Hair Today. Gone Tomorrow!

I've been contemplating trimming my little one's hair.  I love his head full of gorgeous, blond curls. Well, my five-year-old made that decision for me. After a long day of juggling the boys, auditions and rush hour traffic, I was exhausted.  I stepped away for a moment to take off my makeup.  When I left, the boys were contently snuggled on the bed watching TV.  For some reason, my older one was suddenly inspired to cut hair. He dug into the desk drawer and retrieved the scissors.  He chopped off the center chunk of his bangs. Then, like Edward Scissorhands, he went to town on his brother's hair. There were fistfuls of blond locks on the floor, and my little one was bald with a row of curls at the bottom. It looked like a toddler mullet. My little one had a big smile on his face. He was pleased with his new look.  My oldest one was hiding. When he finally reappeared, his lower lip was quivering, and he told me, "Mommy, don't be mad.  I left his curls."  I rushed them to the salon where they recreated my oldest son's hairstyle into a spiky do.  For my little one, the stylist just smiled and said, "It will grow back."

AFTER THE HAIRCUT:




The moral of the story is never trust a five-year-old.  We've had many discussions about scissor safety, but you never know when inspiration might strike!
