It Doesn't Get More Transparent Than This!

For years, I would avoid letting people see me without makeup on. I still cringe at the thought of leaving the house without feeling "put together" (ie: no sweat pants in public and at least lipgloss and mascara). So - this is what you are NOT seeing:

I'm showing you this because I want to tell you what a fabulous experience I had tonight with two lovely MaryKay ladies and my dear, beautiful, friend - Heather. We laughed, we learned, we lifted one another up and talked about our strengths and our beauty. And then...

I tried a new lip color, a new foundation color and technique, and check out those eyes (notice you couldn't see them in the first picture?)!

We were under no obligation to purchase anything and we gained so much. New friendships were forged, ideas were exchanged, and we left feeling beautiful and appreciated. Now that's priceless!

If you are interested in having your own evening of pampering and positivity you should email: and tell my friend Cathy that you want to set something up! (or visit her site: ) MaryKay even has a smartphone application where you can take your before picture and have a 'virtual makeover' and Cathy would love to show you that too. Even if you don't wear makeup, you need skin care - even if it's just some great moisturizer or sun screen...and a night of pampering doesn't hurt either.

Seriously - take some time for yourself! I wasn't truthfully excited about the evening - but now I am super glad that I did it. My take aways are worth ten fold the time I invested.

Thanks Cathy, Marge, and Heather - what a memorable night. You are all amazing and beautiful and I am proud to count you as friends.

May your paths be abundantly filled with lemons, sugar, and sunshine!



  1. Thank you, Crystal! You are so sweet, and I'm glad you and Heather enjoyed yourselves!

  2. I tried the eye primer today and it works really well - tonight I'll see about the masque and I'll let you know what I think. So far, I haven't found anything I don't like!
