So, last weekend, I think Saturday it was, I happened to check my email and was pleasantly surprised and flattered by one of the messages I found. Lady Erin of Bag Ladies Radio wrote asking if I would be interested in being the featured guest on her internet radio show. What an unexpected honor! Of course, I hopped to it to write back yes indeed, I'd love to!

So how do you use Etniq anyway?
Many of you have heard or read me talking about all the cool ways you can use Etniq Minerals right? Buuuut, you're still wondering about all that. How exactly do you do all these cool things? And what are all these cool things anyway? Well lucky for us all, I put together a little list. Tutorial videos coming soon!
Using your favorite eyeshadow brush, apply your minerals across the base of your lid, underneath your brow bone, and even tracing your lower lid. Experiment and play! For a bolder look, dip your brush into a bit of water beforehand, blot some of the water off and then dip it into your pot. The minerals will adhere to the water and create a brighter version of your minerals on your lids. Have fun!
You'll need a stiff edge, eyeliner brush. You can apply dry for a smokey line look or apply with a little bit of water (using the same technique from above) and apply a solid dark line.
This application is really simple as well. All you'll need is a clear lipgloss or a vitamin E clear lipstick. Dip the lipstick wand into the pot and then apply it evenly to your lips - super simple. For lipstick, you can do the same thing. In both cases, you can also mix the gloss or the vitamin E stick with the mineral powder on the side of your hand and then apply with a lip brush. It's really up to you. Explore which way gives you the application style you like best!
Nail polish is probably the easiest of them all. With a clear nail polish, dip the brush into the minerals and brush onto your nails just like you would any other nail polish. The color will spread and adhere just like nail polish. Apply a second coat for a deep look or stick with one coat for a glossy effect.
Any questions? Don't hesitate to email me for an answer!

Wanted to make sure I go pictures of my two new fall colors up! Introducing Pumpkin Spice and Cranberry!
Pumpkin Spice is one of the very versatile shadow shimmers than can be used for blush, liner, lipstick or gloss, and even nail polish! Yes, tutorials are on the way;).
I created Cranberry mainly as a blush but it makes a great shadow, liner, lipstick, lip gloss, and nail polish as well.
That's one of the many things I love about minerals - how many uses you can get out of them!
Again, Tutorials and buy links to come soon!

Well wow, it's been a minute right?! Yes yes, I have been a very bad blogger. Basically what happened is what happens to us all - life, lol. But now is the time to breathe new life into this blog! There have been a lot of fun, exciting things going on with Etniq!
So let's get two quick updates out of the way!
1. I've relocated to Little Rock, AR and so Etniq's home base has moved with me:). That means Little Rock again has it's very own mineral makeup line, woohoo!
2. I've partnered up with a wonderful woman at the coolest little store here in Little Rock as the flagship store for Etniq. The name is The Green Corner Store and Shelley Green is the fab owner. Any day of the week (except Sunday) you can stop by and get to play with makeup:).
1. Sync Weekly
, the local cool indy newspaper is going to be interviewing me soon! When the interview is available, trust me, you'll know:).
2. I've got new fall colors to debut! Pics, tips, and fun ideas coming soon!
Ah...it's nice to be back;).

Hello everyone! I wanted to post another makeover with Etniq. Again, I promise to remember to take before pictures in the future:). Here we used Coral Cool on the eyelids and as the lip gloss. It gave her lips such a great color! Her eyes are lined with Smoked Coals and on her cheeks is again Coral Cool! See how versatile this color is!

Greetings everyone! It's getting into wedding season and I wanted to show you all some of the work I've done with two recent clients. This was a mother and daughter. I've got to do better with remembering to take before shots as well, lol.
And yes, all the makeup used is Etniq;-). Aren't they gorgeous!
