Please meet my favorite gel eyeliner and cream shadow bags: the Stilazzi clear actor bag. Two of these bad boys fits on the sides of my Zuca Flier. Love it!!!
It’s not everyday that you get a hand written thank you note. Especially from an executive chairman and most especially when that chairman is William P Lauder. It’s a crazy world out there, I tell ya! I am so grateful for all the wonderful things that have happened to me in my life. And it becomes clearer to me everyday that I am nothing without the people that love me, believe in me and have taken a chance on me.
For four years I have been doing the makeup for a wonderful organization called Dancing Dreams. Bobbi Brown (owned by Estee Lauder Companies) asked me if I was interested in volunteering to do makeup for their dancers. I thought it sounded fun, and at the time I had no idea how much it would positively effect my life. Dancing Dreams, a Queens-based non-profit, provides classes for aspiring dancers with mental and physical disabilities. It’s the dream of these little girls to put on a tutu and glitter—and dance just like other little girls their age. In 2002, Joann Ferrara, a pediatric physical therapist with a background in ballet, was inspired to make the dreams of these girls come true.
The dancers feel so special when the professional makeup artists arrive to help them don their sparkle for their annual dance recital! They love looking in the mirror at their makeup, which mostly consists of glitter- and a little bit of lip gloss and blush. They ooo and ahhh at all of our professional makeup, brushes and tools- a special treat for sure! As we do the makeup the air is teeming with excitement in anticipation for the big performance! They’ve been working all year for this show!
Catlin Wooters has been volunteering her time with me for the past two years.
Dancing dreams is having a ribbon cutting ceremony at their new Manhattan Location on Monday, May 20th from 3:00-6:00pm at The Museum of the City of New York, 1220 5th ave. If you would like to attend and learn more about the organization, you can RSVP at info(@)themadmediagroup.com or call 516-659-8704.
Special thank you to Allison Grigg from Estee Lauder and Kim Soane + Cassandra Garcia from Bobbi Brown. Thank you for your love, believing in me and taking a chance on me. It’s made all the difference in my life.

I met Jenny at the Williamsbrides event in February and we hit it off! For her trial we did a makeup lesson and wedding trial in one. Jenny was married at the same venue where I had this wedding styled photoshoot, remember? Congrats David and Jenny!
Isn’t this dress amazing!?

Can you spot the differences? I changed the Lindsey Jones Makeup Artistry logo and moved it down to the right. I also changed my font from Trade Gothic LT Std (Like Shu’s) to Geosans Light which you can get for free here (thanks Pugly Pixel)! I also put more social media action onto the bottom of the chart. And instead of using a vertical bar | to separate my info, I decided to go with two forward slashes instead // (which I could have sworn I used to see a lot on Nowness). Face drawn by my favorite graphic designer, Tabitha Emma. As far as functionality goes, I changed the Lips section to just “Lips:” because I found that I just didn’t need that much space. Also, I found that I was highlighting and contouring a lot more so I gave myself two different lines for that. I used to have the name and date at the bottom, but that made it very difficult to find in my files! So this time I didn’t put “Name & Date” with a line, but rather just left space at the top. That way I can write whatever I desire, whether it be a designer’s name and shoot date or a brides name and her wedding date. I’ve already started using the chart for my first two bridal makeup trials of 2013 and it was so refreshing to see a new, fresh and functional layout!
