So excited to announce that I am now a SeneGence Distributor (better known as the company that sells “LipSense”). SeneGence is a privately owned, network marketing company that is in the business of developing and selling personal care products through an independent sales network (aka ME). If you can believe it, in 1999 Lipsense made it’s first debut and was their premier product (only coming in 6 colors) and now SeneGence has a complete line of long lasting cosmetic colors (eye shadows, foundation, blush, mascara) and anti-aging skin care products (face creams, eye creams, self tanners, stretch mark reducers).

For me it all started with one tube of LipSense (Praline Rose to be exact). I saw all the hype on social media about this long wear, long lasting product that was smudge free, water proof, kiss proof, cruelty free and vegan, so of course I had to try it out and once I tried it I was completely hooked. This lipstick truly lasted a good 9 hours for me and all I had to do was apply the gloss to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day!

How It Works:

LipSense is not a stain; it is a patented molecular bond, meaning it sticks to your skin and that is why you have to have clean and dry lips so that the pigment can “stick” to your lips.

SD40 alcohol is the delivery system for LipSense. It’s much thinner than water. After you apply LipSense, the SD40 alcohol dissipates quickly, only leaving the color in place. It also keeps the product bacteria-free for the life of the tube which is unlike any other lipstick.

Typically, the first couple times you apply LipSense you may experience burning or tingling and that means your lips are dehydrated; the skin is damaged, leaving nerve endings exposed… So heal those lips and exfoliate as much as possible and apply the gloss, even when your not wearing the LipSense color!!!

The patent is in the color, it would stay on without the gloss, but the gloss is the moisture. There is no moisture value in the color, it’s system that works together. LipSense lipcolor is a mechanical shield from the sun (like wearing clothes on your lips).

How To Use:

Apply 3 coats to clean, dry lips. You can use the tip of the applicator in the tube to get the perfect “lined lip” first before filling in the rest of your lips. Your lips may tingle and they will be sticky, so don’t press them together until you apply the gloss, which is your lip moisturizer. LipSense will last on your lips anywhere from 4-18 hours (depending on the PH of your body), but the average wearing time is 6-8 hours. Make sure to apply LipSense Gloss throughout the day, as your lips will tell you when they need more moisture. One tube of LipSense will last 4-6 months on average if you use it every day.

Below are the Lipsense colors SeneGence carries. I have almost all of these colors in stock, feel free to email me your order, or send me a selfie in natural lighting and I am happy to color match you with your perfect color. If you haven’t purchased Lipsense before I always recommend purchasing the Starter Kit (includes 1 color, 1 gloss and 1 remover). Below is also a breakdown of all of the glosses SeneGence carries. Then I can ship it right to your door within 24 hours of your email! Make sure to email me at

Style on ladies and gents!



This past weekend I had the privilege of working with and styling a shoot for designer, Michelle Hebert from Los Angles, California. Her designs are elegant and timeless, Hebert intertwines art and fashion that creates captivating designs for sophisticated women. At a very young age she pursued art, and within this pursuit she found her love for apparel design seeing people opposed to paper as a canvas. One thing she has never forgotten since her childhood was a statement by her father Achille C. Hébert II, “never give up your art”. By listening to his advice, Hebert’s designs to date have been worn by several entertainers such as Kelli Berglund of Disney Channel’s Lab Rats, Tracy Hutson from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and the 19th cycle winner of Americas Next Top Model Laura James. They have also walked down the red carpet at award ceremonies such as the 55th Annual Grammy Awards and the 2013 BET Awards. Within these next few months keep your eyes open for new work, new trials, new triumphs, and most excitingly an unreleased campaign. Below is a picture of Michelle Hebert at one of her shoots wearing a piece she designed and looking stunning and elegant as ever!



Hebert’s designs inspired me to style a bright colorful landscape on a tropical island. It took a couple weeks for me to find the perfect place to shoot these looks but after various trips around Arizona I found just the place! I collaborated with makeup artist Janae Shields, my amazing husband Mat Tondreau as my photographer and the beautiful and talented Kimberly Lopez as my model. Below are Michelle Hebert’s designs with a tropical twist. Enjoy!


















Behind The Scenes…
