If you’re following me on SnapChat (@brittgarrison), you know that I was in Cancun for 4 days last week before I posted highlights on IG. I had SO much fun with three of my childhood best friends [since middle school] and came back feeling refreshed. It was literally the first vacation that I didn’t need a vacation from in my adult life and I loved every moment of chill.

Hello, it’s me…lol
Over the past 30 days I have been on what I call a “life detox.” After discovering some extremely disappointing truths, I found myself slumping into a negative headspace. I slowly started to spiral out of control due to letting my emotions govern my actions. And it was obvious to anyone that saw me both in person, or on social media. I needed more than just a hand wave in front of my face to snap me back into the present. I needed to really focus, and channel my emotions inward to get back to the woman I used to know.

Usually my preferred glam airs on the naturally enhanced side of things but I was feeling like a bad gal last night and decided to express that through my makeup… Then have a photoshoot in my bathroom lol (check out my mini “slay series” on my IG – @brittgarrison). But I love the way this look came out and wanted to share more info/unfiltered photos so you can see the true colors a little better.
If you want to know what products I used to get this look keep reading!

Last week I had some free time one evening and decided to play in makeup. I ended up posting this look with two different lips – I had no idea it would turn out to be such a hit (for real) but I’m so glad it did! Thanks to everyone that left comments on Facebook and Instagram! I really appreciate it 🙂
If you were one of the many folks wondering what products I used today is your luck day!

Can you believe we are in February of 2016 already!? It’s scary how fast the days and weeks fly by! It feels like we were just celebrating Christmas and New Years yesterday… Seriously.

I just posted a new tutorial, and it’s inspired by one of the most anticipated movies of 2015…50 Shades of Grey! Now, I know Anastasia wore a very natural “normal girl” look in the movie but with all the remixed beyonce songs I came up with this look based on how the combination of the movie and soundtrack made me feel… I wanted to create a look that was so innocent, yet so damn sexy! So here it is… my “sexified” Anastasia Steel makeup tutorial :-p

A couple of weeks ago Tracy Garley (my fellow Spartan and Owner of Zarkpa’s Boutique) approached me about collaborating on a few events during my next trip home to Detroit. I will admit that I was a little nervous being that I have been predominantly based in Los Angeles for the past 3.5 years, in addition to the fact that I had only done one on one classes with clients and close friends! BUT, when a door opens I believe you should walk in swinging, giving it your all! So without further ado, I’m excited to announce that I will be hosting my very first makeup class in Detroit, MI on Sunday, November 16th, 2014 at Zarkpa’s Boutique! Ahhhhhh! 🙂

Hey guys! I felt like playing in color last weekend and have been obsessed with the makeup from Beyonce’s music videos for the songs “Blow” and “Mine” so I decided to do a make up look — pulling the neon bright lips from Blow and the colorful smoky eye from Mine. If it’s too much for you, feel free to tone down the lip but I just love it! Let me know what you think in the comments section! Product list included below.

Hey Guys! As promised, here is part 2 of my skin clearing tips. Last time (for Part 1 Click Here) we talked about diet, keeping your pores clean, skin type, avoiding scrubs, and scar prevention. So this time I want to dig a little deeper – I’m going to touch on “special issues” that can cause acne, specific skin care lines that I like, natural remedies, prescription meds, and make up options for acne prone skin!
Please note that this post will be written a little differently as I share a little more about myself along with acne tips… It’s long, but I know it will help someone! 🙂
