Hello clean makeup and beauty products.
They say the more you know.... well the cosmetics industry is DIRTY and I know it. I had started to learn about how all these chemicals affect our health and I couldn't ignore it. So I started looking for high performance makeup and skincare without all the toxic junk, thankfully I found solutions. One is products from a company called Beautycounter and another is finding a source for the best brushes and tools.
I was such a skeptic that when I was first introduced to Beautycounter, I refused to try it because I had the attitude that I was too good for anything not in a big department store, after all I AM a makeup artist. Newsflash….. I am not too good. I figured I would give it a shot and placed the most random order to try a wide range of the makeup and skincare. I was impressed but the real test started on my next shoot on set. Would the camera love it as well? YES, Mr. Kodak gave it a thumbs up! ;)
I have been playing in the makeup playground for a while now and have curated a must have list just for you. Be sure to know that I have put these products to the test on myself and on set.
I have spent countless shoot days testing the makeup on every photo, film, and commercial set I was booked for plus all of my personal makeup lessons too. I have even used Beautycounter on my top profile clients (celebs) and have been thrilled with the performance of the products. My curated list of favorite skincare, makeup and tools have performed well under pressure and I am confident you will love this list too.
Success was found on every single set!
I may be a professional makeup artist who has played in the makeup world for over two decades but I am also a woman on a quest to clean up her world. First step, personal care. I never knew how dirty the cosmetics industry was, how many heavy metals we actually ingest from our lipstick or how many toxins we absorb from our skincare but I do now and spreading the word is part of my mission.
It’s time to dump the toxic wasteland lurking in your cosmetics bag. I’m not doing this just for me, I am doing this for all the women I teach about makeup and skincare, including my own daughters.

Countertime Regimen Set
"I had a drawer full of makeup that I had no idea how to use. "
I kept buying stuff in the hopes that it would make me feel better about the way I looked. One session with Kendall taught me so much. She showed me how to make my eyes look bigger and brighter without looking overdone. She taught me how to bring out my cheekbones and play up my best features. I am almost 60 and now when I apply my makeup, using the techniques that Kendall taught me, people say I look better than I have in years and I don’t look “made up.” I now know how to use makeup to enhance my features and I feel much more confident about how I present myself in the world.
"I had never had a makeup consultation in my life and Kendall made it look so easy!"
"She put me at ease and explained each step. She also made the experience fun and gave me tips I now use everyday as a teacher, since I don’t have extra time each morning to spend on makeup. I found her style to be fresh and realistic, especially for a busy mom and teacher like myself. She answered all my questions and gave me great ideas for how to use makeup each day.”
"Kendall’s make-up artistry is truly magical!"
"What an amazing difference in how I looked and felt after she applied her touch. One of the most important benefits of working with Kendall is she is so good at creating a process that is unique to my ‘mature’ skin, face and lifestyle while being practical for me to utilize daily. I feel so confident now that I have a routine that really works for me. Thank you Kendall!”
