Avoid powder white faces in pictures!

"Jules...why am I seeing so many celebs with this happening to them? What products are they using to get that look? I know that SPF in products gives that white look but you'd think the makeup artist would know better! "

I have seen this way too much! Nicole Kidman & Eva Longoria both had this happen a couple of months ago. If can be a few of things:

1. SPF 25+ is notorious for reflecting white since the active SPF ingredient is Mica (a white mineral). It could be the under eye product had too much SPF.

 2. Translucent powder (also white) is often used under the eyes to catch loose shadow so it can be easily brushed away. But you can't forget about it! 

3. MUFE's HD powder if not properly blended can also show super white! It's a fine velvety powder which can bounce light just like the SPF. 

With all of that said, a professional makeup artist should be trained enough to avoid all of these possible blunders!  Hope this helps!

A New Dollface Team Member!

Dollface has been very busy & growing strong with new projects and our newest division, Dollface Photobooth.  Along with growing comes "growing pains" with having more business than artists.  Yes, this is a fantastic "problem" to have but it's never ok with me to say no to anyone based on availability, especially when a vendor has recommended me.  I've been working on finding the best addition to our team and I have found a great one.  Allow me the pleasure of introducing, Karen Hough!

Karen has relocated to Ft. Stewart from Kansas City with her husband and beautiful daughter.  Karen was looking for a reputable team to join and I was looking for a talented artist.   She is skilled, professional, & sweet- the perfect Dollface fit!  You can read more about Karen & see her gallery of work by visiting:

I'm also proud to announce that the new cover of The South Magazine is the handy work or both of my dolls, Karen & Cade.  Don't know Cade?  Don't worry, you will- she is incredible.  

Please run out and buy this April/May issue on newsstands now!  I'm very proud of my team and can't wait to showcase more of their work.  Thank you to each and every one of you who have supported Dollface and helped us grow.  I raise my glass to you- Cheers!
