Perfect Brows with Beauty Babe by Sabrina + Giveaway

Perfect Brows Giveaway

Recently featured on WGN for her expertise in creating perfect brows, Beauty Babe by Sabrina can help you achieve a younger look and the perfect arch with her notable “Eye Brow Lift” and sculpting techniques.

Sabrina claims that the key to achieving perfect brows is “a steady hand and a great pair of tweezers…and most of all, a professional such as myself! I can show you what should and shouldn’t be done to your brows. With guidance and restrain, I can (in most cases) regrow brows or simply reshape them. After that, maintaining is a breeze with touchups every few weeks or months.” Continue Reading

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and there is so much to do! Make dinner reservations, book spa appointments, plan the perfect date night outfit and kick-up your beauty routine. For the last task, I turned to Beauty Babe by Sabrina.

After gaining experience in advanced techniques and tending to hundreds of entertainment clients while abroad, her return to Chicago in 2005 led her to being noted as one of the leading makeup artists in the Windy City.

Inspiration for Sabrina’s work usually comes from speaking with the person she’s working on and getting to know them. “I use this as a reference for what I should do and how I see them. Their guidance helps me bring out their natural beauty and radiance.” Continue Reading

Happy New Year! I know I’m late for my first post in 2015, but it got off to a beautiful start with my sister-in-law’s wedding this past weekend at the Newberry Library. Both being English majors, it was the perfect setting for her and her husband to start their new lives together.

What was also perfect, were the custom bridesmaid gowns designed by Project Runway star, Peach Carr! I mentioned that she would be designing them in my first Chicago CatWalk interview with Peach back in November, and they turned out beautifully. I’ll have to share some photos with you when they become available!

Anywho, we are currently experiencing the coldest temperatures of the winter, so it’s time to bundle up! While the shredded jeans I wore during slightly warmer times might not be the best option for this week, the down jacket, scarf and Prada boots are great accessories to have during this arctic blast. Just make sure you don’t let the salt on the streets ruin your shoes!

I just got back from a beautiful vacation with my family in sunny Florida. As you can see, the weather was gorgeous!! It was in the 80’s most of the time, but our first night there the temperature dropped to about 70 (gasp!). It was the perfect opportunity for me to break out my new blush pink leather jacket by Mackage.

While perfect over my grey chevron silk tank top in Florida this time of year, it will also work well in Chicago winter temps layered over a sweater! Oh, and my new grey Givenchy Antigona Duffel that Santa brought…I cannot wait to style that beauty with this jacket too!!
