July Happenings at

It's July--the middle of the summer and a time when I start abandoning my normal makeup routines.  But July is a great time to start thinking about getting ready for the fall--to start taking stock of what you have in your beauty bags, to clean out old stuff and replace it with new, to start focusing on basics like skin care, and to learn more about makeup technique.  Summer school for beauty junkies is so much more glamorous than real summer school!

If you're looking for free beauty events near you--chances to learn about products and get some new beauty knowledge--head over to  The site will point you in the right direction.
