Ehihu Island Wedding of Katie & Simon

 

Katie and Simon’s wedding took place on a beautiful private island off the coast of Stonington, Connecticut. With 130 guests on a warm, sunny day, this boho chic wedding was definitely a day to remember.

Lorna from team Jennie Fresa, was the makeup artist on the job…”Katie was a dream to work with! Her look was uncomplicated and relaxed, she is a true natural beauty inside and out. For her easy island look we swept Luna eye polish by RMS on her lids, Sculpt and Glow contour duo  by Lily Lolo on her cheeks and  Ilia lip conditioner in the shade These Days for all-day kissable lips. Katie was truly a vision and it was an honor to be a part of her magical day. We are so delighted that we were featured on Martha Stewart weddings!”

Elihu Island, Stonington Wedding
August 23, 2017

Allison + Justin

June 24, 2017
Stonington Sweethearts
This girl! I love everything about her! I might be a little biased because she grew up in Stonington CT (also my stomping ground), she loves diy projects (my weakness) …and well she is just so darn likable! For Allison’s wedding day look she wanted a bit more of a modern, chic vibe to play off of the bohemian setting of the farms on Elihu Island.
We played up her gorgeous eyes with a bit more bold contrasting eye shadows using golds, deep smokey browns and lots of mascara. Lipstick was a sweep of deep nude to intensify her natural lip color and we finished with touch of bronzer with a soft rosy cheek. I was honored to have played a small part in Allison and Justin’s amazing Elihu Island wedding! Congratulations to the two of you!

Liz & Jake

A Vision of Rose Gold

Liz and Jake met at camp at the Avon Old Farms Academy, so it made perfect sense that these two love birds tie the knot at the beautiful grounds they grew to know and love. Such a sweet bride and a vision in touches of rose gold. Even her romantic, blush ballgown was a dream in a hue of soft pink. So lovely, the pink wedding gown even got the stamp of approval from Grandma! Congratulation Liz and Jake we wish you all the best!

The 3 Stages of Detox…with a Natural Deodorant
January 12, 2017

Hi Beauty Friends!

Are you guys ready to take the next step into living a healthier lifestyle?! If so then get ready to DETOX!

Don’t worry I’m not encouraging an all green liquid diet for the next few days, but instead take a Takesumi Detox journey. This bamboo charcoal deodorant will allow your body to get rid of built-up toxins and bacteria.

Stage 1: (weeks 1 & 2)

During the first few weeks you will question if the detox is even working and will start to notice you are producing a stronger body odor. Don’t freak out, this is normal! You are at the beginning stages of giving your body a chance to detox and getting rid of the bacteria that has been clogged in your glands…gross I know.

Stage 2: (week 3)

You may notice that you are sweating a lot more than normal. This shows that the detox is working, and the toxins and bacteria that are trapped in your glands are finding there way out!

Stage 3: (week 4)

The underarm odor is almost gone! You will start to smell as good as new as long as you keep applying every day. The activated charcoal will continue to act as a daily detox and will leave you feeling fresh and clean!

*During the detox process it is important to reapply a few times throughout the day, exercise to start sweating the toxins out quicker, avoid eating processed foods, and stay hydrated!*

Shop the Takesumi Detox online here! Happy Detoxing!!

Before and After Brow’s by Adi
October 6, 2016

The one thing I won’t leave my house without, is my brows. I’m the girl with the super light eyebrows that get lost in the tiniest form of light hitting my face, and to me there is nothing more powerful than a woman with fierce brows. Therefore I am that lady at the grocery store with tired eyes but fabulous brows and the confidence you wouldn’t expect. My brow confidence comes from my go to brow enhancement Jennie Fresa’s Brush on Brow, a powder that helps creat a more symmetrical look. I choose to use the Brush on Brow for most of my clients too, especially if they are a little wary of enhancing their brows, most people feel they have a heavy hand when it comes to “filling” in their brows. The powder allows you a more natural look no matter your technique. Wether your a first time brow enhancer or a seasoned veteran I think this is a great product all of us should own.
