A New Year, let’s review..

Happy NEW YEAR!  I would like to introduce myself to you.  Some of you are new and I would like to say HI!:

I’m Michelle Bouse.  I am a reformed Jersey Girl (born & raised), who followed her heart & moved to California in 1998 – but I’m not your typical California girl.  I am a retired professional dancer over 40 who’s second career is Beauty.  I love giving back, inspiring others, chocolate is my weakness and I’m addicted to tea & newly found love – Yoga.

I have the gift of seeing beauty in everything, everyone & making people feel good.. and feel it’s my job to share.

2015 is a BIG Beauty year for me.. I am celebrating 15 years (what?! how is that possible) as a industry make-up artist and 10 years (is this even possible) as an esthetician.  I can’t believe it.  These days people call me a beauty expert.

Last year I was on The Doctors tv show twice, my second Lifestyle Lift commercial aired as an expert with Debby Boone and I finished my final certification for Volume Lash extensions.  One of my clients won her second emmy, a bunch of clients got married, had babies and appeared all over TV!  I also expanded the boutique with certifying Linda as a OUIDAD Curly hair expert, carrying the product line exclusively and introducing the boutique closet, carrying clothing.  (Not to mention my Boys and Girls Club team won a trip to Nationals for their 4th year in a row).

One of the BEST beauty introductions was THE BEAUTY BOOKENDS with my beauty best friend & fellow celebrity make-up artist, Dia Dibble.  We started shooting short YouTube videos for anyone over 40 looking for beauty tips.  We have had a wonderful response and requested live appearances.. so we will continue the videos every month in 2015.

But why should you stop by here and say Hi? (hmmmm)  Well, I like meeting new people, like to talk and have a bunch of beautiful things to share.  I hope to see you here again and would love to hear about your beauty successes, questions and inspirations.

Here’s to a New Year filled with beautiful possibilities..

Why Toner? Do you use it?

I never thought I needed Toner.  Then I started studying skincare & aromatherapy.  I did a test on my face.. this is what I found:

Now at 42, I have noticed a BIG difference in the tone of my skin, brightness, firmness & lack of breakouts since using toner regularly.

I have noticed my girlfriend Dia’s face change too.  Her freckles are softer, less wrinkles, more brightness and more hydrated skin.

It’s GOOD for your skin!  Just cleanse and apply then follow with your fav moisturizer.  I love to use hydrosols as well – aromatherapy & skincare combined!

PS. This video screenshot is both of us without any makeup on our SKIN.. (only eyes.. LOL)
