I met Mona Rai through my best friend, Julie Remo, twenty years my junior, and my go-to for all that is hip. She sets me straight every time, and if you love your friend, “honesty is the best policy.” It’s a hard pill to swallow, but from Julie, I know it’s from the heart. The take home here? When Julie gives you a recommendation, it’s good, and one of the best was the makeup wizard who did Julie’s wedding day look.
My daughter, Brynn uses Mona whenever she needs to put on her face for a special occasion, and when she comes home, every time, I wish I were twenty again. (I wish I were twenty anyway, lol) Mona also did my over forty visage for my first blog photo shoot, and she can glam up just about anybody and make them look like the cover of Cosmo.
Since not every mom can take the time I do, because I am totally out of my mind with make up, we can focus here on a more natural, quick look that will get you from drop off to pick up, including a cup of coffee. Check out Mona’s blush tutorial here, set to music for that feel good blushing feeling. Lol
This Jersey girl will not disappoint, and her signature full lip has me begging for Restalayne …but all she needs is a pencil and lip color.
