A Waxing and Makeup Event! These are 2 of My Favorite Things!
Happy Mid-January! I hope you still have momentum to make 2013 the best year ever!
My wish for you this year is to find ways to make your life more fulfilling from the inside out AND the outside in ;)
As I am on the home stretch (roughly 6 weeks away) from receiving baby Marks as the latest addition to our family, I will be referring you to some women that are EXTREMELY gifted in their professions.
Being a fashion stylist, my clients also ask me for advice on overall image. Everything from hair to nutritional advice to makeup tips to how to store jewelry/accessories...etc. So fortunate for me I have some phenomenal experts at my disposal to draw from and introduce you to.
The two wonderful ladies I would like to highlight today are Ellie McDougal (Professional Waxer) and Barbara Zanzig (Professional Makeup Artist/Lash Specialist). Both of these wonderful women are at the top of their biz in experience and offer fantastic services to their clients in the Madison/Middleton area.

My personal experience with Ellie:
Ellie and I have been friends for 5 fun years. When we had the same blond hair color, we got mistaken for the same person...a lot. I told her she was my "Twinkie" and since then, that is what we call each other :) Ellie is a very knowledgeable waxer. She was the first esthetician that gave me the skinny on waxing, how it works, and how I could maximize the benefits of waxing.
Previous to going to Ellie, I would set up an appointment for a bikini wax a few days before going on vacation (big mistake!). After my service, It would be painful, red, blotchy, and the most undesirable thing I would EVER want to show off in a swimsuit.
In-grown hairs were guaranteed within a few days after my service and every time I left the spa I would think to myself "Was that worth the pain and money?!"
I have fair/sensitive Polish skin (thanks Dad!) and "stubborn" hair (double thanks). I was told by other estheticians that the combo between me and waxing was not good. I had given up on waxing and decided to stick to my razor, which still gave me bumps and didn't remove the hair as close as I would like.
One night Ellie and I got on the topic of her passion and profession (10 years experience) of waxing. After sharing my experiences with her and hearing what she thought the problems might be, I was convinced that her level of experience and education on the subject might help me achieve a smooth, hair/bump free bikini line.
I have been consistently waxing with Ellie for almost a year now and I am seeing a huge change! I now get a Brazilian Wax every 5 weeks. The Brazilian wax is her most popular service! That does not surprise me, because this girl is amazing at them! My hair grows in less and less with each wax and is much more manageable. I could never go back to shaving now. I also have Ellie shape my eyebrows when I come in and she is truly an artist! Instant eye lift ;)

My personal experience with Barb:
Barb and I have been friends for 6 wonderful years. We met working together at MAC Cosmetics in Madison. Within the first few weeks, I could see the obvious talent she brought to the counter and her electric personality was one you always wanted to be around. She quickly gave me a wonderful nickname that is still used between us today, "Tiny Bunny Big Heart" or "TBBH". It means, I am a tiny bunny with a big heart. She usually introduces me this way to her friends and clients, which is followed by a confused look on their faces and me saying, "Hi!, I am Tiny Bunny Big Heart, but you can call me Krystle." It is the best nickname I have ever had!
Barb is not your average makeup artist. She can do EVERYTHING from everyday beauty makeup to the outrageous and creative. You would definitely want her to do your makeup for a halloween party, new years eve, weddings, photo-shoots, or any other special event/party. She has 19 years of professional experience and has graced hundreds of faces with the delicate touch of her brush in that time.
I look up to her in the field of makeup artistry and owe most of my tips and tricks to her teaching hand. She is truly a gem as a person and in her talent.
