I love watching HGTV and I love finding great buys for my house, so when I was called to do makeup and hair for HGTV Endless Yard Sale TV show I was excited!

We traveled from yard sale to yard sale with 3 groups of women to see if they could find the items they needed to decorate their favorite space in their house.

After each group of girls would find the bargains that they bought from one yard sale the designer Kim Myles, from "Myles Of Style", and the expert appraiser Elyse Luray , from If Walls Could Talk, would tell them if they spent their money wisely to get a good bargain as well as to fit their design.

It was great to hearing the tips that Kim would give on how to incorporate their items into the new decor. It was especially interesting listening the history and value of various pieces. It made you feel like you were going back in time. If you didn't get a chance to see the show, view it on the HGTV web site. It is quite informative!

Beauty Questions

Beauty question: "How can a guy contour his round face?"- from Mark in Florida.

Answer: When you contour a woman's face, you need it to look round and soft. When you contour a guy's face you want it to look strong so I like to create more angular lines. I normaly start by shaping the forehead with a bronzer like Tarte Bronze To Go on the temples to make it look a bit more square, then I apply it to the sides of the face to give the jawline a more square shape as well.

I don't apply to much, just enough to look natural but keep him as masculine as possible.


My favorite thing is a bit unusual. Since it was so hot, I kept drinking water, but when it was time to address my sweet tooth, I prefered to have a Edy's Fruit Bar instead. It is refreshing and cool in the summer heat but has vitamin C, real fruit and is only 80 calories per bar. Better than the ice cream from the ice cream stand that everyone else ate!
