About the author
Indulge in self expression through visual theatrics!
I guess, if anything is, THAT is my motto. It has been ever since I was a little girl; painfully teaching my family that THAT blue lipstick meant you DESERVED to have your head ripped off if you talked to me, and learning that putting on makeup was akin to possessing a new face, free from the wear and tear in your head.
No need to say much else, there’s only so much information to be offered. I started as a classical dancer, learned stage makeup, took up art modeling, learned to do makeup for art modeling…. The usual path of escalations. I love the versatility that can be offered when you get a great understanding of your face, products available, techniques. I can’t express the joy i felt when I discovered how to wear hot pink makeup! It really is art in its own way.
I don’t have particular occasions in mind for most of my designs. I’m just as likely to wear a dramatic look out to the grocery store as I am to a party.
I live with my three babies-a dog, a cat, and a boyfriend. There is no makeup so bad, the dog will not lick it off my face, and the cat has worn my lipstick numerous times, due to impromptu enthusiastic nuzzles. The boyfriend is finickier, and has been known to turn up his nose completely at the smell of a new lipstick. Can’t say I blame him.
Have fun poking around here. Feel free to contact me with comments, issues, product recommendations/information, or feedback here, or at dolce.aria.pdx @ gmail.com. I swear-I’m not wearing that blue lipstick!
