Instead, focus on key ways to bring out the best in your features. Beauty is not about covering up what you think is wrong, it's about celebrating your individual style and feeling great!" In 2005, she teamed up with fellow makeup gurus, Giannina Giraldo and Harmony Williams to found Picture Perfect Makeup, a company offering services in everything from Bridal Beauty to Makeup Lessons in the DC area.

    Harmony Williams: Hi, my name is Harmony Williams and I am with Picture Perfect Makeup. Here today we are in DC at PRatPartners. Today, we're going to start off by doing a look on Kelly of doing bronzer and blush. What I'm going to show you is the easiest way to walk up a house if you only have a couple of minutes. This look is going to give you a nice fresh glow all over the skin. We are going to start by going down her nose, across her forehead, through her cheeks and by doing this, this has given her a highlighted bronzy glow and very healthy and radiant. You just go back and add where you need. Next, what you're going to need is a blush. This is going to pop out her cheek. You want to go in a downward motion, but follow the cheek. Then, again go to through the nose, chin and forehead just to give the extra pop up color. Now, we are going to follow along with doing lips. We are going to start with a lip liner, then a lip gloss. I'm going to first online her lips. Then we're going to follow with coloring inside the lip line. When you do this, you're not going to see a lip line if your color is a little different as far as your gloss is concerned.

    Now, we are going to apply gloss. To Kelly, I'm going to apply a peachy color, just to carry through her look. Now, when Kelly is in a hurry, and she only has two minutes, she can walk up the door looking fabulous. .
