During the week of Indie Beauty Expo NYC 2017 (IBE), I hosted “Makeup Mania” at Credo Beauty (Nolita) with Antonym Cosmetics and Nu Evolution. This was an evening full of clean beauty, makeovers and makeup tips for those interested in green beauty. I’m already a Credo customer, so it was super exciting to collaborate with them for this event.

How beautiful is this space?


I opted to wear this off shoulder, casual party dress that I grabbed from Amazon for only $16!


It still amazes me to see my photo on marketing materials alongside brands I love.

Cathy Tolpigin, Australian Celebrity Makeup Artist


Cathy Tolpigin, celebrity makeup artist, flew in all the way from Australia for IBE, and to participate in our event. Cathy has always had a love of fashion, beauty, color, and design with a career that spans nearly a decade in the fashion industry. To achieve the best possible look Cathy uses only the best organic and natural beauty products that are cruelty-free and gentle on the environment. She is passionate about organic and natural cosmetic products. I was super honored to meet her.

Nu Evolution Cosmetics


NU EVOLUTION® launched in 2014 by Nadine Cormier and Sandra Anderson Diaz, two executives who spent their entire careers in New York’s Fashion and Financial industries. As beauty junkies and style obsessed fashionistas, they set out on a quest to find alternatives to the phthalates, parabens and other harmful ingredients in mainstream beauty products.

Due to the lack of stylish yet healthy options that reflected their taste level, they created a natural and organic based cosmetic brand, with a sophisticated color palette, innovative high functioning formulas and packaging that reflects their true passion for high fashion, beauty and pop culture.

They stand behind all of the ingredients used in their products. Simply put, what you see is what you get. This is a long awaited gift to women who have been yearning to use the quality, stylish products they demand without compromising their well being.

Antonym Cosmetics

Antonym Cosmetics is a line of makeup that is gentle on the skin and the environment, yet offers exciting colors with strong pigmentation and gorgeous luminosity. The entire makeup line is Ecocert certified. Antonym Cosmetics has proudly coined their line, “gentle face fashion.”
