Hi loves!


Y’all can call me HK. Welcome to my life. Professionally, I am a makeup artist and hairstylist, so of course when you need a good lipstick recommendation-- I got you boo. But this is so much more than that. 


My real passion lies in helping girls. Think of me like that big sister you never had, or like the friend you go to when you need dude advice, or just that drunk girl in the bathroom at the bar who is there to be your hype squad for a min. That's me. That's our community. 

I am here to teach you how to be the best version of you. Not just in the physical sense, but how to truly feel your best. How to have the confidence to look in the mirror and believe you are the baddest bitch on the block.  This is my space to give away all of my secrets and hopefully pick up a few from y’all along the way as well!

OK so we’re talking about being attractive here. These are the things that you need to do to help yourself look more attractive to the opposite sex. Some of these things are cosmetic, things some of these things are things you can wear, and some of these things are just things that you can do while you’re in the presence of someone who you want to appear more attractive in front of.

Whether you’re trying to get the attention of someone that you like or you’re just trying to get a couple free drinks at the bar tonight these are some for proof ways to make you look...

The hands down number one question I get from people sliding in my DM's: How do you do your makeup?

I will tell you this when it comes to the makeup I choose to wear:

1. I like my routine to be relatively simple because often, I have to be up super early to get to jobs and I want to look good while i'm working with clients (obviously) without having to get up even earlier to do so. 

2. I like my makeup to last all day without touch ups. I am always on the go and I like to schedule my days and weeks by 'makeup' and 'non makeup' days. On non makeup days, I work from my...

MY LORD, IT'S BEEN A WHILE! I have had the busiest summer of my entire life. BMSHL Beauty had it's first "official" wedding season, I filmed the pilot for a TV series, and traveled literally everywhere. Needless to say, blogging took a backseat for a few months. But, we are back in business, y'all!

I figured the best way to start back up is to get y'all familiar with what I have been loving lately! I try to talk about most of my current obsessions as they come up on my Instagram stories, but in case you missed anything, I'm recapping everything here. We have a solid...

Almost daily, I receive messages about where I get different beauty services done and who I see. I love the little crew that keeps me looking (and feeling) great. They are all so fabulous to work with and do such an amazing job. I know just about a million industry professionals, and while all of them are incredible, this team is perfect for the specific look I am going for right now. They deserve all of the love in the world and this is my way of saying 'thank you' for all that they do for me! 

Side Note: I will not post any pricing information for any of these ser...

Some of the many things I have been loving in the month of March!


1. Fitbit Alta Gold | $149

I finally joined the Fitbit fam after much hesitation. I wasn't sure if I actually needed one or if I would even use it. Well, folks, I use it. A lot. I LOVE it. It's a nice reminder for me to get moving. I have noticed that since getting it, I have definitely been more active in my daily life than normal. I also love that I can track my sleep patterns as well! 

2. Pastel Polish for Spring! 

This month I have been loving wear pastel nail colors! At the beginning of the month &...

Any girl who has ever chopped her hair off knows all too well how much it sucks to grow out. 

When I was 18 & started college (just under 10 years ago-- ew), I decided to chop my long hair into an adorable little bob. My hair would start to grow and then would get to a very awkward point on my shoulders, and I would cut it again. This went on for YEARS. 

Finally I found a secret combination of things that allowed me to totally grow my hair out without any weird 'tweener' haircuts (thank god). 


Yep-- I did. Multiple. And I loved my fake hair dear...

I was never a skincare person. Ever. Why care about skin? That's what makeup is for, right?  NO. 

Skincare is so important if you want your makeup looking perfect (which I do). People literally ask me everyday about makeup and how they can make their makeup look better, or last longer. It starts with good skincare, people! 


Now, I can't speak for every skin type, but this is my personal, fool proof skincare routine. My skin is somewhat sensitive, and prone to the occasional breakout. After years of tanning and a few battles with acne during my te...

Y'ALL! It's my birthday month! I (and every other girl on the planet) like to celebrate this occasion all month long (duh!). I thought it would be fun to share with you the things that are on my birthday wishlist! Also, I figured this may be super helpful for anyone who is having to buy a birthday present for a special girl in their lives! (But let's be real I'm totally posting this so my family, friends, and Bill know what to get me). Prices on this list range all over but there is definitely some things on here to fit your budget!

1. Gucci Soho Bag | $980

Now, I do...

Come on, we all do it! We keep a few extra products in our purse for touch ups here & there! For me personally, I like to keep these products separate from what's in my makeup bag, because the products in my purse run a very high risk of getting lost! 

There are a few key things that I look for in touch up products:

  • They must be relatively small or compact to fit into even my smallest handbag. 

  • They must be able to stay sanitary. 

  • They must be easy to use when on the go. 

  • The must be relatively inexpensive in the (very likely) event that the will b...

If you don't know already, I have been a professional makeup artist for just shy of 8 years now. I have worked with major beauty brands like Tarte & Xtreme Lashes, publications like Allure, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, & Vogue, done national campaigns for the Big Ten Network, have worked with organizations like the NFL & Miss USA-- oh, and have done about a million and two weddings. I own BMSHL Beauty, which specializes in makeup for weddings and special events. 

Occasionally, due to scheduling conflicts or costs, I am unable to work with a bride. Not being able t...
