About Me:
In 2003 I started a makeup company called E'LON Couture Cosmetics. It was quickly picked up by Macy's and carried through their Midwest region. We now have a catalog which has been mailed to more than 25,000 women. We are set to go international with our line in London and Ghana in 2009. I am a model and makeup artist and founded the company to show true beauty for women of color and not the images that are made to be presented to our daughters.

Broken Voices

Posted on August 26, 2009 at 7:52pm 0 Comments

Broken voices can regain a strength and beauty unknown before. What is a broken voice you might ask. It's a woman or a family who live inside the silence of domestic violence and abuse.



I have had the chance to live all over the world and it still hits me hard when I talk to women who live inside the quiet of their own broken voices. I talked to one of my customers today who said she needed some cover stick or camouflage creme. I made a… Continue

The Beauty of Strength

Posted on August 26, 2009 at 7:51pm 0 Comments

Economic indicators, economic bailouts, economic bad news. Everyday we get up now we hear more stories of how bad the economy is and how bad people are suffering - and they are. When I got up yesterday I heard from an old friend. Someone I had not spoken with in at least two years. Back in the day this sister had it going on...House in the suburbs and a summer home on Martha's Vineyard.



She was living the American dream.… Continue

Remembering Courage

Posted on August 26, 2009 at 7:49pm 0 Comments





I remember the first time I went into a meeting with the President/CEO of a major department store chain (Macy's) - where my cosmetics line was soon to be launched.



I sat in my car outside the building with tears streaming down my face, a letter (tattered and yellowed) clutched in my right hand. It was a chilly March day - we had successfully completed two trials for Macy's in February and March and we would soon be going 'live'… Continue

The Souls of Black Girls

Posted on August 26, 2009 at 7:48pm 0 Comments



How long do we let other people define us? How long do we delete the blogs, throw out the newsletter or articles, or change the channel when the message is about us?



How long do we keep trying to conform to the world's standard of beauty...while at the same time damaging our girls that can't fit into that standard and then turning around and criticizing or victimizing them when they act out, are promiscuous or do all kinds of things… Continue

Make Your Life Over - Tell A New Story!

Posted on August 26, 2009 at 7:47pm 0 Comments



When we see women like Coretta Scott King and Michelle Obama what do we really 'hear'. Well for one..we hear their stories. Most often in their own words. But we never hear the drama, the pain, the victim (and believe me both of these ladies had/have enough to bemoan). Coretta lost her husband and was left as a single mother. Michelle has to hear stories and worries about her husband as the first African American President.



But how do… Continue
