Tailored Living + Meredith Ehler = Your Dream Closet! | Meredith Ehler | Closet Organizer | Sterling, Virginia

 

tailored living closet wall

Every woman dreams about the perfect closet!  One where you feel like you are shopping in your favorite boutique yet everything is free and in your size!  As a closet-organizer, I know the impact that a well designed and well organized closet has on a client’s life.  Each day just starts out better, as you are able to choose and accessorize the perfect outfit in a well-lit and glamorous space.  When I organize closets for my clients we can make huge improvements by just editing and re-organizing the contents.  But sometimes a closet needs more TLC thank I can give it.  Sometimes a closet needs to be re-modeled.

I recently met a wonderful woman, Martha Dahlman, and a local business event.  When she told me where she worked I said that I had to come and visit her at work. She took me on a tour of the Tailored Living showroom. As a closet organizer I was like a kid in a candy store!  As a woman I was like a kid in a candy store!  I didn’t want to leave.  I would have been happy just curling up near the granite-covered closet island with the build in ironing board and staying there for hours.

The first thing that caught my eye was the array of finishes and moldings available to customize your dream closet.  The second thing that caught my eye were the lighted clothing racks.  I am dying for them! Have you ever been in your own closet trying searching for a particular black sweater in a sea of black sweaters?  No more struggling to find anything when you have racks with lighting in them.  When you turn them on, they softly light the tops of all of your clothing hung on the hangers.  Then the lights automatically turn off for you.  Dreamy!

Tailored Living offers a myriad of designs, finishes and services for almost every room in your house.  I even got an eye-full of the possible makeovers for my garage and kitchen.  I was inspired for sure!  I recently had a home-decor client of mine ask if I knew of anyone that designs custom Hide-a-beds, or Murphy bed.  Well, I do now. Yes, Tailored Living can do that too.

Clearly I was in heaven.  But don’t take my word for it.  Learn more at Tailored Living on Facebook, Tailored Living on-line, or stop in for a visit.  If you are in the DC area they are conveniently located near the Reston Town Center. Tell them Meredith sent you!  And if you decide to upgrade your closet you may just get my organizing services thrown in for free!  Ask Martha for details.

See you in your new closet!

My Favorite Makeup Finds| Meredith Ehler | Makeup Artist | Washington, D.C.

Cleaning my brushes.

I love to shop sales!  Stores like TJ MAXX and Marshalls are my favorite places to shop for clothes.  For makeup, finding a sale was a bit more difficult.  I always felt like the only places to buy makeup were the counters at the department stores or at Target and Walmart.  All of those places are great but my favorite place to get a makeup bargain is ELF:  EyesLipsFace.com.  I signed up for their emails and I am always alerted to their latest sale.  I also have searched online for coupon codes to use when I checkout.  They now carry ELF products at Target as well.

I love ELF’s mascaras and glosses.  I also love their translucent powder compact.  They carry a wide variety of brushes too.  My favorites are the ones that you can see in the above picture with orange tips and white handles.  The Essential Eyeliner Brush and the Essential Foundation Brush, and the Essential Concealer Brush.    Can you believe that they are only $1!  I use the eyeliner brush to fill in my eye brows with brown shadow as well as to line my eyes with dark shadow.  I sometimes line my eyes with a pencil then I use this brush to dab into dark shadow and pat the brush down along the pencil line.  That sets my eyeliner and it lasts all day.  It also makes the line look thicker and more professional then if I just left it as plain pencil.

The concealer brush is very tiny which makes it the perfect brush to dot concealer onto a blemish.  Covering blemishes can be tough.  I suggest using the brush to put a small amount of concealer onto the blemish.  Let it air dry for about 20 seconds and then use the brush to gently blend in the edges of the concealer so that it disappears into the skin.

Be smart with your money!  Have fun.  Look for a sale or pick out a product at Target.  See if they are a good fit for your face and your wallet.  - Meredith

 

 

 

Eye Primer is a MUST! | Meredith Ehler | Makekup Artist | Northern Virginia

Last week I was chatting with a friend and I found myself distracted by her eye makeup because it was creasing and seemed to be sliding off of her eyelids and it was only 10 am!

Rebecca and Me.

I introduced her to eye primers.  An eye primer is a must for every woman wearing makeup.   A primer coats the eyelid in a foundation-like product that locks-in any shadow or liner put on top of it.  I highly recommend MAC’s Prep and Prime Eye or the MAC Paint Pots.  MAC calls the Prep and Prime Eye “an undercoat to eye makeup”.

I use a primer daily and so do many of my clients because once you use it you can’t imagine life without it.  Use it under any makeup you wear to ensure it stays in place for hours.   The product sticks and stays in place whether you want a light coating of shadow or an intense pop of pigment.  -Meredith
