Michele Papenheim Out of SalonThis year is a mile­stone year for a loved one and I am head­ing out on vaca­tion to celebrate!

I will be out of the salon Sun­day, March 23 through Tues­day, April 1. Cole Street Salon is still open, but I will not be in.  If you are on a sched­ule for your eye­brows and/or eye­lashes (and even for when you need makeup replen­ished), check your cal­en­dar now and adjust your appoint­ment sched­ul­ing accord­ingly, please!

I will be tak­ing orders for makeup late this month and the very first week of March so that things are in prior to the 21st, which will be your last day to pick up makeup before April 2.  Sat­ur­day the 22nd looks to be a super busy day, so please try to plan around it so that I can pro­vide the best pos­si­ble ser­vice for you.

As you know, I am part of an amaz­ing salon, but when it comes to what I do, it is just me.  I know that this can be frus­trat­ing when you need some­thing, which is why I make every pos­si­ble effort here, on Face­book, on Twit­ter, and via email to let you know when things are hap­pen­ing so that you can plan for them in advance.

So, if you need makeup, call me and let’s get it ordered!  If you have some­thing ordered and it is in, come get it! If you need some­thing on the fly, stop by Wednes­day — Sat­ur­day to pick it up (call first to be sure I am in and not out at an onsite appoint­ment)!  If you need a trial, a les­son, or your lashes or eye­brows done, get in before I leave!

Call now to sched­ule your appoint­ment around these dates: 248.645.2653


Here are some Spring 2014 Makeup trends to look for­ward to (and to begin incor­po­rat­ing now)!

Spring 2014 Party Girl Look

  • Watch for bolder, sex­ier colors.
  • Healthy, glow­ing skin (is that ever out of style?)
  • Berry col­ored hues (pretty on almost everyone!)
  • Orange lips (yes, orange.  Watch your skin tone here, though)
  • Blue eye shad­ows (we saw this last spring and now the col­ors are even more bold)
  • Green eye shad­ows (again, from 2013, but brighter and more profound)
  • Cat eyes (yep! get out your black liq­uid liner)
  • White eye shad­ows with dark liner (an ethe­real look)
  • Gilded, shim­mer­ing metal­lic eyelids

These bolder looks (orange lips, and blue eye shad­ows) can be hard for some new makeup users to mas­ter with­out look­ing gar­ish and Tami Faye-Baker-esque.  If you have a tween or young teen in your life that has been exper­i­ment­ing with makeup, I want to rec­om­mend one of my makeup lessons (I can help her use these new Spring col­ors in a way that allows her nat­ural beauty to shine through).

And, if you want to get her off on the right foot of using healthy make up and not dime-store garbage filled with bad-for-her-chemicals… talk to me about order­ing one of jane iredale’s NEW Starter Kits. This kit intro­duces you to the foun­da­tion of the healthy jane iredale makeup line.



Dis­cover the dif­fer­ence with these jane iredaleessen­tials for amaz­ing skin, bun­dled in a chic travel-size cos­metic case with extra-large mirror.

  • Healthy, radi­ant skin is eas­ier than you think! Reveal yours with these sim­ple steps.
  • Smooth Affair is a luminiz­ing primer thatnour­ishes and pre­pares your skin: itbright­ens and mois­tur­izes while makeup goes on more eas­ily and lasts longer.
  • Multi-tasking Amaz­ing Base and Pure­Pressed Base, which have earned The Skin Can­cer Foundation’s Seal of Rec­om­men­da­tion, each pro­vide four impor­tant func­tions in one: foun­da­tion, con­cealer, sun­screen and active skin care ben­e­fits.
  • POMMISST hydrates, con­di­tions and pro­tects your skin. Use it to set your base and plump the skin.
  • Avail­able in five shades: Light (Warm Silk), Medium Light (Warm Sienna), Medium (Golden Glow), Medium Dark (Latte), Dark (But­ter­nut) to suit a wide range of skin tones.
