We all started wearing makeup because we wanted to look and feel better about our appearance, whether it was creating a professional look for the office or creating a sultrier look for going out. However, something happened to us during this quest. We got trapped into wanting to look like the hottest celebrities, or wanting to keep up with the latest trends, and we lost sight of loving our own features.

Here is the problem: If you don’t learn how to properly accentuate your unique features, you will never overcome the “method” behind the “madness” of makeup. You will be left with a beauty drawer that overflows with one-hit wonders and color mishaps.

Now, don’t expect tips on how to turn a plain Jane into an over the top diva {that ain’t what I do}, and when we meet don’t expect me to walk around with a “beat” face to prove my makeup skills {ain’t gonna happen}. However, you can expect some sassy “Oh no she didn’t” truth along the way. So, if you’re ultra-sensitive or a stick in the mud, you probably won’t appreciate my real take on makeup.

With that said, I look forward to sharing with you, darling!

Just to name a few.

If you spend more than 15-minutes doing your makeup then you’re doin’ too much!”

Sneak Peek




I wrote The Beauty Diary because, as a professional makeup artist, I saw firsthand how women were struggling to sort through all the mumbo-jumbo to get down to the nitty-gritty and actually learn practical tips.

I feel that you shouldn’t have to read page after page to learn just a tip or two. I wanted you to get great advice and to reference it quickly.

The Beauty Diary presents beauty articles {not chapters} to highlight information that every woman should know relating to her makeup routine.




Frequently Asked Questions

While writing this book, I found that the following questions kept coming up…

Who is this book for?
The name says it all! But, to be more specific, this book is for women who are just starting a makeup routine AND for women who have a makeup routine but are not confident with their current approach, and who want to step up their game just a bit. This book is NOT for the diva who insists that she looks better wearing over-the-top makeup.
Is there anything in this book that I don't already know or could find on the Internet?
Let’s keep it real, you can find just about anything on the Internet, which is part of the problem. You’ll probably find yourself watching and reading several videos and articles before you find one that sounds right, and this doesn’t mean that it’s true or from a reliable source. This book is a compilation of proven tips I’ve used for years as a pro artist.
Is it worth my time and investment?
As a Boss Lady, I know that time is money. How valuable is your time? This book will easily save you hours of time and effort searching for and learning about how to enhance your look. Some Bosses spend more in a week on coffee.
How long will it take to enhance my look?
I think this is a loaded question and my reply is always the same: “It depends on who’s asking.” With most of the tips I share, you can start applying them right away, but there are some that will take more time, as they will require you to actually go to the store. Just go at your own pace and master one technique at a time.
Are the tips practical, or are they over-the-top techniques that will take me weeks to master?
Your life is not a photoshoot. If you spend more than 15 minutes doing your makeup (unless it’s a very special occasion), you’re “doing too much.” You don’t need to be creative or own an arsenal of makeup to look good. The point of this book is to get you looking your best in less time.

About Bailey


As a professional makeup artist for nearly two decades, this Washington, D.C. native began her fairytale with an incredible start.

Bailey made her debut in 1997 working on a print campaign for Adidas. The same year, she expanded her skills into television. Before you can say, “action,” viewers across the country were seeing her work compliments of BET. Since then, Bailey has provided makeup services for other major entertainment companies, including GOD TV, Discovery Channel, Nickelodeon and Radio One.

After doing makeup for a Nestle Corporation photo shoot, for which she had the pleasure of doing makeup for BET’s CEO Debra Lee, Bailey became Lee’s personal makeup artist and fulfilled the company’s other corporate makeup service needs. Bailey was later asked to join the launch team as the style producer for BET’s new subsidiary, There, Bailey provided viewers with numerous beauty and fashion articles and covered world-renowned events like New York’s Fashion Week.

Bailey brings to her craft a noticeable creative flair. Perhaps it stems from the fact that she graduated at 20, with honors, from Howard University with a background in the arts. Or maybe it’s her “gotta have it” personality.

She has written as a beauty column for AOL’s Black Voices, and has been featured as a beauty expert on news shows and in news publications such as the New York Daily News, Bustle and Daily Worth. Bailey’s accomplishments certainly indicate that this latest venture will not be her last.

Says Bailey: “Give me a brush, I’ll enhance your beauty. Show me an overly made-up woman, I’ll yell cut. Want a new look, I’ll yell, make-up!”

And that’s a wrap!
