Myka's Fave New Beauty Finds

Fall is my favorite time of year. The crispness in the air, the changing leaves (yes, even here in LA!) and the darkening evenings ushering me to bed by 9.

Her and her sister Sheridan were some of my first clients when I moved to LA. When they had babies I held them while their color processed. I even stood next to Mekenna...
