As part of the MomsFashionFile Style Suite (where we styled 12 lucky moms at the 2011 BlogHer conference), we were fortunate enough to rely on

With a resume that includes many A-list celebrities and President Obama, this lady knows how to work a makeup brush. Tia works with Johnson'??s as a makeup artist and we were able to grab a few minutes of her time at the Hard Rock style suite to talk beauty trends. She worked her magic (natural, think you on your very best day)--on more than a dozen women and was such a pro--upbeat, fun and the type of girl you'd want as a secret weapon for a photo shoot. Here's the scoop on the tools an tricks of her profession.
