Meet Katelyn McCullough, co-founder of Elwynn & Cass, LLC (aka E.C. Stylebar). Born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, she moved to San Diego to attend University of San Diego. After graduating, she decided to stay in San Diego to start her own business alongside her mother to create a beauty concierge service based in Southern California in 2015 called E.C. Stylebar. They match the best artists for the client and/or occasion based on the experience they are looking for. In addition, they love personal touches and unique experiences, so they endeavor to bring that to each event and client they work with.
When I see another woman out and about or at an event, I usually notice three things first:
- Her fashion, because how you dress says a lot about your personality.
- Her hair, because I have a lot of hair and I love seeing what other women do with theirs.
- Her skin because skin is the foundation for makeup.
Fashion and hairstyle you can pretty much change any day of the week, without much hassle, but your skin? Well that’s a bit more temperamental.
You eat some greasy food the night before, and you wake with you a glaring red pimple. Your hormones are out of wack, hello zits, we missed you
said no one ever.
There are so many things that can cause acne, but there are also some simple tips and tricks to give you the best shot of having flawless skin. They’re not perfect, but these tips will help you stave off having ever-present acne and reduce it to random, blue moon occurrences.

Yes, you read that right. Eat some fats, but not the greasy, late night, diner staples kind of fats. Rather, eat lots of omega-3 fatty acids, so think avocados, salmon, flaxseeds, nuts, etc.
These foods are natural and they help give you beautiful skin from the inside out. Starting from the inside will give you a better chance of maintaining clear skin, and not just spot treating.
Do A Cleanse… From Your Makeup
I know, this one might be hard, as there are many women out there who cannot leave the house with some foundation on. I feel you, I really do, but hear me out.
When you take a mini-cleanse from your makeup, you are allowing your skin to breathe and to not get clogged. Plus, these cleanses don’t have to be for weeks, just try a day or two, your skin will thank you, I promise.
Always Take Your Makeup Off At Night
For all the boss babes out there, I understand the struggle, especially after a long day. The last thing you want to do is take of your makeup, because your bed is looking mighty fine and it’s so easy to just fall asleep.
I can attest to this one, as I have fallen trap to not taking off my makeup the night before and low and behold, a pink devil showed up in the morning. So take the 5 minutes to remove your makeup and cleanse your face. 5 minutes is far less time than the week it will take to get rid of the pimple after it shows up.
Extra Tricks For Clear Skin
Part of my job as a beauty concierge is scheduling beauty services for clients, some of which include spa services. These include massages, facials, mani/pedis, spray tanning, etc. These services take a bit more planning, as I work around my client’s schedule to organize these, but they are so worth it.
A facial every couple of months is really good for your skin as it is a deep cleaning and basically gives you a clean slate, no dirt, no grime, just glowing skin.
Massages also do wonders for your skin, as they get the blood flowing and when the blood is flowing, it signals the cells to regenerate. Meaning, glowy, dewy skin as a result!
Getting a massage once a month would be ideal, but let’s be honest, that’s not to doable what with all of our busy schedules. If you can have a massage every few months you will be feeling less stressed and hopefully very zen.
