Corporate America.

It has been so long since I have really used my computer for leisure. Working at a law firm these last few years has definitely distracted me from my passion and love of make up but I am still doing weddings and shoots here and there which I always look forward to.

Favorite brands still include: Make Up Forever, Make Up Geek, NYX, and Too Faced. Most notably the Selfie face pallet by Too Faced, it is my current favorite product in my kit.

I am looking forward to heading up to LA and purchasing new items to restock where I am lacking.

I have definitely been out of the game for awhile but have recently made the time to explore the current make up gurus out there and I am blown away by the current trends and talent out there in this industry.







Pre gamers.

I’m not sure what terrifies me more…..liquid eyeliner or red lipstick.  One wrong squench of the face can cause some serious damage.

On a more positive note: I think the consultation is my favorite part of participating in wedding fun. There’s less stress and you really get to play around until you find the perfect look. The best part is you learn where your client’s dos and donts when it comes to approaching their face with foreign objects.

Products used include Make Up Forever, MAC, INGLOT, Make Up Geek, OCC, Dinair, Urban Decay and Lime Crime.

Wedding things.

This has definitely become the year of weddings. So many life events have been happening and I should probably keep up on blogging but distractions are prominent.

I am super excited to announce that my dear friend and beautiful model has officially tied the knot with her long time boyfriend and I had the privilege of doing her make up, her momma’s, and the mother of the groom for their big day!

Here are a couple snapshots. I cannot wait to get the physical photos to add to my portfolio.

May you live happily ever after…

Cousinly love.

Looks who’s been lagging on the posts. Life’s been a little crazy these last few months. But I’m happy to announce I’ve lost 60 pounds(since August 2013)! Between Crossfit and Keto, I’ve turned my life around. However, I need to start focusing on my first love, make up.

Spent last weekend playing beauty shop with my cousin to get back in the swing of things. Dolled her up and did a little photo shoot. Two birds one stone.

Here’s a sneak peek.
