Mac 217 Brush - Great for applying shadow on the lid

Mac 224 Brush - Great for blending

Mac 239 Brush - great for packing on eyeshadow more heavily

Make Up For Ever 14S Brush - great for applying eyeshadow on the lower lashline

Makeup For Ever Angle Brush - Multi purpose, great for everything!! (liner, eyeshadow, crease)

Happy Brushing!!!

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

This is my absolute favorite eyelash curler (and makeup artists world-wide would agree.)
So what makes this lash curler so special???

First, the hinge provides the perfect amount of pressure to give and maintain the best curl.
Second, the mushroom shape is easy to use and sits comfortably on the eye.
Also, it has a silicone pad that is comfortable and protects the eye.
The size of the frame and the shape of the handles suits all eye shapes.
It retails for about $2o and it comes with a replacement silicone pad.
You can find it at Sephora or online at the Shu Uemura website.

Happy lash curling!!!

Lovely Lauren

I had the pleasure of working with new model Lauren from Next Agency and photographer Maya Washington. She had beautiful blues so I used peaches and copper browns to make them stand out. I perfected her skin and nuded out her lips.

Here are some pics from the shoot:

The Power of a Dress

Check out these pics from a sexy photo shoot I did with an up and coming designer Gaby DB. The pieces showed off the models body and made her look amazing. Photographer is Kalias Images and model is Rosalba Vagge.

The model had gorgeous features so I used lots of color to make them stand out. I used purples and blues becuase there were hints of those colors in each outfit.
