I’m back and I promise I’m trying my hardest to post and stuff but life gets in the way and I’m not all about blowing up Social media with my makeup of the day’s daily lol. But with changing my job during the week and rarely wearing makeup, I look forward to wearing a full face on the weekend when I work at bare minerals. I’m still freelancing as well out side from both jobs but it gets so hectic and I always put aside updating my portfolio cause I’m just being lazy (let’s be honest lol). I’ve been asked/messaged about products and things so I’ll try my hardest to actually post cause it’s usually all repetitive things.
Beautiful stylized winter wedding shoot I did with the one and only Kim from KimLynPhotography and event coordinator Jill. Our down to earth, very brave, and warm couple Jessica and Mike. They really are troopers for this shoot, it was cold!
I had a chance to do Jessica’s hair and makeup. She was the cutest! I loved working with her. I admired her hair the whole time I was doing it, she had the prettiest burgundy wine highlights. And her eyes when she was outside, gorg!!!!
Hair: Conical curling wand,Natural Braid and Side bun.
Makeup: Urban Decay B6 Prep Spray, Makeup Forever HD Foundation, Sonia Kashuk concealer, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Setting Powder, Benefit Hoola Bronzer, NYC Bronzer, Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush, BH Cosmetics Blush, Hard Candy Tiki Bronzer as highlight, Naked 2, L’oreal pressed pigments, BH Cosmetics Day &Night palette, NYX Natural Lip Liner, NYX Snow White Round Lipstick
Kim and Jill. Love this picture! This shoot was full of laughs and jokes with these girls.
Slowly but surely. I’m still trying to get comfortable with putting myself out there like ‘marketing’, ‘promoting’, or more like showing my work. I’m not one to be like “Hey look what I did and maybe let me do your makeup”. But I’m trying, promise!!! So started a Facebook Page because I know a lot of people get exposure on there. So please go like and share my page. Thank You!

Sorry for being MIA ! Through Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and even my Baby Girl’s 4th birthday . But I’m coming back .
Current obsession while I was gone; Anastasia of Beverly Hills Lavish Palette and my new lens for my Sony NEX-5n .
I’ve been loving the lavish palette since I bought it back in November. This is my first eyeshadow palette from Anastasia, I always opted to her eyebrow pencils, gels, and tweezers (amazing stuff i tell you) but this palette is so gorgeous! And a great value, it came with a double ended brush, full size tweezers (which alone is $20), full size eyeliner, and sample size of the perfect brow pencil and ofcourse the gorg palette and for only $40. Unfortunately it was limited edition for the holidays but if you can get your hands on it – get it!!! The colors are amazing and so easy to blend out.
Next loving item of the moment is my new lens! I have a Sony NEX-5N, I’m no where close to knowing what I’m doing with my camera but i know the basics and excited to learn. I’ve had it for a year now and haven’t seem to find time to learn much. But my boyfriend surprised me with a 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens for Christmas! I bought this camera because it was portable with both easy point and shoot settings along with options of DSLR cameras have. I always used the macro setting cause I love capturing details and close up of what I love the most. The macro setting was sub-par and didn’t really do much for me so now that I have this lens I AM IN LOVE!
