Sorry it’s been awhile since I last posted – this is my first post in the new year [a little late, I know]. Hoping 2011 brings great things, in your world & mine!
Here’s a simple, yet lively look I did the other day. I put a horrible before pic up – yikes, but you won’t be able to know how well the makeup covered unless I did, right?
1) BEFORE [right after I got out of the shower, I always get red spots]
2) Moisturized with Cerave face lotion, then all over coverage with Pur Minerals in Medium & Tan mixed
3) EYES : MAC “Painterly” paint pot all over lid, Sephora brown duo eyeshadow on lash line, “Maxigrade” black tube mascara from Japan, & Maybelline “Define a Brow” in dark brown to fill in brows
4) CHEEKS : NARS “Sin” blush, E.L.F. bronzed bronzer, & Canmake highlighter
5) LIPS : Sephora lipliner in “Native Nude” w/ MAC lipglass in “Nymphette” on top

Last night I got to be a part of LA Fashion Week – the show took place at Siren Studios in the heart of Hollywood. I worked on 6 girls who modeled for 2 different lines. Below is my take on the makeup looks the designers wanted.
Designer: FALAVIA OTIS
LOOK: thick eyebrows, black smokey eyes, light blush, & nude lips
Designer: APRIL DAVIDSON
LOOK: colored smokey eyes, slight winged liner, light blush, & natural lips
Designer, Via w/her models (I did 3 of the girls’ makeup)
Hairstylist, Diana & Makeup Artist, Jeannie (me!)
The other day I posted some before/after photos that I took of Sarah as I was waiting for the pro photos by Jean-Claude to come in – well here they are! Images from the 3 different looks that I did on her.
Photographer: Jean-Claude, Model: Sarah, and Makeup & Hair: Jeannie (me)
got together and did a photoshoot – these photos are just before/after photos taken by me, the photos taken by Jean-Claude will be posted as soon as I get them. Jean-Claude and I have been talking about getting together to shoot for awhile and we finally had the chance! Sarah drove almost 2 hours to get to us, but Jean-Claude is THAT good – so it’s worth it. =) We shot different looks in his home studio and was ready to head towards the beach for some outside shots, but the weather took a turn and we had to cancel that part. =( Here’s just a teaser of the different looks that we shot…
Look #1 – Makeup: Soft & Natural to bring out all features
Hair: Naturally straight
Look #2 – Makeup: Slightly darker eye, darker lip – up a notch
Hair: Naturally straight w/a lil bit of product to smoothen it out
Look #3 – Makeup: teal eyeliner to bring out her eyes, lighter lip, peach blush
Hair – Soft curls
Last night I got to be a part of a Bollywood meets Hollywood fundraising event. It was a night of fun and craziness – too bad I couldn’t stay for the whole thing. The bf’s parents are in town and we had a birthday dinner for his dad last night – so I had to jet out of the event as soon as I finished. Worked on 6 girls in 3 hours – not bad considering the details!
❤ my job.

Diana and I met on a photoshoot gig with a modeling agency that we both work with (she’s the Hairstylist & I’m the Makeup Artist). We wanted to collaborate for a photoshoot and had so many things planned and in the end, traffic got the best of us. We didn’t give up though, instead we had the fastest photoshoot ever. We were fighting against nature (and the sun) — did 4 looks in 1 hour! We were both running around like crazy women and had people staring at us from all angles. It was fun! =)

My first time being a “real” extra. I’ve been extras in the movies that I did makeup for, but never went on set JUST to be an extra. It was for a commercial for LA Tourism and was shot at Universal Studios. They fed us AND gave us alcohol (which I didn’t drink anyway – I’m allergic, go figure). We had a freaking blast! I wish all extra work could be that easy and fun!

to seize the opportunity, melissa & i decided to have our own little photoshoot. =)
walking off the red carpet, candid shot.
I wanted to do something bold with my makeup for my birthday this year… celebrating my last year in my 20’s… ahhh – I can’t believe it! At least I still have enough guts to paint my face like this and go in public.. =)
Lips: mixed OCC lip tars – Anime, Feathered, & Rx together to create this beautiful purple
Lip tars are the BOMB – I LOVE them! They stay on and look so smooth on and you can play around with the colors. I have about 8 of them, mostly in the primary colors, but with those – I can create all different shades. You can purchase them here for $12.50 each. The tubs are .27 fl oz, but will last forever.
