a little bit of bronzer never hurt anyone

Hi Friends!
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

Before I left for LA – I teamed up with my bff dru for some photoshoot sessions. I wanted to do ‘before’ and ‘after’ pics for my new makeup website that is in the works. I had 7 friends that graciously volunteered to be my models. Thanks girls! Here are 3 of the girls – stay tuned for the next 4.
