Hello Beautiful Readers!
It’s been a while since I updated this page, but the past few months have been blessedly crazy and busy! I started a new job, moved out with my best friend, and I’ve been working so much! Doing makeup and hair are my #1 goal right now, so I am staying focused and giving it my all. Because I don’t have a whole lot of time to blog right now, I’ve been trying to update my Facebook page pretty often with pictures of my work. Please check it out and comment, I’d love to reconnect with all of you!

I hope all of you are doing well, I’m sending you all a big e-hug and hope to hear from you soon!

Where Have I Been?

Happy Monday!
I cant believe I’ve been away for so long! I’ve been crazy busy, in the best way possible. I’m so thankful that I’ve been getting makeup work all over the place, and I’m actually waiting for three magazine spreads to hit the stands so I can show you my published work. I feel so very blessed and cant wait for even more work an opportunities to come up. I still have to fight back tears of happiness when I think about all of the amazing things I’ve been able to do and all the makeup jobs I have to look forward to! Here are a few snapshots of recent work:

The music video I worked on in January is up! Check it out :):

Model Nicole Cox. This shoot was for FHM international with photographer Michael Vincent.

My First Music Video Makeup Job!

Oh my gosh, dolls, I am so sorry for neglecting this blog. It’s been a crazy busy month for me and I haven’t had time to breathe! I got to do makeup for a music video a few weeks ago and had to share! Our day started at 7 am and the shoot wrapped around 9 pm; it was absolutely exhausting, but I loved every minute of it. I was too busy to take great pictures, but here are some shots from the set:

Photobucket The eye makeup I did for one of the dancers, it was fantasy inspired as well. I didn’t get a shot of her whole face when it was done, we were hurrying them out of makeup.

PhotobucketMakeup madness!

I’ll post the music video and information once it’s released so you can all take a look :). How have you all been?
