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.

Fun with blue :).

Another FHM shoot, this time with model Pamela Noble. Photo by Michael Vincent.

Candy colors :D!

My sweet new friend, model Autumn Brockman (<3 you doll!); this was for a Skinnie Magazine shoot with photographer Michael Vincent.

I’ll post the magazine pictures as soon as I get them! What have you all been up to?

Inglot Mini Haul and Swatches

Hi Babes,
Happy Monday! I’m so excited that this is a short work week, looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner at bffs house and sleeping in all 4 days of my weekend. I’m heading out to LA/Hollywood this weekend to pick up some things for my makeup kit as well, so I’m excited to share those with you :).
I was in Vegas for Halloween weekend with my girlfriends, and while walking around the forum shops, I found the Inglot store. After a quick happy dance and some excited squeals, I headed in and picked out some shadows in colors that I didn’t already have in my kit.

-Pearl 423- a shimmery deep brown with copper and purple tones depending on where the light hits.
-AMC Shine 09- a gold with a slightly peach/pink shimmer to it.
-Double Shimmer 504- beautiful teal/aquamarine blue. LOVE this one so much.
-Double Shimmer 483- a deep shimmery navy blue.
-Double Shimmer 481- my favorite of the bunch, this is a khaki green that I haven’t seen anywhere else. Creates a beautiful subtle smokey eye.

I’m officially Inglot crazy and cant wait to pick more up at the store in Newport Beach soon. The colors are intensely pigmented, blend like a dream, and last all day long. I picked up the pans for their Freedom System and they came out to $5 each :)–seriously, how could you say no?! I’d recommend these to the newbies and the serious makeup artist looking to build up an amazing shadow collection. Click here to visit their website.

Have you tried Inglot before?
