Last night I went to a shoot in the Bronx With It was in a basement and was all very dark and mysterious. The theme of the shoot was goth sexy! I wasnt sure how the shoot would be. One of the models didnt turn up but the other model was Sarah Hartshorne from ANTM!! which was great! She is a really sweet girl and we had a great time together.

The make up was fierce!! Black and Red which was a lot of fun to do. I helped accessorize sarah and we had a lot of fun working together!!

Pics coming soon!!!

media.nlPhoto shoots often start at the crack of dawn when even models and celebs don’t look their best and dark circles loom but those dark circles are now a thing of the past! With this lightweight brightener, you’ll be camera ready in no time! It works to make you look your best so you’ll be prepared for any photo opportunity that pops up! That’s why we created this innovative under eye brightener that immediately wakens and brightens skin while adding moisture to prepare for concealer application. Contains lots of skin-boosting ingredients too, like vitamin E, red wine extract, peptides and marine collagen, to help disguise and repair fine lines and wrinkles. PHOTO OP can be used on any area of the face to highlight and add radiance. Winner of Self Magazine Healthy Beauty Award for Best Highlighter.

I tried it out in sephora and I love it!! It really makes your eyes pop and look great!! Bought it this morning for my future shoots! It comes in one color and work for all skin types!


_POC2155 resizedHad a great shoot in Manhattan on Friday. The girl i did makeup on was really pretty and had great great skin. We shot at the top of a building and the views were amazing if a little terrifying, I’m afraid of heights. We shot on this teeny tiny porch on the 20th floor! oh man i was wetting myself!! lol

I used the HD makeup foundation by MUFE on her face and I love it!! It is a great foundation and has great results, great coverage.

Wow what a week this one has been! Been on set all week shooting!
Crazy crazy stuff but it has been great meeting all these new people and giving my card out (hoping).

Its amazing to use my airbrush system and see the results. They are absolutely amazing. Its like using photoshop but not on the computer. All the retouching people will be out of jobs soon. It literally erases all imperfections and comes out great on the camera! The Airbrushing foundation that I have been using is by OCC and everyone loves loves how it feels when it is being applied. They say it’s a cool spray that feels really good and very pampering. Every time i told my models that I was going to Airbrush them their faces glowed from excitement. They all loved it and looked amazing. It is quick and easy way of applying makeup and I love doing it.

The Make Up For Ever HD finishing powder is the most amazing Product! It goes on clear even when you keep re-applying all day, which i have been doing all week. So far it has worked up to what i expected and more. Everyone that i used it on loved it, the texture, the way it felt once applied, and how it looked (or didn’t look)

Next month one of my shoots that i did in June will be in 3 magazines! Oh how exciting? I went insane when i found out! THREE Magazines! Wow as soon as i know i will let you all know!

Im doing a Fashion show next thursday night and fri morning! for an opening for a store at Times Sq!

So that is all for now.
Wishing all a restful night!!

<3 Mascara <3
This has to be my fave product of them all! It helps open the eye, it defines the lashes and makes them curly an appear longer.

Ways to put it on that make your eyelashes go on for miles and curl!!
first things first you need need need an eyelash curler. Start at the root of your eyelash and press down and hold for 3 seconds, then move a little further up the lash towards the tip and do the same and then once more at the tip and curly eyelashes here you are!! then if you have some fall down from the eyeshadow and your lashes look a bit “dusty” sweep mascara on the top part of your lashes to darken and then go for the usuall sweep on the bottom of the top eyelashes! wait for the first coat to dry and then sweep on a second coat.

Some of the mascaras i have tested.

Dior Backstage – it is a great mascara and does amazing things but it is on the expensive side. So far its my fave mascara wand brush!!

Lancome Hypnose – Also a great thickening and curling mascara i loved it. but again its on the expensive side.

MAC Zoomlash – Good mascara but i wouldnt neccesarily get it again not too expensive.

Maybelline Lash Stilleto – Love that mascara and its a great price. It def does wonders for the length and color of your lashes and the brush is a great brush and the mascara really does leave a patent look o your lashes.

Cover girl eyelights Mascara – Love this one as well, it has a little bit of a sparkle in it that goes with different colored eyes. i use the one for the green eyes and it works really well with the brown eyes that i have. the brush is also a great brush.

Thats it for now but feel free to post some of your fave mascaras and tell us why!!
