Chic Feet: Pedi Couture Sandals at SCS!

Ladies if you are like me, I'm ready to ditch my boots, and slide in some sandals! But, with those sandals, there are the pedicures that are a must. But if you are like me, I absolutely despise those paper sandals that never stay on, or always fold under. It's a task just to keep them on, let alone walk. So save yourself the trouble, and get some Pedi Couture Sandals!

That's right, these super comfy sandals are made just for that special pedicure that will save you the hassle of fumbling with those paper slides. They come in array of colors and styles, and can be slipped on right before you get polished. Save yourself nasty smudges, and slip your feet into some of these.

Are You Ready for VDay! February 7th, 2009

I will be proudly participating in VDAY!! This Saturday....

VDAY!- Love doesn't hurt. Visit for more details and tickets.
Vagina Monologues , DC: February 7, 2009

V-Day is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is also a day on or around Valentines Day in February for which annual theatrical and artistic events are produced around the world to raise money and transform consciousness. The money that passes through V-Day and that is raised on its behalf comes from individuals, corporations, foundations, product and book sales and benefit and commercial performances of “The Vagina Monologues" and is directly donated to grassroots, national and international organizations and programs. V-Day came to life in 1998 as an outgrowth of Eve Ensler’s Obie Award winning play “The Vagina Monologues”.

Anyone who has seen “The Vagina Monologues” knows the play has the power to galvanize and inspire a powerful sense of self and activism. As Eve performed the piece in small towns and large cities all around the world (and eventually with celebrity friends) she saw and heard first hand the destructive personal, social, political and economic consequences violence against women has for many nations. In its first year of incorporation (2001), V-Day was named one of Worth Magazine's "100 Best Charities." In ten years, the V-Day movement has raised over 60 million.

Every celebrity/actress that participates in V-Day productions are donating their time in the name of ending violence against women and girls.GET YOUR TICKET TODAY!!

Beauty Before & After...

I've been gone way too long! When I thought things wouldn't get busier it did... Between photoshoots, consultations, and events, time just flew past me. I have to admit I'm still catching up from the inauguration. :/

Nevertheless, because of some recent request of before and afters, I wanted to share one I did for the BET Honors a few weeks ago.

I can't say how much I enjoyed doing her face, because as a makeup artist we love the perfect symmetry of a face. Especially for contouring, and highlighting.

For her face I used alot of some of my newest addictions I have shared with you before... like My MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powders.. I used 4 different kinds on her to highlight in the areas I wanted to stand out, and the darker powders for the contouring, and a color close to her complexion, buffed in to perfection to give her a healthy glow.Add Image

For her eyes, I kept it neutral, and added 2 sets of Ardell Lashes. I used a pair of full lashes that was close to the length of her natural lashes, and then I used a pair of flaired side lashes to elongate her eyes...
To highlight her eyes and brow bone, I used YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Highlighter, my new fav.

Even though it took me like an hour to do her face, it was so well worth it!
