LIFT: Beyonce at the 2011 VMA’s

L.I.F.T = Look I’m Feeling Today!!

There is no point talking about how great Chris Brown’s performance was or how passionately Adele sang at the show last night, because Beyonce stole the show. In retrospect, her baby glow was evident throughout her performance of  “Love on top”. Congrats to her and Jay-Z!!!

I love her makeup, especially the subtle coral lips which complimented her dress perfectly.

Where Music and Beauty Meet….

One of the things I love most about being a Makeup Artist is the opportunity to meet and work with different people, with different stories and personalities. Christal Reynolds is a contemporary gospel vocalist, I have had the pleasure of working with on different photoshoots. She has such a calming soul, a beautiful personality and her musicality is innate. I always have fun working with Christal and I can’t wait to do it again soon. Check out Christal Reynolds’ website, HERE.

Vintage Photoshoot: BTS

I took a few behind the scenes pictures at a photoshoot this past weekend. The shoot was for the  online vintage boutique called Bite This Style. I enjoyed working with my sisters and the models, Justice and Morgan. The website will be up in September and I will share more about the site then. I love unique vintage pieces, so I am excited to see the selection on the site.

My ICONIC Series: Bettie Page

For the past few years, I have been working on a series called Recreating Icons…My Iconic Series. In the series, I recreate makeup looks of iconic women who have left a lasting impression on me over the years. Bettie Page was one of these women. Her sense of style was timeless. If not for her trademark bangs and her striking blue eyes, she also made it on my list for her daring ways and for the role she played in immortalizing the traditional pin-up look.  I posted these images on the facebook fan page last year, but for some reason I never posted in on the blog. So, meet Carsa as Bettie Page.
