LIFT: 2012 BET Awards

L.I.F.T = Look I’m Feeling Today!!

Hey Guys!!!

I had to drop off my thoughts about the 2012 BET Awards. Ironically, the same things I liked about the BET award show last year are the same things I enjoyed about the show this past Sunday. I loved “The Real Husbands of Hollywood” skit. I am so glad they are making it into a full fledged show. Sign me up…I know it will be hilarious. And, wow…the Whitney Houston tribute was soo touching.

Two years in a row, my favorite artists were the winners of the Best International Act (Africa) category. Congrats to Wizkid! Check out two of my favorite songs of the moment by Wizkid.

For the past few years, Monica’s style has been right up my alley. She looked amazing on the red carpet. That structured blazer and the sequined pants were everything! Sexy but classy all at the same time and of course her makeup and hair was on point as usual.

I wanted to share some images from a photoshoot I had the pleasure of being part of this past weekend. The photographer, Kimberly of  Kimberly Joy Photography is talented at what she does. I love the images she captured and I am excited about us working together in the future.

On beautiful Jasmine’s eyes, I used the new eyeshadow palette from the MAC Reel Sexy Collection called Dynamic Duo 4. I love the matte, yet highly pigmented texture of the eyeshadows in this particular palette. On her lips, I used Up The Amp lipstick by MAC.

What are your favorite eyeshadow and lip colors this spring?

I love me some Brandy and Monica, so whenever they have a project together, I am more than happy to “hear” from them.  The image and the video below says it all. They both looked amazing and their makeup application was perfectly executed. Big ups to their Makeup Artists! They are not going anywhere, anytime soon. Keep it up girls!!!
