The Stunning Bride

Working with bride’s like Adebola… truly makes my life complete. I know it sounds crazy or maybe corny, but it is because of brides like her that I am able to do what I love. It was a pleasure working with her as her calm personality set the mood for the serene atmosphere. She and her bridal party were soo much fun to work with. They all had great personalities and were super accomplished. Also, a big shout out and many thanks to Tope as she was the perfect makeup assistant on this day. Now on to the pictures…below are some images we captured as the bridal party got ready:

A Before and After of the Stunning Bride

As always, I would like to mention the Lavish Salon for doing an amazing job with the bride’s thick beautiful natural hair. The wedding took place at the Duke Chapel and their fabulous reception took place at the uber cool wedding location, The Cotton Room.

The fabulous story-telling images below were captured by the super talented Photographer Jameka Autry of Paper Hearts Weddings (you can click on the images for a more detailed look):

A Glam Wedding in London

Late last year my love, Mobyz, got married in London and I had the pleasure of being her makeup artist. She wanted a natural glam look and I think we achieved just that. Check out some of the images from her super fun wedding. I wish I could relive this trip…but oh well, memories are also priceless 🙂

I pray for marriage blessings for she and Charles. And here is to wishing them many, many, many wonderful years of love and happiness together!

Below are some great images from Litehouse Photography

Where Music and Beauty Meet…

New York fashion week begins tomorrow…ohh how I wish I could have made it this year.

In celebration of this year’s Fashion’s Night Out (which takes place on the first day of fashion week), Rapper, Azealia Banks collaborated with M∙A∙C on a limited edition lipstick called Yung Rapunxel. For those of us who are not in New York City, it is available online today, Sept 5th. Something about this deep blackened purple lipstick reminds me of Cyber lipstick (with a hint of Rebel lipstick, which I love)…so you know I had to place my order promptly. When the lipstick comes in, I will see if I was right about the comparison.

Check out her new music video, 1991, where she rocks the Yung Rapunxel lipstick:

L.I.F.T = Look I’m Feeling Today!!

Serena Williams is one of my favorite athletes. Her intensity for her sport gives me life. Working hard is what she does, no excuses. As soon as I saw these images of her, as she headed to The Late Show With David Letterman, I knew I had to share them with you guys. She looked amazing in this red dress. Again, her stylists and makeup artist hit it out of the park!!!

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.

LIFT: Beyonce Post-Baby 2012

L.I.F.T = Look I’m Feeling Today!!

She just interrupted my regularly scheduled programming.

Beyonce looks amazing! In fact, in makes no sense that she looks this fabulous 30 days after giving birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.  She motivates me to get on my grind again.

Her whole look is on fire…from her hair, to her minimalist makeup, to her shoe game.
