Another Makeover story…

Elle is a model I worked with at a photoshoot recently. Time flew by working with the whole team at the shoot…fab photographer, fab wardrobe stylist, and fab hair stylist…what more can one ask for. More about the shoot later.

To continue my story, Elle was a delight to work with and it didn’t hurt that I fell in love with her eyes. YESSS….I didddd! The shape of her eyes are a dream to work with.  So, when she contacted me to do the makeup for her and her girls…I was game. My makeup artist friend, Nnebuchi, came along to help beat some faces . We met up with them before they headed out to celebrate on New Years Eve. We had a blast!

I usually won’t say this out loud, but here goes: I really think more women should have their makeup done professionally, JUST BECAUSE! I am not saying this because I am a Makeup Artist…I promise. I just think having your makeup done professional from time to time (especially on special occasions) is a good investment. Just like manicures and pedicures, you can do it yourself, but it’s always nice to get it done professionally. One, it’s done a millions times better, plus it’s a nice way to relax and get pampered before a night out.

Below are some pictures of the looks I did on New Year Eve.
