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:

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?

Where Music and Beauty Meet…

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!!!

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.
