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?




Thinking of Spring???

I have a love-hate relationship with Spring. I love the weather, but I hate my allergies. I love experimenting with makeup, but I hate when I feel the need to rub my eyes and almost ruin my eye makeup (I usually catch myself before I do serious damage. Luckily, over the years I have developed some serious “eye-rubbing” self-control, lol).
But since spring is pretty much upon us, I guess I need to start getting mentally prepared and embrace it once again.
TIP of the Week:  For allergy sufferers; experimenting with fun lips colors is a great way to add color to your look without focusing on your eyes. Corals, peachy and orange lips colors are on trend this spring. Below are some of my favorite coral, peachy, orange tone lipsticks and lipglosses.
