Now that makeup has been airbrushed on with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics the model is waiting for hair. As she’s wait patiently for hair I’m cleaning my tools so I can be ready for makeup look 2. The first look is all about the bright yummy pink lips from OCC. It’s a new lip tar call Yaoi, an obnoxious true fuchsia metallic shade. On her eyes, I sprayed her with OCC loose colour pigment in Clove, a champagne shimmer. The model was channeling the iconic and fabulous music artist Jody Watley from the 80’s with her beautiful head of natural hair. So I gave the model a very strong dark brows that Jody use to rock back in the days.  I was out of my favorite Urban Decay lashes in Black Velvet so I used the Baby Doll strip lashes on her. The rest of her face is all about strong highlighting & contouring. Once hair is done, I’ll probably tweak her makeup a little more. For now it’s all about GLAMXURIOUS!!!!

Fun Sultry Photo Shoot in Soho

I had the pleasure of working with Jade of Jades today, a talented and gorgeous young woman who sings & act. She has done Broadway shows and sing background with music artist Solange Knowles. Jade is working on new pictures and asked if I could help her out. Nyla, the hairstylist did a great job with Jade’s hair, luv the fishtail.
Jade had a few different looks that she wanted me to create but because I was having a vertigo attack all day I couldn’t be as creative as I would have normally. But with a pretty canvas to work on I could have painted her with my eyes close. 
My makeup of choice on this shoot was: Inglot, Stila, OCC, and L’OREAL Paris.
