Yes, I do sexy white PLAYBOY models

I get emails often if I know how to do makeup on WHITE GIRLS? Then I get, do you know how to do the PLAYBOY models makeup look? LADIES…I’m a MAKEUP ARTIST and faces are nothing but a canvas to me. I don’t care about race, weight, A-list D-list, I only care about painting your face.

Do you ever ask a painter if the brush strokes is different for a black person vs a white person? Do you ask a shoe designer if they designed the shoe for a Spanish girl or an Asian girl when you buy shoes at the stores? Of course not, so stop calling or emailing me asking me about me doing makeup on your race.

That bothers me so much!!! I think I will do a blog about something that was told to me over the weekend at a shoot dealing with race so check back tomorrow and enjoy the pics below.



*these guys are amazing. i know i did hair & makeup but these guys have great eyes and their work speaks for itself. i will be doing many more shoots with them after the l’oreal tour.
