Aaliyah We Need a Resolution Inspired Makeup


Look number 3 from my series!

AND it’s been the most requested too! This is the dark eye/red lip look Aaliyah is rocking in the vid.

This is one of my favorite Aaliyah songs (Rock the Boat being number one) so I was pleased to do this look, and was pleased with how fab it turned out with the products I was working with.

How Stunning was Aaliyah in this video? We really began to see her aging gracefully from teenage star to young lady in this album. *tears*

I really really love how glamorous this look feels. I think her makeup artist was phenomenal. I didn’t know this but according to a viewer of mine her makeup artist also passed away in the plane crash that took Aaliyah’s life.  Today we celebrate their life, recognize their talent and may they continue to inspire for generations to come.

I hope you guys enjoyed <3

Breakup Makeup (Breakover)

Breaking up is HARD. As a matter of fact I’ve been in la-la land for so long with my (now exboyfriend)I almost forgot what they felt like.

Until recently, I came back to Los Angeles last week for emergency leave. And the day before I was due to fly back to Kuwait I had the awfullest thing brought to my attention via a friend……..the boyfriend got caught, red handed. In the worst way possible. It’s a very messy situation that I care not to even discuss anymore. Let’s just say it’s on some Usher Confessions Part II type of deal…

I don’t understand how we as human beings don’t give each other the bare minimum line of respect to one another anymore. I don’t know what’s going to happen in this situation and it’s not my place to wonder anymore.

What I DO know is that I am quite possibly in one of the best places in my life right now, mentally, physically and spiritually. And obviously I’ve been through a breakup before. I have every intention of getting over this one the same way I’ve done in the past. With God on my side anything is possible! I refuse to go out like that!

And guess what? God is on your side too. This video is for any woman who’s ever been through what I have through or worse. To be able to still pick your head up, look in the mirror, smile and feel beautiful is CRUCIAL. Remember it’s not YOU, it’s HIM. Let’s keep it pushing and keep workin!

FYI – I saw the title “breakover” in this months Glamour mag issue. I thought it was too freakin perfect. Breakover; after breaking up with your boyfriend and geting glammed the hell up, whether it be through a hair color and/or cut or a new makeup. It’s time for a Breakover!

There’s no particular reason why I chose blue for this look, it in no way is a reflection of being sad or upset lol Really I just used blue glitter because I wanted to try my new LA Splash pigments and glitters that I just got my hands on!
