Birthday Makeup Tutorial

Today is August 4th, 2012 and it is my 25th birthday.

Yeah! Leo swag all day!

Since I’m working tonight (thumbs down) and can’t be with my family and friends this year to celebrate I thought it would be fun to do a makeup look to celebrate. When all else fails, PAINT! This look is sultry, sexy, and epitomizes the way I like to look on my special day.

This was a look using more of my new LA Splash Cosmetics which I can’t get enough of, I may have to do some swatches of my small collection for you guys but I’d like to wait until I order more stuff from them


YAY for birthday makeup looks! 😀

Brandy/Monica It all Belongs to Me featuring JeanFrancoisCD on YouTube!

Collaboration time! The fun part about making is being able to creatively bring heads together with other artists. JeanFrancoisCD on YouTube contacted me about doing this look for the new Brandy and Monica Video, It all Belongs to Me and thought it would be awesome to do our own versions of the looks. I can’t remember the last time I did a video collaboration but I had so much fun with this one! Simply because he not only is fabulous as an artist but also as a person. I had fun and it was fun to be someone else for a change; the makeup looks in this video are off THE chain. Here, let me show you! (Watch full screen and in high quality if available, it does it MUCH better justice!)

Here is my version of the look Jean did the lime look that Monica wore in the video and I recreated the purple look Monica wore with nude lips.
