Professional Grade: Sue Wong

I teamed up with the incomparable Kaylene Peoples (Agenda EIC), Bianca McMillan (hair) and Nia Dennis (stylist) for a photoshoot for Sue Wong.

We got to work on the lovely Isabella for the shoot:

I used the Armani Face Palette in #1 (Neo Black) to create this look. I used Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #27 as a base, then patted matte black shadow on top. I softened the edges with the shimmer charcoal green through the crease and under her waterline. I then put Armani Waterproof Eye Pencil in her waterline and applied Velour False Lashes (They’re Real). I contoured her cheeks with Chanel Notorious, and blush from the Armani Palette. On her lips is OCC Liptar in Memento.

Throughout the shoot, I only changed her lip color. The eyes stayed the same.

We also worked on a gorgeous male model (who’s name escapes me)…

…with stylist Nia Dennis.

I LOVE this picture. I don’t think Ash was too fond of it, but I love it. So I’m keeping it. 🙂
I had SO much fun on this shoot. Afterwards I crawled home and fell straight into bed. Today I got lovely texts from Isabella and the rest of the team. We work well together. Hopefully, we’ll do it again soon!

Jazz Music and a Makeup Giveaway (CLOSED)

Dear Southern California Jazz Enthusiasts:

You’re invited to get your groove on at El Cid this Wednesday, July 11th. Singers Kaylene Peoples and Jay Jackson are hosting a jam session. I’ve personally witnessed  both of them in action, and I have to tell you, they can blow!

Kaylene is also giving away 4 Smashbox Muse Eyeshadow Palettes at the show:

So you’ll get to hear some music, maybe eat a lot and drink a little (or vice versa) and maybe win a bit of makeup to boot!
