Happy #SelfieSunday! Today I decided to switch up my selfie with a little bit of sugar skull makeup! I felt inspired being that today is the last day of Dia de Los Muertos, a Mexican holiday celebrated from October 31st to November 2nd.

Happy Monday! Last weekend I had the honor of shooting photos of a very special birthday girl…in Disney World! It was definitely one of the best experiences ever! If I haven’t mentioned it before, for the majority of my photo shoots, I am also the makeup artist, hair stylist and “outfit advice giver” (I am in no way a stylist LOL). We spent our first day in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Both looks

Hello Lovelies! Let’s talk about tattoos. Don’t be alarmed, I’m talking about Maybelline® Eye Studio® Color Tattoo® 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow. This stuff is practically bulletproof. I discovered it about a year ago when I was searching for an affordable, cream based eyeshadow. I love this product because: 1. Intense Pigments 2. Long Lasting 3. No Creasing (Hallelujah!) 4. Easy Application I found it easiest to apply this using my finger. I always
Hello, lovelies! So, yesterday morning was the first time I have ever shot at sunrise. It was gorgeous! Here are a few images from the shoot featuring aspiring model Stephanie Morales. She is absolutely perfect and one of my closest friends! Enjoy! P.S. I do composite cards, if you’re ever looking for a photog!
Eyes: Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner, For the lid I used MAC Eye Shadow in ‘Cork’ & ‘Honesty’, for the brow bone I used MAC Shadow in ‘Nylon’ and Benefit’s ‘Watts Up’ (great for highlighting eyes, cheeks & nose!), and for the lashes I applied Demi Wispies from Ardell using DUO Adhesive in black Brows: E.L.F Brow Kit Face: Benefit’s ‘Pore-fessional’ Balm, MAC Studio Fix Concealer, MAC Matchmaster Foundation Contour &
