Wow, it's been a while.
I went to NYC for The Makeup Show. I got to experience makeup heaven and learned SO much about products, trends, and application techniques. Very fun :) I didn't take many pictures at the show (my hands were too full of products) but here's one from a Fall 2011 trends class. Think dewy finish, bold brows, and deep red lips!
After NYC, I hopped on a plane to St. John to meet my mom, Uncle Doug (her brother), his wife Lynn, and my cousin Jen (and her husband--Jeff). This was such an amazing vacation. Every view there is picturesque. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to go on these trips--the gratitude has not escaped me. Here are a few pictures from that adventure.
Now back to business. I have the fun job of doing hair and makeup for a photo shoot with the beautiful Vanessa Sandler (she owns Monkees on Daniel Island--go check it out!) and photographer Mark Pelekakis. For this shoot, she wanted a really bohemian, bronzey look. Her hair was to be a beachy, messy wave. Pictures turned out amazing!
Vanessa has naturally wavy/curly hair. It is really fine though, but she has a lot of it. It's gorgeous. I used a 1 inch barrel curling iron and curled her entire head. I used Moroccan Oil Hair Spray and sprayed it all over. I teased her crown and loosly tousled the ends. Easy-Peasy.
Vanessa has stunning blue eyes, so browns look GREAT on her. She is also heavy lidded so I can put hardly anything on, and her eyes look AMAZING--I
She is beautiful without makeup so my job wasn't difficult. Hope everyone enjoyed. Let me know if you have any questions.
