Beauty Shots in Brooklyn

I had the opportunity to work with a great photographer, John DeAmara, and two gorgeous models, Dre and Brooke, during my visit here in NYC to work on some beauty shots and head shots.  I was excited to have my sister assist me for the first time!  Here are a few photos from my phone of Brooke.


 
We were able to do a fun braid for this final look!  Lips are OCC Lip Tar in Petty Beige (discontinued)


My trip is slowly coming to a close but I'm not packing up my kit just yet.  Before I leave I'm celebrating my birthday with my sister at Lips which I am sooo excited for!!  I wish I was able to see more queens perform while I was out here but one of my favorites, Manila!! is now bi-coastal in LA and NYC so I hope to see her in the very near future.

I've neglected this yet again...


I'm a terrible blogger (but y'all already knew that) My goal was to update my blog every 2-4 days since the new year but clearly that hasn't happened!  I need to get my shit together.

Yesterday I taught an intimate makeup workshop that covered EVERYTHING - the products, the basics, highlighting and contouring, an everyday neutral look, a smokey eye, etc. the WORKS basically.  It was a ton of fun and I had a great time!  I love to work with people who ask lots of questions and want to just LEARN everything because that's the type of person that I am. 

Last week I did some drag transformations on the male members of the band The Indecent.  They had a fun time with their looks and I got great shots on my camera. Here are some shots from my phone -

This wig is Nix & Nox Futura Wig in the style Rainbow in the color #27/30



This wig is Nix & Nox Futura Lace Front Wig in the style Venus in the color #35 (one of my favorites!)

I have so many photos to upload from my trip (and I'm not leaving for a while still!) that I really need to start blogging regularly.

Instagram Post

 I'm getting ready for my trip to New York!  This time I'm packing wigs, glitter, and my beard cover makeup stick!!!  Here are some looks I've been doing -- I probably won't be updating for a while (but what's new)



I WANT MY NI NI !!  This was for Halloween but I went to work like this too.  Lots of children and adults were scared, LOVE IT

The GLITTER IS BACK y'all.  I ordered 9 glitters from Medusa's Make-up!  I used Mix Blitz on the outer lid for this look.

More glitter + another look behind the cut!

Pink and Gold Look with Sugarpill Cosmetics





I'm in the middle of editing some videos for three halloween looks that I'm going to post!  One is an animal look so be ready if you're interested in making it part of your halloween costume!  For this look, I used Poison Plum on the brows, Tako on my highlight, Flamepoint and Dollipop on the lids and lower lash line, and some metallic gold shadow from another eyeshadow palette. 
Lashes are Red Cherry #74 stacked on top of another pair that I'm unsure of! 

Both eyes behind the cut!
