Smokey Bridal Makeup Tutorial
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


The Smokey Bridal Makeup tutorial everyone has been inquiring about in my last couple videos this week is finally here :)

If you haven’t already noticed, I am REALLY enjoying and getting my money’s worth out of my Urban Decay Naked Palette. If you don’t already own one, you might want to consider it so you can follow along with all the fun the rest of us are having ^_^ this is truly a makeup artist and makeup enthusiast must have!

Anyhow, as I’ve been discussing on Facebook and Twitter and here on the blog, I’d like to do a series of bridal looks. But being that bridal is such a large genre, I’d like to do a few looks to fit different styles for every bride. The smokey/glam bride is what I’d like to consider this one. Because bridal, quite frankly to me, isn’t just about a natural look. I thought I’d kick it up just a notch :)

here’s some photos of the look

Brandy/Monica It all Belongs to Me featuring JeanFrancoisCD on YouTube!
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


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.
