My Website

Hey Beauty Fanatics!

I'm so sorry that it has been a while. I have been involved in so many different projects. I have been getting everything in place for school, which I start in mid June, I've been doing consults for different occasions, helping with end of the year things for the kids, and wait for it....working on getting a website together.

I'm so excited because it will give me a chance to include an online portfolio, my blog, and information about my business and me. That way, I can get the word out to the world. I would like to specialize in weddings, proms, and special occasions. So, my work will reflect that. I have 2 graduations and 2 weddings coming up. As soon as I get those in, I'll post them.

I'm doing my best and working with my cousin to get my website live for everyone to see.

Please let me know what kind of looks you'd like to see so that I can get those posted.

Don't forget to put your NYX order in! 50% OFF!!!!!!!!!! It ends Friday, May 15th. Check out my previous post with the details or go to

Have an amazing weekends!

Bridal: Judy

Hey Beauty Fanatics!

Hope you all had a good weekend. Today, I got the opportunity to practice doing bridal makeup on my cousin, Judy. It was so much fun doing this with her and getting the chance to catch up, as girls do! This is a neutral bridal look that can be worn for weddings, prom, the office, or whatever your heart desires.

Judy is already so gorgeous, as you can see, so all she needed was a simple, elegant look.

Please be sure to keep checking for more photos at

I'm really hoping to do more bridal makeup. I love that doing something like this involves you in one of a person's biggest milestones in life! So, if you or someone you know is a bride-to-be and needs a makeup artist for the wedding or is interested in seeing if they like my work, please tell them about me!!!
