OK...I have been HELLA BUSY lately, and I love it. I have been doing weddings, fashion shows, photo shoots, etc. etc. Ummm...I did a fashion show called The Art of Modeling where all the proceeds goes to send college freshmen of low income familes to college. GREAT CAUSE!! That was awesome. I had to stand for 8 continuous hours of non-stop makeup and I loved every minute of it. I attached a few pictures of that and will have more once I get the CD from my photographer.

Other great news...I am sure you are aware of the big Essence Music Festival concert that is here in New Orleans every 4th of July weekend. Well, during that weekend, there are nothing but parties, events, seminars, and of course the concert. To make a long story short, I was contacted by the Event Coordinator of Commonground Marketing in Chicago (google them, they are BIG) to do light makeup demonstrations for the hospitality suite hosted by Alberto Culver (google them, they are even BIGGER) and Honey Magazine. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG! I am SOOOOOOO excited! I signed the contract today so I am officially hired. You cannot understand the joy I feel! You know I will have pics if my photographer can come and shoot me doing work. The suite is for celebrities and special invited guests only. I cannot wait!!

SO, because of all this, I have to get a tradename because I want something everyone can remember me by and something I can expand into a household name. Like a brand name. My name is....well, I wanna say but won't until my trade name paperwork is filed and finalized cause I don't wanna jinx myself.

I have other gigs lined up but that is my BABY!

Pics are below...let me know your thoughts...

Thanks for stopping by...I'll try to update more often. Let me know your thoughts and ideas!

Photo Shoot w/ Purpleink Models

A week ago today I did a photo shoot with Purpleink Mgmt. models. These girls were a real pleasure to work with. They showed true professionalism as well as were very down to earth so I had a blast doing their makeup for this shoot. The photographer, Cliff Lemar (who is awesome) sent me these pics (just one of each girl). These are not photo shopped at all so the makeup is STRICTLY my work. He will do the editing to the photos (which are waayyy more than are shown here) once Valencia lets him know what she wants done. But anywhoo...on to the pics...
Me...hard at work...

The lovely Valencia Christina (owner and model w/Purpleink Mgmt)
