Mays recap / update - blip

.... its already the end of May. :'(
  I will write this to give you some what of an update:
   So the month started out coming home from London.  That was so amazing.. im growing sad I wont return for awhile.  I miss it and everything there.. it was so life changing.  Luckily, I am still in contact with the people I met out there :)
  Shortly after I went to Vegas with family.  That was something crazy to experience.  I have never been before and it was quite fun.  I didn't booze up too much because its not my thing... I gambled a little and won none. haha.  The D casino reminded me of home. [If you hadn't known.. I am from Michigan, Detroit area]  I wanted to visit Area 51 but didn't realize we had passed it on the way home, so we stopped at Alien Fresh Jerky instead hahaha.  Really good jerky ;)  I definitely want to go again, this time with friends :)
  Then, my good friend Sasha had her 33rd Birthday party at the Rainbow Room.  She had a Jesus theme to celebrate her "Jesus Year" - if your not familiar with Jesus religion.. he died at the age of 33.
 - That was the most fun I have had with friends in a loong ass time.  so much needed.  I really liked my outfit and it gave me cravings to dress up crazy, crazy again.
   And now - I am just trying to work a bunch to regain my savings - so that jeopardized me filming tutorials or doing portfolio makeup looks for awhile.  All I have been doing the past couple weeks is waking up, work, and sleep.  I am bored with that now.  Luckily, next month I will be a little more busy.
  First off, the video I worked on and was in is going to be released June 3rd on Vemo.  Its the Motionless in White "America" music video.  I did Chris' makeup and then was able to fill in as one of the gogo dancers.  I am excited to see how it turned out.  This is my first Music Video haha.
  Second, I will be working on my friend Krystina again and giving her a few makeup looks for my portfolio. :)  Yay pause in life over!!  lets get back to "getting shit done."

I hope you enjoyed reading my may update.  XO <3

London Trip - :)

I just got home from my 10 day vacation in London.
I really enjoyed my time there and was sad I had to leave.  I plan to go back again soon.  I still have more I want to do. :)
* for more photos just go to my Instagram and Tumblr, links are on the left side of this screen

I had planned this trip around a 5 day course at the Illamasqua Flagship Store.  I took Mastering Professional Makeup and sat in on a day of Vintage Glamour.
Randomly right before my trip there was an invite to attend the David Bowie Inspired Makeup Event by Alex Box.  Such awesome timing, I bought my ticket to go see her work in person.  I teared up because it was so surreal.. Such inspiration and motivation.

Im in the classroom.

I met up with Gabby while I was out there.  We went to Cyberdog and I bought two outfit pieces.  I will model them soon.
She was such a fun person to show me around London.  I had such a blast and was so happy to have met so many amazing people and made so many friends.



During my time out there the collection Paranormal Launched.  This is like a ravers dream!! Neon nail polish with a black light receptive top coat, waterproof eyeshadows, liner, skincare, shimmer, and lipsticks!!  I bought the skin care and Posture Lipstick.  I kind of regret not buying the E.S.P. color. :/




This was pretty much what I bought out there.  New crystals, Sage, Makeup, and Tea.  haha not much but stuff I needed.. hehe



Yay I graduated - ^_^

Hair Update

Alright... I must say I FEEL SOO AWESOME!!  I have been up to quite a lot and it keeps going.  And my monthly horoscope seems very good as well. <3 your monthly horoscope

 Yesterday I spent the day organizing my things and getting rid of clutter and junk. Then, I guess I saw my bleach and was like hmmm.. lets retouch my roots.. to this new hair cut! haha
I have shaved parts of my head when I was 19.. so this isn't really anything new.. I have had so many hairstyles so why not redo this one. :)  I just trimmed/shaped my fringe and then shaved the sides. :)

Here is what I wore today too.

Makeup Application for Chris Motionless


A few weeks ago Chris contacted me about doing his makeup for a photo shoot and music video while he is in LA.  Such perfect timing!! haha  
I had such a blast doing his makeup today.  We shot the photo shoot today and I was able to grab a few good behind the scene photos.  Next week is the music video and after today I am suuppeerr excited to work with these guys again.  I was so happy with the way the makeup turned out.  I cannot wait to see what the photographer snagged.  

Here is my work station where the art begins!

I am at work!  Oh it feels so nice to do this for a living!!! <3



Here is the Makeup finished.  I CANNOT WAIT! to see the professional ones, I bet those will be killer!

The studio we were in had this little Zen station... we should have used it.  But instead no one lit any incense.  I didn't even see this section until I was about to leave... otherwise I may have lit one :)




The bottom half of my outfit.. :)  Super cute, and not at all hard to work in. hehe














Yay all of them looking good!!! <3
