For those in Orange County, the Facialworks facial bar is the perfect way to give your skin a quick pick me up! Sit down at the facial bar and hang out with your friends while you get the refreshing oxygen treatment. Trust me, you will never want to leave!

For the complete pampered experience, I was on site giving makeovers to the ladies after their facials. They were all SO sweet, which made the experience all the more rewarding for me!!

Hugo V workshop in Houston, TX

I had a great time participating in a photography workshop held by Hugo V at our studio in Houston, TX. It was a two day event and photographers flew from across the continent to learn from Hugo himself. The event was hosted by my friend and creative partner, Rapheal from Digital Icon.  I did the makeup and hair for the models both days. Here are some of the finished results. I love seeing the different styles of the photographers!

The Makeup Show Dallas 2014

Finally, I was able to attend the Makeup Show! This is the first time The Makeup Show has come to Texas, and I am so glad that they did! Unlike other makeup trade shows, the Makeup Show is exclusive to makeup artists, and offers professional discounts on several pro brands. They provide so many educational opportunities in the form of workshops, demonstrations, and lectures. I attended the live video chat with one of my makeup inspirations, Wayne Goss. I also sat in on talks by a few other amazing makeup artists, including James Vincent, Melanie Inglessis, and Brian Sutherby. Hearing directly from these pros about their years in the industry was such an invaluable learning experience.


Some of my pictures are a little blury... next time I'll bring a better camera! Above is a picture of Brian Sutherby giving a demonstration using Kett airbrush foundations (my go-to foundation).

A peak into my haul from the show. I am completely impressed by all of the new products I'm trying.
The standout items for me are the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer - an amazing little jar of foundation, and the Inglot eyeshadows. I also picked up some items from Anastasia Beverly Hills, OCC, Nars, Mehron, Smashbox,  Muse, Gleam by Melanie Mills, and Chikuhodo.
I'm already looking forward to next year's Makeup Show!
