Birds of a Feather

Do you ever have those days when you set out to do one thing, but end up doing something completely different?

That is how this makeup design happened.

I gathered my ideas, listened to inspirational music, pinned images, sketched out the design yet during the application process something changed.

Something magically creative happened.

I love being in the moment and letting inspiration flow through me. I love the end result, looking at the finished product and finding out I like it just a bit more that my original idea.

Oh to be able to bottle these magically creative moments!!

For now I will have to settle for taking pictures to remember these moments by!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!!

I love Halloween and as a treat for everyone I am unveiling a new monthly entry to my blog!

This new monthly feature brings me back to the foundation of my love for makeup which all began while I was in college as a Theatre major.  I enjoyed  my acting classes, but I adored the makeup classes.  Being able to design and create makeup for characters was just so much fun and I found that it is a great way to express your character without saying any words.

So without further ado or for those of you who did not immediately scroll to the pictures,  I bring you my


Fantasy Makeup Segment!

Products: Paradise Makeup AQ in Basic & Pastel palettes.

I thought a Day of the Dead look would be a great fit for today’s Halloween unveil!

I loved looking at the many images and interpretations of this makeup style.  Each interpretation is unique to the individual person and each were just so beautiful to look at.  I absolutely love when I can find ideas/looks where really there are no right or wrongs!
Wishing everyone a great and safe day today.
