Heavy Metals

I held my very first event on Friday at Sephora 150 Broadway and it was a huge success. I would like to thank all of you that came out, it was a pleasure meeting you. A big thanks to all of you that sent love from afar as well, it meant a lot. I will be posting a recap with lots of pictures but today I am giving you guys an up close look with details of my makeup for the event. I went for a futuristic metallic makeup look using different metallic shades. A lot you asked for details on Instagram and Facebook so here you go…

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.
