I AM VERY EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT I WILL BE WORKING WITH LONI SWAIN OF WGCI TO DO HAIR. Networking can be great and so can word of mouth. It is very important to keep a good work ethic,positive attitude, and positive energy anytime you work with anyone. You never know who you could come across when you do gigs. I just so happen to be doing the make-up for models, at an upcoming jewelry designer(Kim Essex of ESSEXORIES) a few weeks ago and the ladies loved my work. The designer has a daughter whose involved in the broadcasting/media world(Briana Fachon Daniels like her FB) and she was at the show and we talked about my talents; next thing I know I'm checking my emails and there is opportunity waiting for the rest is going to be my history. BUT THIS GOES TO SHOW YOU, OPPORTUNITY SOMETIMES COMES KNOCKING AND WHEN IT DOES YOU MUST ANSWER IT OR IT WON'T COME AGAIN, BUT OFTEN TIMES, OPPORTUNITY DOESN'T KNOCK YOU MUST KICK THAT DOOR DOWN AND GO IN FULL FORCE(OPTIMUS PRIME IN THIS BIACTH)

Classic looks are what I strive for, the more you get to know me the more you'll see that I'm really simple with my looks but occasionally will add a trend to the mix or something corky; that's just me. I don't try to do  too much,who wants to look like they tried hard at something...not me and I'm pretty sure you don't want to either. So the trend I wanted to follow this time, was 'ombre lips'. I first seen it done with bold colors;like blue. Was not a fan until I saw it done in orange by this 'You Tuber'.
so I took a shot at it but I kept it soft; by doing my pin up girl inspired makeup. I kept a nude eye, with neat bold eyeliner, stand out eyebrow, and of course the famous red lip. To keep it on the soft sexy side, I used a brown lip liner, and a NYX lipstick in Bruised. Try this lip trend next time you got a date,going to the club or even work. I wore a rust/gold ombre to work the other day, the ombre lip trend is definitely a bold look but it can be kept classy and not over powering by keeping the shades on the normal side. I hope to see some of you all pics with this trend....don't be scared be BAD....always in a good way ;-)

Anyone who knows me knows hair/make-up is my thing, I'm getting back into 'my craft' now. I took a couple of years for me to realize that I needed to work with my craft inside of against it;and for years I did. I've always been into fashion and spent last six years of my life managing fashion retail in popular chain stores, but that's not for me anymore. Thursday I quite my job to pursue my career,to take charge of my future. I'm a lil scared of what's to come but I'm going to keep faith in me and what I know I'm capable of and its waaaayyy more than what I was doing. Everyone is like,'I don't know why you quite hair school in the first place'. I just tell them it wasn't for YOU to figure out, I to be ready. And now I am most certain I'm ready; no more dealing with rude(not to mention ghetto, ratchet) customers who swim no drown in the river of denial(get it the Nile river...ha ha ha) anytime you give them a size larger than what they 'think' they are. No more superiors who think the company belongs to them so they act as such and they just as disposable as the next nig**, but who cares farewell to all that fuckery....I'm breathing again because I'm free to do me..THE ONLY PERSON WHO SETS YOUR FUTURE IS YOU

i thought of this months ago

Okay so I'm watching the BET awards and just fell in love with Miguel's outfit (and his date I'm a do an inspirational look for her next week). It was all red, one of me fave colors next to orange and pink; but it was red on red. Months ago I fell in love with something I call 'SOLIDI ZING' its taking all solid colors of the same color and wearing them. I thought about doing looks like that because I am not a fan of color blocking; I'm into fashion but I hate color blocking, unless it neon or brights. I would give or try to put some of my customers into looks like this but some were afraid of doing all one color or some feel like,if everything is not one shade then its off. NOT TRUE....granted all Miguel's reds matched, it was cool. I like different shades, and textures being mixed it adds another dimension to a look one may consider to be boring but adding texture and hues offers something else. I got this jumpsuit at Ashley Stewart (all dresses/jumpsuits are 30% off) it was only $20,jewelry was buy 1 get 1 50% off, the blazer was thrift-ed, shoes are like 2 years old I got from Bare feet, and hand bags came from Marshall's. Being a lil on the plump side i was afraid to do this look but when i saw me.....OOOO WEEEEE, BABY BYE, I'M FYE.......YOU ALREADY KNOW, GET WIT IT OR GET LOST

doing me and you should do the same

A few weeks ago I was at some of my local stores just browsing and came across a few pieces that I just instantly knew I could come up with a outfit. Thanks to Ross,Marshall's, and my local salvation army, I was able to complete my looks. I'm not one whose big on names(if i had the $ i would be) long as it look good; I'm the only one who see the tag in the inside, so to hell for those who got something to say. I did me in these looks and so should you, put on what you want, wear it how envisioned it....someone somewhere gone like it....and even if they don't; shit you like it and that's all that matters. Tell them folks, GET WIT IT OR GET LOST!  #1badbrand
