80's Inspired Makeup for Music Video

I recently wrapped up a Music Video shoot with my team "The Skyscraperz" for music artists (Skematics & CVT) for their video "Get Butt Naked". Sounds fun doesn't it?! LOL It's a great dance/club song that will definitely get your body moving! We were going for an 80's retro feel all around so this is my makeup inspiration below:

Luckily, I had a beautiful canvas to work on with each model.

That was easy! ;)

Rick Ross Photo Shoot for The Source Magazine

I had the opportunity to work with renowned photographer and creative director from The Source magazine, Don Morris on Rapper Rick Ross' photo shoot in New York City. I had the pleasure of glamming up two beautiful models Angelique and Dawn and it was a treat to see the results!

Here are some behind-the-scenes pics:

Celebrity DJ Beverly Bond Photo Shoot

Mr. Don Morris contacted me to be apart of this photo shoot and it was definitely a pleasure meeting the extraordinary Ms. Beverly Bond. Not only is she a talented DJ and former model but she is the founder of "Black Girls Rock" organization and has a school to help aspiring DJ's learn the tricks of the trade and all for a good cause!

Here are some behind-the-scenes pics at The Source Magazine headquarters in NYC.

Summer Beauty Tips on TV Exclusiva!

I was invited to give some Summer Beauty tips and conduct a 'quickie makeover" on "TV Exclusiva" show. My summer beauty tips included using coral colors and a bronzer is a must have! It was my first time doing a makeover on a TV show and I was a bit nervous but it was lots of fun and a great experience!

Where Beauty Meets Entertainment!

I've always loved being in front of the camera ever since I was a little girl, for both pictures and video. I mingled with the idea of being a TV host/Correspondent a couple of years ago when someone approached me about it and I went for it. It was a lot of fun and nerve-wrecking at the same time. I had the pleasure of meeting so many talented souls including celebrities that I have admired along the way!

Here are a some photos of me 'in action'conducting interviews in NY:
