Blusher

I haven't posted any recent blusher videos lately. This is what I do as my day-job, its a little different from my norm, but i hope you enjoy these videos. <3
I help out with every blusher video thats made, some more then others, here are some of my favorites.

Starting with the Face Masks Video: Im super proud of this video, I did a ton of research and fought really hard to make this one happen. The rose mask is 100% original! I teamed up Demitri and we knocked this one out of the park. For some reason they wanted me to cover my tattoos in this video, since we used a model, a little bit of a bummer, but oh well. 
My friend Maya took some beautiful still for us as well, ill include them here too.

This next one is "hair hacks" It was a really quick one, and allot of fun for us to make. Again Dem and I killed this video <3

Both Videos were shot & edited by my partner in crime Demitri // @lifeasdem

This last one was a real struggle and a great learning opportunity. The blusher team went through many changes during the course of production, too many reshoots to count, and lots of growing pains. But im still very proud of this video and how far it came.
This video was shot by Helen. Edited by John Tulp. Assited by Demitri

Yulia

SO IN LOVE with these photos. I was able to catch Kirstin on her trip out to LA and we took some beautiful images.  We shot this in the middle of summer in a hot studio in the middle of the fashion district. It was harsh, but I could not be happier with how the shoot came out. 
I've been favoring minimal makeup recently. I've been really into simplicity, and feel i can focus more on the quality of the makeup and really enjoy the discipline of it.

I LOVE THE FAIR. I love fair food, I like looking at rocks and all the exhibits and I love the atmosphere and the rides, basically all of it. For this shoot we went down to the OC fair and shot a new campaign for Barton Perreira. Im super proud of this video.. Not to mention that we all got to eat elote & funnel cakes <3

Ice Cream

I guess millennial pink is a thing. hahah 

I had such a good time exploring the Arts District in DTLA with Ryan. I went to the Museum of ice cream a few months ago, and knew we had to shoot against their pink building.  We caught the last bit of golden hour before it disappeared over the towering dtla skyline. After shooting we of course hit up PizzaNista right around the corner, definitely my favorite pizza in downtown. You gotta check them out next time you're in the area.

So I kept my makeup on from work that day, adding a quick cat-eye with my favorite NYX liquid eyeliner. Skin is a NYX foundation stick, highlight is from that really cool opalescent highlighting pallet from Lime Crime. Contour is Bahama Mama by the Balm (of course) and i threw on a quick liquid lipstick from Lime crime's velveteen collection.

Outfit: Top: Brallet from Foreign exchange, i bought it years ago. and its till one of my favorites.
Jacket is thrifted with some DIY loving on those shoulder studs. I got my studs from studs and spikes dot com.
Skirt is old school American Apparel.
Sock from the santee alley
Shoes are my beloved docs.

Thank you so much Ryan for taking these pretty photos of me!

Weekly Glam + Blusher

Hi guys! 
This weeks 'Weekly Glam' is going to be a little different. As you may know I am now producing videos for Blusher, a beauty page on Facebook and IG. For one of our videos I had the chance to do makeup on some lovely co-worker for a contouring video. It was sooo much fun, ive missed doing makeup on other people hahah. 
The Blusher team really came together on this, and im very proud of this video. The video was a little more difficult then we originally thought, and we had a slight learning curve as we gained a new member to the team. But I am very very pleased with the final product.
So, I am sharing the video and also sharing photos of makeup i did on these ladies. You can see my work unedited/unretouched.

Rose Garden

Took a few photos with my friend Allegra in one of my favorite places in La, the USC Rose Gardens. I love spending time here, its pretty close to dtla, and gives me a little break from the hectic city. Dont get me wrong, I love downtown, but sometimes its nice to just slow down and take my usually routine eles where. I often bring books or a small watercolor set up, its hard not to be inspired by the different colors and blooms & gardens have to offer.
I try to surround my self with flowers as often as I can. (I keep my loft filled with fresh blooms from my weekly trips to the flower market) And the rose gardens is one of those gems i frequent as often as I can.

On this day Allegra and I went down to catch the beautiful morning light and strolled around the roses for awhile before deciding to take some of my favorite photos. Makeup & Outfit photos at the bottom of this post.

Weekly Glam

My weekly glam section of my blog might be coming to pause for a little while.

I don't think i've announced this on my website yet, but im now working full time as the
in-house beauty prouder for First Media. So while I am still taking on private clients, and still shooting, my schedule is extremely limited. I imagine once i'm settled into this new job, ill be able to think a little straighter and plan a little better.

Adjusting to this new life has been rather difficult on me. Im such a free spirit and freelancer at heart. But if there is one thing ive learned from this industry is when opportunity comes knocking, you better answer.

Angel

I spent Easter Sunday shooting at the Santa Monica Boardwalk soaking up the sun.
For her make-up I used a mix of BenNye blush and Sugarpill pinks for that pop of pink. I went over it with a Wet n Wild clear Gloss. Skin is MUFE ultra HD foundation, I also used Milani Cosmetics for that highlight. Her lips are a NYX pencil and NYX butter gloss.

*Fun fact, Angel and i have known each other for hella years. We've worked with allot of the same photographers through out our careers, crossed paths during shoots and were extras in a Chris Brown & T-Pain music video.

Summer

Already spending hella time at the beach, and keepin real busy with makeup and artsy things. 
Took some cool photos with Peoneemoull when we were checking out Venice Beach. I kept my makeup super minimal and opted for warm bronze colors.
More about me here, and YouTube.

For this look I used Smashbox Photo Ready primer,  It fills in pores and gives my skin a soft defused look. Then I used my go-to IT Cosmetics CC+ cream in "medium" This just helps with evening out my skin tone and gives a nice radiant glow all by itself. And IT Cosmetics, 'bye bye undereye' concealer, MY FAVORITE conceler in terms of coverage and blendbility. I of course contoured, using a SmashBox Cosmetics contour stick, and highlighted with a cream highlight from Milani Cosmetics. Then set my face with NYX Dewy spray and a light translucent powder to set my undereye. I then used a powder contour, "Bahama Mama" by The Balm Cosmetics. And highlighted my face with Artiste Couture Diamond Glow Powder.
Eyebrows are 'Anastasia BeverlyHills Dipbrow, and my eyes are primed with a NYX eyeshadow primer. I used my Melt Cosmetics Dark Matter stack, like always lol.And Dose of Color double dose lashes :)
For lips, i threw on a NYX butter gloss.
