Simple Eyes

People think that they have to sit for hours for their makeup to look perfect.

In the next few weeks

I will show you tips and tricks on how to do your makeup

so it looks pretty, perfect, and simple.

Here is a quick tip… This is one pigment from MAC,

swipe it across your lid.

and apply natural Demi Wispie Lashes from Ardell.


One Eye shadow, eyeliner is optional, some lashes and your ready to go!!!

I was at my sons school for his birthday and all the little

5 year old girls kept looking

at my eyes and saying they were pretty hahah.

My son was so proud saying thats MY mom!

hahah Kindergartens are way too cute!

SoulPancake For the OWN Network

February 21, 2012

I am so grateful to be working with these amazing people! They are so positive and creative and I couldn’t ask for a better group of people that I would want to be around. These are short episodes that air on the OWN Network.

My life long goal is to meet OPRAH! I have not done that yet but working for something that aires on her Network is very close so maybe soon :/ plus I love the concept and everyone on set is awesome! They want me to bring Azella! (picture above is Azella and I on set)

The crew setting up this huge old vintage TV set that they made themselves!

Below are a few of the episodes that have already aired, you’ll get the idea of the show when you see these episodes. Hopefully they will extended the length of the show and they can turn into 30minute episodes. :)

Adeles Grammy Makeup Tutorial

February 16, 2012

Adele looked STUNNING at the Grammys! She was by far best all around with her makeup, hair, gown! I can just go on and on about how gorgeous she looked. So my picture is a little exposed due to the flash but if you watch the video I recreated EXACTLY how Adeles makeup looked for the red carpet and for her performance! She went for the classic old Hollywood look and she pulled it off perfectly!

I love that she made this album from her past experience with an EX. We all have those “bad” experiences but the fact her album was successful her EX must be kicking himself in the butt right now! hahah I love it!

So here is the 2nd look. All her makeup Artist did was add a little bit more color to her crease and instead of her bright red lip they gave her more of a natural pink lipstick.

Click on the video below to see how to get this look and what products to use!

Hope you all LOVE it! For more of my videos click go to (click on link).

Matte Heart Nails

February 12, 2012

Count Down:

2 Days til LOVE day! if you have that special someone you are going to spend your V.Day with you should manicure your nails to look like these. It says Valentines Day without being in your face! How adorable are these?

I used China Glaze black nail polish.

and China Glaze Matte Magic nail polish! this is my new favorite. All you have to do is apply a coat or 2 on top of any color polish and it turns the polish into a flat finish! AMAZING!

So here is another picture of my fabulous nails without the red heart on my ring finger.

To learn how I did the hearts and see exactly what I did step by step check out my video below. :)

I hope you guys LOVE!!!
