Daughn Gibson ~ ALL HELL Music Video

I was blessed to work with the most amazing Talented people & with Singer Daughn Gibson on his first Music Video~ All Hell.

We shot on day 1 a few hours out of LA where it was snowing and freezing, but we got some beautiful shots out in the winderness and had Dawn doing all kinds of stunts.
Daughn has this amazing amazing deep, dark,dramatic, almost sad feeling sound to his music, its very deep, I love his unique style!!

Part of our set was this beat up old Trailer from the 1930's!

Elizabeth Olsen

Right now I have a girl crush on Elizabeth Olesen!
She is stunning, I love how she does her Makeup & Hair!
(She is the sister of Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen.)

She does a lot of neutral toned smokey eyes or just a winged line with a nude lip and some bronzer. Simple, classic & stunning!

I love this look and do it on myself pretty much every day with a smokey eye and nude lips. ;)

Natural Beauty~ Makeup By Me

Sometimes LESS is so much MORE ;)

I had the pleasure of getting this stunning young bride Brittany ready for her wedding out in beautiful Wine Country, California.
I drove nearly 100 miles to get there!

She wanted something very natural, requested air brush makeup, matte nude colors & a nude lip, so that's what I did! I really see my work as a collaboration with my clients and designing the look together for their unique face, style & what makes them feel most beautiful.

On Brittany I used;
Face- I misted on a sheer cover of Dinair Airbrush system.
Cheeks- a matte bronzer by NARS.
Eyes- Costal Scents eyeshadow palette in matte neutral brown shades, MUFE Aqualiner, Waterproof mascara. Individual lashes by Ardelle.
Lips- I actually used a Creme blush by Stila that was matte.

So blessed and LOVE to do the work that I do!~

(Makeup by Me)

You may feel the need to acquire worldly goods today. (I feel this a LOT!! LOL!) You could feel that you are missing something internally, which might lead you to look for satisfaction in things outside of yourself. These feelings may be the result of a lack of connection to your inner needs. Perhaps today you can try to look within and become attuned to the true needs of your spirit. Consider finding some quiet time and asking your spirit what it requires at this moment. Listen closely for the answer. You may find that the answer lies in the spiritual and not the material world and that your desire for the material is simply a call for greater attention from your spirit.

(Try looking and feeling within and seeing yourself as a precious rare, one of a kind diamond! Because that is what we all are!)

Connecting to our spirit allows us to find what we genuinely need to satisfy ourselves. So often we look to the material world when we feel frustrated internally. But our external desires are simply a reflection of our spirit. When we feel the need to acquire something in order to fulfill ourselves, it means that we are not giving our spirit the attention it deserves. This tells us that we are ignoring our true desires and substituting them for other more fleeting ones. As we begin to listen to our souls, we will find that our real need is to love and be loved. If we allow ourselves to feel this love from within, we will find that we do not need to search for it elsewhere. By listening to your spiritual needs today, you will find a great source of contentment. ~ Courtesy of Daily OM

I love how the Makeup & Hair all of the Victoria Secret Fashion Shows, Advertising, Commercials etc is always very classic, clean, natural and beautiful.

Here is some products I recommend if you would like to enhance your natural Beauty like the Victoria Secret Angels ;)
I am a HUGE fan of their Makeup, and everything else of course. But the quality is really good, and the mascara as ive mentioned before is so amazing!! Also it is very affordable!!

Glitter Eyed- Beauty Tip & Glitter I love!

Here is The Makeup Store's Website, Love their products!!

Your Reality Reflects back what you Believe ;)

Your reality reflects back to you your consciousness and what you secretly believe about yourself.

Its all about our perception & projection, its so funny when people ask me to do a "Smokey eye" but every single persons view of what a smokey eye is, can be VERY different! Its all about our own perceptions. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Try walking around like you are the most beautiful person you know and see if you day changes for the better!!

Male Grooming! Ladies love a man who is well groomed ;)

Here are some pics from a shoot I did with a male model Philip and Photographer Matt Brown.
We did a few different looks, from 'slick & groomed' to a tousled 'bad boy' look with the leather jacket.

I believe that how we look plays a huge role in how we feel and how others see us. Its important to wear things that make you feel good!
When you take the time to look your best, and take care of yourself then others will really respect you and want to treat you better than if you show up looking like a slob. If you dont care about yourself and are lazy then why would people want to work with you??

There is nothing more attractive than a man that knows how to dress well and take care of himself,smells good etc, it shows that he cares. Also I think its important and so much fun to change up your look every 3-4 years, get a new haircut, change your styles, your signature look, try something completely different!

My current Mascara OBSESSION!!

I first discovered Victoria's Secret Makeup when I was playing around with the testers and their eye shadow colors were really beautiful and went on strong, and stayed on which is really important. Their Mascara is super cheap and affordable so I thought id try it out and OMG I love it! I am obsessed with mascara anyway and wear a lot of it! But their Mascara is amazing if you love really thick, long lashes like me!

Ive been obsessed with Mascara since I was 13, and if I was only allowed one beauty product for the rest of my life it would be Mascara for sure!!

Beauty Rush Mascara
This was the first one I bought which is amaizng

Some times just applying a few coats of Mascara, some neutral eye shadow and some lip gloss or tinted lip balm can do WONDERS!

Epic Mascara
This is the current mascara I use and its absolutely amazing if you love big lashes!
