Face Painting

Man I am really sucking at this lately you guys, I am really sorry!  I meant to make a post on my birchbox this month but I haven't even gotten to taking pictures of it yet, and I have been using some of the stuff.  I am going to give birchbox one more month and I may cancel it, because honestly I haven't been that impressed with my first two boxes, I am holding off to see if the next one will be amazing since these two were a miss.

So I have been working a lot lately and thats why I have really been slacking, but I wanted to make a post to show you guys what I have been up to the past few days, it is a new hobby of mine and I am having SO much fun with it.  It started with a trip to the halloween store and I saw face paint, and thought I would give it a go on my daughter, and it turned into an obsession.  I didn't like the paint I got at the halloween store so I went and bought some better sets at Michaels and have been playing around with them, they are a lot better than the halloween store kind.

So my first attempt was this butterfly, I really like the way it came out, especially for my first attempt at face painting.

Then I decided I would try practicing a pirate look.  Arrrrr Matey!

Those were all with my original grease paint makeup, that I didn't like and she rubbed off in two minutes.  The next stuff I bought at Michael's dries almost immediately and stays put, much better!  She went to bed last night and I really wanted to try out the new paints, so I just started going to town on my hand and arm, I ended up with a half sleeve pretty much.

Today we decided to try a princess look.  I am not as happy with the way this one came out, she wasn't in a very sit still patient kind of mood so I messed up a few times and just had to go with the flow, but it was still fun!

So anyway, I am totally sorry for being a terrible blogger lately, I am trying to balance this new schedule with working, and kindergarten, it's difficult.  But, I hope you enjoyed the face painting, I am really enjoying having fun with it!

New Website and Recent Work

Hey guys!!!  Recently I had an opportunity to do work for a couple of different events.  One was for the Sexy Bitch Cosmetics Launch Party and the other was for an OpLove photo shoot.

Sexy Bitch Cosmetics asked me to help do makeup for promo girls and also for doing makeovers at their makeup line launch party.  The launch party was so much fun and it was a great experience.  I did makeovers on quite a few ladies, but it was crazy busy so it was too hard to get a lot of photos.  I really love their makeup line they have created and had so much fun getting to work with them!  Their cream foundation is absolutely amazing, it creates a flawless finish without feeling heavy on the skin.  Here are a couple photos from the event.

I also had a chance to do makeup for a lovely lady whose husband will soon be deploying.  The photo's were done for an OpLove photo shoot.  Jessica was so much fun to work with.  She was so beautiful and had the most gorgeous eyes I have ever seen!

I also recently created a business website and would love for you guys to check it out and let me know what you think!!
