I had the pleasure of working with Daniel Dae Kim, (for the third time) as well as the lovely Yun Jin Kim on a photo shoot for Entertainment Weekly. It's so nice to work with Daniel again, from the first time I worked with him for a television commercial to this shoot in Kahala... he's been ever so sweet! This day, his beautiful wife and cute lil boy showed up to the shoot to watch Daddy... I love seeing that!! We had a blast on the beach of Kahala and I got to work with some of my friends on the shoot as well. Out of all the beautiful, incredible pictures we shot that day, this was the only one to make it into the magazine. As a Hair and Makeup Artist you always hope that they'll pick the close up shot, but alas, this was the lucky image that made its debut in Entertainment Weekly.

I was delighted to have worked with the Hamptons Magazine as a Hair and Makeup Artist, on their Fashion Editorial entitled, An Untamed Spirit. We were all over the island of Oahu, from the beaches of the east side, to the shrimp trucks of the North Shore, from the red dirt farmland of Kunia to the mountain tops of the Pali! This island has so much to offer... and we took full advantage of every opportunity! I just love my work, even if it's 12 hours of working, I can't get enough of it! I heart being a Makeup Artist. <3

A dear friend and lovely young lady, Cassidy Metter (has since signed with FORD Models) was my very first model for my new foundation, Pure Beauty Ministries. We shot these images in back of Diamond Head, and prayed for sunshine! Although we had to sit through some rain, we ended up with the picture perfect light that I was praying for! Isn't that life, we get all frustrated when we have to 'wait through the rain', but God always blesses those who love him and are obedient to his word. He often blesses us in spite of us... and after the rain, comes just what we needed... a little bit of warm, golden sunshine from Heaven! I just love this sunburst in the picture above.
Miss Daeja Fallas shot these, along with her assistant; a great up and coming photographer Dallas Nagata... check them out at SmittenFoto.com. It's a beautiful site, with amazing pictures (as seen here!) This was taken from Daeja's Camera as she captured a beautiful moment in time... Look how the light of Heaven just shines down, from between the trees and touches the skin of this lovely young girl, dreaming about life.The Words Pure and Beauty can be seen through these images.... job well done ladies!!
And here's the crew who made it all happen: The Fab Four:
Model: Cassidy..... Director/Makeup/Hair: Myself..... Photographer: Deaja Fallas (wearing a perfect shirt for the shoot, "Beauty is Forever.").... Photographer Assistant: Dallas Nagata.

With this electrifying color collection, you'll be sure to ignite some excitment where ever you're bold enough to wear this HIGH VOLTAGE look! Maybe it's only in the studio, like our model, Kayko... or maybe you're the dare devil of your friends and would be willing to convert this look into something you'd wear to a concert or fashion event... My advice, go for it! Just remember with this high powered look, the lips play a supporting role and should be kept light and juicy (except when we're in the studio, we plug rhinestones onto them!) ... you wouldn't want to blow a fuse!
