Pocahontas Inspired...

Every Makeup Artist is in love with color, and when artists are given the creative freedom to play with all the vibrant hues we can dream of... well, we're in Makeup Heaven. Here is a sneak peek of the Fashion and Beauty Editorial I did for Disfunkshion Magazine.

Models: Michaela Rabinov (below as our Indian Girl) and Briana Acosta, both from Premier Models and Talent. Key Hair & Makeup: Jessica Hoffman. Assistant Hair & Makeup: Rhiannon Mariani. Stylist & Photography: Hugette Montesinos.

For Disfunkshion Magazine on location at Sandy's Beach, Hawaii.

What? You think we'd give it all away?! You'll have to wait for the magazine to come out to see all the colors I used- turquoise, orange, purple, red, yellow and neon hot pink. It was ravishing, if I do say so myself.  

Until then... here's a lil something I 'colored' on our other model, Briana Acosta after we wrapped. Before we took all her makeup off, I asked her if I could add some red... here it is! 

I used MAKE UP FOR EVER flash pigment.

If you would like to support me and help make my dreams come true... then feel free to watch this video and vote on by clicking LIKE LIKE LIKE!!! 

Love ya! Enjoy! 

This is my submission for the NYX Cosmetics FACE Awards competition! I often attend Fashion Week and as I was browsing through all the beautiful images of the makeup backstage, I fell in love with the Roberto Cavalli look and thought- YES- this is the look I'll recreate for NYX!

Of course I had to change it a bit to make it my own, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I hope you enjoy it too and pick up a few ideas!

Thank you to my beautiful model, Eva Avery! I just love doing makeup on her pretty face.

Supermodel Lily Donaldson rocked this look on the Cavalli runway, and because she has such large, deep set eyes... it looked genius on her. I would love to create a look like this for Lady Gaga... you know, something fresh and feminine but colorful- in a water color sort of way. This look is romantic and bold all at the same time.

More videos and tutorials to come. I have definitely caught the beauty vlogger bug :-)
