Well, "Hello, again!"

Hello, my friends!

I've seemed to have abandoned this blog with more favoritism shown to my YouTube channel and Instagram. What? You didn't know I was on Instagram? Here's the link... it seems I am able to keep up with that one the most as I can post in a simple click of the button. Diva's Instagram

So much has happened since my last posting. I've been keeping myself busy.I'll definitely try posting a bit more on this page. Do stay tuned!! For now, I leave you with some images from a recent bridal shoot that I participated in. The published shoot can be found here

Busy busy!

Hey Lovelies!

I feel like I'm constantly running. Prom & weddings keep me busy, but I'm not complaining. Here is the video that I did capturing the prep process I went through while getting my daughter ready for prom. Everyone is asking for the name of the shimmer powder I used on her body. It's Victoria's Secret Brilliant Shimmer All-Over Powder in Bombshell. I didn't see it on their website, so I hope it's not being discontinued. Check your local Victoria's Secret that carries their makeup line. When all else fails, check eBay. I saw it for $14.99! Enjoy the video!

As I kill time waiting for alternate side parking to be up, I'm studying color theory. As a makeup artist, it's highly valued knowledge! Have a blessed day!!!

Lippie of the day!

So, I'm in Brooklyn making my way to Dance Africa. Following the trend if bold lips, I've decided to don orange hued lips. This is Magnolia Makeup's Electro Peach topped with Armour Beauty's orange gloss, Lucy!


Dance Africa is a celebration of all things African... eating, drinking, dancing.... Today is the LAST day. Here is a video footage of what I experienced last year. See you there!

Sunglasses haul and more over the Memorial Day Holiday weekend!

First and foremost, my hats off, round of applause and standing ovation to the men and women in the armed services of America. It takes courage to do what they do. Everyday should be Memorial Day, especially for those whose lives were lost to protect our freedoms.

With the Memorial Day Weekend, comes the thought of finally experiencing the warmer summer climates and donning a cool pair of shades. Here are several bargain pairs that I picked up in my recent haul!!! Enjoy!

Also, today will be the last of Dance Africa festival in the downtown section of Brooklyn, New York. Hop the 2,3,4,5 to Atlantic Avenue! Hope to see you there!

Trends in Eyebrows...

Hello, my lovelies...

As I perused some of my favorite fashion and beauty magazines, I noticed the trend of eyebrows returning to a more fuller look... think Brooke Shields when she first came out as a model in the Calvin Klein ads (IF you're old enough to remember). As a makeup artist, it forces you to challenge yourself and push your aesthetics from the usual "routine style" you may have. Can you adapt? It's vital to stay modern. What are your thoughts? Do you think you'll try a fuller brow?

RIP, Queen of Disco- Donna Summer

Today I was shocked to hear of the passing of Donna Summer. Yesterday, it was the passing of Chuck Brown, King of the Go-Go sound and today we have lost the queen of disco. Listening to her music bought back happy memories growing up in the Bronx, living carefree, not knowing the stress that adults dealt with. That's when I thought her "Bad Girl" was referring to naughty kids that didn't listen to their parents.

Here is a look that I did almost two years ago inspired by her. May her soul rest in peace!
