Kissable Couture.......I can't get enough!

Visiting The Los Angeles Make Up Show today, I ran into my longtime friend, and celebrity make up artist, AJ Crimson. I have been using his Kissable Couture glosses on my clients for a while now, but this new shade he has out called "First Lady" is a must have!!! Surely something to blog about, I purchased several glosses today in support of the idea itself.

Working with clients like Estelle, Letoya Luckett, and Fergie, he has surely been keeping busy. A little over 2 years ago, he partnered up with his client/friend Keisha Nash Whitaker, wife of Forest Whitaker to make his dream a reality, and I couldn't be more proud of him:) Make sure you pick up a gloss soon, because they are a real treat. $22

Actor Ronreaco Lee.......up close and personal

I had the chance to do a very laid back photo shoot with actor, Ronreaco Lee. I'm sure most of you know him from the boyfriend on "Sister Sister" back in the day, or from Joan's younger boo on a few episodes of "Girlfriends". He recently played the role of Chuck in "Madea Goes to Jail", and he is staying busy. Catch him on "In The Motherhood", a TV series that premieres March 26th on ABC!

He is a really down-to-earth, southern dude from ATL, and we had such a fun time shooting.

Congrats to him and his recent engagement to his longtime girlfriend! He planned out everything perfectly, and I got all the details:) Ladies, there are still some men out there who believe in the real thing, and they go after it!

No news, is good the old saying goes!

Well, 3 months have passed since I last blogged, but I am happy to say that 2009 has started out well for the Jackson family...

Lollipop Artistry, Inc. has been making moves as a company. Partnering up with the clothing line "Cowgirl Heaven", providing the creative direction for their new campaign. This is one of the great shots by photographer Brittany Dixon.
Not to mention, providing the backstage beauty support to the fashion school, FIDM, as they shot their product commercial for the 2009 design graduates. To top it all off, during Grammy Awards week, Essence Magazine invited us out to provide make overs for an event sponsored by Toyota. Needless, to say we have been very busy!!

Making Grammy weekend extra exciting for me was doing make up for Grammy winner, Chrisette Michele, and Grammy nominee Janelle Monae.

Chrisette was dressed by the fabulous June Ambrose of Mode Squad, and she looked like a winner the entire night. What an amazing talent, congrats!

Janelle Monae is such a sweet spirit, and a pleasure to work with. She is even more cute and doll-like in person:) Congrats to her for her nomination! My clients are the truth...
