Industry Art Shops continues to grow...

I am a big fan of all things fashionable, beautiful, fabulous, and unforgettable!! So if you care like I do about who's wearing what, who's doing who's make up, and hair....then keep your eye on this new blog , from my new company Industry Art Shops. It's your sneak peak at everything behind the scenes. I am getting the info straight from the artists' mouths about your favorite celebrities.

As artists keep creating magic out there in the industry, I will keep talking about them. Stay tuned for an in depth look at Rhianna's make up and wardrobe from Kanye's new video "Paranoid".

...and I can't leave myself out. Check out one of my new pics using all Smashbox products for a campaign I'm doing for them:) (not retouched)

VNP Fashion Show @ Cinespace...

I always love doing make up for fashion shows, they are so much fun. I recently had the opportunity to work with the talented designer Danielle Kelly of DK75Raw. Danielle Kelly launched her design career in 2003 with Von Dutch. She was hired by former Head Designer, Christian Audigier, currently the mastermind behind Ed Hardy. Danielle modified their world famous T’s into one of a kind, hand cut and woven, original creations.

Check out some behind the scenes pics from the show produced by Vindictive Nights. Shout out to David & John for making it a great night!

L.A. Confidential........catches up with us!

Be sure to pick up your copy of L.A. Confidential this month with Matthew Mcconaughey on the cover. It seems they have a picture of my husband, Manuel Jackson, and I out on the town. We were actually attending an event to celebrate Frey Wille's latest collection "Ode to Joy of Life". It was at their flagship store in Santa Monica.

Check us out on page 76....

Krys Ivory is here...

I had the pleasure of working with hot new recording artist, Krys Ivory, yesterday in Downtown LA. She came in as a model, but before she left we were bumping her new track with Ryan Leslie called "Next 2 U".

Take a listen...

Stay tuned for shots from our editorial photo shoot with her, Tiffani Sade' on hair, and Marybeth Sales on wardrobe. We had such a blast! She had to tweet about my make up being so BOMB...thanks Krys!

The Bachelorette......on ABC

Yaaay, so The Bachelorette has finally aired, and only 2 of the guys I worked with went home!!

I was lucky enough to be the make up artist/groomer for the rose ceremony, and 12 of the eligible bachelors chosen to try and win the heart of Ms. Jillian Harris this season. I had so much fun getting to know each of them, and Sasha actually went to the same elementary school as me--not to mention we know some of the same people from Houston. You know I am rooting for him, as well as Jake, Simon, Mathue, and Wes. All of them are very genuine guys, television or not. Good luck to all of you, and may the best man win!

Catch the show on Monday 8/7c

Chanta Patton changes courses....

I'm sure you've seen her in just about every music video from an Interscope artist this past year alone, and keep looking because she's doing a whole lot more....Ms. Chanta Patton enlisted the services of myself and my fabulous team to give her one editorial shoot she won't forget.

The incredible mind of well known photographer Derek Caballero, gave the term "heroin" a new meaning. We were going for a real strong, feminine biker warrior---and I believe we pulled it off! The team worked really hard, so thanks to Tiffani Sade' on hair and Marybeth Sales on the guys rock!

Check out this behind the scenes shot, and the video of the actual shoot shot by Sky Bermudas, with interviews, and make up tips soon to come...

Portfolio Spring Cleaning.....

Yesterday's shoot with photographer CW Jacobs was so amazing! Here's a sneak peek of what's to come as I revamp my book this summer. I am in love with this fresh, clean beauty look that I like to do, incorporating splashes of color and creativity. Shout out to the team once again for all their hard work...Rai Bonner on hair, Maria Bernaldez as the model, and Isaac Tjaja on the wardrobe. Stay tuned for more... (p.s. these photos are unretouched)

Creating ART is always good for the HEART. Use your gifts while living for your passion, and the blessings will come!

*Not to sound vain....but image IS everything!!*
