Loved this look on Vivica Fox's character Cassandra for her date with Marcus, actor Bill Bellamy, on their show Mr. Box Office.
Remember ladies, less is more, especially with a red lip! Keeping the eyes neutral, I lined her lip with YSL pencil #13 and used YSL Rouge Pur Couture #1:)

|Vivica Fox & Lucy Kilislian|
Vivica and Lucy both wanted a smokey eye look, and I did them both differently. Here's a breakdown of Vivica's smokey eye. First I prep her skin with Murad Skin Perfecting Primer. I then fill her eye brows in with MAC Spiked Eyebrow Pencil and I highlight her brow with MAC Concealer in NC45. I use MAC Bamboo Paint on her lid for an eye shadow base, then I apply colors from the Smashbox Smokebox II Palette....blending the darkest color in the crease. I add #523 lashes for a more dramatic effect, black liquid liner on the lid and Stila's Black Kajal liner in her waterline.
Her skin is then highlighted with Koh Gen Do foundation in #301 and contoured in Koh Gen Do foundation #302. I then set her foundation with NARS pressed powder in Tahoe and New Orleans. Her blush is MAC Peaches, and her lip is YSL #4 Rouge Volupte and Milani "Puttin on the Ritz" lipgloss for a nude shine. Good luck! xo

Spring is here and LOVE is in the air!!! Many women are overwhelmed with the planning of their wedding day....quite possibly the biggest event of their lives. The search for the perfect dress, the perfect venue, the perfect food, the perfect invitations, and more. The last thing a bride is thinking about is how to make sure her face is perfect too. This is where I come in! It is my job to make sure the bride doesn't have to think about her face, and that she feels absolutely beautiful on her special day. Once the make up is on, she shouldn't feel it and it shouldn't come off easily. The goal is to be simple and pretty, but have a look with staying power since the same make up is worn for an entire day, sometimes into the night. Here are a few examples of simple wedding day beauty. These looks can be worn on the bride as well as her bridesmaids.
If you're thinking of having your make up done for your wedding day, you definitely should. Make sure you choose someone you trust, and you do a trial run with them so you can see what works for you and what doesn't way before the big day. This is NOT a time to be experimenting with your face. Get a facial four days before to clear your skin of any imperfections, and make sure you get your eyebrows done. Choose the type of make up look that is natural so regardless of your wedding colors, your face will glow. Also, make sure to still look like you when you come down the aisle so your man can recognize you...especially if you're not a make up wearer normally. Lol! Good luck:) xo

Simone Smith and her husband LL Cool J attended the NAACP Image Awards, make up and grooming done by me. Let me just say that they are like the Cosby's of hip hop. Their values, their work ethic and the way they raise their kids give me the utmost respect for them. It's an honor for me to call them clients and friends. Her husband also won an NAACP Award that night for his role on NCIS. Congrats LL!! Check them out on the red carpet.
|Simone here, no face make up on...she just gets her eyes done. Such a natural beauty|
I'm very thankful for my clients Simone Smith and Queen Latifah for keeping me busy over Grammy weekend. They both had a lot of events to attend, and they both looked amazing on the red carpet.
I found this display set up at Ebony Wig Mart on Crenshaw and Rodeo in Los Angeles. I'm sure they offer these products at most beauty supplies if not online, but online you can't try the color out before you purchase it. I will do a full face with the entire line and post the pics and exactly what I used very soon!
