Koh Gen Do at Sephora...

Most of you know that gorgeous skin is my thing, and Koh Gen Do has amazing foundations and powders. If you're in LA, join me this Sunday as I share my celeb beauty tips using Koh Gen Do.

The Smith's step out..

Dolled up the beautiful Simone Smith for a night out with her husband LL Cool J. I love catching them on the red carpet...they rock!

Snapshot Sundays...

I am starting a new beauty day for my friends and followers. It's going to be called "Snapshot Sundays"....for those moments when I get someone glammed up and photo ready with different make up looks. I  will show you the before and after pictures of the model, and explain to you what I did in detail in hopes that you can create the look at home. I am super excited about this "Less Is More" natural beauty movement...please let me know what make up looks you'd like to see.

Here's a snapshot of super fab host and DJ, DJay DaQueen, on her way to an MTV Movie Awards event.

Vivica Fox...Sweet As Candy

I recently dolled up the beautiful Vivica Fox for the Fire & Ice Gala hosted by one of her best friends, jewelry designer, Lucy Kilislian. The event was to showcase Lucy's fabulous Candy Ice collection and the proceeds benefited Fresh2O.

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
