|Using Creamy Glow in Pravella on Carrie Keagan of VH1|
If you're a makeup artist or just always dreamed of being one, chances are you have one (or ALL!) of his genius makeup books... but do you have his beauty products? If the answer is no, you should take a field trip to your local Sephora or select department stores and change that. Seriously, I'm loving the Celestial Bronzing Veil in Tropical Days and Nights, The Creamy Glow in Pravella (but all colors are worth getting!) and of course the Sensual Concealer... yes, even foundation can be sexy!
Thank you Kevyn Aucoin for being an inspirational artist and for being brave enough to chase your dreams and pave the way for other artists in pursuit of their bliss. His legacy and exquisite work live on as his beauty brand continues to inspire and equip makeup mavens around the world.
Thank you to Kaci and Viviana at Kevyn Aucoin Beauty for such a generous gift! I am now a forever fan... the products are luxurious, great pigment & staying power... not to mention my favorite color is red, so I'm in love with the luxe packaging!

It was a great honor to be featured in one of Hawaii's finest magazines; Modern Luxury Hawaii. When I was contacted by the Editor to be apart of the upcoming issue, I was so excited, I had always wanted to do makeup for this magazine. Little did I know, it wasn't behind the scenes work I would be doing, but rather, this would be my first interview and full page story for my work as a Hair and Makeup Artist.
Music and dancing were an inevitable part of the shoot as photographer, Linny Morris
worked her magic behind the camera lens; I was having the time of my life. How wonderful to have the opportunity to share your passion with the world... and at the same time, get all dolled up for a photo shoot. Two of my favorite things!
I remember being 9 years old, waiting for my Mom to finish her grocery shopping, while Elle and Marie Claire babysat me for hours in the magazine aisle :-) The words, "I can do that!" ran through my head as I sat completely enthralled by the world of Fashion and Beauty. I studied those magazines and the faces who graced the cover and became fully convinced that I would have no problem one day doing makeup on these women... afterall, it looked so easy! Well, isn't that cute, a little 9 year old without a doubt in the world.
Those memories, I often visit... and it always brings a smile to my face, and to my heart. I did it. I lived out my childhood dream! I'm a makeup artist!! I have yet to do the cover of Elle and Marie Claire, (although my work has been featured in Marie Claire!) but I've done dozens upon dozens of covers; international, national, and local.
It's been a long while since those freeze-your-butt-off-from-sitting-on-the-cold-Stater Brother-Floor-while-reading-Elle Days.... but I am still transfixed by the art of creating beauty. And I am so thankful, that God placed that dream in this young girls heart, and then gave her the courage to go and live it.
Live the life you love...
YOU are the only one who can.
