I had a great time shooting with my friend photographer Nigel. And, HELLO, did you take a look at the Mercura Sunglasses? They are super dope. I love every one of them. So here are some behind the scenes pics I took, just wanted to share with you guys.
I prep the model first by toning her face and moisturizing it. She did not need much coverage, I just used a tiny bit of cream foundation and mixed it with a little bit of water.
Sometimes I make my own lipsticks colors. It's 1,2,3 simple! Just mixed lip gloss+eyeshadow or different shades of lipsticks.

Welcome to my Q&A corner. This column is dedicated solemnly to you. Here I will answer all of your questions and requests. Let's begin!
Q: Hi I found your blog through your chictopia, great clothes btw and your make up website is amazing, very talented. I love statement lips too but for some reason they just don’t seem to look right on me. I recently bought Nars Jungle Red as I’m mad about poppy red it’s gorgeous but I feel something’s not right with it, I’m dark skinned (African) like a Jourdan Dunn type colour so brights normally suit me in clothes but this looks a bit off my mum said I look like something from the black and white minstrel show, HELP!! Please could you recommend some bright colours that wouldn’t have this effect or do you think it could be the way I apply it, I don’t use lip liner because I don’t know how etc etc please help.. thank you .. sorry i wasn’t too sure where to post this.
Thank you girl!
Leave the black and white minstrel show days behind, the secret in choosing a red lip color that will compliment your skin complexion is in the…… are you ready for this….. is in the undertones Everybody can wear red lipstick you just need to find which undertone works best for you!

Red lips are in and are here to stay. Christina Aguilera teams hers with a classic black eyeliner, Mary Kate pairs hers with smokey eyes to keep it edgy, Rihanna rocks them with her dewy skin and a pair of sunglasses. What are you waiting for? Put your red lips on and make a statement!

I enjoy viewing other artists’ work and watch them do their magic, it’s always a source of big inspiration and motivation. I wanted to share this Bobbi Brown video with you. It shows a behind the scenes look at what happens during the making of keying a runway show. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
