This weekend's face painting

I had the pleasure of painting about 35 guests in 2 hours at a local party and let me tell you it was a doozy. I was painting from 4pm to 6pm and with the time change it now gets dark around 5pm so they brought out lights and at one point a circuit broke and ALL of the power went out so, I was painting by the light of an ipad LOL!!
It also happened to be the day of the infamous USC/UCLA football game and as you can see there were a few USC fans.

 Here are some pics from the day.....

Zombie makeup for Halloween

Here is my Zombie boy. He has asked me every year if he could be a Zombie and now that his siblings are old enough not to be scared out of their wits I said o.k. This is what we came up with. It is a combination of makeup and face paint, latex and fake blood. This was very fun and gross to work on. I hope it inspires the artist in you. If your not into gore check out my simple, less scary Halloween looks for boys here.

Love and grossness,

Video from Laura Kranitz Photo Shoot

Here is a quick video from a photo shoot I worked on for Designer Laura Kranitz shot by Lew Abramson.
The look she wanted was natural and American Apparel inspired makeup. Her accessories are amazing and fabulous! I hope you enjoy this little vid.
 Love and bling,

Prenatal baby bumps

I think my favorite of all things to paint has got to be baby bumps. It reminds me of my own babies and how incredible it was to feel them moving inside of me...the rest of the experience was less fantastic ; ) but, still incredible.
 I've had the opportunity to paint a couple of bellies and here is the latest one...

 This was my first Sparrow and I think it turned out great. What do you think? I can't wait for my next one.
Love and baby bumps,

Sugar skull or Dia de Los Muertos makeup

Last year my very first face painting job was a Sugar Skull or Calaca which I have to say although I knew I could do it, I still had butterflies in my stomach and was nervous to try something new. This year however, I am very comfortable and confident in my skills and was excited to paint a few for Sugar Skulls for Dia de Los Muertos. I belong to lovely community of makeup artists and face painters and have drawn inspiration from my colleagues and hope you will be able to take inspiration from these.
Here are a few of the Dia de Los Muertos makeup jobs I had including one self portrait or painting LOL.
Love & Sugar Skulls,
