Goodbye 2013

It's time to say goodbye to 2013.  Here's to an awesome year of learning for me in my personal life as well as my professional life. I am so thankful to all of you for supporting me throughout this year and all that it has brought. I took some time off in the beginning of the year to grieve the loss of my Grandma Judy. I didn't know that it would hit me as hard as it did. I guess you can never be ready for it and it happens when it happens. I learned to put GOD first in my life above all else. once I did that everything else began falling into place. I was given the opportunity to teach a class on FabaTV this year which had it been given to me last year I would not have been ready for. It proves that GOD's timing is always perfect.

 I am so grateful for every opportunity that comes my way.I only hope to inspire the inner artist in all of you with everything that I do. I have had a few people unhappy with my decision to share the art of face painting with everyone via my Youtube tutorials . I guess they would be called haters. Who knew one day I would have people upset with me for sharing. Honestly, life is way too short not to share all that we have with one another. We are not promised tomorrow. So, no matter what anyone says, I will continue to share my creations with you. I only hope to bless others as I am so blessed by all of you! If GOD blesses you with a gift then, you must bless HIM and others with it.

Thank you for sharing 2013 with me. Here's to a prosperous and beautifully creative 2014!

FOTD Frozen face paint design

Today's FOTD is inspired by a combination of Christmas movies. It's a little bit of Jack Frost from the movie The Rise of the Guardians , A little bit of the The White Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia and a little bit of Elsa from Frozen.

I am very inspired by Disney movies when it comes to face painting and this design is no exception. I really love Christmas and winter painting. I hope you are inspired to create your own Frozen design from this.

I used Fab Glitter White and Metal, Paradise brilliant Azure, Wolfe White, Swarovski crustals, Ben Nye lumieres in Ice, Cosmic Violet, Silver and Cosmic Blue.

FOTD Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer

I have painted a sleeker, perhaps even sexier Reindeer Face painting design or makeup design for the classic Rudolf the Red nosed Reindeer lol! I couldn't help it. Sometimes my designs simply just create themselves and this is a perfect example of that.

This can of course be modified to a more masculine or boy like design but I painted it on myself so it came out more feminine. I hope you can draw inspiration from it to create your own fabulous reindeer face painting design from it.

I used Ben Nye lumiere white, Starblend White, Wolfe skin Palette, Orange and black.

FOTD Santa Claus face painting

 HO HO HO!! I'm Santa Mom. LOL I went to pick my kiddos up from school like this today and my kids were so embarrassed. I think it was all in good fun. They are probably scarred for life.
 I told my son that from now on when he's naughty I am going to paint my face and pick him up from school. I'm pretty sure he'll be on his best behavior now. Hey, whatever works :)

Here are a few pics for your Christmas face painting inspiration.
I used Wolfe White, Red and Black. Diamond FX metallic white. Fab Metal. Starblend black

FOTD Swirl Sugar Skull

About 2 months ago I painted this sugar skull on myself. The response from everyone was so awesome. I wasn't expecting it at all in fact, Heather Banks from Sillyfarm noticed it and asked if she could use it on the website for the month of October. Of course I said yes, what an honor it is for the CEO of the largest Face Paint supply website in the United States to notice your work.

 I love clicking over there and seeing my face there. When I'm feeling insecure about my work I will save this image and look back at it. I don't think I'll ever feel like my work is that great. I always feel as if there is so much more to learn. If I ever stop learning it will be time to leave this business.

 Anyway I do hope you enjoy this Sugar skull or Calavera. I used the Ben Nye lumieres palette, Wolfe White and Deep Raspberry, Starblend black and White and Mehron Celebre pro foundation.

FOTD Venetian style Peacock mask

Every year around this time of year I begin to get flooded with private appointments for Halloween parties and this year was no exception. A look or design that is highly requested every year is a peacock mask. I decided to buckle down and work this design out.

 I pulled out my sequins and gold powder to create this combination of metal and bling. Ben Nye lumieres were used for the base colors and eyes hadows.

I practice on myself rather than a practice head because I like the feel of skin lol! Here are a few selfies taken with my cell phone. I hope you are able to draw inspiration from this design and create something all your own.

Happy Halloween Appointments,

My little Dolphin mask

I have tried dolphin design after dolphin design and was never truly happy with them. I always felt like it was unfinished or the proportions were all wrong until now. I have been painting this design  at parties for a while now and finally I feel happy with it.  I hope you enjoy it too. I posted this  dolphin face painting design on my facebook page and received so many likes I knew I needed to share it with you all.

I used FAB Ocean shimmer and TAG pearl blue for the base with a custom dolphin splitcake for the Dolphins.

Happy Painting,

Unicorn face painting

As a face painter one of the most beloved designs is the Unicorn. It's mystical and magical. Everything that face painting is to a child so, I have tried and tried to master it but, was never quite happy with my design. I decided instead of looking only at other face painters designs for inspiration it was time to look the horse in the face so to speak and model my Unicorn after an actual horse.
That was all I needed to realize what I needed to do to make it work. I sketched a design in my sketchbook and found a model and this is what I came up with. I'm really happy with her.
 Sometimes our best source of reference is nature itself.

What do you think?

Covergirl Stay Fabulous Outlast 3 in 1 foundation Review

This foundation is a 4 star foundation.
*It lasts and lasts all day
*Is a medium to full coverage
*Dries to a powder like finish without the powdery look
*Blends great with a beauty blender or fingers
*Moderate range of colors

I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for the pinky undertones and if it blended easier with a brush. Other than that this is a fantastic foundation that I will purchase again and again.

Monkey face painting tutorial

So many have requested a boys face painting design from me so, I have been thinking and thinking about it and thought I would try to give you some designs that children often ask for but always seems to stump the artist.
 The first of these for me was a Monkey design. So many monkey face painting designs are scary looking so I thought I would try to come up a family friends party  design for you. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and if you have any requests please leave them here on my blog.

Happy Painting,

FOTD Stargazing Lily Face Painting

This morning I had a last minute cancellation so, I had the opportunity to get my paint on! I have been wanting to face paint a Stargazing Lily mask for sometime and hadn't quite figured out how I was going to do it so, today was my chance to sit down a figure it out.

 The eye makeup part was the easiest but, maybe that's because of my makeup artist background. I have to say I'm pretty happy with the results. What do you think?

I used a custom rose splitcake and leaf cake. Ben Nye Lumiere eyeshadows and Wolfe Black and White for the details.

What's in my Makeup bag

As a Makeup artist it is very hard to try and narrow down what I keep in my makeup bag so I will just share with you what are my must have's or go to products.....

#1. Concealer. I Use Maybelline Age Rewind under eye concealer in Medium. It has been a very long time since I've raved about a concealer but, this one is fab! Not only does in conceal very nicely but it doesn't emphasize my lines....Hello Bonus!

#2. Foundation. Every woman needs a great everyday foundation and I keep going back to my old stand by True Match Blendable foundation in W4 from L'Oreal. I have tried a numerous amount of foundations but, this one is just beautiful and buildable yet, feels ultra lightweight.

#3. Powder. Laura Geller balance N brighten in Medium. I tried this in a small kit and ended up buying the larger size. It is a great powder foundation. Used alone it gives a nice sheer to medium coverage. used with foundation it gives a beautiful flawless finish. I keep it in my purse to touch up once a day. (Warning) the colors run a bit light. I wish there were more colors and I do wish they were a tad bit warmer. So, if you tend to have a bit more yellow in your skin or are a medium to dark or darker skintone this may not be right for you instead try Mac Mineralize skinfinsh natural.

#4. Bronzer. Mac Matte bronze. This has been my old stand by for a while now. I found a better bronzer from Too faced but, alas I was allergic to it. I was so sad because it was matte and the color was amazing. So instead I'm back using the Matt Bronze from Mac.

#5. Blush. This truely varies from day to day much like lipstick and eyeshadow however, My favorite blushes are Rose D'Oro from Milani it's a gorgeous warm and cool shimmery rose/ bronze color. Desire from Lorac..Oh this color is just an amazing cool shimmery pink. I can pop this on top of ANY other color and it just creates a beautiful glow from within look. Love this!

#6. Eyebrows. I have used LaFemme Medium brown eyebrow powder for over 15 years now and I still love it.

#7 Eyeshadow. a friend of mine introduced me to Lorac Serenity eyeshadow years ago and today it is still my favorite. It is a  nude shimmer. It can be used wet or dry for a beautiful dewy look on the eyes. Just gorgeous especially when there is no time for a full on smokey look.

#8. Eyeliner. I have tried many eyeliners over the years but  lately I have been picking up Physicians formula shimmer liquid eyeliners daily. I use the black one almost daily. It really does stay all day.

#9. Eyelashes. I would not be who I am without my trusty Shu Uemura eyelash curler. I have cow lashes (thye go straight down not straight out but, down) so, without this tool my looks would never be complete. I have also been enjoying the Rocket Mascara from Maybelline although my all time favorite is my Yves St. Laurent Volume effect Faux Cils.

#10 Lips. I love the pro longwear lip pencils from Mac paired with my favorite Color design lipsticks from Lancome. I am still looking for a replacement for my Shu Uemura 132 lipstick. I loved that thing to death. It was shear goodness in a Coraly shimmery way.
