It’s been a year of revision of priorities. Instead of working on 15 beginner models, I’ve been working on a few select faces.

It’s been a crazy two months, between working my ass off for the holidays and changes at work, I haven’t really had time to make any new “Makeup-On-A-Model” posts. To be honest, my mind was a huge blank. But I’m back with a lot of help from a makeup friend. Continue reading
