On set for IBM Inventor filming

I had so much fun yesterday being the Makeup Artist on set for eFilms Media and IBM.  I can honestly say that when I go to “work” it doesn’t at all feel like work.  This is my passion and I have fun no matter what.  It makes me feel good when I can connect with my clients and bring out their confidence.  I hope to work on many more sets very soon!

Here’s a bit of what my day looked like :

Product review! Rusk Deepshine Color Shampoo!

So I’ve been using Rusk’s Deepshine® Color Hydrate Sulfate-Free Shampoo that I picked up last week at my local Armstrong McCall Beauty Professional Store.  I have noticed a huge overall improvement on my hair.  Prior to this I had been using Sebastian’s Penetraitt Shampoo.  I still use the conditioner since this shampoo was just a “trial” for me and I think it’s turned me!!! 🙂  I’m going to have to go back and buy liters in both the shampoo and conditioner. I was shopping for a new shampoo simply because my hair had become more dry than usual.  My ends felt very brittle and split ends were easily making themselves appear.  Since I color my hair just about every 2 weeks I needed something that was going to help with color retention, strength, and frizz.  It’s very humid in Texas! I’ve noticed a reduced amount of frizz with this product. The amount of tangles I normally have in my hair have reduced as well.  My scalp also gets less oily with this.  An added bonus always is the scent!  It smells wonderful!!!!

Birthday makeover!

My cousin wanted professional hair & makeup for her family picture session over the weekend. Who better to get than yours truly, your own, Vixen Charm! I gave her a custom airbrush foundation finish with custom airbrush blush and complementary eye & face colors with medium lashes to complete her look. Her hair was styled with loose curls that were held with high quality styling products and a high gloss shine to finish the look. Check out the before and after. I can’t wait to see her family pics!!
