It is December and 2006 is almost here. November wasn't a good month for me. Most of the month was spent in Missouri, trying to help my uncle who had a stroke. After the stroke, he wasn't able to talk, eat or move around. We hoped his body would get stronger, but instead he got gangrene and died this month. Many of you have emailed me warm thoughts and condolances....thank you! Your support has helped more than you know.

Since I wasn't able to do much, I have decided to just post images from some of the looks that I created during my makeup artist classes that I teach through out the year. I hope you enjoy them!

The colors I used were from Victoria Secret Beauty. I used the Mosaic Spice on eyes and cheeks and finished her lips in a nude shade to look sophisticated yet natural.

This cool swimsuit shot was taken at my makeup workshop in Elizabeth New Jersey. There was a beat up elevator that had so much character, that we just had to do something with it and this is what we came up with.

I used Black Opal cosmetics on her face, and the yellow makeup is by Mehron.

(model-Nataliyah, phtg-W. Sclesky, makeup/hair-Candace Corey)

This shot is on my web page, but many don't know that it was created at one of my makeup workshops last year, in Elizabeth New Jersey. When I saw Nataliyah, she reminded me of Paulina Porizkova so I wanted to do something interesting so I used some color pigments to create the look that you see here. The color pigments are by Ben Nye.

I hope you enjoyed some of my past work. Starting in January 2006, I am going to answering a monthly beauty question. So if you have a beauty question that you would like answered just send it to me by going to my beauty questionaire link. See you next month!
