Some of my toys...

I recently had the opportunity to meet Troy Jensen at the LA makeup show. This guy is so inspiring and encouraging. He has been a celebrity makeup artist for years and has so much wisdom and real deal experiences to share. I love being inspired!

The classic dark smoky eye is one of my favorite looks. Especially when it is on a clean subtle face and the eyes get a chance to pop. There is something sultry and mysterious about it. I was playing around with some new shadows and it resulted in this! The best way to keep the shadows from getting to messy is to start with the lighter colors and work your way into the deeper ones. When it comes to black shadows it's always best to start with a small amount. Remember you can always add but its a huge mess when you try to take some away!
