Im so excited to share that I got over 50,000 views on my Acne Coverage Video! I've struggled with adult acne for years and I wanted to share how I use makeup to cover my scars while trying to remove them. Showing my bare face on camera was one of the hardest things I had to do. Those who suffer from bad skin knows it can lead to insecurity and have bad feelings towards your self. I just want to say that taking a leap of faith and conquering my fears lead to my success. Don't be afraid to do what ever it is that you want to do. The universe will bless you in the most unexpected ways. I hope I gave you a little bit of inspiration to be fearless! Thanks for reading.
Peace & Blessings to you all. ?
I had the wonderful opportuntiy to do a test shoot with nyc photographer Luis Gonzalezporto and agency model Xenia Oche from Russia. The mood was Lazy Saturday kinda vibe and I love how the images turned out. Here are some behind the scene photos/ video and final images. I will list the products that I used on the model below.
For Look 1 we went for a very natural look. Here are the products listed below.
Foundation: Loreal True Match Warm 2
Concealor: Loreal True Match cool & warm mixed
Setting Powder: Elf Cosmetics Translucent Powder
Brows: Mac Cosmetics Lingering
Eyeshadow: Lid Chopper Urban Decay Naked 2
Crease: Naked Naked 1
Illuminator: Mac Cosmetics-Shell
Blush; Pink tone blush (sorry no name)
Bronzer: Mac Cosmetics Mineral Skin Finish Powder in Medium
Lips: NYX Lip Butter Eclaire
For Look 2 I added a slightly smokey eye using Naked 2 pallete added lashes and added more highlight from the Anastasia Bevelry Hills Glow Kit for a more dramatic look.
Eyes: I used the last 3 colors on the Naked 2 pallete.
Check out my tutorial on how to get full coverage for acne scarring/hyperpigmentation. I started wearing foundation makeup in my teens because I started getting acne with horrible scarring. So if you have acne prone skin and want to learn how to cover scaring while healing your skin, watch my video below.
I had the opportunity to provide hair/makeup services for a corporate training video. I traveled to Boston for this 3 day shoot and I absolutely loved it! This was my first time doing to a production shoot that was unscripted and without professional actors. All the individuals involved are decision makers within this company's corporate office. Boston is a beautiful city and I hope to travel back soon for more work.
This look is my favorite everyday beauty makeup. I love a slight Rose gold (Chopper) eyeshadow on the lids followed by a red brown eyeshadow mixed with a light brown in the crease. I added black eyeliner and Ardell natural Demi lashes. I love Nyx butter glosses. This one is Madeleine.
I hope you like this look. Comment below if you want more details!
Peace & Love 😍✌️

I love Facials and Do-It-Yourself Clay Mask recipes! Adding a clay mask once a week to my skin care regimin has helped reduce acne breakouts and helped keep my oily T-zone balanced.
I chose Fuller's Earth Clay. It's the best clay for oily skin because it absorbs oil, dirt and
impurities from your pores. Fuller's Clay has amazing skin lightening properties, which is very beneficial to help reduce acne hyper pigmentation (acne dark spots). Here is a very simple do it yourself recipe to renew your skin.
• Fuller's Clay Mask
• 1 Tbsp. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
• 1 Tbsp. Water
• Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil
1. Mix Clay, Water and Apple Cider Vinegar
2. Add 1 drop of Tea Tree essential oil
3. Apply to clean dry skin with fingers or brush
4. Let dry for 15 min
* Add more water if ACV burns your skin.
* Texture should be smooth like pudding
I hope you enjoy this simple DIY clay mask and thanks for reading!
Peace and Love ✌️
