Moden Collabs

Hiya #Mavenz,

Making up for lost time... A blog a day is no joke.

I love working with different people. I'm always surprised when they know my work or compliment it. 

I perceive myself to be a minimalist; that aesthetic where makeup is concerned is not greatly treasured locally. The heavier the makeup the better, for most.

Enhancement is my love. However, I absolutely love some of the transformations I see on Instagram and Facebook. Before & after photos are my faves. Especially if the after is soft and pretty, not overdone, harsh or cakey. 

So when Larry Mayers asked me almost two years ago if we could do a shoot together I was super excited. Anderson, told me he was a superb artist highly skilled in photography and he has worked with some of the best in the business.

From Renee Ifill to Kamilah Codrington, Larry has had them onboard as the MUA's and made magic.

So one early Sunday morning, 2 years after our initial conversation (lol). We finally got it together. Larry brought Melanie to me to have her face #modenized lol. I was floored, she has fascinating bone structure, poreless, even skin and a sparkling personality in one.

We did a nude eye with glam lashes and a Milani 'Best Red' lip. Contoured the hell outta her sweet cheeks, and added a rich, golden highlight.

Here is a sneak peek:

I'll post face shots when I can.

#Anti-Haul | My Brand Blacklist

In keeping with the Brand Awareness series, I was planning to do a Beauty Brands Drama series and discuss just that. The idea was scrapped cause really, I like to laugh and ting at dem tings but they don't truly matter in the grand scheme of life. What does matter though is that we be smart consumers. Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.

By all means, spend your money how you want. Like whichever brand you choose. Rep whomever influencer you "love". This is just my 10¢.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics

I bought one of his liquid lipsticks; I wore it once and then I threw it away (I didn't like the scent). Yuh see, I actually believe that this man is just an entertainer. He likes to say things for shock value. He likes the limelight...loves the attention. What he actually believes? I don't know if we'll ever really know. What I know fuh sure though is that he ain't tu…
