Fan Recreations of my looks

I am so blessed to have such an amazing following in youtube and before in myspace ( I dont check myspace anymore sorry) I started posting up my pictures in myspace just for fun. I really didn't think anybody would be interested in my way of expressing myself. I was very surprised when i reached 1,000 subscribers on youtube and now I have more that 10,000! I have no words to express how grateful I feel that anybody would be interested in me. I have some amazing fans and viewers and I just wanted to share some pictures I had stored in my computer from a couple of years back. Two girls sent me these pictures of recreations of looks ive done in the past. Again it blows my mind that somebody would like my designs so much that would take time to do them. I have many more pictures of fan work but I can't seem to track them down right now. I am sorry but since it was so long ago I can't seem to remember the names of these lovley ladies! If this is you please email me!!! makeupartist_liz@yahoo.com

Beautiful job ladies!!! and again thank you!!!

WHA!?! Paper EYELASHES?! :)

Yes! you heard right! PAPER eyelashes! I first found out about them through Beautylish's website and I was completely blown away!

Paperself launched them and have 11 designs very intricately cut (my favorites are the peacock ones) They are out of this world! I am dying to have at least one pair of them! They are inspired by the art of Chinesse paper cutting and the amount of detail in these babies are amazing! I seriouly think these are going to be very trendy when they get discovered and who woudn't want to rock a pair!! They are also not very expensive... well I think! for the amount of work they look they would be to make... you can find them here. I can't wait to order me a pair and do a full review! I just had to tell you guys about them!!! Also I tried making some and it was a complete and total FAIL! ill just leave the intricate cuting to the pros! What do you guys think of these? would you wear them or not? and also what type of designs would you like to see in the future? Till then Ill just leave you with these amazing photos! Enjoy!

Can you do your makeup in 5 minutes?

Can you do your makeup in 5 minutes?...I can! There has been this tag on youtube for a while now challenging makeup gurus to do their makeup from start to finish in 5 minutes! yes I said 5!!! I though it was impossible to do but today as I was running late and had to leave the house in 10 min. I decided that it was the best time to try this out. I was very skeptical because I usually do my everyday makeup in 20 minutes. I wanted to challenge myself a little further and decided to do a pin up look. Yes winged liner and bold red lips! The process was a little messy and my eyebrows were a little un even but I think I did pretty good. See for yourself... I also have all the products I used in this video along with an after photo!

*Makeup for ever Full cover foundation #7

*Maybelline FIT ME pressed powder in #230

Makeup and hair for recording artist LOLENE at Fred Segal Salon 05/18/10

Hi Guys!
Today I had an eventfull day with celebrity makeup artist Sharon Gault aka "Mama Makeup" http://www.opusbeauty.com/p/sharongault.
We did the makeup for recording artist Lolene ( http://lolenemusic.com/ )for an awards ceremony in Hollywood, CA. at the Fred Segal Salon in Beverly Hills CA. Lolene came fresh faced and ready to get glammed up by Sharon, me and amazing hairstylist Sean James( http://seanjamesbeauty.blogspot.com/ ). She loves dewy glowing skin, flirty eyelashes and pretty pink lips and thats what we gave her. For her hair she wanted a high curly long ponitail but last min. decided a sleek high bun was more glamorous for an awards ceremony. By the time we finished she looked amazing glowing from head to toe and ready to shine in the red red carpet. I took notes of everything me and Sharon used on her if you want to re-create the look. I will soon be uploading the face chart and the final media picture of her and her gown in the red carpet. For now here's the list of everything we used and a "After" picture of Lolene!
