I haven't worn makeup for 2 weeks! ahhhh

I've been doing a new diet, its called the HCG Homeopathic diet, ever heard of it? I am on day 16 yay!  Lost 14lbs so far! This diet is seriously the hardest thing I have ever done! Not only is it so strict with what you eat, you also cannot wear any makeup that has any kind of oil in it. So instead of going out and buying all new makeup I decided I will just go without! ahhh, its been really hard but losing weight means so much more to me! So once I am all done with this phase of the diet I will move onto the next phase and that yummy makeup will be coming back to mama!! ANNNND I have some tutorials I am planning for you guys! So so sorry I have been away for a long time...I will be back soon. =)

Is there any makeup questions you might have? I am working on a post about how to find good makeup for a good price...that will be coming soon.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial day today!!!!

Rocker girl

Yesterday, my hairstylist and good friend wanted to do a photoshoot and asked me to do her makeup! It was so much fun working with a friend! Plus, she has beautiful skin and features and putting makeup on her was so much fun! I decided to do more of a smoky dark look. The colors reminded me of peacock feathers. The colors I used were teal, turquoise, dark green, lime green, rusty reddish brown, gold, and a white with gold shimmers. Here is a sneak peak to the shoot....

As soon as I get more pictures I will post more! In this one you can't really tell the eyeshadow, but doesn't she look gorgeous?! 

What are your favorite eyeshadow colors to play with? I was really loving these colors and will have to try them out on myself! 

Loves, Leah

1920's Flapper Girl and Sexy Pin-up girl photoshoot!

My hubby happens to be a photographer with a studio and I just did my very first shoot acouple weeks ago, but just now getting to blog about it!! Check him out here =) It was alot of fun working with him and the two hairstylists as well. Everytime I do makeup for someone (and this being my first shoot) I learn new things about myself, where I need to improve, how to be more organized and more efficient on time, that sort of thing. I feel so lucky to be able to practice in my hubby's studio. I think we will have to do this more often!

There were two models, very pretty and the sweetest girls ever! I had alot of fun getting to know them! For one of the model's she was going for more of a 1920's flapper girl look. So I did some research online about the 1920's and learned  that they used alot of pan makeup and soot and coal. So for the eyes I wanted to do something very dark, blacks blues and greens with pencil thin eyebrows. The lips I wanted to do more of a darker shade of raspberry with a cupids bow. The cheeks I wanted to do something with a touch of red maybe a little bit of raspberry.

Here are some inspirations I found online ( I just googled 1920's flapper girl)

Here are some pictures from the shoot! The 1920's look!

For the pin-up girl look I wanted do a more glamorous and old Hollywood/ Marilyn Monroe look. If you look at the pin-up girls they really didn't wear a whole lot of makeup, it was very clean and classic. So here are a few inspirations that I found. I wanted to definitely play up the eyeliner and do a dark lip. 

Here is the pin-up girl look I did!

There are more pictures, but I will have to get more from Mr. Hubby Photographer =) 
I had such a fun time, I hope to do more photoshoots in the future!! 
I am thinking about doing some tutorials on how I did each of these looks, any thoughts?

Hope everyone has a fantastic day!!
