Pictures from the darkside

There are the locks of blackness.. just as I promised. I was actually taking a picture of me with my fiancee, Steve, and he accidentally was cut from this photo. =( But anyway, I took my hair from platinum blonde streaks and burgundy hair to this black velvet, Priscilla & Elvis wedding hair.

Priscilla and Elvis

Yeah.. she was my inspiration for this hair color and after looking at my split ends and damage, I figured it was time to put some life back into my hair. I did not use permanent dye, ohh no! The last time I used permanent black dye, my hair came out more damaged than I started out with. I used Natural Instincts by Clairol with very good results. I’ve used this dye before and really love how it conditions your hair.

Luscious, lovely.. OMG. My best friend Kat and I crawled away from the kids for a moment to lavish ourselves in… Continue Reading

Smokey eye fans will love Summer 2009

I was checking out the MAC artists page for Victor C. (see here) because I have taken a pro training class from him before.. I think it was for Fall 2007, and I just was curious to see what his profile said about him. He mentioned that his favorite makeup artist was Val Garland, and… Continue Reading

Bird Poo facials in New York

Yes, I’ve been crapped on by a bird before. It was in Jr. High school, where if you tripped over your Nike Cortez shoelaces, the kids would be laughing for months about it. So getting crapped on during lunch hour and returning to class with a green substance stained into your white peasant shirt blouse… Continue Reading

Amanda Lepore Makeup Line

I love tranny makeup. LOVE LOVE how beautiful a high – arched brow and false lashes could look on a man. When I say man.. I mean aMANda Lepore. Well, she is coming out with her own makeup line, and I think I would totally buy some of it. Traci Lords? NOOO!! Amanda Lepore, damn… Continue Reading
