Sultry Blues Before and After

Hi Bellas,

Happy Friday! It's going to be a busy weekend for me. Tonight I have a gig doing airbrush tattoos at a middle school dance, he he. My airbrush teacher referred me for the gig and I haven't touched my airbrush tattoos in a while...since I mainly use my airbrush stuff for foundation. So I'm happy to make some quick cash and not let my paints go to waste. Saturday I'm getting my hair done, woo hoo! Sunday I have an all day makeup gig doing morning and evening looks for an Indian Wedding. It's also my last weekend before going to the Philippines so I'm trying to pay bills, pack, and do all the nessasary stuff I need to do before I leave.

Anywho, back to the post!

This last weekend was so much fun. My boyfriend's college buddy came into town with his girlfriend and we went out all weekend. It's good to get out there and enjoy the Atlanta nightlife because sometimes I feel old and tired and need to get on my dancing shoes! (See I sounded old again right? lol)

Sunday night we planned on hitting up an upscale club in Atlanta. My boyfriend's friend's girl actually does some modeling here and there and I offered to give her a makeover. She told me she loves blues so I went with it!

She already had a great brow shape so I lightly filled the brows in with cork eyeshadow from MAC. She told me how she loved that because usually people fill in her brows too darkly. I find filling in your brows with a shade lighter than your hair color looks a lot less harsh and opens up your eye shape even more.

She loved the sultry blue eyes and nude lip combo. Take a look!

I love what you done!!!! Very nice.

I didn't think C-Thru would look good on darker skintones. Maybe I should give it a try.
