2013 Spring Pantone Inspired EYESHADOW Collection

       I am so excited to share this NEW eyeshadow collection from My Beauty Addiction. It is inspired by the spring Pantone shades for this season's fashion 2013. You can purchase the shadows individually or as a collection. I would definately just get the whole collection, it is so worth it. They are a great variety of shades to compliment any skin tone and can be worn demure or dramatic.

I really love the whole collection, each shadow brings its own punch or can be easily blended to create a wide array of looks and will go amazily with my spring wardrobe. It inspires so many ideas for spring photoshoots and will go great with the spring weddings and special occasions as well.

Here are my descriptions of the shadows:
 Dusk Blue- shimmery light "denim" blue
 Tender Shoots- bright "spring" green, very vibrant
 Lemon Zest- bright and fun shimmery medium yellow, very vibrant
 Grayed Jade- semi matte grayed light green with a hint of shimmer
 Linen- fresh shimmery light pink shade
 Monaco Blue- semi matte dark blue shade with a just enough shimmer
Africian Violet- Shimmery light purple, just the purple you need for spring

 Poppy Red- shimmery burnt red shade
Nectarine- Shimmery light orange shade
 Emerald- Medium green with plenty of shimmer
My swatches of the shadows are on a clear base. They look great over
a mutliple array of base colors and look great wet as well as dry.
I LOVE them all and they are actually identicial color matches to the website photo of the products. It's always nice to see exactly what you are getting and thats what you get with these.
I used the shadow poxy as the clear base:

Wednesday Blue Period

Everyday is a painting and today I used the blues.
Even though blue is usually connected to feeling of sad or depressed,
I want to reinvent the thought because I feel rather happy
like on a dark blue rainy day when you actually get a chance to sleep to the sound of the rain,
thats a good blue.
Also seeing the blue in the sky and ocean,
another blunt hope of the endless opportunies you can create. 
It makes me feel happy, today I'm blue. :)
 Nails: Sinful Colors- Savage and OPI Katy Perry
My Beauty Addiction-
Shadows- White Diamonds, Aquadise, Champ, Navy, I.Q., Snapple
Shadow Poxy
Goddess Bronzer
Bare Lipstick
Buff Lil Puckers
It was a beautiful day for blue. :)
Stay Glamorous,

LG Images - My journey of photography

             After quitting my job at a professional photography studio, over the past few months I kind of have honestly been missing the whole photo shoot experience and the process of transforming someone. I was shooting people outdoors but since this weather has gotten chilly, it has put me in a rut until now. When I started working there I was asked if I thought I could be a photographer and really didn’t believe I was one. I always took photos of everything and everyone but never really thought this is the trade I want to do. Besides that I didn’t want the photographer to think I was there to learn photography and actually she kind of pushed me in that direction. I just wanted to be a team, be the makeup/hair/fashion person. All of that obviously didn’t work out but in a way it did. It made me realize I have a hidden talent for photography and this was a way for me to combine my skills.

            This is my first time setting up a studio in my home and actually shooting someone using backdrops and props. I got a lot of experience shooting them and at my computer editing as well. In photography I find it an endless way to create art and with every shot there is always something new to learn. For a couple months there I thought I needed to wait to even try to shoot someone until I have a better camera, better space, better this and that but looked at what I have and used it the best way I know.  The thought in the back of my mind was, “God can’t bless you with more if you don’t use what He has already given you”, that was enough motivation for me. I took the time to find everything around my home to use clothes, back drops, created hair pieces and props, etc.

         I’m really proud of myself for doing this and see this as a start of more work to come. I’m having so much fun and love the direction my work is going. I recently was asked if I would like to have my work published and achieved my first magazine publication. It’s all a blessing and I am so excited to see where this can go. I have also been inquired about my prices and will have a price list available on FB and this blog soon. I invite you to see what I have been up too. You can view all my shoots on the Facebook page:

Here are some of my favorite shots from the last 2 weeks:
