BeforeThis will be the first and last time you see my face naked like this!

Before1My friend, Madinah, the MUA wanted to practice her skills. So, I played the mannequin. She starts out by shaping, contouring, and shading the eyebrows.

Before4The concealer and foundation process begin. I look like Simba from the Lion King πŸ™‚

Before7The finished process. She finished the look with an ombre lip. A queen in the making.

Model Behavior. I love makeup.

Before8I am wearing a dress I got from Dot’s a few years ago, and the blazer is from Torrid. The makeup was done and turban wrapped by Madinah.

Detroit, MI

I was invited to this expo by Carlotta the founder of the She Is Project and True Root Marketing. It was a day filled with panel discussions by PR and marketing women, fashion bloggers, and business minded people. The room was full of photographers, retail booths, and local bloggers all coming together for one purpose: empowerment.
