2018 Pantone Color of the Year!

The 2018 Pantone Color of the year is ULTRA VIOLET!  If any color speaks to richness and royalty it’s the color Ultra Violet.  I not only love this color, I love the inspiration behind this color choice.  “A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future”.   Ultra Violet also reprents pushing the boundaries, being limitless.  As a Make-up Artist, I get so excited to see cosmetic brands paying tribute to the Pantone color of the year.  This year we will see in fashion, home decor and cosmetics….. Ultra Violet!  Grab something Ultra Violet to represent your limitless power.

Tell me about your work? Get to know your Make-up Artist!


, ,


I speak to so many brides and people that want their make-up done, but very seldom do I get asked “Tell me about your work?”    If I had to answer this question I would say:

“My work, depends on the job, but if I were to describe it I would say, I always strive to achieve color harmony and effortless glamour.  I love and respect the contours of a face. I have studied color theory and the power of color harmony.  When you have a basic understanding of which colors enhance and compliment your client’s eyes and hair, you now can create a beautiful work of art using a custom palette created just for her.  You can also custom build her cosmetic wardrobe.  During my make-up applications my only goal is to enhance (not transform, unless that’s the job) the beautiful canvas that I have before me.” by SEE

3 Little Birds #mylipstickstory


, , , , , ,

3 Little Birds is a lipstick that reminds me of my core;  my core values, my heritage and who I have become.  My family is a cod fish and dumpling, Bob Marley loving, Jamaican family.  Growing up, food, good home cooked food,  was always abundant and present at all family gatherings .  My mom would cook and listen to reggae music all the time.  Bob Marley was one of the main ingredients to the perfect morning of frying dumplings and plantations.  I remember watching my mom one morning, all smiles, totally happy, cooking and dancing at the same time, occasionally closing her eyes as she felt the music.  She was listening to Bob Marley’s “Don’t Worry” song.  As she sang the song  I remember clearly joining in and singing the chorus ” Three Little Birds, pitch by my doorstep, singin sweet songs of melodies pure and true, saying this is a message to you” .  The 3 Little Birds was a symbol of hope bringing the message that “every little thing gonna be alright”.  That stuck with me and I thought how blessed I was to be apart of a trio, my mom had three daughters ( 3 Little birds), and hopefully my sisters and I could represent a symbol of hope.  I now have my very own 3 Little Birds. The pictures below are of 2 sets of 3 Little Birds, my sisters and I and my 3 children.

The color of this lipstick is a reminder of the perfect sunset,  at Rick’s Café in Negril, Jamaica.

nothing sweeter than Sweet Lyrics! #sweetlyrics

Pre-Sale is OPEN!  There is nothing sweeter than Sweet Lyrics!  Sweet Lyrics is about using raw authentic poetry as a form of therapy.  Sweet Lyrics is near and dear to me because this story includes my very best friends.  The type of friends that know everything about you, I mean EVERYTHING, and still love you.  I am fortunate enough to have that bond with a few special ladies.  These ladies empower me and we use poetry as a form of release from the daily stresses of life.  We use poetry to express our deepest emotions whether we want to scream, fight, cry, love,  make love or just crack up laughing.  The best of all of this writing was sharing it with each other.  For years I have held on to all these poems, these precious pieces of art and remember the different phases we went through and most of all, what we have overcome.  Sweet Lyrics is about sisterhood, shared strength, wisdom, bondage and our personal melody. I stand here today and truly mean that there is nothing sweeter than Sweet Lyrics…by S.A.K.S!

Sweet Lyrics (iced)-jeweled wine

Story– Poetry is her therapy and she shares it with her best friends…S.A.K.S

Wanna Beach House for $18? #beachhouse

When I picture the perfect life it always consists of good health, lots of love and a luxury beach house.  I remember thinking to myself I would love a beach house but it’s probably not realistic; it’s way too expensive, I have to save for college for my kids, etc.  I made up every excuse not to believe that this dream of a luxury beach house could ever happen.   I remember listening to an old wise soul one day say, when your dream starts waking you up at night or taking over space in your thoughts, you can’t ignore it or push it to the side anymore.  Well after hearing this I began to pay close attention to this dream that literally is burning a hole in my thoughts.  As of today, I don’t own a beach house but I see it and feel it’s in my future….God’s timing.  This Lipglaze, Beach House, represents my biggest dream and the sunset on a hot, sunny beach.  Wanna a Beach House for $18?  Yes I’ll take a couple!
