My favorite MUA's out there are Kandee Johnson, Michelle Phan and Promise Phan! I'm sure every makeup lover knows who these ladies are. They are, in my opinion, the best MUA's out there! Their work is amazing and I really wish to be as good as them in the future. The first makeup tutorial video I saw was a Makeup Plastic Surgery video about how to get rid of dark circles by Kandee Johnson which really helped me out alot!
My makeup inspirations come from mostly just doing my own thing. I do sometimes like to recreate looks other artist do but most of the time I don't really like to plan out a look so what I do is grab a few makeup products and go with the flow.
My favorite look that I have done is the Before & After look I did not too long ago. The look was inspired by a photo I saw on H-town Beauties facebook page but I added my own twist to it and made it a bit different. The reason why I think its my best work, even though it has no designs or art, is because I'm showing a beauty transformation. I definitely don't have that "Natural Beauty" and wanted every person that feels as self conscious as I am to see how makeup can make a woman feel so beautiful inside and out!
My favorite makeup brand of course is Motives Cosmetics. Not because I sell them but because my love for the products! I could not find the perfect foundation and concealer for my skin before Motives. I would waste money on so many other products cheap and expensive and ended up with my face melting, breaking out, oily all over, and cakey! So I started to think "well nothing is gonna work on this face so why bother anymore" When I first tried Motives I was in LOVE and as I mentioned thats how my love for makeup started. The products are just beautiful, so pigmented, long lasting and gorgeous! Another brand I love is elf. I love their eyeshadows most from their line of makeup. Other brands that I have always wanted to try but haven't gotten to just yet are Makeup Forever, Bh Cosmetics and Lime Crime. I've heard alot that their products are amazing and I can't wait to try.
