I don’t know if y’all saw these floating over the  net yet but Ms. Jackson is DEFINITELY doing her thing.  I don’t think she’s ever had a better hairstyle (well, besides Pleasure Principle which I’m currently seeing all over now and plus I have bang envy).  I’m in love with this makeup too.  Maybe someone can do a Face Of The Day based on this?


It seems like just yesterday I was buying my baby sister her first makeup book, The Color Of Beauty by fly lady Iman. Now I could really use lil sis’ help in getting my smokey eye together. Isn’t she so purty? And check out her makeup skills.

Now that Iman book is a classic but you may want to consider gifting someone this new Sam Fine instructional dvd too. And if you wanna seem extra nice, you’ll add this $10 makeup kit from Lord And Taylor that could be used for practicing. Ladies young and old would appreciate a gift like this.

And maybe one day you’ll be so lucky that years and years later that they’ll thank you for it randomly while makeup shopping together. You’re welcome, Lil Sissy and you are beautiful most importantly inside, but also outside with or without makeup. Kisses! I’m still gonna steal your eyelashes…sleep light!

Well, I don’t have any full body pictures but as you guys suggested, I picked outfit #2. I had a hell of a time finding something to stick in my hair and ended up Macguyvering some wooden cuticle push sticks into something decent enough.

Also, I am eye-makeup challenged and it took me a good amount of time trying to line my eyes. I think I did okay. Not that you can really see it in this picture…lol. This is the best that I could do with my camera phone. This is me and Felix Hendrix aka Jimi’s little brother. We had an absolute blast!

The creativity was amazing and people really got into the holiday. I saw some pretty amazing costumes- like a handmade Donald Duck, a convincing Slick Rick, and a hilarious spot-on of King Joffe Jofer (James Earl Jones in “Coming To America”) complete with rose petal throwers. I obviously need my own digital camera.
