From the Roots I Came....

Hi beauties!! I just wanted to do a quick post on makeup that I did for a photoshoot yesterday with one of the island's well-known models. The theme was African, but more, rural, tribal Africa. I was definitely on board to do makeup for this shoot so I basically did a neutral look then "upped" it with random tribal markings.

Cassi is truly unique and has a distinct look. View the pics for yourself!!

Cayman Fashion Solstice 2010

Just about every country in the world has a fashion week except for us here in the Cayman Islands but Guavaberry Marketing (Cayman) Limited, gave us what we've been longing for; a fashion weekend. Once again, I had the fabulous opportunity to work with and network with some of the most gorgeous people in the business. Living on such a tiny island definitely has its pluses and being a makeup artist is definitely one of them (wink!)

Cayman Fashioin Solstice ( is the Caribbean's premier fashion gala event! The vision for Cayman Fashion Solstice has culminated into a four-day fashion and lifestyle evnt, which combines private soirees, fun fetes, island tours and sailing excursions.
The Solstice Fashion Gala, which remains the nexus of the Cayman Fashion Solstice event, serves as a platform for showcasing international trend-setting fashion designers and models from some of the world's top agencies including Ford, Elite, Major Models, Red, Muser, DNA, Q Models and Identities.
The evening's fashion show highlights renowned designers from New York, Los Angeles, Guyana, Trinidad and the Cayman Islands (YAY!!!!!). Headlining the international cast of modesl are Georgette (Georgie) Badiel, a former Miss Africa, Bobby Roache (YUM!!!!!), Leah-Mari Guevara, Wendell Lissimore, Kadeem Fischer etc and of course, some of the islands' GORGEOUS models.

I had the fabulous opportunity of being a makeup artist for this gala event and I met every person who was involved in this production. Imagine having to do makeup for 24 models back to back??? Needless to say, at the end of it all, I was NO USE to myself. Thankfully, I was able to catch an itsy bitsy part of the show.

Here are a few pics!
