Faces 1st & Pre Teens....

Here a few pics of my daughter & my neice. They are 13 now & wanted to play in make up. You know I wasn't goin to say no to that!!! LOL
These arent looks that I would allow them to walk around in (just because its a lil too grown & bright in my opinion) was just us playing in colors & having fun!

Enjoy & Thanks for looking!!

Color on a Woman of Color!!

Okay so I have a friend who SWEARS up and down that "colors" are not for Women of Color!!!! Who in the world told her that?? lol
Anyways, she came to visit me and during her visit we played in colors. Now this look is not a look that I would reccomend her or anyone else in a PROFESSIONAL Occupation wear out as a Daily look..I was just trying to show her how pretty colors could & would look up against her beautiful skin tone!!!

Well....Here she is.......

On her that day I used:
I forgot what foundation I used (sorry)
Lucky Jade s/s
Bitter e/s
Parfait Armour e/s
Swish e/s
Stars N Rockets e/s
Frankly Scarlet Blush

Kool l/s
Mlle Maraschino l/g stain
Red Cherry Lashes (4got what #) and
a few tear drop stones for a lil added dramatics

Thanks for looking!

Hootie Mahdi the Makeup Artist

Hello World!
It's just me,
Hootie Mahdi the Make-up Artist!!
I want to start off by telling you all a little about myself.
I am a wife, a mother and a very good friend to those who know me and who are friends to me! :-)
I got into make up when I was younger but didnt decide to make it into a career until 2006.
I am a Freelance Artist which means I am free to do whatever I choose BUT not for FREE!!! LOL
However, I am available for some TFP/TFCD with a mandatory KIT Fee of $50.00..These days with the HIGH cost of gas not too many people are willing or shall I say able to do a lot for FREE especially if they have to drive and use up thier own be mindful of that before asking someone to do ANYTHING for Free!!
I love what I do and I take pride in it everytime I pick up a brush. I try to go for what my client wants but at the same time I give my input because not everyone knows whats best for them (make up wise)! I promise never to leave any of my clients unhappy.
Anywho, enough about me (for now) :-)
I will be back in a few to post more blogs & pics of my work!
If you have any questions, Please don't hesitate to email me: I check my email every 5 minutes so be sure to hit me up!!! LOL
Thanks for reading!
