Makeup and Comics

Comics characters comes to life

Screen Shot 2017-09-06 at 4.15.41 PM

At the end of April, I traveled to Jersey Shore to team up with good friend and master hairstylist Kimberly Jones, comics creator Rolo Ledesma and photographer Joe Nunez to bring Curves and Bullets characters to life.

While myself and Kim’s team were working on 10 models at Kaos Hair Studio, Rolo was putting together custom wardrobe and guns, as well as placing some fake ink on models’ bodies and clothes.

The magic making process continued at Salt Studios in Asbury Park where we joined Joe Nunez for a live photoshoot. The main theme of the shoot was post apocalyptical world from Rolo’s original comic book series Curves and Bullets. While Joe and fellow photographer capture the images, guests enjoyed drinks and refreshments while watching photo action.

It was truly an amazing event, and the final visuals were more that could expect. You can watch final photos here

Making of fantastic body paint.

Hello people of the universe!

Not too long ago, I had a chance to design and create a body paint character, based on a concept from fantasy film “Witt and the Magical Spirits” produced by Happy Man Film.

The pink creature, together with face makeup, and glittered hair, was done within 3 hours, which is not a lot of time for body paint, but powerful airbrush machine, and 3 power guns, made it possible 😉

Check out the time-lapse from making of the body paint, and make sure to take a look at the original trailer from the movie. The film promotes racial diversity and equality in the movie industry, and you can support its campaign here

Holiday Makeup Trends

Here’s my article about Holiday Makeup Trends featured on new amazing blog Make sure to follow it, as those locally made, organic body products are truly working their magic 🙂 xoxo


When talking about the trends, most people think about some new, and exciting looks that haven’t been seen before, where in fact, trends are constantly coming back, maybe with some modern twist, but they are usually some kind of variation of old, good classic looks. Trends are really marketing strategies of big cosmetic companies, created in order to make profit. It may come as a surprise that most trendy loos, and colors, are repeated during every season at the timely manner, but with our busy lives, we most likely don’t pay attentions to this repeating process. That’s why we have sun kissed, gold toned look in a summer, glitters during new year and holiday season, settled, earthy tones in autumn, and pops of vibrant colors in spring.


There are few general rules on how and when to wear certain looks; if you go with dark/smokey eyes, you should leave your lips natural, and settled, or…
