I had such an amazing time teaching illusion #makeup at @jmakeupacademy yesterday! 🎭👁 I demonstrated a cracked #mask effect with a hand-painted #eye using @mehronmakeup and @bennyemakeup. Thanks to those of you who came to my class and chatted with me! It was so nice spending the day with you guys and getting to know all of you. A big THANK YOU to @jmakeupacademy and our sponsors @mehronmakeup, @bennyemakeup, @sonny.leiva and @clairedycat_ for making this lovely event happen! I will miss you! 💜 • Model: @clairedycat_ • Photos and video by @andrewy527

Always on my phone 🤳 @apple • Here’s my first ever attempt of a video edit. 😂 Just thought it would be interesting to show you guys how I had to distort the lines to make them appear straight at front view because the human face is curved. Looking forward to sharing more of my process in the future as lots of you have requested! 💕

Thank you for such a special day @blancheworld — a place that has turned my life around and allowed me to be exactly who I am, my second home. It was my honour to be able to share my story with our students today and to spend time with the family again. I’d also like to thank @makeupforeverca @makeupforeverofficial for being so supportive of my artistry since day 1 of my journey. I will forever remember the day that I did my first ever illusion look using 2 MUFE kohl liners which opened a whole new world to me. I wouldn’t be where I am today without all your love, support and guidance. I love you all! 💕 • Swipe for snippets of my story and demos.
