Hey Blossoms,

So the time has arrived. The photos from the Fashion in Nucleus Territory , www.fintny.com , have arrived. Here are the models...

Sunday, November 21, 2010


Hey Blossoms,

So today I had a photo shoot with a gentleman named Kwesi Edwards of www.fintny.com. An online retail store that features up and coming clothing lines as well as some already established lines, like, LUXURY or "LRG" as most know it by. Photos from that shoot will follow soon so stay tuned.

So here's what www.fintny.com is all about. Words taken straight from the website.


FINT NY is a fashion retail e-commerce and Lifestyle Company that plays a vital role in the creation and evolution of fashion and lifestyles that is forever setting new trends, styles and patterns introduced by designers and trendsetters from the fashion districts of New York, Japan, Paris and Milan.

FINT NY serves as a melting pot for lifestyles, fashion designers and consumers whereby we assist our clientele in the process of trend creation, supplies them with the latest fashion, trends, accessories and ensures that designers and clients products gets into the hands of consumers.

FINT NY is dedicated to providing high quality services to its customers and clients. FINT NY’s staff has a proven record of market knowledge and strong practical experience in the fashion and lifestyle industry.
As part of FINT NY education & service initiative a portion of each sale will go towards higher education to create college scholarships.

I for one LOVE the fact that FINT is providing variety and a mecca for designers international and making it available to the consumer..US! Another great idea is a portion of each sale will go to future college scholarships. So the next item you buy for yourself or someone else will keep giving! How cool is that ?!

Here's a few photos of some of the items that are available! (I did NOT do any makeup for the models I'm showing below)

What a great name and fashionable items! Check the website (www.fintny.com)for yourself so you can really get a feel for what its offering. There will be more items added very soon (I got a sneak peek at some of the items and they are hottttt!) 

I know how many of you are tired of going into your local stores and coming out looking like a mannequin or worse hoping that when you wear your outfit no one else walks by with it on, piece for piece. Online retail stores are the future. As close to exclusiveness as anyone can get while its still fresh and new! 

FINT even has a blog....check it out...http://fint-ny.blogspot.com/

Overall it was a great shoot and I met some cool and creative individuals. To top it off, I have let all my blossoms know of a new online retail store with some nice rags(ok tried to find a cool word for clothes but I guess it didn't work out lol) Hit up the website and blog and give me feedback on your thoughts, opinions or even review of an item you purchased!

 Until Next Time...LATER BLOSSOMS!

Hey Blossoms,

Soo excited to bring to you all my BLOSSOMING MAKEUP FACE OF THE DAY! In these posts, I'll share with you all the different makeup looks I wear on a day to day basis and the actual products that I use! Feel free to use your own dupes(comparable/similar/look alike) products from your own makeup. This post is just to have fun. Feel free to leave questions, comments or suggestions. I'm eager to hear all of your opinions. Remember there's no one definitive way to apply makeup do whats most comfortable for you and use products which best suites you! Now let's get started!....

So today's look is featuring 4 eyeshadows from Urban Decay's Book of Shadows III: NEW YORK! Absolutely love this eyeshadow palette and I'll be sure to do a review!

So first I applied UD's Eyeshadow Primer Potion to both eyelids generously and blended it out to a smooth finish to prevent creasing. I then used UD's 24/7 eye pencils in RANSOM (purple color) and penciled in to just below the crease of both eyes and I blended the colors out so that there were no visible lines of demarcation. I added UD's eyeshadow in PSYCHEDELIC SISTER (shimmery purple) to my entire eyelid and blended it out up to my crease. I added UD's eyeshadow in ROCKSTAR(deep satin purple) to my outer V and about 1/3 into the end of my eyelid. I blended both colors together. I added UD's MAUI WOWIE(shimmery creme color) just below my browbone and blended down. I used UD's PERVERSION(matte black) in my crease. I blended this well as this color(well all the colors really) are higly pigmented! As you can tell the key is to BLEND! BLEND! BLEND! To finish the look off I added UD's 24/7 eye pencils in ZERO(blackest black) to my upper and lower waterlines, set that with PERFUSION and then added liquid eyeliner to the top lash line, flasies and gel eyeliner to clean it all up with just a touch of mascara! And VIOLA....... here's the look! I hope you like it!...

In this photo the falsies really stand out making the look more dramatic.

In this photo I show how seamlessly I applied the falsies to my lash line.
In this photo I show how the highlight of the brow bone  is really accentuated.
In this photo I wanted to show the outer V and how well all 4 eyeshadows blend into each other.

Hey Blossoms,

I'm back with another Sherry Blossom MUMO: MakeUp Makeover! This look was inspired by Kandi Burruss.

Kandi Burruss is a R&B singer, songwriter and record producer. She is best remembered for being a former member of Xscape. After Xscape disbanded, Burruss went on to help produce and write hits like TLC's "No Scrubs", and Destiny's Child "Bills,Bills,Bills" and "Bug A Boo" and even Pink's debut single "There You Go". Burruss was the first African-American woman to win ASCAP's Songwriter of the Year Award (2000). Most recently, she is best known for her debut in the second season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

A childhood friend of mine flipped through a hair magazine and decided she wanted to go with a makeup look that was worn by Kandi Burress.

In the photo Kandi made great use of purple, lavender and pink. I thought the look was fun and definitely doable so we began.

I did not get a chance to snap a before photo(sorry blossoms I will try harder to remember sometimes you just get caught up in the excitement of a makeover!)

So on my childhood friend, I used a stick foundation, filled in and shaped her brows(she didn't get a chance to get them shaped no worries I made the brows up to look as if she had just came from the eyebrow salon), I used MAC's stars and rockets eyeshadow(lavender color with a iridescent purple glow) on her entire eyelid and stopped just below her crease and blended the color out for a softer look.I also used MAC's star violet(purple color with lighter lavender flecks) along her lower lash line to complete the eyeshadow look and make the eyes POP with color even more, black mascara to upper and lower lashes to open up her eyes more by defining her lashes and lash line, blush and a berry and pink colored lipstick and clear lipgloss went on to finish the look! See the results! She looked gorgeous, Kandi Burruss inspired but still unique to her face and skin tone!

This look was definitely fun to recreate and my friend had fun as well. She's a wonderful girl! Always on the go, a young woman with a degree in Journalism, she is a managing editor and writer for www.africastyledaily.com. As usual, a happy client and my work is done(until next time!) Stay tuned for more Sherry Blossom MakeUp MakeOvers(MUMOs)!!!! Later Blossoms!


Hey Blossoms,

I'm a tad bit late with this post but better let than never. A MUMO is a MakeUp MakeOver. So, this past Halloween my friend asked me to create a makeup look for her to wear to her costume party thrown by her company, Erotic Blue Ent: an entertainment company that specializes in marketing, promotions and events. Check out her website for upcoming events and inquiries on marketing or promotional work at www.eroticblueent.com

For her costume she was going to be Queen of the Nile. So I decided the makeup look should be Egyptian inspired. I envisioned golds, shimmer, a golden glow and intensity. I also got use of my Temptu airbrush system and airbrushed on her foundation to a nice flawless finish.

As usual I forgot to take a before photo but here's a photo that was taken right after the foundation was airbrushed.

I used Temptu's S/B (silicone based) foundation. Which is absolutely fantastic as its non transferable(think: wont rub off on that special guy you go to hug or kiss) S/B foundation is a big hit among women who want long-lasting flawless makeup for their special events, proms,weddings, bridal showers,bachlorette parties, engagement parties or corporate events. As you can see the foundation looks very natural and is extremely light weight it feels as if nothing is on your face!

I filled in her brows a little as she had already had them shaped and I added gold, bronze, and then black eye shadow, falsies for a more dramatic look, golden tinted blush and shimmery nude lipgloss. The end result was superb, especially when she donned the headpiece that she was to wear with her costume for the night. She also had her hair cut into a cute bob! Very Egyptian like! See for yourself!

WOW!, what a transformation from an everyday women to Queen of the Nile! She had a fantastic time at the costume party and absolutely loved the makeup look. It not only lasted all night, through hugs, cheek kisses, and dancing but it remained just as radiant and glowing as it had been right when it was applied hours before the party had even started. She danced the night away from 10pm to 4am and the makeup was applied around 6pm. A true Queen if you ask me! Here are a few photos from the party...

 She was such a great sport and truly made the costume come "alive". The Queen of the Nile reincarnated! For me she was a happy client and my job is done(until next time!). Thanks for reading Blossoms, more MUMOs to come.

Hey Blossoms,

So today I wanted to introduce you guys to something edgy and fun: ELECTRIC BLUE MASCARA! Ok I know your thinking who would want blue eyelashes!! Wait, watch and let me explain. Blue mascara makes eyes POP!,its flattering on ANY eye color,especially blue eyes and brown eyes.

Blue mascara first came onto the makeup scene as a fad and has since sealed its fate as if it were the classic black mascara. Blue mascara comes in different shades of blue as well as in types just like black mascara. There is blue mascara that lengthens, separates and adds volume. I prefer separation as I already have long and full lashes.

Blue mascara comes in 3 shades: navy blue, royal blue, electric blue. Navy blue is known as an eye brightener it reflects the whites of your eyes and looks as close to black as any colored mascara,royal blue is a little more noticeable on the lashes and goes great if you just want a little color at the tip of your lashes, and electric blue is bold and beautiful for a full effect of blue mascara this is the one! Blue mascara does not look clownish at all, its different and vibrant. I absolutely adore it!

So Blossoms, blue mascara is Sherry Blossom Approved! Go to your nearest makeup counter and get one! I didn't list which blue mascara to get because frankly mascara is mascara to me. So I don't want to make any of you biased to any one type,go out and try different ones and see which one(s) you like. As i mentioned above depending on whether you want to add volume, lengthen or separate will ultimately help you pick the mascara that's best for you.

I freelanced at a gig where I was one of 5 makeup artists. We were there to make up the Mary Jane models for that nights event where they were to pick 4 new Mary Jane Model members. I made up 2 models.

They were beautiful women and very high spirited. The excitement for who would join their team of models that night was definitely permeating the room. The atmosphere was definitely that of nightlife. So many models trafficking in an out of the make up area, outfit changes and alterations, everyone talking at once, laughter, jokes and lots of smiling. The makeup artist were busy at work fixing and primping and powdering and anything else that needed to be done to make these ladies look even more fabulous. I took a few digi cam photos and it captured some of the beauty for a full effect you definitely had to be there in person.

This gig was really fun. It allowed for a massive amount of creativity. The idea was to make the ladies looks "POP" with color & creativity! Nothing was off limits.

The ladies were good sports too allowing their faces to be a canvas for such abstractness. The end result was definitely sexy! A night we will all remember. Big thanks to those ladies for allowing me to take photographs of them for my personal use. And whats a gig without the famous makeup artist and client picture(thank goodness I remembered I usually forget or the client leaves as you can tell from the pictures she was just about to walk out the door!) I was so excited I had remembered that I to grab 2 photos!

Thanks for reading about this fun event. Many more gigs and pictures to follow. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to email me or leave them below. Later, Blossoms
