Yummy411: Green Tea Dosage II: Choices

Hi all! My friend (we go back to open mic in undergrad, lol), Green Tea, has been working on her second album (Dosage II: Choices) due to release 9/04. In designing and creating the album cover, I was commissioned as the makeup artist! I was so excited to be a part of this "family affair". This happened a while back, but I'm happy to know that everything came together and it's all happening.

Here are some shots on 'set' ;)

Since this was a while back, I'll just have to tell you all the products used, and not specific colors and names: Black Opal with Studio Fix Fluid on her face and some Ben Nye powder to set. Copper Sparkle on her eyes and lips (she wanted her lips that color! lol). Ardell falsies. She has ultra deep set eyes like Iman, that I was apprehensive about, but I worked it out!
I'm so proud of her. The next time, however, I will be armed with my bleach for her brows or my Girl Boy brow set! ;)
**Also in the family, I did her makeup!**
