Iman Cosmetics

Sam Fine is one of my fav makeup artists! This morning I found some notes from his visit to DC in February. Now every time this man mentioned a product, I scribbled it down in my notebook. I purchased many of his recommendations and they are staples in my kit. Sam always mentions Iman Cosmetics but I never had the time or confidence to try them out until of late.

Makeup Wish List

After busy season (spring, summer), I'm gonna treat myself to a few new goodies. My kit has come a long way and I'm blessed that it can play alongside some of the best makeup artists in terms of products and tools. I've invested heavily into transforming my kit into a high quality, functional, efficient, lean mean fighting machine (lol).
