V Kosmetik Lookbook

It was a pleasure to be the official makeup artist for V Kosmetik's lookbook.  I would like to thank Vickie Joseph and Varda Étienne for their trust!  V Kosmetik is a new makeup line for women of all skin colors.  Stay tuned for the official spring launch! 

 

Here are a few photos behind the scenes, official photos are found in the Editorial section of my website.  You can also follow V Kosmetik on Facebook and Instagram for more images and updates: @v_kosmetik

The internet is such an interresting medium...

It enables you to connect with people you might have never met otherwise. 

That's what happened a couple of years ago when I met a poet with an incredible ability with word play.   It was before I was a mother, when I was a carefree woman with little to lose but herself.  The poet and I discussed, exchanged ideas and one day he surprised me with a poem that I actually inspired!

That man is Vernon J. Davis, Jr. The poem Sylkie's Soliloquy which I inspired can be found in his book The Emosewa Woman

Thank you for immortalizing a fragment of my youth with your tender and sensual words! Even though we have never met, I will be forever immortilized within your art... 

 xoxo Merci Vernon
