Elevate | Makeup Play

I spent my Labor day weekend basically all over the place. Different friends, sceneries & places constituted to be one of the most epic weekends I've had. Quick note on what I did: Las Vegas, Drunken BBQ & 2 rooftop bars in a span of 4 days. On Saturday I went to a rooftop bar in LA with my girlfriend called Elevate. Elevate was a perfect concoction of what my 25 year old self would like to be: very classy & upscale with a mix of some old school hip hop to drown in. Anyway, I wanted to put some of my never-ending pigments (wil blog about it all later) to good use for the night -- just a REALLY simple smokey eye :)
