Alright ladies and gents, it’s Sunday night and you know what that means. I’m ready to unwind and surf my favorite social media outlets.  Before I start my search for eye candy, I’d like to introduce you to a very talented make-up artist. Her name is April Lopes and you can find her on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Below are some pictures of her work which she has posted on her Instagram.

She did a before and after on KocoSky’s founder, Frankie(above). She did an amazing job bringing out Franki’s natural beauty. Soft warm colors on the eyes and sun-kissed lips…simply georgeous!
