Faces of N2N: Sade Connell

I love collaborating with photographers. Nothing gets the juices flowing like a crisp 5:00 a.m. breeze in your face while walking through a gully holding a reflector and a light stand when working with photographers. I met Sade when working with Joel Brooks completing demo makeup for one of his Photography training courses.

A little background here . Joel is an awesoooome photographer. I mean... he made me look like this on a church bench in his living room .

He conducts a series of workshops covering everything from how to hold your camera to lighting to photoshop. He even got me to put down  my cell phone and take pictures with a proper camera.

Sade often worked with Joel and before I knew it, she agreed to work with me as one of the faces of N2N. Her fun and glam look worked well with whatever we do but even better she is a QC gal like me.... 

 .... and she lives right around the corner . Which made it easy to plan shoots around times which were convenient for us both.

Sade is one of the faces of N2N luxury our service using high end products for a high end finish.

Favourite Makeup Looks : I guess it would have to be a smokey eye with a red lip. Or even a really natural look with nude lips . ( Two extremes, I know lol)

Makeup that drives me crazy : I would never wear yellow eye shadow or lipstick.

Daily Makeup Regime :  I own a little makeup. Just the basics really, powder, eyeliner, mascara, some lipsticks and lip glosses . Recently bought foundation for the first time! On a daily basis I wear little to no makeup. Lots of times I just don't wear any but when I do it would have to be powder, eyeliner, mascara, a little gloss and that's it.

What's your favourite part of being made up by N2N? Hmm that's a touh one . I love the whole process! But if I had to choose I would say my favourite part is looking in the mirror when it's all finished and seeing how STUNNING my makeup looks. I'm amazed every time :)

During the holidays Sade was the face of N2N Holiday not to mention participating and modeling for our various classes.

We love working with Sade . Her ready smile and stunning looks are second only to her great personality. 

Hmmm that sounds just like another QC girl I know ;-)

Faces of N2N : Tommi-Ann Grant

I've always loved having photoshoots for my promotional material. It kills me when someone uses Google images to find a generic photo so that they can create their flyer.  You know, google a cupcake, add words and instantly  you look like a baker. It especially kills me when a makeup artist uses faces from the internet to advertise their services.

In their defense It can be hard to find willing and reliable faces.  The average bajan doesn't relish climbing out of bed for a 4 a.m call time to shoot at 5:30 a.m. with a photographer unless you are actually paying them like Naomi . Fortunately I was contacted about makeup for a pageant and met Tomi-Ann. She instantly became a fave and is  one of the three Faces of N2N . 

 Here are some of Tommi-Ann's Shots from  Kolij Runway 2.0

"My name is Tommi-ann Grant, I am 15 years old. I attended the primary school St.Angela's and now I attend Harrison College and later hope to attend a golf school overseas and to also study business."

Favourite Makeup looks :  would have to be a soft, simple, girly look.

Favourite shadows :  range from different shades of brown, gold and black.

Favourite lip colour : would have to be a light pink or nude lip and occasionally a red lip.

Colours that drive me crazy:  I can't imagine myself wearing a yellow eyeshadow or a blue 


Daily makeup regime : I do own a lot of makeup but due to school I don't get a chance to wear it on an every day basis other than on weekends which I usually just do a brow, use mascara and eyeliner. 

What is your favourite part of being madeup by N2N ? : The best part of being made up is the feeling of being pampered and seeing your face being more flawless and beautiful in the mirror.

Tomi- Ann isn't just a pretty face she is also an avid golfer. She represented Barbados in the Republic Bank Caribbean Junior Golf Championship recently held in Trinidad. 

Tommi-Ann recently graced all the flyers and tickets for the sold out and ever popular N2N workshop . This was her first of many promotional shoots and she was flawless. 

Awesome photography by Joel Brooks

The N2N team is thrilled to have her on board. Look out for more from the newest face of N2N.

Please note I didn't mention why I haven't blogged in months . "Uh too shame " . Look out for a blog post next week and I mean it !
