NYC Trip 2010

Last week I went on vacation to Chicago and NYC with Josh (Petrilude), Suzy (MACNC40), and met up with amazing people in NYC, including Brooke (SayAnythingBr00ke), Joy (FalloutJoy), Nick (SoundlyAwake), Justine (JPMetz), Michael (hartzproductions), and Amber (ninteenpercent), Yeison (LoserLuigi), and Risa (Makeupbyrisa). I had a BLAST, probably the best time I have spent with these people that I can remember.

One of the greatest parts of hanging out with people who share the same interests as you is it’s incredibly inspiring. Being in a room full of people who are playing with makeup and getting ready and everything was like a fresh drink of water for me. My day-to-day life makes me so.. “meh” about wearing makeup, because it isn’t necessary. The second I was with all of these people, it was like my love for makeup just came and slapped me in the face, SO awesome.

Brooke and Suzy, Pretty Makeupss

DSLRs make your makeup look amaaazing haha

Hartz and me, LOVE this boy

Justine and Amber, Nick did their makeup!!

We were being 80s haha

Using your friend’s camera to take pictures of yourself would be awkward in any other situation

Damn him and his ability to be a ridiculously hot woman

Probably my favorite picture hahaha





LOVE THIS, we look like a band lol

Cute boyyyyy

Risa! So freaking pretty

    aww leesha this makes your absence almost worthwhile.

  27. Claudia says

    You are all so sweet! I’d like to kiss you all! ;-) Greetings from Germany

  28. Rachael says

    The pictures are great, and your makeup does look fabulous. It’s a shame that we wont be able to purchase those colors. Where did you get your MacBook cover? I love it!!!

  29. Kacee says

    wait. im SO confused…you and nick are engaged? what?

    1. Kayla says

      LOL, no they’re not. It’s a joke.

  30. greatgospel says

    love these pics, you look beautiful… great to hear you are inspired… your make up in these pics look brilliant, are you going to do a tutorial on them? LOVE your videos and your kitties, lots of love from the UK


  31. greatgospel says

    oh yeah and I think you should do some oldschool Leesha videos with crazy bright colours like these… like old clashing fierce fridays… maybe you could call it ‘Fierce Friday: Colourflash’ or something and do all these amazing looks from these pics! xxx

  32. Tamara says

    Such amazing makeup!!! Josh looks great with the red wig and brows haha, very interesting look.

  33. Michelle says

    Leesha thanks for sharing some fabulous photos! Enjoyed them ALL! Looks like you had a blast! Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

  34. Colie says

    So first, you and nick must have babies. Second could you PLEASE at least blog on what you used in these looks, if not make tutorials. Im just really interested in recreating them! all my favorite youtubers in one place :D :D

  35. Thelea T. says

    You pulled off some AMAZING looks, Leesha. Don’t be a stranger!

    …I mean- technically you *are* a stranger. Well, I’m more of a stranger to you than you are to me, because I know a lot more about you. …Ah. Well, that’s not creepy at all hahaha! But you know what I mean.

  36. Brenn says

    It’s so unfair that Josh is as good looking as a guy as he is as a lady!! The makeup in every single picture is so fun!!

  37. jayAdoubleZ says

    It seems like when you get around these guys, they bring out some inspiration in your makeup & you look freakin awesome. MacNC40 always does such awesome looks but never post videos about them! Errrr…

  38. Assie says

    I need to recreate the look you have in the second pic! I love love love it! I love all the looks, but that one the most:) I’m glad you had a great trip!

  39. d&rk $p@rk$ says

    hi……………………um…………………….its hard to say this but……………………………..WHY DID YOU BANN ME????????????????????????????????????????????????im not mad but now i cant chat and that makes me mad.:(

  40. MissR. says

    Seriously adorable. Tutorials on all those looks puh-leeez!

  41. xjanemabobx says

    looks like you had fun :). I love the makeup in the cute boy pic, it’d make a great tutorial :D

  42. Amber J says

    Omg looks like a ton of fun people all together! :D I’m glad you are having a great time!

  43. Erin says

    OMG! You are all so breathtaking! I feel as though I’m in the presence of royalty! Amazing.

  44. Lorraine says

    Do you happen to know which blush you’re wearing in the 14th picture?

  45. Laura says

    leesha this photos are just fun to look at, thanks for posting :)
    josh is just the prettiest woman eva XD

  46. Dinocoredani says

    I demand a tutorial on all those past looks you did! lol

  47. Dinocoredani says


  48. Shelle says

    omg you have to do tutorials on some if not all those looks i especially loved the purple and turquoise lid and the first photo of you with all the colors…i love it please do tutorials

  49. Hannah says

    Leesha you are so beautiful and so are you’re other makeup guru friends! I’m so jealous of Josh’s ability to be a ridiculously good looking women and a really cute looking guy! haha =] but you’re awesome girl. You are the one that really got me into makeup and beauty. Thanks.

  50. Gabriella says

    Aww, cute pictures! Everyone’s makeup looks amazing! I guess thats what happens when a bunch of makeup gurus get together, lol! :)

    Check out my blog: Principessa Gabriella

  51. Tamsin says

    You look stunning in every picture :D And I love the makeup you have on, especially the eyes in the last picture – could you do a tutorial? :) x

    1. karen says

      yeah !! totally love her last two picture makeup !!

  52. Cher says

    You’re absolutely gorgeous Leesha! I love the pictures! My friend tells me that since she has pale skin she doesn’t want too many colors on her eyes, but you own the colors!

    Thanks for sharing with your fans!

  53. Shanny says

    You’re getting married??? What the frickin’ hell.

    1. kacibrianna says

      BAHAHA Nah, she’s kidding. She’s got a boyfriend named Tyler XD. It would be HILARIOUS if she married Nick though… Rofl XD.

      1. Simone says

        Not anymore :( But I agree, how awesome would it be if Leesha and Nick got married? It’d be like an explosion of awesome if they had a kid, it’d probably rule the world and we’d be slaves to it! LOL.

  54. Caitlin says

    Aww that looks so much fun. I wish I could hang out with you guys! You all rock!

  55. Jordan says

    Could you do a video on the second photo of you? So cool, like a technicolor peacock!

    1. karen says

      *thumbs up* !!

  56. karen says

    hi leesha !! love your makeup looks !! especially the makeup for the last 2 pictures shown here !! please do a tutorial on that makeup look plsssssssssssssss!! =)

  57. karen says

    i think the last 4 pictures are the same makeup look !

  58. TayyRenee says

    Where did you guys get those amazing Macbook covers? I want one for my mac!

  59. Harper says

    Oh my gosh. You guys are ALL SO ATTRACTIVE.

    How unfair.

  60. Barbara says

    Your makeup looks amazing in all the photos! Can you do tutorials for all the different looks you had? I especially love all the really colorful eye looks. If you could also do a post on all your Inglot colors with the corresponding item numbers so we can know what to ask for if we want to phone in an order, that would be AMAZING! Also, don’t hesitate to do tutorials with all your Inglot, we still want to see what you can do with all those great colors.

  61. Mandy says

    Hi Leesha! I love your website! I was looking at the pictures and i think you should do a tutorial on the make-up you did in the 2nd picture to the top! It looks very fun and bright! I also think you should do a tutorial on a tropical themed look!

  62. Sydney says

    i luv you make up in the pic where it says cute boy will u do a video on it :)

  63. Emily says

    Leesha you are sooooo adorable! haha

  64. Haley says

    You are officially the coolest person in the world.
    No, not because you are a makeup mastermind, because you have the Dharma Initiative logo on you apple.

  65. eebest8 says

    Simply a smiling visitant here to share the love (:, btw great design and style .
