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

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

  • greatgospel

    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


  • greatgospel

    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

  • Tamara

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

  • Michelle

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

  • Colie

    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

  • Thelea T.

    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.

  • Brenn

    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!!

  • jayAdoubleZ

    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…

  • Assie

    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!
