Artist: Pain Killer Cam Art

 

Pain Killer Cam Art, as the artist is known as, dreams come true when media moguls Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King got their hands on his creations. We spoke with the artist briefly and here’s his response:

 

 

Pain Killer Cam

 

 

There is no doubt that he is talented but what’s more remarkable is his humility and recognition of God our father. It is God who gives us the strength and abilities, that produces joy and wealth. A true leader understands that he is great only because of who is carrying him. We salute Pain Killer Cam Art!

 

Dreams do come true…

I created this look simply by expressing my love for Instagram with makeup. Creating these looks was so much fun because I got the chance to be creative with the things I love.
  • Foundation: Makeup Forever
  • Concealer: L.A Girl Cosmetics
  • Contour kit: Beauty Benefits Hollywood
  • Brows: Anastasia dip brow pomade
  • Eyeshadow: James x Morphe palette

  • Highlighter: Milani Cosmetics
  • Eyeliner: Jordan’s Cosmetics

Tips:

  1. When using highlighter I spray a light mist on my brush before dipping into the pigment.

  2. When applying dark shadows I use two brushes one to pack on the shade and another one to blend it out.

  3. Instead of letting my setting powder sit on my face straight through, I set twice. First to set my concealer in place and second to cut my contour
