I just ordered a set of your brushes and I am really looking forward to receiving them. It would be great if you would make a video about how you like to clean/maintain your equipment. Thanks!

About Me

My name is Billy Brasfield, and I am better known to most as Billy B. I am from a very small town in Mississippi called Aberdeen. I had no aspirations to become a makeup artist, and I never studied makeup or assisted a makeup artist, but learned how to do makeup while working at Macy's Herald Square. I became a freelance makeup artist and I still am.
I had my own 6 Hour Mini-Series Reality based, Design, Docu Drama, on HGTV. I was a re-occurring judge on Rupaul's Drag Race season 3 and 4, and I appear regularly on "Project Runway" as I am the Global Consulting Makeup Artist for L'oreal Paris. In a nutshell, I am just a Hillbilly, that done good. ;)
