Being invited to attend Fresh beauty event was such a treat and I made it just in time because I had BEAUTY 2 beauty event the same day. What a way to end my evening by being around beautiful cut fresh flowers, Veuve Clicquot, great skincare products from FRESH and the lovely and talented illustrator Blairz. To finally have my own piece of art work from Blairz I can now scratch it off my list. Blairz designed the Soy Face Cleanser limited edition bottle for FRESH and it’s fabulous! Are you #SoyObsessed
As Nicki Minaj would say, I Been On…In 2007, I was interviewed by Strive Magazine on rebuilding my brand in a new city after losing my home and 3 makeup studios in New Orleans. Being an entrepreneur has always been my thing. Besides being a Celebrity & Entertainment Makeup Artist, I am also the Co-Founder of Entitled Beauty a luxury mineral makeup line, and I’m the Founder of Beauty Blueprint, where I teach aspiring makeup artists/ hair stylists the business side of the industry and how to elevate them to work in their field. Being on social media with 47,400 followers on Instagram, I’m also being called an Influencer.
A Boss is something I’ve always been and I have never let my health (Lupus) stop me. Using words like “I Can’t & I Don’t Know How” is not allowed in my home and I don’t have sympathy for someone who cries about a headache or upset stomach. Being an entrepreneur is only for hard working individuals. I still have a few more things under my belt. With one being joining the committee for the first ever Danbury Fashion Week here in Connecticut, so I’m on the board and of course I’m handling Hair & Makeup, and A Blogger Kick Off Party. This is taking place July 24-29th and I’m so proud of it.
Can’t Stop One Stop, my old boss Diddy taught me that…oh peep the hair in 07 💇🏾♀️💜
Thanks Sam for putting me in your magazine ❤️
So my question to you is, when did you know that you were going to be an Entrepreneur?
As you know it’s #lupusawarenessmonth and I live with this horrible disease, Lupus. When I sat with my business partner to discuss our first set of lip shades I knew I wanted a violet purple shade for #lupusawareness so at Entitled Beauty we launched a lipstick color called “Orchid” and my goal is for everyone to own a product that means a lot to me. On Friday, I would like to see all of you wearing “Orchid”. Tag me @bgdmakeupartist and @entitledbeautyworldwide with your lipstick color on. Don’t let me down. 💜💄
It is Lupus Awareness Month so I shouldn’t be surprised that I’m back in the hospital with a flare up, this is my glam life.
I always say my body is like playing a game of cards because I never know what I’m going to get when I wake up in the morning. Because I’m not a person that go to the hospital for every little pain I get I’m always in bad shape when I get to the hospital. I won’t take off from an assignment I have learned how to manage and still do beautiful work while in pain. When I do say I need to go to the hospital the pain level is over 10.
This time my flare up was in my left hip and leg. It was so swollen, had redness/inflamed, and painful to walk. My day started with going to the doctor with hopes of getting a shot for the pain. Right away my doctor said, WOW, you have septic joints. Before I can get dress the ambulance was being called, and a wheelchair brought in the room. Like my doctor said, I’m so vain, I turned all that down, Oh Hell To The No!!! Then they try showing me how to use crutches, turned that down also. I promised my doctor that I was going to go to the ER, went home and waited for my husband and son to come home so they could escort me.
So now I’m at Danbury Hospital, my second home…smh. Lots of blood work was done as usual and X-Rays to see what was going on. I was given some strong meds to calm down the flare up. I’m not a fan of pills because I don’t like the way it makes me feel. Give me a cocktail any day because I’m in control and I know my limit. They gave me Naproxen, Diazepam, and Oxycodone. I now have to go see a Orthopedics to make sure I don’t have any damages with my joints/muscles from walking for a long time without seeing a doctor.
So, I’m on bed rest for 2 days and I’m thinking positive that everything is ok and no blood clotting while traveling on Friday. Because of my history in the past I use to clot so I wasn’t able to travel for some time.
It’s Back, BEAUTYCON Festival in New York! When you put over 30K+ beauty lovers in the Javits Center you get FABULOUS! This 2 day event can be overwhelming but it feel so good. The energy is great, makeup, fashion and pictures being taken every second. Finally a spot for individuals who luv beauty can all just be themselves and not worry about being judged. Beautycon bring together the hottest brands from hair, makeup and skincare along with the most popular Beauty & Lifestyle Influencers who actually strut around with bodyguards and screaming fans.

Covergirl cosmetics brought me back as a Makeup Artist to share tips and beauty tricks to the consumers that was attending. And Studio B Entertainment did an amazing job with the the setup and production of the set. This year my partner and crime, Johnny joined the team and guess what Covergirl has a new slogan. It’s no longer Easy Breezy, its now #IAMWHATMAKEUP
My favorite day! The energy was the best ever and the music was bumpin thanks to DJ MAAD. Did I tell you my other partner in crime Ilse was also working, she was at Rimmel. If you didn’t get a chance to attend Beautycon start saving for next year because it’s so worth it to attend if you love anything BEAUTY.
To celebrate our success we had to get fancy real quick at Grand Central before boarding our trains back to Connecticut. We toasted to Ruffino Prosecco in a cup of ice.
