I was able to get a few snap shots during my crazy day of my girls who came to get makeup for the PROM…Girl, I remember my PROM night so very well. I was cute and wore a short black fitting dress. I had a body back then they I could rock anything.
I was busy today starting out working at the studio then I had to leave to do makeup on a bride who changed location around 11pm so I knew what the day was going to be like with her. It was a bad day mostly because of the rain…and not just regular rain. The bride was a little over an hour late so I sat there and talked with her 2 aunts the entire time. Because she was very late she was the only one that I could do because I had my PROM girls.
My first young lady was on time she was 15 mins early so when I arrived she was already outside waiting on me.
My second girl Devin called that she was running late because of the bad weather there were traffic and accidents everywhere. But she finally made it and came out amazing…take a look.

Here are a few pics of Stephanie Jordan who is an amazing Jazz Singer here in New Orleans. We just recently met when I was her makeup artist for the NBA All-Star Weekend when she sung the national anthem. Times-Picayune was doing a photo shoot on her kinda like a day in the life of Stephanie. So she set up for them to come to my studio while she was getting her makeup done so they could photographed it. They used the picture from my studio so I am so excited about that.

So today I needed to focus on placing ads in the local papers so I had a lot of the reps scheduled to meet with me today so that I can just knock it out all at one time. Basically, when you meet with new reps it’s like doing interviews. Cuz everybody wants to ask questions and I get the same questions asked all the time…how did u get started….why did you want to become a makeup artist…how long have u been a makeup artist….
So I understand when celebrities get mad and tired of doing press because you really do repeat the same thing over and over. Now I have all these press kits to look at to see which ones I will advertise in and not go over my budget. Some will not get my business because at the meeting they were not listening to me and you know how much I hate that. I feel like I give you a lot of homework;pics, web site, blogs, bio’s, old articles and etc to give you info about me. And after all that you suggest something totally opposite from me then I get pissed…now I have to cut you. I think I am very easy….GLAM, GAUDY, LOUD, OVER THE TOP!!!
Gambit was my favorite as usual …they ‘me…and I have a great working relationship with them. So, I just have to decide on how much I can spend with them and still do something else. The last 2 hours I returned phone calls and did some emails.
I had to hurry home to get myself some time to go home and shower and get ready for the Tanqueray Party at the CAC. My baby girl Jamielynn was suppose to come by to get makeup and lashes but because she still has so much to do for the event she didn’t have time to sneak off. I promised I will come out and support and I support my friends when I can. I had such a great time…we just needed Ms Shontell there to party with. They had a nice adult crowd and the music and food was on point. My favorite was the dessert!!! My boys stopped by after the game (CJ & CHRIS PAUL) and I introduced baby girl to Chris and STAR to CJ.
As usual I took lots of pics…PAPARRAZI in the house.

Short and sweet tonight….I had a photo shoot today at the studio. The GLAM SQUAD(Fred-photographer, AyakaLynn-female model, Dominque-male model, Ryan-2nd photographer, and myself on makeup/hair) got together and we did the damn thing. We were suppose to have Courtney on board to do hair again but she backed out the morning of to say she had to go to church on Wednesday morning. Not everybody is hungry…and the show went on without any problems and we stayed on time for the second shoot…sweet.
Ayaka came over early so that I go do her hair. Because she wanted length for the second half of the day I had to put extensions in her hair to cover her breast since she wanted to be topless for the last scene. So after I got the hair in I started on the makeup but I really wasn’t to sure of what I wanted to do with the makeup because the guys from Jerk & Jon Couture didn’t make it in just yet with the clothing. I have never worked with them so I wasn’t sure what to expect with clothing so I was already working plan B in my head. Looking at what Ayaka brought with her and what I had in my closet at the studio. I always bring all of my bling pieces because I love BLING. The guys finally arrived and they were actually really cool and easy to work with. Some of their pieces to me is very close to ED HARDY collection with crystals. That’s the best way to descriptive it to you.
Fred arrived around 12 noon and Dominque was running a little late but we managed to stay on schedule. Ya’ll that little boy is a cutie. If you would have seen the pics that he showed us of what he use to look like in high school you would not believe that he had that kind of potential. So now when girls compliment him he don’t know how to accept it. He actually think they are fucking with him because all of his life he was so unattractive. He really did a makeover on his on self. He will make a perfect boyfriend if anyone is looking but ya’ll can’t ruin this boy…ok!!!!
We go to the park to do the shoot. Fred left before us to set up and he was so cute. He had chilled drinks for us and a changing room for the models to change in. We had to hurry cuz it looked like it was going to rain but it actually didn’t.
Baby girl is amazing when the camera comes on. I love how she can work crazy poses and not afraid to try different things. I love working with her so much.
We stop working at 3pm to head back to the studio to get ready for the second photo shoot with Ryan at 4pm. Now Ryan ran a little late so we played around a little taking silly pictures. So I took the opportunity to do some stuff for my girl Thais Mills. The models and I had taking promo pics of her bookmarks for her company. Finally, Ryan came and we were back to work. Because it was to dark and late to go on location we just did the shoot in the back of the studio. Perfect…but the bugs were out and ya’ll know I don’t do bugs well. They really freak me out. So we finished the evening after 10ish and stayed to clean up the studio and put everything back where it belong.
Can’t wait to see the finish frames but here are some of the behind the scene pics with my camera. I checked my voice messages and Courtney called around 4pm to see if we still needed her to come by to do hair…Go figure….I’m done.
