ZULU makeup for Mardi Gras 2009

After I finished my last client today I decided to practice with doing the makeup for my clients The ZULU SOCIAL AID & PLEASURE CLUB. The ZULU Organization is interested in me doing makeup for some of the ladies for Mardi Gras 2009. They want something different so they asked if I could try a few things. This is the first practice run and my next one I have to try placing a star over one of the eyes. One of the ladies wants star this years. So I have to do whatever it is the client want….right. The ZULU meeting is on Jan 7th at 6pm so they will make decisions then. Will keep you all posted.

Body Sushi…Party All The Time

This was one of those really rushed crazy days. I had so many parties to attend plus work all day and still do a photo shoot this evening in Metairie by Jerome and Yolanda studio. The young lady we were shooting tonight is an up-n-coming R&B Singer. Brittany and I actually made it out there before everybody. I love that Brittany was trying to keep me on schedule as much as she possible could so we can make all of the other things that we needed to do that evening.

Of course, I could not make it to every party that evening so I was kinda of upset. If any of the holiday parties I really wanted to attend the party of the guys I lease from. I love them so much they are so awesome. I still needed to go back to the studio and take a shower and try to do something with my hair and makeup. Mind you it’s after midnight. By the time we start the night we are looking at 12:45 am. Brittany and I head to the W. hotel to meet my hubby. The W. Hotel was having body sushi tonight but because we were so late all of the good sushi was gone so we decided to leave and as soon as we did we walked right into Laine who was coming in to check up. But I was not in the mood to stay cuz the crowd was so young.




We walk down to LOA , a Sean Cummings spot. He also has the LOFT 523 …wait it’s called something else now…I think it’s now Le Phare. So we hang out, nice and relaxing and just catch up with whats going on with my schedule and all the assignments I have coming up in in Jan 09. Carlyn shows up really late and was she out of it…but she looked good and that’s all that matter. We order a few more drinks and got Carlyn a key lime pie martini. She never had one from this spot. My favorite place …and did she love it!!!





We stayed about another hour and headed home afterward cuz I did have an early morning.

Hornets

It is 4:28 am and I am sitting in the green room waiting for Tyson Chandler and the Dr. to arrive for makeup. I just found out that the hornets won their game last night so I just pray he didn't go out in party to hard. If so his face and eyes will not look good on camera.

Lakeside Mall

Marsha and I spent the entire day just hanging, running errands and of course we had to do lunch/cocktails. Marsha selected PF Changs. I had the key lime pie martini but my best place to get a Key Lime Pie martini is at LOA. We went inside the mall and that is something I have not done in a long time. While she was in there running her mouth I decided to check out the makeup department to find something new to write about on my beautyindie.com page. It was really quiet at Dillard so I had a great time checking out a few counters. Of course I went straight to smash box cosmetics.
I ran into Tony P, and he was very helpful updating me on what was going on at Bobbi Brown. The ladies at Dior counter also picked out a lot of great new key items. Marsha finally found me at the counter and she gave me the brick because I was kinda of working. One of the nail colors that I was interested in writing about she actually purchased.

Adonis B-Day at Club Metro

Miss Marsha, stopped by to get her makeup done for her Christmas Party. I had to wait until she got off for her to stop by to get her face painted. She told me she was going to be wearing a black one shoulder jumpsuit. So, I knew I would give her a smokey eye application with a soft lip color. I love doing Marsha makeup because she always allow me to do what ever I want. I always get my way because I will only give her a look that will compliment her features. Sometimes she fights me but at the end I win…if she wants to look FAB, right????

After Marsha left, I only had a few minutes to get myself together so I could attend Adonis Birthday Celebration at Metro. Carlyn and I were suppose to meet up but Natalie and I ended up going together. While at the event Natalie mom Claudia, introduce me to lots of the Zulu members. Claudia asked if I would do their makeup again for next year Mardi Gras but this time she added on a few men. This year everybody is getting airbrushed. So, instead of getting beauty makeup I have to spray them with the black face. And they want a different look instead of the white eye and lip. I told them I would work on something and keep them posted.

Of course I volunteered Shontell, without asking:))

If Feels Like Christmas In NOLA

What a beautiful day it turns out to be…I was scheduled to go to Theresa house in Covington, Louisiana. Theresa is the photographer that I work a lot with. So, I received a call from Theresa around 8:32am to tell me we are going to have to reschedule because of the snow. So, you know me being an east coast girl I was like oh, I know how to drive in snow. But the bridge I have to take to get to her home they were shutting it down for a minute due to many accidents. That part of the city had 7-8 inches of snow so people were freaking out.

So, I decided that I will just enjoy having the entire home to myself today. I turned the computer on, the television, let the babies outside, made some cocoa, sprayed my bedroom with my d&g perfume, pulled my hair back in got into some warm clothing and jumped and bed. I started writing my article for the tomorrow entry for http://www.fashionindie.com and now I have to write for http://www.caribbeanposh.com Then I decided to bring the boys back outside but I needed to put their coats on because they are not use to cold weather. Since, I did not have the kids home I decided to play dress up with the babies and take them outside.

Within an hour Jordan school call to say they were releasing them NOW. So, I get dress again go get Jordan bring him home and he played outside with the babies while I made him some cocoa. When it started melting I brought him in changed his clothes and all four of us snuggle in bed and while they fell asleep I continued to write my articles. Then, I get this amazing call about this HUGE assignment that I may get in L.A. but can’t speak on it just yet. So, my day was nice and I plan to stay in all day. If everything goes well I will celebrate this Saturday at Adonis event at the Metro.

Don’t Sleep on L’OREAL cosmetics


Today article on Fashion Indie online magazine I wrote about the recession and not letting it stop us from being glam on a budget. So go check out my Beauty Indie section at http://www.beautyindie.com All of the makeup you see on model Sue Ellen is from L’Oreal cosmetics. Most of the makeup is from L’OREAL HIP line. That’s my favorite because of the high pigments that you find in NARS nad M.A.C. Cosmetics. The pigments are amazing to work with. I promise you will love the new L’OREAL Metallic Eyeshadows they came out with this fall.

So go to fashionindie.com or straight to my column beautyindie.com to see what I wrote about today.
