New Year’s Eve Glam Makeup on Essence Magazine

@shakeyourbeauty @essenceonline @essencemagazine  Last week I taped a GLAMXURIOUS beauty segment with Essence on-line Beauty Editor Tia Williams “Shake Your Beauty”. We had a great time and I always enjoy working with Tia. The look that I did was a GLAM makeup look that you girls can rock for New Year’s Eve. It’s a fun look for any party tonight. My 3 yummy features: Glitter, Lashes, & Nicki Minaj pink lips.
I’ll be at BibI Salon NYC today giving ladies this flirty look who feel they couldn’t pull it off by themselves. If you want to ring in the New Year looking FAB, call to make your appointment at the salon 212.932.2220
Whatever you do…have a GLAMXURIOUS and safe night and try not to sleep in your makeup

Photo Shoot: Behind The Scene Pics

Thanks @hjules @smashboxartists @occmakeup & to the FAB Lori Taylor… Here are some fun behind the scene pics from yesterday photo shoot. It’s now 1 day after the blizzard here in New York. My morning started off really funny…Pink Sneakers Production should have capture this on camera, lol. I was trying to cross the street but still not a clear enough path to walk so I tried using my makeup bag to knock down some of the snow…well after swinging my bag a few times I lost my balance in went down. As I felt myself losing my balance I pulled a Mariah Carey and said to myself SHIT!!!…I braced myself to fall cute just in case someone caught me on camera, hahaaaa.
After that madness I headed to midtown, as always I arrived first. Both models were late because they got lost not being from New York. Everything was such a mess in the big city. Anna was a Russian model and Sarah was a German model, these girls knew when to turn on…luved it!!!We also shoot outside so the girls were a trooper in my book. At the end of the day we had a FAB shoot. Enjoyed working with a great team.

Let it Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

I don’t play with mother nature, when they announced a snow storm / blizzard was heading to New York I made sure I was prepared. It’s been over 13 years since I was in a blizzard here in New York. I made sure that I had lots of CARBS & COCKTAILS in my house…of course food, candles and batteries just in case. Plus, I charged my iPhone and my extra charger.
My girlfriend Wendy who lives on Long Island came to visit to keep me company. We had a great girls day…lots of talking, lots of laughing, ate, played with makeup, had a photo shoot, and had cocktails. Wendy arrived around 9:30ish am and left around 5:00 pm. Let me tell you she made it home just in time.
A fun day inside but not so fun for anyone that was stuck outside…

Have A Summer-time Glow Even at Your Winter Destination Wedding

In a Winter Wonderland, December and January destination brides always have to think of how to illuminate their skin on their wedding day. For my winter brides, I like to use Smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Foundation Primer on the skin. It evens out the skin and gives my bride that beautiful luminous glow. In addition, it creates a smooth and perfect canvas. I like using a makeup brush as I apply this silky primer for an even distribution for foundation application.
To play up skin that still has a nice bronze, the Smashbox Photo Finish Bronzing Primer will enhance bronzed skin. Just like the foundation primer, the bronzing primer also has a silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants. The silicone emulsion will fill in fine lines as well as smooth out pores, skin texture and add a delicate bronze hue to the face. It’s a great product to use alone or with foundation, concealer or powder for a flawless finish.

As it snows on your wedding day, be sure that as you walk down the aisle you will be the only one glowing…let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Dinner at Red Rooster Restaurant in Harlem

@RoosterHarlem @MarcusCooks @markingrambride …After a fun filled day at Essence Magazine office shooting a makeup beauty segment and at Instyle & Entertainment Weekly Magazine office chatting about Sundance Film Festival, I was starving for a great home cook meal. The FAB Reggie Evans suggested we stop by Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem for dinner and cocktails. It was a total of 5 of us without reservation, a crowd of sexy, well dressed professional people were at the door waiting lined up with and without reservation. Mya, took great care of us and was able to get us a table with only a 5 mins wait. So excited to see the amazing Mark Ingram-Bridal Atelier sitting a table away from me. He’s very attractive, so polished and such a gentlemen. I know because I was able to meet and chat with him for a few minutes. This will definitely be the spot to be in Harlem…for me-cocktails and the ambience. Thanks Marcus for bringing your dream, passion and luv to Harlem. Happy Holidays to you, your family and stafff.
