The Ultimate Thurs-date

written by: @jlscloset :

Finally, after months of playing phone tag and conflicting schedules being reunited feels sooo good! True friends can go without seeing each other and maybe not be able to keep in contact for days/weeks and pick up exactly where you left off just like it was yesterday. Read more on Seams That Way.

SPRING Pink Glam Day

@ jlscloset @lorealparisusa @pinkberry @redfishgrill :I had an off day of doing makeup, what better way to spend it but with my FAB friends. I started this beautiful spring day with my bestie Jamielynn in New Orleans. JL have a cute blog called Seams That Way so you must check it out. We always have a fabulous time together talking about fashion, makeup, hair, photo shoots, fashion shows, and more fashion. I decide to wear something light and very feminine.
I kept my makeup very light and I decided to not even waste my time curling my hair I opt for a straight look. I used L’OREAL EverSleek Humidity Defying Leave-In Creme and EverSleek Frizz Taming Creme Serum on my hair. My hair stayed straight and kept a great shine all day. We started our day with lunch at Drago’s Restaurant because I was craving for spicy seafood all winter. After eating so much carbs we walked to Pinkberry to have a nice yummy treat.

Later in the afterrnoon hubby & I went over to the Red Fish Grill to kick off Saturday wedding celebration of another bestie, Jessica deben who’s a makeup artist in Los Angeles. Hubby and I had a great time meeting Jessica fiance Darren family. A full GLAMXURIOUS spring day with friends….

New Orleans Bride Rachel Young Glam Makeup

This was a New Orleans bride that was special to me. I met Rachel from one of her besties Ashley Barnes Jones, a former bride. Rachel called me a few months before the wedding and said she wanted her eye makeup to POP, a different look from what I did for her engagement pictures. Once the day arrived and after seeing all of her colors I started playing around with the makeup look for the bridesmaids. My inspiration for Rachel makeup was the beautiful peacock feather that was worn in the girl’s hair. I wanted the makeup to be fun, bright, bold, but at the same time I wanted to keep her skin bronzed and luminous. Of course not all brides could pull of this glamxurious look but Rachel definitely did.

HAUTEMUSE Cover: Socialite Olivia Palermio

Haute Muse Qatar
Next month @hautemuse_ is schedule to launch and already scoring GLAMXURIOUS points with me by putting one of my favorite fashionista socialite @therealoliviap on their first cover. An excellent choice if you ask me, even if I’m just a makeup artist. I do know she looks freakin AMAZING!!!
I want to schedule a photo shoot just to pull of this look. I recently worked with a Russian model in New York that reminds me of Olivia. We have a shoot coming up in April I can’t wait to use the makeup colors that the makeup artist used on Olivia to create this beautiful cover. It reminds me of a modern version of the MOD RETRO 60’S makeup.
HAUTEMUSE, I can’t wait to see what other goodies you will have gracing your pages. Watch the sneak peek video of Olivia Palermio on Black Tie Stiletto.

Throwback: Bubblin Brown Sugar

I woke up this morning saying HEY HEY HEY, quoting Dwayne Nelson from the TV sitcom “What’s Happening”. It made me think about how much I really enjoyed that TV show growing up. I’m not a big YouTube fan but I knew if I wanted to find a clip of one of my favorite episode’s from that show it would be on YouTube. WOW! I found so many great music videos from my childhood, movies, etc…Can’t wait to get home to do nothing but play on YouTube.

So here’s a CLASSIC moment of the Givens Kids singing Bubblin Brown Sugar

New Orleans Bride: Kia Gray

Another beautiful wedding in New Orleans. My bride Kia  and her girls stayed @ritzcarlton and also had both hair & makeup done in the suite. Kia and I met last year and she booked me before doing her bridal makeup consultation. She didn’t want to lose her date but I already had a makeup look in mind that I wanted to do on her the first day we met. Her bridesmaids wore a truffle color dress, I selected a variety of pink shades with a touch of bronzer for the makeup. I stayed away from using a brown eyeshadow because I wanted to keep their makeup soft and youthful. So when her day arrived I was so excited because Kia is such a great girl.
Below are some fun shots that were taken of the day.
