Burberry Beauty Effortless Makeup Collection

Just recently I had the opportunity to play with Burberry Beauty full cosmetics collection. What a treat that was, Glamxurious! Like any woman, I was drawn to the stunning packaging. I imagined the products sitting on my mirror vanity like a beautifully designed perfume bottle. I really love seeing the Burberry trademarked check pattern etched into the makeup and the cosmetics packaging.
Very soon the elegant women of New York will be able to see for themselves how amazing the Burberry collection and brushes really are. The effortless makeup look that I selected to do that day was a soft beauty day look and Burberry has just the right colors with many to select. After lusting over the packaging, I was very happy to see that this collection lives up to not only the packaging but also my critical makeup standards.

Some of my favorite must have items were:
Burberry Sheer Luminous Fluid Foundation $52.00
a sheer lightweight floundation that is easily buildable if more coverage was needed
Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow $29.00
soft classic colors with just enough color for both a day/evening makeup look
Burberry Lip Definer Shaping Pencil $27.00
a sleek thin pencil that is very creamy and gives great color to the lip
Burberry Lipcover Soft Satin Lipstick $30.00
a satin texture that glides on very smooth depositing a beautiful color
Burberry Lip Glow Natural Lipgloss $27.00
a soft texture that gives the right amount of color and shine for the day/evening

So if your a fan of this iconic brand’s trenchcoats, scarves, and handbags, then you can now add the brand’s heritage Burberry tan makeup colors. I’m sure the color Trench will be a popular must have color for many. I’ll see you ladies at Fashion Night Out with more details to come.

Summer Fun with L’OREAL Paris

Another fun summer event, L’OREAL host a fun event at Gansevoort NYC Hotel with the gorgeous @Sky Nellor on the wheels of steel.

Tasha, Nil, and myself from the L’OREAL Paris Pro Team each worked on a model giving them a bronzed summer glow makeup look. Below are the colors that we worked with until Leah from L’OREAL came in with a treat. Leah received 2 new amazing eyeshadows from the L’OREAL family in PARIS that has not hit the shelves yet. They are still in the beginning stage because the color that I have does not a name for the color shadow. If and when it does, it will be a part of the Infallible line. Let me just say how amazing this product is. If this is just a sample of what to expect from the Infallible line it will no doubt be a hit. I’m excited to be 1 of 5 people here in the states to have one…fabulous!!!!
Last treat of the evening was receiving a L’OREAL Paris Beach towel. It will be handy for when I go to the Hamptons.

Central Park Bride on Thursday Morning

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js My Orange County, California bride renewed her vows in New York at Central Park on Thursday. Britney and her groom had an intimate wedding with very close friends and family present. Britney had 4 bridesmaids with one being a male who was hilarious. His personality was very similar to actor Scott Caan. 
Britney accent color was yellow and the makeup look she wanted was Hollywood glam. I used the L’OREAL Paris eyeshadow from Paris that has not hit the shelves yet on Britney and L’OREAL Paris ravishing red on her lips. To achieve the strong eye she wanted I used my favorite eyeliner, L’OREAL Paris HIP Cream eyeliner in black.
See why I have one of the best jobs in the world…random pictures I took of the bride and her family.

Sunday afternoon the L’OREAL Paris Pro Team worked the American Idol Live Tour in New Jersey. What a great way to spend my afternoon but with the girls. We rarely work together so it will be nice to see some of the girls.

Consumers that stop by to get their hair & makeup done and was given treats:

A COMPLIMENTARY SAMPLE of EverSleek Shampoo, Conditioner, and Humidity Defying Leave In Creme. In  a tube of LeGloss Lipgloss in Watermelon.

Enjoy pics of the team before the doors open.

On Monday evening actress Anna Maria Horsford showcased her jewelry trunk show in Harlem at BiBi Salon NYC from 7pm-9pm.
I was blessed to get a sneak peak of her fabulous line last month at the Essence Music Festival VIP Lounge. Anna was intown to promote the new comedy series “REED BETWEEN THE LINES” on BET Television. She wore two of her pieces that caught my eye; a metal iron piece ring bracelet. This piece was definitely something I would wear and a WOW factor for me a least. So when I received my invite I knew I had to attend to see what other amazing pieces she would showcase.
Many of you may remember actress Anna Maria Horsforsd from her most popular character “Thelma Frye” on AMEN and of course her signature line: DADDY! Anna also played Betty Jones the mother of Craig Jones in the movie Friday & Friday After Next. Anna also played the security guard Dee Baxter on The Wayans Bros, she was also in The Nutty Professor II;The Klumps, St. Elmo’s Fire, Set It Off, and numerous movies & TV series.

Vogue TV Shoot for Sperry Top-Sider

Room where we will be doing hair, makeup, lunch, and hanging out

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js Today’s shoot is one that I can now scratch off my “TO DO” list. Like so many makeup artists, hair stylists, models, photographers, stylists, I have always wanted to get booked for an assignment with VOGUE. To be in The September Issue is my next goal but for now I’m grateful to have been booked on a shoot with VOGUE TV. The client Sperry Top-Sider is a brand that has been around since my childhood and such an honor to know that they were going to be a part of the assignment.

.

The makeup & hair they wanted were the classic beach look. Effortless hair & makeup so I kept the makeup fresh and youthful by using bronzers, with pink and nude lips.
