It’s 6am, Rain Rain Rain go away. I started my morning by going to the L’OREAL Paris office on 5th Ave to drop off a makeup kit that I used for a L’OREAL Paris assignment that L’OREAL sponsor. I don’t think the ladies arrived to the office just yet so I didn’t get a chance to see any of them or fairy godmother.
Then I headed over to the Clarins office on Park Ave to do a full day of training with John Trau, Director of Education at Burberry Beauty. 5 talented artists was selected and I am honored to say that I am one of them; a Freelance Burberry Makeup Artist. I am so elated about being a part of the first group of Burberry Makeup Artist here in New York. Tomorrow Burberry Beauty will launch during Fashion Night Out at Saks Fifth Avenue. A perfect time to introduce such a iconic and luxury brand. May of this year I was thrill when asked to do makeup for The English Ball Honoring Angela Ahrendts, Chief Executive Officer at Burberry and faith has it that I am now a part of the brand. I really love the quality of the makeup so perfect the effortless elegant woman. I received my gratis and makeup brushes so I will be wearing the product tomorrow. The brand is building so darker shades and more makeup items will gradually be added to the collection soon. They have many amazing items that I promise you will love. So come see for yourself starting tomorrow.
Heading home to pick up my makeup kit so I can meet Lauren Brenner of Pure Power Boot Camp at her home for 8pm. Tonight I’m doing a consultation for her big day later this month. Then my day will be done.
