When @LOREALPARISUSA called to say that they were sending the L’OREAL Pro Team to Atlanta for @OPRAH @O_Magazine event I was elated. Friday afternoon at the Georia World Convention Center, Christian our tour manager confirmed that I would be speaking on the second stage with O Magazine Style Expert & Creative Director Adam Glassman alongside Valerie (VAL) Monore the Beauty Director. My legs got weak as we rode the escalator to the 2nd floor. Everything was moving fast, I was now schedule to rehearse and meet with the producer as well as go over speaking points. This is not my first rodeo ride working this event but this was the first time now being a part of the O You event, The Lord has heard my prayers.
Last week at the L’OREAL PARIS USA tech center where all the magic takes place I went over to do the beginning part of filming of the makeover not knowing that I was going to be a part of the revealing. All of the hair & makeup products that was used were all from L’OREAL PARIS. I believe in 2-3 weeks you will be able to see the video on O Magazine website….Glam Life Of A Makeup Artist!!!
