New Orleans Bride Magazine Winter Photo Shoot

A beautiful day at the winter bridal photo shoot with New Orleans Bride Magazine. It’s always nice to get requested for any assignment in New Orleans to do makeup since I am not living there full time. And getting to work with Lisa, Theresa, and Erin is always a highlight. I actually enjoyed working with an all female staff on set. There were 6 dress changes and a cover shot. So I changed up the model look a few times using different lip and blush colors. I wanted to keep each makeup look soft, fresh, and perfect for any day bride. Can’t wait to see the finish product.

Behind The Scene at Moet Hennessy Event in NY

A great evening working another fabulous Hennessy event in New York. Celebs like Estelle, Ryan Leslie, and DJ D-Nice gave such an amazing intimate show. 50 hot models were all dressed in a slinky gold dress and hair & makeup was inspired by old Hollywood. Hennessy is one client that knows how to stock their green room :))

Project Runway Makeup Collection Gets Glam At Central Park

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js _uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

Thursday I was schedule to do makeup applications at BIBI Salon NYC in Harlem. I knew I wanted to use the L’OREAL PARIS & Project Runway exclusive makeup collection. I really love the collection a lot and have been using it on assignments. 

One of the ladies Barbara wanted something glamxurious but natural.   I selected something fun and wanted to give her a little pop to the eyes since Barbara was attending Central Park AUTUMN IN THE PARK: An Evening of Cocktails, Dinner, and Dancing.
 

On Barbara I used from the L’OREAL PARIS USA & Project Runway exclusive collection:

#415 CHARMING COCKATOO’S GAZE eye shadow palette
#225 WATCHFUL OWL’S blush
#785 SULTRY RAVEN’S POUT lipstick

(not from the Project Runway collection) 
L’OREAL PARIS COLOUR RICHE leGloss in Nude Touch *the same color I used on Jennifer Aniston for Glamour Magazine “Women of The Year”

So Barbara could touch up her lips I gave her my last L’OREAL PARIS USA leGloss in Nude Touch

Barbara and her husband also made it on Patrick Mc Mullan page that evening…how fabulous is that!!!!

I’m An Addict for Beauty Addicts Cosmetics

I received a few pieces of makeup from @beautyADDICTS today and I can’t wait to play with them tonight and tomorrow. I met Joseph Mastalia, the President of DEPASQUALE Companies last month at this gorgeous Penthouse in New York. He was very impress with my makeup resume and said he would have someone from beautyADDICTS get in touch with me. He was not joking because the next day I received an email about setting up a meeting. Because of my schedule I have been traveling a lot with work that I have not had time to lock something in last month with them. So today I received some samples of the products, I guess so I can get it in my hands. 
I already luv the packaging it reminds me of BURBERRY BEAUTY packaging but BURBERRY BEAUTY is much heavier. So tonight, I’ll play with the eyeshadow, blush, and press powder and will use it on Thursday when I go to New Orleans to do the bridal shoot with New Orleans Bride Magazine. But if I really like it then it may not make it into my makeup kit.

My Glamxurious evening with Glamour Magazine 21st #WOTY

As I got myself hair and makeup ready it did not hit me that I was going to be doing makeup in the L’OREAL Paris green room for Glamour magazine “Women Of The Year” event at Carnegie Hall. I knew the event was going to be very spectacular, adorn with many elegant women looking stunning. So I decided to glam up my makeup and selected the L’OREAL Paris Project Runway makeup collection palette. I styled my hair the way Nate Berkus likes it and of course finishing it off with Elnett Satin hairspray. I choose my Swarovski crystals chandelier earrings I knew they would pop against my yummy hot pink lipstick.

As Tiffany and I enter through the stage door we were greeted by the staff at check in. Lorraine Nunez and Alicia Barone from Glamour magazine allowed for a smooth check in by confirming with us on Friday afternoon. We were given 2 assistants (Stephanie & Remi) to help us through out the evening. I always find it very helpful having personal help at large scale events as such. The green room decor was nicely done very comfortable for the talents to sit, mingle, and eat as they wait to go on stage. My first talent was Barbara Walters who wanted me to touch up her hair because it had falling flat. I used my favorite, Elnett Satin hairspray to give her more volume and touched up her lips to give her a little more pop before going on stage. My last talent of the evening was Jennifer Aniston, she was a blast. I think Jennifer was enjoying herself in the L’OREAL Paris green room with Tiffany and I way to much. Jennifer laughs a lot, she’s real,  someone you would call a bestie, and we talked about everything, but I can’t kiss & tell. Tiffany is always amazed how celebs open up to me and tell me things that reporters would die for.  This is why I am now ready for my reality show because sometimes my life seems unreal even to me, lol. Pink Sneakers productions we can talk again if you like, lol.

Our makeup room was a hit with the ladies that stopped by. I think Diana Sawyer may have stopped in the most to see Tiffany for hair, makeup, and even help with her clothes. The room was glamorous and it felt very intimate, the fresh cut flowers gave it a very soft scent that the ladies felt comfortable.With so many great L’OREAL Paris products surrounding them of course they didn’t want to leave and I didn’t want to see them go.

This room was filled with stunning celebs like: Jessica Alba, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Aniston, Marc Jacobs, Lea Michelle, Emma Stone, Tory Burch, Chelsea Handler, Arianna Huffington, Donatlla Versace, Anita Hill, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters, and many more…INSIDE THE GLAM LIFE OF A MAKEUP ARTIST
