From The Eyes Of NBA Makeup Artist: First Day at NBA All Star

written by Connecticut / New York Makeup Artist

Call time for the first day was at 3:00pm, car service picked me up and brought me over to the Amway Arena. The first day I like to go over a little early to set up, talk with the ladies in the production office just to see if there were any changes, pick up a daily run down sheet, and  talk with wardrobe. 
Make Up For Ever sponsored the makeup for our fabulous team thanks to Makeup Artist Debra Gutierrez. So after looking at the fashion selected by Niki Hall I went to the makeup room to meet up with my girls who arrived around 1pm. The girls help me set up my area then we had a quick meeting to go over the makeup looks and schedule.

The first day is always easy and quiet so after the event was over we all went out to Tier Nightclub. The party was presented by CIROC & CROWN ROYAL with special guests: Lebron, Melo, Chris Paul, Jermaine Dupri, Terrance J, & Dougie E. Fresh.

The makeup items that I selected from Make Up For Ever for the dancers to wear were: 
Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick Satin Fuchsia #36, 
Aqua Lip Lip Pencil in Fuchsia #16c 
HD Blush Microfinish Cream in Fresh Pink #3
Aqua Cream in Golden Copper #12
HD Invisible Cover Foundation
HD Microfinish Powder
