Arrived at the Amway Arena to get the NBA Fan Patrol dancers ready for their performance with Flo-Rida. I wanted the girls lips to pop so I went with a bold red lipstick from Make Up For Ever and strong contouring with high shimmer on the cheeks. Flo-Rida was schedule for makeup not until 9:40 pm, right before show time. So I had time to get others ready and check up on the Fan Patrol.
After getting the girls ready I headed over to the trailer of the group Pentatonix makeup ready for their performance. Luv these kids, the entire time in the trailer they joked with each other that I could not stop laughing at them. The group consist of 4 guys and 1 female. They did practice on the song Starship, luv their version.
DJ Rob Nice did an amazing job hosting the NBA All Star Weekend
