Ralph Lauren Fragrance Big Pony Collection Cocktail Party

On Tuesday I went to L’OREAL Paris Tech Center where I worked with Ralph Lauren Fragrances. I was asked to do makeup on two gorgeous latin models; Cris Urena and Danielea de Jesus Cosio, two of the new faces of The Big Pony Collection. The makeup storyboard had the girls general makeup; clean, polish, sophisticated, all american and natural. Cris is the face behind fragrance #4 and Danielea is the face behind fragrance #2. The cocktail party was held at Locanda Verde in New York.

Fun Sultry Photo Shoot in Soho

I had the pleasure of working with Jade of Jades today, a talented and gorgeous young woman who sings & act. She has done Broadway shows and sing background with music artist Solange Knowles. Jade is working on new pictures and asked if I could help her out. Nyla, the hairstylist did a great job with Jade’s hair, luv the fishtail.
Jade had a few different looks that she wanted me to create but because I was having a vertigo attack all day I couldn’t be as creative as I would have normally. But with a pretty canvas to work on I could have painted her with my eyes close. 
My makeup of choice on this shoot was: Inglot, Stila, OCC, and L’OREAL Paris.

Sleek and Contemporary: The Revolution Makeup Brushes

When I received my complimentary state of the art Royal & Langnickel set of Revolution brushes from BellaPublic Relations, I was elated. It was perfect timing. I was heading out the door to go to MTV to work on Hip Hop POV, so I couldn’t wait to use them on the ladies to see how they work. Once I actually opened the package I was impressed with the sleek and contemporary look of the brushes. Celebrity Makeup Artist Kevin James Bennett collaborated with Royal & Langnickel to help create the Revolution collection. Each brush head is made of DuPont™ Natrafil® fibers, giving them a soft natural feel. Being that Kevin is a professional makeup artist, I am sure that he thought about durability, length, and comfort of the brushes ‘handles. The brushes seems to be high quality, so I can’t wait to see what amazing work I will be creating with my new Revolution brushes.

Glam Makeup Looks For The Ladies of MTV Hip Hop POV

Last night of the season for MTV Hip Hop POV, so I decided to have fun with the ladies; Devi Dev, Amanda Seales, and Sowmya Krishnamurthy makeup tonight. I knew the makeup on tonight show had to be glamxurious. I relish every Monday because I was able to paint three beautiful canvas with different makeup looks. 
Sowmya and I had an inside joke that she’s the cousin of the Kardashian family. Because I’ve worked with the Kardashian family in New Orleans, working with Sowmya perfect canvas was like working with the Kardashians. Amanda, was my golden palette that I was able to play with bold color eyeliner on her.  My two favorite to use on Amanda were L’OREAL Paris Hip Chrome liner in Violet Volt and Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Turquoise. We had a connection the first day, maybe it’s an island girl thing. Amanda allowed me to play with fun and sometimes sultry makeup looks. With baby girl, Devi Dev, I always kept her lips in soft baby pink, her signature color. Dev luved Stila cosmetics long wear liquid lip color in Petal top with Victoria Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss in Slice of Heaven. Dev, a sweetheart would come in early in we would just have great conversation so I got to learn her personality.
Looking forward to the fall season to play with the ladies makeup again. I must admit Devi Dev, Amanda, and Sowmya are the hottest looking TV host on television and not just on MTV.
Using L’OREAL Paris Infallible LeRouge in Ravishing Red on Sowmya 
Using  Royal & Langnickel Revolution blush brush to apply Stila Cosmetics Custom Color Blush in Pink…my all time favorite 

Last minute touch ups on Devi Dev, using Stila Cosmetics double sided illuminating powder brush making sure her cheeks has enough glow on them.
GORGEOUS!!!
GLAM Team & Hosts in the Hair & Makeup Room…where all the fun things happens and topics that can never be mentioned on HIP HOP POV, LOL
So Amanda and I were trying to give it but I don’t think I was successful at it, lol
