On set of Project Runway All Stars getting my area ready
Just returning back from working Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. My next day assignment was Project Runway All Stars Season 2 finale. The great thing about this assignment was that I didn’t have to bring any of my own makeup. Perfect timing because that meant I was going to have to stay all up all night to clean my makeup kit. I arrived in New York at midnight due to bad weather so all I knew that I wanted to do was sleep when I got home.
Because I was so excited about working this assignment I never got that sleep I needed. Once arriving to Gotham Hall our makeup station was already nicely set up so I didn’t really have to do much but add a few things to my makeup area. Matin Mualawizada, Laura Mercier Global Artistry Director came in and started right away showing us the makeup look per each designer. To be working alongside the talented Matin was definitely a highlight of my day. To watch him work was like watching a painter. I luv how he works with his hands…a true artist.
I was assigned to work with designer Emilio Sosa models. The look was called Plantation, so the makeup was very bright with strong brows and extra large double lashes. To be honest with you I really didn’t have a lot of Laura Mercier item in my makeup kit. But after working with the entire line I am now a big fan. Laura Mercier has lots of goodies that I can’t wait to add to my kit. My favorite was everything, lol. I liked her eye shadows, her lip colors, foundations and powder. Told you I luved everything. I look forward to working with Matin again, crossing my fingers. And I will keep you posted when the show air and will post the additional pics of the models. See ya bye & luv u mean it!
All of the goodies…makeup sponsor by Laura Mercier
