The Makeup Room for MTV 10 On Top: Most Stylin’ Stars Of The Year

While everybody was trying to figure out which of their favorite stars were going to make MTV list. I was backstage working on the makeup looks with my fab team. Elated that MTV Networks called me back to create a makeup look for their first fashion show. I had to create makeup looks for Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola from MTV Jersey Shore, Actress Molly Tarlov from MTV Awkward, Blogger GabiFresh, Musicain Elaine Bradlet from music group Neon Trees, and 22 models who are also fans of MTV 10 On Top TV Show.

I wanted to keep the models’ faces fresh, youthful, and effortless with the makeup. For each talent, I gave them a personal glam look. For Sammi, I gave her metallic smokey eyes, a nude lip, and illuminated her skin then topped it off with bronzer, her personal favorite. On Molly, I also kept her eyes smokey but I added a little golden shimmer to make her eyes pop. I used a light pink lipstick on her lips to keep her makeup soft and playful. On Elaine, I wanted to play up her rocker persona. She’s confident, cool, and hip that translated into giving her sultry eyes. All of the talents and models were treated to flirty mink like lashes from Urban Decay called Black Velvet. Urban Decay lashes are a must for makeup artists and ladies who love flirty lashes. On my last face GabiFresh, I wanted her to look trendy and current. The bold pink lips, and bronzed skin was more her personality so I played with more color on her.

When selecting makeup products I used Stila Cosmetics HD Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer, L’OREAL Paris Infallible eye shadows and Colour Caresse by Colour Riche Lipstick. Of course her lashes, I never go anywhere without Urban Decay lashes. 

The show aired on Sunday night and for anyone that didn’t hear, Rihanna claims the leading spot for MTV “10 On Top” music and fashion review.

I felt that Lauren needed a little pop on her lips so I used L’OREAL Paris Infallible Ravishing Red on Lauren lips then it was blotted with a sponge to give a softer look. Lauren actually should me a makeup trick backstage, how fabulous is that!

Creating A Glamxurious Sultry Makeup Look After #Sandy

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

Like many Tri-State residents my week was filled with #Sandy challenges, a tree in my home, no power, no heat, and eating like we are on a camping trip. All my assignments were cancel so when I got a call to work with Jade I was thrill. It felt so good to pick up my makeup brushes again and create something glamxurious. The team consist of hair stylist Eric Williams from Top 5 Management, wardrobe stylist Keltoum Mazid, and photographer Sarah McColgan. We shot at Sarah glam studio in New Jersey so I left Danbury, CT at 6:45am. The car picked us up at Jade apartment at 10:30am. The rest was history!
