Keeping Atlanta Hawk Sideline Reporter Elle Duncan Glamxurious at NBA All Star Weekend

I wanted to give Elle Duncan two different trendy makeup looks for NBA All Star Weekend that would go with her sassy personality. Here are the makeup items I used to keep her look stunning on television as well on the sideline. She definitely has a face that I could beat everyday.

Luv using L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder on my talent. It’s perfect on Elle Duncan
Since I gave Elle a softer makeup look on Friday, Sunday makeup had  to be bold & fun!

How I Kept Brad Goreski Flawless For His Old Navy Segment on Katie Couric

It started out really ugly and I was a little disappointed because I got up to do my hair and makeup really glamxuriously for Brad Goreski. I thought I left ugly weather in Connecticut it was ugly, but by the time I got to New York it was uglier. Regardless how much Elnett satin hairspray I sprayed in my hair, it just wasn’t cute any longer. I arrived at Old Navy in SOHO and set up my area before Brad arrived. I’m a fan of Brad so I knew what products I would need to groom him for the “How To Upgrade Your Style With Old Navy” segment with Katie Couric. I selected all of my to go to men products from L’OREAL Paris and my favorite hair products. For makeup I selected Stila Cosmetics Stay All Day HD Foundation and I used L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder.
The L’OREAL Paris products I used to groom Brad Goreski with

I knew Brad had entered the store because I could hear his voice as he was greeted by the ladies from Old Navy. When they introduced Brad to me he was more fabulous than on his Bravo Reality TV Show, It’s a Brad, Brad World. He was wearing this amazing fuchsia Burberry trench coat, purple shirt, eggplant bow tie and black fleece pants. A look that only a trendy stylist like Brad could pull off…so a’ la mode.http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

Effortless L’OREAL Paris Spring Makeup At Project Runway During Fashion Week

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

Yesterday Project Runway call time for hair & makeup was 4:30am. Regardless of how early the call time is every year, I always look forward to doing makeup at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Getting booked to work New York Fashion Week always excite me. 
One of the makeup looks for the morning show was an effortless look. It was all about minimum foundation with luminous skin. No eyeliner, no powder, no contouring, no highlighting, and no lashes.
To pull of the fresh face makeup look, I used 1 drops of L’OREAL Paris Day Lotion, 1 drop of L’OREAL Paris True Match Lumi Foundation, and 1 drop of L’OREAL Paris Magic Lumi. I mixed all 3 products on my palette and I used my fingers to apply to the model face. A perfect spring look; young, soft, and fresh.

I miss Michael Kors on this season Project Runway so I decided to wear my Michael Kors vest

I really luv this effortless look, Magic Lumi Primer is amazing to achieving that luminous look

Sundance Day 2: How I Glammed Up L’OREAL Paris Here are all the great L’OREAL Paris makeupBeauty Blogger Kandee Johnson

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

I started my morning with a request from Anita Hill for hair & makeup at the Entertainment Weekly Magazine Lounge inside L’OREAL Paris Suite. Once done one of my favorite ladies, Mora, Director Of Public Relations came at 10:00am to escort me over to The Skylodge hotel. This will be my first time meeting and working with L’OREAL Paris beauty blogger Kandee Johnson. When I arrived to the room I was greeted by Kandee mom and her precious daughter. Kandee came out and we clicked right away…after determining we are both huggers. 
Mora shared with me what Kandee day was going to be like and the look that was needed. Since Kandee was going to be doing video with The Sundance Channel I knew I had to pop her makeup just a little. I luved, luved, luved, her face. What a great canvas to work on, I told our VP of Public Relations later that I would like for Kandee to be my muse. Because she  wears makeup very well. 
On Kandee eyes, I used a forest green shadow along with the navy lacquer liner  to create a day smokey eye
Here are all the great L’OREAL Paris makeup I used on L’OREAL Paris Beauty Blogger Kandee Johnson for Sundance 2013
