Miss My Makeup Studio & Beauty Bar

I remember the first day Tamicha Roberts (my personal assistant) and I found this storefront. It would be my second location makeup store in New Orleans. When we walked in I fell in love without taking two steps. The exposed brick walls, high ceilings, concrete floors, and large windows I knew I had to have all 2400sq ft of it. I didn’t care how much it would cost I just knew that this was going to be mine. Tamicha and I started coming up with ideas, laughing as we each would yell out something fabulous.
I had so many amazing things happen to me there. I worked on many beautiful women of New Orleans as well as celebrities and out-of-towners. I threw many parties and held my most popular in successful Friday Makeup & Martini’s days that its still popular amongst nightclub promoters in New Orleans.
My life has completely changed since August 2005. The last time I saw it I didn’t recognize it. It cost me so much heartache with insurance companies, alarm companies, entergy, etc. but I still miss it & my clientele off 600 plus women. I’ve grown as a makeup artists. been bless to work with so many people, companies, events, TV shows, fashion shows, etc.
This picture of my studio made me stop in smile….Inside The Life Of A Makeup Artist!

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

I was so happy to see that one of my favorite single High School on Nicki Minaj latest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded-The Re-UP music video snippet has been released by Grizz Lee. Not only do I love this upbeat track but Lil Wayne is also on this single. In the video it shows Lil Wayne & Birdman happy, having a great time with Nicki. It’s a side of them that many never get to see so it just made me smile and I wanted to share this with you guys. Definitely brings back memories of when I did videos with the guys several years ago. Thanks Grizz Lee for making my day today!

Stylist Brad Goreski Gives Old Navy A Spring Upgrade

Today at the Old Navy Showroom I met up with TV Personaliy & Stylist Brad Goreski to groom him for his press event today with Old Navy. Brad is always fun to work with and I look his dapper style. Today he was rockin DSQUARED2 looking like the guys, Dean & Dan Caten. Because Brad has great hair and skin it’s always easy to style his hair and doing his makeup. To maintain his look I use: L’OREAL Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur, Stila All Day Foundation, L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder, L’OREAL Paris EverStyle Texture Tousle Creme, and Elnett Satin Hairspray.

A Family That Shovel Snow Together Play Together

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

Today is a snow day for myself and my son that is still in high school due to 6 inches snow that we received at 4am here in Connecticut. Since my husband had to still go to work we got up and decided to all participate in shoveling so hubby could get out the driveway. After 2 hours of getting the snow from the front door and driveway someone thought it would be a great idea to have a snow fight. I love these family moments…now it’s time for hot chocolate with marshmallows and a movie.

L’OREAL Paris New Hidden Gem: Miracle Blur For Instant Smooth Skin

Now days everyone has a favorite filter they like using on their phones after taking pictures to create a smooth face because they dislike the way their skin looks. The one thing many girls and women have in common when it comes to wearing makeup is that it exposes their flaws. This a big challenge when choosing makeup because you don’t want to showcase the uneven skin, acne, dewy skin, winkles, or any other problems. 
Well ladies, L’OREAL Paris has come up with the best product ever to give you a flawless photoshop look. It is called RevitaLift MIRACLE BLUR. This wonderful product instantly erases the look of pores, wrinkles, uneven skin, and fine lines leaving it looking and feeling velvety smooth all day. So what is Miracle Blur? It is not a primer, it is not a moisturizer, and it is not a tinted moisturizer. It is this amazing instant skin smoother, the first of its kind, and L’OREAL Paris is the first makeup brand to come up with it.
When using it, I like to apply it both on my male and female clients when on set. I apply a moisturizer first on my client followed by Miracle Blur. For women with great skin, using it alone will give a matte finish. I also like using it for a quick touch up to keep shine down instead of using powder. All Teens, young adults, women, and baby boomers, I promise you will all enjoy this great new product. So when your friends ask what filter did you use to get your face so flawless on Instagram picture, tell them it was MIRACLE BLUR. http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();
