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

Just getting back from working at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. So on this season of Project Runway 11, I was only able to work on the finale during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. As usual our call time was at 4am so I never sleep, I stay up after working because I’m commuting from Connecticut that I have to drive in. Before leaving I got the house ready for the big Nor’easter that we, the Tri-State were getting later this afternoon. So if I get stuck in the city the kids would have food & heat.

I was very excited about this seeing designer Sammy B because I got to work with her a year ago in Harlem for Harlem’s Fashion Row photo shoot. Like many people who meet & work with her, I fell in luv with Sammy B. I was also excited about meeting two other designers, Stanley Hudson & Michelle Lesniak Franklin. I was praying that I get to do the makeup for their models. Stanley collection was very old era meet new era classy women. Stanley had these rings that had my names written all over them. Michelle clothing mesmerize me that I couldn’t even do my work, I kept looking at the all her models that kept coming in. I was Christmas shopping in my head. I ended up with getting two of Patricia models in one of Stanley model.

Hanging Out With My Favorite French Girl…Garance Doré

I always enjoy going to @GaranceDoré home to do her makeup. She’s elegant, funny, and luv to chat makeup. Upon my arrival she was doing her own nails. Once her nails dry she wanted to give me a proper greeting which means a hug and cheek to cheek bisou. I unpack all my L’OREAL Paris makeup goodies, and asked about what fab event she was getting herself into so I’ll know how to prep her face. 

I decided to keep her makeup look clean & natural. Today it was all about showing her skin. I couldn’t wait to use some of L’OREAL Paris new items on her like my favorite; Revitalift Miracle Blur and True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer. Of course I reached for my oldies but goodies: HiP high intensity pigments Concentrated Shadow Duos in Shady, HiP high intensity pigments Bright Shadow Duos in Flare, and Glam bronze pressed bronzing powder. All done…magnifique!!!

Photo time…just finished doing Garance Dore makeup…effortless. One day I will beat that face, I just don’t know when, lol.

Destination Wedding At The Ritz Carlton New Orleans

Everybody always forget the groom on the wedding day, put I  knew my groom would need a  little help, he is in New Orleans. If he partied like I think he did the night before then L’OREAL Paris Men Expert Eye Roller would be needed.

A Glam Makeup Day With The Ladies Of WNBA

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

It’s always a fun time when I get to do hair & makeup with the ladies of WNBA & ESPN. What’s special about working with the ladies is that don’t do hair & makeup everyday. But when they do they enjoy it in they appreciate the makeup looks that I give them. What I uv is how flawless the ladies skin is, it’s like a perfect canvas.

WNBA Basketball Player Swin Cash…can I say SUPERMODEL, she is gorgeous and she luv makeup so I had a great time painting her. ESPN Anchor Hannah Storm is another fun and glamxurious canvas that I could paint everyday. Not only is she pretty but she’s a sweetheart. Very easy to talk to and very receptive about what makeup colors I selected for her. My favorite, WNBA President Laurel J Richie is striking with great skin that I never have to use a lot of makeup on her. I enjoy giving her what I call a signature look that I like to do on her. I always keep her hair in a classic style noting to fussy.
Because the ladies are busy and don’t have the time to keep touching up I like using long wearing makeup items so they don’t have to do many touch up’s throughout the day.

WNBA is making some new changes within the brand and behind the scene I plan to take the ladies to  a new sophisticated makeup look.

Couture From The Runway To Your Nails

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

Nail art has become the  new trend amongst teens and women. Many walk around with adorned nails just as edgy and embellished as their jewelry, clothes and shoes. There are just as many shades of nail polish as there are lipsticks. And with so many yummy shades to choose from, even the polish obsessed can get their fix. I, too, have now fallen in love with nail polish and my choice is from Couture Gel Nail Polish. I have recently been introduced to Couture Gel Nail Polish and they offer about 75 bold delicious colorswith cute names.
My favorite things about this brand is that their nail polish, is harsh chemical free, last up to 3 weeks, so I don’t have to worry about my nails chipping the next day. In the past, this has been a problem for me therefore I usually don’t like getting my nails done. But now I can work on set, and don’t have to worry about my polish smearing, smudging, and scratching off. What I also like about Couture Gel Nail Polish is that I can now give myself a professional manicure at home or while I travel. The 36-watt Espree Salon Lamp is small and lightweight enough to travel with and sits perfectly on a vanity. Whether I’m home or on the road, I can sit in comfort without the smell of a nail salon. Just 2 minutes under the lamp after applying and you have glamxurious nails with a diamond-hard finish.
My nails shine bright like a diamonds and always start  a conversations because the shade “Bling It On” is to die for. And if you’re anything like me, you love love love bling and platinum everything. I promise you, you will fall in love with it. “Little Black Dress” is a perfect shade of black that I sometimes like to wear under ‘Bling It On”. “Skinny Jeans” is a sexy midnight blue that is dark and a fabulous alternative to wearing a black nail polish. I look forward to sharing Couture Gel Nail Polish with my girlfriends, brides, and celebrity clients, so everybody around me could have great nails.
