Makeup Monday: When Beauty Meets Food With Chef Gina Keatley

Heading to the city at 5am…Glam life of a makeup artist 
A lot of makeup (STILA, L’OREAL, TOO FACED, NICKA K NY) I plan to use on Chef Gina Keatley from her Dukan Diet segment. This chef luvs makeup & lashes
I LOVE this foundation brush from NICKA K NY…it’s only $5.99. You can find Stila at Sephora, L’OREAL at CVS and NICKA K NY on their website.
Must have hair goodies from Sexy Hair & Absolute Hot 
Now this is how you bring your hair tools to set…Absolute Hot 4 & 1 is from the Nicka K NY family
Luv working with Chef Gina Keatley….she know her food and luv a sultry eye. 
I’m obsessed with how her makeup came out…flawless…those high shine lips are Crystal Shine Lipgloss from Nicka K  NY. Thanks to SEXYHAIR I was able to give Gina her signature pompadour  hair style.
This fab young lady is Constance Pulsfier, Dukan Diet brand ambassador and I’m going to give her a fresh makeup look & playful hair.
I really enjoyed working with Constance, doing both hair & makeup on her. She lost over 200lbs

Beauty Happy Hour: My Favorite Looks From The Spring 2014 Face Charts

As a little girl I was always obsessed with sketching face charts and creating makeup looks for myself. I’m still a big fan of face charts in looking at beautiful ones created by other talented and professional makeup artists. During Fashion Week, Key Makeup Artists will meet with the designers to create makeup looks for their new collections. Majority of the fashionista who attend fashion week enjoy going to the shows to preview their favorite designers newest collections. My favorite spot is being backstage watching the Key Makeup Artists teaching their teams the gorgeous makeup look. Here are are 3 of my favorite makeup looks that was created this spring, I’m sure you will be obsessed as well.

Romantic Date Night
Face Chart Created By Target’s makeup maven Sonia Kashuk
1. Apply Perfecting Luminous Foundation with a damp blending sponge for a radiant, even complexion.
2. With the Chic Luminosity Bronzer/Blush Duo in Glisten, apply bronzer for tone and blush for brightness
3. Using the Eye Couture in Eye On Neutral Shimmer, sweep shade seven all over the lid to just beyond the crease, followed by shade six just below the crease blending color seamlessly. Take a small eye shadow brush and pack on shade 10 along the upper lash line, blending out. Using a shader brush place shade 12 directly at the upper lash line, extending the line slightly up at the outer corner. Continue down the lower lash line, keeping color light and smudged.
4. Give your eyes that shut-down stare with Full Drama Eyelashes.
5. Color in lips with Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Pinky Nude for kissable color that stays put. If you prefer shine, top with a bit of Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss in Prettiest Pink.
6. Mist on some Pink Innocencia Eau de Toilette for a delicately feminine scent.

Face Chart Created By TEMPTU Key Makeup Artist Michelle Cameau
Step 1: Foundation
Use TEMPTU PRO S/B Foundation to create a dewy yet satiny base.
Step 2: Concealer
To create highlights in the face, pick a light shade from the TEMPTU PRO S/B Concealer Wheel, and pat under the eyes, on the forehead, on the chin, and along the bridge of the nose.
PRO TIP: Contour and slim the face using the darkest shade of the Concealer Wheel.
Step 3: Eyes
Contour the crease with a soft brown shadow, then line under the eyes with TEMPTU PRO S/B Highlighter in Silver Shimmer. Extend the line for a sultry cat eye!
Finish off with two coats of black mascara.
PRO TIP: Create a natural full brow by dipping a slanted brush in TEMPTU PRO S/B Airbrow, then lightly feathering.
Step 4: Cheeks
Airbrush the apples of the cheeks with TEMPTU PRO S/B Blush in Apricot for a subtle tint that mimics a beachy glow.
Step 5: Lips
Airbrush TEMPTU PRO S/B Blush in Ruby Red over the lips. Use bare fingers or a lip brush to tap TEMPTU PRO S/B Blush in Raspberry on the center of the top and bottom lips, creating an ombre effect.
Step 6: Set
Seal the makeup with TEMPTU PRO Invisible Difference Powder in Banane.

I can’t believe it’s Essence Music Festival 20th Anniversary! I remember it like yesterday when I was living in New Orleans and received a called from Essence Magazine. Sander Martin called me about using my makeup service for Susan Taylor. 
I’ve been working doing makeup for Essence Music Festival since. I’ve only missed 3 festivals. Not to bad…as always around this time I get additional calls about booking my makeup services. I get an assistant to help with my schedule while I’m traveling or working. It get really crazy and I luv every minute of it!
