Yesterday afternoon beauty blogger Mindy McDonald hosted Beauty Happy Hour at her home in East Haven. Beauty Happy Hour is a makeup class where I give makeup lessons to an individual or to a group of women. Mindy invited family, friends and associated who she knew loved makeup in enjoy getting makeup tips from a celebrity makeup artist like myself.
I started Beauty Happy Hour after I was diagnosed with Lupus, Lyme and RA, it was a way for me to continue to work doing what I love, that’s makeup. I worked with lots of celebrities, on TV Shows, photo shoots, fashion shows, music videos and so much more. Slowing down not traveling as much I thought bringing a fun galmxurious event to the women in Connecticut would be a fab way to stay in the beauty industry at the same time bringing awareness to the disease that I fight everyday. I’m so thankful for all the brands that sponsored the event for me such as L’oreal Paris, Bare Escentuals, & Flower Beauty with makeup to place in the goodies bags.
Mindy set up outdoor, we had a nice cocktail reception first, once the weather cool down we started the makeup class. The ladies all brought their own makeup & makeup brushes. The makeup look that I taught the group was a smokey eye a makeup look that all agreed was a challenged for them. Once the class was over lots of selfies was taking in pics was uploaded to every social media pages, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, & Snapchat.
Beauty Happy Hour is a fun girls night out for any occasion while bringing awareness to a few horrible disease that many women suffer with.
