Behind The Glam Scene Of NBA ALL STAR Weekend

Regardless of how many years I have been the NBA Key Makeup Artist I get excited about the first day like I’m in high school. My makeup kit is ready at the front door, my clothes laid out and it’s a production getting ready, music on, food and drinks ordered, selfies being taken. When I know I am going to have a long day and I know I’ll be taking lots of pics of myself I use L’OREAL Paris Infallible foundation.


All of the credentials for my team

Here is the hair & makeup room for the talents, the headliners have a different green room

I have known Shannon since I opened my first makeup store in New Orleans, she started out as a client then later started doing makeup. Luv her!


My team captains for all 3 days, all of these amazing people worked with me for the last NBA All Star’s in New Orleans but also for so many other different assignments. If you do great work and have great energy I will call you every time I need hair & makeup in New Orleans. The rest of the team will arrive Saturday& Sunday.

Getting a touch up by my favorite girl Shannon…did I tell you how much I luv her!

Now it’s time to do some real work, started our day with getting Megan Miller ready. I’ve worked with Megan before so it’s always a treat working with repeat talent.

Carl is being teased because he hates being on camera and is not a fan of social media

Hey Erin…Erin was my personal hairstylist in New Orleans. She’s TALENTED!

Nicole is the NBA Host and another sweet girl that I always enjoy getting makeup ready. Her skin is FLAWLESS!

Shannon got jokes, she’s imitating MOI and how I apply makeup with love to my clients
