I felt that Lauren needed a little pop on her lips so I used L’OREAL Paris Infallible Ravishing Red on Lauren lips then it was blotted with a sponge to give a softer look. Lauren actually should me a makeup trick backstage, how fabulous is that!

After talking with the talented choreographer Fatima Robinson about the makeup look during Mary J Blige and Kelly Clarkson rehearsal. Fatima shared with me what she wanted for the dancers so I knew I had to use products that was going to last the dancers all evening. I prep all their faces with Maya Water and OCC lip balm for their lips. On the eyes I selected L’OREAL Paris new Infallible 24hrs eye shadows. On the lips I used both L’OREAL Paris Colour Riche leGloss in Raspberry Splash and Stila Cosmetics Lip Enamel lip gloss in Giggle.
Enjoy some of the backstage shots of me getting some of the fabulous female dancers ready. I worked backstage with Celebrity Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist Leo Eley who worked on the hair and we were a great team together. I think my highlight was seeing Denzel Washington and all I can remember hearing his tone not sure what he was saying. My brain completely shut down and Denzel sound like Charlie Brown teacher…womp womp womp womp. Ladies 50 cent was also backstage on stage, he looked very handsome and actually he may have been the only guy that was dressed for the occasion, at least that I saw. Travie McCoy was such a gentlemen when he sit in my chair. Very sweet guy and thinking me with a hug and a kiss on the check, I can’t complain. I did see the handsome makeup artist Sam Fine for 30 seconds backstage. Sorry that I couldn’t have more pics for you but cameras was off limits in 90% of the area backstage and I was super busy running around.
