Lifetime Project Runway Photo Shoot for Season 10

The actually Project Runway set…iDIE
It’s always cool to work assignments on TV shows that you actually watch. Project Runway is one of those shows that I LOVE and I have always enjoyed doing makeup for Project Runway. Today’s assignment was a little different. It’s the photo shoot of the season 10 designers for the official Lifetime Project Runway page. The three designers that I worked with were: Buffi Jashanmal from Dubai, Sonjia Williams from Boston, and Beatrice Guapo from San Diego. I loved them. All three had different personalities and style. I can’t wait to see what the clothes they design on the show will look like. Buffi and I made a pack that we will reunite at the finale show and switched personal gifts. Buffi gave me a lipstick pen and I gave Buffi a L’OREAL Paris leGloss. So just like all Project Runway fans, I will be at home cheering on the designers seeing who will MAKE IT WORK.

A Makeup Tip With Fashion Blogger Garance Doré

When you put together a popular fashion/style blogger and a industry makeup artist what do they talk about? Everything from fashion, makeup and more makeup. Garance would ask me questions about makeup and I would do the same. Garance and I talk so much so I really don’t remember how we got on this cool makeup tip.
I shared that my personal makeup secret was; I like using Starbucks coffee brown recycle napkins to blot my face with. I have very oily skin, I find that the napkins works best for me, better than any blotting / rice paper could ever. The fibers used in the napkins helps to absorb the oil on my face leaving it with a matte finish. Garance luved it!

Men’s Grooming: How I Acheive Robert Redford Look Using L’OREAL Paris

This year highlight at Sundance Film Festival 2012 was working with the talented, handsome actor and Founder of Sundance Film Festival,  Robert Redford.  Men are not always consistent about taking care of their skin but Mr. Redford understands how important it is to maintain collagen and elastin in his skin appearance. A few key items that I used on Mr. Redford were from L’OREAL PARIS to achieve his classic look.

Because Redford would be busy speaking at panels and doing interviews, I knew sleep was not happening during the festival so I made sure that I had my L’OREAL Paris Men’s Expert Hydra-Energetic Cold Eye Roller

The eye roller has Vitamin C and Caffeine so it gives an instant refreshing look to dark under eyes or puffiness. On his skin I used L’OREAL Paris Men’s Expert Vita Lift SPF 15 Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer

This product contains retinol so it hydrates the skin leaving it glowing and smooth.  Redford has amazing thick hair, so I used L’OREAL Paris Studio Line “Out of Bed Texturizer” on his hair to achieve the effortless messy hair look that Redford likes

So guys, step it up, take a little time to pamper yourself and your skin if you want to maintain THAT’S HOT title.

NBA All Star 2011 Day 3-Behind The Scenes

working with Joanne from BackBeats
enjoying working with this young lady she lets me beat her face how ever I want.

the entire backbeats group is enjoying their glam time

these are the colors that I am doing on all 42 dancers today including NBA Fan Patrol dancers and Rihanna dancers. the reason why i selected this look was due to the colors the girls were going to wear and for the Rihanna performance the look had to also go with all black. A clean simple fast look that will pop on camera. Silver glitter on the eyelids only and pink lips works eveytime.

as you can see i work with marcie a lot

Kayte is another NBA Fan Patrol dancer that I work a lot with
this young lady is from rihanna camp and when she walked in i knew the occ pink lip tar was going to work perfect for her. because she plays the violin her look could be a little different so i gave ms diva a strong eye. because she is so pale that the no makeup look would just wash her completely out on camera.
debra getting bryan camera ready
  rihanna crew is in the dressing room now. bryan is one of rihanna dancers. he’s a riot!!!

need touch up for the group shot, lol
rihanna is about to perform. you don’t even wanna know how crazy this was!!!!!
