My Sizzling Summer In Harlem Was the Theme of The Photoshoot

Maisha Teacher, owner of Bibi Salon NYC called and asked if I was available to do makeup for her photo shoot. The shoot story board was about trendy young adults in Harlem during the summer. I was elated about being a part. We got everyone ready at the salon then headed over to The Cove Lounge NYC on Lenox for the actual shoot. Maisha put together a great glam squad, we all craved each other work that it made for a great shoot with so much fun on set.
Here are lots of fun behind the scene pics.

Project Runway Makeup Collection Gets Glam At Central Park

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js _uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

Thursday I was schedule to do makeup applications at BIBI Salon NYC in Harlem. I knew I wanted to use the L’OREAL PARIS & Project Runway exclusive makeup collection. I really love the collection a lot and have been using it on assignments. 

One of the ladies Barbara wanted something glamxurious but natural.   I selected something fun and wanted to give her a little pop to the eyes since Barbara was attending Central Park AUTUMN IN THE PARK: An Evening of Cocktails, Dinner, and Dancing.
 

On Barbara I used from the L’OREAL PARIS USA & Project Runway exclusive collection:

#415 CHARMING COCKATOO’S GAZE eye shadow palette
#225 WATCHFUL OWL’S blush
#785 SULTRY RAVEN’S POUT lipstick

(not from the Project Runway collection) 
L’OREAL PARIS COLOUR RICHE leGloss in Nude Touch *the same color I used on Jennifer Aniston for Glamour Magazine “Women of The Year”

So Barbara could touch up her lips I gave her my last L’OREAL PARIS USA leGloss in Nude Touch

Barbara and her husband also made it on Patrick Mc Mullan page that evening…how fabulous is that!!!!

On Monday evening actress Anna Maria Horsford showcased her jewelry trunk show in Harlem at BiBi Salon NYC from 7pm-9pm.
I was blessed to get a sneak peak of her fabulous line last month at the Essence Music Festival VIP Lounge. Anna was intown to promote the new comedy series “REED BETWEEN THE LINES” on BET Television. She wore two of her pieces that caught my eye; a metal iron piece ring bracelet. This piece was definitely something I would wear and a WOW factor for me a least. So when I received my invite I knew I had to attend to see what other amazing pieces she would showcase.
Many of you may remember actress Anna Maria Horsforsd from her most popular character “Thelma Frye” on AMEN and of course her signature line: DADDY! Anna also played Betty Jones the mother of Craig Jones in the movie Friday & Friday After Next. Anna also played the security guard Dee Baxter on The Wayans Bros, she was also in The Nutty Professor II;The Klumps, St. Elmo’s Fire, Set It Off, and numerous movies & TV series.

This is another great piece I have my eyes on
