Bloggers have you ever been unmotivated to write? Sure you have, so what motivate you to start up again? For me, being on a list of 15 Awesome People To Follow During The Golden Globe Awards keeps me going every time I start procrastinating. To me, it’s such a major opportunity to be placed on this list so I can’t let the people down who voted me a spot on here.
Gotta go, I’m going to get my set up together for tonight Golden Globes so I’ll have some great pics during the show to talk about.
Last week I have such a great time doing a L’OREAL Paris event for the Project Runway Electric Fantasie Limited Edition Makeup Collection at Duane Reade. This event they actually pulled out the red carpet…literally. This season collection is to die for that I’m sure it will sell out really fast.
Artsy Muse, Enchanted Queen, Seductive Empress, & Wise Mystic are the names of the collection.
The collection that spoke most to me and the one that I was obsessed with is called Wise Mystic because of the lipstick and lip gloss shade. I luv the iridescent lip gloss, it looks great by itself, with the lipstick, or any lipstick shade.
Two of the invited bloggers that I got to do makeup on were Tineey and Style Island. Read their insight about this GLAMXURIOUS event on their blog.
Putting on The Wise Mystic Collection on Tineey…we put have on the same collection.
Style Island is wearing The Artsy Muse Collection…the lipgloss is everything!

I was very excited about being a part of the makeup glam squad that was brought in for STRUT Mom’s 1st Annual Fashion Show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. It was cool to do makeup on real women that look like me, my age and who are mothers versus the traditional young models who are her daughter’s age. The moms were professional career women, popular female bloggers, and soon to be moms.
The fashion show was hosted by Supermodel and cosmetics owner Iman, who is also a mother of two. I’m a mother of 2 teens and so I understands how hard it is to parent kids with a busy schedule as i travels a lot with her work. My support system is my husband, SKYPE and writing on my blog plays a big role when on the road with her family.
Backstage I was one of 10 makeup artists that gave these fashionable moms each flawless individual looks. My makeup area consisted of a full table of makeup goodies. Key items that all moms need for a full proof makeup look is what I packed my makeup kit with. One of my favorite items is Maya Water Facial Mist to hydrate and rejuvenate my overwhelmed moms. I wanted the moms to not look like they look everyday, so I gave them a glamxurious look to play up the moment. All moms need makeup items that are quick but will last all day so I selected L’OREAL Paris HIP Cream eyeliners, L’OREAL Paris Waterproof Voluminious mascara, and L’OREAL Paris Infallible 8hr leGloss. But an absolute must have that all moms need is concealer, so I selected one of my top concealers from ALCONE.
There were so many amazing highlights from STRUT: The Fashionable Mom Fashion Show but my favorite was getting to bond backstage with the gorgeous Iman who on this day wanted to not be a supermodel but a supermom. After a fun filled day Kelly and I went to grab a bite at Cafe Fiorello’s across the street from the Lincoln Center.
