Hennessy Models Getting Glamxurious For The Diva Lounge & Carol’s Daughter Event

I’m wearing KA’OIR Cosmetics Lipstick in Invisible 

My first assignment during Essence Music Festival in New Orleans was with Hennessy. The Diva Lounge partnered with Carol’s Daughter for a swanky reception on South Peters to honor four notable females in Louisiana. Aria & Nicole reached out to me to be a part of giving the Hennessy models my signature glamxurious makeup look. Nicole set up a suite for me at the International House Hotel so I could do makeup on the models. As usual I brought tons of yummy makeup with me and a variety of brands to choose from. But once I spoke with Nicole I knew the delicious paletter that I was going to use. I wanted the girls to all have a consistent look. This is actually what I normally do with Hennessy for their New York events. The makeup palette I decided to work with were shades that I knew that would look gorgeous on all the boogie down brown skin tones.

Update on O Magazine vs Carol’s Daughter

Just in case you didn't read the first blog while on tour I received a call from Lisa Price people about booking me to do the makeup for Mrs. Lisa Price of Carol's Daughter. The event is for the grand opening of the Macy's and I guess they will be carrying her line there.

The date they needed me for was the same dates that I will be in San Francisco working Oprah/0 Magazine event. How crazy right, two well know African American women needing me at the same time.

So, I explained to Robin that I fly out on Friday at 5:17 pm so I would be able to do Lisa Price makeup if it's an early call time or the afternoon. But, on Saturday I would not be able to take the assignment. Well, I have not heard back from since last week.

Today, I received the email and she said Lisa Price would need me at 4:30pm so it's not going to work. Shit, I was hoping that it would. Robin did say they are always in need of a great makeup artist in that they will be in touch for other dates.

So, it looks like Oprah won this one. The Oprah assignment is changing everyday for the best. I am getting ready to go to Bacco restaurant to meet Beth Ann and do a walk through for the W hotel fashion show next week, Wednesday and Thursday. Then I have the photo shoot on Friday, Halloween day at the W hotel with “Destination I Do magazine”.

So I have a lot to catch you all up on. Still have not made it to my studio yet but I hope to do that today. Well, I have to cuz David the owner of OCC Makeup needs me to send him a list of makeup that I will need for the fashion show.
