Inside The Life Of A Makeup Artist On Makeup Monday

A great way to kick off Makeup Monday is having Connecticut (Danbury, Bethel, Brookfield, Ridgefield, New Milford, Newtown, and Redding) newspaper The News Time come over to my home to interview me about, what else…makeup makeup makeup! I had a fun time with Sybil chatting it up about summer makeup, everyday makeup, and makeup for mature woman. Sybil wanted to catch me in my daily routine of doing my hair and makeup in my room. Can’t wait to see what pictures Cheryl the photographer end up using for the article.

There are so many variety type of lashes on the market; strips, individual, clusters, minx, and semi permanent. Fake lashes are available in many colors, lengths, shapes and sizes. The two main lash colors are black and soft brown. The great thing about these inexpensive gems is that they can be reused. Just store them in their original packaging to help retain their shape.

A bride’s eyes tell the story of her wedding, and lashes accentuate that memorable tale. A wedding is the whimsical fantasy for all women and what bride is complete without her bold beautiful lashes. Here are the key items you will need to apply these great finishers.

To apply your fake eyelashes you will need the following item;

Nude Lips For Your Wedding Day

Many of our favorite celebrities have graced magazines pages wearing a nude lip color. Seductive nude lips are always in season for weddings and brides can be just as glamuxrious as color stained lips, especially when paired with a dramatic or smoky eye.

When wearing a pale pout, you have to care for your lips making sure their moisturized to be sure it will wear well and look smooth and kissable. I prefer to use Sara Happ lip scrub to remove extra dry skin but a basic soft toothbrush and petroleum jelly can also do the trick. I apply a foundation or a concealer completely over the lip. This way, I have a fresh canvas and can outline the lip to the shape I like. When selecting the correct shade in the nude family I usually select; Pinks for fair and medium skin, and beige for medium dark to darker skin. I then apply Sara Happ lip slip balm to keep the lips hydrated.

Go flesh toned on the lips whether it’s cream, matte, or glossy and you will be noticeable on your wedding day.

Celebrity Makeup Artist Rocks Out Ed Hardy Designers during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami


(MIAMI) – Jul 23, 2009 – Many of us saw, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, a pretty blinged out girl with long black locks walking around the cabana & tents at the Raleigh Hotel, at the local news station, and backstage at the True Religion & Ed Hardy swimwear fashion show toting a pink makeup kit and wondering, WHO’S THAT GIRL? Not many people knew that this hidden gem, Celebrity Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis was backstage rocking out Creative Director for Sea and Sun Swimwear Fawn Arthur, Designer Angela Avanesyan and Assistant Designer Heather Bothwell from Ed Hardy.


Gomez-Duplessis was hired to work personally with the Ed Hardy team all weekend during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. Everyone was aware that Makeup Forever Cosmetics was the sponsor makeup company, but backstage this glam Makeup Artist was working side by side with the Makeup Forever makeup team. Gomez-Duplessis said she did get a lot of side eye looks from the others makeup artist mainly because they didn’t know who hired her. They were confused about her being backstage working on the designers.


The first day she did hair and makeup on Fawn Arthur at The Fontainebleau Hotel at 6am for her interview with the South Florida Today show on the CW. Gomez-Duplessis also worked with 3 models from the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency getting them ready at the news station. Later that morning, they headed over to NBC 6 Miami for another segment about the Ed Hardy swimwear line. Gomez-Duplessis said she gave all the girls a sun kissed beach look and wanted their hair to be soft but still sexy. She didn’t want to overpower the swimwear by using fake lashes and lots of bright eye colors. For the True Religion show, Gomez-Duplessis kept the designers makeup neutral especially Arthur’s because Gomez-Duplessis said “she has such a great face that I didn’t want to hide it.” But for the Ed Hardy fashion show Gomez-Duplessis said “I want to have fun, simply because it’s Ed Hardy and I’m in Miami”, she laughs. So, she gave all the girls rock stars eyes using fun colors and lots of black eye shadow.
