My agent called me about doing a fun charity event in New Jersey for fashionista Angela Simmons. Angela Simmons & her business partner Kerri Berson put together their 1st Annual Boys & Girls Club event called GIRLTALK. Being that I always luv giving back to kids especially girls I jumped on board right away.
The event was glamxurious with; hair, makeup, nails, a fashion show ending with a concert from DIGGY. DJ Lyve kept everyone dancing all day, throwing in Angela & Kerri favorite song “GIRLS” by Beyonce. I brought my 21 year old daughter Envy with me to help me do the glitter tattoo which was a hit! I was also able to give each girl a L’OREAL Paris leGloss to add to the gift bags that Henri Bendi donated.
Before this fabulous event started I got both Angela Simmons & Kerri Berson makeup ready. Here is my pinterest link of what I used on Angela to keep her makeup bronzed & youthful. I wanted her makeup to pop for all the pictures that everyone would take but used items that I would last all day as she run around with the girls, that she did. Angela did a lot of dancing, jumping rope, she even walked the runway with the girls. I’m so proud of both Angela & Kerri as I look forward to being a part of next year glam squad.
