Destination Wedding In New Orleans with my Favorite New Jersey Couple

5am at the airport, ready to go to sleep
This wedding was a little different because it was more of a Wedding Anniversary Celebration of 10 years for Susan & Stan. I was booked for the wedding but have been working with Susan and her girlfriends a lot both here in New York & New Orleans. So once Susan shared me with me the date I locked it in my books because I couldn’t miss it this time around. http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

I arrived in New Orleans on Friday morning met up with Susan to go over the details. So on Friday I enjoyed my time in New Orleans before turning in early. Saturday was definitely a magical day, I turned my room at the W Hotel French Quarter into my mini makeup room. Susan, Kecia and Miss Baley came up to get ready then took the shuttle bus over to Cafe Amelie. This beautiful in lush courtyard was a perfect place for this wonderful ceremony. After the celebration we went over to Kingfish for the after party for more drinks and celebrating.

Wedding: Timeless Classic Outdoor Makeup Look At Trump Country Club

On Saturday I went to Bedminster, NJ to do makeup for a New York model at the beautiful property at Trump National Golf Club. It was a 2 hour drive from Connecticut but with my no sense of directions it took me an extra 45 mins. I got lost a few times, pulled up to the wrong house…don’t ask, and I had to battle with a deer on the road, lol. So my start was a little exciting.

Because both Vanessa & I had really busy schedule we didn’t get a chance to do a bridal consultation. Vanessa was pleased with my work from what she saw as well Shida, one of her bridesmaid speaking highly of me. We did talk over the phone, Vanessa shared with me what she wanted to look like. After finally meeting her I knew that I didn’t want her to look trendy but more pretty. Because she’s a model she have worn so many runway makeup looks so I decided to play with soft champagne, browns, and pinks. Keeping her makeup look timeless & classic. Of course I used lots of waterproof makeup & stay all day products since she was having the ceremony outdoor. 

What a nice spread for the wedding party
Luv Donald Trump

New York Bridal Beauty With L’OREAL Paris USA

I started my day earlier in Chelsea doing makeup at designer Cesar Galindo show for New York Fashion Week. I end my day on the Upper East Side doing bridal makeup at L’OREAL Paris Cathedral with Tiffany who is also a L’OREAL Paris Makeup Artist. The event was from 5-8pm and the register brides received a makeup consultant, complimentary bridal makeup application, and a goody bag from L’OREAL Paris. It’s always a treat when brides from Connecticut attend my events in New York. 
For a softer eye I lined her eyes with L’OREAL Paris Infallible 24hr Eye Shadow In  Eternal Black. 
The L’OREAL Paris products I used to create the look. The only thing missing is the L’OREAL Paris Voluminous Power Volume 24hr mascara that the bride get to keep.

Wedding Day Blues: Something Borrow Something Blue


As young girls, we grew up hearing “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue.” Well, that something blue will be one of the new trends in 2012 for brides. Bright and bold Cobalt blue will be seen more at weddings in the flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses, brides’ Christian Louboutin shoes and especially stunningly resplendant eye shadows.


At a recent bridal photo shoot, I decided to play with a L’OREAL HIP DUO blue eye shadow named Forgiven that can be used in a more smoky way. Remember when wearing a strong eye, you should keep the lip color very light and I went with NYX Cosmetics Diamond Sparkle lipstick in Beige Sparkle. There are many brands offering various shades of brilliant blue eyeshadows to achieve a smoky blue eye on your wedding day. Here’s a cheat sheet to some of my favorite shades of blues that you can select from.
L’OREAL Paris HIP Eyeshadow in Forgiven
So brides, don’t stress because your something blue doesn’t have to be a family heirloom, a gift from your mom, or a hidden garter anymore. It can be glamxuriously worn down the aisle. What was your something blue on your wedding day?
