Fashion: Project Runway Designer Custom Ready To Wear Winter Outer Garment

Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis wearing a custom piece from designer Project Runway Beatrice Guapo
It’s that time of the year to pull out the winter clothes with one item being my favorite to wear; PONCHOS. I’m a big fan of ponchos and when I shared with Project Runway designer Beatrice Guapo from Season 10 that I wanted something fun, yet fashionable to wear at Sundance Film Festival, she designed me this great piece. I wanted tribal pattern, a pop of color, plus something that would look fab with my faux fur russian ushanka hat & goggles. Beatrice nailed it with adding faux fur on the bottom giving it a little glam, a little of me. I’m so in love with this poncho because it goes with everything and I can dress it up or down and it’s a custom poncho just for me.

Hanging Out With My Favorite French Girl…Garance Doré

I always enjoy going to @GaranceDoré home to do her makeup. She’s elegant, funny, and luv to chat makeup. Upon my arrival she was doing her own nails. Once her nails dry she wanted to give me a proper greeting which means a hug and cheek to cheek bisou. I unpack all my L’OREAL Paris makeup goodies, and asked about what fab event she was getting herself into so I’ll know how to prep her face. 

I decided to keep her makeup look clean & natural. Today it was all about showing her skin. I couldn’t wait to use some of L’OREAL Paris new items on her like my favorite; Revitalift Miracle Blur and True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer. Of course I reached for my oldies but goodies: HiP high intensity pigments Concentrated Shadow Duos in Shady, HiP high intensity pigments Bright Shadow Duos in Flare, and Glam bronze pressed bronzing powder. All done…magnifique!!!

Photo time…just finished doing Garance Dore makeup…effortless. One day I will beat that face, I just don’t know when, lol.

Getting Fashion Blogger Garance Doré Ready For The CFDA

Garance Dore and Scott Schuman on the red carpet at CFDA
I’ve been blessed to have done makeup on many celebrities like the Kardashians, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Angela Bassett, and Melissa Leo just to name a few. Each time, I was excited to have my makeup brushes touch recognizable women in the industry. Yesterday though, I was just as elated but the feeling was a little different. It was more of an honor. To be a part of a major moment in the life of Garance Dore, highly recognized fashion and style blogger. She and boyfriend fellow blogger Scott Schuman, were receiving  the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Eugenia Sheppard Media Award. The CFDA is an prestigious organization honoring designers and significant contributions to the fashion industry. It’s like the Oscars for the fashion industry. This is the first time this award will be given to a non traditional media person. It also set a precedence about the influence and importance of blogs. Like so many woman all over the world, I to am a fan of Garance Dore, which is maybe why it’s was such a special evening for me. To be a part of such a monumental evening with her and Scott was nothing short of amazing. 
While Melissa and I set up, Garance put on music from Lana Del Rey. Scott went out to get Garance her favorite chocolate and he left us girls alone while he got ready. She shared with us that she was happy that a good friend Pharrell Williams would be presenting both her and Scott with the award. 
Garance selected this style for her hair inspiration

Waiting for Garance so Melissa & I have our own street style moment 

Last week Garance shared with hairstylist Melissa Paldino and me the look she wanted for tonight. Because Garance doesn’t wear a lot of makeup and in my mind I wanted to go really glam with red lips and lashes, lol. But I knew that would take her out of her comfort zone, so the makeup look that we decided on was a strong eyes and sheer cherry lips. I selected L’OREAL Paris voluminous waterproof mascara in carbon black. Wasn’t sure if she would shed a tear when she got on stage to accept her award so I played it safe. Also, I chose carbon black because I really wanted to give her the darkness in her eyes without using black eye shadow to smoke her eyes out. I used L’OREAL Paris Infallible 24hr eye shadows because I wanted her color to stay put for the evening and I knew those shadows would do just that. 

All of my L’OREAL Paris makeup is laid out and ready to be used on Garance

A Makeup Tip With Fashion Blogger Garance Doré

When you put together a popular fashion/style blogger and a industry makeup artist what do they talk about? Everything from fashion, makeup and more makeup. Garance would ask me questions about makeup and I would do the same. Garance and I talk so much so I really don’t remember how we got on this cool makeup tip.
I shared that my personal makeup secret was; I like using Starbucks coffee brown recycle napkins to blot my face with. I have very oily skin, I find that the napkins works best for me, better than any blotting / rice paper could ever. The fibers used in the napkins helps to absorb the oil on my face leaving it with a matte finish. Garance luved it!
