Beauty: Glamour Magazine Event From The Eyes Of A Makeup Artist

http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();

I looked forward to this night with L’OREAL Paris and Glamour Magazine because it’s an assignment that I get to not just do hair and makeup but I get to be in the presence of many outstanding women. 
Tonight I bring you with me to see what I experienced when I step foot in Carnegie Hall. When I walked into the green room right behind the stage the first person I layed eyes on was Anna Wintour and the first person that sat in my makeup chair was Shonda Rhimes. Can I just say I was crying in the inside, thanking god for this opportunity. After that everything else was a blur so I’m glad I have these pictures for proof that I was there. Because of my lupus I now suffer with pleurisy. Hours before the event I was suffering with my lungs, my chest cavity was inflammed. Fluid leaked causing these horrible chest pains. I took 3 ibuprofen in head to the city from Connecticut. I sat on the train for 2hrs, I talked to god to asked him to allow me to make it to the event safe with no more pain. Guess what…I made it!

Beauty News: The Makeup Look I Created For Hillary Clinton At Glamour Magazine Women Of The Year Award

For the second half of 2013 Glamour Magazine “Women Of The Year” Award I was selected a week before that I would be brought over to the back green room by the stage to do makeup on a select group of celebrities. My escort came up to get me around 6:30pm to help bring me to my second location inside Carnegie Hall. I was never told who I would be doing makeup on so I made sure my L’OREAL Paris makeup vanity was well stock with a lot of my favorite items. 
When I saw a few secret services and a staff entering thanks to Scandal TV show I knew the guest was someone in the political field. What I didn’t know was it would be Mrs. Hillary Clinton walking through the door.

To get the makeup look that I gave Hillary Clinton here is the recipe of what I used. The makeup look I wanted to give Mrs. Clinton was a quick effortless makeup look. I wanted her skin to show, not aging her with heavy foundation. I mix L’OREAL Paris RevitaLift Triple Power and L’OREAL Paris Miracle Blur together on my palette. For her skin I wanted her to have a luminous look on stage so I selected L’OREAL Paris Magic Lumi and L’OREAL Paris True Match Lumi Foundation. Once again I mixed this cocktail together. With a large powder brush I dust her face with L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder. On her eyes I selected L’OREAL Paris HIP Matte Shadow Duo in Dashing. I wanted the matte shade of the pink eye shadow to pop against her now luminous face. I then used L’OREAL Paris Infallible Lacquer 24H liner in Dark Slate. While still wet I apply the dark shade eye shadow on top of the Dark Slate liner from the Dashing duo to soften the liner. Also a quick way to give her color without going to trendy. With a blush brush I used L’OREAL Paris True Match Blush in Apricot Kiss to warm up her skin. On her lips I prep them with L’OREAL Paris Colour Riche Lip Balm in Caring Coral. With a lip brush I applied L’OREAL Paris Colour Riche Lipstick in Tropical Coral then topped it off with L’OREAL Paris Colour Riche leGloss in Saucy Mauve. A quick easy step to getting a polish makeup look.
