Photo Shoot: Behind The Scene Pics

Thanks @hjules @smashboxartists @occmakeup & to the FAB Lori Taylor… Here are some fun behind the scene pics from yesterday photo shoot. It’s now 1 day after the blizzard here in New York. My morning started off really funny…Pink Sneakers Production should have capture this on camera, lol. I was trying to cross the street but still not a clear enough path to walk so I tried using my makeup bag to knock down some of the snow…well after swinging my bag a few times I lost my balance in went down. As I felt myself losing my balance I pulled a Mariah Carey and said to myself SHIT!!!…I braced myself to fall cute just in case someone caught me on camera, hahaaaa.
After that madness I headed to midtown, as always I arrived first. Both models were late because they got lost not being from New York. Everything was such a mess in the big city. Anna was a Russian model and Sarah was a German model, these girls knew when to turn on…luved it!!!We also shoot outside so the girls were a trooper in my book. At the end of the day we had a FAB shoot. Enjoyed working with a great team.

Let it Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

I don’t play with mother nature, when they announced a snow storm / blizzard was heading to New York I made sure I was prepared. It’s been over 13 years since I was in a blizzard here in New York. I made sure that I had lots of CARBS & COCKTAILS in my house…of course food, candles and batteries just in case. Plus, I charged my iPhone and my extra charger.
My girlfriend Wendy who lives on Long Island came to visit to keep me company. We had a great girls day…lots of talking, lots of laughing, ate, played with makeup, had a photo shoot, and had cocktails. Wendy arrived around 9:30ish am and left around 5:00 pm. Let me tell you she made it home just in time.
A fun day inside but not so fun for anyone that was stuck outside…

A Day at BIBI Salon in Harlem, New York

Many of you know I was busy working Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week. But what many of you guys may not know that I was also a special guest makeup artist at BIBI Salon in Harlem.
BIBI Salon is a new, modern gem in Harlem owned by Celebrity Hair Stylist Maisha Teacher. Maisha is a 18 year internationally veteran who specializes in healthy hair. Her favorite and only hair product line she will carry is; PHYTO. I love that Maisha has taken a chance to bring her love and passion of hair to Harlem. Now, ladies don’t have to travel so far into the city to receive a great cut, color, style and even a manicure or pedicure….she’s carrying PRITI NYC.
Maisha says she will continue to freelance but plan to bring her top clients to her new salon. While getting pamper it was good to see many FAB behind the scene faces in the industry stop by to get their tresses done. One of the video director from Essence Magazine was getting her washed, cut, and styled in a very cute short bob. One of the ladies from the NBA was getting her hair color just in time for fall. Even the FAB Jai Jai from the Nectar Bar stopped by to say hi.
With all of the new renovation ladies never have to leave out of Harlem…when you walk out of BIBI Salon you’re now ready for Harlem Fashion Row….I’ll see you in November so book your makeup services now.
