My first assignment during Essence Music Festival in New Orleans was with Hennessy. The Diva Lounge partnered with Carol’s Daughter for a swanky reception on South Peters to honor four notable females in Louisiana. Aria & Nicole reached out to me to be a part of giving the Hennessy models my signature glamxurious makeup look. Nicole set up a suite for me at the International House Hotel so I could do makeup on the models. As usual I brought tons of yummy makeup with me and a variety of brands to choose from. But once I spoke with Nicole I knew the delicious paletter that I was going to use. I wanted the girls to all have a consistent look. This is actually what I normally do with Hennessy for their New York events. The makeup palette I decided to work with were shades that I knew that would look gorgeous on all the boogie down brown skin tones.
