Miss My Makeup Studio & Beauty Bar

I remember the first day Tamicha Roberts (my personal assistant) and I found this storefront. It would be my second location makeup store in New Orleans. When we walked in I fell in love without taking two steps. The exposed brick walls, high ceilings, concrete floors, and large windows I knew I had to have all 2400sq ft of it. I didn’t care how much it would cost I just knew that this was going to be mine. Tamicha and I started coming up with ideas, laughing as we each would yell out something fabulous.
I had so many amazing things happen to me there. I worked on many beautiful women of New Orleans as well as celebrities and out-of-towners. I threw many parties and held my most popular in successful Friday Makeup & Martini’s days that its still popular amongst nightclub promoters in New Orleans.
My life has completely changed since August 2005. The last time I saw it I didn’t recognize it. It cost me so much heartache with insurance companies, alarm companies, entergy, etc. but I still miss it & my clientele off 600 plus women. I’ve grown as a makeup artists. been bless to work with so many people, companies, events, TV shows, fashion shows, etc.
This picture of my studio made me stop in smile….Inside The Life Of A Makeup Artist!

Now that makeup has been airbrushed on with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics the model is waiting for hair. As she’s wait patiently for hair I’m cleaning my tools so I can be ready for makeup look 2. The first look is all about the bright yummy pink lips from OCC. It’s a new lip tar call Yaoi, an obnoxious true fuchsia metallic shade. On her eyes, I sprayed her with OCC loose colour pigment in Clove, a champagne shimmer. The model was channeling the iconic and fabulous music artist Jody Watley from the 80’s with her beautiful head of natural hair. So I gave the model a very strong dark brows that Jody use to rock back in the days.  I was out of my favorite Urban Decay lashes in Black Velvet so I used the Baby Doll strip lashes on her. The rest of her face is all about strong highlighting & contouring. Once hair is done, I’ll probably tweak her makeup a little more. For now it’s all about GLAMXURIOUS!!!!

Urban Decay Bombshell Lashes For LUXHAIR Models

Yesterday I worked my dream assignment for #LUXHAIR at Cult Studios. Hair was everywhere, short hair, long hair, blonde wigs, red wigs, black wigs, that I could not concentrate, I was definitely in la la world. The event showcased the new wig collections of Sherrie Shepherd, Tabatha Coffey, and Daisy Fuentes. 
I worked on three stunning models that I’m a big fan of; Rashida Harris, Alisha Giles, and Stephanie Slick. Kristi, one of my many favorite ladies at Alison Brod PR provided strip lashes from Urban Decay cosmetics. The style the client wanted on the models were called BLACK VELVET. I think these lashes may have been the most magnificent pair of strip lashes I have ever laid my eyes on. I was in love with how lavish the hairs were to say they are of synthetic fibers leaving the models with a flirty look. I was very impressed with how fast the iridescent latex free adhesive dries great for any woman who need the glue to dry fast and clear. 
So I need to be stock with these bombshell lashes in my makeup kit daily and of course especially for my next assignment, Essence Music Festival that takes place next week in New Orleans.

Fun Sultry Photo Shoot in Soho

I had the pleasure of working with Jade of Jades today, a talented and gorgeous young woman who sings & act. She has done Broadway shows and sing background with music artist Solange Knowles. Jade is working on new pictures and asked if I could help her out. Nyla, the hairstylist did a great job with Jade’s hair, luv the fishtail.
Jade had a few different looks that she wanted me to create but because I was having a vertigo attack all day I couldn’t be as creative as I would have normally. But with a pretty canvas to work on I could have painted her with my eyes close. 
My makeup of choice on this shoot was: Inglot, Stila, OCC, and L’OREAL Paris.

Destination Wedding Makeup: Have Luminous Lashes on W-Day

written by Connecticut / New York Celebrity Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

A fun and glamxurious way to bring out the color in your eyes on your wedding day is with L’OREAL Double Extend Illuminator Mascara. This is a nice treat for a day or destination bride who prefers to wear very minimum makeup, leaving her eyes to be the main focus.

There are two very easy steps that any bride can accomplish. First, extend and thicken your lashes with the mascara applicator brush. The black mascara is infused with a hint of color that adds volume and length to your lashes. Two, illuminate your lashes with the sphere tip brush by applying the top base coat that has the lighted reflecting pearls to highlight your eye color. Feel flirty and bat those illuminated lashes knowing everyone will see you as you walk down the aisle.

*BLACK COLOR FOR BLUE EYES
*BLACK BRONZE FOR GREEN EYES
*BLACK QUARTZ FOR BROWN EYES
*BLACK CRYSTAL FOR ALL EYES
