Heading to work to create beautiful makeup for L’OREAL Paris

I always get asked “What Is My Day Like” when working behind the scene at a glamxurious event such as Golden Globes Red Carpet for a major brand like L’OREAL Paris. I decided to give you a sneak peek of what we, the L’OREAL Paris Pro Team do backstage while creating red carpet hair, makeup, and nails. See all of the video on L’OREAL Paris tumblr page.

The L’OREAL Paris Makeup I Used on Project Runway Season 10 Designers

Last night like so many fashionistas around the world, I was glued to the Lifetime network to watch Season 10 of Project Runway. I was excited about being apart of the the first day, doing makeup on the designers for the Lifetime promo photo shoot for the season 10 website & for the show. Being a L’OREAL Paris Pro Makeup Artist & Beaute’ Concierge, it’s always an honor to be a part of a show I personally watch.

The three ladies that I did makeup on the first day were Beatrice Guapo, Sonjia Williams, and Buffi Jashanmal. Each girl has a totally different look so it was fun to do their makeup like what they would normally do. To create their makeup look, here is a cheat sheet of what I used from L’OREAL Paris cosmetics.
Beatrice Guapo 
On Beatrice, I wanted to keep her natural beauty, so I used makeup colors that would compliment her flawless skin.
L’OREAL Paris True Match Foundation & Powder
L’OREAL Paris Infallible 24hr Endless Pearl Eye shadow
L’OREAL Paris Infallible 24 hr Lacquer Liner in Blackest Black
L’OREAL Paris True Match Naturale Mascara in Blackest Black
L’OREAL Paris True Match Blush in Innocent Flush N3-4
l’oreal Paris Glam Bronze Bronzing Powder in Dazzling Sunlight
L’OREAL Paris Colour Riche Lipstick in Peach Fuzz
L’OREAL Paris Colour Riche leGloss in Peach Fuzz

Sonjia is shy but has a little sass in her, the blue hair says it all. So to keep her youthful I decided to go with the following items.
L’OREAL Paris True Match Foundation & Powder
L’OREAL Paris Infallible 24hr Eye shadow in Amber Rush
L’OREAL Paris Infallible Lacquer Liner in Blackest Black
L’OREAL Paris Voluminious Smoldering Liner in Black

Buffi, is my Sporty Spice meets Lady Gaga, she wanted her signature bold makeup look. So, I gave it to her.
