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

Just getting back from working at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. So on this season of Project Runway 11, I was only able to work on the finale during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. As usual our call time was at 4am so I never sleep, I stay up after working because I’m commuting from Connecticut that I have to drive in. Before leaving I got the house ready for the big Nor’easter that we, the Tri-State were getting later this afternoon. So if I get stuck in the city the kids would have food & heat.

I was very excited about this seeing designer Sammy B because I got to work with her a year ago in Harlem for Harlem’s Fashion Row photo shoot. Like many people who meet & work with her, I fell in luv with Sammy B. I was also excited about meeting two other designers, Stanley Hudson & Michelle Lesniak Franklin. I was praying that I get to do the makeup for their models. Stanley collection was very old era meet new era classy women. Stanley had these rings that had my names written all over them. Michelle clothing mesmerize me that I couldn’t even do my work, I kept looking at the all her models that kept coming in. I was Christmas shopping in my head. I ended up with getting two of Patricia models in one of Stanley model.

I started my morning with a request from Anita Hill for hair & makeup at the Entertainment Weekly Magazine Lounge inside L’OREAL Paris Suite. Once done one of my favorite ladies, Mora, Director Of Public Relations came at 10:00am to escort me over to The Skylodge hotel. This will be my first time meeting and working with L’OREAL Paris beauty blogger Kandee Johnson. When I arrived to the room I was greeted by Kandee mom and her precious daughter. Kandee came out and we clicked right away…after determining we are both huggers. 
Mora shared with me what Kandee day was going to be like and the look that was needed. Since Kandee was going to be doing video with The Sundance Channel I knew I had to pop her makeup just a little. I luved, luved, luved, her face. What a great canvas to work on, I told our VP of Public Relations later that I would like for Kandee to be my muse. Because she  wears makeup very well. 
On Kandee eyes, I used a forest green shadow along with the navy lacquer liner  to create a day smokey eye

How I Created A Glossy Smokey Eye With L’OREAL Paris

Today assignment with Thor Equities was really fun and after talking with Garrett about the look he wanted for the 5 models I knew which L’OREAL Paris products to use to create the smokey eye. I selected makeup from L’OREAL Paris Infallible Never Fail Makeup Collection because I needed the models makeup to last the entire evening. For the glossy lacquer look I selected the gel liner. It’s very easy to apply and it goes on smooth. See what other items I used to create my glamxurious smokey eye.
