Beauty: Glamour Magazine Event From The Eyes Of A Makeup Artist

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

I looked forward to this night with L’OREAL Paris and Glamour Magazine because it’s an assignment that I get to not just do hair and makeup but I get to be in the presence of many outstanding women. 
Tonight I bring you with me to see what I experienced when I step foot in Carnegie Hall. When I walked into the green room right behind the stage the first person I layed eyes on was Anna Wintour and the first person that sat in my makeup chair was Shonda Rhimes. Can I just say I was crying in the inside, thanking god for this opportunity. After that everything else was a blur so I’m glad I have these pictures for proof that I was there. Because of my lupus I now suffer with pleurisy. Hours before the event I was suffering with my lungs, my chest cavity was inflammed. Fluid leaked causing these horrible chest pains. I took 3 ibuprofen in head to the city from Connecticut. I sat on the train for 2hrs, I talked to god to asked him to allow me to make it to the event safe with no more pain. Guess what…I made it!
