HBO Girls After Party In New York Was Fabulous

Whether it’s Jay-Z version: I love girls, girls, girls, girls

Yo put your number on this paper cause I would love to date ya
Holla at ya when I come off tour, yeah
Or Mötley Crüe: Girls girls girls
Long legs and burgundy lips
Girls
Dancin’ down on sunset strip
Girls
Red lips, fingertips

One thing is for sure, I can’t wait to see what my girl Lena Dunham and her crew has in store this Sunday night on HBO Girls. 


Monday night I was excited about doing makeup with L’OREAL Paris at the HBO Girls Premier After Party at the beautiful American Museum Of History in New York. This party was the best way to kick off the new year. Ain’t no party like a HBO Girls Party! See for yourself.

Now this is how you bring your hair tools to set…Absolute Hot 4 & 1 is from the Nicka K NY family
Luv working with Chef Gina Keatley….she know her food and luv a sultry eye. 
I’m obsessed with how her makeup came out…flawless…those high shine lips are Crystal Shine Lipgloss from Nicka K  NY. Thanks to SEXYHAIR I was able to give Gina her signature pompadour  hair style.
This fab young lady is Constance Pulsfier, Dukan Diet brand ambassador and I’m going to give her a fresh makeup look & playful hair.
I really enjoyed working with Constance, doing both hair & makeup on her. She lost over 200lbs

Project Runway: Backstage Getting Models Glamxurious With L’OREAL Paris

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.

Hanging Out With My Favorite French Girl…Garance Doré

I always enjoy going to @GaranceDoré home to do her makeup. She’s elegant, funny, and luv to chat makeup. Upon my arrival she was doing her own nails. Once her nails dry she wanted to give me a proper greeting which means a hug and cheek to cheek bisou. I unpack all my L’OREAL Paris makeup goodies, and asked about what fab event she was getting herself into so I’ll know how to prep her face. 

I decided to keep her makeup look clean & natural. Today it was all about showing her skin. I couldn’t wait to use some of L’OREAL Paris new items on her like my favorite; Revitalift Miracle Blur and True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer. Of course I reached for my oldies but goodies: HiP high intensity pigments Concentrated Shadow Duos in Shady, HiP high intensity pigments Bright Shadow Duos in Flare, and Glam bronze pressed bronzing powder. All done…magnifique!!!

Photo time…just finished doing Garance Dore makeup…effortless. One day I will beat that face, I just don’t know when, lol.
All my L’OREAL Paris makeup goodies that I used on Garance Dore for her photoshoot.

L’OREAL Paris New Hidden Gem: Miracle Blur For Instant Smooth Skin

Now days everyone has a favorite filter they like using on their phones after taking pictures to create a smooth face because they dislike the way their skin looks. The one thing many girls and women have in common when it comes to wearing makeup is that it exposes their flaws. This a big challenge when choosing makeup because you don’t want to showcase the uneven skin, acne, dewy skin, winkles, or any other problems. 
Well ladies, L’OREAL Paris has come up with the best product ever to give you a flawless photoshop look. It is called RevitaLift MIRACLE BLUR. This wonderful product instantly erases the look of pores, wrinkles, uneven skin, and fine lines leaving it looking and feeling velvety smooth all day. So what is Miracle Blur? It is not a primer, it is not a moisturizer, and it is not a tinted moisturizer. It is this amazing instant skin smoother, the first of its kind, and L’OREAL Paris is the first makeup brand to come up with it.
When using it, I like to apply it both on my male and female clients when on set. I apply a moisturizer first on my client followed by Miracle Blur. For women with great skin, using it alone will give a matte finish. I also like using it for a quick touch up to keep shine down instead of using powder. All Teens, young adults, women, and baby boomers, I promise you will all enjoy this great new product. So when your friends ask what filter did you use to get your face so flawless on Instagram picture, tell them it was MIRACLE BLUR. http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js_uacct = “UA-3446372-1”; urchinTracker();
