The Makeup Room for MTV 10 On Top: Most Stylin’ Stars Of The Year

While everybody was trying to figure out which of their favorite stars were going to make MTV list. I was backstage working on the makeup looks with my fab team. Elated that MTV Networks called me back to create a makeup look for their first fashion show. I had to create makeup looks for Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola from MTV Jersey Shore, Actress Molly Tarlov from MTV Awkward, Blogger GabiFresh, Musicain Elaine Bradlet from music group Neon Trees, and 22 models who are also fans of MTV 10 On Top TV Show.

I wanted to keep the models’ faces fresh, youthful, and effortless with the makeup. For each talent, I gave them a personal glam look. For Sammi, I gave her metallic smokey eyes, a nude lip, and illuminated her skin then topped it off with bronzer, her personal favorite. On Molly, I also kept her eyes smokey but I added a little golden shimmer to make her eyes pop. I used a light pink lipstick on her lips to keep her makeup soft and playful. On Elaine, I wanted to play up her rocker persona. She’s confident, cool, and hip that translated into giving her sultry eyes. All of the talents and models were treated to flirty mink like lashes from Urban Decay called Black Velvet. Urban Decay lashes are a must for makeup artists and ladies who love flirty lashes. On my last face GabiFresh, I wanted her to look trendy and current. The bold pink lips, and bronzed skin was more her personality so I played with more color on her.

When selecting makeup products I used Stila Cosmetics HD Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer, L’OREAL Paris Infallible eye shadows and Colour Caresse by Colour Riche Lipstick. Of course her lashes, I never go anywhere without Urban Decay lashes. 

The show aired on Sunday night and for anyone that didn’t hear, Rihanna claims the leading spot for MTV “10 On Top” music and fashion review.

Sleek and Contemporary: The Revolution Makeup Brushes

When I received my complimentary state of the art Royal & Langnickel set of Revolution brushes from BellaPublic Relations, I was elated. It was perfect timing. I was heading out the door to go to MTV to work on Hip Hop POV, so I couldn’t wait to use them on the ladies to see how they work. Once I actually opened the package I was impressed with the sleek and contemporary look of the brushes. Celebrity Makeup Artist Kevin James Bennett collaborated with Royal & Langnickel to help create the Revolution collection. Each brush head is made of DuPont™ Natrafil® fibers, giving them a soft natural feel. Being that Kevin is a professional makeup artist, I am sure that he thought about durability, length, and comfort of the brushes ‘handles. The brushes seems to be high quality, so I can’t wait to see what amazing work I will be creating with my new Revolution brushes.

Glam Makeup Looks For The Ladies of MTV Hip Hop POV

Last night of the season for MTV Hip Hop POV, so I decided to have fun with the ladies; Devi Dev, Amanda Seales, and Sowmya Krishnamurthy makeup tonight. I knew the makeup on tonight show had to be glamxurious. I relish every Monday because I was able to paint three beautiful canvas with different makeup looks. 
Sowmya and I had an inside joke that she’s the cousin of the Kardashian family. Because I’ve worked with the Kardashian family in New Orleans, working with Sowmya perfect canvas was like working with the Kardashians. Amanda, was my golden palette that I was able to play with bold color eyeliner on her.  My two favorite to use on Amanda were L’OREAL Paris Hip Chrome liner in Violet Volt and Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Turquoise. We had a connection the first day, maybe it’s an island girl thing. Amanda allowed me to play with fun and sometimes sultry makeup looks. With baby girl, Devi Dev, I always kept her lips in soft baby pink, her signature color. Dev luved Stila cosmetics long wear liquid lip color in Petal top with Victoria Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss in Slice of Heaven. Dev, a sweetheart would come in early in we would just have great conversation so I got to learn her personality.
Looking forward to the fall season to play with the ladies makeup again. I must admit Devi Dev, Amanda, and Sowmya are the hottest looking TV host on television and not just on MTV.
Using L’OREAL Paris Infallible LeRouge in Ravishing Red on Sowmya 
Using  Royal & Langnickel Revolution blush brush to apply Stila Cosmetics Custom Color Blush in Pink…my all time favorite

Fuchsia Sparkle Lips for MTV Host


On MTV #HIPHOPPOV TV show I gave one of the host, Sowmya a sultry look. Sparkle Lips was the main focus for this glam look. Instead of playing up her eyes, I wanted to give Sowmya a bright bold color lip with my new signature ” Sparkle Lip” applique. It’s trendy and I know she could rock it. So let the bling begin.
