My Pantone Radiant Orchid 2014 New Year’s Eve Makeup Look

My New Year’s Eve makeup look was inspired by Pantone Color Of The Year 2014; Radiant Orchid. Pinky Purple a great spring color of warmth that looks great on everyone. It’s such a flirty color that I feel so feminine wearing it. The plus is that Radiant Orchid makes you look youthful and it brighten the face. As always I’m always trying to find makeup products on a budget that won’t break your private/emergency stash. We all want to look glamxurious but not everybody can keep up with the looks we see on the runway.  
Here are makeup items I used to get my 2014 Radiant Orchid look.

Start with a damp Beauty Blender
Apply Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm with my Beauty blender first
With my damp Beauty Blender I then apply L’OREAL Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur second
Before I do my face I like to do my eye makeup. I used Nicka K NY Absolute Perfect Eighteen Colors. The ones with the yellow dots are the 3 colors I used.
I then lined my eyes with Nicka K NY Liquid Liner. I don’t normally rock a cat look, it’s to trendy for me but this liner
gives a great cat eye

I’m enjoying L’OREAL Paris new Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

Finish with my eyes I damp my Beauty Blender again then I apply L’OREAL Paris Magic Lumi on my face

I then apply Stila Stay All Day HD Foundation & Concealer with my Beauty Blender.
I use # 10 to highlight & #13 all over
I don’t leave home without my L’OREAL Paris True Match Powder. I use a total of 3 colors to create my custom look.
*W8 all over *C8 to contour & *N5 to highlight

Set my foundation with Black Opal Invisible Oil Blocking Powder
My signature blush is Stila Custom Color Blush in Pink
For a little warmth to the skin this winter I like Nicka K NY Mineral Sheer & Glow Bronzer in Chocolate. I also like Carat/24K but I’m out of that one, lol!!!
I finished my Pantone Radiant Orchid makeup look by using Nicka K NY Lip Color in 
Heading out the door, car just arrived to take me to my fav HAMPTONS family to get them makeup ready for their annual New Year’s bash..HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Effortlessly Nude Look For A Donna Karan New York Video Shoot

One of my favorite designer is Donna Karan New York. I can go on for days with my testimonial on why I’m obsessed with her clothing. When ever I get a call to do makeup at her showroom it’s a treat because I get to go shopping in my head. This recent assignment Curtis called me to do both hair & makeup for a video for The Resort 2014 & Cashmere Collection. Because I saw the collection while doing makeup during market week at the showroom I knew what the collection looked like. After talking with Curtis we both channel going nude for the first half of the day with the makeup and effortless hair. Here a sneak peak from the video shoot. I hope you enjoy because it’s a great fall/winter makeup & hair look that is is simple to achieve.
Hair Products: L’OREAL Paris Hair Tools: Nicka K NY Skin: Erno Laszlo Makeup: Stila, L’OREAL Paris, Nicka K NY, X Compound
Model Andressa Junqueira and I always have a great time on set. She’s my makeup muse 🙂
My makeup palette of choice to create my Effortlessly Nude look

Makeup Lovers: My Glamxurious Makeup Class At Erno Laszlo

Just arrived wearing very light makeup
My first makeup Master Class at the Erno Laszlo Institute in Soho, I must say was a success. In attendance were fellow makeup artists; new and pros, as well as makeup lovers, and challenged makeup wearers. 
I shared my tips & tricks that I use when working on my clients and on set. I prep the face first with Erno Laszlo Transphuse Day Serum. I utilized makeup from some of fav makeup brands; Flower Beauty, Stila Cosmetics, Nicka K, L’OREAL Paris, and Smashbox  to demonstrate techniques. 
I always get asked about selecting the right foundation, concealer, and how to contour & highlight. So this class, I focused on foundations, concealers, and techniques/tips for face shaping. I will be doing 1-on-1 classes, makeup lessons, tips on how to work in the industry, as well makeup applications & eye lash extensions at the Institute. As of now, my set day at Erno Laszlo will be Thursday unless booked on set. Being such a glamxurious place to work, I of course will be adding more dates.                                             
In the glamxurious Hollywood room at Erno Laszlo Institute getting ready
I’m HAIR & MAKEUP Ready for my master class at Erno Laszlo Institute

I used Flower Beauty as well as my Beauty Blender to teach my class

Other makeup I used were Stila, Nicka K, L’OREAL Paris & Smashbox

As you see I’m obsessed with their gorgeous crystal chandelier and spiral staircase
