Glam Day at OPRAH O Magazine Event

When @LOREALPARISUSA called to say that they were sending the L’OREAL Pro Team to Atlanta for @OPRAH @O_Magazine event I was elated. Friday afternoon at the Georia World Convention Center, Christian our tour manager confirmed that I would be speaking on the second stage with O Magazine Style Expert & Creative Director Adam Glassman alongside Valerie (VAL) Monore the Beauty Director. My legs got weak as we rode the escalator to the 2nd floor. Everything was moving fast, I was now schedule to rehearse and meet with the producer as well as go over speaking points. This is not my first rodeo ride working this event but this was the first time now being a part of the O You event, The Lord has heard my prayers.

Last week at the L’OREAL PARIS USA tech center where all the magic takes place I went over to do the beginning part of filming of the makeover not knowing that I was going to be a part of the revealing. All of the hair & makeup products that was used were all from L’OREAL PARIS. I believe in 2-3 weeks you will be able to see the video on O Magazine website….Glam Life Of A Makeup Artist!!!

O Magazine Glam Makeover at L’OREAL Paris

I received a called from L’OREAL PARIS USA Assistant Manager of Consumer Promotions and Public Relations that she wanted me to come to the Tech Center to do a makeup application. I didn’t know it was for O Magazine & OPRAH O YOU event in Atlanta.

Update on O Magazine vs Carol’s Daughter

Just in case you didn't read the first blog while on tour I received a call from Lisa Price people about booking me to do the makeup for Mrs. Lisa Price of Carol's Daughter. The event is for the grand opening of the Macy's and I guess they will be carrying her line there.

The date they needed me for was the same dates that I will be in San Francisco working Oprah/0 Magazine event. How crazy right, two well know African American women needing me at the same time.

So, I explained to Robin that I fly out on Friday at 5:17 pm so I would be able to do Lisa Price makeup if it's an early call time or the afternoon. But, on Saturday I would not be able to take the assignment. Well, I have not heard back from since last week.

Today, I received the email and she said Lisa Price would need me at 4:30pm so it's not going to work. Shit, I was hoping that it would. Robin did say they are always in need of a great makeup artist in that they will be in touch for other dates.

So, it looks like Oprah won this one. The Oprah assignment is changing everyday for the best. I am getting ready to go to Bacco restaurant to meet Beth Ann and do a walk through for the W hotel fashion show next week, Wednesday and Thursday. Then I have the photo shoot on Friday, Halloween day at the W hotel with “Destination I Do magazine”.

So I have a lot to catch you all up on. Still have not made it to my studio yet but I hope to do that today. Well, I have to cuz David the owner of OCC Makeup needs me to send him a list of makeup that I will need for the fashion show.
