Now that makeup has been airbrushed on with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics the model is waiting for hair. As she’s wait patiently for hair I’m cleaning my tools so I can be ready for makeup look 2. The first look is all about the bright yummy pink lips from OCC. It’s a new lip tar call Yaoi, an obnoxious true fuchsia metallic shade. On her eyes, I sprayed her with OCC loose colour pigment in Clove, a champagne shimmer. The model was channeling the iconic and fabulous music artist Jody Watley from the 80’s with her beautiful head of natural hair. So I gave the model a very strong dark brows that Jody use to rock back in the days.  I was out of my favorite Urban Decay lashes in Black Velvet so I used the Baby Doll strip lashes on her. The rest of her face is all about strong highlighting & contouring. Once hair is done, I’ll probably tweak her makeup a little more. For now it’s all about GLAMXURIOUS!!!!

Fun Sultry Photo Shoot in Soho

I had the pleasure of working with Jade of Jades today, a talented and gorgeous young woman who sings & act. She has done Broadway shows and sing background with music artist Solange Knowles. Jade is working on new pictures and asked if I could help her out. Nyla, the hairstylist did a great job with Jade’s hair, luv the fishtail.
Jade had a few different looks that she wanted me to create but because I was having a vertigo attack all day I couldn’t be as creative as I would have normally. But with a pretty canvas to work on I could have painted her with my eyes close. 
My makeup of choice on this shoot was: Inglot, Stila, OCC, and L’OREAL Paris.

Makeup: Get Tangerine Orange This Spring

Makeup by Connecticut Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis
It’s definitely spring time and I am starting to retire some of my winter clothes, scarves, and boots. I am excited about wearing a pop of color, and this spring my palette will consist of beautifully ostentatious oranges. 

During New York Fashion Week Fall 2012, designers like Nanette LeporeMonique LhuillierTracy ReeseAnna Sui, and Michael Kors, all flirted with shades of bright orange on the runway with their collection, makeup, clothes, and even nails. Just last week, I was a guest makeup artist at the Sephora stores in Greenwich and Danbury, the store was hosting a high end limited collection called Tangerine Tango.

Bold tangerine lip colors will not be the only choice this spring, as there will be lots of yummy orange lip shades for you to choose from. You can select a sheer lip, a stain lip, or a strong bold lip color. If you’re not ready to add it to your lips then make sure to add this delicious color to your wardrobe or your nails.

VH-1 Divas; Backstage Getting Dancers Glam

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

After talking with the talented choreographer Fatima Robinson about the makeup look during Mary J Blige and Kelly Clarkson rehearsal. Fatima shared with me what she wanted for the dancers so I knew I had to use products that was going to last the dancers all evening. I prep all their faces with Maya Water and OCC lip balm for their lips. On the eyes I selected L’OREAL Paris new Infallible 24hrs eye shadows. On the lips I used both L’OREAL Paris Colour Riche leGloss in Raspberry Splash  and Stila Cosmetics Lip Enamel lip gloss in Giggle.  
Enjoy some of the backstage shots of me getting some of the fabulous female dancers ready. I worked backstage with Celebrity Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist Leo Eley who worked on the hair and we were a great team together. I think my highlight was seeing Denzel Washington and all I can remember hearing his tone not sure what he was saying. My brain completely shut down and Denzel sound like Charlie Brown teacher…womp womp womp womp. Ladies 50 cent was also backstage on stage, he looked very handsome and actually he may have been the only guy that was dressed for the occasion, at least that I saw. Travie McCoy was such a gentlemen when he sit in my chair. Very sweet guy and thinking me with a hug and a kiss on the check, I can’t complain. I did see the handsome makeup artist Sam Fine for 30 seconds backstage. Sorry that I couldn’t have more pics for you but cameras was off limits in 90% of the area backstage and I was super busy running around.
