My Glam Day With Muscle & Fitness Hers Magazine Photshoot

Today’s photoshoot with Muscle & Fitness Hers magazine was so much fun. As many of you know who follow my blog that I’m one of the worst eaters around. Redbull & pork skins for breakfast or pizza and champagne for dinner, lol. Thank godness they weren’t hiring me for my healthy eating. 
I arrived at Powerhouse Gym at 8:30am in New Haven. CT. The gorgeous Mona Muresan, the Editor In Chief greeted me in showed me where to set up in the boxing area of the gym. Shortly after I met with Sarah the photographer & Tara the Photo Editor to go over the makeup look for today’s shoot. The issue comes out Jan/Feb 2014.
Some of my makeup selections came from: Nicks K NY, L’OREAL Paris, Covergirl, & Stila cosmetics
I’m a big fan of Nicka K NY makeup brushes

Sweat-Proof Makeup On 2012 Olympics Athlete Lolo Jones

With the 2012 Olympics in London coming up in August, I’m sure us beauty lovers would like to know how their favorite female athletes will maintain their beauty. The key word in the hot summer months is “sweat proof” and “humidity resistant”. I had the pleasure of doing makeup & hair on the stunning Lolo Jones for Redbull “Red Bulletin” Magazine on a very hot day in Baton Rouge, La. I brought tons of makeup with me because I didn’t have the details for the shoot (indoor or outdoor). I selected products that will be perfect for what Lolo will experience when she runs the 100m hurdles this summer. I needed her face makeup to be sweat proof, so I used makeup from Hourglass Cosmetics. I love Hourglass cosmetics products for this reason, it’s great for outdoor assignments. So I make sure I always have it in my makeup kit. 

I prepped Lolo with Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer and used Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in Beige. On her eyes I selected an neutral brown shimmer eye shadows from Inglot cosmetics and eye liner and mascara from L’OREAL Paris. To stay put in all the humidity, I used L’OREAL Paris HIP Studio Secrets Cream Eyeliner in Black and Voluminious Waterproof Mascara in Carbon Black. On Lolo’s cheeks, I wanted her to maintain her youthful and effortless look so I selected  a soft shade of pink blush from MAC cosmetics called Well Dressed and on her lips I used Victoria Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss called Slice of Heaven. To keep Lolo’s skin glowing I pick Stila cosmetics All-over shimmer powder in Kitten. 

To finish her look off, on Lolo’s hair, I used the best of the best, L’OREAL Paris Elnett Satin hairspray. I also mixed a few shades of MAC cosmetics foundation to use on her body then tap a little of Stila cosmetics All-over shimmer powder in Kitten for that perfect glow. So now you know the secret to the beautiful Lolo Jones.
