At Sundance Film Festival I had the honor of doing makeup on so many FAB people in the EW & L’OREAL Paris Lounge. Mary Showstark was one of those great people that came through the lounge that I got a chance to give some fun L’OREAL swag to.

Kerry Washington gets nude lips at Sundance Film Fest

@lorealparisusa … This spring, ladies will search for a new lip color to complement their complexion. Shades like nude, peach, and bold pinks will be some of the must have shades that will make it to our purses, vanities, and makeup bags.  A nude lip color works well on all ages and all skin tones. Nude is a perfect lip color for day and evening and also works well with a dramatic eye.

At Sundance Film Festival, I wanted to keep the celebrities looking glam but fresh and not overdone with bold eye colors and fake lashes. I selected colors that would enhance them, leaving their skin flawless and glowing. One of my favorite new makeup items that L’OREAL Paris recently launched are the Infallible Le Rouge Lip Colors.  A 10 hour creamy hi-definition lipstick that offers shine, Vitamin E, and a conditioning base, great for the cold winter days.

On the gorgeous actress Kerry Washington, a L’OREAL Paris spokesperson, I selected shade Opulent Organza #812. A natural shade that looks really good on brown skin. To top off this lip color, I opt for L’OREAL Paris Hip Shine Struck Liquid Lip color in Reserve #866.

Makeup Brandy used on Kerry Washington are:
True Match Foundation C7 Nut Brown
True Match Powder C7 Nut Brown 
True Match Blush N7-8 Sweet Ginger
L’OREAL Infallible Le’Rouge Lipstick #812 Opulent Organza
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL!!!! YOU ARE AN AWESOME WOMAN. I’M SURE YOU WILL HAVE A GLAM DAY. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.

Sundance Film Festival 2011

Being a L’OREAL Paris Pro Makeup Artist, I am blessed to work fun events doing makeup at major assignments such as Sundance Film Festival. This is the GLAM LIFE OF A MAKEUP ARTIST. I may not be a household name makeup artist, ad I’m ok with that because I am still working consistently, traveling and doing what I love, makeup artistry.
Below I have attached lots of fun pics from this year Sundance Film Festival 2011. Some of the pictures will be inside the Entertainment Weekly lounge and some at the condo, dinner, nightclub, and on the streets of Park City. I also have picture of the upstairs ACURA lounge. My favorite spot in the morning to get my hot tea and tweet about Sundance.
This year a nasty flu hit the EW lounge leaving everybody returning home with a nasty cough, running nose, and watery eyes. Overall, I had an amazing time with my girls! 2 years in a row I was able to do makeup on L’OREAL spokesperson Kerry Washington for the EW lounge pics only.

Getting Harmony Santana ready for Red Carpet at Sundance

written by Connecticut Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

@omiHarmony @rashaadernesto  @esai_morales @sundancechannel @sundancefest … One of my many honors at Sundance Film Festival 2011 was meeting upcoming actress Harmony Santana. Harmony plays Michael/Vanessa and the amazing film Gun Hill Road written by Rashaad Ernesto Green debuting at Sundance Film Festival. One of my favorite childhood actor/crush Esai Morales plays Enrique, father of Michael/Vanessa. Enrique character was locked up for 3 years in prison and when he returns home he finds out that his 16 year old son is going through a sexual transformation. I’m sure you can only imagine how a Hispanic father from the Bronx handles this new change and his family.

I got a chance to meet the cast as they came to the EW & L’OREAL Paris lounge to do their exclusive photo shoot for Entertainment Weekly magazine. On this day I touched up the sexy Esai Morales. Later that evening Tiffany who did Harmony makeup shared with me that Harmony  & Vanessa Aspillaga (she plays Esai sister) wanted to come back to get their makeup done for the red carpet movie premiere. Very excited about doing my favorite type of makeup look; GLAM, I was hyped about doing it.
Harmony came back the next day on time for her appointment. This was my first time meeting her because the day before all I remember seeing from the cast was Esai. Harmony was a very timid and delicate young lady. I did a consultation with her asking the basic question about what she was wearing (black Versace dress), etc…Baby Girl was in the right hands she just didn’t know it. When Harmony first sat in my chair she was not to social. But half way through the makeup application Harmony opened up, she laughed and talked with me and I found out that she doesn’t live to far from me.
At the end I knew she loved her makeup because she gave me a hug and wanted to take pics. We exchanged info and baby girl was off to get ready for the big evening. The girls; Tiffany, Vanessa, and I went to see the movie. Either we pick tear jerkers or we just cry at every movie we see every year at Sundance. This is a great movie and it’s not just going to do well in the gay community and the Latino community. I found many things in the movie that I was able to relate to that’s why I was very emotional. Don’t sleep on Gun Hill Road, it’s one of those great movies that gives you INSIGHT.
