Anita Hill Movie Premiere In New York

Just received an email from Director Freida Mock about the upcoming NY Human Rights Watch Festival Premiere, Opening Night on June 14th. 

I worked with Anita Hill earlier this year at Sundance Film Festival doing both her hair & makeup inside the EW Lounge & L’OREAL Paris suite. Each day  I was able to create a different makeup look for her using all L’OREAL Paris makeup & hair products. 
Look forward to seeing both Freida & Anita again!

My first day of Sundance Film Festival 2013 kicked off with working with the king of Sundance, Robert Redford once again. The day started off getting dropped off to the Egyptian Theater where I will groom Mr. Redford for all of his appearances and interviews that he had lined up. After getting him ready I packed up my hair & makeup kit, then I was brought over to The Sundance House HP where the rest of his press junkets would take place. One of the Entertainment Correspondent was CNN Host Nischelle Turner who I have actually done makeup on in the past. I was so excited to see her and actually so proud of her. We were able to give each other luv for only a few minutes. Such a supported person she shared with Mr. Redford how we met and that I was a great makeup artist. How sweet.  
 
Everyone always ask what do I use when I groom Robert Redford. Here are some of the L’OREAL Paris items I use:

L’OREAL PARIS Men’s Expert Hydra-Energetic Ice Cold Eye Roller
L’OREAL Paris Men’s Expert Vita Lift SPF 15 Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer 
L’OREAL Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer
L’OREAL Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur
L’OREAL Paris Lip Balm 
L’OREAL Paris EverStyle Texture Series Tousle Creme
L’OREAL Paris EverStyle Texture Series Beach Spray

Ava DuVernay Gets Glam At Sundance with L’OREAL Paris

Words can not express how elated I was when I received an email from Tilane Jones, Managing Director of AFFRM and Co-Producer of Middle of Nowhere that Director of Middle Of Nowhere, Ava DuVernay would need my makeup service during Sundance Film Festival. Both Tiffany and I were ecstatic that we would have this talented and amazing woman in our chair inside the Sundance Co-Op Lounge. We had many amazing women stop by but Ava and Emayatzy brought a great energy to the L’OREAL Paris lounge. Ava also made Sundance history by being the first black female to win The Best Director Prize for her movie “Middle Of Nowhere”. Ava invited both Tiffany and I to the movie premier, what a sweet gesture. The movie was ground breaking and brilliantly written a must see when it hits theaters.
On one of visits to the L’OREAL Paris lounge I wanted to give her a fresh not overpowering makeup look with a little glam. So I focused on her lips and kept everything else complimentary to her skin tone.  Below is one of Ava makeup palette while at Sundance Film Festival.

While at Sundance Film Festival I had the pleasure of working with the Leading Lady Emayatzy Corinealdi and the Director Ava DuVernay of the movie “Middle Of Nowhere“.Tilane Jones, Managing Director of AFFRM and Co Producer of Middle of Nowhere reached out to Tiffany and I about doing the ladies makeup while at Sundance for all of their press junkets. What an honor to get requested to work with a new face and one being so flawless. A perfect canvas that any makeup colors that I selected would look amazing on her.

Emayatzy came by every morning to the L’OREAL Paris lounge inside of the Sundance Co-Op room. I knew that Emayatzy was going to have a busy schedule on this day so I selected L’OREAL Paris Infallible 24hr eye shadow and L’OREAL Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick. Our makeup station was not stock with the new True Match shades so I used the old shades from True Match.

Men’s Grooming: How I Acheive Robert Redford Look Using L’OREAL Paris

This year highlight at Sundance Film Festival 2012 was working with the talented, handsome actor and Founder of Sundance Film Festival,  Robert Redford.  Men are not always consistent about taking care of their skin but Mr. Redford understands how important it is to maintain collagen and elastin in his skin appearance. A few key items that I used on Mr. Redford were from L’OREAL PARIS to achieve his classic look.

Because Redford would be busy speaking at panels and doing interviews, I knew sleep was not happening during the festival so I made sure that I had my L’OREAL Paris Men’s Expert Hydra-Energetic Cold Eye Roller

The eye roller has Vitamin C and Caffeine so it gives an instant refreshing look to dark under eyes or puffiness. On his skin I used L’OREAL Paris Men’s Expert Vita Lift SPF 15 Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer

This product contains retinol so it hydrates the skin leaving it glowing and smooth.  Redford has amazing thick hair, so I used L’OREAL Paris Studio Line “Out of Bed Texturizer” on his hair to achieve the effortless messy hair look that Redford likes

So guys, step it up, take a little time to pamper yourself and your skin if you want to maintain THAT’S HOT title.

Sundance Film Festival 2012 Highlights Photos

Here are a few pics from last week assignment at Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. I have limited amount of pictures because my camera filled with so many fun shots of my fun filled days at Sundance disappeared. All I ask if anyone find my camera to please return to me or send to L’OREAL office in NYC. I just need the pics especially the ones with the family in the new home for the holidays in Connecticut :(((
