My third year working the green room at Glamour Magazine “Women Of The Year” Awards for L’OREAL Paris. My first year I worked with Jennifer Aniston. This year highlight was Hillary Clinton. I always look forward to seeing how glamxurious they design our green room. This year they didn’t disappoint, selecting my favorite combination of black & gold. What a sexy room, see for yourself.

As I got myself hair and makeup ready it did not hit me that I was going to be doing makeup in the L’OREAL Paris green room for Glamour magazine “Women Of The Year” event at Carnegie Hall. I knew the event was going to be very spectacular, adorn with many elegant women looking stunning. So I decided to glam up my makeup and selected the L’OREAL Paris Project Runway makeup collection palette. I styled my hair the way Nate Berkus likes it and of course finishing it off with Elnett Satin hairspray. I choose my Swarovski crystals chandelier earrings I knew they would pop against my yummy hot pink lipstick.
As Tiffany and I enter through the stage door we were greeted by the staff at check in. Lorraine Nunez and Alicia Barone from Glamour magazine allowed for a smooth check in by confirming with us on Friday afternoon. We were given 2 assistants (Stephanie & Remi) to help us through out the evening. I always find it very helpful having personal help at large scale events as such. The green room decor was nicely done very comfortable for the talents to sit, mingle, and eat as they wait to go on stage. My first talent was Barbara Walters who wanted me to touch up her hair because it had falling flat. I used my favorite, Elnett Satin hairspray to give her more volume and touched up her lips to give her a little more pop before going on stage. My last talent of the evening was Jennifer Aniston, she was a blast. I think Jennifer was enjoying herself in the L’OREAL Paris green room with Tiffany and I way to much. Jennifer laughs a lot, she’s real, someone you would call a bestie, and we talked about everything, but I can’t kiss & tell. Tiffany is always amazed how celebs open up to me and tell me things that reporters would die for. This is why I am now ready for my reality show because sometimes my life seems unreal even to me, lol. Pink Sneakers productions we can talk again if you like, lol.

Our makeup room was a hit with the ladies that stopped by. I think Diana Sawyer may have stopped in the most to see Tiffany for hair, makeup, and even help with her clothes. The room was glamorous and it felt very intimate, the fresh cut flowers gave it a very soft scent that the ladies felt comfortable.With so many great L’OREAL Paris products surrounding them of course they didn’t want to leave and I didn’t want to see them go.
