Getting Maite Perroni Makeup Ready For Proactiv Back To School Event

img_6443When you have an early morning call time in New York for 6am and your coming from Connecticut it means your getting up at 4am. Then if your client is the beautiful Maite Perroni, you have to go in looking fabulous with hair and makeup. What I love about working with this amazing woman is her energy and she loves for her glam squad to look just as good as she does. By 4:30am my hair is slaying and my face is beat. Now off to New York City I go to glam up my girl.

I got to Maite hotel at 5:45am, it’s so quiet so you know what I did, I had a photo shoot in the hotel. So let the photo shoot start because I only have 15 mins so I had to strike a pose.

 

It was so good to see my girl Maite. I feel like we are in the beginning stage of a friendship.

I always enjoy talking with her as well as getting her makeup ready for her events. Upon entering her hotel room, Maite gave me a long hug. I couldn’t wait to catch up with her to see what all new things she’s working on that she has not shared with her loyal fans. Then I was able to share with her all the new things I’m working on including me launching Entitled Beauty Cosmetics back in November. I knew she was going to love it because she loves makeup just as much as I do. And she’s a business woman so she would understand all my ideas and what I’m trying to do with the brand. As we were talking we both realized that we are flirting with spending time in Los Angeles around the same time.

img_8663So why was I in New York doing Maite’s makeup? As many of you know that she’s one of the spokespersons for Proactiv. And Proactiv was having a big event called Proactiv Journey for Back To School. Proactiv along with the fabulous team from Lippie Taylor agency put on a great event for kids returning to school. They set them up for success by providing them with a starter backpack of school supplies ranging from; pencil pouches, 12-pack of pencils, a pack of note cards, highlighters, binders, packs of paper, folders, and so much more. The best items that was added to the backpacks were the Proactiv Limited Edition Gift Bundle that included the 3-piece system featuring Adapalene, their most advanced system to date; Deep Cleansing Face Wash, Daily Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30, and Adapalene Gel 0.1%

So now the kids can treat their skin to retinoid, without a prescription. The great thing about the 3 piece system is that it includes moisture and sun protection, from what I hear it’s highly recommended with the use of retinoids.

It was an elaborate event that catered to all ages from kids, teens and adults. At the candy station is were you could find me when I wasn’t touching up Maite’s makeup.

I am so here for the Limited Edition Hello Kitty brush kit. You can find this item at your local Ulta Beauty store very soon. Check with your local store or follow Proactiv on Instagram so you can hear the launch date. It will make for a great holiday gift so make sure you pick one up before they run out. I wasn’t gifted with the brush kit but I did receive the 3-piece system and I am so honored for it. Being a celebrity makeup artist living with lupus, I’m always worried about my skin and how it looks. I wear a full face of makeup everyday because I hate the texture of my skin. I have oily skin with large pores and moles on my face. So, I can’t wait to see if my skin texture change in 3 months. Adult acne is a thing and I see so many of my clients suffering with it more then when they were a teenager. Proactiv is not just for teens, us adults we need some Proactiv love also.

img_5315

Makeup and Martinis is back for Season 2, Summer 2018. I’m so excited to be back filming with Johnny, it’s always so much fun when we get together. I don’t know how we ever complete these videos because we giggle like high schools girls the entire time.

So today’s video is about Prestige makeup brands verse Drugstore makeup brands. The contenders were, KKW Beauty vs Wet n Wild. Johnny was my model like always and the two items we tried out were; concealer and powder. I’m a a fan of both brands, growing up with Wet n Wild. I use to think I was fly wearing Wet n Wild hot pink magenta lipstick. And everyone know how obsessed I am with the gorgeous Kim Kardashian so of course I love KKW Beauty. So this was definitely a hard one for me to do. Watch the entire video and see who I selected.

Let’s see if you can tell the difference, be honest and let me know your thoughts.
