New Orleans Blogger & Influencer Received 3 Top Influencer Badges For 2018

It is award season so when I received my 2018 Edition Year In Review from FOHR agency I was so elated to review how I was doing as an influencer. After reviewing everything I was so impressed img_7646with how beautiful it was put together. As an influencer and blogger this is perfect to receive because it allows you to see how well you are doing within so many categories. Being that I am an Influencer and both Connecticut and New Orleans, it’s nice to see what city I’m doing better in and what I need to work on. The first two-three months of the new year I’ll be in New Orleans so I’ll be able to create more content outdoor because I would not have to deal with the cold and snow in Connecticut.  Being in a smaller market like New Orleans as a Blogger & Influencer I always feel that I have to work harder. As many of you bloggers know sometimes it’s hard to create content everyday so this is definitely motivating. The review is a perfect way to kick off the new year. It’s always nice to hear when you’re a TOP INFLUENCER and to receive 3 badges, not to shabby.

Here is the letter that was sent from James Nord, the Founder of FOHR.

Congratulations! You did it!

Hey Brandy,

Did you wake up this morning with a little pep in your step, feeling like you were doing something right? If you have been searching for a reason for that elevated mood, search no more, because we know what it is: you are a top influencer for Black Up, Yankee Candle, and BOSS for December!

Here is what that means: we track over 350 brands to see which influencers are giving them the most coverage on Instagram. Next, we rank those by the number of impressions (number of followers x number of posts) they dedicate to those brands on over a given month. Lastly, we look at the top influencer across 7 following levels and send them, well, this email.

The Instastory or Instastories attached will show which brand or brands you were a top influencer for. If you’re feeling yourself (or even if you’re not), you should throw it up on your Instastories and tag the brand (and your friends over at Fohr). I’m sure they will want to hear from you.

Keep on slaying and we will keep coming up with ways for you to flex.

Cheers,

James Nord
Founder, Fohr

Getting A Holiday Glam Beat Face With Entitled Beauty Cosmetics

 

img_6042I love when my clients think of me when they want a BEAT FACE for their events. Amy, one of my fabulous client here in Ridgefield, Connecticut called me for just that, as she attends one of her many Christmas Parties this holiday season. Guess what, I gave Amy just that, a sultry makeup look just like she likes it. A stunning yet smoky holiday makeup beat with a high gloss nude lip and high shine cheeks. So, you know what that mean, I pulled out Entitled Beauty Cosmetics so I could give her the best.

Whenever Amy and I get together we always enjoy a bottle of Veuve Clicquot. Makeup and champagne goes hand and hand, don’t you agree.

Becoming: Are You Becoming The Person You Always Wanted To Be

img_0155Makeup Artistry for me is art, I can stand for hours doing makeup on a human canvas. Creating different beautiful makeup looks is something I’m great at. I do ok on myself but on a canvas I feel like I’m painting masterpiece.

Two of my favorite things to do when doing makeup is creating flawless skin and sultry eyes. If the skin is not radiant and smooth then the rest of the beat face means nothing. With eyes, it was always important to me. I use to get clients telling me they knew I did the work because of the way the eyes were done. When I was young teen I use to draw eyes all the time and place them all over my walls. I remember my parents mostly my father thinking I was crazy, no really, like crazy I need help. But I’m embracing the beauty of who I am, and I’m doing exactly what I’ve always wanted to do…create art.

For 22 years, I have been bless doing what I love. This week former First Lady Michelle Obama new book, BECOMING came out and after watching Michelle Obama speak on OPRAH Winfrey Presents: Becoming Michelle Obama it made me think. Yes, I’m doing what I am passionate about but now what else can I do with it. I’ve taught makeup, I’ve coached makeup artistry at SEPHORA, I even started Beauty Blueprint, helping aspiring makeup artist who wanted to work in the beauty & entertainment industry when I was on bed rest due to Lupus. Just last year I launched a luxurious mineral base makeup line called Entitled Beauty. But how else can I now push myself to do more. So this is where I am stuck, I feel like I still have more to bring to the industry but what?

Do you ever think about how can you elevate yourself in your career?

HGTV Magazine Block Party In New York

img_9558Bloggers, if I can share with you anything it’s push yourself everyday if you want to your blog to be successful. I’ve been there with abandoning my blog because of everyday life just took precedence. When I was named “15 Awesome People To Follow During The Golden Globe” by AOL that really got me going. When I changed over to WordPress in 2015 I lost my followers and how to do my SEO that has been so discouraging. But at yesterday HGTV Magazine Block Party the panel got me fired up in a good way. I’m on the right track with my blog because it’s authentic, my blog is about me my life as a Celebrity Makeup Artist and Beauty Expert. The tips and advice that was given by the panel really helped a lot. I just have to have someone look at my SEO because I didn’t correctly do it so I’m losing money and not getting the bookings that I should be.
