Whenever I share with my clients that I will be working the NBA All Star Weekend I always get asked the same question, “You Put Makeup On The Ball Players”? But there is so much more to being the Key Makeup Artist for the NBA during All Star Weekend. Friday through Sunday I have a lot of talents (music artists, hosts, dancers, & players) scheduled for makeup before going on television. One of my favorite talents and someone I worked with before at Sundance Film Festival was John Legend. John Legend and his dancers were all scheduled to receive makeup on Sunday. I always enjoy creating a makeup look for the dancers so that they could all be consistent with their fashion.
The reason why I selected to share what products I used on John Legend is because so many ask how do you groom a man for television. With John Legend already having consistently even skin, he was easy to work with. My only concern was to hide his dark circles so that he would not look restless on camera. Whenever I’m working and doing a live show, I have know that the products I use will be reliable and give me the finish that I want.
Here are the items that was used to give John Legend an effortless look on television.
Yesterday I met with one of my clients, Amy Wendland Schmidt from Ridgefield, CT and she wanted to introduced me to a brand that I wasn’t really familiar with. A few times when doing her makeup she chatted with me about Rodan & Fields products. She is definitely a fan of the brand. If I have ever done your makeup you know how important prepping the skin with great skin care products is to me. My thing is if you don’t practice great skin care then you will not achieve a flawless makeup look regardless of how expensive the makeup is. I’ve been blessed to have radiant skin and I look youthful but I do have skin concerns. My challenge is large pores & dark circles so I look forward to seeing the results.
Amy gifted me with a travel size kit from the REDEFINE line so that I can try out and experience for myself the products. So here is what I received in my REDEFINE Age Assault kit.
