What a dream come true when 21 years of working in the beauty and entertainment industry being on set for numerous photo shoot. Sometimes I would daydream and think that one day I would be my own Owner and Creative Director for my makeup line. I have an eye and ears for greatness and I just had to wait my turn when GOD said it’s your time. I have always believed that you can’t rush it, success…it takes time and when it’s your turn it will happen effortlessly. And that is what happened with Entitled Beauty makeup line. I’m just relaxed and letting everything fall into place. Today my dream came through on set at Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury. We didn’t have all 12 of the lip colors, guess what they arrived 2 days after the shoot. And we also now have our new collagen lip glosses but again they were held up but the show must go on right. Our girls came through, Mindy a lifestyle blogger with Finding Silver Linings and model Lauren gave us the energy we needed to capture the looks we wanted. Come take a peek to see what Johnny and myself is up.

Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury is a perfect place to call home when your away from home. I stayed over the day before the shoot in the Executive Suite to get everything organized so that our day would go smooth. The staff at Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury was so very helpful with all of my needs. They treated me like I was a VIP guest because they were so swift on anything I asked for. To keep my body up I was able to get 24/7 access to hot tea, yes there is Starbucks coffee but I’m not a coffee drinker. I was also able to get all of my emails and look at all of our pics on their high tech computer, luv that they have high speed WiFi in their business center. A perfect setup for any business owner and lifestyle blogger like myself. One of my 2018 goals
On Saturday I went to the city to do a photo shoot with 2 fabulous women, Felita Harris who’s a SVP in Fashion, and Tracey Baker Simmons a Exec Producer. Our talented photographer Karriem who does a lot of fashion and portraits work captured everything the ladies was bringing.
Whenever we work together lots of beautiful magic happens. I started working with the ladies in July 2011 and every time it’s a party. Felita sent me a storyboard of where they wanted to go with their fashion so it gave me ideas on how I wanted to do both of their makeup. The ladies always let me do my artistry sometimes I push it, but they know at the end it will be fabulous. Each time I try to give them something new something different, plusI always want to try out my new makeup.
Enough of my rambling see for yourself how much fun we had and all the gorgeousness that happen…Inside The Life Of A Makeup Artist
