5 Things Hawaii Celebrity Makeup Artist Must Have In Her Makeup Kit For The NBA All Star Weekend

While relaxing on the beach today here at home in Hawaii, I started working on my list of things I need in my makeup kit for the upcoming NBA All Star Weekend. Being the Lead Hair & Makeup Director for this 3 day weekend festival since 2008, I always try to have the best beauty items that will look great on the athletes, game hosts and music artists on television. Because everything is live I don’t have time for mistakes so I like using items that I can count on and will give everyone a radiant and flawless finish.

Here are my Top 5 must have’s items I will need during the NBA All Star Weekend next week in Chicago.

1. YSL Touche Elcat Blur Primer preps skin for foundation application, creating an improved, refined appearance: pores seem to be minimized, skin texture feels smoother, and skin tone is more even. It’s enriched with four nourishing oils—corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil—to leave skin feeling incredibly soft without a greasy residue. Packed with blur technology, this universal primer provides a subtle, golden shimmer for ultimate luminosity.

2. Armani Luminious Silk FoundationReveal your inner light. Inspired by charmeuse silk, “The Fabric of Emperors,” this luminous foundation glides on weightlessly for a flawless lit-from-within glow. Using exclusive Micro–fil™ technology to sculpt and brighten, this buildable, medium coverage foundation improves texture and blurs imperfections. 

3. Makeup Revolution London Banana Loose Baking Powder is a favorite for prolonging the wear of makeup, banishing shine, brightening and balancing skin tone. Loose powders are a good option for those who desire a luminous, silky and even finish. I find it to be one of the best items to use on male talent because they shine more and this powder doesn’t look heavy on my male talents.

4. Chanel Eclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder imparts a subtle, golden glow for radiant dimension. It has a warm undertones with a luminous sheen. The opaque color coverage can be achieved in a single layer while the texture makes it easy to build if more pigmentation is needed.

5. Beauty Blender has long been a red carpet favorite giving you a fresh and glowing look with the help of the Beautyblender. Make sure it’s damp to keep the skin looking fresh then bounce the sponge across your face for a natural finish. I am able to use a Beautyblender for the first 4 items not having to pick up any other makeup brushes. I never leave my home without having a Beautyblender in my kit.

Hawaii Makeup Artist Give Her Client A JLo Inspired Makeup Look

img_3061-1As a makeup artist I am always looking for a canvas to do makeup looks on. Today at Bloomingdales in Ala Moana Center, I saw a face coming towards me that I knew I needed to get to.

Stephanie came through Bloomingdale’s looking for a new foundation and after learning more about her skin and her makeup style I selected Armani Power Fabric Foundation for her. After doing a foundation match I like to go back in apply the foundation on my guest so they could see what it look like on the skin. So, I first clean the skin, then I prep the skin with Armani Prima Glow On Moisturizing Cream skin care. After applying the Power Fabric Foundation on Stephanie we both agreed that the match was seamless on her. When you have a canvas that look this flawless I couldn’t help myself wanting to create a beautiful JLo inspired makeup look on Stephanie. Don’t you agree, Stephanie face shape is very similar to JLo so I couldn’t help myself. It worked out perfectly because Stephanie was going out tonight to celebrate a BFF birthday. So, the makeup wouldn’t go to waste. I pulled some of my favorite makeup items and this is what I came up with.

Wearing Entitled Beauty Makeup While Traveling Kept Getting Me Stopped

 

img_2775While traveling for Entitled Beautymy makeup line, I kept getting stopped by women inquiring what makeup I was wearing. I wear something from Entitled Beauty everyday but I have never received this type of response like this before. It was a proud moment to say, I’m a Co-Founder and not hype up another brand.

Today, women all over in different cities were obsessing over Entitled Beauty. This is what keeps me going hard because of the reactions on the plane, the airport, at meetings, etc. If more people could see how amazing my makeup line is they too will fall in love with it.

Let me show you what I was wearing, you got about 10 mins to spare? Maybe you’ll see something for yourself, a sibling, a friend, a co-worker who is a makeup addict like myself. So after a few glasses, I’ll be ready to fill all the orders that came in today

Thanks for watching them and I hope this Holiday Season you will give my makeup line Entitled Beauty a try. If you have anyone in your life that has Lupus, I made a purple liquid lipstick shade called, Queen B. I’m sure they would appreciate receiving Queen B, made by another Lupus Warrior. Because of my Lupus is the reason why I moved to Hawaii. And I have been doing 100% better. I took myself off the Prednisone, Meloxicam, Gabapentin and the Nebulizer.

So this Holiday Season, I have so much to be thankful for.
