I am so excited about working this assignment at Bravo Media Studio in New York. After a busy week working the Bruno Mars & The Hooligans assignment I was happy to be working on 2 females that I have so much respect for. Without giving away any info on the assignment my talents were TV Personality JWow, actress Tichnia Arnold and 2 female talents that will have a major role on this episodes.
I had such a great time with JWow in the morning on set, she is such a sweet girl. Love her energy and I luv that she likes to play with makeup. So JWow gave me free range to do what ever with her makeup, my kind of girl. We both luved how Stila cosmetics highlighter showed up on her. The foundation I used was Stila cosmetics Stay All Day Foundation, it’s one of my favorite to use on set because I like the way it shows up on camera and on photos. Here are some of the items I used on JWow.
Tichnia flew in this morning and came straight to the set to work. Now that is what I call A-LIST. On Tichnia I gave her a sultry dark eyes with a nude lip from Dior Beauty. I don’t even know how I got through with doing her makeup. She had me laughing the entire time. I wish more celebrities have her energy and personality on set. We connected over me being a lupus warrior and she luv how I did her makeup. Here are some of the items I used on her.
On the ladies I could not wait to pull out the few Fenty Beauty items I had. The products looked beautiful on the ladies. Fenty Beauty and Stila cosmetics made for a great team for my boogie down brown ladies.
We are back at it again with our 2nd episode of our makeup video Makeup And Martini’s NYC. I am so elated to share with you a gifted box of makeup from Stila Cosmetics on this segment. I am such a fan of Stila and I also want to share with you that I was a Stila rep back in 2011. I’m still such a fan of the brand and I use a lot of Stila products when on set because I LOVE STILA! So, today Johnny and I will share with you some of the products that was sent to me. Because I’m a die hard fan I am familiar with some of the items but Johnny is new to Stila so I’m delighted to watch Johnny play and fall in love with Stila.
If any of you have ever been around Johnny and myself you know all we do is drink and talk makeup, makeup, makeup when together! So Johnny had this fun idea that we should just turn the camera on and just let whatever happens, happens. Well, this is what we’re doing. We not trying to be similiar to anyone just being us having fun. Because we both have a sassy personality we really never know what will come out of our mouth so put on your seat belt and sit back enjoy the foolishness that we bring while sipping on our Finlandia Vodka.
Here is the list of the items we were playing with in the video from Stila Cosmetics.
The weather was horrible all day in Fairfield County but that didn’t stop the ladies in Greenwich, CT for coming to Warren Tricomi Salon to get their beauty needs taken care of like hair, makeup & nails. On a rainy day like today I love just doing makeup creating different makeup looks. I had a few good canvas to have fun with each getting a different makeup look.
With Rachael before & after look I removed everything she had on. She wanted me to keep the same colors so I did just that. I refreshed her skin by prepping her skin with Caudalie first then I applied makeup to a now more radiant, brighter and hydrated skin. The makeup brands that I used on Rachael were from Kevyn Aucoin, Stila Cosmetics, and Urban Decay.
Audrey is a client of mine that come to see me for all of her special occasions in her life if I’m available. I think I may have missed her one time but I always managed to make it work for her. After leaving the salon Audrey met me at my home after she got off from work. I made sure to have a bottle of Mionetto Prosecco ready for her upon arriving. The weather was horrible with a rain storm but nothing was stopping Audrey from going out to celebrate. Her friends also kept calling to check in that she wasn’t cancelling the party. I guess when you’re young the weather doesn’t stop the party.
Check out the ending makeup look, all she need to do once she return home is hair then get dressed….Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!
