ESSENCE Magazine Covers

When I received word that I would be working with Jennifer Hudson for the cover of ESSENCE Magazine, I was super excited as this is my 4Th cover and 3rd with Jennifer. The first time I did the cover it was with Jennifer and she and publicist made me believe it was for the inside of the magazine only to surprise me with the cover news! I cried with excitement because I always dreamed of doing makeup for their cover. This was truly a dream come true. Every photoshoot has been a blast full of music, great energy and good food. Here are some pics of my ESSENCE photoshoots and a behind the scenes video of Jennifer's first cover shoot. Enjoy!

Essence Honoree- Jennifer Hudson

Here's a look I did for Jennifer Hudson for the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon. She was recognized along with some other incredible women such as Viola Davis, Angela Bassett and Loretta Devine. She had a gorgeous purple dress, soft flowing hair so I gave her soft smokey eyes, fluttery eyelashes & a nude lip to compliment her overall look. Lil David escorted his Mommy down the red cute!

Jennifer Hudson Christens Disney's "The Dream" Cruise Ship

What fun it was to accompany Jennifer Hudson as she participated in the Christening Ceremony for Disney's newest ship, The Dream. Jennifer was named the official Godmother of the ship. She was so excited to be apart of this incredible day as she has a deep love for Disney. She was once apart of the Disney boat cast years ago before her American Idol days. Here's some of the moments that were captured.

Jennifer Hudson's Look of the Night!

Here's a FAB look I did for Jennifer Hudson as she performed for Jerry Jones the owner of the Dallas Cowboys during the Super Bowl festivities. They not only picked us up in a private jet, when we landed there was a beautiful DC helicopter waiting to air lift us to the site for her performance. Great night...

Spring Forward

Springtime has finally come upon us and it's time to be daring, fun & BOLD! I'm loving that it's all about color this season. The main focus is ultra bright lips in reds, pinks & orange, the key is to find the right shade that works with your skin tone. Play up your favorite features whether it be nice cheekbones, luscious lips or beautiful eyes just have fun with color. Remember just because you're wearing pink doesn't mean you have to wear pink lipstick, so step out of the box and surprise yourself. :) Please visit your makeup counters to view all of the spring collections.


Letoya Luckett

I had the opportunity of working with Grammy Winning Singer/Song Writer, Letoya Luckett and I have to say she had the most amazing skin ever! There is no doubt she maintains a daily skincare regimen. We had a great day full of laughs, good fun and oh of course work! Here's a pic of her and the one and only Doug E. Fresh.

Maxwell Performs at "Christmas in Washington"

Watch Maxwell as he performs for the President & First Lady during TNT's Christmas in Washington. He sang two songs and not only did I enjoy his performances, I loved his look! I almost didn't make it in time for his performance because my flight had been canceled several times..but I made it just in the nick of time.
