This was an EPIC night. I had the honor of working with celebrity Makeup Artist, Sharon Gault and Celebrity Hair Stylist, Sean James, both artists represented by Opus Beauty and together our team made the beautiful even more beautiful... Our clients: Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Martin Sheen and some of the cast from Glee... to name a few!
I'm all set up and ready to work!
Products I used: Makeup Forever Anti-Shine, All Matte as a base. On the men, Select Cover Up by MAC, and Makeup Forever Very Matte Powders. On the women who weren't on stage, I gave them a more dewy finish and used Makeup Forever HD foundation with Laura Mercier Radiance Tinted Moisturizer as a base.
What a perfect shot of the evening! Sean James working on Brad Pitt, I was so excited to assist him with Mr. Pitt! Martin Sheen finishing up and Matthew Morrison getting powdered.
Me and Key Hair Stylist, Sean James working on one of the producers of the event. She loved it!!
Our Team, with our client list above!
Backstage with Pitt and Clooney... tough day in the office! The Makeup and Hair team were backstage ready to touch up the cast before they headed to the red carpet!
And of course, I had to hit the red carpet as well! This was, in fact, my first red carpet as a brunette!
I did hair for Matthew Morrison from Glee and the beautiful Sally, did his makeup. #teamwork
And for the after party, we had the best view of the night! Mr. George Clooney, looking as debonair as ever.
And to finish the night off, Sally and I took a sassy lil picture with the sweetie pie from Glee, Darren!

(1/3/11) 3. Admiring the Work of Others: I caught this moment while I was backstage at the Zac Posen show in NY during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The look was created by Global Makeup Artist, Charlotte Willer for Maybelline Cosmetics. I had an opportunity to interview her after the show. One of my favorite things she said regarding the idea of beauty was, "it's imperfection that people love." She also said she had a blast creating this look for Zac! I had a blast taking pictures of her work. (check out her nails too)
(1/4/11) 4. Makeup as Art. Coloring outside the lines makes me smile. I delight in creating makeup that you wouldn't necessarily wear on a day to day basis, but something you would photograph and hang up in your room. I'm inspired by the Arts and Craft Store, examining the colorful items that catch my eye and envisioning how I can use it as makeup or in the hair. Here's a look I produced, along with the help of my sister Maria Blaich who keyed the hair.
