Last week I had major plans for my day off that included reorganizing my closet! I know, big fabulous plans. Ha! While in said closet, Dollface’s VP & Brand Manager (who also happens to be be my husband Josh) calmly says “Would you like to do Eve’s makeup tonight for her show with T.I. & Ashanti?”. I immediately responded with exactly what you’d think I’d say– “WHAT?!”. He repeated and still standing in the closet I said, “I don’t understand what you are saying to me. Eve? The rapper, Eve?”. He explained that I was recommended to her management and they were ready to book me for her performance. I’ve worked with celebrities before but this was the first time I was going to work with a face I was inspired by in the beginning of my makeup career. Bold colors and fierce looks on a beautiful face with rich tones. Being a fan of her music, acting, and makeup… I felt an overwhelming sense of excitement to do her justice.
Once I arrived and set up in her suite, I was immediately comforted by her sweet spirit and down-to-earth personality! We laughed a lot, shared stories, and beauty tips. We designed a dramtatic smoky, yet sparkley cat eye paired with a poppy red lip. Here’s the breakdown of all the products used:
After she was all ready to go, Josh & I were invited to the show! Walking in to her show with her is a moment I will hold close forever. It was an incredible experience and I am truly grateful the call came in especially when I was available and ready. Please visit iTunes and download Eve’s newest album, Lip Lock! The lyrics will move you just like the beats.
Until next time,
