I started my EMF weekend doing makeup on one of the ladies from Essence Magazine.
When I was told that Mikki
Taylor, Editor-at-Large requested me once again I was ecstatic. She needed makeup for the private reception on Thursday evening. Mikki
is an icon, a jet setter, an insightful visionary, an industry leader, a phenomenal woman, and most of all she oozes beauty.
The highlight of the evening was receiving a personal call from Mikki to return back to the hotel. She invited up the penthouse to chat amongst friends. It was one of the best experiences ever.
There have been many times when people will say to me, "why weren't you in the club?" or "we didn't see you backstage". But where I was that evening, is where a person in my career should have been and was privileged to be. This is how I kicked off my...ESSENCE MUSIC FESTIVAL.
