Lauren Brenner is the toughest woman I know, she's a tough fitness trainer and owner of Pure Power Boot Camp
a Marine Corps based boot camp. I met Lauren through a special woman who I recently met while doing her makeup for the International Latino Film Festival
. When Lauren mentioned she was looking for a makeup artist, Elizabeth Gardner thought of me. The first day Lauren emailed me it was the day Hurricane Irene hit. Lauren was like can you come over right now, but of course I reschedule the consultation in the middle of Fashion Week. What was I thinking...the evening of the consultation Lauren and I talked and talked like old pals. Lauren knew exactly the makeup look she wanted and the day of her wedding. I met her at the hair salon but I did her makeup at Wave Hill
. Lauren hired me to stay with her all day so she would not have to fuss with her makeup.
Wave Hill is the most beautiful garden alongside the Hudson River I have seen in the Bronx. A perfect place to have an outdoor wedding in New York. I fell in love with Lauren & Michael, what a great couple.
