L'OREALPARIS was one of the sponsors for Real Simple Magazine Holiday Pop-Up Shop in Bryant Park from December 8th-13th. This year I experienced so many highlights working this assignment doing fun makeup. On Wednesday night was the private VIP Party with @djparhomage on the wheels spinning so many great hits.
Thursday morning was dedicated to bloggers from 10am-11am and at 11am Candance Nelson founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes did a demo on stage. The L'OREAL Boutique was swamp with consumers that we didn't get a chance to try any of the cupcakes. You know how I am a fan of cupcakes so I was a little sad.
On Saturday Real Simple Magazine Editor Sarah Humphreys did a cooking demo with Top Chef Judge Gail Simmons. Later in the afternoon I hit the stage with Holiday Makeup for the evening. My model was Erika a single mother of 2 from Westchester, NY. I shared with Erika in the audience how to achieve a quick glam makeup & hair look for the holidays.
On Sunday I did full makeup on the stunning Dylan Lauren founder ofDylan's Candy Bar. Dylan is such a lady, very glam, that I would be honor to work with her again. Luv her style! Then the fabulous Tiffany Hall Scaramana, my bestie did a demo on Holiday Looks for day. I was very excited to meet and do makeup on Daniele Fiori, founder of Sweet Dani B, She was so cool to work with. Her husband took a picture of us so it should be on her blog by now. From 4pm-8pm Real Simple started Happy Hour with @djpayhomage on the wheels of steels, this guy is a beast...luv him! One of the helpers gave us a REAL SIMPLE lesson on how to dougie.
On Monday both Tiffany and I worked with Real Simple Magazine Managing Editor Kristin Van Ogtrop. Last year I did both hair & makeup so it was a treat to work with Kristin again...luv her. After the event was over we decided to do a staff dinner at The Australian, now that was so much. Always luv to bond with the Pro Team, our Manager Christian, and Tech Manager, Michael. What a blast we had that evening.
Tuesday after the event was over Real Simple Magazine put together a wrap party. Guess who showed up...Special Guest, TEYONCE.
Overall a great week working with the PRO TEAM, the hours were long but we had so much fun. Meet so many of our consumers and followers. Took lots of pictures so if you see any floating send them my way. But I'm sharing my glam life with you. See Ya Bye!
