Words can not express how elated I was when I received an email from Tilane Jones, Managing Director of AFFRM and Co-Producer of Middle of Nowhere that Director of Middle Of Nowhere, Ava DuVernay would need my makeup service during Sundance Film Festival. Both Tiffany and I were ecstatic that we would have this talented and amazing woman in our chair inside the Sundance Co-Op Lounge. We had many amazing women stop by but Ava and Emayatzy brought a great energy to the L'OREAL Paris lounge. Ava also made Sundance history by being the first black female to win The Best Director Prize for her movie "Middle Of Nowhere". Ava invited both Tiffany and I to the movie premier, what a sweet gesture. The movie was ground breaking and brilliantly written a must see when it hits theaters.
On one of visits to the L'OREAL Paris lounge I wanted to give her a fresh not overpowering makeup look with a little glam. So I focused on her lips and kept everything else complimentary to her skin tone. Below is one of Ava makeup palette while at Sundance Film Festival.
