So what goes on behind the scene of a fun COVERGIRL
& Ebony Magazine
photo shoot, well I'm here to share what my day was like.
The treat to working on this assignment was being a part of the photo shoot. Before Asia & Brittany arrived the video crew filmed B-Rolls of me unpacking my makeup kit. Throughout the photo shoot they filmed me doing makeup on the girls giving them fun beauty tips. After the girls finished shooting with the talented photographer Keith Major
I was up to do all of my speaking parts.
So elated that both COVERGIRL & Ebony Magazine selected me to be the makeup artist for this assignment. Definitely a dream come true...below you will see all of the COVERGIRL Queen Collection makeup I used on the girls to create their stunning Black Girls Rock ad.
