June 14th – Makeovers & Martinis

Update:
Hey everyone! The event was so exciting! Sandra gave a total of 4 makeovers and I gave a total of 3. The art there was absolutely amazing, it was hard to keep myself at my station haha. Gallons to Ounces preformed great music- a great mix of alternative, jazz, and soft rock. I also ended up premiering my makeup company with the host, which was such a great opportunity. I hope to definitely set another event up soon in DC and also NY. Stay tuned!

May 19th – Charity & Volunteering for kids in DC

On May 19, 2012 our team “27″ (to celebrate Trisha’s birthday) including Trisha, Ive, and I were assigned to a DC elementary school for Hands on DC to help clean up the school and to support public schools in the DMV area. The Charity event was a huge success! We were able to raise $1,346 to contribute to restoring the DC public schools and ended up being the top ranked team for the event.

Special thanks to all of our contributors!

I Found Molly! With Cedric Gervais

On February 11th and 12th I had the opportunity to work on set with 8112 Studios once again on a music video for Cedric Gervais called “Molly.” The first day was shot at 206 Studios in Alexandria, VA and the second day was shot at District in Adams Morgan, DC. My makeup station was set up on the level above the shooting, and I had the pleasure of watching the filming of the music video concurrent with applying makeup on the featured models. It was a long day of shooting, I did over 30 makeovers, but I enjoyed every minute of it. All the girls were friendly and enthusiastic about their roles. Here are some behind the scenes photos from upstairs: My makeup application, The hair stylists Yanni Metallinos, Sergio Giovanni, and Jhake Alejandro, Me and the director, Nicholas Cambata, with go-go dancer, Aymi Ayala, and the finished makeovers on extras Jana Dias and Valerie Downs:
