Sometimes this job can be rewarding in more ways than one. From painting celebrities and models to traveling the globe.

Just recently, I had the biggest 11 day whirlwind of the year so far. Leaving LA on a Sunday to meet Country Music Artists, Dan+Shay, in NYC for their new album release’s press junket. In two days we went from magazines to photo shoots and TV/Radio stations. The big excitement landed us at The GMA studios where D+S played their hit single before flying back to LA. BTW their album dropped while we were there and hit number one overnight!

Once back in LA, there was a down day to regroup before heading to The Ellen Show on Thursday. Once again the Guys played their hit song and made the girls in the audience scream with delight:) Gladly, my associate Sam and I ran into another makeup friend in the next dressing room. She just happened to be there grooming Spiderman AKA Andrew Garfield!! What a fun coincidence:)

Two days later we were all to meet up again, this time in Las Vegas for the ACM Awards. Once settled in the hotel that Sunday morning, I was introduced to a couple of other talented artists, Frankie Ballard and Brett Eldredge. Both requiring light grooming as well as D+S. Brett, however, was up for an award that night. I was lucky enough to receive the assignment of grooming him to walk the red carpet followed by his live performance at the show that night, looking and sounding amazing!

The next day I flew from LV to Boston for a two day fashion shoot. There, I was greeted by great friends and and clients I hadn’t seen in ages. After shooting all day on the second day, I arrived back in LA to sleep in my own bed by Midnight.

My m. vie Mineral Mist was a staple and got us all calmly through the week!

XOXO

P.S. Forgot to mention a best friend’s Birthday party in San Diego that took place in the midst of the whirlwind…a good time was had by all!
