Makeup Artist for Go Red for Women Event Syracuse

February brings heart health awareness by the American Heart Association. This is a subject that is near to my own heart. Heart health has been an issue for both of my parents and their families.  I am a member of The CNY Modeling Meetup Group. The group provided models, hair, makeup and photo coverage for "Go Red for Women photo and art exhibit" on February 4th. I was the makeup artist for the event.
Models: Jeannette Young, Jessica P. and Kate Herrmann

The exhibit featured artwork submitted by Syracuse artists (including one of the models, Kate) showing what "Go Red for Women" means to them. The models served as ambassadors for the American Heart Association and passed out "fit facts" to attendees.

 The day after the event I lost my Grandfather to a 17+ year battle with heart disease. He was proud I had volunteered to do makeup for this event. Love you Grandpa. XOXO

Photo shoot w/ Shavonne Joliee Photograpy

Had a great time as makeup artist( & little bit of a stylist) for a shoot done with Shavonne at her studio, Shavonne Joliee Photography, in Syracuse.
Shavonne is an up & coming photographer that is starting to take Syracuse by storm. She has an amazing eye for unique angles, lighting & locations. I was excited to work on this project. It has been our first opportunity to work as an exclusive team of makeup artist & photographer.
The model Lauren Ziemba is new to the modeling scene, but you'd never know it from the shots Shavonne got. Lauren is a natural in front of the camera. With Shavonne's expert direction the results are amazing.

I loved getting a chance to work with my new pro airbrush system from TEMPTU. It gave a beautiful finish to Lauren's skin that lasted all day.
I look forward to doing more work with both Shavonne & Lauren in the future.
