I was honored once again to be asked to do makeup for Laura Kirkpatriclk's Laura's Angels fashion show. Laura is best known as the runner-up of cycle 13 of America's Next Top Model. She was voted fan favorite in a poll the show held after the conclusion of the series. To see her come back and support the community here in Kentucky is amazing. Using all local talent and all the proceeds go to charity. Laura's Beautiful Minds Dyslexia charity, along with Fund for the Arts and the Family and Children's place were the chosen charities. With all artists donating their time and talent all proceeds went to the charities. The theme this go around was disco fever so there was glitter and metallics everywhere.
At the start of makeup I felt very calm working on model and good friend Katya Estes. Working on someone I am very familiar with made me feel very comfortable, maybe a little too comfortable though as I still had a lot of models ahead of me.. Our makeup sponsor was Dior and we were using their Airflash product. Having never used it before I was a bit worried. Once I started using the Airflash I really liked it. The product glided on smoothly and gave a nice sheer coverage which is what we were looking for. As with any type show the closer we got to show time the crazy things got. Having models I'm friends with like Karoline Hix keep me calm under pressure along with many others in my chair really put me at ease. We had an amazing makeup team and after 125 models I would says we did an amazing job.
