One of my besties just happens to also be the best makeup artist in Pittsburgh. Am I biased? You bet I am. The truth is that I did a brief stint as a promotional makeup artist back in another life, so even though she’s in my circle of trust, I am also SUUUUUPER picky about who does my makeup (read: no one really does).
As I begin my preparation for the upcoming Oscars party here in Pittsburgh, I know I need to up the bar from last year. In 2017, I wore this crazy “out of the box” dress as I was launching Moxie Mama, but now I want to push my whole evening look a little further.
Fortunately, Jennifer decided to launch her own YouTube makeup tutorial channel last week as I was contemplating my direction. She asked me to be a model for the smoky eye video and I jumped at the chance.
We had a terrible challenge getting it done as we are both ridiculous shenaniganziers.
Jennifer’s son is a fantastic photographer and (now) video producer also! He tried to keep us on topic, which didn’t always go well. He was not as amused as we were.
I LOVE the final result! We may play with the colors a bit depending on the dress I choose, but I this is exactly what I’m going for!
