Makeup I did for the Michael Bastain NYFW show today 2/4/14

Today I had the opportunity to groom and do makeup on 3 handsome male models for The Michael Bastain NYFW show! The show was keyed by amazing celebrity makeup artist AJ Crimson! The makeup direction for the show was brushed up eyebrows, dewy flawless skin, and a soft flushed lip! There was a mask applied prior to makeup application to keep the skin hydrated. I gotta say, it felt great doing runway makeup again, I haven't done a NYFW in 3 years!

New Clean Beauty work and a shoot with a personal client!

Alot people who know me know I don't shoot as often as I used to, so when I do I try to make sure to do as much as I can in a day lol. Me and my favorite photographer Lenox Fontaine collaborated and we made some magic! We shot some clean beauty/advertising shots with model Polina from silent models and some personal shots for my client Denyce Smith (who is 40 and looks incredible, NO WRINKLES!!)

My latest Editorial in Ellements Magazine

I had so much working on this editorial which was shot on my birthday. The photographer Marcelo Cantu and Hairstylist Kyle Malone are amazing to work with. We had a great model from q models, she was such a trooper! Also the day before my cell phone was stolen, but I still had an amazing day! The photographer Marcelo Cantu also surprised me with a birthday cake! Honestly I think this shoot is some of my best makeup work! what do u guys think?!

I taught my first makeup class!

On August 11th, 2013 in NYC I taught my first makeup class! It was the most humbling experience I've ever had in my life and the day was so perfect! I had a group of 25 students who we so kind and respectful. I served breakfast, lunch and cake and the class. Each students also received a #teamtheresafrancine t-shirt as well as a goodie bag for attending the class. The class sold out in a week which was amazing! I had many great family and friends who helped me out on my special day such as My best friend/sister Maureen, My best friend Catherine Shim, My nephew Jonathan Gardiner, My makeup assistant Nay Denise, My fellow industry friend and Amazing MUA Bp Carmouche', and Makeup Artist Ria! You guys were all so wonderful, words cannot express how thankful I am to have had u guys there to help me! I also had 3 amazing models Jackie Alise (who stepped in for me last minute and did such a great job), Crystal Boyer, and Janique!  I taught my famous "wet makeup" look, highlighting and contouring, brows, airbrush foundation, rainbow ombre' lip look!

I also wanted to say a special thank you to the sponsors of the class, Ellements Magazine, Amor En Cosmetics, Shadow Shields, IMYB! I appreciate you guys help making this event such a success!
