Red Carpet Makeup For Monique Coleman

While working on an independent feature film last fall, I had the pleasure of getting to know some really amazing actresses. The characters they were portraying weren't exactly the type to spend time in front of the mirror, so the time spent in the makeup chair every day was more about seamless, "no makeup" makeup. But when you spend about a month on set with someone ensuring they don't look like they are wearing makeup, all you really want to do is doll them up!

So of course I love when they call me for a red carpet event! Most recently I had the pleasure of working with Monique Coleman for two events. First for the "Half the Sky Movement: The Game" launch, and later that week for the NYC primiere of "Girl Rising."

For the first look we wanted to have a fun pop of color on the lips, and the second look we chose to play up her eyes with smokey shadow. Monique loves to experiment with makeup and is just the sweetest. I cannot wait to work together again!
