The Emmy Awards: like Cinderella at the Ball
(they don't announce all the Emmy nominations on tv, but I really hope that How Do I Look won, they were nominated and I will be on their big 2 -hour special as a guest judge and make-up artist on October 17th, Monday at 8 I think, on the Style channel)
Even though I do my hair and make-up...my sweet friends said they wanted me to feel like a princess and they both wanted to do my hair and make-up for me so I could feel fancy! I love them both!
Bethanie Triplette on the left (blondie), did my hair and the fabulous, Priscilla Ono, who I met through our friend and amazing make-up artist, Sharon Gault aka Mama Make-Up, who works on Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and with David LaChapelle - Priscilla assists her and work on celebs like Paris Hilton too. I was honored that Priscilla did my make-up- Sharon was busy doing celebs for the red carpet. These girl made me look so pretty!
Necklace was BCBG, I don't know how much that cost either. And my ring was $5 for the cheap store at The Grove, again! ha ha ha
www.beautylish.com, laughing in the lobby. I got to invite another "beauty insider" to come with me, so Elena came with me to laugh, bring as many Governor's ball cake-pops home, and limp with me in our painful shoes back to our hotels.
Dinair, creator and originator of using make-up and airbrushing together, and me...backstage where they were the official make-up for the Emmy's and the Governor's Ball! I even got airbrushed with setting spray so my pretty make-up Priscilla did would have even more staying power!
I love Dina! She taught me how to do airbrush make-up. I was so honored she invited me to go backstage and to go with her to the Emmy's and the Governor's ball! She had to leave early to fly out to Toronto because they are opening in Sear's stores in Canada there this today! I love you Dina...thank you for making a dream come true!
I was still in amazement and I unclipped all the hair-extension clips and removed my fake lashes and washed away all the fun "dazzling" from the night...
and as I left the door man gave me the best compliment ever- he said, "hands down the most stunning dress of the night!"..... I told him he "made my night"...A mom of 4 that just had a baby 7 months ago..couldn't enjoy that compliment more!
huge love and fancy ruffley Versace dresses, that I could never afford to buy (ha ha), kandee-ella
