It really does take a village in putting an event together. With the help of celebrity hair and makeup team of Alma (makeup) and Saya (hair), I was camera ready all night from the glaring lights of the red carpet to the runway and even in the frenetic flow backstage. As for product, I really like Alma’s use of Kryolan eyeshadow and Media Pro’s high Definition Foundation. I also liked how Saya smoothed my hair with Tigi’s Bed Head. Every hair stayed in place and so did my makeup. No small feat!
