Celebrity Makeup Artist in the Making!!

On Sunday, January 8, 2012 I had the honor and privilege to be the makeup artist for the 16th Annual Urban Wheel Awards to benefit Emerging Diversity Education Fund. It was held at the Motor City Casino Hotel Sound Board!! The UWA is the official Multicultural event of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) held every year in Detroit! It was hosted by Award Winning actress and my Soror (AKA) Phylicia Rashad and John Quinones, Emmy Award winning co-anchor of ABC newsmagazine "Primetime!" Among the celebrities included Actress Debbi Morgan, Gina Hiraizumi and Detroit Lions linebacker, Justin Durant. I did makeup for Debbi Morgan for the Fox 2 News Morning interview and for the award show as well as makeup for Phylicia Rashad. Talk about EXCITED?!?!? It was the best experience yet! I am very thankful for my Sorors Maria Bobo and Marjorie Staten for giving me this opportunity! I'm forever grateful!! This was HUGE for Jungle Rose Beauty!!!!!
