Working as Key Makeup Artist for awards shows

I can remember the first call I received 8 years ago to be a makeup artist for the BET Hip Hop Honors here in Atlanta, Ga. I was so excited yet very nervous, and the night before the show the Key Makeup Artist called at 3am to tell me he missed his flight from LA and would not be attending the show.

I was literally thrown into a Key/Supervisor position on that show and never looked back.

I have been hired for every BET HipHop Honors show since that day.

I have also had the opportunity to be the Key/Lead Makeup Artist for Evening Of The Stars and Soul Train Awards.

The work is hard but so very rewarding when you see the finished product and know that you were part of that awesome production. 

I am including a few pics of me behind the scenes of some of the shows.
