Boys need love too - makeup love that is! ;)

Hello Beauty Addicts!! Welcome Back!!

It's not often that you get the opportunity to do makeup on a male. So when I got the call, I immediately jumped at the chance! It was so much fun!

I received a phone call from a photographer Clemente Jandaya. He needed a makeup artist for a photo shoot for a male. I immediately (without sounding desperate of course lol) said YES!


I said to myself, "makeup on a male? this is easy money, I'll be in and out in no time". Clearly, I didn't get all the details. More on that in a second.

So I get to the photo shoot early. I always like to arrive early so I can set up before the client arrives. A hour passes by and the client is not there yet! ....and then men talk about women!

Finally, the client arrives (1 hour late) and to my surprise, it wasn't 1 model -- it was 3.

WOW! Ok no problem!

So we get to talking (the client and I) and I find out that he's an artist who used to be in a group called Los Galactikos, a merengue group from the Dominican Republic. He was breaking out to do a solo album. Being of Dominican descent, I quickly fell in love with the single when I heard it!

The other two models I was working on that day were the Producer, Lenny 357 and the CEO of Royalty Musik, Luis.


This was, by far, the most fun I've had at a photo shoot in a long time.

The photographer was amazing! The artist Yobany (the one with the solo album) is super talented as are Lenny and Luis.

And as if that isn't enough, I was told recently that I get to work with them again! I'm super excited that I get the opportunity to be the official makeup artist for their video!

Enjoy the pictures....and check out the single, soon-to-be a hit Besushi!

Until next time Beauty Addicts!!
