On November 21, Temptu were holding a makeup event at the Saks Fifth Ave store and was personally invited. The duration of the event was from 5-7pm. The event had a special guest costume designer Patricia Field and I had the pleasure of being introduced to her by my makeup artist friend Lora Brooks who knows her personally. Despite of her age, Patricia is a free-spirited, down to earth kind of gal and still lives and breathes fashion. The event had free drinks, food and were giving free makeovers for anyone who were interested. Tmeptu makeup artists were using a live model to airbrush designs all over her body and it was very creative and beautiful. Temptu uses airbrushing instead of traditonal use of brush or sponge applications. I received a makeover by a male makeup artist and this was my first time having airbrush makeup applied to my face and my very, very first time putting blush on my cheeks. Lol. My face looked amazing and I received compliments from a few people. I look forward to more future events similar to this one. To see more pictures of the event, go to “fashion events” in the drop down on the menu. Enjoy!

On October 31stThe Set NYC presented a masquerade runway show called the Masquerade Art Gala With midnight fashion show sponsored by Elucid Magazine. It was a great show and I really enjoyed myself. I took a lot of photos of great costumes and of the runway models and met all sorts of people. From songwriters, singers, fashion designers, bloggers, photographers, artists and more.. I had the opportunity to engage in some photos with a few models and one of the fashion designers Jason Christopher Peters, who attended and held showcased his fashion line in the show. Display of art and fundraising of Abolitionista which is a non profit organization that protests against children being trafficked into the sex industry. I met the founder, Thomas Estler, who was very passionate about this cause. The team asked for donations; I donated $5 for the cause. The money went to the financing of manga books that would empower children and inform themselves of predators of trafficking through comic books. I enjoyed every minute of the event and I look forward to seeing more showcases. Thanks for reading and stay uniquely fashionable!
