Exclusive: Stephen Moleski Talks First Meeting With Kim Kardashian, “Smoke And Mirrors” Lashes [Video]

30 Aug

Friday was a magical day for me at J. Mont Makeup and Waxing Studio where I was invited to interview famed makeup artist Stephen Moleski.

I was first introduced to this makeup connoisseur via YouTube when I spotted a tutorial of him doing Kim Kardashian’s signature smokey eye.

I fell in love with him then and I fell in love with Moleski in person after attending his #SMBLashEvent where we spoke on a number of topics including his first time meeting the Kim K, his tips for a five minute face and his”Smoke And Beauty” lashes enjoyed by Melanie B, The Haqq Twins and Estelle alike.

On Kim Kardashian: “I had no idea who she was. I knew she was Paris Hilton’s friend so I had no idea what to expect. She comes in, she’s so sweet, and she’s so tiny but I’m 6’5. The rest is literally history. I couldn’t tell if she liked my makeup, she’s very reserved and quiet.

She said, “Let me get your number.” And I’ve heard that many times before where they get your number, your card and whatever [that’s it]. I just remember the next day she was like, “Hi this is Kim Kardashian.” And I’m like, “What?” I still didn’t get the whole gist of it, I just thought she was a pretty Armenian girl who had money because she pulled up in a white Range Rover. We still work together to this day. “

On A Five Minute Face: “Is there a skincare regimen beforehand? Good makeup starts with good skincare. A five minute face consists of a tinted moisturizer, concealer, setting with a loose powder, bronzer, mascara, lip gloss and you’re done.”

On His Favorite “Smoke And Mirrors” Lashes: My favorite lash for every eye shape and every woman is the New York lash. The length is moderate,the size is full, it gives you a beautiful lash. The one I use the most with my jobs is the Vegas. Also I use the two of them together. Sometimes I’ll put the full strip of the New York and the longest piece of the Vegas…they’re universal, you can layer them and blend them together.

I’m so excited to try ALL of Stephen’s “Smoke And Beauty” lashes…if you missed it before, check out my previous post on the “Nashvilles” (which I LOVE)  here!

Exclusive: I Got My #RedStarAccess On With Wale…[Video]

17 Aug

Sooo I had a blast last night with my co-workers during the Atlanta stop of Wales Heineken Red Star Access tour.

I got a chance to chat with Mr. Folarin before he hit the stage and we spoke on a number of topics including his Eleven One Eleven mixtape, his Ambition album and movement and his love for giving back.

The last time I interviewed Wale he was on tour with J. Cole and it was right before his birthday.

Instead of asking for gifts, he asked for people to donate to Africa through a charitable clean water campaign.

I asked my fellow Virgo if he planned on doing anything like that this year especially considering the famine in Somalia and later asked him if he planned on doing anymore poetry that I know some ladies love.

All in all I think the event went well, Wale was cool on the red carpet…he later brought out Two Chainz and of course Pill who gave an amped up performance of “Pacman.”

A special thank you to Allison from Team Epiphany for inviting me and my team out! 🙂
