Mary Kay Shines With the Stars

01-17-2013 7:16 AM

As a celebrity makeup artist, I was thrilled when Mary Kay asked me to join their team at the Pre-Golden Globe Kari Feinstein Style Lounge in Hollywood, California!   Familiar with many celebrities in the business, I knew I’d see friendly faces, eager to get their hands on some fabulous swag to gear up for the Golden Globe Awards.

Well, I was right, as fashion-forward celebrities of all calibers visited the W Hollywood Hotel on January 11th and 12th.  Among other brands, Mary Kay had the privilege of hosting their own booth, where I assisted with grabbing the attention of celebrities and rubbing elbows with the stars, or in my case, my friends and clients!  Mary Kay garnered tremendous interest from Hollywood royalty.

We emphasized a handful of Mary Kay’s favorite products including the new Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick, with its moisturizing formula and sleek look.  Fellow celebrity makeup artist Stella Kae and I had the honor of providing makeovers and touch ups to celebrities like Jamie Chung and Shanola Hampton.  We even got to speak about MK Men products with TV personality Mario Lopez!  Everyone from Leah Thompson of “Back to the Future” to “Glee” star Vanessa Lengies, was excited to receive golden makeovers and pose for photos to show off their lip looks and Mary Kay “swag!”

In addition to True Dimensions Lipstick, held in a cute golden clutch, celebrities were also excited to take home a 50th Anniversary Special-Edition Mini Compact filled with a “Golden Look,” compiled by celebrity makeup artists.  The Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colors and Mary Kay Highlighting Powder were a huge hit among the stars and many requested additional products for their friends and family.  I gave a quick demo of how the new Mary Kay True Dimensions packaging works and they expressed interest in the new lipstick cases.   One celebrity even said she loved the sleek, silver case as it allowed for an easy find in a fully packed makeup case! 

We were so pleased to hear that many celebrities were already familiar with the Mary Kay brand!  It was such a pleasure to work with Mary Kay and receive such an overwhelming positive reaction from the Hollywood elite. We were truly ecstatic by the enthusiasm we experienced with these important tastemakers!
