How Fabulous!! I was invited to the Pamper Parlor, hosted by Flawless Make Up Art’s Joy Randall and Jameka Whitten (JSW Media). All of what and WHO are fashionably forward and trendy are in attendance here, at the Residences of Southpark. The ambiance is superb as I’m surrounded with a bird’s eye veiw of shopping frenzies who are in search of good deals, good conversation, and a glimpse of upcoming seasonal trends, powered by Charlotte’s Style Week.
Furthermore, as serendipity will call it to be, Attorney/Writer C.M. Whitener sat next to me as I wrote this blog … another beautiful sister who is brainy and whose knowledge and style seems to come out in her curly natural hair. She’s pretty dope too. I enjoyed her energy and substance. You may check out her site: http://www.yourboyfriendsbestgirlfriend.com.
Stephanie Glover of Meet the Fresh is here sporting her “Virtuous Woman in Training” t-shirt designed by T.Strong “The Style Mavin.” A pretty, pink baby tee with Proverbs 31 listed just below the logo.
Welp, that’s all for now, I must go schmooze with the good people of Charlotte and sample Ezikiel Cheney’s Walnut & Cranberry salad. I hear it’s tasty and healthy! 🙂
“Don’t miss the next Pamper Parlor … a deliciously well-dressed event”
In the picture above, I sampled the following products at the Pamper Parlor. Just enough pop for a Sunday afternoon.Advertisements

It’s Monday, and Celeb MUA Joy Randall teaches you how to give yourself a flawless coverage with the use of foundation. In the words of Randall herself: “application is everything.” And she’s right. With the correct strokes and right amount of makeup your skin can look flawless!
Furthermore, when I’m preparing for a night out, I use concealer to highlight my eyes. I apply this on first. If you try it at home, you should look like a raccoon. (chuckles) Then apply I apply powder foundation using circular strokes, making sure I look even all over. And ‘ta-dahhh’ that’s my personal flawless coverage; it doesn’t take too much to look smoking HOT. Using concealer and highlighting techniques takes years off, ladies.
When preparing for work, happy hour, or a night out, use some of these tips to create that flawless look!
Happy Monday, All! Here’s the video, courtesy of Meet the Fresh:

Celebrity Make Up Artist Joy Randall really knows how to ‘werk’ a holiday RAZZLE DAZZLE eyeshadow and make it pop especially when paired with a black dress. We know it’s a recession and women or either spicing up a classic black dress or purchasing on a budget. And no matter what you choose to put on, we want to make YOU the LIFE of the PARTY.
Here is a 3-step that’ll get your holiday started on the right track–Razzle Dazzle, Ladies!
First, apply a dark green eyeshadow from your lower to about mid eye with a flat brush (similar to a foundation brush). In this case, Joy uses a dark green pigment by MAC. Smooth it from the inner to outer corners. Check out this MAC Golden Olive.
Tip: “Because it is pigment in a jar, you can apply it anywhere from lids to lips.”
Second, use Fix Plus spray to apply MAC Antique Gold to make it sparkle, continuing with the flat brush. Apply the shadow from lower to mid eye.
Finally, to finish your look, line lower lid with liquid black liner. Try MAC Fluidline.
And the finished product should look as FAB as this!

Nikkipanache.Com took a closer look at Joy Randall‘s inspiration and lit path to Celebrity Make Up Artist–“Visage Artiste.” Her elaborate resume in entertainment, from freelancing to VH1’s Fantasia For Real, has catapulted her into the world of celebrity, and we cannot wait to see what else she accomplishes! Here we are one-on-one with Joy Randall, a piece written by Hope Rivers.
“Make-up is an essential part of what you’re looking at on a daily basis.” Joy Randall
NP: Complete the following sentence: Flawless Make-up Art is …
JR: A business about Make-Up Artistry
NP: Flawless Make-up Art is a fairly new venture (2yrs) and you have already arrived at the new and well deserved title of “Celebrity Make-up Artist.” You have worked with Fantasia as well as major networks and publications such as MTV, VH1 and People magazine. As the visionary behind the Flawless brand what are your thoughts on sudden success?
JR: Success is just all in perception. I found that my ideas of success have changed through my experiences. And a lot of what the general public thinks success is….someone can be just as happy having a family and healthy children as they can be being a celebrity make-up artist or a celebrity stylist or being a celebrity, period. You have no idea what people really go through on all levels. Everybody just wants a piece of mind at the end of the day, and you just never know what people are going through. So just don’t take what you see on TV or hear on the radio for face value.
NP: Have you found yourself setting new goals quicker than you thought you would have to?
JR: No. I find that life has a way of doing what it does. And so you can set all the goals you want. We all have goals. We all have things we strive to do and that we want to do but God has to be first. And God is going to teach you lessons and lead the way….period. You can have a complete road that you want to walk and God can take you straight up to the right. I still have things I want to do of course, but I know that God has put me in specific places for specific reasons. So I honestly try not to set the goals as much anymore just pray to God that he will lead me to where I need to go.
NP: In another 2 years where do you expect the Flawless brand to be?
JR: I expect it to be more visible in this industry. Flawless is about a network for make-up artists. It’s not about working for a company it’s not about what companies I’ve worked for … Freelance make-up artists, that’s what we do. We do our artistry for a business. In terms of the networks that are coming here such as BET and VH1- corporate type gigs- I want them to know that this is a resource for hiring freelance make-up artists.
NP: You have worked for impactful cosmetic companies that shape the way we think about make up including MAC, L’Oreal, and Cover Girl and yet you still made a conscious decision to work for yourself. What factors led you to the creation of Flawless Make-up Art?
JR: There is one definite reason, and it’s because I want to do make-up and I don’t want to sell it per say… I have always wanted to be a genuine person. I never wanted to sell somebody 3 and 4 products because I needed to get my sales up. But if I can identify and ask you some questions to figure out what you really want and to sell you something that you are actually looking for … that’s the person that I am.
NP: What fashion quote do you live by?
JR: “Confidence is your best cosmetic.” You can put on all the make-up in the world or all the clothes in the world if you don’t feel it from the inside…you know- its just not going to sell.
