On Saturday, September 28 I had the opportunity to work as a makeup artist at the LeftEye MusicFest. This year’s event marked the 2nd annual benefit concert in honor of the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of the popular 90’s pop/r&b trio, TLC. The concert aimed to raise money for the Lisa Lopes Foundation and was a “family oriented event that encourages upcoming female artists, positive community involvement and healthy lifestyles.” For more information check out this link —> LeftEye MusicFest
So what did I think of the event?! Well I definately thought it was a great opportunity for backstage experience at a music event! We had a lot of performers to paint and at times, they did not leave us with a lot of time to get them all done! The energy was face paced as the performers came in and out for makeup and touch ups. Fortunately, there were a number of makeup artist there and we all worked cohesively to get each performer ready for her (or his!) performance. I’m glad I remembered to always pack food and water because I, without a doubt, worked up an appetite! Next time, I will make time to actually eat BEFORE I am scheduled to arrive at my next event…LOL.
What was the best part of being a part of this event?? To be honest, it was meeting and networking with other makeup artists!! I met some really cool people and look forward to working at other events with them in the near future 🙂
