LeftEye MusicFest

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 🙂
