So I have refrained from sharing this information until now — it’s been difficult! On Tuesday (October 23) I flew up to the fabulous NYC to be made over by Glamour magazine(!!!!!!!!)! I wasn’t the only YouTuber there, but I don’t think any of the other girls have announced their makeovers and I don’t want to give it away for them before they have the chance to do so. There were a total of four of us, though. :)
The amazing hair stylist Ashley Javier, with help from assistant Ryan (not Chad!), did my hair.. and it looks incredible. I had super, super thick, long hair, and he completely transformed it. I LOVE my new hair! Not to mention we had the best time in the studio. His adorable little Yorkie, Tennessee, accompanied him. I love puppies. :)
The brilliant Jeanine Lobell, founder of Stila cosmetics, was the makeup artist for the photoshoot along with her assistant, Chad, who showed off all his MAC and made me swoon! She explained everything she did when applying my makeup and I was able to ask her some questions, which I really enjoyed and cannot wait to relay to ya’ll!
The photographer was Mark Leibowitz, who was very sweet and talented, obviously.
Glamour’s fashion editor Suze Yalof Schwartz directed the shoot along with assistant Madeline Andrews, who has patiently answered my questions and relayed information since day one. I appreciate her graciousness to the utmost.
Make sure to head on over to Suze’s blog on Glamour.com to see the post she made from the studio on the (amazing) day of the makeover!
Basically, I had an awesome time; the people in the studio were simply amazing at what they did and I loved just being in their presence — not to even mention having the opportunity to ask questions and learn from them. I can’t wait to show ya’ll how much fun I had, and share with you things I learned.
Naturally, I filmed the entire process but unfortunately I can’t post the video(s) until the issue runs in April or May. I’m not sure if I am allowed to post pictures from it yet either. I will definitely keep you posted if I hear anything new or concrete!
