Project Runway Season 9 Premiere’s Tonight! Back with team L’Oreal!

Once again, I was fortunate and thrilled to be on the L’Oreal team for Project Runway. Watch the premiere of the Season 9 tonight on Lifetime at 9pm/8C. Don’t have cable? Watch online tomorrow morning on MyLifetime.com.

 

I’m SO ready for this. I even randomly bumped into Project Runway All-Stars winner Daniel Vosovic with his boyfriend yesterday.

 

Pictured below are a few of the makeup artists, from this season’s L’Oreal Paris Makeup Room, lead by Scott Patric. Be on the lookout for some fun new products and lots of color. Like all the best reality shows (Season 8 just received another two Emmy nominations), there are lots of surprise twists. I’m seriously sworn to secrecy, so that’s all for now. Stay tuned!

Natasha Bedingfield Walks the Pink Carpet for The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show – Makeup by Andrew Sotomayor

Natasha Bedingfield

The holiday season officially begins not when “hark, the herald angel sings”, but when the Victoria’s Secret Angels don wings. While Heidi Klum and Seal have sung on stage in the past, this year’s entertainment was provided by Katie Perry.

 

Fortunately, the musical talent was not restricted to the stage. The front row was just as glamorous  with Natasha Bedingfield sitting front row and accompanied by her sister, Nikola Bedingfield. I had the honor of doing Natasha’s makeup for the occasion. It was my first time working with the chanteuse and she made it special by bringing her great spirit and even jokingly singing a bit.

 

For her makeup look, the songstress had me remix 40’s glam by adding 60’s chic lashes that evoked Twiggy herself and pop art orange lips, both which flatter the classic winged eyeliner. This was the red carpet…pink carpet…version of one of several creative art and tribal driven looks featured in the music video for her new single “Strip Me”. The song is featured on the soundtrack for the feature film “Morning Glory” starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton which opened the same evening. Go see it!

 

Natasha wore several products by Le Metier De Beaute including the Precision Liquid Eyeliner and the Anamorphic Lash Mascara. Also featured in this look is Morange lipstick by MAC and Luminous Body Glow in Medium by Red Carpet Kolour. Click below to see more of Natasha’s makeup looks, including some awesome tribal inspired beauty, in her new music video “Strip Me”. Her new album debuts December 7th, and can be pre-ordered on Amazon today.

Heidi, Nina, Michael, and Dinosaur Jr all agree…"Keep the Glove"

The blog is back! Fashion Week was flanked by some really big projects so I’ve got a lot of cool stuff to catch you up on. I’m coming off three weeks without a day off and mostly 4 hours of sleep, but I watched an episode of The Rachel Zoe Project online, and in the closing credits she references working 40 days in a row. I’d die.

 

For Project Runway S08, E03, the challenge was to use unconventional techniques and materials from the party store for a red carpet look. Unfortunately for Casanova, he ended up in the bottom three, but while the judges said his gown failed to come together elegantly, they admitted he has lots ideas, and he accepted their criticism with humility, an eagerness to learn, and a bit of class.

 

One of his fabulous ideas that didn’t get featured on the show, can be seen in the extended judging on MyLifetime.com. All three judges agreed it was uber-cool, and a Project Runway first, when Casanova asked the L’Oreal makeup team to use a paper doily as a stencil and give model, Sarae, a set of painted on lace gloves. After some experimentation with an airbrush, we found the most effective technique was to use a sponge tipped applicator and the black cream eyeliner for opaque shapes, and black shadow with a brush for a veil of color. Casanova wasn’t afraid to get his own hands dirty and jumped right in to give this bit of body painting his personal touch.

 

 

 

Watch this clip for a close up, and unanimously favorable reactions from the judges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So who’s Dinosaur Jr? Well, be glad this band, originally from Amherst, MA, wrote “Keep the Glove”. If they hadn’t I might have gone with the title “Whether or nor you liked it then you should have put a glove on it”. I’d die.

Project Runway Season 8 Premieres Tonight and I’m officially In!

Season 7 Episode 5 – Makeup for Joanna Coles by Andrew Sotomayor, Nina Garcia’s makeup by Danilo Omo)

 

My longtime friend Nick and I used to meet at my apartment every Thursday to watch the very first season of Project Runway back in college. I will never forget how personally we took every comment, good or bad, about our favorite designers, among them Austin Scarlett. My buddy, celebrity makeup artist Daniel Martin, introduced me to Austin (they go way back) almost two years ago for a photo shoot where I got to create makeup to go with some of his most delectable creations. Also premiering tonight is a new show featuring Austin teamed up with season 2 veteran Santino Rice for On the Road with Austin & Santino.

I’m seriously sworn to secrecy, so for now all I can say is that Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia are even more beautiful in real life, (with a little help from their personal makeup artists Linda Hay and Danilo Omo), Michael Kors’s wit is sharp as a tack, and all three are very pleasant. Besides that, most of my time was spent with crew and the models. This diverse group of girls, were nothing short of animated backstage. I’m looking forward to the fabulous premiere party tonight, for which they’re playing hostesses.

 

All in all, I can best compare this experience to playing pinball at Peter Piper Pizza out west while on summer vacation as a child. For me,  I can say that each day on set was colorful, fast-paced, exciting, challenging, sometimes noisy, filled with new friends, unexpected turns of events, surprising outcomes, and ultimately something I’d been anticipating for what seems like a very long time.

 

 

Throughout Season 8, look for lots of color courtesy of the makeup team who are Scott Patric (he’s the one with the goatee and Key Makeup Artist), Hope Choman, Masako Kizuki, Albee Franson, Kristen Arnett, Jorge Luis Buenavad, Deborah Altizio, Gabrielle Padilla and myself.
