Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!

I want to give a huge thankyou to all those involved. Everyone did an amazing job to make the experence special.

I would especially like to thank my PR company and Maureen Lynch who worked so hard for me on just a 24 hour notice!

I also like to thank my makeup artist, the incredible Rodney Jon. He is a true artist and an amazing person. He was able to completely transform me using only makeup and his extraodinary skills.

The makeup was complimentary by Lynn Tassinari Wegiel the Founder and CEO of LTW Custom Cosmetics. LTW specializes in giving their customers professional makeup advice enhancing their beauty. LTW features custom blended foundation, face powders, and lipsticks as well as ready to wear shades to fits your personality. Wearing LTW made me feel beautiful, the colors were vibrant, and I especially loved that it was light weight on my face almost like as if it was natural. I would definitely recommend LTW Custom Cosmetics and use this brand in the future.
