I have gotten the honor to work with Jason Castro, you might remember him from American Idol. Three months ago I groomed, (dreadlock styling and mu) him for his upcoming album release. The images are somewhat online. But I am still waiting for the official copies. Instead, I found an image his super sweet and beautiful wife took of us while working. As shown below.
Over the weekend, I got to work with him again on the music video for his song, "Only A Mountain". And again, it was such a treat. As soon as the images and video is out, I will be a-postin'! Until then, enjoy yourselves.
Last night I was invited to another intoxicating Kitty Korvette Presents; Purr-Fume Soirée. This was my second time attending, so it was only natural to bring a friend or two.
The night was full of surprises, new found friends and I found more amazing concoctions to add to my collection. My friends couldn't leave empty handed, they also took home favorites and now my beau is in love with a body wash I brought home!
I heard a rumor that she will be hosting an unveiling of a new fragrance, FAUST at Secret Oktober, (Austin, TX) possibly set for the month of October along with the release of Gabrielle Faust's new novel. Kitty Korvette's full line of Purr-Fume will be for sale as well as copies of the new Gabrielle Faust novel.

Thanks to my partners in crime last night: The illustrious Caroline, (a.k.a. Lucy La Loca & Lucy Luscious). And uber talented hairstylist Bobbie Kleman (now booking at Joie De Vie in Austin, TX).
Be sure to check back for updates!
April 20th of 2012 in Austin, TX at the Moody Theatre - ACL Live was the date and The Johnny Cash Benefit Concert was a magical night to be a part of. I am still in awe of all the amazing talent in one place honoring The Man in Black, Mr. Johnny Cash.
Working with me that night were some awesome makeup artists and hair stylists. Helping me with makeup was Jenny Bailey, along with Bobbie Kleman and Angelia Sheets doin' up some hair. It's going to be exciting to finally watch the show, (without being backstatge). Don't get me wrong, the excitement of a living and breathing animal, (live event show makeup & hair work) is intoxicating. And it was an amazing night. It was also a treat that writer/director for the upcoming movie "Zombex", Jesse Dayton was there as well with his lovely wife, (my friend, actress in Zombex, a.k.a. Misstressclegg VonSinister & Emily Kaye). Jesse sang with the evenings host, Mr. Matthew McConaughey.
This weekend is the beginning of the four air dates on your local PBS station. For Austin, TX be sure to tune into KRLU at the dates and times below. You won't be sorry.
Another amazing addition to this year has been working, (as an additional mua/h for green screen interviews for shippers Jennifer and Ronnie) on A&E's Shipping Wars. Last night was the Season 2 Premiere. UShip had their party at The Alamo Drafthouse -The Ritz in Austin, TX. I got a delightfully surprising call from Jennifer to get her glamified for the party! It was so fun to be able to do her makeup outside of greenscreen! We definately had fun with a smokey look, and she was off with her beau, Brandon to paint the town.
Below are a couple candids from the night. Hopefully more will come soon!
The year has really brought some amazing opportunities and it's barely August! One of these times was with NIKE. They have been all over the U.S. filming cultural spots and a few months back, I was fortunate enough with them in Dallas, TX. We filmed the meeting of Felix Jones and Ace Hood at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. It was a real treat to be hired on for the Grooming of these very talented men. Enjoy the video link below to see the fun!

Besides that FireMakeup Artistry by Jessi Pagel is going to be amongst the high-end artist names all over the United States, I can now be called upon by my agent to work with traveling into Texas corporations, fashion campaign clients, celebrity, and the list goes on. I am elated, I am overjoyed..... I even shed some laughing tears.
