This past week I got to go to New York City to do an event with the American Cancer Society, and I wanted to share some photos! Judy (ItsJudyTime) and I, along with some students at MUD Makeup School, got to do some makeovers on some amazing women who have battled cancer. In a few weeks we’re going to be working on a fundraiser campaign that the event is for, so look out for that ;)
For one shot, Judy & I were supposed to act like we had never met. We couldn’t keep a straight face :)
Since the event took place at MUD Studios, we needed to use MUD makeup! MUD was great and sponsored a kit for Judy and I.

Organizing the chaos
Talking to Judy before the event.. I look SOO concerned, but I’m not sure what we were talking about haha
Once the event started, it was slightly crazy! There were cameras everywhere, and I had to be mic-ed up the whole time. I’ve only worn a mic set up once, and it’s a whole process to get it on, especially when you’re wearing a dress (you have to feed a cord through your top, tape the mic basically in your boobs, and then find somewhere to hide a chunky black box so no one can see it.. see, a process!)
I’m slightly terrified to find out what I was saying while I had the mic on, because as you can see from the following photos..
Whatever we were talking about was continuously hilarious! :) I really enjoyed the time I got to spend with the girl I did makeup for. She was really sweet, had a great sense of humor, and her story was really inspiring.
Here’s Judy doing what she does best! :)
Afterwards I got to spend some time with Judy and her husband Benji.. we went to Cafeteria (a MUST for their mac n Cheese!) and just hung out. Here’s Judy’s vlog on that-
