makeup artist defends taraji p henson's look


  • Today I got roasted by social media @theshaderoom @dcyoungflyand fans let me have it and even told @tarajiphenson to fire me… well same hair and makeup same day in these two pictures but let me explain to the novice #makeupartist out here in the social media world. Lighting makes a major difference in how your makeup appears. Taraji has a yellow undertone and in her trailer the lights are fluorescent. Where as in the #makeuptrailer the lights are natural light bulbs. Anyone who is a pro knows that fluorescent lighting will turn your skintone green and make you appear ashy. I’ve done Tarajis makeup for many many years in fact many celebrities and I was reluctant to address this but I decided it was necessary to teach you novice makeup artist and people who don’t know lighting whatsoever that it does affect how your makeup looks. Furthermore makeup for TV, red carpet, editorial, film etc are all different mediums and makeup reads differently depending on the format used, cameras, lighting, background, hair color, clothing etc. I’ve been doing this over 20 years so imma say this don’t come for my job or my talent cause the work speaks for itself. I’m so damn tired of people throwing stones and don’t even understand the technicalities involved when it comes to #makeup #hair or #fashion and be so quick to judge people’s work without knowing all the technicalities involved. We all have bad days but just so you trolls know this wasn’t one of them. Judge my work when you stand next to her in public and if she look ashy or green then come get at ya girl… f#&? Outta here… but @dcyoungfly you were funny we did laugh and thanks for treating the queen with #respect#tarajiphenson #KnowYourSh$$1st #clownasspeople#socialmediaamesssometimes#doyouhaveacareerNadontthinkso#20plusyearsinthegame #googlemebitches#blessed??
