Ok so, I really do like the Marvel movies. I am not a comic book junkie, I just really enjoy the movies themselves. The Black Panther movie coming out on February 16th will hold a very special place in my heart though! When I first got started in the "entertainment" world, it was working in venues in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan. I worked for major venues similar to PNC, Spectrum, and more. One of my first jobs was as a "PA" or Production Assistant. It really was just running errands all day for the people on the tour. I was a PA for the Cher tour (yes, CHER!), and was assigned to her makeup artist/the person who took care of all of her wigs. (Inside scoop, Cher usually did her own makeup!) Anyway, his name was Tym, and little did I know at the time, he would become one of my close friends!
The first day we were together I basically drove him to different malls and followed him as he bought makeup and products for the tour.
The second day I got a phone call before I was even at the venue, telling me that I had been requested to work with him again, and that I was to pick him up at the hotel....
He jumped in my Jeep asked if we could take the top down, turned up some Dixie Chicks "Ready To Run," and said "Today I'm taking you for a makeover!"
Trust me when someone as talented as he is offers this up you don't feel offended or say no! He has taught me a lot about makeup over the years, and has also scolded me about things I have done with makeup over the years too, but I have been blessed to have his friendship.
He will visit my mom in Michigan when he happens to be there, and my family has watched his career soar.
He has done makeup for some of the biggest names in the music industry, television and movies too. Janet Jackson? Yep
Department Head for Dream Girls? Yep!
Pirates Of The Caribbean? YES!
Nutty Professor? Yep
Secret Life Of Bees? YES!
American Idol? Yep!
One Tree Hill? Yep!
Hairspray Live? YES!
House Of Lies? YEP! and so many more too....
So I am sure by now you will realize why I am so excited for this movie.... Yes, he was part of an incredibly talented crew for this major motion picture! Check out the latest trailer for the movie!
