Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Kurv Magazine shoot with Adrienne Maloof, Make up by me, styling by Annie Funn

When I got the call to do make up for Adrienne Maloof, I was thrilled. Hired by an International Magazine, Kurv Magazine out of Australia (link below), we were told that the photo shoot would be filmed for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Season 1, since Adrienne was currently filming with the show. They wanted to capture her more "sexy" side and the styling team was given the theme of "Old Hollywood Glamor" as inspiration for the shoot. Location for the shoot was the one story sky villa at the Palms hotel in Vegas. http://www.palms.com/accommodations/las-vegas-1-story-sky-villa/  It was amazing. I got to work completely with natural light--which is my favorite. On the show, you can see I worked with Adrienne in my leopard covered studio chair, right by the windows. The best part about the whole day was that I used my own make up line Tina G Cosmetics on set. I used Micronized Airbrush Make up from MAC (silicone based) for her foundation, and she is wearing various blush shades, eyeshadow and liners, and lipsticks and gloss from my line. I will update with more specific information soon.

People always ask me what it was like to be there, to meet Adrienne Maloof, to work behind the scenes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It was amazing, fun, exciting, and one of the greatest days of my make up career. Adrienne Maloof is one of the nicest, sweetest, down to earth celebrities I have ever met. She is gorgeous in person and truly a pleasure to work with. I heard in the end, she was the most popular "housewife" and I can see why! I'm so glad the whole thing was captured on camera. My kids get a kick out of watching "Mom on TV".
