Here are a couple older behind-the-scenes shots of me working with Corrina Crade (one of my friends and favorite people to collaborate with) and Damon Williams for promo pieces for their show that debuted in November called Cultural Xchange, which is on WCIU in Chicago and a few other stations, as well as online!  You should totes mcgotes check it out!

Try as I may, I can’t get the right collage thing going to get our full-length and close up in one post, so it’s gonna have to be two! Here are our outfits from Saturday night! I wish I had gotten a better picture of it! I might have to schedule a photoshoot for us in these clothes, because I loved how it turned out so much! My clutch is vintage from @allisoncheese! (at Billboard Factory Chicago )

I think these are super rad!  I usually am not overly fond of floral prints, but I really like what the photographer did in post with the top one!  The photographer was Eric Olson, Model Shannon, and I did her hair and makeup!

Here’s another installment of the portfolio pieces that I am posting from my shoot with Eric Olson and Shannon.  Portraits with sculptures!  I wasn’t super excited about these when I left the shoot, but the photographer’s vision definitely changed my mind - I love these!  

What do you think?

I did boudoir makeup for @MalyndaHale a bit ago…  Isn’t she gorgeous? You should hear her sing!  Look her up on Spotify!  Photo by Latoya Thorn Photography.  She was in the Covergirl “My Black is Beautiful” campaign, too! xoxo, Mandie

I got to do hair and makeup on Brittany Clapper for a second time, this one for an Autumn-inspired shoot!  How gorgeous is his redhead? Photographed by Michael Coakes. xoxo, Mandie

Here’s a pic from on set of the @altruettecharms shoot tonight! I started as the hair stylist/makeup artist and ended up doing some hand modeling. Surprise! Haha! If you’ve never heard of them, check them out! They make beautiful jewelry! Each charm represents a different charity. You can find them at some fine boutiques, @Nordstrom, and altruette.com #charity #jewelry #photoshoot #model #makeupartist #mua #bts #behindthescenes #charms #wishlist #gold #silver #hairstylist #handmodel #chicago

Well, my #badgers were obviously disappointing tonight, but I am going to look at the positives! This morning was a #Chicago #beachbody super Saturday, which are four of my favorite days of the year! It’s always wonderful to see my Beachbody family, even if it’s extra odd to be the same height as @katiechoudhary (she’s wearing heels, I’m wearing flats)! I confirmed that the workout we did at Summit with @tonyhorton was in fact a preview of #P90X3, which comes out in December! It’s going to be awesome! And, to top it all off, we FINALLY made pizza with a cauliflower crust! It was so delicious! #fitness #health #helpingothers #fitfam #coach #primal #pizza #eatclean #traindirty #weightloss #exercise

This serves as proof of my second and third shoots from yesterday! My hair & makeup is leftover from my modeling shoot, and I’m with the gorgeous @malyndahale whose makeup I had just completed! She’s an amazing singer, and is currently in Jet, Essence, and other publications for Cover Girl’s “My Black is Beautiful” campaign. ❤️ #model  #makeup #makeupartist #photoshoot #chicago #singer #covergirl @covergirl #curls #gorgeous #shoot
