Friday, Jan. 9

9 a.m. I start at Jessica Pare’s house to get her ready for a luncheon. I wanted to keep her makeup soft and used a nice pinky rose on her lips. You could see her little belly, and she looked really cute.

10:15 a.m. Next I go by my agency office. I wasn’t around over the holidays, and a lot of people sent me products. I fill my car with 10 boxes!

12:30 p.m. I go by a couple artist-gifting suites, one at the SLS Hotel, then to one for Charlotte Tilbury at The London (seen below). I had so much fun playing with the amazing products and talking with Charlotte.

2:30 p.m. Work out at Equinox in Beverly Hills for an hour before racing home to shower and eat something.

5:15 p.m. I’m back at The London to get Joanne Froggatt from Downton Abbey ready for an event. She has these amazing eyelashes; I love using YSL's Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils with Eyeko mascara on her bottom lashes.

7:30 p.m. Home to walk my dog and then dinner — a beer and Thai food from one of my favorites, Si Laa on Robertson — with my boyfriend.


Saturday, Jan. 10

7 a.m. Wake up — I have four jobs today!

8:30 a.m. I get Sasha Pieterse (from Pretty Little Liars and Inherent Vice) ready for the Independent Spirit Awards Nominee Brunch. She has her two puppies with her, and we get started a little late because we’re playing with them.

9:45 a.m. I then race over to The London again to get Jo [Froggatt] ready for the BAFTA Tea Party. We did peachy, golden makeup to match accents in her jumper.

11:40 a.m. I’m so excited that I have time to go to Beverly Hills Juice Club. I get an Apple Lemon Triple Ginger Banana Manna Almond Smoothie — it’s my lunch.

1 p.m. I meet Chloe Grace Moretz at Andy Lecompte Salo, where she’s getting her hair done. We do a smoky-gray eye to go with the red-and-black suit she’s wearing to an event honoring Julianne Moore, who she was in Carrie with.

2:15 p.m. I drive up the I-5 to do Maggie Q’s makeup for a campaign she’s shooting.

6:15 p.m. I’m deliriously hungry and craving chicken from Fred Segal, only to find out it closed at 6 p.m. I get a salad and scarf it in my car. At home I walk my dog, shower and spend hours going through all my boxes of products, adding things from Kevyn Aucoin, Elizabeth Arden and Dior to my kit.


Sunday, Jan. 11

9 a.m. I wake up, walk the dog and have some yogurt before stopping for an almond latte at Dialog Cafe on my way to The London — again!

10:30 a.m. For the Golden Globes, Jo [Froggatt] is wearing a navy strapless Marchesa gown with embroidery and crystals, so we do a soft pink lip, pink cheeks and plummy-gold eyes with a black-wing liner and lots of lashes. Ashley Streicher does her hair up, because today is gloomy, and Brad Goreski styles her.

2 p.m. I arrive at actress and writer Katie Nehra’s house to do her makeup for an InStyle party, then I run to the Beverly Hills Hotel to do Ivana Milicevic, from the show Banshee, for the HBO party.

6 p.m. I tune in to the Golden Globes before heading to the Forum to see Louis C.K. do his stand-up show.
