Today I’m really excited to share an amazing experiences with you. Last Friday I attended The Imagen Awards because a film I helped produce was nominated! The Imagen Awards aims to recognize, encourage and reward positive portrayals of Latinos in all forms of media. The Foundation also works to create, promote, and enhance opportunities for all Latinos in front of and behind the camera and throughout the entertainment industry.
It took me ALL day to get ready! But I enjoyed every minute, it made me feel like a princess :) I had some amazing people help me pull my look together and I owe them sooo much because God knows I wake up looking like a train wreck every morning! Lol. My hair was done by the amazing Lupe at Elegance Salon, if you’re in the inland empire and are looking for a stylist that does great work, you should definitely give her a call!
My makeup was done by Laura of Miss Prissy and I wish I had gotten more photo of it because the few I did get, truly don’t do it justice. She was able to make me look flawless and perfectly contoured. She specializes in a variety of makeup including special effects for film & TV. She’s located in the SGV but does travel!
Now for fun, star sightings!!! In no particular order, here is a list of some of the celebs I saw: Constance Marie (George Lopez Show), Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Recreation), Bella Thorne (Shake it Up), Jon Huertas (Castle)
I felt really blessed just attending The Imagen Awards. It was a great experience. Being in a room full of people who have accomplished their dreams, at least in part, of creating a successful career in the entertainment industry was inspiring. I think life is too short not to pursue the things you truly want to do. Whatever your dreams may be…acting, singing, opening a flower shop….whatever your heart is calling you to do, do it.
P.S. Believe it or not I did wear a dress from Windsor to the awards! Yep…a girl on ANY budget can look red carpet ready!
