IMATS: A Lesson from Valente Frazier

I attended the Keynote Lesson from Celebrity Makeup Artist Valente Frazier. He is Iman and Tyra Banks’ makeup artist… and is recognized for his professionalism, drama-free attitude, grace and humility.

Before he came on stage, there was a wonderful vignette with Iman and others talking about why they choose to work with Valente Frazier on a regular basis. And what came through again and again was his professionalism, his grace, and his drama-free attitude.

I met him after the show, and commended him on his consummate professionalism. He held my hand the entire time, and told me that we are nothing without humility, and  none of us is EVER so big that we can be rude to another person. I took that home with me.

But onto the lesson! I have no words…so I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. Valente shared his secrets to getting the perfect flawless Red Carpet look:
