LIFE IS SO SHORT, THIS POSTING IS DEFINATELY LATE, HOWEVER I JUST BECAME AWARE THAT WE LOST ANOTHER GREAT TALENT WITHIN THE YEAR OF 2010.Celebrity makeup artist, Roxanna Floyd, died unexpectedly in her sleep at her home in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn, New York on Thursday afternoon, January 28, 2010. Roxie, as her friends called her, was born in Brooklyn, New York, on September 23, 1960 and lived in the borough her entire life. Roxanna was a devout Christian, a faithful wife and daughter and an only child.Roxanna Floyd’s artistry has influenced every era since the 1980s and she has worked on every continent, with the exception of Antarctica. She leaves behind a legacy of work covering every medium from music videos to major motion pictures, album covers to book jackets, the Internet and more than 200 magazine covers and fashion and beauty stories. Many know Roxanna for her work with world-renowned celebrities such as Angela Bassett, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah, but her first celebrity client was Yoko Ono and her first of more than 60 ESSENCE covers was with Halle Berry. Roxanna’s film and music portfolio also includes, Lauryn Hill, Monica, Star Jones, Pam Grier, Alfre Woodard, Deborah Cox, Lynn Whitfield, and Diana Ross for Oprah Winfrey’s Legends Ball. With a career that coincided with the emergence of the supermodel phenomenon, Roxanna worked with the top models of the time at the Elite agency, and with the advent of the music video, she contributed her expertise to some 40 videos.Roxanna’s makeup expertise reached far beyond the set call, she was a makeup historian. She studied looks, products and tools from ancient Africa to modern-day, multicultural America. She was also an avid collector of makeup memorabilia and counted samples of Harlem beauty pioneer Rose Morgan’s face powder, and Flori Roberts’ Beauty Legacy Kit among her prized possessions.As a cosmetics expert, Roxanna lent her exhaustive knowledge to Avon, Mary Kay and Proctor & Gamble. Recently she worked as the Creative Consultant for the CoverGirl Queen Collection, and for the past year and a half she served as Creative Beauty Director for Fashion Fair Cosmetics. During her career, Roxanna served as a columnist, guest editor, and contributing writer to several magazines and new media outlets. When it came to providing makeup know-how for readers, no other African-American artist was quoted more than Roxanna. Her beauty tips have been relayed in a diverse collection of magazines from In Style to ESSENCE, Redbook to Latina. In the 1990s Roxanna received a six-page cover story feature in Makeup Artist magazine, an honor usually reserved for the big names in special effects makeup. She has been featured on the CBS Morning Show, VH1, Entertainment Tonight, MTV and Oprah. Roxanna’s closing makeup statement graces the March 2010 issue of EBONY magazine on which she worked with Gabourey Sidibe, the star of Lee Daniels’ movie Precious.

Time and time again, in the entertainment industry, most view the job as fun, which it is, however does this now mean that our artistry is not valued as a real job? When is asking for the hook up i.e. something for Free ever okay especially from someone you don't know. Okay, I know your sitting there asking yourself, what is she talking about. Well here it is, as a make up artist, I have come across alot of different types of people, ones who value the artistry of make up and understand the importance of a make up artist and then there are those, who look at our job as just something fun to do, not really a real career,as if we Play make up etc. well I for one am offended by that, or by anyone who thinks that artistry of any kind, whether it be music, singing, poetry, painting, is not a career. Creative minds put just as much effort,time, and dedication in their career, as a doctor,psychologist,astronaut,lawyer,or therapist. Artistry is not a hobby, we are just as passionate about our craft as anyone would be in any profession. Now to completely understand where I am coming from, here goes, time and time again, I receive calls from total strangers, asking for free services, such as if you do the make up for free, you will receive the pictures, well for one if I am apart of the production, I am owed the pictures. Also,alot of calls, asking for free make up services for charity, understand, I do not have a problem helping those in need nor those that I know, but complete strangers and charities I've never heard of in my life, why? Then you have the people that know you through a good friend, which makes them think that their some how entitled to some kind of discount, why would you think you are entitled to a freeby a hook up or any discount of any kind because your friends with someone I know, I don't know you personally so why would I lower my price or give you any kind of discount. I apologize for venting,but its time someone speaks up for all of the artist out there! THE BOTTOM LINE IS, RESPECT OUR CRAFT, THE SAME WAY WE RESPECT YOURS, WITH CASH, CREDIT CARD OR POSTAL MONEY ORDER. -THAT IS ALL.
