Jay Z, Jennifer Hudson, and Cyndi Lauper are but a few of the celebrities who have had their makeup treatments done by the staff at Blushbaby. This boutique studio was founded by celebrity makeup artists Khadija DeShong and Michelle Beckles, who in their forty-plus years have beautified recognizable faces in screen, magazines, and fashion, and for photo shoots. Michelle is a certified MAC Cosmetics Makeup Artist for over 15 years and served as resident artist for Clinique Cosmetics. Celebrity makeup artist Khadija attracts more stars than a bowling alley that uses Oscars as pins, and is a makeup artist for brands such as Laura Mercier, YSL Cosmetics, and Nars Cosmetics.
Their artistic eyes and steady hands have attracted celebrities and national press such as ABC News to their lavish studio, where clients are beautified in a regal setting accompanied by crystal chandeliers and posh makeup stations. Michelle and Khadija offer makeup applications in their studio and onsite, using their versatility to provide a proper look for a wedding, girls night out, or photo shoot. They also offer makeup lessons and eyelash-extension treatments.
Kid to Kid is an upscale children's and maternity resale store that buys clothing, toys, furnishings, and baby gear before selling it back at affordable prices. Before making the cut, all clothes and shoes must be deemed certifiably elite in stylishness, cleanliness, and newishness. Items are hand-selected by discerning staffers who put them through an intense screening process in which the gems make the rack and the duds are sent back. Back-to-school shoppers can find brands such as Gap and Gymboree, and moms-to-be can find fashions for themselves and their baking buns. Each piece of equipment and every toy is squeaky-clean and well-mannered, always poised for an invite to the most exclusive teddy bear picnics.
Seasoned boat captains and crustacean prospectors Sig Hansen, Johnathan Hillstrand, and Andy Hillstrand gather to share with audience members their tales of struggle and survival during crab season on the high seas, as partly documented by the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch. Fishing the Bering Sea in the middle of winter demands strong wills—which can come together in times of treacherous weather and 100-foot waves or come to blows about who performs better in the three-legged crabwalk race. Selected audience members will also have the chance to don the survival suits from the Time Bandit. Following the story-swapping and previously unreleased video footage, greenhorns and avid fans will have the opportunity to launch questions at the captains, wave giant foam claws, and learn how to communicate in claw-snap Morse code.
