A Day In The Life Of Hollywood Makeup Artist Mila Thomas

If you’ve ever dreamed of being a Hollywood makeup artist, get a glimpse of the lifestyle with Mila J Thomas. Not only is she the chief makeup artist on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop Hollywood, she’s also worked with the Food Network, BET, and has beautified numerous celebrity clients. Up next for Mila? Hopefully, working with Michelle Obama, Oprah, or starting her own charity!

I wake up at 6am.

My first thought is “Thank you God for another day!” Second, breakfast at the beach!
I’m feeling funky! So I wear vintage high waist bell bottom jeans.
By 9am I head to work. In the car I’m blasting K Michelle. .
My morning is filled with emails, organizing my kit, white mocha lattes, and of course breakfast at the beach!
Lunch is at noon and I’m grubbing Kale Salad with roasted chicken, dates, and fresh Mozzarella while I check out IG for glam inspiration & new product reviews.
My afternoon is spent on set creating looks, slaying faces, checking monitors, and finding moments to laugh and act silly with my clients and crew as much as possible!
I finish the day with a last minute makeup run to Naimies, to pick up lashes and new lip shades for the next day.
Before I head out for the night I stop by the nail salon for a quick gel mani, pedi and 20 min massage.
Tonight’s event is chill and I’m looking forward to dancing, so I wear denim cut off shorts and red Matte lips.
I get home at 12am, decompress with a long hot shower,  apple, kale, lemon smoothie and a slice of key lime pie.
It’s lights out by 1… maybe.
