FREE NYC Event! Meet NARS Makeup Arist, Uzo

Uzo Nars W Hotel

It’s been over a decade since I left my first corporate job, working in International at NARS Cosmetics. It was an impressionable era for me and one where I had the pleasure of watching and getting to know one of the most impeccable makeup artists of our time, Uzo. Ten years later (although let me be clear she was just as major back then) Uzo will be at the W Hotel on September 14th from 3-5pm as part of the W Hotel What She Said event series.

Uzo will provide the What She Said audience with an insider’s look in the beauty industry and her advice on success that every woman can relate to.
WHEN:  Wednesday, September 14th 3:00PM – 5:00PM
WHERE: The Great Room at W New York – Union Square, 201 Park Avenue South at 17th Street
This event is free and open to the public. RSVP at

Uzo will also be hosting a makeup master class and beauty workshop held in the hotel’s studio space. Uzo will share her tips and tricks on achieving a flawless face in a very product-driven demonstration. This master class will take place in an intimate setting at the hotel

WHEN: Thursday, September 15th 6:00PM – 8:00PM
WHERE: Studio at the W New York – Union Square, 201 Park Avenue South at 17th Street
