This edition of HUR@Home Lifestyle was particularly informative and inspiring. Let me begin with Celebrity Make-Up Artist, Derrick Rutledge:
Long time celebrity MUA, Derrick Rutledge, has been enhancing faces since the 80’s and 90’s. He’s credited for bringing out the best looks for countless celebrities, including Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Patti LaBelle, Michele Obama, and for over the last decade, Oprah Winfrey.
We’re fortunate to have him give us much needed advice monthly, here on HUR@Home. This time, we focused on our current circumstances. Many of us are still social distancing and not planning to go to salons for beauty services any time soon. He addressed the fact that most of us are sleep deprived, and stressed about the Covid-19 pandemic. Along with the state of the world, as we continue to fight systemic racism and oppression. Watch and you’ll also get great ideas about how to wear your mask, without enduring the dreaded “mask lines” imprinted on your face.
Next, I had the chance to speak with a very young, accomplished NASCAR driver. At 17 years old, Rajah Caruth was the first, of only six members, to be selected for the 2020 NASCAR Drive For Diversity Development Program. He was selected based on his skills in iRacing. Did you know that NASCAR is one of the largest spectator sports in the US? The largest NASCAR arena holds 190, 000 spectators…and in television is falls just behind the NFL as the most watched televised sporting event. This sport is still a very new environment for African Americans. Watch this interview and let’s follow Rajah Caruth on this amazing journey.
