Inside the Scene at the Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards

Members of the Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists Guild gathered Saturday night in downtown Los Angeles to hand out their annual awards in film, TV, commercials and live theater.

The event was hosted by The Real co-host Loni Love who, surveying the room, said, “There’s more highlights here than at the Super Bowl and, with the amount of foundation here, we could build Trump’s wall.”

Love brought up the controversial decision made by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to hand out the Oscars for makeup and hairstyling, as well as the statuettes for cinematography, film editing and live action short, during commercial breaks. “We are vital to making movies. Can you imagine if we didn’t have hair and makeup for the movies? They had to change because they had all that backlash,” she said. “Sending actors to the Oscars on the red carpet without makeup and hair just wouldn’t work. They need you guys. … Without hair and makeup, society would be thrown into chaos.”

‘The Real’ co-host Loni Love has her eyes set on late-night

Loni Love wasn’t supposed to be a comedian. Her pursuit of an engineering degree from Prairie View A&M University was proof of that. But while in college, hard up for money for books, she participated in a local bar’s competition in which the person who could tell the best story would win $50. She took home a crisp Ulysses S. Grant, along with the comedy bug.

That first time on stage led to a consistent side hustle in stand-up as she completed her college degree. Upon graduating, she got a job in El Segundo “because Fred Sanford was from El Segundo,” she said.

“Yes, that’s how I picked my life choices,” she laughed.

She worked at Xerox as an engineer for eight years, unhappy along the way. After a fateful night at the Comedy Store, however, when the lineup consisted of just one woman, Love got back into the comedy habit.

Loni Love Talks Hosting The Real & Her Reaction To That Pregnancy Announcement

There is nothing stale about The Real. Topics vary from pop culture news to self-help. The guests include people from all walks of life. With four women of color serving as hosts, it’s the most diverse talk show on daytime television. It has been nominated for seven Daytime Emmys and an NAACP Image Award. Premiering in 2013, it is earning its spot as the talk show of our generation.
So it makes sense then, that when we had one of the show’s hosts in the R29 studio, we talked about a little bit of everything. Loni Love, a woman who holds the comedian and writer titles as well, worked as an electrical engineer before she got into show business. We got her to spill the tea about working on such a successful talk show, body positivity, and exactly where she was when she found out Beyoncé was carrying twins.
