Happy Saturday!
I'm so excited to finally share these photos! I love this copper eye, I used a MAC eyeshadow that i've had forever, but never had the chance to use. I also used my favorite nude lipstick 'Latte' by Smashbox. Heart eyes for days.

A few months ago I had the opportunity to work on a beautiful Frida Kahlo inspired photoshoot. It is now published in ELEGANT MAGAZINE's May 2015 issue. (Linked below)

Atarah Atkinson brought me on as her makeup artist, and we spent a full day shooting in a gorgeous house in Montecito, Ca. (Rumored to be next door to Oprah and Christopher Lloyd) 
I was really excited to do this makeup, and to give my model Frida's famous unibrow. 
I've included most of the photos, (see all of them in Elegant Magazine's May issue)  and allot of behind the scenes photos. 

Behind the scene photos were taken by everyone involved in the photoshoot. 

I had a great time creating with this team.

Kicking off my first blog post on Friday the 13th! 

I will be updating my blog frequently with full sets of images from  photo shoots, as well as behind the scene photos, videos and other content that won't be on my portfolio. You'll get a feel for more of my personal work and get a chance to see my process. I want to share some of the cool projects that i'm working on. Stay Tuned!

My first post is from my recent shoot with J Beverly Hills. JBH is a professional salon product company that offers many types of hair products, some of which, we used in this photo shoot. I was challenged to create two makeups tat showed the difference and unity of yin&yang.. I played with textures and colors . From minimal to dramatic, and matte to glossy, here are the looks I created for J Beverly Hills.
ps. There's a rad behind the scenes video at the bottom!

Adding that high gloss sheen right before the shutter clicks!
