VDAY LOVE!!!  This is one of my fave lookbooks for 2020ave!  They just keep raising the bar everytime!  I loved the Chinatown concept.  We got to use the poppin’ reds and pinks on the lips for a flirty but cool V-day look.  Thanks to The Social Trust for always making the shoots DOPE!

Love the Winter Freeze lookbook for 2020ave!!!

Cheebo was definitely killin’ the looks and nailed the California beach winter look.

Today was the premiere for Fox Searchlight’s THE SESSIONS and I got to work with the beautiful mommy to be Moon Bloodgood!  We decided to go for a a soft smokey eye and sculpted flawless glowy face.  Since Moon is about 7 months into her pregnancy we wanted to bring out her features and focus on really contouring the face and even skin tone.  The beautiful rich grey tone flowy dress she wore matched this effortless sultry yet classy makeup and hair look.   Another beautiful red carpet night especially with the premiere being held at LACMA!! 

THE SESSIONS starring Helen Hunt, Moon Bloodgood, John Hawkes, and William H. Macy will definitely be getting a lot of buzz and in my mind a definite Oscar contender.  I was surprised at the range of emotions I felt throughout this movie!  A rare gem of a movie to tell such an amazing true story while balancing the humor and the sincerity of it all.  Please go and watch!  Click on THE SESSIONS to watch the trailer.

Nylon TV shoot day again!

First I got to work with Alex Frnka from MTV’s Inbetweeners.  Alex was sweet and decided to go for a retro winged eyeliner eye with a nice pink pop of color on the lips.  She wore a great retro dress for her video on her favorite holiday sugar cookies recipe!  We all loved her sweet retro look and the delicious cookies!  Thanks for hooking us up!

For the next video,  Nylon TV wanted to do a makeup/hair tutorial with Greer Grammer on MTV’s Awkward.  The tutorial was based on Greer’s favorite type of look all around, which was classic 40’s.  We decided to do a homage to the 40’s look but added a  modern twist!  Greer is an absolute doll and very down to earth with a boho edge.  All the looks turned out beautiful and I cannot wait to share these videos with you all soon!

Keep a look out for the video link to this tutorial!!!

Let me just say this, after working in this industry for so long I don’t really get fazed much anymore.  I have worked in a lot of hotels during awards show season, but why have I never heard about Mr. C Hotel in Beverly Hills??????  As soon as you drive up, you are wondering how this place has been hiding.  Then when you walk into this super slick 40’s inspired lobby you get thrown off completely!  The glass billiard table ended it for me!!!  This hotel feels like a Mad Men set that you can walk into. 

I got to the room to set up my makeup area for the Nylon TV party and was in shock by the beautiful designs of the room!  Pictures cannot even capture the atmosphere of this place.  Go and check out this hotel for drinks with friends or a weekend getaway. 

I got Nylon TV producer Heather Catania and Host Jennifer Humphrey (a fashionista blogger) all glammed up and ready to go for the live streaming interviews.  We all had another memorable night in Hollywood!

Today was another one of those days that I feel so blessed to do what I LOVE to do. Working at TOMS always feels like a vacay.  I mean a coffee barista that makes your coffee with a smile and puts a heart in your cup or playing a little ping-pong to bounce off creative ideas?  Is this a real workplace?  I love it here~ 

We shot some of the new sunglasses coming out this fall.  I had a great time as usual and got to work with one of the creative directors Patrick who has a great aesthetic vision for the inspirations he comes up with.  What a seriously cool group.  But what else would you expect at TOMS right?

Today we are shooting the lookbook for 2020 AVE.  I really really really love their clothes, shoes, accessories, everything!!!!  If you want to get current trend looks and accessories for really great prices shop here NOW!  I instantly fell in love with their silver and gold knuckle rings,  studded boots, and round sunglasses with a gradient tint!

Our model Ashley Moore from Nous Models killed all the looks and will sell out everything she wore for the lookbook no doubt!

Again The Social Trust did it again with producing the shoot and capturing all the fashion-inspiring looks!!!

Today we were at the Band of Outsiders atelier in Los Angeles to shoot with designer Scott Sternberg for a spread in Marie Claire Korea.  I was so impressed by the laid back atmosphere of this studio as it was a week away from NY Fashion Week.  Scott and his team were all calm and cool as they worked away in this cool quirky warehouse studio that had great 80’s memorabilia that took me back to my childhood.  Most of which were used as props in his previous fashion shows. 

I love the vintage-inspired looks in his collection that are casual yet comfortable with an unassuming feel.  I cannot wait to see this new collection that debuts at NY Fashion Week!

Thanks to The Social Trust for taking great shots as always!!
