Model Features

I had the pleasure of working with Magdalene, a beautiful model from The Campbell Agency here in Dallas, Texas.  The looks created for this session featured ultra modern dewy, almost wet, textures that exude youth and freshness.  I achieved the effect on the skin by utilizing Josie Maran Argan Oil as a moisturizer mixed with Lé Métier de Beauté Classic Flawless Finish Foundation.  The glossy and hyper wet texture was achieved by painting on Privé Flash Brilliance cocktailed with Grooming Pomade with a tint brush.

Enjoy!

HOW TO: Glamorous Red Carpet Look

Uncategorized

One of my all time favorite looks is a side parted cascade wave worthy of Rita Hayworth or Veronica Lake.  The classics never disappoint!

This look was designed for a dear friend and model here in Dallas.  She has always brought beauty and joy when I work with her on set, so naturally I HAD to help her get ready for her special prom night.  Her gown was custom-made by Lucy Dang and needed a couture hair and makeup look to match.

Trying to man the camera and complete hair and makeup is quite challenging but here is a step-by-step of how the look was achieved.

Try it out for you next event, date, or photoshoot!  Comment below if you have any questions.

Enjoy!

I first prepared Allison’s hair with Paul Mitchell Styling Foam for heat protection and a soft memory hold.  Apply on dry hair and comb through to saturate then establish a deep side part for a vintage feel.  A 1″ barrel curling iron was used for this pin curl set.  Curl all of your hair going in the same direction.  In this case, all of the hair was curled towards the face by wrapping the hair around the iron towards the face.  The important part of this look is a pronounced wave and in order to achieve it, you should “set” or allow the hair to cool in the desired shape.  After releasing the hair from the curling iron, roll it back onto itself like shown above and clip it at the base or root with a hair clip.  You can find them at any general beauty supply.

Continue to curl all of your hair until all of it is in pin curls as shown above.  Mist it lightly with a light hold hairspray and move on to makeup.  For this look I used L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray because it has a brushable hold.

After appropriately moisturizing the skin and lips, I primed it to ensure the makeup lasted all night.  Allison has great skin and just needed a light primer to ensure she photographed well and that she stayed matte.  I used Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer.  The foundation of choice was a bit of Bobbi Brown Foundation applied lightly with a wet foundation brush. It was then set with Bobbi Brown Translucent Powder.

Her cheeks were sculpted with an apricot rose blusher from the Kaleidoscope Collection by Lé Métier de Beauté.

2014-05-09 19.37.45

A sheer opalescent wash of color was added all over the lid from the Ready-to-Glow Eyeshadow Quad by Dior. The center darkest color was used to enhance the crease.

2014-05-09 19.40.13

Starting from the center, I drew a thin line following her eye shape with the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Felt Tip Liner.  Make sure to not over extend your line past the end of your lash line for a balanced effect.

2014-05-09 19.41.10

 

While wet, I gently smudged the liner with a flat liner brush to soften the line.

2014-05-09 19.41.42

 

Prepare the lashes by curling them to accent the eyes.  I used a Tweezeman Lash Curler in this step.

2014-05-09 19.42.47

I like to build lashes as much as possible to avoid using fake lashes.  Makeup Forever Lash Fibers is perfect for this.  I added the white base fibers in several coats.

2014-05-09 19.44.31

While still damp, I added mascara to build volume.  The mascara of choice was Makeup Forever’s Aqua Smokey Lash since it is waterproof.

2014-05-09 19.45.11

Next, define the brows lightly to add a sculpted effect.  I used MAC Brow Pencil in Brun.

2014-05-09 19.46.45

Define the lips from the center out with a sturdy lip brush. This is a Mehron Flat Brush which is for shadow but I like it better for lips.  I used Dior Addict Lipstick in “Rock’n Roll”.

2014-05-09 19.47.18

Gently place a tissue over your lipstick and press a bit of translucent powder with a fluffy brush to set your lipstick.

2014-05-09 19.47.44

Release your curls and gently brush from roots to ends.  I recommend brushing the hair for about 5 to 6 minutes to collapse the curls just enough and create a wave.

2014-05-09 19.48.18

The waves around the face will form and you can set them in place by holding them with the same pins used in your pin curl set.  Make sure to clip every indentation or curve that the wave makes as shown above.  Lightly mist with a finishing spray for a firm hold.  I used Kenra Finishing Spray.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: “A Girl in Gold” Influential Magazine, January 2014

Uncategorized

One of fashion’s biggest trends is the color gold. Opulent, classy, and expensive.

This collection features some of the most beautiful and classic pieces styled by Jeanette Chiviis. 

I created hair and make up looks that evoked the bygone eras of Roosevelt and glamour associated with Veronica Lake and Rita Hayworth. Washes of gold on the eyelids, bold highlights on the cheekbones and gold flaked lip colors added to the beautiful drama.

I hope you enjoy!

“Fleurs” HUF Magazine, May 2014

Uncategorized

I am so excited to finally be able to share this collection with you all!

I think that beauty has many facets and is everywhere around us. This editorial focused on my personal adoration of flowers and woman’s ultimate beauty.

I associate a flower’s fragile and strong beauty to a woman. Fresh. Colorful. Fragile. Fleeting.

The vivid color palette was enhanced with bold washes of hand applied pastel chalk to the hair. Each slide featured complimentary tones to enhance the various flower headpieces constructed on set.

Beauty cream foundation from Bobbi Brown was mixed with Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil to create an ethereal glow. I found my supply at http://www.sephora.com

image

Custom lip colors to close enhance each flower were mixed on set using OCC Makeup Lip Tars. I order mine from http://www.occmakeup.com

image

The eye shadows and blush were custom blended using the Makeup Forever Flash Palette. You can find it at a boutique near you or at http://www.makeupforever.com

image

Each slide featured a bold hair color as seen on fashion runways. The use of color by lead hairstylists transforms and adds a pop of flair! I bought mine at http://global.kryolan.com/product/color-spray

image

I hope you enjoy the collection as much as we did by creating it!

High School Senior Portraits with a twist!

Uncategorized

As a hair and make up artist,  I am called to be on set to make people photograph-ready.

This week was my first time being on set for high school senior portraits. I must say it was totally fun!

Lily, photographed by Nicolette Mollet, graduates this year and is a state champion in track and power lifting. She wanted to show both her athletic side and feminine side.

She looks awesome! Don’t you think?

Refocus & Rebalance with this 3 Day Juice Fast

Uncategorized

Feeling a little under the weather? Feeling stressed?  Over indulged?

Early call times, creativity spending, and hectic schedules drain energy so this is what I do to help me refocus and rebalance. I just turn to a quick 3 day cleanse to get glowing skin, take a break to reflect, and pay attention to my body.

I followed http://www.justonjuice.com for tips and recipes for this plan.

Here are some personal tips I have come across while going through this process:

* Upon arising, squeeze 1 lemon into a glass of warm water. Lemon helps purify the body

* Make sure you drink at least 16 oz of water after each juice to aid in a “full feeling” and help detoxify

* You might experience a dull headache. This is normal as your body is detoxing and you can experience withdrawals from toxins, sugar, caffeine, and carbs. **Please check with your doctor to ensure you are able to fast**

*Buy organic when at all possible

* Always was your fruits and vegetables prior to juicing

* I found my juicer at Target. I have had it for 3 years and is great! Here is the link: http:// http://m.target.com/p/omega-1000-centrifugal-juicer/-/A-570602#prodSlot=medium_1_33&term=juicer

* I juice a day’s worth of juices and keep them refrigerated.  I like to store my day’s juices in glass bottles instead of plastic, which has BPA and chemicals. I found mine at a dollar store in the Mason jar aisle

Below are the recipes I used as described at http://www.justonjuice.com:
