2012 is upon us. Is the world ending? Are aliens going to come down and take over? Who cares…all I know is that I have a desperate need to create. Perhaps the stars are aligned! This year I will focus on creating beautiful images and creating beautiful art. A resolution? Sure, I think of it the passion that is my life.
Below are images from my gorgeous shoot with photographer Anthony Altamore and hair stylist extraordinaire Andrew Zepeda. Our inspiration was moody and gorgeous. Two words that can definitely describe Andrew and myself…but I digress. Crystal from Pinkerton Models was an amazing girl with fabulous eyes who did not disappoint. Enjoy!
I recently had the pleasure of working with the fabulous and talented photographer Bonnie Holland. I loved the final image so much, I wanted to share how to get the look. Enjoy!
Voula! A gorgeous vintage look without the heavy liner. Special thanks to Marcia Hamilton who did an amazing job on this beautiful hair!
This just in! Photos and video from my shoot with Roland Sands Designs for their 2011 Ad Campaign. These images are featured on their US and International catalog as well as their website. Such a fun day and probably one of the funnest models I have ever worked with<3

Makeup and water don’t mix….or do they? They answer is YES. Yes they do, thanks to my new best friend Make Up For Ever. I’ve always had a crush on Make Up For Ever but after today we are officially going steady. I may even change my status on Facebook.
Let me get to the point. I was asked to do an underwater music video fir Erin Powers (behind the scene photos to come) and scoured the internet for tips on how to make makeup stay underwater. Other makeup artists had lots of ideas but the common thread was Eye Seal from Make Up Forever. I love seal! And not the Heidi Klum Seal. I digress…..So here’s the skinny. You can add this liquid to any pigment powder or eyeshadow scraping, mix in up, paint it on the lid and presto! You get a budge proof eyeshadow. Once you have it mixed up, you can also apply the mixture with an eyeliner brush to get a bold eye liner.
You can also seal your lipstick by applying a thin layer to prevent it from deteriorating underwater. The possibilities of the product are endless!
Below is a list of what I used on the face and let me tell you, this makeup did NOT move. The talent was swimming under water for over two hours not to mention diving.
Extra Hot Tip: If the makeup is going to be photographed under the water, you need to bump up the colors of the eyeshadow, lipstick etc. It always photographs a bit lighter.

Such a fantastic shoot today with http://www.sasha-gold.com/. I’m convinced we are a modern day dream team. And miss Sparrow worked her ass off. No it’s not Xtina. Pretty close though. Much sweeter I’m sure.
