Yesterday was the worst day of all days in the past 2 months in terms of weather! It has been hot and sunny and not rainy for the past 2 months. But yesterday it hit us with everything Rain, Wind and even a little hail.

I woke up knowing that i had to go to the passport office which by the way was so easy and quick, unlike the American Bureaucracy where you have to sit for hours and wait. I was there for all of 20 minutes! Anyway I got a text when i woke asking me if i wanted to do a shoot on the heath so after a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and where-is-it-gonna-be-ing we scheduled to meet after the passport office. As i get off the underground to its starts to gently rain (deep breath) and i walk up to the Band-stand where the models and photographer were standing and waiting for me. It was a covered area but there were no walls so the wind was howling and the poor girls weren’t really wearing much so they were shivering. As we start to do the make up the wind picks up and it starts raining really hard and its freezing so we pack up and go to the cafe. They then kicked us out even thought we bought drinks so we had to go do our preps outside!! It stopped raining and the sun threatened to come out. we managed to finish without getting totally wet just a little wet!

That is a little insight on what models and their teams go through to look beautiful and make the perfect picture. So no its not easy being anyone in the Fashion industry.

Keep warm and happy

Last night I went to a shoot in the Bronx With Boytoyrocks.com. It was in a basement and was all very dark and mysterious. The theme of the shoot was goth sexy! I wasnt sure how the shoot would be. One of the models didnt turn up but the other model was Sarah Hartshorne from ANTM!! which was great! She is a really sweet girl and we had a great time together.

The make up was fierce!! Black and Red which was a lot of fun to do. I helped accessorize sarah and we had a lot of fun working together!!

Pics coming soon!!!

_POC2155 resizedHad a great shoot in Manhattan on Friday. The girl i did makeup on was really pretty and had great great skin. We shot at the top of a building and the views were amazing if a little terrifying, I’m afraid of heights. We shot on this teeny tiny porch on the 20th floor! oh man i was wetting myself!! lol

I used the HD makeup foundation by MUFE on her face and I love it!! It is a great foundation and has great results, great coverage.

What fun that was!!! Working with beautiful women.

I love that they incorporated non Model Models who are breast cancer survivors. That is a great thing about NYGARD if you buy something from the store part of what you spend goes to Breast cancer research!

Lashes
One thing that i noticed while i was putting lashes on the girls is that the lashes that are not a full thick strip are much harder to put on. The corners don’t stick as well to the corner of the eye as well as the ones that have spaces in between!! If you see 101 has no space between the hairs but if you look at 113 there is so i prefer to use the 113 type! they stick better and are easier to appl

Wow what a week this one has been! Been on set all week shooting!
Crazy crazy stuff but it has been great meeting all these new people and giving my card out (hoping).

Its amazing to use my airbrush system and see the results. They are absolutely amazing. Its like using photoshop but not on the computer. All the retouching people will be out of jobs soon. It literally erases all imperfections and comes out great on the camera! The Airbrushing foundation that I have been using is by OCC and everyone loves loves how it feels when it is being applied. They say it’s a cool spray that feels really good and very pampering. Every time i told my models that I was going to Airbrush them their faces glowed from excitement. They all loved it and looked amazing. It is quick and easy way of applying makeup and I love doing it.

The Make Up For Ever HD finishing powder is the most amazing Product! It goes on clear even when you keep re-applying all day, which i have been doing all week. So far it has worked up to what i expected and more. Everyone that i used it on loved it, the texture, the way it felt once applied, and how it looked (or didn’t look)

Wishing all a restful night!!
