Seems like the "geisha" inspired look is really in for this fall. Marc Jacobs featured his models walking down the runway in this white face and red lip look as did photographer Solve Sundsbo in a recent editorial spread for Muse Magazine. I think I might take some inspiration from the look when thinking of my Halloween costume this year...Dead Ballerina!
Erna Leon is an up and coming designer here in NYC. She makes fun and flirty dresses for the ultra feminine girl. I had the pleasure of doing the makeup on friends and models Katharine Brown and Michelle Easterline for the Spring/Summer 2010 lookbook. The photos turned out great..let me know what you think!

The Internationl Beauty Show took place at the Javitz Center and was a little bit of craziness. Nick and some of the other master stylists at Arrojo took the main stage to show off their cutting skills. Before the cutting we had a fashion show to show some fall hair trends. The makeup was fun to do.. .we did a black eye, matte face, and glossy lip. Backstage was nuts as we had to finish 18 models in about 2 hours but we pulled it off well and it was a great show!

Mr. Shawn Reddy will be huge...without a question. The second I saw his designs i was blown away and then after touching and looking closely at each piece there is no doubt he will go far. I had the pleasure of doing the makeup for his lookbook. Check out his amazing designs...the colors are soft yet make a statement!
So myself and photographer Lizzy Oppenheimer collaborated on a shoot with the help of hair stylist Summer Brown and New York Model Brooke Wells. We shot in Brooklyn at my cousin's apartment (thanks Michael and Abby) and it was amazing. The idea was to do something similar to the Brad Pitt and Angelina W magazine spread in 2005. A bored yet very glamourous housewife. It was a success and there were some great shots.
