Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Me with very long hair, doing makeup on camera on the sisters from NERVO, at an event, in the dark with very little light. We had a blast.

LURK Natural Fragrances.

LURK is a New York brand that I was introduced to by a model friend in N.Y.C who was carrying LURK RSW005 with her in her handbag. The gorgeous bottle intrigued me. Sandalwood and Rose comprise this all natural scent and I was immediately smitten. A quick visit to their website revealed even more earthy scents and the muslin bag they come in is a plus too. Only the purest essential oils go into these all natural perfume oil blends with no preservatives, chemicals, water or alcohol in the mix. Learn more about LURK here….

And if you’re in Sag Harbor be sure to visit the store:

LURK 28 West Water Street Sag Harbor, NY 11963 631-919-5000

Laura Vandervoort for PETA.

This is my absolute favorite PETA campaign that I have worked on yet. Laura was underwater for a lot longer then anyone anticipated and I have Colorescience, Tarte, Make Up For Ever and OCC Cosmetics to thank for the waterproof beauty. Makeup by me.

Essie “Ballet Slippers”….I wear this shade for all of my on-camera makeup demonstrations and interviews because it makes nails look so classic and clean. My all time favorite!

Sheswai.

On the Sheswai Lacquer website you are greeted immediately with the gorgeous logo- “Sheswai Lacquer…..modern glamour with a rootsy feel.” It’s a perfect description for the feel of this brand. I love to discover products with a conscience. I really care about the intention behind the brand. The lovely founder of Sheswai Lacquer is Debbie Leavitt- a Southern California born and raised, eco-focused, celebrity manicurist that works with the biggest names in fashion & film. Even before I realized that she was an artist with my agency, Cloutier Remix, I was in love with her Sheswai Lacquer. Sheswai Lacquer has an enchanting collection of colors housed in the most beautifully designed, eye catching packaging- gorgeous gold graphics and sustainably harvested wood handles. No polish bottle has ever inspired me more to want to paint my nails. I have so many Sheswai Lacquer favorites.

Honeyfox, seen here, is one of my all time favorite reds….

Sheswai Lacquer is cruelty-free and does not contain formaldehyde, toluene and DBP’s.

This beloved California brand evokes natural beauty & sunshine and will inspire a strong desire to wear sandals in a snowstorm. Learn more about the brand here.

Lucy Mecklenburgh.

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

Unless you are a Brit- and a fan of British reality television- chances are you probably have not heard of Lucy yet. I just worked with Lucy on a shoot for Ok Magazine UK here in Beverly Hills. She was such a sweet, lovely girl. We were told she was Britain’s Snookie….I don’t know about that because I haven’t seen her show, but if the paparazzi swarm in Beverly Hills for her was any indication….she is definitely a star on the rise. Here are some of the looks we created for Lucy for her OK Magazine shoot.
