Cant ask for much more than a Sunday Funday spent working on a beautiful vintage shoot with my Favorite girl, Ashlee & the talented photographer, Ahren Nunag in La Jolla, CA! Excited to share some of my behind the scenes shots and a teaser from the shoot. Inspired by the iconic Audrey Hepburn!

Little Red Riding Hood

Even now that I am grown, I still ADORE fairytales & the stories we were told as children. I was lucky enough to explore my artistic creativity for a shoot with Marc Espina , who created the concept & shot this storybook fantasy shoot starring the beautiful Ashlee Rock of Rock 105.3. Thermal fingerwave style, lucious red lips and doe eyes that even made the “big bad wolf” weak in the knees. I present our collaboration of “Little Red Riding Hood!”

Fall Fashion Shoot 2011 x2

There is nothing like the excitement of incredible artists collaborating and the energy that is on location of professional shoots like these ones with Jay Warren of Studio 7a Photography. He is HANDS DOWN one of THE most inspiring artists I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I find I continually give myself a little pinch because I am SO blessed to work with him! He pushes me daily to want to raise my bar. Enjoy these pictures…Have to admit Im pretty proud. 🙂

I had SO much fun with this beauty’s red locks! Waves and curls were created with my trusty wand iron and end were left out from the barrel. Teasing was done throughout the midshaft with minimal lift throughout the base. TUTORIAL TO COME. Obsessed!:)

To working with people who inspire you to be your best,

sneek peek of fall 2011 fashion shoot

Wednesday I had the pleasure of working on a beautiful fashion shoot in the country side of Murrieta, CA. It was a gorgeous day oozing with undeniable talent. Working with my amazing friend, Jay Warren of Studio 7a Photography along with Photographer Lenny Lesser and videographer Jason Taylor .
The focus of the shoot was to obtain high end and casual catalog fashion shots and collaborate with some great artists and beautiful models.

There were 3 models, all of which I had the pleasure of dolling up! Going with the Bohemian/Hippie/Vintage Rustic fashion looks, 2 of three models were first prepped with Goldwell’s Top Whip Mousse to create a base and hold for irons and braids. After dried all hair was misted with Enjoy’s Styling Spray as a working spray and thermal protectant and a Enzo no clamp iron was used to created soft romantic curls/translated waves topped with Sebastian’s ReShaper as the finishing spray. Traditional braids and a rope braid were showcased, as well as a reformed (modernized) milkmaid-braid.

Make up looks included light, minimal foundation and MAC’s Strobe cream were used to create a dewy look. Eyes were kept glowing with Urban Decay’s Naked Palette for gold and smokey tones, along side MAC’s Melon Pigment  (which was also used on the apples of the cheeks for a high light). Minimal eye liner was applied, just heavy mascara in my trusty waterproof Maybelline Great Lash and lips were lined with a natural liner and NYX Mega Shine lip Gloss in Sugar Pie.

Overall a great day..and Im beyond excited to show off more of the shots. 🙂

from the girl who glosses up the beauties,
