Style Me Pretty Feature: Youyou and Rahul's Wedding

As I scrolled through my blog feed this morning, I was delighted to see Youyou and Rahul's gorgeous wedding up on Style Me Pretty. When I met Youyou for her trial, she told me all about their Lord of The Rings meets Midsummer Night's Dream inspiration. And that there would be an instrumental version of "Sweet Child of Mine" in there somewhere. WHAT?! Clearly we were meant to me. Okay, actually her and Rahul were meant to be. But obviously I was so excited to get to do her makeup on such an awesome day. We chose to create an ethereal, glowing look that was both natural but romantic with touches of lavender and slate grey on her eyes. Head to Style Me Pretty to see more of their big day

Fashion! Turn to the left! Fashion! Turn to the right!

Oooh fashion! We are the goon squad and we're coming to town. Beep beep!

Ok, enough David Bowie lyrics. It's that time again, New York Fashion Week! I'm excited to be working with most of the same teams as last season. My schedule this time is a bit more spread out this season so that make me very happy! 

Here's a few snaps from shows I worked on last September. Can't wait to get backstage again and dive deep into the beautiful madness!

New Work: Mara Hoffman Spring 2014

These last few months have been quite busy! Which is great as we head into a rather unpredictable winter season. As I prepare for lots of clients attending holiday & new years parties, as well as starting to meet with bridal clients for next year, I am taking a look back at 2013. Most recently I worked on a few shoots with the fabulous Mara Hoffman for upcoming Spring collections.

Definitely had a blast on this shoot for the Spring editorial for her website. We were inspired by heavy kohl liner and of course, as always, gorgeous skin & brows. I created a deep navy kohl lined eye, exaggerating the line to extend far beyond the eye on the lower lid. The effect is smoldering in an unexpected way.

Stay tuned for more! I'll break down the look from the Spring look book soon.
