Celebrating Brooke Candy’s birthday today in the Beauty Is Boring studio! It was the perfect opportunity to play with yet another new shade of the NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment – a bright fuchsia color called Give It Up.
How cool is this… I am collaborating with YouCam Makeup to turn some of my favorite Beauty Is Boring looks into digital versions that you can try on using their app! You can download YouCam Makeup for free from your app store.
In the studio today shooting party looks for New Years Eve with the charming Emily Ruhl! The NYE looks will be posted to The Face page on the 30th… in the meanwhile, here is Emily (sans party makeup) getting into the mood of things in one of Bobby Eliot’s fabulous wigs.
I snapped these behind the scenes on set for our Marc Jacobs Limited Edition Beauty Box shoot. The hair look, created by Bobby Eliot, reminds me of Antonio Lopez’s glamorous Polaroids of 1970’s models like Jerry Hall. The model, Crystal Van Commenee, is a gorgeous new face that I have been working with quite a bit recently. And yes, that is her real hair color!
Taking it off is sometimes even more fun than putting it on… these were snapped after a L’oreal Paris shoot last year with the gorgeous Sophie Koella. Sophie is brilliant on both sides of the lens, check her Instagram for a sample of her photography work. Hair by Bobby Eliot, hoodie by Calvin Klein.
The incredibly chic Linda Rodin recently launched Rodin Luxury Lipstick, a carefully curated collection of five colors with a moisturizing texture and a hint of her signature fragrance. I have been wanting to test it so after our official shoot, model and artist Sheena Lim picked out her favorite shade (Red Hedy) and we snapped a few shots. Great pigment density and a high shine finish!
