A fun outtake from our recent Bobbi Brown collaboration! Model Shae Butters (who literally has skin like butter!) looked so great in this natural look that I couldn’t resist snapping a few extra shots before adding the more dramatic makeup. Click here to see the official post!

Staz in Pink

Staz Lindes, Robin Black, Outtakes, PinkI’m re-organizing the Beauty Is Boring studio this week and finding tons of old Polaroids, including this makeup test on Staz Lindes – musician, model and muse.  Can’t remember exactly when we shot this but it’s a really 80’s look… so 80’s that evidently I didn’t even blend the blush. Ha!
