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!
