This is what happens when Carly Cardellino, the Senior Beauty Editor for Cosmopolitan.com, stops by the Beauty Is Boring studio for a casual visit… It began with an hour of non-stop beauty talk which turned into swatching new products and then somehow evolved into a full on photo shoot. It’s Carly’s fault for being so damn photogenic and for reminding me of 60’s actress Sharon Tate. I always admired Sharon Tate’s signature nude lips and exaggerated lashes so this was the perfect opportunity to do an updated version.
Note: Whenever Carly and I get together, it turns into a beauty adventure. On her previous visit, we went on a research (i.e. shopping) tour of Japanese beauty supplies in LA’s Little Tokyo district.
Another Note: In a twist of irony, I was completely out of my usual Japanese bottom lash strips for this shoot with Carly… the same bottom lash strips that I bought in bulk on our Little Tokyo shopping trip. Luckily I was able to simply reverse and trim a pair of the great Georgie La Cherie Faux Lashes to create the look.
