Collaborating with brilliant artists and creators is one of the best ways to spend the day in the studio! For the second set of images in our Artist Series, I worked with hair color genius, creative director and artist Aura Friedman. You may know Aura from mentions in Allure, shout outs by supermodels for her amazing blonding abilities, her own Instagram account or just because you adore artistic hair color and her name is always on the top of that list. I can confirm that all the love she gets is justified!
Aura is arguably the most creative and skilled colorist working today. She also uses her artistic eye to direct music videos as well as creative direct editorial photo shoots and fashion videos. As a bonus, Aura is cool. Really cool and down to earth and sweet and exactly the kind of woman that everyone wants to be friends with. For our shoot, she brought along muse/model/actor Alex Elizabeth – another really cool, down to earth, sweet and funny as hell, woman.
Note: I used the new Swipe Lip Compact from Flesh Beauty to create this “blurred” lip look. Oh and I didn’t list the lashes because they are from a tiny makeup shop in Little Tokyo with a label all in kanji. I’ve never found them for sale online or in any other shop.
