Arlenis @ Marilyn's

OMG....She is going to be so fierce for my book!!! I heard she just did something MAJUH with Meisel for Italian Vogue, I can't wait for thursday!

the Hook Up!

So a couple of weeks ago I was shooting with this photographer who is married to a marketing director at MAC. Well I got to look at some kinda old MAC promo books while I was waiting for the hairstylist to finish, and I noticed they used these books to take phone messages. (I was salivating!) Well, the photographer noticed I was taking notes of the makeup look I did in my little notebook and handed me a fresh an new MAC Backstage Book! These are harder to get than those damn face charts! I'm loving it and I'm happy to have it, I just don't wanna use it an mess it up! I have to get an artists sketch pad.

Ahoy MAC Mates!

Thanks to Karen and my clever powers of deduction, I had a feeling the Naughty Nauticals collection would be on counter early at the MAC Pro Showroom. I was right!! I had to get my hand on the blue nail lacquer and that Port Red lipstick before they went from LE to SOLD OUT!

I purchased....

Smoothblue Technakohl liner
Naughty Nautical nail lacquer
Party Mate lipstick
Port Red lipstick (2)
Bell-Bottom Blue pigment
Meet The Fleet e/s*
Submarine e/s
Pro wedges

*I'm thinking of going back to exchange meet the fleet eye shadow for Illegal Cargo and picking up a Mutiny pigment.

Also ran into CS, Manager of the Artist Management division. She asked me to send her an email of suggestions to help make the studio more photographer friendly, since some of the photographers I shot with there have some suggestions to make it better, as well as for something else she's proposing.

Some Selects from 04-18-08

So the photographer sent me some images he was 'messin around with' and wanted to get my thoughts. I like them, their nice! To bad the studio was suffering from a melt down as we were warming up...

Behind the Scenes

As much as I'm bored by nude makeup...sometimes it's really all about clean, fresh skin with a hint of Peach!

H - A - I - R HAIR!
It's a Hair Affair!

Bring it to the studio sweetie!

Looking for NY based hairstylists interested in TFCD and more. (If your not based in the area, should be able to make it in town.) Must be able to do editorial hair, and not have the hair take over the story, unless that's the look we're going for. Shoot me an email if your interested. Shoot schedule is picking up.

Lenard Smith Exhibit & Studio Visit

Try and make time to see photographer Lenard Smith's exhibit at ICP. If you can, try an stop by for a studio visit. Looks like he's finishing The ICP-Bard MFA Program in Advanced Photographic Studies.

Don't we love photographers with an artistic point of view?

I strongly believe in working with student photographers!! I've worked with a few peeps from SVA, another photographer I shoot with goes to ICP (I think.) He had to do a project based on a film he had never seen before. So he rented "Lost in Translation." He couldn't get the Asian girl he wanted, she was in thing I knew, he was on a plane to London.

If you don't have passion, creativity burning inside you....what do you have??

Models of The Day

We all know Ben Kohl is one of the coolest guys in town at the moment.

All I can say about Yelena is FAB ENERGY!! You know that 'Supermodel' energy! I will be calling for her again.

Unfortunately, just as things started heating up on set...the studio suffered a melt down and sent us home early. Oh well, there's always another day! Time for a cocktail!
