Ending The Year With A Music Video

It was a pleasure ending the year with Shontelle and her music video “Yesterday”. Filmed at the magical Oheka Castle in Long Island. The crew was from Russia and transported the 3D technology for the 360 degree video. Cant wait to see this state of the art video!

Theory SS16

This show was one of the best sponsored shows I have ever worked on! La Prairie was so generous to give the artists the products to keep most of the makeup companies don’t do this so they won hands down! Working with the direction of key makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo, it was all about making the girls look expensive. The cremes and serums we used on the models faces warranted this mantra. We mixed the concealers with the face oil from La Prairie which made it glide onto the skin leaving a perfect finish. Highlights were added to the face and gloss to the eyelids. Nude lip liner was used to glaze the whole lip & Evening Nude lipstick on top. Evening Nude was also used on the cheeks. The presentation was on the roof of the Theory showroom. Amazing!

Reem Acra SS16

It was so great to be a part of this show keyed by Mark Carrasquillo. The look was black liquid pen liner tightly lined around the eyes. No mascara and nude lip. Skin was contoured with Kevyn Aucoin concealers. A healthy glow was added to the face to keep the models looking young and desirable.

SS16 Fashion Week NYC Rachel Zoe

Charlotte Tilbury used mat shadows from MAC to create the look for the Rachel Zoe show. Some of the eyes shadow colors were brown down, corduroy, & malt swept across the lid. The liner was costa riche & it thinly lined the top and bottom of eye. White liner inside and black mascara on top and bottom lashes. Plenty of freckles penciled in on the models faces. The lip liner was boldly bare. The new mat gloss lipstick (not out yet) was lady be good & mademoiselle. Below are some images I took backstage at the show. It was great to be a part of this show doing makeup!
