Behind the Scenes: Magazine Editorial Photoshoot with Reesephotog

Creative geniuses like Heather aka Reeesephotog on IG seriously inspire me to be push my creating boundaries. Her work is incredible remarkable and I am honored to have multiple opportunities to work with her because she seriously radiates a certain sense of confident and unapologetic talent that motivates me! One of my favorite Seattle photographers, she's doing it big with her signature vintage style by working with so many significant companies like Free People and For Love and Lemons!

Contour and Blush Launch Party

I am so excited to announce that my launch party will be this Friday evening on June 26th at 9pm in Seattle at a place called Mosswood (Beck's Studio) right above the auto shop next to Canon in Capital Hill (address provided in the link below). Everything is coming together and I can't hardly wait!!!

My launch party will be an intimate networking event that will showcase my work as a makeup artist! We will have a live makeup tutorial by me, a makeup fashion show, DJ, open bar, and a ton of fun! 

I am working with my good friend and excellent photographer and stylist Heather McIntosh aka @reesephotog (IG) to style my fashion show and about 9 beautiful freelance and also signed models, my amazing MC Scott Hanna, and also my venue host and party bartender Brian Beck. It is such a blessing to work with so many amazing and talented people. I can't wait for you to experience this huge collaboration with me and my team!

Final Photos: Vintage Free People Commercial Photoshoot

This photoshoot was so much fun!!! One of my all time favorite shoots, I was literally in awe with the location and style! It is always an honor to work with Heather!!! She's just so simply incredible. Our model Celeste was perfect for this shoot. She has an enchanting vintage quality about her look so for her makeup I played up her prominent eyes and added a dark maroon smokey look and red/purple lips with minimum face makeup. Check out the incredible photos!
