Stacey Dash.......taking "Dash" forward!!

I have been working for the last few weeks on a new movie called "House Arrest" starring the beautiful Stacey Dash, and rapper The Game, so no time to blog obviously. Anyway, we just wrapped and I can't wait to share the experience.

Check out these behind the scenes pictures from the set, and get up close and personal with Stacey. She is such a joy to work with, and certainly dedicated to her craft. A true professional in the business in every way.

For those of you who are wondering, she doesn't like a lot of make up, and she definitely doesn't need it!! Her skin is incredible and with her everyday regimen, less is more. Click the link below to see what she finds attractive in man...

For more details on how to get her look, please stay tuned for our "How To" video!

"Faces of Ekqualyte" Look Book Shoot

I am always doing some interesting shoots, but this one takes the cake. Take a look at some behind the scenes shots of talented designer, Manuel Jackson's, Faces of Ekqualyte campaign and look book shoot. Photographer Felix Salzman of Look Book LA, was gracious enough to give his creative eye to this conceptually amazing project.

We were blessed to have very popular models Rich Ting of the 2009 Adidas campaign, and Taylor Reed whom you've probably seen in a few Target and NIKE ads recently, grace us with their gifts. They were both very genuine, and I am glad they were able to work with us.

Stay tuned for the Faces of Ekqualyte t-shirts to be at a boutique near you, and backstage at the BET Awards in a few weeks. He also has a crazy line of neck ties and bow ties hitting the market this fall.

Thank You...... SMASHBOX

I'm sure most of you guys have seen some of the make up disasters that High Definition television can bring out. Since I do more editorial make up than anything, venturing out into the world of HD was interesting to me. Well, I did my research on the best HD products out there right now. I kept reading articles about the new products Smashbox had to offer, and I couldn't wait to try them.

Check out High Definition Healthy FX Foundation & Function 5 Self-Adjusting Powder Foundation. They were sent to me for use on Michelle Williams, and it looked absolutely flawless on camera...perfect for everyday use too.

Chanta Patton...........WOW!!!!

In a previous post I let you behind the scenes of an editorial photo shoot for model Chanta Patton. The photographer was the very talented Derek Caballero, and of course the team was amazing. As you can see, the shoot was a complete success...

Michelle Williams........behind the scenes

I have truly been blessed my entire career, and I am always excited to work with new clients....especially Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child. It's like my life's work has come full circle, as my passion for the industry started with Beyonce' & Solange when I was only 19 yrs. old. Here are some behind the scenes shots (from my phone) of her new project, and how much fun we're having making it all come together. Shout out to the INCREDIBLE team of people on her glam squad...(she was very impressed by us all, and asked where have we been hiding:)

Michelle is a very humble, sincere, and down to earth person. Her voice is beautiful, and I can't wait to work with her again. Let's pray our show gets picked up, so you all can see what I mean!

Check out the fabulous wardrobe that was pulled for her......way to go Jason Griffin and Damein Jackson!

It's a wonderful thing in productions when all the elements line up, and priceless moments are shared. You never forget the experience!
