Loving Milani Cosmetics!!

So I did a photo shoot today with a friend of mine, and she told me I could leave my kit at home?? She said someone from Milani Cosmetics was going to drop some product off, and that she wanted me to use it. Skeptical about the idea, I brought my basic kit ...just in case:) To my surprise, the Milani products worked beautifully on all of the models. I wasn't happy that I hadn't heard about them until today, but I'm glad I know about them now!

The shoot was pretty long, starting out being really hot outside, then turning very cold towards the night...and the make up stood the test of time. The models barely needed touch ups for shine, which is rare. Here is picture from super talented hair artist, Joshua Allen Brown's phone (taken towards the end of the shoot). I will post more pics as I get them!

Gearing up for the Golden Globes...

Here are a couple of behind the scenes shots of "the team" getting Stacey Dash ready for her NBC Golden Globes night on the town. Special thanks to her wardrobe stylist Lodie Spurlock, and her consultant Gina for making the preparation go smoothly!

We always have an amazing time getting her ready! It's like dressing up a doll.

The finished LOOK...

Stacey loves to look dewy and golden so I like to mix Chanel Translucent foundation #3 with Smashbox's Photo Finish Primer to set the skin. Then I take MAC's mineralized shimmer and highlight her face in certain areas for the glow. NARS Deep Throat blush is her favorite, then we seal the lips with a nude gloss.

Never Lit...Stacey Dash

I did a tweet a while ago about a new European campaign that I worked on with the beautiful Stacey Dash. The campaign was for an electronic cigarette that you have to charge, instead of light. For those of you trying to quit smoking, this is ideal! Here are some behind the scenes shots that I just came across. It looks like she's really smoking, huh?! Keep a look out for the ads, set to launch in the spring.
