Yesterday photo shoot with Times-Picayune (www.timespicayune.com)went well. Stephanie interviewed me last week about holiday makeup this year and what will be my favorite makeup item to use. For the holidays is when I really attend a lot of events and private parties and my favorite thing is to play up my eyes and just do a light nude or pink lip. L'Oreal came out with 5 new HIP metallic eye shadows that are amazing. Lots of pigments, and when I saw the new colors earlier this year I just knew which one was going to be the most popular one for the holidays especially for NEW YEAR'S. So I talked about the HIP duo eyeshadow in platinum and also the HIP cream eyeliner in black. Can't forget about my shu uemura eyelashes. So Susan L. (who I adore and respect) is the beauty/fashion editor for Times Picayune called me and asked if I could do a shoot using the items that I spoke about.
So yesterday we got together to put together a very quick shoot since the pictures were needed for Friday. Joseph the photographer did an amazing job capturing the look that I needed. He really focused on the face and baby girl did her part by giving me not a lot of attitude but just enough face. I love working with her. Baby Girl helped me out for the Austin Scarlett fashion show at the W. Hotel and then she was the model for the New Orleans magazine photo shoot as well. We get along very well and she is such a sweet girl that we have so much fun working together. She reminds me of Shontell, very sweet, very loyal, very easy to work with and can just give you face. Gotta add my girl Ayaka Lynn to the list of models that I find are amazing girls but she left me and went back to Japan. We talked about me starting back up my agency for models and makeup artists/hair stylists in 09'. If I could get some time at night to start organizing it then don't be surprise when Top Ladies resurface.
Anyway here are a few of the pics and more is to come but I can't post all of them. Be on the look out in Times-Picayune WISH insert. The fashion magazine that comes out in certain areas of the city.
