Behind the scenes at my shoot for Mirrin Magazine

Yesterday I had the privilege of collaborating with photographer Melissa Rodwell, on an amazing story for London's Mirrin Magazine Summer 2010 issue Our stylist Angela pulled tons of fabulous clothes and jewelry. Our models Ana, and Eugenia at Photogenics, and Daniel and Amadeus at Ford were fantastic, and totally got into the vibe of the shoot, and hairstylist Damian Monzillo rocked out some wicked hair!

The look and feel of the shoot was very Victorian, and I wanted to bring out that otherwordly antique feel with the makeup. On Ana and Eugenia I used OCC Makeup pigments in Copperwire, and Brasstacks all over their lids and under eyes. I then lined both the girls and boys eyes on top and bottom with Le Crayon Kohl eyepencil from Lancome in "Black Ebony", and smudged the lines with a brush to make the whole thing very diffused and undone looking; but still sexy and smokey.

The location was gorgeous and we shot just down the beach from Diane Von Furstenbergs house in Malibu, Ca. The weather was sunny and beautiful, and the pictures were magical...Can't wait to see the final images!!!
