Olima Atelier Fashion Show

Last night was the Beverly Hills Fashion Festival for Charity, a day long fashion event where Proceeds from ticket sales went to benefit various worthy charities.

I was honored to help out for a great cause and create the makeup for Oscar Olima's exquisite line of clothing Olima Atelier, representing the Teddy Bear Clinic for abused children.

Oscar's pieces are very architectual, and the lines clean and modern, so for the makeup I wanted to keep it quite minimal.

I smoothed Chanel Pro Lumiere foundation over the models entire faces for a super flawless finish. No mascara, blush, or eyeshadow. I then added a bright "pop" of color to the girls lips using MAC Pro longwear lip creams in "Love Forever", a bright fuschia,  and "Good to Go" a deep, vibrant Orange, and that was it. Patricia Morales kept the hair clean, and slicked off the face. You can see how simple but striking the look is on Dallas, and Charlotte below....

Thanks to my fabulous makeup team, Kristina Brown and Anthony Nguyen for helping me rock out 13 girls in record time....You guys are awesome! :-)

"Kaleidoscope Floral"

Just out today, my new beauty story "Kaleidoscope Floral" in the November issue of Qlix Magazine!
Photography by Dorit Thies, Model Krystal Martos@Nous Agency, , Jewelry by Joe Polthakorn for Vilaiwan, and makeup by me!

I wanted to keep the makeup abstract and modern and use colors to compliment the beautiful handmade jewelry of designer Joe Polthakorn .

Krystal's fabulous face was the perfect canvas to play with gorgeous red, gold, silver, and purple pigments from MAC, OCC, and Benefit. The colors really showcased Joe's amazing pieces. So much fun! :-)
