I was browsing the internet and found a editorial I did with Lydia Hearst for Italian Style Magazine last Spring. We shot this spread at the famous Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, styled by Kendrick Osorio and shot by Robert Gallagher. I hope you enjoy the pics below.
I just got some images from an ad I did last year for Martini & Rossi. The images were shot by Giuliano Bekor and were shot at the Universal backlot in the Italian area The forecast for that day was 80% chance of rain and it sprinkled here and there a few times throughout the day but nothing major. When we finally got the final shot at 3pm it started to rain cats and dogs. It ended up raining for 3 days straight after that.
I hope you enjoy the images and celebrate the upcoming holiday season with some Martini.
My girl, China Anne McClain dropped her NEW music video for her smash hit song “Calling All The Monsters” a few weeks ago and is #3 on the iTunes video charts! I have been getting a ton of request asking me what I used to create China’s look for the video. This video was one of the best videos I have ever worked on, the energy was amazing and even though it was two 12 hour days, you would have never guessed, cause we had that much fun!
China is naturally beautiful and doesn’t require much makeup. So I wanted to do something playful and young. To get China’s Calling All The Monsters makeup, just follow the few easy steps below!
Step #1: Moisturize skin with Dermalogica Active Moist all over face and let it soak into the skin for a few minutes. Apply a shimmering bronzer to the high planes of the face like the cheek bones, bridge of nose, forehead and chin. I used IMAN Sheer Finish Bronzer in Clay. This bronzer adds a beautiful golden luminous glow to the skin.
Step #2: For the Eye liner, I used this awesome NEW 24/7 waterproof liquid liners from Urban Decay in Woodstock (Bright Pink). I applied this very close to the lash line and lined the top eyelid. Let the liner dry for a few minutes and then apply Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Catfight on top of the pink liquid liner for extra sparkle! I then applied two small ruby red rhinestones to the outer corner of the eyes with some DUO Lash Glue. To finish off the eyes, I applied one coat of Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Lifting Mascara in black to the top lashes.
Step #3: I wanted to give the cheeks a subtle rosy glow and I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Highlighting Creme Duo in St Tropez and applied the berry pink shade to the apples of the cheeks and blended outwards.
Step #4: Since the focus was on the eyes, I went with a toned down lip. I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Hydrafull Lipgloss in Flamingo which is a rosy pink.
I hope you enjoy this makeup as much as I enjoyed working on this video. Congratulations to China Anne McClain for another hit song!
Congratulations to LORETTA DEVINE for her win at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards last night. She took home the trophy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama for her role on Grey’s Anatomy playing Adele Webber. Loretta’s dress was designed by Angela Dean and she looked stunning!
For Loretta’s eyes I used the Anastasia Illumin8 Eye Shadow Duo in My Bedford. I applied this shadow with a damp brush to give it staying power. For the lips I lined them with MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil in shade 10C and then I applied the Anastasia Hydrafull Gloss in Sangria.
I was browsing the internet tonight looking for a release date for Disney’s A.N.T. Farm star China Anne McClain’s NEW song called “Calling all the monsters” and I found this very cool behind the scenes video. I got to glam China Anne for this video and the makeup look is ELECTRIFYING to say the least!
Calling all the monsters song will premier on Radio Disney tomorrow September 9th at 4pm and the video drops September 18th, but in the mean time, check out this great teaser below.

I have not done a product of the week in a while now so I thought I would review a few great lip glosses!
MAC Cosmetics has recently launched a lipglass and lipstick called “GAGA 2″ The shade is sort of a brownish, peachy beige. Not exactly an easy color for everyone to wear, but I really like this lip glass paired with a pink lip liner like Dervish, also from MAC Cosmetics.

The MAC AIDS fund has raised over 200 Million since it was established in 1994.

I glammed up actress Brittany Snow last tonight for the AMA’s and she looked stunning on the red carpet for the Rolling Stones party. To get the look!
Face: I prepped and primed the skin with Dermalogica Active Moist with a few drops of the Skin Hydrating Booster. I then applied Urban Decay Surreal Skin Foundation in Trance with a damp sponge. Since this is a cream to powder foundation, there was no need to set it with powder. I then bronzed the skin with Josie Maran Bronzing powder in Beach No.1 and then applied the NEW Josie Maran Argan Color stick in Petal Pink to the apples of the cheeks and blended.
Eyes: For the eyes, I wanted to go with a shimmery brown neutrals so I used Urban Decay Deluxe Eye Shadow in Underground and applied all over the eye up to the crease and brought it to the lower lash line as well. I lightly sculpted the eye crease with Josie Maran Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Smoke and also defined the lower lash line with the same color. I highlighted the brow bone with JMC Eye Shadow in Beach. I filled in the brows with Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Golden Blonde and then brushed them into place with Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde. I wanted a full lash look so I applied a strip of Demi Wispies lashes from Ardell and brushed them together with Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara.
Body: Brittany was wearing a peachy champagne colored dress so I wanted her skin to glow. I achieved this by using a great new product from Vanity Mark Cosmetics. It is a transfer resistant body makeup and adds the perfect amount of color to the skin.
