New beauty shoot exclusively on FASHION GONE ROGUE!

October 2, 2014

I have a new beauty shoot running exclusively on These images were shot by Trever Hoehne, Modeled by Cailin Russo, Styled by Simona Sabo, Hair by Kristin Heitkotter and Makeup by Anthony Merante.

To get the many looks I created on Cailin I used cream eye shadows from MAC Cosmetics and a copper shade from Laura Mercier. I applied all over lid with my finger and blended into the crease with soft eye shadow brush. I then brushed the brows into place. For the nude lips, I used Dose Of Colors Lipstick in the PERFECT nude called POISE. For the darker looks, I applied Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof cream color in JET all over lid and blended into crease. I then took a black eye shadow to set the color and then placed a small amount of Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream to the ball of the eye for a glossy look.

Fitness Magazine Editorial using DIOR SKIN

October 28, 2011

I shot a fun spread for Fitness Magazine November/December issue a few months ago. My favorite shot is the Yoga pose. I wish I was as flexible as our model was. LOL

Martini & Rossi Advertising

October 23, 2011

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.
