Scenes from the Set

I have a bit of a fascination with on-set pictures... as you can tell. It's been a busy couple of weeks, so I will just do a basic picture dump with captions.

Interviewing the lovely Yvette Nicole Brown.

Did I mention how into Jao products I am? I would bathe in the hand refresher if I could.

Feet on Set: This is a music video I helped out my girl Christina Guerra on. It was super late and there was lots of pyro- good combination, no?

Set bag view from another job, I was kind of obsessed with this carpet.

Sometimes I get so surprised at the places I get to go to- this is the fitness room at the Ritz-Carlton, how motivating.

Always the sign of a good shoot to come.

EXTRA Repair Foundation SPF 25 ($55)

I've been super obsessed with Bobbi Brown's EXTRA Repair Foundation SPF 25. Now, I don't really carry foundations with SPF in my kit for a number of reasons- I don't have the "fear of the flash" titianium dioxide thing, because to be honest, there are plenty of other common minerals in make-up that are responsible for the same effect- Mica? Anyone? Bueller? Typically, I find that a foundation with SPF can end up being fairly compromised, either in the look, shade or staying power. SPF is something I usually reserve for the skin care regime. However, that being said, the Bobbi Brown foundations never cease to impress me AND they usually have SPF in them. I'm kind of a foundation turncoat- when I run out of one foundation, I'll try another. So far my favorites have been the following: Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15,  Make Up For Ever Face & Body Liquid Make Up, CoverFX NaturalFX and now Bobbi Brown EXTRA Repair.

The formula itself is infused with Shea Butter and Evening Primrose Oil and I like to layer it over the Bobbi Brown EXTRA Face Oil. I have combination skin that borders on the side of oily, and to be honest, I don't like to be matte at all and I love to use oils in my skincare.

Behind The Scenes: Prager + New York Times

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of working with miss Alex again. Those who read my blog know that I've been working with Ms. Prager for a while now, and it's always fun to be a part of her world. I've done a few shoots with Alex for the New York Times in the past, they are always colorful, quirky and a blast to be a part of and this shoot was no exception. Also, special thanks to our fantastic assistants: Katie, Melissa and Ren.

One of the best crews.

I love picture cars.

Kind f a beautiful way to store press on nails, no?

Post shoot self portrait on the drive home.
Battlestation- been using a ton of Embryolisse lately and as always the Naked Palette, as well as some of the OCC concealer prototypes and my favorite Make Up For Ever Face and Body foundation.

Lately I've been having great luck (knock-on-wood) with turnaround time for jobs. As most artists in my industry can attest, sometimes the wait for images can be a pretty antsy one- especially when you've seen the images from the monitor and you know they are going to be super-dope. I remember when I did hair on an O'Neill campaign a few years ago, and I was so excited for it to be released but it took a couple months of scouring Teen Vogue- then or course once it was out, it was everywhere. But it's the anticipation, really. You might remember these from one of my first posts called Cataloggin', well some of the images were released as a splash on the website today and they turned out so adorable and adorable lifestyle is right up my alley.
