FATHER EARTH



Creative Make Up Collaboration with Arian Marcos. Arian wanted to photograph a different kind of beauty. I realised that there is nothing more beautiful than the planet the we live in. Earth has always been portrayed as woman, but what happens when he becomes a man?

Our planet is not how it used to be, it was more beautiful. Father Earth has become melancholy because of our neglect. Let's not wait for its further destruction. Save it in your own little way. :)

GRAZIE GRAZIELLA!






I had a great opportunity to work with Florence based Jewelry company, Graziella last week when they showcased their one of a kind pieces at the International Jewelry Week. To say that the pieces are beautiful is simply an understatement. They are, for me exquisite!

GLAMMING WITH MIMOSA

CANDID AND LOVELY :)

FARAH AND THE ROLLERS :)

THE LOVELY JENINE. MODELS DO EAT

Photoshoot for the label Mimosa 2 weeks ago with the talented Arian Marcos. I have to say that I have never seen more beautiful kaftans than that of Mimosa. The collection will be out in select boutiques in Dubai and Saudi Arabia.

I made 2 looks for the shoot. First one was classic... simple eyes with red lips and bumped up do. The second one was a mix of the 70's and 80's beauty trends. Powerful eyes and lips paired with full Farah Fawcett Hair :)

SUGAR & SPICE AND EVERYTHING NICE WITH SIMONE HENG

THE LOVELY SIMONE HENG WITH THE CUPCAKES :)

LOVIN' THE VINTAGE TEA POT

SETTING A FLAWLESS BASE IS VERY IMPORTANT

EARLY CALL TIME BUT THE ENERGY WAS HIGH!

I had an amazing photo shoot last week with one of the sweetest and prettiest ladies in Dubai, Simone Heng. Simone and I met last April when she joined my Faces Season 2 workshop. She definitely kept the energy high with her bubbly personality :)

For this shoot, Simone wanted to go vintage/Stepford Wife feel. And I was not disappointed with the vintage cups that we got for the shoot. Simone also brought cupcake decors that she made herself. She knits! How cool is that! :)

For the clothes, Simone opted for pinks and peaches to evoke that girly glam feel and we topped it off with prettier that pretty head bands from Sophie's Closet.

I kept the skin matte with Chanel Matte Lumiere. To give Simone the gamine feel, which she carries perfectly, I gave her a slightly thicker brow a la Audrey Heburn. Kept the whole girly pink feel with Nars Orgasm Blush and Girl About Town Lipstick from MAC.

For the hair, I made a deep side part and teased the crown area.
