The first anniversary issue of Papercut Magazine is finally out and features actress Jaimie Alexander of the filmTHOR‘.  I’m so happy to have been a part of this amazing team!  Shot on location in West Hollywood, the superstar lineup was: Photographer Alvin Nguyen, stylist Alvin Stillwell (Celestine Agency), Jaimie Alexander (Kyle XY) of ‘THOR’, the gals at Papercut magazine, hairstylist Christi Cagle (Krop Creative), and  makeup by me (Ajentse).   I had the opportunity to test out some new products from NARS, and fell in love with a line of hair products by Rene Furterer that Christi used throughout the day.

Vivid colors seem to become much more wearable in Spring/Summer and this year they’re especially HOT!   I had the opportunity to play with lots of bold color for the  Beauty.com Spring 2011 Campaign with photographer Elke Van de Velde .  

If you’re not into bright eye shadows or don’t have time in the morning, try a bold lip!   I like a bright orange for lips and nails this year {try Stila Longwear Lip Color in Outrageous and Butter London Nail Laquer in Jaffa}.  It’s a great look for those who want to be unique and fabulous but like to sleep in.  Just be sure to add a little concealer for under eyes and bronzer to finish off the look.    

Here are the some of the must-have products I used to create the look on our model Paisha:  Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer by Juice Beauty, Primed and Poreless Primer by TooFaced, Smashbox HD Foundation and Concealer, Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion by Smashbox,  Blush in Sex Appeal by NARS , Smashbox Brow Tech To Go in Taupe,  NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Palladium, NARS Trio Eyeshadow in Okinawa, Jane Iredale PurePress Triple Eyeshadow in Sea Foam, Stila Lip and Cheek Stain in Yumberry Crush, Stila Silk Shimmer Lip Gloss in Kitten, Urban Decay 24-7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Wicked.

The Bride & Bloom Magazine :: Spring 2011 Shoot

From photgrapher Elizabeth Messina:

“this beautiful little film, takes “behind the scenes” imagery
to a whole other level…cinematographer KRISTEN* of BLISS
was completely unobtrusive & thoughtful while i created my photographs…
there is a gentle dance that takes place between artists who work side by side…
what i simply love about this BLISS piece is that it is completely & utterly
her own work of art….a delicate blend of the fashion shoot i conceptualized
(alongside a team of creatives: EDEN & ERIN SKIPLEY & FAYE DINSMORE
& JACK SNEED & LAUREN NAPIER) beautifully balanced with
moments that KRISTEN* found & created, and was able to
share her own vision through moving images…xoxo

Spring 2011 has arrived!  Here is the campaign that I worked on for Beauty.com, shot by photographer Elke Van de Velde.  Check out the latest hair and makeup trends for spring here, including a behind the scenes video of the shoot.  

Our model Elina has a perfect face for a fresh spring palette. We love peach tones for cheeks and lips, bronze skin, and a softer version of a cat-eye with neutral tones.  Of course, a bare or bright lip is also great if the occasion permits!

For hair that goes day into night, we love the top-knot, beachy waves, easy styles that look effortless

Aside from the products listed above, here is my must-have list from the shoot: 

Smooth Operator Illuminating serum by Tarte , Too Faced Primed and Poreless, Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion in Glow, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores HD Silk Micro powder,  NARS Multiple Bronzer in Palm Beach, Smashbox HD Foundation and HD Concealer, Cargo Blush in Sunset Coast, Tarte EmphasEYES HD Eye Brightening Pencil and Brow Pencil, Lip Insurance by Too Faced, Stila Longwear lip color in Coral.

The Oscar’s!!! It’s Hollywood’s most prestigious event and the top of the mountain in the Entertainment Industry.  The paparazzi, the gowns, the jewels, the security, the celebrities, the excitement of being in LA on Oscar night is overwhelming.  It was so cool to be in the mix at the Four Seasons Hotel, where I prepped Oscar Nominee Jed Rothstein and his gorgeous wife Mira Jacob for their stroll down the red carpet.  Jed was nominated for his documentaryKilling In the Name“.  It was an honor to be there and work with such inspiring people.
