Once you start shooting models simple things become a big deal.  Take great eyelashes for example. Great full bottom lashes are especially hard to come by and Andi has them to spare.  Andi’s a great test model because she can do her own makeup.  She definitely has a preference on how she wears her hair […]

Yes, please do.  You hear that on the set a bit when working with a makeup artist.  We shot this yesterday at my workshop.  I was working with Debbie Darakdjian for the first time, poor girl she didn’t know what hit her.  While jumping in I liked what I saw and asked her to take […]
