An Oscars Moment | Un moment Oscars

Sunday morning was TONS of fun for me!

My friend, the celebrity stylist, Colin Megaro hooked me up with two talented women who were nominees for short film at the Oscars.

Gudrun Austli (producer) and Linn-Jeanethe Kyed (writer) were recognized for a STUDENT film! Can you imagine?

The Norwegian beauties were such a treat to work with and although they didn’t walk away with a golden statue – they are forever penned in the book as legends.

There, in the ladies’ washroom of the ballroom at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, we rocked out to the Drive soundtrack whilst primping for the huge event…

Some behind the scenes action for you, my pretties!

Back in December I worked on a campaign for the GLOW Spa at the Tropicana shot by the, ever so talented and lovely, Tommy Chung. Styled by Toye Adedipe.

I’m told this baby will be played on all the in-room televisions. (Blush.)

Excited to share the images with you when they’re released… xo

Lia is a Gemini | Lia est un Gémeaux

At the end of the summer, there was a lovely short escape to the desert of Palm Springs with my beloved, our beloved friends Shelli and Chris and some really hot models.

One of them was a foxy, blonde pixie named Lia.

Getaway | Escapade

So, back at the very end of August…the day after Josh and I moved into our new abode…we drove to Palm Springs for a day and a night to spend it shooting with our friends Shelli and Chris [and a pack of super hot models].

There was a ton of laughter…

And cute boys…

Here’s a little somfin’-somfin’ for you ladies…

For Katie and Other Producers | Pour Katie at Les Autres Producteurs

Though I would indubitably want to be hired to paint faces on every [(high) paying] project thrown my way – I only own one set of two hands. Alas, nobody’s perfect.

On jobs where my presence is attained but not obtained, I have my humble recommendations for producers who double up as makeup/hair artists and are smart enough to come ready for anything:

  • Translucent Powder is of optimum importance as nobody wants to be immortalized on screen as a sweaty, shiny mess. My favourite is Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder.

  • Tissue Paper should always be on hand to wipe up snot rockets and pat down sweaty brows and noses.
  • Hairspray can not only rid unruly wisps of hair-in-the-face but can double up as an eyebrow tamer when used along with clean mascara spoolies [most beauty stores sell these]. I like Bumble & Bumble Classic Hairspray in travel size. This formula doesn’t weigh down hair, works great on any texture, and smells yums.

  • Lipgloss for women and Chap Stick for men and children – clear lipgloss can spruce up any face and lessen worry of dry, bleeding lips. Big fan of Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream which can also be used on dry skin anywhere on the body, especially important for gestures by hands with ashy cuticles.

  • Concealer for blemishes or discoloration of the skin and dark under eye circles. My new favourite saviour is Joe Blasco’s Red Away which is also waterproof thus fantastic for waterworks.


  • Beauty Blender Sponges are great to get rid of any foundation or powder streaking on the face of your victims. You can buy them with a cleanser that will prolong the life of your sponges up to seven months. [They come with super simple instructions for both applying and cleaning.]


  • Wet Wipes – for when you have to take everything off! Though I prefer Korres Pomegranate Wipes, simple unscented baby wipes will do.

  • Brushes are also a good idea – www.crownbrush.com has a really great selection of travel brush kits!


After all that you’ll need a pretty carrying case. 🙂
