The Tao Group is a entertainment company with over 20 venues in Las Vegas, New York, and Sydney (Australia). They are all very known and all extremely successful. Now they have done it again.. Creating another series of venues but this time in Los Angeles and I had the pleasure of being apart of the creation of their advertising. Here are a few photos from the shoot I did the makeup direction/makeup on.
Filip Milenkovic & Faith Picozzi
A few weeks back I was fortunate to work with them together on a shoot, where I got a first hand view of them as a badass couple. They had both been working and traveling so much that Faith lost her voice completely so Filip had to speak for her, just in a manlier version. In person they give off such a strong energy and bond-it makes sense how they look so damn good together.
Over the years the meaning and the use of the word “Love” has depreciated immensely. These days, “hate” and “jealousy” are the words that I hear more often then not. The divorce rate, crime, addiction, and depression, have all increased, while peace, happiness, nurturing, and harmony have rapidly begun to decrease. On a day like yesterday, Valentines Day, we need to recognize the origin and true meaning of love, and why it is SO important to spread it like a virus.
Oil..what a weird concept right? Whether its olive oil, coconut oil, rose oil, sunflower oil, etc-it’s still a strange greasy substance that reaps a plethora of benefits.
Did you know that oils are also a natural sunscreen? Some of which amount to 40 SPF! When I found out and looked up the facts, I was so mind blown. I mean who else grew up pouring oil onto your skin so you can fry in the sun?
It’s been over a week since my last post and for that I apologize–Seems that the vacation mode has finally tempered away from everyone, which made me a busy bee with my day job-painting faces.
There is a new kid on the block, and it’s filling everyone’s bellies in just the right way. Dirty Lemon is the new craze that has spilled all over social media with its sleek design and celebrity attention. It is a beverage similar to a tea or a tonic and now comes in 4 different formulas, all in which are created with natural ingredients to work with the body inside-out. No added sweeteners, no fake stuff, just whole elements derived from the natural ‘fruits of the earth’.
Bringing in the new year usually means to wear your most expensive dress, get your hair blown out, glam out your face, drink a lot of champagne, and dance your way into a fresh start. The whole thing sounds like The Great Gatsby until you wake up at 1 pm on January 1st feeling like pure SH*T and regretting everything..well almost everything.
I know the holidays are made for eating, drinking, making out, and dressing up. Recently I was hanging at the Galore Mag studio, and the question came up of “What types of lipsticks will last through the phases of the holidays?” So we teamed up and decided to throw a party…sort of..5 girls count as a party right?
How many of you love having long luscious lashes or perfectly bushed eyebrows? I certainly do. There is something about having long locks around your eyeballs that creates the center of your face to stand out and feel more symmetrical. These days there are so many ways to create this look: a mascara with “fibres” in it or a shit ton of mascara, temporary glue on strip lashes or individuals, lash/brow extensions, or daily serums like Latisse or GrandeLASH-MD.
This shoot was from a while ago, but I recently received the photos and all I can say is HOT DAMN. Makeup by me for the Esoteric Collection for Lillian Shalom Jewelry:

Here I am comparing two similar foundations; My favorite: DiorSkin Airflash Spray Foundation and my new favorite: Sephora Collection Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation. Both of those are a mouth full to say. I dare you to say the Dior one 5 times fast. Now try the Sephora one. TOUGH
