'Style Express' - Flare Magazine, September '11

I've been getting a lot of great feedback on this story and lots of praise for the 'amazing makeup' but to be honest, I didn't really do that much. Sparkles on the eyes, red gloss on the lips and a whole lot of K-Y Jelly on the body. That's it. No foundation, no concealer and obviously, no powder or contour.

As a pro artist, I know what I need to do to get the desired look and as I've been known to say, 'I'm not charging by the pound'. Sometimes, less is more.

Sure there are some clients that we have to 'embellish' for but thankfully Flare isn't one of them. In fact, this entire shoot was super laid back. Chris Nicholls, his two man crew, Fashion Director Liz Cabral, our model Naro and I were the only ones on set and we were done in 6 hours.

Now if only ALL shoots could yield such spectacular results for little to no stress!
