hair and makeup



Since I'm completely obsessive and like to do a lot of research, I compiled these images before my photo shoot and made collages of them.  I was planning on sharing my inspiration with a hairstylist/makeup artist, but in the end I couldn't find one that would work for cheap and/or free on a weekday.  We ended up kind of winging it on the hair and makeup front, which wouldn't have been so bad if it hadn't been so darn windy the day of the shoot.  Lucky for me, last night I met a freelance hair and makeup person at Joe's birthday get-together who I plan on using for my next shoot.

For makeup, Glenn and I put our heads together and ended up using Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer under Glenn's own foundation (trying for a matte look), Stila Convertible Color in Gerbera for cheeks (such a pretty peachy blush), and (saving the best for last) Nars lipstick in Heatwave.  Heatwave is a semi-matte orange red, and it is bright bright bright.  I love it.

I'm having trouble remembering where I sourced all of these images, but I do know that I got some of them from Lieke Roomijs' photostream, some of them from Refinery29, some from past Toast catalogs, and some from the look books of Keller and Alyson Fox's A Small Collection.

Gorgeous.... I try and try to make my hair take a wave, but straight it goes. That's ok.. It's finally gotten pretty long. I was falling in love with the auburny brown/blond pictures, until I saw Freja, who is my favorite model face out there.... She reminds me to enjoy my dark brown tresses.

Pretty pictures. Soooo, when (and do) we get to see yours? Hehe.

Love this! The braids are surprisingly easy, and beyond obsessed with the coral-red lipstick. Just found an amazing one at the drugstore during my last trip... xxSAS
