Behind the Scenes: My Shoot with P&G & Street Peeper

October 24, 2012

Last week I shared the photo shoot I did with P&G beauty and Phil Oh of Street Peeper, and today I bring you the details of my beauty look!

As I’ve said before, I normally don’t like getting my hair and makeup done because I feel like I look like the drag queen version of myself, but I absolutely loved what Jake Bailey did. In fact, something that was cut from this video was after I asked Jake how I could recreate the look for everyday wear he said “I personally think you could wear this all the time.” And you know what? He’s got a point.

Does this mean I’m going to vamp up my beauty routine? Unlikely. But it’s certainly changed the way I feel about wearing tons of makeup!

A Week in Review

I think if you were to go back to around this time last year I would be writing the same exact thing. Holy Fashion Week prep and I’m not ready at all. My apartment is a mess, I haven’t taken my clothes to the cleaners, and I probably should have started that whole diet thing a few weeks ago. Oops!

I realized last night that I’m about to head into my 11th season of Fashion Week, which is pretty nuts and also really awesome. Dreams do come true kids. And while I should probably be “preparing” this weekend, I’ve decided to leave it all for Monday and enjoy my last few days of socializing before I go completely off the radar. Here’s to the last weekend of summer!

Behind the Scenes with Revlon

I have some very exciting news to share with all of you that I’ve had to keep tippy top secret until now! Earlier this week I headed into the studio with Glamour and Revlon (!!) to shoot an advertisement that will come out in October!

Makeup artist Claire Bayley gave me an amazing cat eye (how fitting, right?!) and orangey red stained lips, while hair stylist Greg Bitterman emphasized my natural waves by taming out the gross frizz that comes with this season’s humidity. Then it was onto the set with the amazing photographer Sarah Silver who not only made me totally comfortable in front of the camera (sometimes I get nervous) but she also had me meowing and hissing in between shots. Purr-fect! I also went outside with street style photographer, Patrick Butler, but since it was raining we got to hide out in this cool furniture store while simultaneously doing some shopping! Suffice it to say - I had an amazing time!

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the day. A huge thank you to Glamour, Revlon, and the entire team for covering up my pimple and making this one of the funnest days yet!

I call this the Louis XIV meets Marilyn Monroe

After shoot treat!
