    This time of year there are so many opportunities to bump up the shine, add a cat-eye, get vampy…  I love the holidays! The Bellevue Collection showcases the creme de la creme of luxury brands, and curates their favorite products and looks for the season in Be Magazine.  I’m excited to share my favorite shots from this gorgeous advertorial + cover. Our model Polina was a dream, our crew was made up of my favorite A-list Seattlite/(Los)Angelinos.  I LOVED this shoot.  See the full story here. Shot by Alvin Nguyen, styled by Alvin Stillwell, hair and makeup by me!

    Vivid colors seem to become much more wearable in Spring/Summer and this year they’re especially HOT!   I had the opportunity to play with lots of bold color for the Spring 2011 Campaign with photographer Elke Van de Velde .  

    If you’re not into bright eye shadows or don’t have time in the morning, try a bold lip!   I like a bright orange for lips and nails this year {try Stila Longwear Lip Color in Outrageous and Butter London Nail Laquer in Jaffa}.  It’s a great look for those who want to be unique and fabulous but like to sleep in.  Just be sure to add a little concealer for under eyes and bronzer to finish off the look.    

    Here are the some of the must-have products I used to create the look on our model Paisha:  Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer by Juice Beauty, Primed and Poreless Primer by TooFaced, Smashbox HD Foundation and Concealer, Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion by Smashbox,  Blush in Sex Appeal by NARS , Smashbox Brow Tech To Go in Taupe,  NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Palladium, NARS Trio Eyeshadow in Okinawa, Jane Iredale PurePress Triple Eyeshadow in Sea Foam, Stila Lip and Cheek Stain in Yumberry Crush, Stila Silk Shimmer Lip Gloss in Kitten, Urban Decay 24-7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Wicked.
