The infamous and always beautiful Joan Smalls

I have always loved working with darker skin tones and in past years worked on many projects with musicians and even more recently a great website #DooBop which caters in beauty products for woman of color. When I got the phone call that I was doing the cover of iD with Joan Smalls I was super excited ,a true beauty and a great girl we had two fun days working in her hood Williamsburg and this is a quick shot i took in the van while we were waiting to change her into her first look, styled by the gorgeous and talented #ClaireRichardson, shot by #MattJones .

As you can see the make up was fairly minimal but we strengthened her brows using my fave go to #browperfector by Nars and evened out her skin tones using Nars Radianat creme foundations, and added some highlights to the skin with Multiple sticks also by Nars #southbeach and #NaPali Coast and use some gorgeous creme shadows on the eyes by #RMS ,#SOLAR and #SEDUCE  and blended with a touch of both eyeshadow duo's by Nars #Surabaya and #Brousse.
