shooting with Christy out in the Hamptons

Had such a fun day shooting with this lady at her lovely home in the Hamptons for Violet magazine , a British mag featuring women and this lady as we know is one exceptional woman !

Christy you all know as a very successful model ,starting her career at the young age of 14 . I have had the pleasure of working with this amazing lady for 3 years now while she promotes and discusses the issues of child birth and pre natal and maternal health both in the USA and developing  countries through her organization Every Mother Counts . Christy founded this back in 2010 after going through a very complicated and painful birth herself .


we shot Christy in some rather couture looking dresses , so we decided to keep her make up more on the natural side to counter balance the glamour . Walking barefoot through her gardens we created a sheer skin , and dewy iridescent quality and a sheer lip , just lining the eyes in the lash line with a little black liner , to create a little drama , I call this my secret line because it makes the eyes  pop , however is invisible to the eye .


we used on Christy...

Kat Burki spray Elixor and Vit C cream to prep the skin .

Nars radiant glow tinted moisturizer to even out skin and cover and slight blemishes ,even though Christy has amazing skin , it just creates a slight perfection .

under eyes and around nose i use a little of the RMS 'un cover ' amazing concealer with coconut oil so its light and sheer .

Mac creme liner in lash line above , RMS creme eye polish in 'Magnetic'  on lid blended so just a hint of color .


Josie Moran argan oil black mascara 

Nars multiple stick in ,South Beach and Orgasm , mixed together and blended.

very lightly powder the center and cheek bones with Laura Mercier sheer perfecting powder in Candleglow 


lips sheer lipstick in a mix of Dolce Vita and Tolede .
