Metal Kult did a write up about the Nachtmystium video shoot I did special FX makeup for!  See it for yourself at:


If I had the money to invest in these two designers I would.  There collections just keep getting better and better.  I went for an egyptian inspired look for the hair and makeup.  Lots of browns, black, red burgundy, mustard, nude, navy, and sand like colors in this collection.  So inspiring.  I hope one day to own some of these pieces...To see their line click here

Witch Shoot

I worked with photographer Angela Boatwright for this shoot, entitled "Witch".  I did makeup only.  Here's a shot I took:

And here are some of the final images:

Stylist: Jessie Cohen
Hair: Song Hee
Talent: Mariel at Ford


Shapeshiftr has some really amazing designs and I was psyched to work with the two founders/designers Meghan Lavery and J'aime Lizotte to create hair/makeup for their winter lookbook.  All their designs are influenced by geometry with different textures and lots of layering. 
Check out their Spring/Summer 2010 collection:          

Nina Sky Shoot

Thursday I paired up with editor Hana May Feldman of Hearty Magazine for a shoot with the musical duo Nina Sky. These identical twins were amazing to work with! Special thanks to Hana for making this happen and The Chop Shop in Chinatown for allowing us to shoot out of their shop!!!

Nachtmystium Music Video Shoot

Recently I did all the Special FX makeup on the Nachtmystium Music Video "Every Last Drop"
It was an amazing project and the cast and crew both ruled!
We did a time lapsed shot of a decaying body, she laid there for three hours without moving.  I had to keep adding more and more peeling flesh.  It was sick.
The video should be out in September, keep an eye out for it.
Big thanks to Jimmy @ Guitar World for bringing me on to be a part of this!
