Oscars 2013: Best Everything Goes to...

Jessica Chastain!

I mean, really. Everyone else should have just gone home. She is always such perfection. Hair, makeup, wardrobe, styling. And so genuinely gracious. What a talented, bona fide babe! Definitely my favorite of the night.


NYC Wedding: Ashley & Colin

All this cold winter weather has me missing summer big time! Ashley and Colin were married in a lovely East Village garden on a warm day last August. With wedding season just around the corner, and my weekends starting to fill up on my calendar, I look forward to working with more beautiful couples like this one. Ashley did her trial on the same day as their engagement photos, which is a great way to discuss makeup plans for the big day while looking your best for those photos too. A great tip for you future brides!

Happy Valentine's!

Put on some (long wear) lipstick and get to smoochin' today! Even if it's just a little peck for your pup or kitty! I've had a crazy week with New York Fashion Week bookings & shows, and will be spending today working with the lovely photographer Therese Aldgard who shot the above image during a recent shoot of ours. My man has to work tonight also. So I'll be making us a Valentine's breakfast tomorrow to celebrate instead. How are you spending the holiday?
