Shooting Daze: With Lacey Claire

Behind The Scenes from a very recent shoot with Lacey Claire (@thelaceyclaire) from the most recent (and last) season of America's Next Top Model.  
Hair by Sylvia Stankowski (@sjshairdesign) - Styling @brando.fshnstylist

To say the least, shooting with Lacey was a delight, and not just because of her kick ass modeling skill. At only 18, Lacey exudes a mature confidence and down to earth attitude. No wonder my parents absolutely loved her on ATTM and asked TOLD me to tell her that they thought she should have won and that she was their favorite!  At hearing this, Lacey laughed and told me to tell them she sincerely was thankful. 

First Look of the day

Starting out the day with a glowing complexion, 
soft pink blush and lips, and a super soft brown smokey eye. 
- Used a mix of both the RCMA Foundation Palette and 
L'Oreal Telescopic Lumi Foundation for Lacey's skin. 
- For Concealer I used MACs Studio Conceal and Correct Palette in Light, 
setting with Ben Nye's Cameo Loose Powder.
A touch of Anastasia Beverly Hills Starlight Illuminator down the center 
of the face and on the cheek bones. 
A.B.H. Contour Kit for contouring and bronzing. 
Benefit Sugarbomb Blush for a soft flush of pink to the apples. 
- Brows are Anastasia Beverly Hills Duo Powder in Soft Brown, combed out with Clear Brow Gel.
 I've been really into natural, combed out brows lately. 
I find it more "real" and beautiful then those sharply shaped out drawn in lookin' brows.
On the Eyes, Anastasia Beverly Hills New Single Fall Eyeshadows in Lace, Chocolate Crumble, Belize, ad Fudge as the liner. 
Rimmel Mascara (since she had such long lashes, falsies were unnecessary) 
The lip is a combination of Kosas Cosmetics lipstick in Undone and RoseWater. 

Right in the beginning!!

Bumped up this look for a little more glamorous feel.
Added some Plum Smoke eyeshadow to smoke out the eye. Also added 
some Soft Gold eyeshadow to the tear duct, making the eyes seem brighter.  
I added some ABH Lip Gloss in Metallic Rose to the lips. 
Becca Cosmetics Moonstone highlight for a wonderful glow. 

I absolutely LOVED the darker lip looks we did! 
This one in particular made me think of her as a Modern Day Snow White.
Lip is Kosas Cosmetics lipstick in Fringe. 

The entire day was full of chic outfits and countless hair/makeup changes.
Working on a shoot like this one reminds me of why I love my job in the first place. 
Syncing with other creative individuals to make an editorial story. 
I just love it! And I cannot wait to see the final outcome.
