I got to work with Brooke Shields last fall. She made an appearance in Dallas as part of the Brinker Lecture Series which raises money for The Dallas Center for Performing Arts. No pressure putting makeup on an ex-model and face that is recognized worldwide. A face that I grew up with from childhood. Brooke is still just as beautiful today and one of the few women I have seen who looks equally good in person or in front of the camera. And she's a sweetheart. Basically she just said keep in light and fresh and let me do my thing. Only the real pros do that. Thank you Brooke. And thank you Gary Cogill for asking for makeup.

Yesterday I went to the Hyatt Reunion to do makeup for real estate wizard Barbara Corcoran. I have to say the NY Times said it exactly right, "Her manner is frank and energetic, but for all her drive,she has no airs." That was my experience of Barbara Corcoran. How can you not like a woman who writes a book titled, If You Don't Have Big Breasts Put Ribbons On Your Pigtails? I hope I will cross paths with her again. Working with people like Barbara is one of the reasons I love my job.

These photos are from my first referral listing in Paper City's Little Blue Book for Brides, 2009. I love these production photos taken by F8 Studio at the Melrose Hotel, April 4, 2009.

Believe it or not I've worked with many brides the day of their wedding and I've never laid eyes on them before. Never done their makeup or hair, ie. no consultation or trial run. Marta was one of these brides. She looked at my website, we exchanged a couple of emails and booked the date.
She came to me with a clean face and some magazine tears with ideas how she would like to wear her hair and makeup. An hour and half later, I give her the mirror for final approval and she says, " Perfect!" She emailed me this image by josephmarkphotography.com
Brianna was great to work with. She told me she wanted to be airbrushed and that she loved makeup - so “don't hold back!” The color composition of this photo by Jenny Martell is just beautiful. A successful collaboration.
