Residuum, the indie film by Edward Pioke which I worked on as key hair/makeup, just premiered at the Music Box in Chicago. The film, shot in 2012 in and around Chicago, features a stellar Chicago cast and crew. It was such an awesome experience to see the film on the big screen. The magic of cinema is like no other; it’s inspiring to see what beauty can transpire when so many talents come together. Bravo, Residuum!

Here’s a few headshots of the awesome public speaking coach Marianna Swallow (www.mariannaswallow.com). I worked hair/makeup on this shoot with photographer Johnny Knight. I think these shots really capture Marianna; she’s sharp, personable, with a great sense of humor and it shows. Great work Marianna and Johnny!

Being on the radio is a hoot! I had the honor of being on Jen Bosworth’s first show on WGN Radio as a Beauty Expert. We talked about all things beauty: iconic women of beauty, ways to achieve beauty inside and out and celebrating your individual beauty. Here’s an excerpt: http://wgnradio.com/2015/02/11/jen-bosworth-hour-3/

This was a shoot that I did hair/makeup on for Whole Foods Bakery with Johnny Knight. It was such a fun shoot! Whole Foods used real bakers for the shoot and we got to go behind the scenes in a real Whole Foods kitchen to see how all those delicious goodies get made. The makeup for this was very natural (the bakers usually do not wear makeup when they’re in action) and I always love executing these soft looks.

Here’s a few screen shots from a shoot I worked makeup on with the fabulous duo Wittefini at their studio space. We shot two looks with aspiring model DeYandre, one natural and one a bit more glam. It was such a fun collaboration and I cannot wait to see the pro pics!
