Welcome to Alyson hearts faces! As of April, 2011, this site features my work/adventures as a makeup artist in Chicago.
Most recently, I met this amazing, creative duo Zivi and Kelsey (Describe the Fauna) who work in Bridgeport out of a huge, old piano warehouse. Check out their website www.describethefauna.com to see some more of their ethereal, spacious photography. We collaborated on the following fashion-y shoot; I did the hair and makeup. Our model Vernonia was awesome and fully embodies both the edgy and softer looks.
And as you peruse the pictures, see if you can hear a cello and guitar accompanying a guy and a girl singing in perfect harmony…because that’s precisely what was playing during the shoot…live! Turns out the old piano warehouse is also a practice space for bands. I was in awe. It’s times like these that I love Chicago more than anywhere. I love it for its space, its artists and its unexpected moments of striking beauty.
