Red My Lips....

So here is a quick teaser from a Beauty shoot I did last night with photographer: Jojo Serina. We didn't even begin this shot until after 1 am, when we were done with our photo shoot for CLOTH Hawaii.

I grabbed my Makeup Forever Pigment Palette and painted on red cream color all over my eyelids (more pics to come soon, I promise!) and with the same color, all over my lips. I finished with a cherry color lip gloss and voila! Here is what we did in the wee hours of the morning.

Don't these shiny, candy-apple red pumps look delicious enough to eat?

I heart NY, let me count the ways...

Ahh, New York. I'm so looking forward to seeing you again. To feel the wind take my hair as I zip through the city in a crazy cab, to sense the sun on my shoulders as I stroll through Central Park, to hear the sound of stilettos make their way across cobble stone roads of the Meat Packing district, and of course to ooh and ahh over the latest and greatest fashion, beauty and architecture that can only be captured in the Big Apple.

I can't wait to work and schlep around my hair and makeup kit to fabulous sets and studios. To meet glamourous and driven artists, to paint the prettiest faces and to enjoy the chicest shows and runways. I've been so incredibly inspired attending the past two September Fashion Weeks in NY, I absolutely crave being backstage, interviewing models and celebs on inner beauty, and I heart being on the hair and makeup teams of the most talented artists in the world.

Why wouldn't I want to go back to New York? This time, for a bit longer, perhaps? As I plan my fall return to the City that never sleeps, I came across this gem on Vogue Diaries and thought it would be appropriate to share it with all of you.

Until I return, I at least have to melt my heart.

I heart NY.
