All about Fergie

It’s out! My cover and inside story with Fergie in the December 2009 issue of Cosmopolitan.

I have had the great pleasure of working with her on a few occasions, and not only am I a fan of hers as a musical artist but also as a person: she is über-cool, smart and funny as well as confident, relaxed and an incredible team player.

When I last saw her on a shoot for Allure, her hair was a mix of blonde and caramel shades, and her spectacular body was tan and toned. Since she was going to be photographed that time in bathing suits, it made sense to create a makeup that was based on warm shades of copper and rich golds.

But, this time her hair was quite a bit darker and I saw the opportunity to accentuate the sultry, mysterious side of Fergie while keeping her youthful glow.

For Cosmo’s inside pictures – where there is more creative leeway – I gave the eyes some drama with extra lashes, dark liner and cream eye shadow – but I kept the skin radiant and rosy.

There were plenty of options for the lip color since Fergie looks great in nudes, but because of the darkness of the hair I chose a subtle pink to brighten up the face. I feel that a beige nude would have made the look too drab.

Hope you agree with me: she looks Fergalicious!

Can’t wait to see her in the movie that has great glam potential: Nine.
