Kate Moss for YSL

I recently came upon this rare commercial clip from 1994 – Kate Moss for YSL’s Opium fragrance, directed by the great Satoshi Saikusa. The extremely talented and demanding cinematographer – the late Jean-Yves Escoffier – checked every eyelash, every molecule of makeup. He drove me crazy…and made me a better makeup artist.

At […]

Lena Dunham’s Twiggy Makeup

My last on blog on Sixties makeup really hit the pulse of the Next New Thing. Not only are Twiggy references popping up here and there, but I am now on my fourth shoot with that very theme. Looks like the fashion in Spring 2013 is rich in vivid colors, geometric shapes, fun […]

A <i>Sixties</i> look?  Sure, which one?

On a recent shoot for the cover of one of my favorite magazines, a publication that is the legitimate authority on beauty, I had the pleasure of working with an absolute dream team: an über-famous and accomplished hair stylist, a photographer known for his impeccable taste and gorgeous light, and an iconic editor who’s knowledge […]

Glam Girls for Vanity Fair

So here it is, my pride and joy, the one cover that had eluded me until now: the prestigious Vanity Fair with a few of my favorite ladies – in bed together!

Truth be told, a booking like this can be quite daunting since there might be a lot of studio and celebrity politics involved. […]

Cindy Crawford’s Meaningful Beauty

The first time I met Cindy was in 1986 on a trip to St Barths for Vogue Paris with Patrick Demarchelier. I was struck not only by how absolutely stunning but also how confident and poised she was for her 19 years. She had not reached the status of supermodel yet, but had […]

Sixty is the New Forty

As a woman matures, looking attractive, feminine, and seductive is never out of reach, but it can no longer be achieved with the same long hair, bandeau tops, short skirts and glazed lips as in the party days. Clinging for dear life to one’s youth is about as futile as stopping the seasons from […]

The Art of Eyeliner

This shot is my favorite shot of the moment: Mila Kunis for the current issue of Glamour UK. She made me think of Jean Shrimpton with her sweet face and those huge eyes, so I did a 60-ish inspired eyeliner, which turned out just the way I wanted – sweet but sexy and amazingly […]

Glamour Past and Present

Why, oh why is the notion of beauty and glamour so hard to keep current? Why is the default mode always a reference to some tacky TV show from the 80’s? I just received an invitation to attend a trade show for Cosmetics and Beauty and the poster looks like an image from […]

Impossibly Beautiful?

For years, sociologists, moms and therapists have been blaming magazines and advertisers for communicating to young women an impossibly high standard of beauty that makes normal mortals feel inadequate.

One brand has been watching and marketing to match. Make Up For Ever has launched a new campaign for their “HD Makeup” which cleverly stirs […]

Jane Fonda

So the Golden Globes came and went and gave all the commentators and taste-makers the opportunity to rate the stars and their efforts to live up to the public’s expectations. With a few exceptions it was pretty much business as usual. However I was struck by how elegant, current and beautiful Jane Fonda […]
