As a make up artist, I get a little bummed out when I show up to an editorial style shoot and I am directed to do 'soft and light' natural make up. While at the same time, as a make up artist I have a total respect for doing natural make up and bring every ounce of of talent I have to the task. It is almost more important to get exactly right than some crazy smokey or winged cat eye. These are photos of the incredible Hannah Duggan taken by Aminda Villa. They were published last fall in Lone Wolf Magazine. I was thrilled to be a part of this collaboration and it was the first time I met the darling Aminda. She was sure to become my new best friend, but like all the talented ones do, she is leaving Minneapolis for LA this fall. So, I'll just have to make my way to the west coast to keep our bff status pending. sigh...
