Dawn was a dream client in every way–she was trusting, she just let folks do their job–and this makeup artist so appreciated the trust. Not because I got to go crazy but having the celebrity trust you enough to just let you do your job is a luxury. Of course we discussed what she was looking for and her preferences but in the end it was a lovely collaboration between celebrity and artist and she loved it. Dawn loved the bronze lip I gave her using Make Up Forever’s aqua cream in color #15. Along with the fab lip was big lashes (of course) and serious contouring to catch the lights. For the highlight I used Face Ateliers shimmer in gold bullion. Because the photographer Sarah McCologan was using colored blue gels-which changes the overall look of the photo the emphasis on the makeup wasn’t about color but depth/contouring, proper makeup placement.
The surprise of the day were her parents dropping by to see their wonderful child at work. Two very proud and very supportive parents sat back and couldn’t help but beam about Dawn, and Dawn had nothing but sincere pride for her parents. They are survivors of Katerina and that should tell you how strong of a family they are. Her parents are two amazing and loving people who raised a dynamic, strong, beautiful and gifted child

If there is such a thing as a beat-down in styling then Ugo did just that
