Best memory from your first ever photoshoot.
This is hilarious! I was 13, and was shooting a campaign with my older sister, AnnaLynne at the Chateau Elan in Georgia, near the towns where I grew up. After a few hours in hair and makeup, we were STARVING! They hadn’t provided Kraft Services (which is basically the industry term for food), but I found a beautiful plate of bread and grapes…we were soooo happy! We immediately started eating and just as we were finishing up, the creative director entered the room to pull us on set, and started freaking out asking, “Oh my gosh!!! Who ate the props!?!” That was so awkward!!!! 🙂
Your morning beauty ritual before a photoshoot? Your haircare routine?
I need great music, a cozy robe, and clean face. I start with a bath, using one of my favorite brands, Copper + Crane. Their products smell so good they literally make my bathroom like a garden. Then, if I’m doing my own glam, I blow-dry my hair and put it in three, stacked sections. I take the first section, on the top of my head, and twirl it around into a knot and pin it with bobby pins. I repeat this down the center of my scalp, until I have three knots. This makes it look like a fresh blowout. I spray hairspray and then move to my face.
I have to start with a clean face, so after washing and toning, I add a serum, moisturizer Jojoba wax and spray a little Skindinavia on as a primer. If I am going to be on camera I focus on the eyes. Depending on your eye shape, there are many eyeliner tricks to help open them up more. Find a beauty tutorial by someone with a similar lid. It will make all the difference in your photos!
If I am just doing meetings and work, I keep a lazy girl glam routine of concealer, bronzer, eyebrows, and mascara. Easy and quick!
After a long hard-working day, you relax with?
I LOVE couch time with my puppies, Giggles and Munchkin and my epic husband, Rick! We talk, have dinner, watch movies or binge on shows…it is literally my favorite thing! I also LOVE heading to Malibu or Marina to ride Birds and eat Hot Dog on a Stick (it is soooo good!) at the Santa Monica pier with my sisters.
