A Stable Life- LUCA Magazine

I just can't believe how quickly 2016 is wrapping up! We did this shoot for the Winter Issue of LUCA Magazine back in September and if you can believe it, winter is already here and you can pick up your copy at any Barnes and Noble nationwide! As usual it's always a pleasure to work with Jennifer, Cece, and the amazing LUCA crew! It was also so great meeting Michelle and Megan. This was one of the best days I've had at work all year! The look was all about natural brows, flush glowing skin, cold rosy cheeks, and love bitten lips. We kept the hair very polished for some images, yet free and careless for others. Serving you a little bit of everything this season. To see the full Fashion Editoral, and all the images check out LUCAmagazine.com.

Currently Coveting: Cleansers

I love cleansers, but washing your face every night can be quite a chore.  These are 3 effortless cleansers that have done wonders for my skin this year.

 Steal: only $12 at Ulta. I just discovered this while traveling in April. My makeup remover spilled in my luggage and I was in a small town with a single cosmetics store. The store representative recommended this. I did not think it was going to work, but figured it wasn't expensive and therefore could dispose of it after the trip. I ended up taking it home, I was so impressed! This has become my favorite makeup remover. It's melts everything off in seconds. This is also amazing for contact lens users, it never burns your eyes and quickly erases any waterproof eye makeup. I've really appreciated the extra hydration as well.

 Steal: only $15 at Ulta. Picked up with the oil cleanser above. This is simply the best scrub I've ever tried. I can't believe it's only $15! Even through it says microdermabrasion, it is still gentle enough for daily use. This has been my saving grace during pregnancy. It instantly brightens my skin after use! I've also noticed it reduce the hyper pigmentation baby has been giving me, so generously... and hormonal acne doesn't stand a chance when I use this every night.

 Splurge: $110, I order it from Keiko, an Omorovicza Skincare Specialist at (602)739-6063. This is the best of both worlds and then some. It effortlessly removes makeup as quickly as an oil cleanser, and it also exfoliates to brighten and perfect skin. It has a rare Hungarian mud in it that is so nurturing and detoxifying. I've been a cult follower of this product and brand for 2 years now. The results speak for themselves. Call Keiko for a free sample.

Luca Magazine, Fall Issue 2016

"The Timeless Train Traveler"

Photography Isaac Bailey, Styling Jennifer O'Bannon, Hair Christin Roberts, Makeup Rumur Stamps, and Model Haylee Elmore FORD/RBA

I had so much fun working on this feature! I love this magazine. It is a great example to teens and young women. They don't photoshop like most magazines, so these young girls have realistic images and no false expectations. I can't wait to work with Luca Magazine again!

Products used:

I applied Giorgio Armani's Crema Nuda foundation on Haylee in shade #2, "light glow." Laura Mercier Crème Contour Palette. Anastasia Pro Brow Palette. I used two cream blushes, one by Tom Ford in shade, "Pink Sand" and the other was Laura Mercier's infamous "Rosebud." Giorgio Armani Eye Tints in shades #12, 9, and 10. The lipsticks changed three times, Rouge Ecstasy in shade 301 and Lip Maestro shades 503, and 400. I finished the look with two coats of "Eyes To KIll" Mascara in black, waterproof.
