BEAUTY: Spring Forward With Your Makeup

Read Issue 

Here in New York Metro Area we have been experiencing gorgeous spring weather. So it was easy to get in the mood the day of the photo shoot. When CeCi Johnson, Founder of CeCi New York text me that she wanted me to be a part of  CeCiStyle Magazine spring shoot I was elated. Spring, is one of my favorites seasons, beautiful weather and bloomed flowers; some of my favorites are tulips, bleeding hearts, anthurium, and alpinia purpurata.

CeCi managed once again to put together an amazing team of women to create the look. One of my bestie Melissa Paldino worked on hair, Helga Schaefer was the amazing photographer, and her assistant was a twitter friend that I finally got a chance to meet in work with, Andrea Langer.

 Luv This shot Andrea!!!
