Behind the Scenes for the Organic Spa Magazine Fall Issue

Everyone knows how beautiful Organic Spa Magazine is on the newsstands. What most people don’t understand is what a great deal of effort goes into creating something that looks effortless. Yesterday we shot five models for the upcoming Fall fashion and beauty issue. Just wanted to share with you yesterday’s behind the scene footage .

The beauty story was inspired by the simplicity of nature. Each season in nature usually has colors that are prominent . The hair stylist and myself thought we would challenge ourselves and use the same products on all our models. The models had completely differently skin tones, and features. As the makeup artist I chose to use greens, browns and corals as my color pallet. It’s amazing how each girl looked completely different even though I used the exact same products. Marque, the hair stylist, chose to use products that made the hair light, shiny and breezy; very reminiscent of fall. Here are some of the products that made the cut.


1- John Masters Sea Mist Sea Salt with Lavender
2-  Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp and Tamanu Strengthen & Grow Moisturizing Gel
3-  Intelligent Nutrients Hair Shine-
4- Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer
5-Mineral Fusion Face Primer
6-Gabriel Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Moca
7- ZuZu Luxe Eyeliner in Iguana
8- ZuZu Luxe Blush in Sunset
9- ZuZu Luxe Eye Shadow in Casino
10-Gabriel Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Bisque
11- Gabriel mascara in Black
