Aitken Jolly Photographer | Maxine Leonard Makeup

Published by at 19:26

I discovered the beauty story above one afternoon while browsing through an old issue of Wonderland Magazine with the oh so wonderful looking Zac Efron on the cover. The powerful simplicity of the makeup moved me as I studied each image over and over. Looking at the credits I discovered the makeup was done by Maxone Leonard and the photography was by Aitken Jolly. I was so moved by their work I went hunting online for more. The following are a few images I found that made me say awe, ooh, yes. Basically I loved them. I think the top ones will be my summer makeup inspiration. 

I'm not sure who did the makeup on the last two images but I loved them so much I had to include them.

The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

Published by at 19:35

My incredibly clued up friend Brett Warren has me so excited about the new Great Gatsby movie directed by Baz Lurhman. The other day we were editing images ( he's also an extremely talented photographer) and we watched the trailer too many times to mention.  As with all of Baz Lurhmans films the music stood out as a character of it's own.  After being emotionally moved by what I heard and then buying the Lana Del Rey Single Young and Beautiful I wanted more. A quick google search sent me to NPR's First Listen where you can stream the entire soundtrack produced by Jay-Z and featuring Beyonce, Will.i.am, Gotye, Florence and the Machine and Sia.  I can't stop listening. It's nothing ground breaking just fun music fit for a twenties themed over the top garden party....which I will be attending in full on twenties attire. Don't worry I'll post photos. : )
