This week's Podcast - The Red Lip / by Kat St. John

This week we released another podcast full of JUICY, historical facts about Red Lipstick. Such a rich history and power comes from the color red.

Speaking of Power - Check out this shot of our client from a Personal Branding shoot I styled for our Client Aga’s new business with Amy Catherine Photography!

Aga was a wonderful client I have worked with a few times. First, a personal stylist for a photoshoot with Amy a few years ago. Then shortly after our first shoot, Aga signed up for an in-home lesson on how to do a quick 10 minute makeup routine. This time, for Aga’s Personal Branding shoot to launch her new journey as a Life Coach. Remember the Big snow storm we had in February? We had a few weeks of cold, bitter weather and had to cancel this shoot twice! We had a beautiful weekend of warm weather, the snow melted. Spring was here! Then……we woke up on the day of the shoot to a fresh new blanket of snow.

Amy is such an amazing photographer (plus, Aga’s house is just gorgeous) the shoot was just going to happen. For the styling; Aga chose a bright lip. I love when clients choose a pop of color with subdued hues and clean styling.

As you can see, Aga has perfect skin. Since we weren’t sure if we were shooting outside in the wet weather, I decided to just go ahead and airbrush her. Airbrush is my go-to for work like this! For her lips, we went with NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in “Lesbos” - the perfect Red for Aga’s branding photos. Just enough pop to match that spunky

attitude. Her style is just so effortless and cool!
