ABC’s 20/20 Saturday, Aug 21 2010 

I am so excited to announce that the nationally televised episode of ABC’s 20/20 that I did makeup and hair on aired last night. It was such a surreal experience.

The interview was done by anchor JuJu Chang and was on Melissa Moore, author and daughter of the happy face killer. Melissa has written a book on her experience and really has a heart to reach out and help others who are family members of serial killers. She is an incredibly brave and inspiring woman.

The shoot itself was a lot of fun. I got there and got to meet Melissa’s mom and her husband and did makeup on both of them for the interview as well. I was super excited to meet Good Morning America’s JuJu Chang, who is a really cool lady. We ended up having some time after lunch and we went shopping in downtown PDX. It was nice to get to know her on a more personal level.

We ended the shoot at a diner in Vancouver WA where the producer bought us all rootbear floats and onion rings. My kind of guy! 🙂

All in all, it was a fabulous learning experience and I feel incredibly blessed to have been a part of it. I truly love my job!

Leverage’s Parker on Tour Friday, Jul 16 2010 

A fellow makeup artist sent me this today. I haven’t even had time to really look for any of these. It seems I have been running and working ever since I did Beth’s Riesgraf’s hair and makeup for her Electronic Media Tour. I love the clips they included to show the depth and breadth of her character on the show. Parker is indeed my fave so I was delighted to get to do “Parker’s” hair and makeup for this job.

Enjoy the clip!

The lovely and funny Beth Riesgraf Saturday, Jun 19 2010 

This week had a fun and unexpected surprise.  I got to break up the makeup monotony a bit and was contacted from TNT directly to do hair and makeup on Beth Riesgraf, one of the lead actresses on “Leverage.”  I was super excited when they asked me to do this as I had been on the show as an extra on 3 separate occasions and Beth had always been my “favorite” actress on the show.

Call time was 4 am so I left the house at 3 am full of eager anticipation.  Beth and I met formally at 4:15 and after working out a few kinks, we got a rhythm and we got Beth ready.  She had a cool outfit that truly reflected “Parker”, the character that Beth plays on the show.  Here is a clip from one of the many interviews Beth and fellow actor, Timothy Hutton did together this day.  This was towards the end so we were all a little more slap happy and giggly!  🙂

I feel very fortunate that I was able to have this opportunity and I enjoyed the experience immensely.  A special thank you to M’chel Bauxal-Gleason who referred me for this job. I am forever grateful to you!!!! 🙂

Glamorous model and makeup Wednesday, Jun 2 2010 

I finally got some images from a shoot I did a few months ago. I was excited to work with photographer Dustin Rowley and one of my favorite models, Morayma. We had styling done by the owner of the Gilded Closet and there was a hair stylist there which I always appreciate. 🙂

I had fun with this shoot as I got to play and do a little bit more glamorous makeup.   I tend to only get to do beauty makeup so I always appreciate the chance to stretch myself and do something new or different.

Here are a few shots…

A few of these will be used in a charity event for Wyden and Kennedy in July. I’m pretty excited to be featured in that!

A 2nd shoot – more beauty – was just done and images are forthcoming!!!!

Joel Bechtolt the best web designer in Portland! Friday, Mar 19 2010 

A year and a half ago I decided I needed a new web site. My Blush site had been made by some clever kids at Cal but with all the changes I was making with my company, I thought it needed a new “face.”

I had worked with a web guy briefly during my time at an agency and I had remembered how helpful and nice the guy was. I had his card buried somewhere in my desk and went on a hunt to find it again. Luckily it was readily available…. Joel Bechtolt was his name. (macpdx@gmail.com)
Joel Bechtolt on Twitter
Joel Bechtolt Blog

I contacted Joel and we begun discussing ideas for both sites. I ended up only being able to change one site but I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED what Joel did. He created the perfect web site for Blush Premier Makeup Artists. The intro video is beautiful! 🙂

The best part… Joel spent a better part of an afternoon training me on how to be able to make changes on my own site. That was worth every penny I spent plus some! I could now add, delete, rearrange, and change content without having to contact a designer and then wait.

The next best part… Joel has been available EVERY time I have had a question or concern or a glitch or simple user error on my web site. I needed to make a big change today and I was struggling with it. I emailed him and he tried to walk a very computer unsavvy girl through the process and ended up having me stop by so that he could do it like 2 seconds. He’s a dream to work with and I can’t imagine a better web designer in Portland.

If anyone needs a new web site or a spruce up, Joel Bechtolt is the way to go. He’s simply amazing and incredible to work with!!!

Terri Lodge of Blush Premier on Nationally Televised Better TV Friday, Mar 12 2010 

So, a year and half ago (assuming by the hair cut I’m sporting), my friend and tv personality Nicolle Camarata asked me to do another segment for nationally televised Better TV. Nicolle had a local spot on the show and she wanted to show viewers a new way of doing eye makeup for going out. I loved how she wanted to celebrate the silver screen icons with their “bedroom eyes” so we focused on more of a soft smoky eye.

Nicolle and I always had so much fun doing these segments together. I was sad to hear that Better was cutting costs and moving the show to NY only.

Today Nicolle surprised me by posting this on my facebook wall. I was delighted since I don’t have any of the 3 segments on disc. Yay!!! 🙂

Enjoy “Bedroom Eyes”!

Oracle and a rad music video Tuesday, Mar 9 2010 

I got the pleasure of working on another music video a month or so ago. It was for a band called Oracle. I had never Orianna Hermann but she is a good friend of mine, actress Katie O’Grady. James Westby was going to be directing Oracle’s music video and @Large video’s Heather Harlow and Katie O’Grady were producing the video. An all star cast destined for greatness… I had to do it! 😉

Drumroll please… here is Oracle’s video for wake!

Wake by Oracle

I’m delighted with how it turned out. I used hair extensions to add length and fullness and a form for the additional volume on the top of her head. I loved that she gave me complete freedom on her eye makeup! 🙂

New video for Amai Unmei Wednesday, Feb 17 2010 

My friend owns a boutique here in Portland called Amai Unmei. It is a high end, upscale store featuring posh coats and divine dresses. 🙂 She really does have amazing stuff! I love it so much that I’ve purchased a beautiful fuschia and orange silk coat, a brown dress, and 2 blouses. Did I mention I love her stuff??? 🙂

Recently, Allison contacted me asking me to do hair and makeup for her upcoming pre-fall advertisting reel. I jumped at it!

Check it out…

Sexy Nurd Tuesday, Feb 9 2010 

A few months ago I did a shoot with Scott James for stand up comedian AuGi Garred. The concept was FAR different from most of the things I have been doing lately. 😉

It involved AuGi stripping down to his underwear and me spraying him down with Pam cooking spray. It involved me grooming his back hair. It involved me transforming 2 models into 80’s throwbacks. All the while, not making a noise as there was a film screening next door and we got yelled at every time someone said something. 🙂

There were a ton of AuGi’s friends who showed up so it was a real party by the end. Good times! 🙂

Here are a few pics from the night…
