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!

The Outstanding Kyle Goldie Wednesday, Jul 21 2010 

If you know me well, you will know I oft times lament about the lack of really strong photographers here in Portland. Now, Portland has a lot of photographers. It has a lot of good photographers. It has a handful of great photographers but that handful is small and I’ve shot with most of them. I was really excited to get a chance to work with Mr. Kyle Goldie.

Kyle is a young newer photographer but his work is simply outstanding. I have watched his work for the last few years and have waited, not so patiently sometimes, for my chance to work with him. His images are stellar and very very strong. 🙂 A model by the name of Lola contacted me via referral from Kyle to do hair and makeup for a shoot they were doing. I jumped at it. It meant loading up at dawn thirty to go to Seattle but I was excited!!! 🙂

Here are some images…

I’m looking toward working with him on future projects. My book would definitely love some Kyle Goldie beauty shots! And Fitness! And Men… and swimsuit… and beach. 😉

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!

I found this lovely little tidbit sitting in my in box tonight! Very fun!

A few months back I did a shoot with Brandon Witzel, outstanding clothing designer Claire la Faye, very talented hair stylist Kira Pinski, gifted clothing stylist Rebecca Westby, and model Sarah Schroeder from OMM.

I added a few of the images to my portfolio and to my web site but hadn’t seen or heard much from it since. In fact, I had forgotten about the images. Tonight I find one of the images on Glamour Magazine’s online site…advertising Claire la Faye’s designs. Very cool. See link below! 🙂

I love doing these fun collaboration shoots. Its always a fun time and there are often really unexpected delightful results!

Introducing Portland designer Claire La Faye Wednesday, Apr 14 2010 

I was browsing the net a few weeks ago, looking for a designer’s clothes to use that have NOT been used a hundred times over already. I wanted something new… something fresh… something inspired. I love Sarah Seven and her designs but pretty much every makeup artist and photographer has shot her dresses. I didn’t want to be part of the masses.

I saw some of Claire La Faye’s designs and I just had to smile. It was everything I was hoping to find. Her stuff is creative, beautiful, and unique.

I immediately looked her up and found she was a recent transplant from CA and so I wrote her and asked to borrow some of her clothes for an upcoming shoot. Claire was very open and soon I had a photographer and some beautiful models, an amazing hair stylist, and an outstanding wardrobe stylist. It was to be perfect! 🙂 Makeup by me, of course! 😉

Here are a few images from the shoot…

More pictures to follow with beautiful model Sarah Shroeder. 🙂

Orange tile and fox fur Thursday, Apr 8 2010 

Here are the remaining looks from my shoot with Brandon Witzel. Miss Megan who is now modeling all over China was a really good sport for this last location as it was a covert little public restroom. I walked in and was afraid to touch anything and here was Megan leaning back against the walls, sitting on the floor, etc. Modeling is a hard job!!! 🙂

Special thanks to Kira Pinski for her outstanding hair styling and for supplying the fox fur! It added a certain crazy element and it made me smile!

Black Eyes Black Lips Wednesday, Apr 7 2010 

The first part of the shoot with Brandon Witzel was with Miss Megan in pointe shoes and a nice dress, we thought we’d dirty her up for 2nd half of the shoot.  From this part of the shoots conception through its execution, the concept changed quite a bit.  The final results were not what I had intended but there were some great shots!!!

Beauty En Pointe Sunday, Mar 28 2010 

There is a model in Portland that I have wanted to work with for a few years now. Her name is Megan and rumor had it that Mode International was shipping her off to China for fashion week and she would be gone a big chunk of time. I conversed with some creative peeps and we set up a shoot with her and photographer Brandon Witzel. I have been admiring his work and the softer feel of his images and thought he would be perfect for this shoot with Miss Megan.

He agreed and so amazing hair stylist Kira Pinski and I started dreaming up a shoot concept. We really wanted something to do with ballet so Megan got her pointe shoes, Kira rented a studio, and Megan got a designer dress from Sarah Seven and we were off.

Here are a few of the best images from the studio…

I went for a really simple beauty look. Soft and clean. I wanted her face to blend in and accent the rest of the scene, not dominate the shot.

The next look was more edgy and will be showcased later… 🙂 I love working with a great team!!!!

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!!!

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…
