Here are the first two (out of three) advertorials featuring Lolene for Sebastian and OK! magazine. Photographed by Wendy Hope, the series was shot in the Esquire Soho apartment, a swanky bachelor pad/event space in NYC. Each room is created specifically by a designer such as Diesel or Hugo Boss, or a major brand such as Heineken or Lufthansa. The space hosts red carpet charity events for non-profit organizations like Save The Children and Faster Cures.I had a great time shooting with this crew and Lolene was a fun gal to work on. She loves bright colors, especially her trademark pink lip, so we were a perfect match! I airbrushed her with Kett Cosmetics and used some Make Up For Ever, Benefit and M.A.C. to create glowy skin and a flushed cheek. I loved that she suggested a neon blue or green eye, so I gave her a mixture of both for the studio scene. It's not all the time we get to be bold with color, especially in advertising, so it was awesome that both Lolene and Sebastian were all about it!
I also loved the hair/hair stylist on this shoot, Sebastian Pro Anthony Cole. He created all this gorgeous volume and shape using their Volupt product line. Even better, Anthony was an inspiring and passionate person to work with. Look out for our third collaboration of the series in OK! mag soon. xoxo
