Getting the Star Treatment
The GlamourSquad, will soon be launching our own website, as a platform to promote our Blogs, highlight our areas of specialization and promote our services. What better time to get a professional head shot to accompany my bio?
Enter my gorgeous and prolific friend and GlamourSquad founder, Charu Sari who writes Butterfly Diary. Charu set us up with a team of pros, to give their best shot, at our best shot.
We started our Day at the Avalon Salon & Day Spa, at 112 Christopher St. It was a gorgeous day and the West Village was bustling with energy...so was the Avalon Salon & Day Spa. Obviously, it is a neighborhood destination of choice. Friendly, cozy, busy, but not frenetic, we were graciously lent their private makeup area.
There, we consulted with former model, master makeup artist and cosmetics creator Christopher Drummond. Christopher gave Charu the most amazing smokey eye and indulged my outer Diva, with some carefully placed lash extensions. He dusted both of us, with his "baby", Saude Pele Radiance Booster, a 100% Vegan, antioxidant infused powder. Somehow, it both masks imperfections and highlights your best features...genius! Christopher finished both our looks, with MAC's Pro Lash Mascara and Tinted Lipglass.
Our session was photographed by the talented Brooklyn based photographer ChangoBi, who captured Christopher's work in progress. Chris tried giving us a crash course in posing, which made us break down in fits. Frieda Pinto and Sandra Bullock, we are not, but some how ChangoBi, coaxed some terrific shots out of both of us.
Gawd Darlings!!! This glamour stuff is hard work!!! No wonder flutes of Cristal flow freely backstage at the Tents.
