I’ve had three of these things and I can confirm, THIS WOMAN IS HARD CORE MENTALLY FOCUSED!!!!!!
Yes. This will be me.
The shitty part is that I still have 2 weeks here.
I want to rip everyone’s fucking brains out just to see if they exist, then throw them as far as I can off the porch. I’d do way more awful things to them but that would mean touching their nasty stupid heads and I don’t want their fucking blood on me

Photo: Lucy Hewett (Lucy + Laura 4 lyfe)
Model: Rosie Schubert
Whenever I see Rosie, I want to play beach volleyball with her and do a keg stand. I have a feeling she would best me in both. That’s something I admire in a mathematician/model.
Lessons learned from this shoot: 1) Natural lighting doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to stay totally lo-fi with your makeup application. While I didn’t want the look to be “Overdone” I still could have incorporated more facial sculpting and glowy products into the look. 2) Sometimes there is dog poop in parks 3) I’m totally radical on a skateboard 3) Lucy makes the best scrambled eggs

Model: Emily Sorlie. Photography/lighting: Lucy Hewett. Reason why she’s shiny: Me.
The main makeup breakthrough of this shoot: Using olive oil hair sheen spray instead of baby oil to get a soft buttery sheen on the model’s skin.
Continued from last night’s post
- Using your castor oil diluted pigments (I use RCMA color process foundation), shadow and highlight deep wrinkles so they’re visable and less latexy (figure 1)
- For this particular character effect, I wanted to do a realistic level of sun and wind damage. I highlighted underneath his eyes with a pale ivory to imitate permanent sunglasses tan lines. This is something that you see on many 50 something outdoorsy types (figure 2)
- Using various small brushes and a stipple sponge loaded with diluted blood purple, I paint small blood vessels and ruddiness on the parts of Ryan’s face that are the most prone to sun and wind damage. It pays to be a little uneven and enhance the unique characteristics of your subject (hotwad)’s skin. This is an important step to bring the look together. (figures 3 and 4)
- figure 5 basically illustrates why I’m not using my camera’s crappy flash for this tutorial. I am not a photographer. It also shows the Ben Nye white hair coloring that I’m using for the beard grey. People don’t go grey,they get white hairs that appear grey next to the darker hairs. Use white, not grey.
- Look closely at your subject’s natural hair patterns. If you’re lucky like me, your man will already have some grey patches to follow (figure 6). Use the brush that comes in the jar to apply to select areas of the beard, hairline and eyebrows and use a toothbrush or eyebrow brush to work it in. Make sure to get the roots and avoid getting it on the skin. If you do get it on the skin, castor oil can remove it lickety split.
- My man knows he look good.
- At this point my grumpy latex husband asked if he could have a big scar for being so nice and sitting still for an hour. This rigid collodian scar took roughly 3 minutes to lay down and stain with “sunburn red”(figure 7)
- This makeup looks better when it’s moving (figure 8). It’s a very sturdy, subtle, and flexible effect that holds up to the most HD camera (mine is not).
- We made faces for hours (figure 9). The end.
That wasn’t quite the end. Ryan spent the next hour peeling stretchy latex off his face and picking latex boogers out of that great beard. Then the end.
