"Photographer, Alexandra Valenti came to me with a photo of model, Bodhi Rose. We were both so anxious and excited to work with her. We kept saying to each other “Look at that face!”
We wanted to do a shoot inspired by Drew Barrymore’s 90’s Guess Jeans ads. We specifically wanted a close up of her face to show off her beauty. I kept the look true to our inspiration by giving Bodhi a classic red lip and a sultry smokey eye. The only thing left to do was have Bodhi lay in the grass, vamp it up, and Alexandra shoot away!"

Brushes used to achieve this Look:
The Circle 1R, has a tilt from the handle and a round fibre bundle which ends in a curved dome of tips that provides soft yet focused application and blending. This patented brush applies products into the fold/crease of the eyelid quickly and softly to help sculpt, and can also be used for other targeted small areas like the corners of the eye or beside the nostrils. It is perfect for applying concealer to blemishes because the fibre bundle shape helps create a feathered edge to the application. Artis brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fibre made for applying cosmetic and makeup products.
The Oval 4, has an overall “footprint” of fibres sized to facilitate application to a larger portion of the eyelid, like the area from the upper lash line to the fold in the eyelid. This patented brush is great for applying concealer to the area under or around the eye. Or, to place a highlight on the brow bone. Artis brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fibre made for applying cosmetic and makeup products.
The Oval 6, is great for applying product to the entire eye lid; or foundation to the face, or contouring the cheekbone area. This patented brush applies blush beautifully to the apple of the cheek and blends it so that the application looks natural and healthy. Artis brushes are made exclusively with CosmeFibre, a revolutionary engineered fibre made for applying cosmetic and makeup products.
