"I was fortunate to not only do Valerie's makeup and hair for this shoot but also take the photos! Like the glamour sirens of the 1940's I decided to concentrate on a beautiful lip, since Valerie had that movie star look about her. Nars Afghan Red satin lipstick was the perfect contrast to her icy blue eyes and made them pop even more. A blast of wind in her hair and she looks ready for the big screen! ”
