Luscious Lavender, The Makeup Story
"What better way to bring back a glimmer of nostalgia than through the neon brights of the 80’s! Bill was inspired to create this downtown look after perusing through his collection of early work and remembering the fashion of Stephen Sprouse, the early music of Madonna and the over the top styling of Boy George. “It was such a vibrant-anything goes- period….the brighter the better! I loved working with photographer Juan Algarin on this shoot, and Betty from ONE models really made it all come together-she had just the right attitude to pull off those fuchsia eyes!”
