"Fire Spirit" Yoga Apparel by Jaquita Straw

Hello followers and makeup lovers!
I haven't posted anything in awhile because I haven't had too many makeup projects going on. That is all changing as we get closer to the holidays. Yesterday I did a job with Anthony Archuleta and Tiffany Giovanini for talented young designer Jaquita Straw. Straw's new line of yoga clothing from Urban Tree LLC is called "Fire Spirit." Archuleta really captured this concept and the spirituality of yoga practice in his shoot at Red Rocks. Fortunately we had a beautiful day and perfect weather for this outdoor November shoot!

And here's a fun fact: All the fabrics used in "Fire Spirit" have been dyed with herb and beetle matter! What a cool process!

The designer really liked a natural and tribal aesthetic. That meant a lot of makeup fun for me! I stuck with a wide variety of earth tones for the eyes and painted on different tribal inspired patterns on the seven different models.

Seven models in an hour and a half was crazy! Tifanny Giovanini, amazing local hair stylist, and I were working so fast. Everything turned out beautifully though. I would say this has been the most fun shoot I've done thus far.

I've included a few images below as a sneak peek of what we've been up to! There will be many more images to come including close ups of the makeup and some behind the scenes images.

Please check out the following links for the very talented photographer and designer:
