Jouer Cosmetics Spring Sirens Shoot with Troy Jensen...A Photo Diary


Above: Jouer Spring Sirens shoot in action.
Last Thursday, I had the rare and distinct opportunity to be a part of the Jouer Cosmetics Spring Sirens 2014 shoot with celebrity makeup artist Troy Jensen.  This once-in-a-lifetime experience was replete with a glamorous 1960’s inspired Jouer makeover and professional photo shoot with the ebullient Troy and his team, as well as the chance to leave with a cadre of the most brilliant images ever.  

Kindly scroll on for all the details and a photo diary of the afternoon...



Above: The shoot took place at the sleek and modern Milk Studios in LA.

Above: Before the shoot...straight from work, minimal makeup ; ) 
Above: The vision board for the Spring Sirens shoot...some of the editors who participated embraced a red-lipped rocker vibe while others (like me!) embodied a homage to the neutral, ethereal 1960‘s.  My chic, backless, beaded dress was provided by For the Stars Fashion House.
Above: Visiting with Jouer Head of PR extraordinaire (and dear friend!), Meg Young.
Above: Laura and Meg literally glowing at Milk Studios.
Above: Troy had a vision that involved super straight hair.
Above: Getting my hair prepped by Morgan Parks from the Nine Zero One Salon,  Co-owned by Nikki Lee.
Above: Getting a requisite dose of bronzing from Troy's assistants, Veronica Faith and Aliana Moss.  Jouer Founder, the gorgeous Christina Zibler, watching the process!
Above: Troy's skill is palpable...he works with immense speed and precision.
Above: Snapping a shot of the progress.
Above: In the midst of total transformation!
Jouer products used for the complete look are as follows:

Above: When it came to my eyes, he lit up with inspiration and asked his assistant to bring him a flower with small petals...he then proceeded to handcraft the most fanciful eyelashes known to man!
Above: Getting a final touch up before shooting with Troy.
Above: Shot taken by my mom.
Above: Having the best time a girl could hope to have!
Above: Wind machine + stick straight hair + real flower petal lashes = a wildly enjoyable shoot.
Above: Looking at the images with Troy...he is so supportive, gracious and encouraging...his kindness is contagious!
Above: A selfie moment with Troy...he is an expert on locating the most flattering lighting ; )
Above: With the inspiring Christina Zilber...it is always a complete joy to be able to visit with her.
Above: With the lovely Meg Young, directly following the shoot.
Above: Once the shoot was finished, we worked with professional photo retoucher Felipe Menezes to select a favorite image...he then worked his magical editing skills to make it its very best.
Above: With my mom and blog assistant, Laura, who kindly documented much of the day with the images in this post.
Below: The Final Product





Bottom Line: Troy Jensen is a dream to work with and being adorned with a beauteous collection of Jouer products was the perfect way to spend a Thursday afternoon.  I am beyond honored to have been included in the Jouer Cosmetics Spring Sirens shoot; experiencing, first hand, the brilliance of so many talented professionals in a single studio left me awestruck and thankful.  

Jouer is an incredible independent cosmetics line and I highly recommend trying it if you haven't thus far...some of my favorite products include:


I hope your week has been marvelous...I am currently at the RewardStyle Conference in Dallas and cannot wait to share my adventures in a post in the very near future.  Next up, a Hearst Castle Look of the Day post as well as my comprehensive review of the Cle de Peau Cream Foundation!

  7. Hello dear B.P,

    What can I say...absolutely stunning and sophisticated! This appears to resonate with your general makeup philosophy and attitude towards uncomplicated routines which deliver maximum impact and prettiness! I adore this look and can only imagine how dreamy and wonderful it was to be pampered for this special shoot! I am thrilled for you and so happy that you got to experience such a wonderful day. The only thing missing was a shot with Jethro for extra cuteness:).

  14. You actually look totally different in some of those photos..the transformative power of makeup! I must say I love the way your eyes are done. What's the main difference from the way you usually do them?

    1. I agree, Christabel...makeup has the ability to change the face entirely at times! My eyes have a green shadow, black 1960's eyeliner and serious false lashes ; )
