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.
|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.

- Jouer Age-Repairing Perfector Cream Foundation in #4 and #5 as a concealer to even out the complexion.
- Jouer Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer in Bronze and Deep Bronze to create a radiant bronzed look.
- Jouer Mineral Face Powder in Perle Naturel and Perle Fonce to add a mattifying glow.
- Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peony for a natural pink flush.
- Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Pistachio as a subtle and sophisticated wash of color.
- Jouer Tinted Lip Enhancer in Cosmo for super shiny, barely there nude pink lips.

|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: 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.|

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:
- Powder Eyeshadow in Maple (reviewed HERE)
- Cream Eyeshadow in Chiffon as a highlighter (reviewed HERE)
- Anti-Aging Moisture Primer (reviewed HERE)
- Meg and Sophia lipsticks (reviewed HERE and HERE)
- Age-Repairing Perfector Cream Foundation (reviewed HERE)
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!
