Stuff We Love: DD Nickel Makeup

Whew! What a crazy couple of days of traveling that was! On Wednesday, we got up super early to drive the 18 hours from Dallas to Phoenix. Yea, somehow we forgot to mapquest that ahead of time and ended up having to make tracks that day to be in town to catch our flight yesterday morning. We got in in the wee hours of the morning and then had to get back up bright & early to hop a flight back to CT to shoot our first wedding of the year tomorrow. After one of the roughest landings I’ve ever experienced in Baltimore (seriously thought we were going to skid off the runway….the bruises on Justin’s hand prove it) and nearly having our flight canceled for snow in CT, we are HERE!! So needless to say, last night was all about sleep! We can’t wait to get back to shooting tomorrow, and since Julia stayed back in Phoenix with Cooper we are so lucky to have the lovely Nicole Benitez coming all the way up from DC to help us out. Good times!

Speaking of good times, let me tell you about DD’s new line of makeup that she is just launching! :) Now I am usually a loyal MAC girl myself, but DD gave me a whole goody bag of samples, including 3 new eye shadows, and it’s all I’ve been using since! Here are some of the shots that Justin took of the new line, so you can check em out for yourself!

**I think J really enjoyed setting everything up for this shoot because it took him back to his advertising photography days at RIT. Where he got to study techniques like this from the greats like Jody Dole & Irving Penn.
