Just when you think your job couldn’t get any more exciting it does! Last year was the first year I decided to be a part of Portland Fashion Week. I had so much fun, met so many talented, encouraging, and inspiring people that this year I wanted to be even more involved. I was given the privilege to team up with an incredible group of artists as part of the 2010 makeup team. Having more responsibility this year allowed me to involve my interns as part of the makeup staff for the show as well. Aubrey Childers, Shannon Berecek, Courtney Rogers, and Destiny Taylor came in as interns and left as super stars. I was so proud of these incredibly talented women that show so much enthusiasm and talent for what they do!

One of the most incredible opportunities I was given by Sunny Fire, the lead Make up artist for the show, was to be the key makeup artist for Project Runway winner Seth Aaron. His talent and charisma was electrifying! Being back stage with this designing genius was nothing I have experienced before. I wanted to share some of the shots from that night, as well as thank Sunny Fire and Portland Fashion week for this amazing opportunity. I would also like to thank the amazing Jared Birt for capturing all the images.
