Dee of Swell Beauty and I have been wanting to work together on a fun project for a while. I was beyond excited to finally make it happen with her.

Typically, I don't fuss much with my hair and makeup. With my schedule there really isn't a lot of time for me to deal with it - I'm a lot more focused on getting out the door to work and create. Half the time I don't even wash my hair. So when Dee and I discussed what should be done as far as a tutorial, we both agreed it would make sense to do something that speaks to my personality and style. She went for a edgy-boho look with minimal 'fuss' with the makeup and for the hair she nailed it with a wild half topknot.

What I absolutely love about Dee is her incredible creativity. I've actually been lucky enough to work with her on a few projects now and have witnessed her take an idea and a mood, then turn it into reality. The vision that starts in my head and is conveyed to her, is brought to life. It blows me away every time. That's how talented she is.

Huge thanks to Shawna of Bleudog Fotography for taking these awesome stills. Stayed tuned for more of her photos of the entire look.
