Hello Giggles Beauty Crush Awards 2019


Pals IT IS HERE! The best time of the year (OK maybe there are a lot of best times of year don’t judge) the Hello Giggles Beauty Crush Awards! The team over at Hello Giggles spent a ton of time sorting through and testing drug store and fancier non drug store options in a pile of categories like lipsticks, mascaras, skin care and pretty much everything you could possibly think of that you might want to put on your face to make it RADIATE WITH GLAMOUR.

I was fortunate enough to get to team up with this badass crew of ladies to photograph this project and once again I think we struck gold! The theme was “Riverdale meets Valentine’s day in a diner” so obviously I was in LOVE. Please head right over to their website to see all the winners and bookmark where I will be spending all my paycheck this week… I’m coming for you face mist…




I loved literally every photo we took but here were some of the winners!

Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask


Fenty Stunna Lip Paint


CoverGirl Exhibitionist Mascara


Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow


Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence Calming With Aloe Leaf & Chamomile


Essie Nail Polish


The T3 Cura Luxe hair dryer (aka the fanciest hair dryer I have ever seen)


There are literally over a hundred products at a bunch of different price points on their list and the whole company was a-buzz with excitement for this shoot so you know they were really putting in the work testing them all!

It’s rare that I get to shoot a set that is SO on brand for me (hi makeup and burgers!) with such an incredible team of women that I just needed to set some time aside to gush about them all!

The hair and makeup team for this shoot was: Daniela Bernotas (@danielabmua) and Elizabeth Abravaya (@makeupartist_elizabeth_a)

Produced by: Brittni Brown (@brittnus)

Edited by Senior Beauty Editor: Marie Madeline Lodi Andreakos (@agentlover)

They all absolutely crushed it and made it just the best day on set!


Hopefully you enjoyed seeing some of the fruits of our glamorous labor and I’ll do my best to actually remember to post some of the finished work I do and not just mention it and run off to shoot something else (like I have been doing ooops…)!

In the meantime though, please do check out their list because it is just too cool!


Until next time,

Happy snacking,
