This had to be one of the funnest shoots I have ever been on.  I got to groom the Workaholics boys for Bello Magazine’s April 2014 issue.  I love their shown Comedy Central and was pleasantly surprised that they were just as awesome in person!

I finally made my first makeup video for men. Like the title says - this is a subtle look. I know a lot of models and guys who are always taking photos or who just want to enhance their looks. This is a simple routine that anyone can try for themselves.

Every gentleman understands the importance of a good grooming routine. Most of the products featured today are made in America. From personal experience they’re my go-to products and I encourage you to experience their preventive benefits firsthand.

Kiehls eye depuffer cream: It’s important to keep your eyes looking fresh and healthy. This cream helps you get rid of saggy and puffy skin under your eyes.

Game Day Men’s Changing spray: The pear cactus extract and black tea hydrate your skin and prevent U.V. damage.

Jack Black Men’s Lip Balm SPF 25: This balm relieves dry, chapped or irritated lips using antioxidants, shea butter, avocado oil, vitamin E, and green tea extract. While providing UV and UVB production against the sun, it also keeps your lips guarded against windburn and temperature extremes.

Beardbrand spiced citrus beard oil: This beard oil keeps your beard conditioned and shiny. It keeps the skin from underneath your hair follicles from getting dry and flakey. More importantly, this lightweight oil doesn’t feel greasy.

Baxter of California tortoiseshell hair comb: This fancy looking comb has tapered teeth and a rounded handle to make it easy and comfortable to style your hair.

Arm and Hammer Natural Deodorant: This deodorant contains baking soda and natural plant extracts to absorb and fight odor. I appreciate that this deodorant doesn’t contain aluminum, parabens, colorants or animal-derived ingredients. Lastly, it will leave you feeling fresh and clean with its blend of citrus and lavender.

Anthony Men’s After Shave Balm: This cream should be used after shaving and contains natural botanical extract, allantoin, Vitamins A, C, E and Aloe Vera to help soothe and treat razor burn.

Layrite Men’s Pomade: This pomade includes water-based beeswax for an increased hold. It’s easy to spread in your hands and the added vanilla is a nice subtle addition.  

Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30: This lightweight moisturizer protects your skin against sun damage, premature aging and improves your skin texture.

Vermilyea Pelle: This handmade-waxed canvas leather dopp kit is the perfect travel accessory. Blog post about this beautifully crafted and “Made in America” bag coming soon!

Benedict Cumberbatch photoshoot for Out Magazine


We had a brilliant day shooting Benedict Cumberbatch for the November cover story of @outmagazine in the amazing Barbican conservatory amongst all the tropical plants   with photographer @samuelbradley .
Thanks @seonaseonaseona the producer.

I used products from Sisley Paris for a natural and healthy look

Restorative Facial cream which is very soothing and nourishing with Shea butter , it soothes any skin irritations and sunburn so its great to use in the summer when the skin has seen a lot of sun. I find it very light and easy to apply  £85.00. Next i used Nutritive lip balm which is very hydrating without being greasy , some lip balms can look like lip gloss, not a look most men appreciate.RRP £44.00 . Very little makeup was needed , just a little Phyto-Cernes Eclat concealer in shade 2 which is great for smoothing any fine lines and camouflaging imperfections  and finished off with a little Phyto-Poudre in Shade 2 RRP £62.00 . I love this powder because its very sheer and invisible and i find i can use on all light to medium skin tones .

Bay Rum is a skin and hair tonic first developed by sailors passing through the Caribbean in the 16th century. They would steep leaves from the local West Indies Bay Tree (Pimenta Racemosa) into their favorite drink, Jamaican rum, to produce bay rum: a wonderful tonic acting as both a strong cologne and a potent healer of dirty, irritated skin and hair exposed to the harsh salt and sun of the sea. Wood & Iron Co. Bay Rum aftershave is our own blend of West Indies bay leaves, organic witch hazel, soothing aloe, and proprietary blend of “trade spices” that serve to soothe and cool irritated skin, condition hair follicles, and tighten pores, while also lending you the fragrance of the open sea & spice merchants of old.
