Twisted Joshua trees and the desert’s shimmering sands set the stage for copper-flecked spring makeup layered with glistening jewels

Beauty Bender, April 2012

We packed up and headed out to Joshua Tree to do a beauty shoot for Beauty Bender. Armed with an amazing team, we captured some of spring 2012’s hottest beauty trends on a blustery day in the desert. It was a long, brutal day, but totally worth it. Click here to see the whole shoot.
