In the heat of summer, we take a dip in our version of the Italian Riviera with shimmery tan skin, bright lips and of course, warm smoky eyes

Beauty Bender, July 2012

After finally tracking down the amazing facilities of Weese’s Pieces, we and photographer Raquel Olivo packed up the crew and headed to Palmdale to shoot this modern Italian Riviera-inspired story. Three-digit heat couldn’t stop us from getting just the right shot… and boy was it worth it!
