Taking It Literal

I love collaborating with other talented individuals, so when Claire Nobles came to me with the idea of literally being Dipped in Black, I couldn't resist.  She spent over an hour perfectly blending different hues all over my face and arms. When she was all finished, I took one look in the mirror and was terrified in the best way possible.

When we started shooting, they turned the lights down and I got into a creepy state. I began smearing the black goo all over my face and body; which was the best part because we never want to mess up our makeup.  I was a black mess at the end but it was all worth it and Justin was able to capture the most incredible moments.
