Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument

"Tapping into the beauty and natural surroundings, I chose neutral colors and fabrics that have texture, shine, lurex, liquid metallic, beading, and satin — all set against the rugged nature of the desert. Her style is a beautiful alternative to the bright colors we also love."
— Stylist Neil Cohen

"I achieved our model's sophisticated smoky look with a palette of colors inspired by the desert landscape. Key products were Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation and Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer."
