A snap from my Insta while I was reporting on this story. That’s the amazing Savana Styles in the chair, while being interviewed for a documentary.

OMG OMG OMG! My article about makeup artists at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Vegas is live at Allure.com! Folks, I had such a fabulous time reporting on this story. I profiled three makeup artists who, between them, were prepping about 15 women. Long days at the expo and long nights at the AVN Awards and after-parties mean a LOT of makeup help! That meant that for two days, I got to hang out with some of the industry’s top talent and the people who help them transform into their best selves for their fans. I learned volumes about makeup and hair, met awesome humans, lounged in other people’s hotel rooms, and laughed a lot.

Check out a nibble of the article:

“I feel like this is just like any other job,” [Rebecca Lee Castro] adds. “I have fun doing makeup, and I can’t let everything around me affect me. I deal with each client as they come, and whatever the situation, I make sure that I’m prepared for it.” The quirks of working in porn still make an impression, though. “I’m used to craft services tables on regular TV and film sets,” she tells me. “But most of the time when I go on set for an adult project, it’s like, crafty, lube, toys, douches. I’m like, ‘Oh, so, the apples go next to the dildos?'”

Read the rest! Enjoy the gorgeous photography of the makeup artists and their clients, snapped by the wonderful Bridget Bennett! It’s all at Allure.com!
