Princess Jasmine – The spirited princess of Agrabah.

We had lots of fun doing this character from the Walt Disney film Aladdin. Always thought that this Jordanian beauty would pull it off splendid. And she did!

A little bit about the model. Nerjes Nana’s mother is from Amman in Jordan and father kurd from Iraq. They met in Sweden and Nerjes was born in Brunflo, Östersund on April 26 in 1997. After her parent’s divorced she moved to the U.S.A at the age of nine and attended school in Bakersfield, CA. After five years she moved to Jordan with her mother. Her mother is an arabic Muslim and always taught her about Islam, but the path of belief and practice was to be of her own choice. Neither Nerjes, her mother or sister wore a hijab. In fact Nerjes states that Jordan is a fairly liberal and a predominantly Muslim country. Some parts of Jordan are even Western and cosmopolitan. However, Jordanians have a deep respect for their King and Islam, and are conservative at the same time as they are liberal. After a few years Nerjes came back to Sweden and settled down in Stockholm and became a certified makeup artist.

This is about the time when I met Nerjes because she was in the same class in school as my daughter Adina. However her mother lived in another part of Sweden, so she stayed with us for longer periods of time. Telling us about her travels in the midle-east. One day we will have to travel with Nerjes to Jordan because through the ongoing troubles and conflicts of the neighbours Egypt and Syria, Jordan still enjoys a stable and peaceful environment to see. Petra, the historical rock-cut architecture and Wadi rum, the impressive red desert landscape and of course the Dead Sea. Just beautiful places and certainly on our To-Do list.

Aurora goes Asia

Posted in Make Up - Savage Beauty with tags , , , , , on May 22, 2009 by Tallee Savage

I had an idea for styling on Aurora (Linn) that I thought would look good on her. Something very Asian stylish. So we all met in Jen’s studio and made a nice little project. This model is very easy to work with. Pretty much everything looks good on her and I know Jen mentioned that the retouch of the pics was very sparse. Great girl to work with.
