Two years ago, we redesigned Glow and launched the May 2012 issue. It’s crazy how time flies. May’s issue will hit news stand soon, go get yours at Shoppers Drug Mart! This issue we shot at Madonna’s gym, Hard Candy with Peter Tamlin, got messy on set spilling Vietnamese coffee with Andrew Grinton and bought the most beautiful flowers and Algae for our BIotherm shoot with Natasha V.
April’s Glow is out and Shu Pei is on the cover! How refreshing is it to see an Asian model on a cover. This issue I worked with the very talented Rodney Smith again to create flowers out of makeup for our story on blushes. Peter Tamlin shot our fitness shoot and at the risk of sounding like I’m bragging, I do think we shoot the prettiest workout shots.
The March’s issue of Glow is out and the amazing Kate Bock is on the cover, see the whole shoot here. ! With the new year, I redesigned the contents, masthead and contributor’s page. I’ve been on this geometric kick lately, I’m loving the circles and hexagons. Along with that, beauty decoder also got a refresh where we break down a beauty basic down to steps to show you how to achieve the look. My favourite by far is our spring trend report where I worked with illustrator, Nadia Flower who used makeup to write the subheads.
Glow’s winter 2014 issue is out and we caught up with the quirky Aubrey Plaza! There’s a beauty gift guide for every age woman in your life. I got to work with the very talented illustrator, Antonio Soares for our anti aging story. Natasha V and Rodney worked their magic again for our health frontis playing with wine stains and bar napkins. I got to do a bit of illustration work for our health talk section and worked with Michelle Burca, whom I’ve been dying to work with for our Spotlight with Shiseido eye shadows! This might be my favourite issue so far!
November’s Glow is out on news stands! Head over to Shoppers Drug Mart to pick up your copy.
Pill bottles and boxes are never very pretty to photograph so I’d much prefer illustrating the products. Janice Wu illustrated them beautifully for our health pages. She has this way of bringing mundane objects to life.
