I have a fun story to share with you today. Last June I participated in the Metrin Skincare, "Metrin For All" campaign and photo shoot.
Metrin is a skincare company based in Vancouver BC and has been making exceptional skin care products for over 80 years!
My longtime friend Faye was the campaign manager for this project and she put out a call to local men and women to participate in this fun photo shoot.
I love to take advantage of any opportunity to put myself out there and try new things, especially when it involves make up and skincare since I am a former make-up artist and esthetician. I must admit, I was very eager to live out my America’s Next Top Model fantasy and practice my “smize” for the camera. That’s "Smile With Your Eyes" for the uninitiated.
The photo shoot was a really fun day with rad people to hang out with. I arrived at the studio in Vancouver which is just over an hour drive north of my house.
They had lots of yummy treats, drinks and wine for us to nibble on. There was a pro make up artist to make sure we looked our best.
I was nervous being in front of the camera because I don't have any kind of professional modeling experience but the photographer and her assistant were really nice and made me feel comfortable. Besides there is always magic photo editor software available to help fix any imperfections!
The campaign will be running on social media so look out for me on Instagram and other places on the web doing my best Blue Steel impression. You can read more about the #Metrin For All campaign here and be sure to check out their awesome products.
