Highlight: CoMoe Makeup and Photos

Meet Courtney Johnson and Moe Marquez, the lovely duo behind the spectacular CoMoe Makeup and Photos. Moe (right) is the makeup and hair stylist and Courtney aka Cojo (left) is the photographer! Together they’ve come up with the wonderful idea of showcasing their talents through their combined efforts. For Spring Dapper Day 2015, all hair and makeup was completed by Moe and we wanted to showcase their work by publishing Cojo’s photos featuring Michelle, Jackie and Ally during the hair and makeup process from Dapper Day. Take a look below!

Michelle’s Winter Favorites


“USA Believe” t-shirt by Bring Hockey Back. I am a huge fan of hockey, comfy t-shirts, and supporting small companies, so when I saw BHB released this new design in honor of the 30th anniversary of the “Miracle On Ice” at Lake Placid, I just had to have it!


Lemon Zinger herbal tea by Celestial Seasonings. Being a big tea drinker, Winter or not, I had my work cut out for me when looking for a decaffeinated tea that didn’t make me want to cozy up in bed and I found just the one!

“She will touch the leaf of the apple, and die!” decal by Decalology Designs on Etsy.  Aurora, was my favorite Disney princess growing up so I took to Etsy to find the perfect decal for my Macbook. I ended up custom ordering from Decalology Designs and had a beautiful outcome.

Urban Decay Naked series fountain (shade 3.5 ). I am not your girl when it comes to makeup, I mean except for certain events I successfully avoided it till I was 21! But a good friend taught me the ropes and set me up with this foundation and now I wear makeup every day!

Red Nose Red 01 lipstick by Kate Moss for Red Nose Day. After living in London for four months, I, like many Brits, get stoked when Red Nose Day comes around (although Americans think I’m a little crazy for wanting to wear a red clown’s nose). One of the efforts to raise money for the country-wide fundraiser was a new Kate Moss lipstick and I absolutely love the shade of red!

With Winter now in the past it’s time for me to launch into buying all things Spring, so look out world!
