I quite certainly wouldn’t win photographer of the entire year with these pics! I wanted to share the look from this weekend’s shoot with Alex Gregory (pictures to follow!) and the inspiration behind the hair and makeup. The McQueen brand never fails to disappoint. I love how they really push the style boundaries and challenge our perception of beauty.

I want to state that the look is somewhat grotesque, however in a really beautiful and mesmerizing way. This might not be to everyone’s taste, but the artistic brilliance of McQueen can never be denied. The inspiration for this look originated from their sister brand actually, McQ (pictured left). Many designers and makeup artists have embraced bold, block color this season and I am happy to label along! Peter Phillips, Makeup artist for Dries Van Noten, provides a great example of stop color at its best. Discover more about his motivation and the merchandise he used to create this look at Style.com’s ‘Beauty Counter Blog’. Eyes: MAC color sticks in Yellow/Red/Cyan/White and Makeup Forever’s Matte Eyeshadow in Tangerine.

Boxwood. Prune in spring or summer season. Please, don’t prune when it’s freezing. Boxwood won’t likely tolerate a severe prune, so don’t ever reduce by more than 25% at the same time. Remember to do some thinning slashes so that light and air can reach the inside of the plant. To tell for sure, pinch a small twig. If the buds are opposite each other directly, then you’ve got a boxwood. If the buds aren’t opposite but are straight, instead, “alternate,” you’ve got a holly. Butterfly Bush. Prune in late winter/early spring to slim out the plant prior to planting season growth.

Avoid fall or winter pruning. Camellia. Important be aware: Camellias require very little pruning. In addition they gradually grow very, so they don’t recover quickly from pruning. I don’t realize why folks waste time shearing them into orbs. They have a circular growth habit anyway. That said, you can cut back the wild shoots to maintain shape. You can control the development of camellias using thinning cuts also.

For sasanquas, which bloom in the fall, wait until late winter/early spring to prune. For japonicas, which bloom in the wintertime, wait until after they bloom to prune. You can cut out inactive or fragile stems any moment. Elaeagnus. Grumpy Gardener says that the best time to prune elaeagnus is “any time you have a chainsaw.” I second that emotion. I’d also add that you might need a stump grinder in addition to your chainsaw. Gardenia. Prune in past-due winter/early spring to remove straggly branches.

You can also prune in the summer after the plants turn brown and begin to drop. Do not prune in the past due fall. Holly. Most evergreen hollies will tolerate a fairly severe prune, plus they can be pruned most any right time. If holly is had by you that produces berries that you want, prune in winter before spring flowering. If you don’t value the berries, you can prune just about any time during the growing season (past due winter and planting season are always memories). Remember-the will branch where you cut it holly.

Many folks use hollies in hedges. Hydrangea. With hydrangeas, you should know what kind you have. Bigleaf, French, and Oakleaf hydrangeas bloom on old solid wood, which means that you should prune after flowering. Peegee and soft hydrangeas bloom on new wood and can be pruned back in late February or early March (if you prune back seriously, you’ll get huge flowers but not a huge amount of them). Loropetalum. Prune in March after the plant flowers.
