About the Series

Every day is a matter of life and death in a hectic New York City hospital, but for Nurse Jackie that’s the easiest part. Between chronic back pain that won’t quit, and a personal life on the constant edge of collapse, it’s going to take a white lie here, a bent rule there, and a handful of secret strategies to relieve the pain, and stay one step ahead of total disaster. Three-time Emmy® winner Edie Falco stars in the critically acclaimed Showtime Original Comedy Series NURSE JACKIE.

Nurse Jackie – Sundays at 9pm on Showtime.

Caravan loved having Betty Gilpin come to visit us for a super fun photo shoot. It was easy when everything looked smashing on her and she is such a natural beauty. We had a great shoot and it was the perfect backdrop since we were shooting in the Bar Bordeaux at the fantastic Carlton Hotel.  In her first look she is wearing a BOBI tee by Kara Lusardi and in her second look one of our favorite new resources LEON MAX – http://www.maxstudio.com/

For Betty’s look we wanted to keep it natural and timeless. For Betty’s hair we created some beautiful volume and waves that lasted all day. We first prepped the hair with 450 Headset and Get Layered Hairspray before curling the hair with the tapered styling wand and the ½ inch styling wand. Mixing up each layer between the styling wands to give the curls a natural look. We wanted to add a bit of extra volume to the hair by using Powder Play in the roots. This gives fantastic texture and volume to her hair. Once the curls had time to set and cool we gently tousled them and gave a final spray of Get Layered Hairspray for a touchable workable hold.

Betty’s makeup was delicate and natural with the eyeshadow palettes Casablanca and the nude 18color palette. With a thin liner applied with the HD Cream Liner in Coco and a few coats of mascara her eyes were perfect. A dab of light peach blush and a fresh nude natural lip and she was picture perfect. And to create that perfect canvas we used MD Complete eye cream.

Betty’s nails were painted with Avril.

On Betty’s 2nd Look, we wanted to add a bit of glam by creating a great updo. We first created a faux pompadour to the top of her hair and with the sides, we French braided each side all the way down to the nape of the neck and continued the braid down the length of the hair on both sides. With the two braided pieces we twisted them up and into the pompadour giving a beautiful glamorous updo. We kept her makeup classic and added a bit of pink color to the lip.
