|"Gun Hill Road's" Judy Reyes, Essence 8/11 makeup by Luis Casco Photo: Derek Blanks|
We did different makeup looks but this shot was the first of the day-smoky eyes to go with her sexy dress shot at a rooftop of a photo studio in Hollywood.
This shot promotes her amazing new movie "Gun Hill Road" which made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Judy plays the mother of Vanessa (a transgedered teenager) and Esai Morales plays her husband who after three years in prison returns to home to find all this out. The twists and turns of this Latino family in the Bronx make this movie a must see this Summer.
Director Rashaad Ernesto Green searched for months at different clubs and organizations to try to find the right Latina transgendered woman. He finally found "Vanessa" who is played by the talented and beautiful Harmony Santana.
