Fashion Photo Shoot

I love being a makeup artist and most of all I love shooting fashion, it's so much more dramatic and exciting but I also love the experience of doing makeup just for that everyday woman.  The joy my clients get when they look into the mirror for the first time after a complete hair and makeup application is priceless.  The fact that I can nail their description of what hair and makeup they want without having them feel too over whelmed and out of their comfort zone is something I take pride in.  However when it comes to a fashion shoot, everything seems so much more fast pace.  It's like this sudden adrenaline rushes through you and you get pumping with the hair and makeup deisgns to go with the fashion outfits.  That amazing feeling at the end of the shoot when everything is done and you're left with one big mess to clean up (never look forward to cleaning ever!).  However when I see photos of clients and the photos of the fashion shoot, they both makes me smile in such a different way.

Here I am today just to share with you some awesome photos from a recent shoot, it was so much fun yet I had one heck of a good time working with one great team.

    1. like you said it's my secret! ;)
      I'm kidding of course I'm happy to share. I used Illamasqua Skin base foundation, a little of this goes a long way. I also did not over powder so only powdered down the T-zone on the face and of course under the eyes where you conceal. Set it with a nice setting spray and then of course use a tiny bit of a shimmer highlighter powder on the cheek bones to give it that nice natural dewy glow.


Thanks for the comment and your opinion, much appreciated :)
