I finally got a chance to shoot with the amazing Melody Melikian! I have always ALWAYS loved her work and couldn't wait for the opportunity to work with her. I had a couple adorable outfits that I wanted to shoot with so I called her over for some playtime! First of all, can I just tell you what a cool girl she is? Along with her sister Melany Melikian, they were able to deliver exactly what I wanted, with amazing creative direction and with the sweetest most down to earth attitude. I have worked with many photographers in the past and I have to tell you, chemistry is everything! When your photographer is confident, yet humble...you have a blast.
So I didn't really feel like doing my own makeup (that happens often by the way!) and I asked my younger sister Armine *armdee_mua* to glam me up. Of course I trust her little fingers AND she was excited to do the "ArmDee" on me...flawless face technique, nice soft glow & golden eyes! I have to admit, I did not change one thing and it lasted the entire night, go Arm! She was nice enough to let me share the details, yay! (see below.) For my hair, my girl Sylvia, who works at my studio in Sherman Oaks was able to style my hair into effortless waves. If you know me, you know I never do anything dramatic, and instead, opt for more effortless do's. Thanks Sylv, so proud to call you my very own! Ok fine...others can have you too :/ You can schedule with either of these girls by calling 818-386-6560 or visiting LilitsMakeupStudio.com
