A few weeks ago, my sister came over after work to just hang out at my house. Out of boredom, we decided "Let's do a photoshoot!" Usually...planning these shoots take a lot of planning. I think of a look, consult with the model and the photographer, coordinate a common time, think of a location, etc. This shoot had none of these plans, but we did it anyway. It was supposed to be just for fun, but ended up being one of my favorite shoots! The bow on her hair is actually a belt from H&M (therefore so big), but it was perfect on the hair for a fashion shoot. We used my garage for the black wall and the lighting. She was the perfect model for this dramatic look and was comfortable in front of the camera (maybe because I was shooting?). I have had some experience with photography, but nothing crazy. But I do LOVE to shoot because I capture the specific angles that I want and need for my portfolio. I think I did a pretty good job though, I must say! :) As for her make up, I used Giorgio Armani lasting silk UV foundation in 6.5. For the eyes, I used the Make Up Forever eyeshadows (my new obsession), feather eyelashes for fullness on top and single bottom lashes. For eyeliners, I used InnerRim Highlight eyeliner from Smashbox and Bobbi Brown black gel eyeliner on top. I used the 3D pink blush from Benefit and Pink Friday limited edition lipstick by MAC. If you guys have any specific how-to questions for it, please let me know! Thank you for all the continued love and support. Hope you guys enjoyed it!
