Hi beauties, thought I'd share some behind the scenes pics from my photoshoot last week for my portfolio. My beautiful model Verena did an awesome job that day. I also chose V because my aim is to specialise in doing makeup for women of colour. She let me have creative reign and was up for anything I did. We ended up going to the mall to do some makeup shopping after the shoot and she got the Naked Palette from Sephora and a really pretty purple lipstick from MUFE. For the photoshoot, I decided to do a bridal look and a spanish inspired look to show my range. For the bridal, I wanted her to look soft and pretty but with a bit of an edge and sex appeal. For the spanish inspired look, I wanted her to be strong and sexy inspired by Flamenco dancers and the zorro movies. I made a lace mask for her to wear but it was covering too much of the makeup so I opted not to use it. The concept was going to be the senorita being her own saviour.I even ended up doing some hair and some styling that day.
What do you think of the looks?
