Edgy Photoshoot

Monday, September 29, 2014

I had the honor of working with Mallory Grace Photography a few weeks ago in one of my favorite parts of town, Decatur. I had so many ideas when Mallory told me the shoot would be "edgy." Jenna was our beautiful model. I wanted to do an intense avant garde look but decided to keep it tame and save that for next time. Instead, I was inspired by some of my favorite tv shows The Vampire Diaries and True Blood. This was my take on an edgy look and I couldn't of done it without Mallory!

I had so much fun doing Jenna's makeup. She is naturally gorgeous and she reminded me of a Victorias Secret model and Megan fox mixed with The Olsen twins circa 1999 "Two of a kind" any one? The makeup artist for the Victorias Secret fashion shows usually does a soft smokey eye, flirty lashes, glowing skin and glossy nude lips. It is a universal look on any woman. My version of that makeup look is a little more dramatic but is perfect for a night where you know you will getting photos taken or if you want to feel fancy. Makeup details listed below...

While visiting Seattle a few weeks ago, I had the honor of working with an amazing photographer Anessa Rhae Photography. The Model had a unique look that I wanted to play off of. The first look was graphic liner and a dark lip. I had to transition in the rain outside from the first look to a bohemian makeup look. I had so much fun working with Anessa and Sophie. The photos came out beautiful. I love creative makeup looks and hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did.

September is here and I could not be more happy that this hot summer is almost over! I am an October baby. Autumn is my favorite season, so I wanted to do a makeup look that focused on matte lips and bold liner. Have fun with bold looks this season, and don't be afraid to try dark colors! The lipstick is very similar to the popular Kylie Jenner look. Product details are listed below...

Girlactik Lip Paint: I used "Allure" and "Demure" mixed on my lips for the "Kylie Jenner" lip. This is a liquid lipstick that turns into a matte stain in thirty seconds. This stuff does not budge! I love it. 

Girlactik Star Gloss: "Baby doll" on the left was not used because I wanted to keep it matte. However if you are wanting a glossy look I would highly recommend their lip glosses!

Girlactik Precise Marker Liner: I usually hate marker liners and opt for liquid or gel liner. That was until I came across this gem. The brush is similar to a liquid liner brush but very tiny. Perfect for a clean winged liner.
