Tickled

Yesterdays look! I wore a bunch of new products from PürMinerals in this look, for example one of the lip glosses that I reviewed recently! I’m totally feeling the combination of natural skin, glowy lids and blushed cheeks right now.

Rio Red

Another lippie from the IsaDora Rio summer collection! This kind of twist up pencil is often a tad too slippery for my taste and that’s kind of the case with this one aswell. It kind of doesn’t stick to ther inner part of my bottom lip. Am I the only one? Haha!

Overall the product list is minimal here, I just threw something on in 3 minutes before running out on the town with my love for a spontaneous drink. I really like to skip undereye concealer for looks like this, I don’t have a lot of blueness at all but that natural depth is really nice with a soft smokey lashline. Don’t be afraid to embrace the natural shapes of your face!

Some pictures from this weekends photoshoot – behind the scenes!

This weekend I’ve worked on a big photo project for a friend of mind who sews (you will get more info + the final pics as soon as they’re done!) where I both did makeup and modeling. A hard thing to manage as I need to stand behind the camera to see what happens to the makeup, but then at the same time I need to stay focused in front of it. Haha. We were two models who wore the same pieces of unisex clothing, so we wore the same makeup looks aswell.

 

Day 1 was a series of lookbook studio shots where the look was a bit more simple and calm to not overplay the simplicity of the pictures.

I did a semi-matte reddish grunge eye with a translucent glitter on the bottom lid that catches the light depending on the angle. The skin was sculpted and bronzed, had translucent wet highlights without shimmer and freckles were applied on top to bring back the look of natural skin. Lips were dabbed with a touch of concealer mixed with lip balm and brows were kept soft.

 

Day 2 was focused on the feeling of the collection, so the pictures were a lot more artistic with harsh coloured lighting that made everything look like freaky sci-fi paintings. It’s sooo awesome, can’t wait to see the end result.

The look for this shoot was heavier than what we wore the day before but still along the same lines. This time I focused on applying products that would contrast and catch the light in an interesting way, as the colour schemes wouldn’t show up as well in the artistic lighting.

Skin was paler, even more freckled and had a heavy champagne gold highlight underneath the dewy glossiness. Eyes were bolder with a nearly black base that had soft mascara smudges, turquoise micro glitter and even more of the big round opalescent glitters that we wore the day before, now on both top and bottom lids.
