Southeast Asian Inspired Photoshoot...

Hi Bellas,

I recently did a photoshoot where we went for a lot of beauty shots with a vibrant jewel toned background. The photographer used an Indian Sari and maroon mosquito netting to accomplish the look. The model is Trinidian and with Arabic descent. I went ahead and did a smokey green eye and wine colored lip and she looked gorgeous. Her foundation was a bit tricky to match. She has a yellow/orange undertone to her skin. I needed to do some mixing of foundations to match her color appropriately. Don't ever be afraid to mix to get your best color. Also, don't feel scared to carry your foundation onto your shoulders and neck. The model had a few imperfections on her shoulders. I applied concealer using my 224 brush to give a softer more natural appearance and firmly pressed setting powder over it. The powder really prevents the makeup from smudging off.

Here's what I used:
-rimmel fix and perfect foundation primer
-cinema secrets foundation
-graftobian powder
-camera ready cosmetics blush
-MAC beauty powder in drizzegold

--rimmel professional brow pencil
-anastasia clear brow gel
-max factor mascara
-ardell lashes - top and bottom
-MAC technakohl liner in graph black
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner in blackest black
-MAC paint in bare study
-MAC olive green pigment
-MAC shroom e/s
-MAC carbon e/s
-MAC bottle green e/s
-MAC juxt e/s

-MAC pencil in vino
-MAC lipstick in Deep Attraction
-MAC gloss (wine color, can't remember the name)
