Jordan's Engagement Photoshoot

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was busyyyyyy lol once again. Friday I had Atlanta Fashion Week...did about 12 models or so? LOL. That was definitely an experience. Saturday I did a mother and daughter photoshoot and Sunday a male model shoot. Whew! Luckily this just gives me more material for my blog entries! This weekend I finally picked up the clear DVD rack from the container store to house my MAC palettes. Seeing it on Nessa's page really put me over, lol. I had to get it! I only have 3 slots for palettes left. I put my container store lipgloss holder on top and they look so cute together since they're both clear and match perfectly. I also went to the art store Utrecht and picked up some new clear pencil cases for my traincase. I'm a sucker for organizational tools! Anywho, back to the makeup, he he.

A few weeks ago I was able to do makeup on a bride-to-be for her engagement photos. Jordan was referred to me by another client on whom I did the makeup for a boudoir photoshoot. Word of mouth is definitely the best form of advertisement.

Jordan wanted a very natural look. In her shoot she would wear a nice sundress and shoot by The Fountains in downtown Atlanta. In terms of makeup, I wanted Jaimie to look like herself but more polished. She was experiencing some acne breakouts at the time but we were able to cover them right up with my Cinema Secrets foundation. You can't even tell in the photos. Flawless skin = makeup + great lightning. She was a wonderful client. We definitely connected over our talk about her upcoming wedding.

We're working out the details for her bridal makeup, I can't wait!
