Sphinx's Shoot

Hi Bellas!

A few weeks ago I did another shoot with a male model named Sphinx (not his real name by the way, that's his stage name). When it comes to male makeup, it's pretty standard unless you're trying to do something funky. I may be working with him in the future and the next shoot I'm putting fun makeup on him! On this shoot I was also able to double as the fashion stylist...I picked out this outfit for him. I thought the white outfit would contrast nicely with the bright colors of the graffiti at the shoot location.

Sphinx came to me with a recent breakout. We had to make sure his skin was looking right. I used my trusty Cinema Secrets foundation and it worked like a charm. He was also looking a little pale so I used my Graftobian powder palette to give him more of a golden glow. His skin looks absolutely flawless in the pictures.

Here's What I Used:


-MAC prep & prime

-Cinema Secrets foundation

-Graftobian dual finish powder foundation


-Covergirl clear mascara


-Rite Aid chap stick


-spiked eyebrow pencil

Wow. He looks hella sexy. Kudos on the outfit pick too Ren. Hmmm...wonder if he is into females? Lol. Is Cinema Secrets foundation good for oily skin and is it noncomedegenic? I'd love to try it. Where can I get it? And what is that powder you used on his face? Never heard of it but I am always on the hunt for the perfect face bases. Thanks Ren!
