Cumberbun and Ribbon = High Fashion

Hi Bellas!

Happy Friday :) I'm excited about this weekend. Tonight I'm going to watch my sorority sister in a Salsa Night performance, Saturday I have a Holiday potluck, and Sunday I'll be joining my girls for a secret santa gift exchange. But for now, I have to get through the workday, lol.

I wanted to share with you a shoot I did a couple of weeks ago with a great, young and upcoming model. This girl has the most amazing poses! On top of it, the day of the shoot was freezing! We were shooting out doors and it was so cold that I had on a bubble jacket and my nose was still runnning! Major props to our model for working it out in the freezing cold! You'll see a couple of upcoming posts on her since we did several looks.

This shoot was definitely a collaborative effort. The stylist totally transformed a basic black evening gown into a high fashion look just with accessories. On her head, you'll notice an avant garde looking hat -- it's actually a men's cumberbun! In some of the shots we actually wrapped black ribbon around her arms to give it a different feel. Lastly, pair tall black boots with an evening gown and it instantly transforms the look. Our stylist Tim was awesome!

For makeup, I focused on clear skin and a smokey eye. I airbrushed and contoured her with Temptu #7 and used MAC's holiday smokey palette on her eyes. On her lips, we went super nude by covering her lips with MAC lip erase in dim, and angel lipstick with c-thru lipglass.


Any big plans this weekend? Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
