Trash the Dress Shoot: Arba

Hi Bellas,

This is my third Trash the Dress Shoot with the Atlanta Wedding Photographer Association. These shoots are a lot of work beginning with makeup around 11am and then a multi-location shoot outdoors. I follow around the crew to touch up and we usually end about 6pm. Now that Winter has approached these shoots have been placed on hold. It gives me time to recover from all the bug bites I get on the shoots!

The model was actually wearing a borrowed dress from a boutique so we couldn't really "trash the dress". Instead, we placed her in unique outdoor settings to contrast the beauty of the dress with the roughness of the outdoors. In terms of makeup, I decided to go for a lilac themed eye since that was the model's favorite color. I really worked hard on her skin. I used the Electro Lipstick trick to conceal her stubborn undereye worked!

Here's What I Used (All MAC unless otherwise specified):

-soft ochre paint pot
-beautiful iris e/s (1/3 of inner lid)
-tempting e/s (middle of lid and above crease)
-shadowy lady e/s (outer v)
-shroom e/s (highlight)
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner in blackest black
-smolder eye kohl
-Ardell demi wispies
-spiked brow pencil
-embark e/s (brows)

-cinema secrets foundation
-electro lipstick (as an orange neutralizer)
-graftobian powder
-definitive sculpting powder
-housewine blush

Check me out in Action...The model appears super tall because she is standing on a stool!
