Hip Hop Shoot

Hi Bellas!

It is way too cold in Atlanta, lol. I can't wait for it to warm up! Anywho, I wanted to share with you some pictures I took of a shoot I did a few weeks ago. The client is an up and coming female rapper named Jagged. I listened to her CD during the shoot and she's amazing! She can rap and sing and reminds me of a mix of Queen Latifah, Jasmine Sullivan and Eve. Get it girl!

Jagged was worning with renowned photographer Annette Brown. Annette has shot everyone from Prince, Jay Z, Jeezy, Allan Iverson...all the big hitters. I was really excited to work with her and definitely learned a few things in the process.

Jagged wanted two looks: a smokey one for a little black dress, and a bright one for a b-girl look she was rocking.





Check out me in action:


Here are her before and afters. Click on the picture to expand.

A quick run down of each look: I used MUFE orange corrector to conceal undereye circles, Cinema Secrets Cream foundation, graftobian powder, definitive sculpting powder to contour. I extended her eyebrows using spiked brow pencil and embark e/s.

Smokey Look: On her eyes she's wearing Sharkshin Shadestick, Black Tied e/s and Vanilla e/s. On her lips she's wearing chesnut lipliner, siss lipstick, and chai lipglass.

Bright Look: On her eyes she's wearing a bunch of colors from the Yaby Best of Both Worlds palette. On her lips she's wearing Mahogany lipliner, violetta lipstick, and the hot pink dazzleglass.


Here's a pic of the makeup I wore to the shoot.


Stay tuned for my blogger garage sale!
Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

Both looks are gorgeous! I love how you concealed her dark undereye circles so well. I'll have to look into that MUFE corrector you used. And of course, your eye makeup looks great!

Looking forward to your garage sale! :) Thanks for sharing.

You are the bomb dot com! seriously Ren, how did you get so fab? the hot pink lip with the more subtle eye is my fave.

slvrlips said...

Ren, I'm loving all the looks espcially the smokey I thik its because I love and wear the lip combo all the time and you look is super fab as well.

Question, Does the MUFE correctors blend well or are hard to blend?
