Makeup Bar - Vixen party

Hi Bellas!


I wanted to show you some pics of a Makeup Bar I did a few weeks ago. I enlisted fellow blogger Joy from RockStarMuA to come out and assist. It was a lot of fun but tiring too! This makeup bar had a vixen theme...the girls took a lot of picture in lingerie as gifts to their boos for Valentines Day. I couldn't show too many of the pics out of respect to their privacy, he he.

Check out the setup:



Before the madness



After - this is what happens when you're trying to hurry and do multiple ladies at once!



Check out the tat I did. I cropped the picture to give some deceny to the shot. What you can't see is that I did two of these tats...one on each booby! The stencil is an ink transfer filled in with Temptu Dura Color. Looks real huh?




Here I am filling in the tattoo.



Here's one of the ladies I did. She informed me from the beginning that she doesn't like makeup, lol. I knew that was going to be a challenge. I convinced her to go with a smokey look using grays instead of black to tone it down. One thing she told me which I thought was funny was "Did you notice that there are two dark lines on my nose?" He he, I told her "Yup, it's to contour your nose." Fun times.


Here I am touching her up after a costume change. She was wayyyy taller than me so I made her stoop down and balance on my shoulders lol.






I only have one of the shots to show you cuz a lot of the poses were lingerie shots...trying to keep this blog PG!




Here's another before and after. I had worked on this client before at another makeup bar. She wanted some fun color this time. My fav! I really worked on her skin to give her a new canvas.



What you couldn't see were her shoes...tres mignon!






This is a shot of me and joy after the job...tired! lol



Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

You did an excellent job on that last woman- I think you made her look about 10 years younger! BTW- I think you could fool a veteran tatt artist w/ your replicated version.. HOT!

GiGi said...

Hey Ren,

I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on lighting. I just can't get it right. Is there a certain vanity mirror you use?

Thanx you are just beautiful.

This is awesome Ren! You shoulda taken some sessy pics too ;-)

I can't believe that the wedding is next week. Are you excited?! I'm looking forward to having you be a part of my day(s) ;-)!

Jo said...

hi renren, i'm just a lurker. hope you don't mind. just wanna say you do such outstanding work. the lady's nose looks so different and so defined wow!

That tattoo IS quite impressive - it's even got that slight blue undertone that all real, slightly faded tattoos get :)

Minor, minor nitpick though: it's upside down. It's the Chinese character "Xu", which is a fairly common last name...
