Photoshoot with Kassia Pics2:54 PM
As promised, here are some of the photos from the photoshoot I had with my amazingly talented photographer friend, Kassia. She is the same photographer who took my wedding pictures and I absolutely adore her as a person too. ^^ We decided to just hang out for a day and get some interesting makeup headshots so I only wore one simple outfit: plain black tube top and floral skirt, and I also had my leather jacket.
After feeling like blogger seriously pixellates my photos, I have decided to upload my pics from this post to photobucket to do her photography justice. I profusely apologize for watermarking all over her work, and in respect to her, please do not take or use any of these photos without her and my permission. ;)
We started off with basic beauty shots. Very natural makeup, no jewelry, no fixing hair. For this look I used MAC Studio Sculpt foundation in NC30 and model 21 lashes in style #21 (my FAV boxed lashes! so natural!).
Without changing too much, we developed a totally new look by adding Kassia's red L'Oreal lipstick. I also lined my waterline with a nude pink to brighten the eyes.
Then we decided to totally amp up the look with a Japanese girly-punk concept. Since we originally were just intending to do headshots, it was completely spontaneous but I think it came together well! This is probably one of my favorite photoshoot series' that I've ever done. I added a hot pink clip-in hair extension and curled my hair (see Japanese Hair Curling Tutorial). For the eyes, I used my Ben Nye Grande Lumiere Palette for a rainbow-look and added extra black eyeliner especially to the inner corners of the eyes for a cat-eye effect. Lips were NYX Round lipstick in Power, my favorite nude-lavender lippy.
Kassia, thank you so much for your grace and talent while you work! I had so much fun getting lunch and bubble tea, then shooting with you. What a great day! I can't wait until next time. :D
