This shoot was for Erin Kathleen Couture's Fall 10 collection and she had 3 models that she wanted me to make look classic and fresh. I've worked with Erin before and she gathers tear sheets in her binder of what look she's going for, which makes my job easy! The makeup needed to look clean and beautiful to bring out the gorgeous pieces in her collection.
All three girls had the same look with natural light brown colors on the eyes and warm pink on the lips and cheeks with a glowy complexion.
I will say that I have a terrible time remembering to take proper "before" shots so in this before the model already has concealer on. ;)
This model, I learned, actually went to elementary school with my husband back in the day and married a guy who I graduated high school with! Small world.
I also forgot the proper before on this model too. She has on concealer and foundation here. But I mean, she already had perfect skin before this too so it's not much difference. XD
For her, we actually did a second "evening" look with brown smokey eyes and cherry red gloss.
And here was the beautiful jewelry we got to work with. Beads from Africa, India, and South America! So pretty!
The hairstylist worked on one model while I did makeup on the other side on another.
Here is a model with Erin herself, styling the outfits to be shot.
And here are all the pretty ladies after it was all over!
The girls were all super nice and lighthearted and come on, it's easy to make girls who are already beautiful inside and out look photo-ready. I know I always find before and after pics fascinating so I hope you all enjoyed seeing this little behind the scenes look at one of my makeup gigs!
