23 Dec Beauty Session with Ixchel and Caroline
With the cold weather upon us I love to explore my creative energy with doing more studio based shoots. I have a deep love for beauty editorials and fashion shoots. Carolyn, my close friend and stylist, and I always come up with creative concepts to keep our creative juices flowing. Carolyn had two makeup looks she wanted to try and I was all in. These looks are completely produced from Carolyn’s vision and I was happy to be the one to capture them. The models we used for this shoot were the two gorgeous AMTI models, Carolyn and Ixchel. It was an absolute pleasure working with both of these skilled and talented models.
For this look I picked a purple backdrop to compliment the makeup that Carolyn applied to Ixchel. The purple colour also complimented Caroline’s look too which was a nice win. I instructed both models to wear a tub top because I love showing bare shoulder when I do beauty headshots.
Carolyn did an incredible job with Ixchel’s makeup. I loved that she also added gold on her hand, neck and shoulders. That was a nice touch. In the third photo you can also see the gold spark tear-like shimmer under her right eye. Carolyn is super creative and I love seeing what her mind will come up with.
AMTI models are all very professional and are very skilled with posing. They also take direction very well. Ixchel knew how to pose with her golden hand perfectly. Only one of her hands were golden. Hand posing is not super easy. If posing with your hand is done wrong it looks stiff, claw-like and unflattering. Both models nailed the hand posing. Caroline’s look was more of a glam look with a high pony tail. I absolutely love the lip colour that was used on Caroline. It definitely suits her. The lashes used for both models are from Laash Lash. These lashes can be used many times over if taken care of properly and cleaned after each use with care. Lashes really add the nice final touch to a professional makeup look.
