Portfolio Building W/ Studio Allure Photography

My awesome photographer friend Dwain helped me out recently, I have yet to have my work photographed professionally and he fixed that! So grateful for his help. He has always been one of my favorite Columbus, Ohio photographers he does awesome work. So I asked my boss if I could use her daughter as one of my models and a close friend (may as well be family) let me use one of her daughters as well for the shoot. These are some of the photos from the day. The finished product pics are the last two.

Photographer: Dwain Thomas with Studio Allure

Before and After : My mom

My mom has MS and has had it for years, she fell asleep probably 15 times during the 40 min I did her makeup. I took the before picture after I had already started highlighting her face with foundation hence the light spot on her forehead haha. I used RCMA foundation, ben nye banana powder, a darker shade of powder foundation for setting her contour, nars dolce vita blush, mac dip down gel liner and elf brow powder on her brows, I used a brownish lip liner and mixed 3 dif lipsticks to get the color it is,  I just smoked her eyes out some with black track gel liner and a brown makeup forever shadow. Lorac bronze shadow from the pro palette on her inner corners.

Playing in Makeup. Glitter Cut Crease

I only did half of my face :p Bored playing in glitter :) I LOVE occ glitters. They dont irritate your eyes at all either. I use lash glue to make it adhere better. It rubs right off easily with waterproof makeup remover. I use the sephora brand one. I was also playing around with Milk of Magnesia for a primer so if you happen to see white patches on the other side of my face thats what it is :) I was gonna do my whole face but got lazy. I use RCMA foundation palette in a few dif shades for my foundation highlight and contour. Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz in brunette and ELF powder in med. Urban Decay smoked palette and a few smashbox colors. Lashes are from ebay.
