Today my stylist/Wonder Woman/hair wizard Ms. Jena Vue tagged team with me on a photoshoot for an Asian petite model’s portfolio building shoot. We did many different looks but I only remembered to take a couple of pictures towards the end of the shoot. It’s okay though because at least I am being more consistent with the documenting! Her makeup is pretty dramatic and heavy because of studio lighting (studio lighting is very bright and per photog’s request), but Jena did such a wonderful job on the hair that I had to show it off! And she is my go-to gal for hair up-dos because she is so fast and skilled that it’s a shame that I only get to use her whenever my clients request for a stylist. Maybe I should start including packaged deals! For her makeup, we did a really bold dark brown and glitter smoky eyes with ruby lips. Red lips and dramatic eyes are not a big no-no despite what some artists/stylists might tell you. I think if you feel that you can rock it, why the heck not? There are far worse crimes against artistry than doing a bold look such as that. Here are some photos, enjoy!
This weekend I had two back to back Asian brides. My first bride is Michelle, who opt for a more glamours, dramatic lips and eyes look for her wedding. Those red lips will look timeless and so elegant in photos. My second client is bride-to-be Stephanie for consultation, who really wanted me to create more depth with her eyes without looking like she’s wearing a whole lot of makeup, and wanted a muted fusia color for lips (great color btw, as it makes teeth look whiter!)
