Behind-the-scenes: French jewelry spread

It’s been some time since I updated my online portfolio for make-up. A lot of the time it’s easy to just do gigs without keeping track of the photos!

Here’s sharing some photos of a female magazine shoot which I did make up for. The jewelry was so beautiful! No wonder each brand’s PR rep had a security personnel with them… Definitely tempting to just grab something and run for it ;)

Behind-the-scenes shots with my trusty phone camera (the final shots are further down):

Photographers always have a knack for making a shot look so so great. From the final shots, would you have guessed where the photos were taken?

Here are some of the shots from the final spread. The team was such a joy to work with!

Some tips for dark lips:

  • Be sure to exfoliate lips to get rid of dry, dead skin. Matte and dark lipsticks tend to accentuate any unevenness or flaking
  • You may want to keep the rest of the face quite clean (without strong colors) to prevent looking too over the top

More next time!
