Making up for lost time... A blog a day is no joke.
I love working with different people. I'm always surprised when they know my work or compliment it.
I perceive myself to be a minimalist; that aesthetic where makeup is concerned is not greatly treasured locally. The heavier the makeup the better, for most.
Enhancement is my love. However, I absolutely love some of the transformations I see on Instagram and Facebook. Before & after photos are my faves. Especially if the after is soft and pretty, not overdone, harsh or cakey.
So when Larry Mayers asked me almost two years ago if we could do a shoot together I was super excited. Anderson, told me he was a superb artist highly skilled in photography and he has worked with some of the best in the business.
So one early Sunday morning, 2 years after our initial conversation (lol). We finally got it together. Larry brought Melanie to me to have her face #modenized lol. I was floored, she has fascinating bone structure, poreless, even skin and a sparkling personality in one.
We did a nude eye with glam lashes and a Milani 'Best Red' lip. Contoured the hell outta her sweet cheeks, and added a rich, golden highlight.
Here is a sneak peek:
