Quick Mock Photoshoot: Photography & MUA by moi!

In the spur of the moment this beautiful model and I decided to do a mock photoshoot. All I had was 20 minutes to find an outfit (out of her NON-EXISTENT closet), do her MUA and find proper lighting. She just turned 20 and wanted some new pictures.. I figured it was her facebook profile pic..LOL

Whenever your an MUA you have to work with strong-willed people. I really wanted to do a nude or red lip but she wasn't having it!

I'm so mad I didn't take a picture of her eyes.. It was really smokey and nice.. The long bangs aren't helping :|

On the face:
MAC matte gel primer
Makeupforever HD foundation in 178
MAC Mineralized skinfinish in Deep Dark

On the eyes:
Maybelline blackest black gel liner (as a base)
MAC carbon on the lid
MAC Swiss chocolate in the crease
MAC naked lunch as a highlight
Silver eyeshadow in the corners

I'm really loving that Makeupforever HD foundation! It captures amazing on camera!! No sparkles.. No zinc ashy face..lol. Just a flawless canvas.

*For reference this was shot without a flash using a Fuji HD camera.
