head shot

BOLD Dark Blue Eyeshadow - Makeup and Photography by Veronica

In my spare time I have been working on improving my photography skills. Here are some photos from a recent session with this lovely model Seinne. Like me, she also an OC local!

I wanted to try a look that was new for her, so we went with this dramatic dark blue/purple smoked out eyeshadow with a little sparkle. I placed individual lashes for a "less fake" but FULL fringe. Her skin was pretty flawless to begin with; I just helped to bring out her skin to a smooth, almost buttery finish using my favorite Kett Fixx creme correctors and foundations. The glow on her cheeks was achieved using MAC soft n gentle. To get that super shiny lip, I mixed some Mehron metallic gold powder with OCC clear lip tar.

 

 

I hope you enjoy the photos! Will be posting more from recent shoots soon!

Beauty Photography

One of my personal projects I have been working has been to learn and practice beauty and head shot photography. I have picked up a lot from working with photographers and even getting some one on one help with the post production of an image. Aside from that, there is so much information available online to learn just about anything. 

I thought I would make a post sharing some of my favorites from my recent mini photo shoot sessions. All makeup, hair, photos, editing was done by me. I love the entire process that results in the final image, and I find that improving one of these skills helps give me insight about another. As always, I will continue to learn and grow and maybe my next post like this will show marked improvements. For now, enjoy these photos!
