BEHIND THE SCENES: Natural Bohemian Shoot

Hello Darlings!  How many of you think that natural-looking makeup is boring?  I used to think so but I have such an appreciation for it now, especially being a makeup artist and knowing the work that goes into it.  Just because you don't see color, doesn't mean there was no technique used in creating the look.  Natural can be so pretty and so romantic!  Anyhow, I'm sharing with you a shoot I did last month with Darbe Rotach (a music and lifestyle photographer).  He wanted a Bohemian feel so asked me to do a natural look on the model (Ashani Rivers).  I did the task though it wasn't exactly barely-there makeup.... it was more of an amped-up natural (just 'cause I'm in love with glamour ). 

Click below to see more photos from this shoot (both candid and professional)....

Looking at this Photo, the First Thought That Comes to Mind is "Innocence"....
I highlighted her cheekbones and the bridge of her nose...see the sun's rays bouncing off of them? :)

Some Candid Shots With My Camera:
I used about 3 different neutral eyeshadows from Make Up Forever to do the eyes.
Used Elf Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Warm Tan as a highlight (looks BEAUTIFUL on dark skin)....and used Make Up Forever #17 Espresso Eyeshadow mixed with #4 Black for contour.

I used a mixture of MUD Cream foundations on her face (did a custom blend to get an exact match for her skin tone).  I then set the foundation with L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder in C8.

I used Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX 13 as an undereye highlight...then
used MAC Mineralize Skinfinish LOOSE powder in Dark to set it..

We Shot on A Rooftop...
I love this shot of her gliding across the roof...
