Beauty Breakdown: Dancing in Color

This is Ericka.
She goes down in my books as one of the most carefree models that I’ve ever worked with.  This is our third job together… the photographer wanted full make up in casual clothing with her in motion. Erika is a trained dancer and was up to the task.
Her makeup is BRIGHT:
There is absolutely no doubt about  that. Even I sat back when I got the pictures … lol. But I’m going to roll with it. Looking back, maybe I should have done more… or LESS! But eh, it is what it is. And you can’t grow if you’re not honest.
Here’s what I used:
Face:
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Chestnut
Bobbi Brown Concealer in Almond
MUFE HD powder
Cheeks: Illamasaqua Blush in Nymph
Eyes:
MUFE Aqua Cream (the royal blue. I never remember the number)
SugarPill Pressed Shadow in Dollipop
MAC Saddle (in the crease and blended up to the brow)
MUFE lashes
Lips:
OCC LipTar in Hoochie
These pictures are raw. Meaning, they were taken, and emailed. No retouching (yet). I’m not sure if I love it, but it’s my work… so I’ll own it.

    Considering the circumstances, I'm ok. It's always a pleasure to work with our group and we're better for the experience we had on this shoot. If we were in a more controlled setting (or even our original setting), I would have done things differently as a photographer.Now we move on to the next shoot.

    I agree. I posted it because I wish to stay genuine. Good or bad… this is a journey.
