February Makeup Portfolio Photo Shoot

I can't believe how time has flown by and how much I have neglected my blog. I am so pleased at how my photo shoot turned out and to have gotten to work with such incredible talent. I had a vision of strong makeup in an outdoor setting and I think that was captured well in these photos. I admit it was a bit scarey to put myself out there with a few of these looks, but that is how I feel I will grow as an artist. I wish I could have blended a bit more, but for times sake could not. Overall, I think the models, hair, makeup and photography are amazing and I am so proud of these images. Photographer Julia Varga of Julia Varga Photography was a true pro and captured these beauties with amazing uses of light. You can visit her Web site at http://www.juliavarga.com/ and her blog at  http://juliavarga.wordpress.com/ is so inspiring. The hair was done by Kylie and team at Rejuvenation a Hair Salon http://www.rejuvenationahairsalon.com/ and makeup by yours truly. I did end up using RCMA foundation on all models and the NYX lip colors from my previous blog and I noticed on set that I wish they were more matte but still did the job well. I also used Naked Cosmetics pigments on the eyes which are incredible and I promise to blog about soon. The past few months have been spent traveling to makeup shows and MAC master classes to educate and motivate me for the upcoming wedding season so lots of exciting new things are in the works. Here are a few photos of the shoot:
