Photoshoot: Express Yourself!

Got up this morning bright and early for a photoshoot. I had only couple of minutes to do my makeup and decided to use the Mineralize Shadow from MAC’s Venomous Villans…


Omg, this is not a thing to be rushed. But I did it anyway. Ugh. Result:

No it’s not perfect. And yes, that’s a pimple (her name is Helga). But heck… that is not an easy formula to manipulate in 15 minutes. I had to get on the road! But here it is… and I promised to be honest.
On the rest of the face:
Iman Mineral Foundation Stick in Clay 5
MUFE HD Powder
Rock & Republic Blush in Call Me
Mac Venomous Villans Mineralize Eyeshadow in She Who Dares
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Deviant (blue)
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Covet (green)
Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara
By Terry Or De Rose
It was a rush job, but I made it to the gig on time! I was set up by the time my two models walked in. 
Meet Francesca:

…And Holly:

Both women were delightful … and complete color opposites in more ways than one. Francesca was warm toned… holly was so cool that I swear blue toned ANYTHING looked good on her. 
I’ll do the Beauty Breakdowns when I get the professional results. I took these with my bootleg camera.
Thus ends my exhausting, but fulfilling day. Now, I read somewhere that there was a contest and a giveaway on this blog…
