Lindi and Loren | Model Portfolio Shoot MakeUp and Hair Styling
At first glance these two ladies almost look like the same person or at least sisters, but they came together as friends to their Model Portfolio Shoot (and their MakeUp off course).
Lindi’s MakeUp & Hair look
For some reason I only have two photos of the one look that we did for Lindi and not of her other two looks during this shoot. She had gorgeous green eyes, which I complimented with what I would call a red berry (with a slight lavender undertone) eye shadow. And for this look I sweeped her hair across her forehead from a side parting, and then pinned it in a low braided bun on the one side of her head. I also finished of this evening look with blush and a nude lip gloss.
Loren’s MakeUp & Hair looks
Loren on the other hand had blue eyes, and for her first look (the black and white photos) I kept things simple with a soft brown smokey eye. I tied her hair up in a high ponytail, which I teased slightly (as well as her fringe) to go with the ‘punk rock’ look of her outfit.
For her second look we headed back inside, and did some bikini shots. Here I just added a bit of bronzer and highlighter to her smokey eye and cheeks. And I loosened and brushed through her hair with a bit of silicone (after the tease) for a natural ‘blowing in the wind’ effect.
We ended again with more of an evening look, where I added some more pencil liner to her upper lash line (not too much, as we did not want her to look much older). And I did her hair in a French roll type of style that goes all the way to the top of her head to end in almost a ‘pin-up girl’ curl in the front (fringe) section. For the last photo we also played around by adding black gloss down the middle of her lips.
