When Reye asked me to do her makeup for her acting headshots, I jumped at the chance! It isn't every day that you get to work with clients who are as easy going, funny, and as sweet as this girl. Not to mention, Danielle Riley Aaron, our friend and photographer, is one of the best around.
Fortunately, this team is very flexible, and rather than our original plan of traveling to Tacoma from Poulsbo, we decided to find a location closer by since timing was a little tight. The new location was close enough, that after grabbing lunch at a great burger place, we had to walk about 20ft. for these pictures. Behind a T-Mobile is as good of a place as any, right?
Because of the nature of the photos, Reye was after a rather natural look. My favorite makeup look to do is one that just "enhances" features, so I kept things simple.
I started with a soft brown in the crease, and my all time favorite highlighter Mary Lou Manizer by The Balm all over the lid. Reye already has great lashes, so after a thin line of black gel liner, I just coated her lashes with the Loreal voluminous black mascara. So simple, and so pretty!
This girl has the most gorgeous skin, so other than a light application of Face Atelier Ultra Pro foundation, and some concealer under her eyes, she didn't need much coverage!
I used a Ben Nye pressed powder under her cheekbones that was a couple shades darker than her skin, to enhance her perfect cheekbones, and a peachy graftobian cream blush to bring in a little color. To finish off, I filled in her brows with a sigma brow powder, lightly lined her lips with my favorite NYX lipliner in the shade Peekaboo Neutral, and topped them off with some clear gloss.
Fun day, with two awesome girls!
