During this uncertain time in our lives amidst a global pandemic, we’ve all got to make adjustments to the way we live and finding our new normal modern lives of 2020. Teaming up with good friend and killer photographer Malorie Shmyr we decided to embark on a new exciting concept for both of us, a virtual photoshoot over facetime. My mind has been working overtime with possibilities, so sitting down and taking time actually get creative was super exciting, and a relief express myself artistically and take a break from all the bad news.
Wanting an organic and raw shoot experience, we chose the theme Gold and Pink and that’s it. Working with myself as the model for the first time in a while and with Malorie on facetime taking snaps as we went, the look adapted with us heading in an unpredictable direction. I got everything started by prepping my skin with super pink tones all over. Then adding depth to the look I intensified the pink around my eyes, cheeks and lips using Maq Pro, L’Oreal and NARS.
The real wow moment came when I suddenly was inspired to start adding the gold leaf to my face and the look finally felt complete! With some expressive poses the shoot really came together, I hope you enjoy this lock down fun that we had.
