NYC Skyline Photo Shoot

By KatieAlves
1K Favourites
I did a photo shoot with Simon Hammond [link]
and I did the make-up for it! It was my first professional make-up job and I think it went amazingly! I'll put up some pictures that he did, but here is a simple picture I took to show the make-up!

It's the New York City skyline, with the water reflection on the eyelids!

Funny thing was, we used my bedroom as the set (not in this picture)! Apparently my millions of posters wasn't a waste of time!

Model: Eli
(it's not me for once! haha)

Colours, as always, are much brighter on my facebook and tumblr.

Now this looks interesting. Honestly I know nothing bout makeup (seeing as I'm a guy, all I know is that not all women know how to use makeup... but those that do know they know.)
This does seem to be a work of art in itself.
The detail in your artwork here is very nice, the colors look pleasant. The blues do bring out the eyes of your canvas so to speak.
This is a very interesting way of expressing oneself that I have not seen before, but I have to admit that I do like the creativity and the detail and hard work that has gone in to it.
Very nice and creative work.

If you're going to use make-up, might as well be brave and bold. This was a good idea.

this really is amazing. although i think that you could've made the sunset fade a little instead of it just ending there, in the middle of her forehead....

In real life it did, but the camera took the faded colour away. It's a lot brighter and vibrate in real life!

Awesome idea, and I love the way the corners of the eyes were incorporated, but I have one suggestion for the future: the nose/forehead would have been improved had the pink been blended more. The sudden cut at the top of her nose is very awkward.

You're the most awesome person ever, just sayin'
jana-Z95's avatar
wow, that's so amazing!
but to be honest, i think it'd suit you better, because of your hair colour..
but anyway - it's totally awesome :heart:

Haha! Well thank you! :D
She has a bit longer of a face then me, so it really works with her, but yes, red hair WOULD look better with it! :nod:
