Blue hair, don't care ::: Orange County Boudoir ::: Grace and Lace Boudoir

I can’t tell you how much I love it when a client comes in all tatted up with funky hair color to boot! I love that they use their body as their canvas for their art. It’s so much fun to shoot! So when Miss A walked in our door, you know I was excited as hell to photograph her!

“YYYAAASSS!! That is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about Jeni and Sarah.”

“Their work is beautiful and they’re providing us with much more than pictures, so much more. If you're feeling self conscious and hesitant to invest in yourself, please know you're in great hands and you'll want every image they show you.”

“Thank you ladies for instilling a confidence that I didn't know I had.”

Some Vintage Flare

I love it when I get to do something just a little bit different. Not that I don't LOVE a smokey eye and a nude lip, I mean ,that's my most favorite thing in the whole wide world! A bold red lip though, is empowering. I've been doing Courtney's makeup for years now, and she never wants anything less than bold, striking and daring. I like that about her.

So, what I was thinking for Court was a little bit Elizabeth Taylor, a little bit Dita Von Tease. I knew she could own it. 

For her face, I primed it with Maracuja oil. I used smashbox primer all over so she would not get oily. I started on her eyes and used a light brown in her crease as a transition shade. I then used a darker brown to deepen it up. I put a vanilla shade on her lid and used bobbie brown gel liner to give her a sultry wing.  For her under eye, i kept the water line clean and used a brown shadow close to her lashes. I used champagne pop for her inner highlight and slightly on her brow bone. I put on some mascara and lashes to complete her eye makeup 

I used tarte amazonian clay for her foundation and contoured with Bobbie brown foundation. I used tarte shape tape under her eye to conceal. I then set her face with Laura Mercier translucent powder. For her blush, I wanted to keep it simple so I used a muted pinky beige blush. I highlighted with Becca champagne pop on top of her cheek bones, her cupids bow and down her nose. For her lips I mixed a darker red and a brighter red color to give courtney a perfect vintage lip. I then set her face with urban decays all nighter spray and that was it! I think she looked fab!
