Miss K came in to see Kristen Fonville for her first boudoir photo shoot almost a month ago. Her hubby's 35th birthday will be coming up soon and she decided to book this session as a surprise for him. I love that idea, don't you?! Because let's be real, what do you buy adult men? I have no clue.
Below are the makeup products I used for Miss K if you're curious. And she already had supa-fly curly hair and I can't claim that beauty as my own.
Nars radiant longwear foundation in Aruba, ColourPop pretty fresh concealer in Medium90W, Makeup Revolution Luxury Baking Powder in Banana, Benefit Toasted bronzer, ColourPop blush in Glass Slipper, ABH x Amrezy highlight, Morphe brow pencil in Latte, Sydney Grace shadows and Makeup Geek shadows on the eyes, Inglot black gel liner, mascara, Kiss Couture lashes in Teddy, and Rimmel lip liner in Epic topped with Morphe cream lipstick in Hey Sugar.
I also want to point something out that I'm not too proud of coming from an artist's standpoint. I don't even know if you would have noticed it as a non-trained makeup eye, but I don't know if it was me or if the shadows were speaking out that day because the bronzer I applied around her hairline looks rough in these "before and after" shots below. I swear they didn't look that way in real life. But I want to be completely transparent with you guys. Seeing things like this helps me grow as an artist and I continually want to make my craft better. Kristen didn't mention anything to me about it coming across bad in the photos she took, so I'm hoping it was just the shadow's fault.
Kristen let me know this weekend that Miss K signed a model release when she came into to view her final images, so I'm really excited to show her off to the world. I'm all about female empowerment and what better way to exclaim your sexy than something like this?!
ALSO, Kristen sends me some shots that show off the client's hair and makeup because obviously that's the asset I want to show off in my portfolio as a beauty artist. You know there's gotta be more up that magician's sleeve for the client's eyes only.
