I was inspired to do a look by heartbreak.

When we go through a break up (as a woman) honestly no one wants to get-up-and-get ready and look nice all one wants to do is be in their pajamas eat ice cream and watch a movie.

Or at least that’s what I did for about a good 2 years after one of my breakups; which was a miserable time and a wasted time spending crying for somebody else. It’s pointless I should have just taken day cried it all out and then let go, but no I tortured myself for 2 years that was ridiculous-now that I think of it.

So for my model’s look I wanted a very organic, but beautiful melancholy look. I wanted for the make up to POP and let her eyes tell the story.

So here I used ELF EYEBROW KIT to do her freckles. For her eyebrows I used the ANASTACIAS PENCIL in Medium. Her lips, a very bold color off camera, JEFFREY STAR’s 714 Velour Liquid Lipstick. I used rose water to set everything.

I am very happy with this look.

Here are some candid shots:

I am pretty much obsessed with this look.

I got inspiration from a Pinterest post and I ran with it. Also I very was very much inspired by a song that my mom’s uncles and cousins used to play at family parties and I just wanted to bring my own touch to it.

My sister and I went to scour the city to find a graffiti wall or a mural wall but instead we found ourselves passing through a cemetery and since there was plenty of sun light I decided to have a photo shoot right there in the cemetery.

I find the pictures to be spectacular and it all has tied together to do the perfect mirage and vision that I wanted to accomplish.
