Saving Grace

Yesterday the photo shoot for my portfolio went really well, everyone had a good day.

The photographer Mat Smith,, was excellent. I can highly recommend his services.

Sarah the hair stylist took my few garbled words of an idea and just made it happen, she is my wedding stylist. If you'd like to talk to her, send me an email and I'll put you in touch.

Here are two of the photos on Mat's Flickr page.

Used here: Barry M Fuschia and Black Dazzle dusts, elf blush and Barry M Fuschia mixed with elf clear lipgloss.  

The models were friends of mine I had collected together because of their beautiful features that meant that all I had to do was complement their beauty with the make up.

The Living Room in Oxford was our venue, they have an ultra swanky private bar called The Study which has the normal bar and booth arrangement but also three bed style areas where you can curl up with your mates and sip cocktails amongst the cushions and bolsters whilst laughing and chatting in the relaxed atmosphere. I think for my next birthday I am going to hire it for my party, definitely. Then it was all change, make up off and new make up on to go upstairs to the roof garden to take some stunning shots of the Oxford skyline as the sun was setting.

My most suprising and wonderful product that saved my bacon was a recent purchase of elf's glow powder in shimmer

The sculpt and shape duo I have by MAC was a little too orange for some of the models so this elf powder worked wonderfully for contouring and highlighting.

My other show stopper was Barry M Dazzle Dust in Hot Fuschia Pink

I can't wait to show you the photos from the day, they were amazing, I can barely believe that I (yes little old me) achieved it and my portfolio is going to look very good indeed, thanks to Mat, Sarah and the lovely models who all get to keep their photos ;)

I am planning another photoshoot sometime soon, those of you who are smirking whilst reading this know what I am on about....
