Nail Pro Cover Shoot
www.doritthies.com. The theme for the nails was "jewels", which is right up my alley, and I wanted the makeup to reflect that. Our model Djosefin@photogenics, was very patient! I started with Make Up For Ever Gold Metallic Powder over her entire lids, to create a gilded base that would act as a sort of "prism" when mixed with other colors. After applying her base color, I wet my brush and swept Urban Decay eyeshadow in "Goddess" an intense deep blue with flecks of glitter thru it over her base color and under her eyes. I then brushed Obsessive Compulsive loose color in "Heroic", a shimmery deep cobalt pigment lightly over the entire eye, and swept Make Up For Ever Star Powder #90947 in the inner corners of her eyes and up to her brow bone. Djosefin then sat very still while I glued tiny individual crystal "jewels" on her eyes. I finished the entire look with a sprinkling of deep blue glitter from Make Up For Ever to add even more sparkle, cause I was having way too much fun, and why hold back when you can bring the bling, right? More to come in September!
