Yummy411: The Work 2


[ETA] This was a fun shoot! The crew came together and did our thing. Two girls would be over at the hair station, while I had my chair and station set up, rotating models. Once the models were done, they would go upstairs to the 'set' and work! work! work! Not standing out in this set (but can be seen in the background of the bottom last shot) was a male model who was more or less of a prop for this scene. While I had my ideas set for each girl, I wasn't aware that a male model would be involved. I was asked to give him abs for the shot. *gulp* I knew the concept, but just had never done it. I took a crack at it and it worked! Then being rather fair skinned and coming out of the winter blues, I had to improvise and give his skin some warmth on his legs! I mixed up some oil and dark foundation and rubbed it on-- that worked!... oh the life of a male model! Each model was supposed to have a rather sweaty, humid look so they got baby oil treatments and for their faces my special solution (fix plus and some bronze shimmer!). Great energy, great work pulled in from everyone!

I love love all of their looks! What did you use to get a nude lip on the darker model? Its fab!

yummy411 said...

hi islandcutie! thank you! For a nude lip with the darker model Rahel, I'm pretty sure I used MAC's Hug Me lipstick. I had two nudes lip colors I was relying on. One was Hug Me lipstick and the other is a discontinued MAC lip lacquer called Love In.. which to me is the original product for the new limited edition Bonus Beat lipglass that's currently in stores with the Heatherette collection. Thanks for stopping by and chiming in!
