I've always wanted to do a photoshoot like this. I've always thought it would be fun to experiment with makeup so this gave Maria and I an opportunity to do just that.
This shot of Maria is now one of my favorite portraits I have ever taken (above). It's very Marina & The Diamonds / Electra Heart (comment below if you love Marina!)
I love this profile shot. You can see all the glitter we used in this one too. And let me just tell you, we used a ton. There's still some stuck to my face this morning. Maria picked up glitter gel that is specifically for face application at Michael's. So, because of that, we thought it would come off easier. Haha, oh well.
We attempted to take some photos together, but I'm awful at self-portraits so you can imagine how that went. Instead, I had her take a few of me when I was done shooting her. Oh, by the way, did you notice my scrunchie? It's from my shop and it's handmade by me! Go check it out.
Do I look like a little sparkly baby alien or what? I thought the American Apparel top I'm wearing here was the perfect choice for this shoot.
Let me know what you thought of these photos! I'm planning to do more photoshoot and get back into photography. I'm also going to work on doing more modeling.
Thanks for reading!
