My Little Photo Shoot Experience!

                              Hello beauties! I did a small little photo shoot on the 13th of March. It was one day when one of my friends came and asked me if I was willing to do make up for her friend's portfolio. I thought it was a great chance even though there was no talk of payment. I mean, I'm no pro and it would definitely be worth the experience right? Plus, I get to share my work! :D
                     So, things were a little mess because it was a bit unplanned for me as I did not know the others! Plus, I was walking with my huge vanity box on the road. It looked as though I was carrying a bomb! :P. My friends came with a scooter to pick me up and we reached our venue. It was somewhere inside my area, a tannery. It was quite spooky looking to be honest and I was wondering if I was actually going for a photo shoot! :P

                    It took a long time for the photo shoot to start and the weather was not in our favour. My models wanted something simple and not very complicated. So, I settled down for some quick ideas as time was just slipping away! Out of all the thousand products in my vanity, these are what I used:



Model: ChiChi Dewan

The moment I saw ChiChi, I knew she had model potential!

Looking back at the photo shoot, I feel that my makeup was not that bad compared to the time I had in hand! I think these three models carried everything out so beautifully! The photos came out so fantastic thanks to Abel Wilson and his companions. I think ALL the photo's were beautiful!

After this photo shoot I learnt quite a bit. I learnt that it takes a whole lot of effort to make a successful portfolio. Trust me, even though it was little, it was absolutely time consuming and difficult. You need patience.. tons of it! I made new friends who are so nice and sweet even though I can be quite reserved and most importantly, team work. We all got together to make this photo shoot a success! I would even give credit to my good friend Li Ai Ling. She opened up a great opportunity for me and also, she was the amazing hairstylist behind the scenes. Her hand works like magic!

Overall, I would LOVE to do a photo shoot like this again because of the amazing experience!

If you have any queries about the make up or anything, let me know!

Much Love,

Emmy <3
