Amped Up Attitude

Presenting another series of shots from the photo shoot I did with Sam Green over at Samantha Green photography! This one features one of my favorite models, Sydney Nelson, who also happens to be an incredibly talented makeup artist. This is the second look I did on her today, and I took inspiration from the designer of the fabulous shirt she is wearing: Betsey Johnson.

You go Syd!
I made sure to capture the attitude in the design, carrying some of the colors of the shirt up into the makeup. Particularly for the eye makeup, I blended a few colors in a large shadow palette I have to imitate the lime-green with yellow undertones. Sydney vamped it up with some fabulous high heels and a feathered fan! First rule of thumb when it comes to taking photos of your makeup: When the model is enjoying herself during a shoot, it shows!

The lips and lashes were taken from the Marilyn image on the shirt - dramatic and bold! The lipstick was a deliciously bright fuschia pink from Elizabeth Arden cosmetics. I topped them off with a sparkle gloss from Too-Faced cosmetics, which gives a solid shine of sparkle right across the lips. As far as I'm concerned, anything related to Betsey should sparkle!


And don't forget to always bring the attitude! This is only look number two from the Pin Up shoot with Samantha Green! Keep checking back to see more of the gorgeous looks featuring makeup by Jordan Jeffrey, Hair by Talia Murchie, and Photography by Sam Green.
