Glitter, Gold, & Glamour: Photo shoot /w Jessica Rose & Rachel Jones 1

Model: Jessica Rose HMUA: Rachel Jones (Using Motives Cosmetics)

No more teasers for this shoot, here is the final product of a recent photo shoot with Model: Jessica Rose and HMUA: Rachel Jones – B Pretty Hair & Make-up Artist. This photo shoot was put together as a part of revamping the portfolio. One of my favorite things to photograph is faces. There is so much about them that interests me, the curves, the lips, the overall structure and the stories behind the eyes. Every face is completely different and has their own features that stand out. Normally, I am shooting headshots & portraits for actors, entertainers, and business professionals so getting to be a bit more creative with the overall look was a ton a fun!

After posting a few teasers online and sharing them on F photography and modeling groups, the teaser images seemed to spark a lot of interest in the shoot and the look. A lot of people saying “I would love to do something like this!”. So, I decided to reach out to Rachel to see if she was willing to put together a brief write-up on the process and products used. Here’s what she had to say:

On our stunning model Jessica, I started with some skin prep, including the Perfecting Face Primer and Invisiline from Motives. This helps creates a solid base and makes pores and fine lines less visible. I then used Motives Cosmetics Liquid Mineral Powder foundation in Vanilla Cream. The focus was on clean, flawless skin, using the cream foundation quad in Light, I highlighted the planes of the face with the lightest two colours in the quad. On the eyes, I used the Motives Luxe Creme Eye Shadow in Brown Sugar as an eye base and the eye shadow palette in Demure. The liners used on the lower eye were Chocoholic Brown on the bottom and Little Black Dress on the upper lash line. The Essential Eye Brow kit was used to fill and shape the eye brows on our lovely model. Peach Beige was the blush used for a light, natural tint. Contour was enhanced with the dark shade from the Shape and Sculpt Duo from Motives Cosmetics. The lips were made luscious with Kiss Me Lip Shine and spotted with some of the Pot of Gold Glitter. Around the face, layers of small paper foils were placed, mixed with gold glitter from the local art store.”
