Hmm, I’ve always wanted to do a look like this~ Complete with hair and makeup, now all I need is the correct setting and dress 🙂 You’ll notice the background is a tad different, I’ve moved my “studio” equipment (aka two cheap lamps and foam core reflector) into a separate room (yay I can walk around in my bedroom again!) which unfortunately has next to no white walls nor natural light :/ So I’m going to have to start figuring out ways to simulate the wonderful white walls I have in my bedroom 🙁 No, worries, it’ll figure something out, one thing I love about photography 😉
In the meant time enjoy, and I included a quick tutorial on how to style my hair 😀 Hope it helps!

Prime your face, apply your foundation and conceal any discolouration. Set with a face powder.
Apply a bronze to the hollows of your cheeks, then a matte burgundy rose coloured blush to the apples of your cheeks. Use a matte highlighter to your cheekbones. We’re trying to contour our face to sharpen the look.
Prime your lids, then using a white eyeliner pencil, colour in the inner corner of your eyes, brow bone and blend. Take a white shimmery eye shadow and apply over the white eyeliner. Next take a medium to light red-copper-ish eye shadow and apply all over the lids, extended into the crease. Take some of this colour on to the lower lash line. Take a medium to dark burgundy eye shadow and apply into the crease, blend towards the brow bone and wing it out.
Next take a black eye shadow and blend into the outer corner of your eyes. Blend the colours to ensure there are no harsh lines, but make sure that the gradient effect is still obvious. Next take the black eye shadow and fill in your eyebrows lightly. Then take the same eye shadow and line your upper lash line. Don’t need to be 100% accurate, we want to smoke it out just a bit.
Take a gel black liner and go over the black eye shadow with a more intense and precise line. Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara. Finally apply false eye lashes.
Line your lips with a dark red lip liner and fill in. Then take an intense red lipstick and go over the liner with a lip brush.
Easier than it seems! Give yourself a side part (use a clip if needed) then curl your hair with a curling iron. Once done, take each curl and roll it back up towards your hair and pin. Do this with the rest of your hair to complete the look.
