Hello friends of 4O1! it’s our resident photographer Brian Wcislo a.k.a. boca =b just sharing a little photo shoot love.
A few weeks ago we assembled a team (photographer, mua, hair stylist & models of course) with the intentions of capturing 2 looks for 3 lucky girls. Our goal was to get a few beauty & commercial shots as well as capture a few funky ones while we were at it.
Below are a few images from our shoot!
Our Models were Angelica & Zakiya from Image International and Medina.
Here are some Beauty Tips for Models before a shoot courtesy of our MUA, Trish Solis. See more of Trish’s work here: www.elegantxpressions.net
72 hours before your photo shoot, avoid the following items (these items can give you oily skin and swelling).
– Red meat
– Spicy foods
– Retin A and Alpha Hydroxy creams
Drink lots of water, carry it with you everywhere you go, and keep sipping.
Exfoliate your skin at least once a week and also the morning of the shoot.
Have your brows professionally shaped and then keep them up by plucking the strays every few days. Pluck strays the day of the shoot.
Refresh your hair color a few days before your shoot. If you do not color your hair, try shades or a toner just a shade lighter then your hair to make it shine. If you need a trim, do it before the shoot.
Fingernails and toenails should be one length, well manicured, and the polish should be colorless or French.
All traces of makeup should be gone from your skin. All eyeliner and mascara should be gone. Your face should be clean and product free when you arrive.
Do not over condition your hair before a shoot. Do use your regular styling products to make your hair behave, as chances are the hair stylist will not be wetting your hair and not be able to use gels, etc. Your hair must be dry before you arrive at the shoot.
Avoid dry lips by putting Vaseline on your lips before bed and the morning of your shoot.
