This shoot was so much fun! My good friend and film director, Valeria Nova, asked me to take part of this commercial for Dermakine skincare products (I’ve never used the products, by the way). The commercial took a full nine hours to shoot, four outfit changes and four different makeup and hair looks.
The concept was to show the beauty of natural bare skin once all of the days makeup is off.
Look #1: Glam Goddess
Hair: I went for soft loose curls achieved with a 1″ flat iron. I teased the top of her crown for some volume and finished the look with some hairspray.
Makeup: I used nudes and light browns for the eyes, rosy pink cheeks, and shimmery nude lips. I sculpted her cheek bones and nose with a matte bronzer.
Look #2: Model Diva
Hair: Sectioned the hair in half, took a ‘mohawk’ section and teased it a bit more and pinned it in place then smoothed the sides to meet in the middle. This made it look like it all came together at once. Loose curls were touched up and topped off the look with a fun flowered head piece.
Makeup: To match the beautiful purples of the dress, I chose to use different shades to create this girly look. My favorite Maybelline shadow, Eggplant was the star in this. I tied it all in with a dark purple liner and black mascara, girly pink lips and cheeks.
Look #3: Red Carpet
Hair: Using the already half up look, the bangs were combed back and used hairspray to keep them in place. The bottom half was brought up to create a a loose bun, pinned into place.
Makeup: Using deeper purples and some black liner, we now had a beautiful purple smokey eye. Still pink but more nude-ish lips and a more sculpted cheek.
This was a first for me, having to work with what I had as opposed to taking off all the makeup and starting over because of the time constraints and small team. But it all worked out beautifully!
