playing the model (part ii)

photos by jason deetz; hair and makeup by sharell katelynn artistry

necklace and ring: borrowed from moorea seal (exact here), lashes: m.a.c. 34 lash (exact here), maybelline color molten eyeshadow in 'nude rush' (exact here)
lipstick: milani color statement lipstick in 'rebel rouge'

a few months back, i had the opportunity to collaborate on an 
editorial-inspired photo shoot. it was something totally new for me 
(and slightly out of my comfort zone), but i had a wonderful time!
this was my second time working with a photographer, so needless to say, 
i had no idea what the heck i was doing in front of the camera. 
thanks to sharell's talent in the hair and makeup department, 
and jason's easy-going demeanor, we were able to get some lovely photos! 

i shared our first look here, and i think i felt slightly more comfortable
(and a bit more like myself) in this second set of photos. having my hair down,
and being able to use it as a sort of prop // accessory, made all the difference!
i also love the pop of the bright red lips against the black backdrop. 
this milani statement lipstick, in the shade 'rebel rouge,' is incredibly
pigmented. it stayed on for the remainder of the day despite eating and drinking, too.
for less than $6, i think i need to pick up a few additional colors! 

i greatly enjoyed this collaboration with sharell and feel inspired 
to experiment more with my hair and makeup. i would love to try some 
different braided hairstyles (pinterest, here i come!). 

happy thursday, everyone, and have a wonderful rest of your week!
xoxo.
