I took these pictures with my phone ( please excuse the quality) because I forgot my camera at home. 

So yesterday was a very exciting day for me because I finally did my first shoot with photographer friend 

Rose ( Her work is AMAZING), I will put a link to her site at the end of the post. I was suppose to have 

two models but the other lady cancelled :(. Sam was an awesome model ( beautiful woman) and luckly 

for me she had great skin, which meant less correcting/concealing. I used TEMPTU's S/B airbrush 

foundation for both looks. I think I am addicted to airbrushing ( the finish is always smooth and 

flawless) #random. Anyhoo I wanted the first look be natural yet have a really glowy/ radiant feel.......I 

forgot to mention hair is by Joanne (Another talented hairstylist/ makeup artist). Lord knows I cannot do 

hair to save my life + Sam's was uber lonnnnnng. Finally the last look was bright ( typical summer 

makeup) with peachy lips. I was extremely happy with the way the pictures turned out + the atmosphere 

was really calm and comfortable. I still have a lot to learn, but I can definitely say my confidence has 

improved a lot and i'm really proud of myself. If you ladies want me to post the products I used in detail, 

please leave a comment below :).
