Monday April 16th, I shot with Greg Cunningham for the first time. He lives in Jacksonville and we have been facebook chatting for..... what seems like forever! I had been waiting for him to come down to Miami so we could work together and finally he came down for a whole week. Courtney was our first model and we wanted her to have a strong androgynous look.
Then, on Friday April 20th we worked with Nicole @ FORD. I have been wanting to work with Nicole for such a long time, since before she got signed with Ford again because I love her unique look. But she also lives up north and comes down every so often, so when I learned she was coming down to Miami, I told Greg I wanted to shoot with her. Well, I definitely loved working with her because she is soooo nice and we laughed a lot which makes for a great shoot! She has a big heart and I really hope to see her in New York or LA doing it big! The look for Nicole was VERY organic and almost as if she had no makeup on really. The hair was to be messy and no perfect. The clothes were very sheer and white. The photo above was my favorite and looked like a painting to me.
After Nicole, Joanna @ Elite came in and I did wavy hair and clean makeup for her. I didn't stay for the shoot but Greg told me they couldn't make it out to the beach because the weather became crappy.
For our last shoot together, we planned a special fashion editorial. The stylist, Brandon Fogel brought these 10 inch heels!!!
Here was the first look straight from the camera. Jade @ NEXT was our model, which I knew she'd be perfect for this shoot since I had worked with her recently and she's just amazing. We had fun and she told me she wants me to do her makeup for her wedding, she's so cute I want to put her in my pocket!!!! haha
So the hair was obviously a super tight, super high placed ponytail. I used a bunch of different colored hair ties to create that tall standing up ponytail. The makeup was very pale, no blush at all. Because this shoot was going to have a lot of light on her, I contoured her cheeks a eyes a tiny bit and the main focus were her red lips which I used my lip tar in NSFW.
These were two other looks. Aren't Jade's lips to die for!? Let me tell you, these looked beautiful when we saw them on the computer and I'm super excited about them. Greg is going to submit them so keep your fingers crossed!
So that was my week working with Greg. It was so great because I felt so comfortable with him, like we had been friends for years! And Greg, if you are reading this, I forgive you for calling me Jennifer a couple of times, LOL. Greg listens to what you want and works with you and is so talented. If something needs fixing, he knows what needs to be done to remedy the situation.
Hope you all had a great week!
