Summer is finally starting to settle in. Bright and long sunny days make it so easy to enjoy the outdoors and have a more laissez-faire attitude towards beauty.
We recently worked with beautiful Elizabeth in a series showcasing lovely and feminine clothing in a setting that was like a small Secret Garden. Photographed by Shannon Touchstone and styled by Danielle Brown, Elizabeth easily transitioned into a very soft and almost playful self.
Because we were photoshooting outside in very humid weather, I decided to work with nature’s canvas and utilize the dewiness in her skin and flyaways to add a carefree almost bohemian feel to her look.
Her hair was was prepped with Bumble and Bumble Prep Spray and City Swept Spray to reveal texture, prime it for the waving wand heat, and to add a bit of weight.
The hair was then waved with a Paul Mitchell Neuro Unclipped 1.25″ Cone counterclockwise in the same direction away from the face beginning at the front hairline.
The hair was then finger raked to loosen the waves. I added two pumps of Wella Oil Reflections to add shine, reveal highlights and lowlights in her hair color and to add a bit of polish. I also used this lightweight non greasy oil on her legs and arms for a subtle glow.
Elizabeth has great skin and I wanted to enhance with a bit solar protection and color. I used Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Medium in the center of the face and shade Medium/Deep on the perimeter of the face to add a bit of lived in tan effect.
The lips and cheeks were tinted with YSL Volupte Tint-In-Oil in shades Drive Me Copper and Oh My Gold. I love these lip tints for a sheer wash of color with a non sticky feel. No lipliner needed!
Summer is all about being social with a casual and easy breezy feel. I hope you enjoy these products as much I did!
