Vintage Photoshoot with Kelsey 

One of my favorite concepts to style is the 1940's and 50's era. I love the Hollywood glamour that is portrayed in female attire, hair and make-up; everything is so polished and feminine. Our location for this shoot was at a cemetery in Vancouver with beautiful crypts and tombstones, so to fit the area, our concept was inspired by a lonely widow that lost her husband in the war.

Queen Of Hearts

Johnny Se Photography

Welp! Our "Queen of Hearts" shoot didn't exactly go as planned. With some extensive planning and styling, the model never showed...or even called for that matter. I've never experienced such poor professionalism in my years of styling. I understand people need to cancel, that is fair, but no call or e-mail...that's unheard of! Anyways, to ensure our time did not go to waste, Sara and I bit the bullet yet again, Thank god for Johnny's ability to make us shine! Enjoy!

Spring Time Shoots With Johnny

"Beach Bliss"

My most recent shoot with Johnny Se Photography, was a cold one. We managed to hike our gear down the mountain side to Wreck Beach in Vancouver. The wind was howling but the sun was shining, which from a photographer's stand point, isn't good. But, hey! At least it wasn't raining...

Here Comes Johnny...

So here's the deal, Johnny and I had planned a shoot for the previous Sunday. Everything was signed, sealed and delivered, until the model cancelled last minute. In hopes to save our time and effort, Johnny took the makeup artist, Sara and I out to Vancouver's Stanley Park to snap a few. I have to admit that I've never modeled before and I felt a bit awkward with the stares and poses, but Johnny was very patience and encouraging and in all it ended up being a great and exciting experience.

Beauty and the Bodacious

Black Sparkle French Tips

How to do:

Firstly, paint your nails with a base clear coat to reduce likeliness of staining of the nail. 

Once dried, paint two coats of a neutral shade of nail polish on your nails while painting the ring finger on each hand a solid black. It is important to let the nails dry completely before the next step. I would suggest letting them dry at least an hour for a flawless outcome. 

Next, cut small strips of scotch tape in order to position them directly across the nail. Tip: If you are using scotch tape, blot each strip sticky side down on your skin in order to reduce tackiness. This will decrease the risk of imperfections of the nude base coat.

           After the polish is completely dried, remove tape. Tip: The tips of your nails do not need to be perfect because we will later blend the harsh line with glitter nail polish.

            Lastly, using a sparkle polish, blend a very abstract line across the french black tips of your nails. Finish with a clear top coat.

Colours I Used: OPI "Black Onyx", OPI "Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?", OPI "Bring On The Bling", REVLON Clear Coat.

How to achieve...

Perfect Brows

Step One: 
Start with freshly groomed brows.

Step Two:
Paint on a thick line of concealer right under the brow line.  

Step Three:
Blend the concealer into skin while keeping a prominent line directly under the brow.

Step Four:
With a steady hand, starting a few centimetres from the inner part of the eyebrow, draw a line on the bottom following the natural arch of the brow. 

Step Five:
With a brow shade, fill in the section where you drew the line. Try Mac Brow Duo: Brunette, $27.50

Step Six:
Using an angle brush, make small hair-like strokes, extending the inner brow just past the corner of the eye.

Step Seven:
As a highlight, use a matte white eye shadow under the arch of the brow. For extra glamour, try using a light shimmer powder in a frost or goldie tone.

Step Eight:
Groom the brows to correct the direction of the hair.

Step Nine:
Using a lighter concealer than your natural skin tone, blend a small amount over the arch of the eyebrow for highlight.
