This is an art piece I created with the help of Nicole, an amazing friend, a phenomenal make-up artist & on this occasion a stunning model. The image came from us testing a few makeup looks to use in the future, but Nicole was able to pull it off so well & looked FABULOUS so we had to get a few shots right then!
I was so excited about the first image that I decided last minute – about 2 minutes before the contest deadline – to upload it to a Photo Of The Day contest on MODEL MAYHEM – a site for photographers, models, makeup artists, clothing designers, etc. to meet, collaborate & discuss all things beauty & fashion. I was encouraged when I got a handful of votes at the very beginning putting me in the lead, but I was ecstatic when I held the lead all day and finished in 1st place!! I’d say not a bad start to my Memorial Day weekend!
This is a screenshot of the top 4 entries for May 27, 2011. There were so many other amazing images and I can’t tell you how flattering it is when complete strangers love my work and are willing to vote for it!
Below is another beautiful image we were able to create while we were testing new beauty looks. I’m lucky to be able to work with such lovely & talented people like Nicole!
