Planets and Galaxies
Hey. Yo. Bo. Shmo. Long time no see! Anyway, yesterday I took a trip to the house of our good old friend Millie (of Dragonflies and Lightbulbs) and her sister Emma (of Casually Dazzling) to do a photoshoot- me and Emma have completely different style when it comes to photography: Emma is dramatic and costumey and fantasy-ish and I’m casual, teenagery and potraying everyday stuff. But we decided to do things her way, so Emma (who is a makeup sensation) decided on the theme of ‘Planets & Galaxies’ and immediately got to work on making my face look like a glitterbomb! I swear both these sisters have an overdose of talent: Emma has been studying drama at uni (I think), but can sing, dance and is a master of party dressing! Millie, is completely artsy: an amazing painter, sketcher, photographer who also happens to do tap dancing haha!
Above are the steps she went through to create the look: “I used mainly silvers, golds and blues; the fabulous Ophelia had greens, blues and purples in her hair which complimented the make up brilliantly. I started by applying silvery gold around the eyes then outlined with a light blue and then dark blue. I then applied silver swirls around her eyes using a glitter adhesive and a wider type of silver metallic-like glitter. I finished up by putting golds on her lips and outlining her eyes with gold before applying falsies (fake eylashes)- I then backcombed her colourful locks a little and gave her a few quiffy bits. Clothes= 3 tutus, blue bed sheet, and black scarf” -Emma.
Emma dressed me up and Millie took most (practically all) of the stunning, stunning, stunning photos below, on her beautiful Canon EOS Rebel T3 *OHHHHH*- she’s so AWESOME. And I just sat there looking fierce and intense and all. And occasionally laughing at myself and being foolish harh harh…Both the sistas edited them well (just several tweeks in the contrast and stuff!) The makeup was damn hard to get off my face and fake lashes made me feel like I wasn’t fully opening my eyes properly, BUT THEY MADE ME LOOK LIKE SUCH A QUEEN <3 <3 <3 Some of my favorites are below…
