Some Photography and Two Looks: Gold and Silver Smokey-ness

There ARE two looks in here, I promise! Last weekend, my friend, Amanda, and I made plans to take pictures. I really enjoy taking pictures and she really enjoys modeling, so it works out. I've been doing a lot of really traditional photography lately, which is good, but I miss doing the more arty type stuff from time to time. This was meant to remedy that. For the first part of the day, I just took some rural looking pictures of her around my barn in my pasture. Here's a couple of those:
This last one really shows her true personality haha

Now, the second part is where SHE took over. We set up a really REALLY pathetic studio in my house and took some of her pictures. Some of them are of me, yikes. Anyway, I did both her makeup and my own and it turned out looking pretty good.

-Sugarpill "Goldilux" applied wet all over the main lid
-Aromaleigh "Viburnum" in crease and lower 1/2 of lashline, blended way up
-Persephone Minerals "Pegasus" applied wet on inner lower lashline
-Kat Von D tattoo liner on upper lashline

Clinique blush in "Smoldering Plum" on hollows of the cheeks

-Morgana Cryptoria "Wisteria"
-Keihls nude lip gloss layered on top to tone down the coolness of Wisteria

-Sugarpill "Tiara" applied wet on main lid
-Shiro Cosmetics "Ganondorf" in crease/outer half of lower lashline
-Sugarpill "Lumi" applied wet to inner corners/lower lashline
-KVD tattoo liner pen
-Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara

-Revlon "Mulled Wine"
-Morgana Cryptoria "Wisteria" directly in the center for dimension

We were trying to go for the gold vs. silver thing. I really like putting makeup on other people, it's fun to see how different colors look on people with different eye colors and complexions. I personally think Goldilux looks amazing on her. Just for fun, here are a few silly pictures from the Amanda-directed photoshoot. Try not to laugh :)

Sorry for the picture overload! Have a lovely Sunday! :)
