Last week Jesse James Photography and I did a photo shoot with our friend Kata. What a great model to work with. We did a nautical theme so we headed down to Port Dalhousie. Here is what we came up with.
I recently had the “itch” to do some hair and makeup for a photoshoot. Having a photographer boyfriend (Jesse James Photography) really makes things easy! We came up with a vintage-inspired theme and asked Wendy from Wendy Alana Photography in Brantford to come along and shoot with us. We found a fantastic model who went above and beyond especially in the minus 10 weather! Here are a couple shots from Jesse:
With all of the rain we have had over the last few weeks, it’s been really hard to get outside and do a photo shoot. Solution? Do an in-studio shoot instead. The issue with in studio opposed to on location is coming up with creative ideas. While doing a replica of an old hollywood shoot isn’t exactly fresh or new, it is to us. Jesse (Jesse James Photography) and I decided to put our ideas together and see what we […]

I’ve been a bad blogger! I promised to write a blog every day of September for Enchantment Makeup Artistry’s September beauty month. However, I made a promise I apparently wasn’t very good at keeping. To try and makeup up for the lack of blogs I’ve been writing I’ve brought in a guest blogger for our post today.

Step 1 : Polish and Seal Nothing looks worse then lipstick on dry cracked lips. Not only is the sight unpleasing, but lipstick does not adhere to flaky lips. Colour will stay best on a smooth base. Use a lip exfoliator or even an old toothbrush to brush away any loose pieces of skin. My favourite trick is to mix a little baking soda with a splash of lemon juice. It will fizz up a bit, apply to your lips […]
