Autumn Leaves photoshoot

Very experimental, yes. I had a lot of fun working on this, though. It was executed fairly quickly on top of a shoot with 3 other makeup looks.  Malia Schmidt models, photographed by Michael Zaugg

Malia’s eyes were done with UDPP in Greed, MAC Greensmoke, Sugarpill Goldilux, UD Half Baked, UD twice baked, UD Sellout, La Femme Bisque, Buxom lashliner in Leatherette and Buxom mascara, and natural falsies.
(the eyes were layered over previous looks, too, so this may be tough to explain or duplicate)
She is wearing Graftobian cream foundation thinned out, NARS Casino bronzer, and NYX lipgloss in Miami babe.

Leaf detailing used Sugarpill Tiara, goldilux, and magpie, and Mehron metallic powder in Bronze.

      Nice! I have to admit—the NYX lipglosses are nice. And every model I’ve put them on has commented on how yummy they smell.

      I had fun on this shoot–Malia is gorgeous on camera, and it’s a pleasure putting makeup on her. I don’t get to use my metallic colors much, but I was happy with how this came out.

      Thanks! I don’t get to use my metallic powders often, because it’s a bit much for daily wear. It’s fun using them for stronger effects, though.
