Before I went back to Japan I had Maria's photo shot. I met her anther film doing Bush makeup. She was main actor there. Since then she is one of my good friend! We had very nice and huge set this day. I also had good makeup place too. It was very excited day. I did couple of makeup and hair on her. This is I call "PINEAPPLE HAIR" shot. Very simple makeup and hair.

The theme this time in collaboration with the photographer was up I went to art school student was still sexy I like natural. It was much easier because I came to the models I wonder lucky image. Nosezu less color, pearls and finished in shine.

Yoomi is visiting from out of town and she wanted portraits that captured the spirit of Los Angeles in her perspective. USA is plastered with posters and she wanted to pose next to them.

Because the posters have a lot of bright colors, I recommended natural looking makeup that enhances her features. She told me she like gray tones for the eyeshadow and I put some pink hues to compliment her skin tone.

My makeup boosted her confidence and it didn't make her feel self-concious during the photo session with the photographer, TOTSPUPS, who is also based in Los Angeles, CA.

To see larger images, click on the photo. You can see how natural the makeup looks. Some photos are homage to Madonna who's album CELEBRATION drops today.

The photographer want to have blue light to make cold and sad image. I use accent color ROSE on lip to make mystery look.

The makeup is for black and white headshots. Black and white photography makeup is different from color photography makeup because the colors don't show in the final photo.

She had such nice face structure, big eyes, and sexy lip so I highlighted her features with shading and contouring. I spend most of my time on her base makeup and applied little bit of eye color and lip for good measure.
