Title taken from Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ because I was blasting 1989 throughout the shoot.
So it’s been a while since I uploaded one of these.
This was only my second studio shoot (the first was such a disaster I never put up the photographs), so I was so happy with how this one turned out. The photographs have been put up mostly in chronological order, so you can see how I built up the makeup as the shoot went along. The entire process (with four different outfits and a lot of experimentation) took about an hour and a half, and resulted in four hundredish photographs. Took me a really long time to pick the pieces that I liked best, and then even longer to edit them. (It was not fun photoshopping the cystic acne on my chin, even my foundation couldn’t clear it up). Also I learnt how terrifying it is to look at HD photographs of yourself. It turns out that I have acne and hair in places I never knew.
I also used falsies! I feel like announcing that because I so rarely ever do. I’m always afraid that they’d look incredibly unnatural, but, as I’m surprised to find every time I wear them, they’re hardly visible on the camera. Maybe I can go find something more dramatic now, i really loved the kind that wing out, they always look gorgeous on camera.
Had much fun, can’t wait for the next shoot.
