I dream to be a movie star!

I'm extremely happy that I am actually sticking to my plan about doing more self portraits, I don't even know why I stopped in the first place.
In the past I have done self portraits but never really concentrated on the makeup... To be honest I'm more of a skincare girl and don't really pay much mind to makeup.. meaning I'm really no good at it. Recently I have been learning makeup techniques and of course I watch all the fabulous makeup artists at play during our shoots.

This self portrait was inspired by Marilyn Monroe, I wanted to create a real romantic movie star image. I took a tutorial on how to achieve her makeup look and it was more simple than I thought. Let me know what you think :)

Self Portrait time

So as discussed in my previous blog entry I have indeed kept to my word, I did some self portraits today. It reminded me of how much I love doing them and that I shouldn't get lazy and not do them

It can be very time consuming but really worth it in the end, I find when I do self portraits it really quite therapeutic and relaxing. It also give me and excuse to have some fab photos of my myself and really play around with the retouching.

Ciao for now
