|Last week I had the pleasure of working with the uber talented makeup artist Emily Benitez! While we met when she was doing beauty makeup for a branding photoshoot, I absolutely fell in love with her creative “faceart” looks she had in her portfolio – I mean, you gotta check her stuff out!
So of course I HAD to have her work her magic when I photographed an enchanted mermaid and then got the chance to photograph a look she did on herself… and maybe even got a little makeover myself which will be revealed soon ;D
For this shoot she decided to revisit an older look she did last year with a twist..or swirl? Along with a fun pop of color! Katrina Elbo, hairstylist extraordinaire, did a fantastic job creating a sleek, slicked back wet look that I think really complimented the overall style we were going for!
|I loved how Emily’s mane started out tame but then progressively got wilder until we got this epic flowing hair shot – thanks to professional cardboard flipper Katrina and our handy dandy box fan.
Wondering how you can recreate this look? Of course you are! We helped Emily setup a time lapse video of her applying her “Avant-Garde Geo Drip” look from start to finish which you can watch below!
|I loved that she included the tidbit where she asked what she should do for the neckline – when asked if it should be more squiggles, there was a resounding “YAASSSS” from us, hahaha. Be sure to subscribe to Emily’s YouTube channel to see her newest videos!
You bet Ill be working with Emily more often so if you have an makeup suggestions or inspirations, please leave a comment below! Maybe it’ll be featured in the next FaceArt makeup blog post ;D
