Jeans and IVY

I signed up for a Model Mayhem account not too long ago to advertize that I am a makeup artist in the local area. If you dont know what Model Mayhem is, it is a networking website where models, artists, photographers, hair stylists and makeup artists can post about who they are and show some professional images.  You can check it out Here.

Model Melony Sot and I candid shot of me fixing hair....I feel so awkward in front of the camera. hahaha


I recommend if you are just starting out and looking to build up your portfolio and jump into doing photoshoots and get some experience, get up to speed and create a profile. Do be careful, just make sure that you have clear communication among everyone you decide to work with. I do get some random spam to my email from so called companies wanting me to go to some place out of state and all my expenses would be paid for. That is just very suspicious to me. So be careful!

So glad this was fake ivy, otherwise I would have been itching like red ants were crawling all over me hahaha


But on the flip side, I have already met quite a few awesome photographers and models from this site. I have had nothing but awesome times and I have walked away with not only experience, awesome shots, but a new friendship and loads of inspiration.  Energy just sparks off in every direction!

So, this is what I did for the first past of my day. Model Melony contacted me off of MM ( Model Mayhem) wanting to hire me as a makeup artist for some upcoming shoots. We met up last week to do a run through of how she would like her makeup. There were two looks for this shoot: half nude with Jeans and Poison Ivy.




These images have not been edited, but I love the way they look. I love how the makeup looked. Oh and I used the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow as well. :) They really are awesome. I will have to do a full review on them. :)


These were just a few of my favorite shots.  I had alot of fun shooting with Melony and the photographers, Matt and Stephen. I will be doing her makeup again for another underwater photoshoot of course with Dana Chapman. I will post those images too, but its not until later this week.

 If you would like to see more of Melony and her modeling portfolio, you can check her out at Model Mayhem, # 2221098 Model Mayhem Melony Sot

As for the photographer, I only have one photographers info, but I am sure the other one, Stephen will email me soon and I will share his info when I get it for those of you who are in the local Hampton Roads area.

NRJ Photography can be found on MM as well, #292065 Model Mayhem NRJ Photography


I had a great time doing this shoot. It will not be the last time I work with these amazing people!

The rest of my day went by pretty fast as I had errands to run afterwards with the kiddos (moms never rest! ), I also was able to squeeze in a client this evening for a hair color application, a quick trim and blowdry and took the christmas tree down.....I know I know......finally! hahahahah I hope I wasnt the only one who has been procrastinating on taking decorations down.

I hope you enjoyed spending this virtual day with me! :) See you soon in the next post! Thanks for stopping by!
