Little Girls and pink makeup!!!

So here we go, today we look at little girls and pink makeup.

This past weekend I met with Stephanie (fab. photographer) and Nancy (super sweet model) we decided to do a candy doll like shoot.

So here is how I prepared…
I went to work in the morning 11am (I teach basic makeup for actors in training), at 2 pm class is over…I get a text form Stephanie reminding me of the 3 pm shoot with Nancy.

So I run home grab my makeup kit (Heat is bad for makeup, it makes things melt, causing chemical reactions that not only smell bad but are not good for the skin) and make my way to the US Midway Parking lot.

My Kit…
Since the theme was pink I stoked up on all the pink I could find…
Lipstick, shadow, lip liner, blush, some glitter (that should not be used in pictures since if it does how it looks bad…but it looked great in my kit), and some gold shimmery powder, I am not a believer in a “one brand can do all” so I carry different brands all the times, this gives me flexibility.
Once on location we set up in a nice shaded, grass area by the parking lot…
Set up the stool and worked out of my bag (note to self to purchase small foldable table).
Again I took 50% of my time setting up the base foundation and powder; to me this is the most important part of the makeup application. A good base sets the perfect stage for a good makeup job.

Then the cutes things that happens was a group of 4 little girls (ages 4 to 8) came by and just watched, giggled smiled and told Nancy how pretty she was, and how much pink there was all around them (working out of a carryon suitcase means I will spread out on the grass...I like to look at my stuff…)
They stood there for something like 5 minutes looking, their parents a few feet away waiting patiently. It was adorable!!!
It was i
n my mind the most flattering compliment.

So thank the universe for little girls and pink makeup!
