PRODUCT REVIEW: THE TOOL YOU HAVE TO HAVE

10 Aug

SEPHORA’S PRECISION SPONGE

Happy Hump Day! (can you believe it’s only Wednesday?)

This past week I had an AMAZING shoot with photographer Lauren Cowart & models Nyne Lyves & Millie. We did 4 different looks, which was so ambitious, but we got it all done & they are GORGEOUS. Two of the photos are below, but I promise more amazing photos are to come!!

Millie

Nyne






















I used a new tool I picked up the day of the shoot when Lauren & I went out to run some errands. I had heard of the Blender Ball – $19.95, but since it isn’t carried in the Sephora store I went to, I opted for the PRECISION SPONGE – $12 instead. This sponge is AMAZING! That’s the only way to sum it up. I used it with NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and also with MAKE UP FOREVER INVISIBLE COVER FOUNDATION HD – $40. Unlike a brush, this sponge easily distributes all of the makeup evenly over the face & leaves it with an amazing airbrushed, glow-y quality. If you don’t have one – try it! I’ve been using it every morning on my skin instead of my fingers or a brush as I usually do.

My next purchase will be the Blender Ball because I’ve heard great things about it.

**PLUS – This is cheaper than a foundation brush from Bobbi Brown or MAC (two companies that make my favorite brushes). **

SOME PORTFOLIO PHOTOS YOU MAY NOT HAVE SEEN

Here are a few portfolio photographs that you may not have seen. These are all shot by the wonderfully talented Lauren Cowart.

THE FLUSHED HIPPIE & GOLDEN GODDESS

I’m excited to show some of my work & learn more about how makeup photographs. I’ve never had it professionally taken before & we discovered that makeup disappears a lot when photographed so I had to add more as I went. Lauren Cowart was the amazing photographer & I’m so glad she was willing to take these pictures for me!! Thank you.

Anyway, here’s Erika as the “Flushed Hippie”. I wanted something natural, with a reddish pink flush…I got the look I was going for.

For Brittany, my first idea was to go with gold, & named her the “Golden Goddess”. I like how the makeup turned out, but next time would use a heavier hand on the gold, it really does disappear in the camera lens. Take a look at Britt below!

You should of seen both Erika & Brittany in front of you – the makeup was too heavy for day wear. I’m definitely going to experiment more & learn as I go on how makeup is photographed. I am happy!
