While scrolling through my photos I found this older picture I took of myself. I used to have it set for my profile picture for pretty much every social media account I have. It was my first time doing a really fun lip look and my style in this is not my usual style. I wanted to do something different than what I look like everyday and really try to push myself out of my comfort zone.
While this photo is not the most technically correct, it is a very accurate representation of my inner self. I tend to project myself as a quiet person and with the stress of graduation I chose comfort over style. My inner self is definitely a fun and fashion loving person. I loved to do bolder looks and really do things that were not everyday conventional looks. I’ll have to try to find images of all the lip art I have done after this!
The look I tried to do in this photo was sort of space/galaxy themed. I had “space” buns in the picture. My makeup look is a simple winged look with blue eyeliner underneath my eye to give it an extra pop. The lips were done using a dark blue liquid lipstick and blue makeup glitter on top. I ended up accidentally eating a lot of glitter that day, haha!
Cindy Sherman is one of my favorite photographers. One of her main focuses is to satirize the beauty standards are in society. In her portraits she dresses up in ridiculous clothes and over does her makeup and tan. She pairs the portraits with brightly colored backgrounds to add a clownish effect to the image.
She is a woman of many traits. She acts as the photographer, model, makeup artist, wardrobe, and hairdresser for her shoots. I identify with this too. I love doing all those things so I can get the specific look I want for photographs.
I’m currently obsessed with the new Morphe 3502 eyeshadow palette. It has different shades of browns, gold, oranges, and reds. I’ve loved creating eye looks inspired by sunsets and rust colors. It’s usually my go-to eyeshadow look. I feel inspired with the colors on and they match mostly any outfit or occasion!
Im currently obsessed with this color scheme. While looking for inspiration for my wedding I stumbled upon this one. I LOVE dark colors. Even as a young kid I tended to gravitate towards rich and bold colors. Dark colors go so well with pretty much anything.
This image is not the most technically correct but it has recently become on of my favorites. The person pictures is my little sister. We did a mini photo shoot o my iPhone because she wanted a new picture for her Instagram. It was a cloudy day and we were at the river walk.
The reason why I love this image so much is because it shows off her true personality. She is a very beautiful, strong, courageous, and independent woman with a funny and light hearted side. This was not one of the pictures she posed for. We were joking about something and I had caught her laughing. What makes this a great image is the content and the meaning with it. It captures a wonderful moment between her and I.
I’m just a college senior who loves coffee, cats, dancing and makeup.
I have been doing photography since high school and freelanced a bit back home. I did a lot of wedding, quinceañera, and other special event photography within the Latino community. I’ve had about 3 years of experience with graphic design. I’ve designed a few logos and business cards for small businesses including my own! I love color and makeup. I find myself getting a lot of inspiration from color schemes and artistic makeup looks.
