Autoshop Photoshoot

Posted in beauty, fashion, makeup, mua, photoshoot by tokyostargirl on October 15, 2010

I met Jimmy on a shoot awhile back and we always talked about collaborating again. Months later, we finally did it – and it was FANfReakiNgTABLOUS! He came up with the concept and wanted to shoot as his dad’s auto shop, he got us together — and organized everything. He was AMAZING! This shoot really put me on a high – our 8 hour work day paid off! =)

Another shoot is in the works…  wait for it!

Bollywood meets Hollywood

Posted in beauty, before/after, fashion, makeovers, makeup, makeup looks, makeup trends, mua, runway by tokyostargirl on September 10, 2010

Last night I got to be a part of a Bollywood meets Hollywood fundraising event. It was a night of fun and craziness – too bad I couldn’t stay for the whole thing. The bf’s parents are in town and we had a birthday dinner for his dad last night – so I had to jet out of the event as soon as I finished. Worked on 6 girls in 3 hours – not bad considering the details!

❤ my job.

Diana and I met on a photoshoot gig with a modeling agency that we both work with (she’s the Hairstylist & I’m the Makeup Artist). We wanted to collaborate for a photoshoot and had so many things planned and in the end, traffic got the best of us. We didn’t give up though, instead we had the fastest photoshoot ever. We were fighting against nature (and the sun) — did 4 looks in 1 hour! We were both running around like crazy women and had people staring at us from all angles. It was fun! =)

extra, extra

My first time being a “real” extra. I’ve been extras in the movies that I did makeup for, but never went on set JUST to be an extra.  It was for a commercial for LA Tourism and was shot at Universal Studios. They fed us AND gave us alcohol (which I didn’t drink anyway – I’m allergic, go figure). We had a freaking blast! I wish all extra work could be that easy and fun!

to seize the opportunity, melissa & i decided to have our own little photoshoot. =)

fotoshoot fun

We both got this dress at f21 for under $10 – what a steal, huh? We love the multi-patterns on it. It was hot & sunny out so the lighting wasn’t very good, but we managed to find a few good spots.

faux engagement photoshoot

Posted in fashion, lotd (look of the day), makeup, photoshoot by tokyostargirl on April 8, 2010

My bf and I were both in Houston last week to attend our good friends Quan & Michelle’s wedding. After the ceremony, we had a couple hours to kill so we decided to get in some ‘couple’ shots by our favorite photographer Dru. These were shot around downtown, in the not so nice parts – but I like the feel it gives to the pictures.

Things have been a little crazy in our lives so we decided to have a fun photoshoot to relieve ourselves. We had a few places in mind to shoot, but realized that the best photos come from unexpected places – so this is what we ended up with. =)
