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!

The other day I posted some before/after photos that I took of Sarah as I was waiting for the pro photos by Jean-Claude to come in – well here they are! Images from the 3 different looks that I did on her.

got together and did a photoshoot – these photos are just before/after photos taken by me, the photos taken by Jean-Claude will be posted as soon as I get them. Jean-Claude and I have been talking about getting together to shoot for awhile and we finally had the chance! Sarah drove almost 2 hours to get to us, but Jean-Claude is THAT good – so it’s worth it. =) We shot different looks in his home studio and was ready to head towards the beach for some outside shots, but the weather took a turn and we had to cancel that part. =( Here’s just a teaser of the different looks that we shot…




Look #1 – Makeup: Soft & Natural to bring out all features

Hair: Naturally straight

Look #2 – Makeup: Slightly darker eye, darker lip – up a notch

Hair: Naturally straight w/a lil bit of product to smoothen it out

Look #3 – Makeup: teal eyeliner to bring out her eyes, lighter lip, peach blush

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. =)

When I was back in Houston for my mom’s retirement — we had a mother/daughter photoshoot with studioDru. As always, he did a fabulous job! If you are in Houston and are looking for a photographer (btw he’s willing to travel, too) – I highly recommend him, not only because he’s my bestfriend, but because this man has talent!

circa 1981-1982

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

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. =)
