New in Portfolio: “When Light meets Dark”

I’ve been doing a lot of commercial work lately, and in the land of commercial, the key word of the day is: Natural! On commercial photoshoots, it is my job to apply makeup in such a way, so my model simply looks better. No crazy smokey eyes, dark vampy lips or wet eyelids. When doing a lot of commercial shoots in a short period of time, I find myself longing for the extreme. Longing for those dark vampy lips and wet eyelids.

And so, that is exactly what I did for this Beauty shoot with beautiful Finnish model, Hanna Toivakka

    I hoped, that by now there would be an answer for what the dark lipstick you used was. It looks great, and so many of us asked for it, but sadly, no answer :(
