What a Day!

I just got back from my first paid photoshoot - and it is going to result in *PUBLISHED WORK* (and a tearsheet for my nascent portfolio!!!) in March!
SCORE!!!!!
(Needless to say, I am very excited. Can you tell?)

It was a fetish shoot, with bodypainted ponygirl and pony mistress. Putting glamour makeup over the bodypaint (Kryolan Aqua, in light slate blue for the Domme and lavender with dark purple accents for the pony) turned out to be quite the challenge, even though it was good quality bodypaint. Truly, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I agreed to do it. On the upside, I learned a LOT (in particular, it was a real challenge to get lipstick onto the girls.) But once I figured it out, they looked GREAT!

I have to admit I was initially dubious about the blue in particular, but she looked fantastic. I'd brought some blue eyeshadows - and none of them worked. They all just disappeared into the blue background. I wound up using the same violets and plums on both of them, but they looked totally different due to how I applied them, and the way the colors looked next to the paint.

The blue girl got deep red metallic lips that looked amazing, and plum eyeliner and super skinny plum eyebrows (her real ones were covered in paint, so I could do whatever I wanted to for her brows.) The pony got soft eyes, lined in plum, with long faux eyelashes. The lashes work SO well for doing pony - I won't go out without them myself.

I got there at 10am. We talked and made plans for about an hour, and then spent 2 or 3 hours doing the makeup. The shooting started around 2 and went until something like 6:30. The girls were real troupers - it was pretty darn chilly there, and there were definitely not dressed warmly (in fact, they were hardly dressed at all.)

I will post again when I have pix to share - but in the meantime, all I can say is: AWWWW YEAH!!!!!!
