Bloody Mary shoot...

I've utilize most of my brushes. full reinforcement cleaning!

Today, I had the most difficult & bloodiest shoot ever! memorable by far! I was assigned with 2 models with 7 looks. Not just changing the lipstick shade or adding few dark eyeshadow to add drama but entirely change the hair and make up for each layout!!!

From thick brows to no brows. from no brows to groomed brows... from groomed brows to graphic brows. By look #6 I was already so drained & raising white flag. The shoot was from 9am till 7pm. No rest, no time to sit. I'm anxious & scared to see the end result (cross fingers) :s
