Today we are sharing a stunning and beautiful inspiration shoot by Flavia Carolina with Versa Artistry! Versa Artistry offers hair and makeup services for brides and bridal parties. Elana is Persian and oh so beautiful! Flavia wanted to enhance Elana’s ethnicity without being over the top or too dramatic.
“I wanted to create a lot of contrast without using dark makeup. On ethnic skin the best way to do that is with the reflection of the light colors. I used a warm shimmery off white color from urban decay to give me lots of reflection and paired it with a matte medium brown at the crease to give her shape to her eyes and finished with a metallic plum red lip.
Hair was designed to be clean but with lots of interest. I took a basic ponytail, leaving the bang section out, and divided it into 3 sections. letting the curl pattern in the hair maintain some shape and movement. Her bang section was left out creating a classic sweeping action in the front but used the rest of the length to create a fun detail through the top of head that came around to the other side.”
