Belk shoot day 1

Hello all! Here's some behind the scenes pics of my shoot with Belk department store! We had a great day, the crew and talent were so much fun to work with! The little girl in the picture was so funny! She was showing us how to "drop it low" and how to "dougie" LMAO! Shes only 4 years old!
We started at 730 am by the water at longboat key resort and it was 30-40 degrees for most of the day! Eeek!!
Today we will be shooting bikinis, and thankfully is much warmer!

Quick Tip: How to rock Orange lips

Waterproof makeup to the test!

Happy new year!
So I am prepping for a underwater photo shoot tomorrow and I decided to do some experimenting and put some products to the test! There are so many products out there that claim to be waterproof but I just had to see for myself before I tried it on set. This is not the look Im doing tommorrow, just something I threw together, so sorry, its not my best application. 

So here is what I used:

Face: Dermablend foundation in medium
Eyes: MAC Lingering Brow Pencil
MAC Paint Pot Delft
MAC Eyeliner Blacktrack
Maybelline One by one waterproof mascara (not pictured)
Sonia Kashuk Full Glam lashes
Duo lash glue on left eye/ LashGrip on right eye
*I have never tried lash grip so i wanted to see the difference. 
Lips: NYC 16h lip stain in persistent pink


Ok! so i took a shower and ran my face under the water for a while without rubbing, I patted my face dry and here was the result. The Lash grip once wet turned white, both lashes were still on, but when i tugged they came off pretty easily. The cream eyeshadow and the eyeliner i used were perfect! The foundation was also intact as was the lip stain.

The final verdict, don't use false lashes underwater! I did some research and read that most latex glues do not work if completely submerged, even if they say they are waterproof. However I hear that "lashtite" from ardell works? I may have to go hunt that down in the morning.

thanks for reading and wish me luck on my shoot tomorrow! I will post some behind the scenes pics throughout the day!
