FOTD: Cleopatra Look on Lydia

Hi ladies,

Recently I was involved in a photo shoot for an urban T-shirt company. The owner turned up with all his rapper friends and it was quite different. They even started singing while we were doing the make-up. The company also does other accessories like caps and so on-cool stuff.

When I got the call sheet it said Asian/Arab & Cleopatra as the key words for the look.

This is was my Cleopatra inspired look:

I took inspiration from this iconic look by Tina Turner

We also did a more casual look:

Photography: Caron Westbrook 
Fashion house: Labsolja

Look 1
For the face I used
Luminese Air Brush System but I used OCC's foundations
Graftobian powder foundation to set

For the eyes
I used a black gel liner (Inglot) and a gold pigment (MUFE) mixed with a mixing medium to make it into a liner too. 
I also applied some lashes

For the lips
I used a mixture of lipsticks and glosses

Look 2
For the face 
I used the same as for the other look

For the eyes
I used again the black gel liner (Inglot) and an aqua liquid liner (MAC)

For the cheeks
I used a red based blush and a gold highlighter (MAC) 

For the lips
I used a burgundy lipstick (MAC) and a gloss (Bobbi Brown)

I'm quite happy with the result. When I look at the make-up on photos I always thing that I could have done this like that and maybe I would have changed this other but I have to say-I'm quite pleased.

You can see more photos here. 

What do you think?
