For this outfit I chose to do a more casual look, one that I would wear on an everyday basis just out shopping or to lunch. I chose to wear this shirt because it is more formal, but I made it simpler with a tie in the front. On a daily basis I rarely wear makeup. I normally don’t wear any and if I do it’s just a little mascara. When I decided to start working with David, I realized I needed to start experimenting with something I had never tried before. With my darker complexion, and the fact that I don’t prefer to wear too much makeup, I always wear neutral colors. Along with my eye makeup, eyelashes are a small thing to make your photos pop! In my first shoot I decided to wear very subtle lashes. Turns out, they aren’t very visible in picture, so I had to experiment more with lashes. Even if the lashes look ridiculously long and dramatic in the store, most likely they’re going to look great in pictures. This was the first shoot I put on lashes myself, and I was surprised I didn’t glue my eye shut in the process. Along with makeup, accessories also make your photos stand out. For this outfit I chose to wear a watch just because I LOVE them and will most likely have one on with all my outfits. The earrings were actually not supposed to go with this outfit, I had just previously had them in during my first shoot that day and forgot to change them! Sometimes your outfits can’t be “picture perfect”! Many people probably wouldn’t think so, but your hair is such an easy way to express yourself and jazz up your outfit a little more. I chose to do a half up half down hairdo. I almost always shoot with curly hair so I decided to change it up. Since it is a casual outfit, the bun in the back added some carelessness to go along with the casual ideal. And last, but definitely not least... SHOES! As many girls are, I am obsessed with shoes. I chose to wear these shoes with this outfit because I had gotten them the week before and had honestly wore them everyday since. When you get new shoes, they just seem to go with everything! Putting together my own outfits is something I love to do, so being able to relay this into my pictures is so much fun.
