I had the pleasure of meeting Meiko for the first time after she booked me for a photo shoot for her new food blog. I will be posting a link as soon as it's online ;). Meiko sent me some inspiration pictures with lots of fresh, sunny makeup looks. I had so much fun bringing out her shining personality with the makeup!
We wanted to keep her eyes fresh with a pop of liner and some false lashes. I filled in her brows with shadow and an angle brush to define her eyes even more. Then, I did some subtle contouring with a combination of a couple different shades of foundation, airbrush and highlight/contour powders so she would look just as vibrant on film as she is in person.
I wish I could have hung around and watched all the fun and took advantage of all the yummy food that was made for the shoot! Here is what Meiko had to say about her experience:
"Betsey was amazing. She was incredibly professional and personable. I showed her my vision and she delivered. Even as a woman of color she new my appropriate shades immediately. I was soooo impressed. I had an amazing photo shoot because of the quality of her work. I would definitely recommend working with her." - Meiko Dawn
