Skyler Elizabeth | Los Osos, CA

To say that I love my job is truly an understatement. I get to play with makeup, work with amazingly talented people, and share my gift with the world! There is nothing better than that! For this shoot we made the trek over to Montana De Oro in Los Osos CA and found the most beautiful sand dune to play on. We collaborated with BlackWater in San Luis Obispo, who provided us with the most beautiful clothing. This photo shoot was about having fun and feeling inspired! Each look had a unique vibe, and I think we achieved something fabulous!

I wanted to keep the eyes simple to start off. The first look had a dewy natural feel to go along with the long flowing hair and vibrant kimono. Skyler has a fun and playful spirit and it was cool to see her switch it up with each wardrobe change!

For the second look I kept the eyes natural and boosted up the lips with a pop of deep color. The tone went perfect with the saturated colors in the background. I truly loved this look!

The third look was a race until the very end! The sun was setting and we had just enough time to create something special. As Brit was creating a faux mohawk, I was trying to create a turquoise wing eye liner to match the rocker feel. We got done just in time to get the final shots in before the sun went down!

This shoot felt so special because of the amazing people I got to share it with! A day full of memories to last a lifetime!
