California Dreams by Glynnis Garcia

I had asked last year what my friends and acquaintances would like to see. And I finally got around to start a occasional blog! I will be covering the photoshoots I am booked on. Since I am also a professional hairstylist, behind the chair as well. I will share some techniques and product knowledge that I have picked up in the salon, and on set for both hair and makeup. A few things you should know about me: I LOVE beauty, art and fashion. Also cats, dogs, my daughter, food, tacos and sushi. 

I thought I would kick up my first time blog posting, covering a photoshoot that I had the pleasure to work on! My friend Anna Sudberry from Anna Straya Photography had asked me to do a test with her and these lovely girls. My mood board a very much California, American Eagle, laid back vibe. The look was to be kept very clean and natural. For their looks, I had mostly focused on skin prep using Sonia Roselli's  Waterbalm. Which acts as a primer, day cream, night cream, eye cream and a moisturizer. Catherine has natural freckles, and I didn't want to interrupt them. So we withdrew from foundation, and instead cleaned up her brows with Senna's brow powder. As well as used Viseart's eye shadow to even out her eyelids. We had finished her look with a lip color from Graftobian. Elle, as well had great skin. So we just prepped her as well with Waterbalm, some polishing with Senna's brow powder and pomade, and blush from La Femme, finished with chapstick. Clothes supplied by Klothes In Motion
