Working with talented people and a beautiful model is the recipe for success!  Recently this shoot was featured on 100 Layer Cake.  I love how it turned out.  

Flowers: La Fete

Dress: Avenia

 I taught a braided look very similar to this one during my class in Chicago.  Basically it's just a whole bunch of twist braids all down the back.  I started by creating two twist braids going down each side of her part in the front, and meeting them in the back.  Then I continued to twist across the back of her head, in a zig-zag pattern down to her nape.  I finished the braid through the ends by twisting and crossing and mixing in a little fishtail braid.

I kept her makeup look very simple.  I wanted it to look natural and ethereal.  Her lip color is MAC Prolong Lipcreme: Prolong and her shadow color is a combination of MAC Charcoal Brown and MAC Blunt.
