The Skull With The Blonde Afro:



      Recently I was asked by local photographer, Maggie, to pose as well as do my own hair and makeup for an upcoming shoot. In addition, I also asked local caricature artist, Shahin Gutierrez, to collaborate with me to create this "Dia De Los Muertos" inspired look. I was really happy with the journey of how my face turned out and thought you guys might be interested in seeing the transformation as well! 




These Boots No 7 wipes helped out immensely when it came time to take all the product off of my face:


      Left the blue eyeliner on from the shoot, other than that, NO makeup on! (Everyone loves to make fun of girls with no makeup on, I do it too!)


Shahin, local artist who also finds time to help his girlfriend do her makeup ! Thank you SO very much:


      The actual shoot was so much fun too! Parrots, bugs, and lots of pups were present on scene. I hope to share some more photos with you all very soon!


Yours,
Nico
