With PRIDE

This past weekend a couple of the STYLUS members gathered to put a very special photoshoot together. In honor of it being Pride Month we decided to have our own little photoshoot to show that STYLUS loves everyone for who they are.

In all honesty, this shoot was very last minute and I was all over the place trying to piece everything together. It was actually easier that I had initially thought, especially when there were already so many beautiful creations celebrating Pride. (The hardest part was finding one theme, but in the end I figured 'why not' and used everything.)

This project, which I proudly named 'With PRIDE' was by far the funnest one yet for me personally. It's funny because I've only ever watched behind the scene videos for photoshoots where the assistants are running around providing extra effects, but there I was doing all the running making sure there were enough bubbles everywhere. The ever changing wind made this so much harder, and not to mention the hill that we used as our set. It was tiring, but fun; come on, who doesn't like balloons and bubbles. The best part was that I was using a bubble gun (I've always wanted one as a kid)!

Moving onto the actual photoshoot. I was a little sad that we didn't have more models and artists to work with for this project, but then again it was a last minute project so... yeah. It is what it is at the end of the day.

Because we lacked makeup artists, the makeup was left up to Kia and I; which wasn't hard since we only had two model anyway. Kia's work was very pretty, and had a more feminine touch to it while mine had a more masculine vibe.

I wanted to create a look that said 'anyone can wear makeup' because anyone can. Makeup isn't only for girls. Yeah, that's what I wanted to portray.

I honestly didn't know what I wanted to do for makeup; all I knew was that I wanted a fierce look. I kind of dubbed it the 'battle paint' look.

Well, I've stalled for enough time. Without further ado, here is the finished product!
