My Holiday Look | Papillon Magazine

Hello Cuties~

     If you read my last post or happen to follow any of the Papillon models on social media, you know that the Holiday Lookbook has arrived!  (I'm really begging for this one to make it to print! It's just perfect.)

     I did share my own spread form the magazine in my last post, so here I want to share my favorite shots from my photoshoot.  My sister and I had a lot of fun playing with "locations" and poses.  So I couldn't wait to share more with you all!  I also want to talk a little bit about my makeup in this post as well.

     Here's the makeup look, Babes~  I've been struggling for a while to embrace the "no lens" makeup; but I feel this was my best look without circle lenses.

* Lashes: SugarPill Porcelain, eBay lower lashes

     The models were asked to provide close-up shots for the Gyaru Transformation page.  A great idea by the Papillon team to showcase everyone's makeup before, and after lashes!  And unlike some mean girls, we share our lash deets~ (¬‿¬ )

     Now let's get into the photoshoot!  As I said, my sister and I tried to give different scenery in some shots.  But being that everyone's still in quarantine, and I didn't feel safe photographing in busier areas, we stuck to our neighborhood.  For the limited spots we had, I'm pretty happy with how things turned out!
     A personal fave.  I just love the "catalog vibes" I'm giving (lol).

Coat - St. John's Bay (thrifted)
Romper - Forever 21
Top - Kuda Moda (eBay)
Boots - Rue 21
Beret - off brand 
Gloves - off brand (eBay)

     Y'all, it was pretty warm when I took these photos.  I couldn't handle the coat for long periods of time! xD  But I tried to keep it cute!

"Say Cheese ~"

     Remember back when I said I wanted to get better at posing for pictures?  I think I'm finally in a comfortable positions for photoshoots!  I recall saying squat poses were my favorite but hard to replicate without looking / feeling silly.  It's a concern of the past now!

     There's just something about this picture.  I love how effortless this looks and feels.  I'm just really proud of myself for not stressing and just enjoying myself this time.

     Using my surroundings.  Definitely helps when I need an idea for a pose!  The tree was pretty fun to play around with.

     More catalog Gal shots, plus a Beyoncé moment for ya!

     I wish I could share the entire photoshoot here, but we took about 50 - 60 shots.  It was hard to narrow down my favorites, which is good!  Usually I'm not too satisfied with my work, however I can say both my sister and I deserve a pat on the back.

     I will share more photos on social media so please check those out if you wish to see more!  (FB | Insta)
