FOTD: Good-Girl-Gone-Bad Creative Makeup Photoshoot

Here are the pictures of the creative photoshoot I did with makeup artist Anita and photographer Jerry during my short trip to Hong Kong.

Fantasy makeup before after

We decided to play on a good-girl-gone-bad motif so we started with an innocent look with lots of pinks on the cheeks and lips, soft smoky eyes and big, big hair.

Next, Anita added darker colors on one side of my face and a black veil to portray the gradual change.

Finally, the full-blown evil look with heavily contoured cheeks, dark eyes, dramatic lips and pinned-up hair. This is definitely my favorite look out of the three!

Thanks Anita and Jerry for making the shoot so fun! Can’t wait to do it again =)
