Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile
The above quote is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of all the beautiful autumn colors, and of my lovely friend Sophie. She has a smile that melts your heart, a personality that warms your soul, and since a few months, she also has short hair! 😉
An opportunity I couldn’t miss! So we got together and she let me glam her up, add a selfmade flower hairpiece and then we headed outdoors to get some shots with a gorgeous autumn vibe!
For this little project, I wanted to work with a handcrafted flower hairpiece with seasonal colors, that worked well with the warm, soft tones of her make up and yet beautifully stands out in her blonde hair.
I had an amazing afternoon with this gorgeous wildflower! Thans again Sophie for being my muse of the day.
Are you looking for someone to glam you up for a special occasion, a photoshoot, or you just want some much deserved me-time with make-up and hairstyling? Let me know, and we’ll work something out!
I promise it’s not a trend to only choose women who are named Nikki. It just a coincidence I have two gorgeous women with similar names amongst my friends.
And if you find this amusing, just wait until I find the time to work with Sofie and Sophie. Haha, I can’t help it!
Anyway, with Nikki I got to work on a gorgeous blank sheet. This freckley ginger never wears any make up or goes wild with hairstyles. My fingers got all tingly and I couldn’t wait to try out a look on her.
For reference, I added a photo below of Nikki – who you can also find on Instagram as The Ginger Diaries. As like most natural beauties, she doesn’t need make up. No one needs it, but is fun to experiment with, or to bring out specific qualities in someone’s face.
Make up wise, I decided to make her face pop just a little more. Adding some more color on the lips and cheeks, but keeping everything else very neutral. Hair wise I chose a loose updo that flows in the wind. I’m smitten on those kinds of hairstyles. Those styles that look effortless and flawless at the same time.
And since we are bloggers after all, golden hour was the perfect time of day to go shoot the result!
