Behind The Scene Photo Shoot With A Fashion Executive

Ramona Old Head-shot
When I was called to do makeup for Ramona Dunlap, Senior Marketing Manager for Calvin Klein I asked my agent to send me a picture so I could get an idea how to pack my kit. She explained to me that Ramona needed new head-shots because she will be doing a lot of engagements & interviews so she was in need of new pictures. When I received the above picture I was excited because she was going to be a great canvas to paint. As I looked more in more at the picture I agreed she needed new but something different. Ramona eyes and her pose spoke to me, there was a little something that I felt I could get to come out. I knew that I was going to be working with my favorite photographer Karriem Simmons in I knew the clothes were being pulled from Donna Karan so this felt like a makeover more than a photo-shoot for new head-shots. The day of the shoot Ramona was everything you can ask for in a talent. She was amazing…so here is our story.
Percy & Reed Hairspray was a must have hair item that Ramona wanted for her hair
First headshot I kept her makeup natural..Luv her Donna Karan leggings
Makeup items I used on Ramona: Inglot, L’OREAL Paris, Stila, & Smashbox
I wanted her lips to have a certain shade of pink so I did a lot of mixing . Time for more Smashbox Reflection High Shine Lipgloss
The second & third look it was about her bling bling eyes thanks to Stila cosmetics. Then I changed her lips to this gorgeous orange from L’OREAL Paris
Ramona fifth makeup look I was inspired by this fabulous dainty and exquisite Donna Karan black lace dress. When she put the dress on it reminded me of Audrey Hepburn. I remember this eye makeup that Audrey Hepburn had on so I used that image as my inspiration.
Black Lace Donna Karan dress…iDIE
My makeup inspiration for Ramona fifth look…Audrey Hepburn…I luv her
To change up the makeup I wanted a high shine rock n roll lip on Ramona.  I knew that she could handle a strong lip so I went for it.

I played with a variety of  red lipstick, lip pencils, and lip color mixed with a high shine gold lip gloss.
