To do this look I created a stencil out of acetate.
I based my colours on makeup shades you would apply to the contours of the face, such as highlight and contour shades, eyeshadow, lipstick etc.
Then using my airbrush after applying the foundation base, I sprayed on the colours!
What Makes You Beautiful
A music video I shot with Chess. It’s hard for me to see myself like this but it was a powerful, intense, beautiful experience. I crawled into the darkest part of my heart that day. The part of the heart that is most vulnerable, most afraid, most sacred. The part that we reveal when we take a chance on love, and risk the possibility of being swept up and broken down.
It’s the love for yourself that makes you beautiful and we’re not always strong enough to see that.
Anyway, I hope you like. And thank you for loving me. Let’s be strong together.
“In support of National Bullying Prevention Month and in response to the tragic loss of Amanda Todd, we felt it appropriate to release this short film & cover of WMYB, which was shot prior to the incident. One Direction’s hit song What Makes You Beautiful is an uplifting song, encouraging one to let go of insecurities and realize their fullest potential by first recognizing the beauty & strength within.”
