Expect the unexpected-Makeup Artist turned model

When booked on a photoshoot,or for any job for that matter, flexibility is key. Expect the unexpected and go with the flow. So when Christina(our newest addition at A-List) and I arrived to begin makeup on a shoot and only the male model was there and 2 females were no shows... well, we just went with it. And Christina's modeling career was launched.

I was writing a piece for CNY Woman magazine on creating a perfect fall smokey eye. I needed an image to go with the piece, so this was a perfect time to execute the look. Kim Cook at Big Paw Photography is the magazine photographer and this shoot was her vision, so the timing was perfect.

Since Christina is a makeup artist with her kit on hand the whole shoot, she could make a few changes to her look along the way. She changed her neutral MAC Viva Glam 5 lipstick into a fiery red later in the shoot

Christina did our male model's makeup and she added the red lipstick for this shot
