Before and After

Simi wanted a makeup look inspired by Aishwarya Rai for her photo session. I also did her hair too – we agreed that she would do her own her but then I arrived earlier than expected (my bad! I thought it would be much further+traffic!) so I did her hair…which took much longer than I anticipated~ ^^||….Simi was stressed out from exams and was breaking out. She requested that I photo shop out her scars~ it was a time investment and a challenge. As a result I learned new techniques~ ^^v yay for me.
Before and After
Simi says:

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Liz. She is very charismatic and I felt extremely comfortable shooting with her. I had a clear idea of the types of moods and poses I wanted her to capture, and Liz found my best angles and captured everything artistically.

She is also a very skilled makeup artist, and used exclusive products purchased from Japan. She was patient and responsive to my makeup requests, and gave me better advice about my acne-prone skin than my dermatologist. She was punctual and never complained.

I love the finished products! Her touch ups and color schemes make me look like a character from a fairytale.


Simi has such gorgeous eyes~ and with her hair length, it reminded me of the gal in Boticelli’s “Birth of Venus”~! Enjoy three of my favorite from the set, and you can see a few more in my Portraits gallery!


K & J chose the package of Lifestyle Engagement/Couples with Makeup Application: $375. The location they selected was beautiful and of course, they are a beautiful couple! As we were shooting, K & J received lots of compliments! =)

Please enjoy some highlights from this shoot:

On Saturday, I participated in a photo shoot for a sexy calendar that will be sold to raise money for the West side German Shepard Rescue. This is the before and after shot of the makeup, but I’ll post the photos of the shot when they send it to me! Stay tuned! :)
