New video: Ballet photo shoot with Merritt Moore – Behind the scenes

Dancers are amazing to work with on photo shoots, and Merritt was no exception. She looked stunning and did the most beautiful movements without much direction.

For her make up I used the MUA Undress me too palette for the eyes along with a bit of the Naked palette. The eyeliner was my trusted Collection 2000 Extreme 24h waterproof felt tip. I used the Sleek Face form palette for contouring and the Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Exposed. I set everything with the Nars Light reflecting loose setting powder. For the lips I mixed Kate Moss for Rimmel No 05 and Mac Modesty.

The final pictures will be up on this blog soon. Stay tuned.

My latest video is all about skincare. I’ve spent quite a long time researching and trying out products to find those that really work for my skin, but now I am finally happy with my current routine. It doesn’t give me perfect skin, but then, who is lucky enough to be blessed with perfect skin? I think my very first post on this blog was actually about why I care about skincare and how it is a way for me to look after myself.

– Alverde Heilerde Waschcreme (sold at the German drugstore chain dm)
– La Roche-Posay effaclar duo
– La Roche-Posay Hydraphase UV intense legere
