Maggie Cappelletti (founder of Clubelle) and I (Astrid, founder of twindly) are doing a series collaboration projects where we take a prominent look from a beauty brand and recreate it ourselves. The aim is to showcase how the looks would differ for different skin tones and face types. We were curious on how far we could do it without the fancy equipment, and supermodel looks.
True, we are not newbies, Maggie is a professional makeup artist and I am a self confessed beauty junkie. We do have a decent photography equipment (a tripod, Canon EOS 700D & Olympus EM-10). Plus, lots and lots of creativity and fun spirits!
To start the project, we chose three looks representing the Spring 2016 collection from major brands. For us, Spring colors are one of the most challenging color schemes, usually because it’s so pastel and cool (opposite-warm cool, that is). That’s usually not the most flattering colors on us. On that note, we chose some not-so-common color schemes for spring as well and have a bit of everything. Intrigued? Let’s go!
