Are you ready for some amazing monochrome beauty? Doesn’t matter. We love it so much we are showing you anyways.
From Omontese Akhetuamn of BeautyCook Studio, we get the chance to see just how gorgeous monochrome makeup can truly be. The models are adorned with eccentric head pieces, fabulous matching jewellery and beautiful monochrome makeup in yellow, green, orange, pink and more.
Enjoy as she walks us through her inspiration for the shoot.
On this beautiful Sunday, I had missed mass because I had an 8AM appointment with a client. I resolved to attend evening mass so I don’t miss on my blessings and Sunday obligation.
Some time during the homily (sermon) I became distracted and kept remembering the positive comments I got on Instagram for the monochrome makeup I had done on my client that morning for her birthday thanksgiving ,
This then sparked something in me to do a monochrome inspired photo shoot of various colours. I immediately found my self reaching for a pen and note pad so I could write down every thing my spirit was telling me unless I forget, the spirit also revealed the name I should give to this collection ‘Colour Series’
As soon as I got home I called Bimbo of Tradition by Bimbs and shared my revelation, she was willing to make me new set of aso-oke gele (head-wrap) and matching beads. I decided to take the pictures my self again this time with my D7 Canon DSLR ( yeah I upgraded) that way I could be in control.
We did this shoot on 3 different days (not easy being the photographer and MUA ) *wink*
