Maria’s Makeover Photoshoot

Hi guys! Our mini-makeover photoshoots, which we’re doing together with an extremely talented and passionate makeup artist: Marta Markowska, have met with such a great response and I want to thank you for all your lovely comments and for sharing. You are absolutely amazing and we really appreciate your support.

Today I wanted to show you our third photo session which took place in December. I hope you like this little transformation just as much as you did the previous ones.

That makeup was pure perfection. Marta knew exactly how to accentuate Maria’s natural beauty and how to add a bit of glam to her look for this special occasion.

The Photoshoot:

This photo session is a great proof that spontaneous decisions are sometimes the best! And also that in order to fulfill your goals you need to be flexible sometimes. We had so many obstacles on that day because of which we had to adjust our plans. But I’m happy that despite all of that we’ve managed to achieve the results you can see in the photos. The weather did not treat us well (again) – as usual at this time of the year in Ireland. It was damp and cold but we were not discouraged so easily, and as you can see in photos, Maria has shown full professionalism as a model.

Is it only my impression or do black and white photos have some kind of unique charm, don’t you think? That last photo above was meant to be black and white from the moment I first saw it. It’s definitely one of my favourites!

I came across these words recently. I don’t know who’s the author but I find them very accurate and powerful. They definitely speak my mind:

What I like about black and white photographs is that they're more like reading the book than seeing the movie. Click To Tweet

I wonder which of Maria’s photos do you like most. Let me know in a comment below.

    WOW! Gorgeous photos. I don’t ever wear makeup, so I’m actually curious to see what my before and after would look like. Kind of scared too, though lol.

      I think you should definitely do it some day, Courtney. Even out of curiosity. It’s an amazing experience and it gives you a chance to see yourself from a totally different perspective. If you ever have a chance, don’t hesitate. I’m sure you’re going to love it!

      Thank you so much. I’m really glad you like it. As for location, well here’s where we really had to improvise. It all happened in a park and luckily we managed to find a few interesting spots.

    Awesome, I must say. What an amazing make over it was, the hair style looked so beautiful. The bright lip colour went great on her. Just fabulous , I feel I too need to have some makeovers for a better self-feel.

      Thank you so much! Yes, if you ever have a chance definitely do it. It give such a self-confidence boost and the memory stays forever in photos. I also experienced it once as a model and I’d recommend it to every woman.

      Thank you Rye! Yes, her makeup was fab but still looked subtle enough. Marta is a very skilled makeup artist with a lot of experience, she definitely knows what she’s doing. I’m really happy you like it.

      Thank you, Rachel. Definitely do it. I recommend it to every woman because I also experienced it once. It’s one of the best things a woman can do for herself. It boosts self-confidence and improves self-esteem, and you have fantastic memories.
