Red Mesa Styleshoot
Look through the photos of The Beauty at Red Mesa Cantina!
Working with Wedding Professionals
I was asked by Jennifer Matteo Event Planning to coordinate with Salvador Photography and herself, to do hair and makeup for her model, Sheena. I knew Sheena! She is a gorgeous , smart young woman with a lot of drive. It was Beauty at Red Mesa Cantina!
I was excited because I LOVE style shoots and working with wedding professionals all around. The photoshoot was to take place at beautiful venue, Red Mesa Cantina. I love new venues!
As a wedding professional, I want to have photos at as many beautiful venues as I can! I want variety!
When Sheena came to my house, we decided to do a soft, wavy hairstyle, half up and half down. She has such gorgeous hair!
Products I Used
- Bumble and Bumble Tonic
She came over with clean, dry hair. I sprayed Bumble and Bumble Tonic , evenly distributing the product throughout the hair. I then began blow drying the hair with a round brush, in sections, for volume and smoothness.
- Bumble and Bumble Does It All Hairspray
I went back through the hair in sections and sprayed the Bumble and Bumble Does It All Hairspray before and after using my styling tool. You can read my review on the Does It All Hairspray. Absolute favorite.
- Paul Mitchell Hair Wand
As I sectioned out the hair in small sections, after, I would use the hairspray on each piece of hair and work the wand in a horizontal motion, leaving the ends out. I didn’t start using the wand in a vertical motion until the top of the hair and around the face.
Half Up Half Down
I section out the front of the hair from ear to ear. I took small sections on the top and lightly teased then and pinned them down.
With hair in front of her ears, I did twists and pulls and pinned her hair towards the back to frame her face. I left a couple pieces out softly in the very front.
Again I sprayed with Bumble and Bumble Does It All Hairspray.
Eye Makeup for Mesa
I always start with the eyes first. Sheena has beautiful eyes and a nice shape. They leave plenty of room for color on her eyes.
Yay! I always start with a primer.
