buttercake // 35mm

Hello friends, 
Its May 24th and I woke up to rain on the ground. Its been overcast and gloomy the last few weeks, which I normally love, but i've been anticipating summer so much. I mean, I live in LA for a reason. 
Heres some photos we shot a few weeks ago, 35mm unedited. Makeup details at the bottom

I've been really into experimenting with color, and im loving yellow and golds right now. 
For this look I'm wearing:
Sugar Pill "Butter cake" and Fenty Beauty "Trophy Wife"  on my eyes. 
NYX Liquid liner, Ardell lashes, and my favorite Anastasia BeverlyHills Brow wiz in 'Soft Brown'.
Skin is prepped with, like 5 primers and moisturizers. (Im all about this glass skin trend)
No foundation, just concealer from IT Cosmetics 'Bye bye under eye'
Im also wearing a Wander Beauty cream highlighter & Milani powder highlighter on top, for the glow ;)
Lips is a Milani cream lipstick.

Top from amazon (ayee)
Jacket & Jeans Vintage levis
Hat from the surplus

I remember doing this makeup and thinking 'This is the best makeup i've ever done'. ;)

the bat cave

This shoot was a dream
Honestly shooting in this space was surreal, you could feel the creative energy flowing from the ground up. You might recognize this space from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, Lady Gaga's Bad Romance, various music videos and most recently, a campaign with Adidas. 
I met up with Max, Chloe and Emma. I know each of these three creative people through different past projects, so it was cool shooting with them and doing something this wild! The photos are super serious, but I promise you we were laughing most of the evening.
