|This was the better of two pictures. I really am "Not a Model."|
I took my responsibilities as a model very seriously. I researched tutorials on tight lining my eyes, and looked at features on bridal makeup because I wanted a soft, natural look that would photograph well. My Sephora addiction came in handy, as I had everything I needed already in my makeup kit.
I had my hair professionally styled by Chelsea at Rêvé. Like a true blogger, I was about to take a selfie, but Chelsea offered to snap the photo instead. I closed my eyes in the first shot -- not a great start to my modeling career! Still, it shows off my eye makeup.
I was sent five different items for the shoot -- all but one worked, and the one that didn't was my fault, as I requested the wrong size. I packed up my four outfits in a duffel bag, along three pairs of shoes, two sets of earrings and necklaces, and makeup to touch up my face. I also brought a Coach purse that I bought at the outlet store way back before Christmas, and had never used because I was terrified that I'd get it dirty. I waterproofed it this morning and it made its long-awaited debut. Interestingly, it did not show up on the feature, but it was handy for carrying my makeup and hairbrush for touch-ups.
|This was the first (and so far only) really fancy purse I ever bought in my life.|
Gerri sent me a link to the photos and I couldn't wait to see, out of the 44 images in the shoot, which ones would be chosen. I liked the ones that were picked, though I had a few of my own favorites that were not included, and I might order prints of one or two of them.

It was hard to send the clothes back after the shoot. So many fun colors. A couple of days later, I got a nice surprise in the mail -- a big Gwynnie Bee tote bag that I'm already using to carry my books back and forth to my real (non-modeling) workplace.
