Port Work | Fall Beauties

Hey guys! Back in September I began working on my portfolio and enlisted 2 of the coolest chicks I know, Candyce and Jenice, to help me with the first images. With Darius B. Williams behind the lens, I knew I could do no wrong!

I had two goals in mind with the shoot:

1.) I wanted to use real women and their own clothing with the styling, and
2.) I wanted to experiment with the smokey eye.

First Look: Casual Cuties

I styled each girl in a look for going out, respectively.

Candyce’s first look was created using a pretty hunter green (Glamazon), layered over a green cream shadow (by Revlon) as a base. Truffle, a soft slate color, was added to the crease.


Jenice’s first look was created using a burgundy color Eggplant, layered over a rose cream shadow (Revlon). Flirty,  a coppery color, was added to the crease.


Second Look: Festive Flirts

The holiday season means more parties, so I styled the girls in looks that were classically sexy and perfect for cocktails and dancing.

Both girl’s looks were created using Aztec Gold, Bermuda Sand, Brass, and Flirty.

Candyce stayed around a little longer for one additional look. I layered Brass over a rose cream shadow and added Bermuda Sand to the crease. The gorgeous jacket she’s wearing is courtesy of K’Presha Boutique (love the ruffles!)
All in all I had a wonderful time working with the girls and love how the images came out. To see more, visit KP FUSION’s Facebook page.

  1. I love the fact they’re wearing their own clothes. Such great taste. I think it makes the shoot more personal & I can relate to real women displaying their own fashion sense. The makeup also highlights their beauty so well. Candyce’s eyes are amazing and they pop with shadow + eyeliner. Love the lip color in the last photo. Excellent work and lighting – sorry for the novel response, I just enjoyed this post.

  2. Thanks Tamara! I’m getting into wardrobe consulting so I knew when it came time for this shoot, I wanted to basically “remix” their wardrobe. I put pieces together that they hadn’t tried out before and each girl was happy with the results.

    The liipcolor in the last photo is a hot pink gloss by Revlon 🙂
