If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation.
But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.
Dressing up and awkward posing included!
The “Inspired by” series has been featured on this blog for almost two years now, and there have been a few changes to the format. Some noticeable (like doing a video instead of a written tutorial) and some probably unnoticed, but very important nonetheless. One of the latter has been the fact that about six months ago Mr. Loca kindly agreed to take my pictures (only the Inspired by ones, he still refuses to carefully arrange lipsticks). And so it was only natural that he had more of a saying in which looks we would shoot.
Out of curiosity I asked him what made him pick certain ads. Was it lighting, pose, artistic expression?
He said, rephrased: I choose pictures of women I´d like to “take home with me”. The rephrased bit is put in quotation marks, so I guess you have a pretty good idea of the original wording.
Totally not the answer I was expecting, but it is proof that you will learn something about your significant other when you least expect it. Like that he actually fancies blue eyeshadow on women.
Oh, and to everyone that complimented me on how amazing my skin looked in my “The Best of Skincare-Tag” video: Thank you. I filmed it after filming this one, and as you can see there is a shitload of product needed to achieve the natural perfect skin you were seeing.
