Behind the scenes beauty shoot w/ Toronto photographer Yao Kouadio!

Here are some behind the scenes pics from the beauty shoot I did with photographer Yao Kouadio. The concept/theme that we did was a "Fall" story. I did 3 makeup looks altogether which reflected the 3 periods of the day....morning, noon, and night but using fall inspired colours such as bronze, rust, and deep plums. Irina the hairstylist, coordinated the hair with sculptural textures with lots of movements and beautiful big braids. Final story will be posted soon! :)

 Beautiful models Nadine and Meghan!
