Almost 2 years ago I was invited to Charles Long apartment to shoot this editorial look for Dark Beauty Magazine.  I had never worked with him before and was excited to help bring his vision to life.  He sent some ideas of the type of makeup he was looking for and Al Kelly and I got to work.

I used a variety of colors and palettes for these models.  Primers are always important, as well as setting sprays and powders.  I love fun colorful shoots and I was honored to work with Charles Long and Natalie.

Al Kelly is a Norfolk hair stylist out of Changes Spa.

Charles Long is a Photographer/Retoucher based in Hampton Roads, Va.
