Iconic 70's Southern California Styled Shoot

This was an absolutely MAGICAL shoot!!! I was beyond excited to work with Christina Svez, a french wedding designer who recently moved to San Diego. She asked me if I was interested in doing something like this and obvi I was ecstatic!!! 

The venue was this rad house called: We Bunk You, 5147 Cape May Avenue, San Diego 92107.

The makeup I did was soft (as per the eyoosh), but I kept the brow thinner than I normally would, the skin a little dewier ( I wanted a shine, not so powdery) and the under eye not quite as bright. Eye liner all around was a must... the style of photography was a little more 70's as well... warmer... not as bright as the newer trends and a little more real looking (just not as istagrammy is what I'm saying). 

Urghhh I'm just dying over this beauty! The sunlight in her hair... Ahhh! I just LOVE IT!!! Thank you to the entire team that made this shoot a total success! I really appreciate you all and I can't wait for the next one!
