Playing two Karen's in the April issue!
Behind the scene shots of playing a famous actress and a fan.
A stand in was used for placement
Extensions added in to play the actress
The aim was to play completely different characters. It worked because I didn't recognize myself!!
About to walk on set (you should have seen the gold heels I was wobbling in)
The shoot was to promote CoverGirl Lip Color Blast Flipstick Colour (try saying that 3 x fast).
Blogger Claire Sulmers from The Fashion Bomb also had an alter ego shoot. Here's us checking out the shots so far
Playing around (Claire the office worker, me the fan of an actress)
My colour was 'Minx'
We arrived at 8am and left the studio well after 7pm. Took this shot out the window before we walked out
In December I did a photo shoot for CoverGirl! I still can't believe I got to work with the brand again - this time for Essence (my last CoverGirl shoot post is here).
The brief for the shoot was to show two different characters. I was an actress, the other 'person' is their fan. Well it worked because good God I didn't recognize myself. The photos were taken by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks who's known for creating 'doubles.' (I remember the work he did one year for America's Next Top Model).
Thank you Essence, CoverGirl, Saisha Beecham (make up artist magician), Derek Blanks and last but not least Michael for taking the behind the scene pics! What I wore arriving at the studio.
ps. Mum your mag copy is on it's way!
