For my 2nd day with Flirt!, I got to experience what it felt like to be a model! Flirt! asked me to do a photo shoot for some up and coming “back-to-school” and “fall’ make-up looks (time to layer-up and roll in the new colors). Honestly, I wasn’t too sure of the idea, kind of embarrassed about the whole idea that I was going to be in some kind of photo shoot. Nonetheless, it was definitely an unbelievable once in a lifetime experience – I was soo pampered that day, and had the chance to see some of the most talented and wonderful people at work!
Here are some behind-the-scenes from the “Back-to-School Beauty” photo shoot:
-Bright and early! Stuffing our empty stomachs right before getting to work-
-The awesome beauty chair I was pampered on!-
-Hubert the Dino and all the school props for the shoot-
-That head massage felt sooo good. Bethany says it stimulates your hair-
-Kelly and Jeremy setting up the props-
-First look: Study Hall Chic! The crayon barrette is hand-made by Kelly-
-Love this Tibi top! Getting pinned up because everything was too big on me...-
-Getting a bow tie! Gotta love bows-
-The shoot begins! Don’t mind the bottom half, Jeremy is only shooting the top half-
-Getting ready for the second look! The amazing Porsche at work – super intense eyeliner-
-Bethany putting a super-high and sleek ponytail on me!-
-Yay, ponytail accomplished! Bethany is so adorable!-
-Dressing up cant get any more fun if you’re getting stylized by Kelly!-
-Second look: Rock Steady!-
-Checking out the photos taken…-
-Porsche applying some Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow in Electric Denim, such a pretty color-
-Jeremy James the awesome/talented photographer who shoots most, if not all, of Kelly’s photos-
-Kelly named this dinosaur Hubert!-
-Bethany pinning up my hair for the final look!-
-Fixing that crayon beehive that was later on replaced with a bow-
-Final touches before the last shoot!-
-Third look: Color me Fabulous-

-Thank you Kelly and Lauren sosososo much!!!!-
Thank you to my make-up artist Porsche Cooper, hair stylist Bethany Brill, photographer Jeremy James and of course, Kelly, one of the most talented and inspirational stylist out there! Thank you Hubert, for being a wonderful assistant that day too! All the outfits were from Tibi, hand picked and put together by her; she really has an eye for beauty and all things glamourous! I love you, FLIRT! none of this would’ve been possible without you guys – such a fun, young, and chic cosmetic line and team! They were all soo sweet, patient, and encouraging throughout the duration of the photo shoot too…Loveeeee you all, thank you team for such a fab day!
The 3 aways from that day?
1. Modeling is not my forte – physically was not made for it and mentally cannot take in 10 directions at once (Ex. “Tilt you head to the left, bring it down a little to the right, bring that that chin, open your mouth a little, eye look far out to the left…”).
2. Models do not have it easy – it is a super tiring job!
3. CHIN DOWN, chin down, and chin d o w n!
